my car smells rich, really strong, what to do?


hey guys i know the answer is right in front of me. I swapped my 440's to 550's and thats when it began to smell rich, big time. it was tuned for 440's. now that i put in the 550's and im piping in the front mount... what is the quick fix? the only problem is... its my daily driver so the little time im working on it, it has to be done so that i can drive it. what do i do? i planned on putting in the aem wideband and having it tuned again. any suggestions?

Put the old injectors back in until you can get it tuned again. That is the quick fix. You can put the injectors in in the parking lot of the tuning place. No point in running it pig rich.

As stated above, go with what your car is tuned to. Put the old injectors back in...

I see u have S-AFC u should the correction for the 550cc injectors in the s-afc at around -10% to start and work from there ...but u need some sort of feed back equipment like a datalogger or wideband to see what your trims are at and use those to tune the car ...
