Shit man, nothing like a vendor who was so happy to sell you something once one day turn into a complete apathetic stranger the next huh?

Well anyway, I was thinking about your issue about running rich. If you're running a "stock" motor now with the upgraded injectors, I'd pull them. They're dumping more fuel into a system which doesn't need it. So you are running rich and the ECu is going to try to compensate. I was running 200cc injectors on my old Miata which only needed 160-180cc. I just kept them on from the turbo system it used to have.

Anyway once I pulled the turbo off but left the old injectors, the car idled really off and I could see unburnt fuel dripping from the tail.

Once I swapped the stock injectors back in, problem solved.

Not saying this'll work in your case, but if it does, a little sunshine on your rainy day.

Here's to hoping for someone to do the right thing for ya.
