for map #20 you can add only up to 2%. As kev said he used various AFR and it is different than the other maps

Forgot to say we use 5% ethanol so will I have to compensate for that?

I use map #20 with UK fuel which is probably same as yours. I have experimented adding more fuel but found it better as standard without any issues.

You will need to add more fuel to the map using ethanol.

i just have my second hand SMR :D
After done O2 mod second flies and removal of SAS i wanted to try something cheap for the air box.
i'm still on stock exaust so i deside to do the folowing mod because i notice that during the traffic while engine overheat the air intake snorkel suck all the hot air.
so i reverce the snorkel in order to face forward.
after a short test seems to my feeling quite better in terms of acceleration.
i have not test it a speed over 150 km/h
as i have no dyno results everything based on feeling.
if someone has dyno avail it will be great.
following the pics of the visual result.

Looks great mate we did simular mods to the standard air box mod in the early days before we had any after market air boxes, if you have a look in my mod book I mention it there. But great effort, your motor will respond well to this mod, thanks for posting.

yes Akra map now.
i'm not sure if akra map is tuned with with oem air box or not.
i'd like to know if there is a safe way in order to check A/F ratio in order to check and not run lean.
Kev may have an answer :?:

The only way to confirm the A/F ratio is on the Dyno or with a wide band O2 sensor & gauge.

wide band O2 sensor & gauge is nice for real time monitor.
do you think power commander Auto tune can offer real time monitor?
