    Found a local who works in my city and has a spare oem piece he'll give me. Picking it up tomorrow, swapping hopefully this weekend and then double hopefully finally making some solid progress on this tune; what an ordeal this has been.

    I'd glance at the forum from time to time and was confused for a while why Sharks kept replying to this thread. Finally took the time to read.

    I know this is kind of a hijack-necro reply but good luck with your new build (both you guys) and thanks for the support during a rough time.

    Cracked ass XSP has been out since last weekend, replaced by an ol' reliable oem manifold from a local with 250k+ cumulative miles on it. Idle log "looks great" and AFR at WOT seems to be oscillating in lower increments from target than it was before, but tuna still doesn't like what it's doing. A buddy is supposed to be mailing out a pair of spare o2 sensors today for me to try, but I'm otherwise pretty much out of ideas.

    I started working on this tune in June and we're still only on v1.4 of the 93 base map; I am quite frankly beyond frustrated, as the homies I chat with on fb can attest to. I have smoke and boost leak tested multiple times and fixed the small leaks I found, replaced the vc gaskets and fasteners, VVT seal, etc. but there always seems to be something new to hold us up on progressing. If anyone has any fresh ideas, I am all ears.

    During these times of despair just look through failed build threads and people who got bent over by shady builders and you will feel so much better.

    This hand looks too clean for someone who just worked on their car. Interesting!

    If that hand looks clean to you, I feel bad for any girl you get to third base with. :tearsofjoy:

    I swapped out the primary o2 tonight with one that came off of @KiwiFlavor 's old car (so you know the herpes on it are good and seasoned in), and cranked the preload on my Turbosmart bov all the way to full heavy setting. New logs are showing afr range of about 11.6-11.9, whereas it was fluctuating between 10.5-12.5 previously. Logs have been sent off to the tuna for confirmation but I am cautiously optimistic that progress has been made. If not, my bff @JohnnyTightlips has an oem dp gasket in the mail to me that I can swap out as the next possible solution to my woes.

    Crossing fingers, toes and weiner for good news after the logs have been reviewed.

    I will make the same suggestion I've made to others for trouble shooting, gas can, matches, fire, roll down a hill, and you're #dun trouble shooting. Insurance takes care of the rest.

    I dont recommend doing it at the track though. Insurance is less than helpful then.

    Update: primary o2 seems to have fixed it. Now I'm just playing the usual e-tune waiting game, hoping we can manage to finish this shit up before I lose the weather. Still on the 93 basemap, anxious to get PI going.
