    You’ll just tune around it. You tune the the “weakest” hole. But you will be leaving power on the table.
    Unless you can tune each cylinder. Doubt that’s possible with oem ecm.

    If only it were that simple; a "slight difference" is not the case or where in the rpm range(s) it occurs (boost / THRO POS). How to identify individual cylinders, and when, is another issue.

    If you're insisting on using the Apache Intake with relatively high boost, you best ask those who have experienced engine damage. Better yet - talk to the Professionals (those regularly installing FA on OEM Apache engines) who are (well) aware of the problem for their advice.

    I'm sure there are tuners that have tables to get around it now. I think it was the initial runs/ table building that the problem was really evident. No one was really expecting it to lean out a whole bank, especially based on how well it flows N/A.

    I was considering a procharger, but am leaning towards a Maggie now.

    All my car funds are on hold indefinitely anyhow, my youngest son was just accepted to Berklee School of Music in Boston. We have to see how tuition is going to play out.

    Bright side is, I'll be running it as is next year and should have my launch perfected by then lol

    Only one problem...I don't work lol. Not to put my business out there, but I'm a disabled veteran. As long as the house is clean before Friday, I can race :-)
