Tune 'n' 'charge 'n' tune

Turn OFF all of the enrichments until you've got a decent base map put together. Throttle response won't be great, but you should be able to get very good drivability even with the enrichments off. KISS. Fight your demons one at a time.

Idle tuning can be a big ol' gnarly demon to figure out. I can probably save you some time.

Push Harder - Drive as close to the limit of your tires as possible.
Suck Less - Drive something resembling a proper racing line.

Right on. Base map demon first. I'll tell the others to form a single file line... :snicker:

Made a little progress today. Adjusted a couple other settings I missed, and got some low load AFRs reasonable. Idle and start are a little better, too. :)
