Hard to say how rich it would need to go on the wideband reading all the cylinders to average out the rich and lean cylinders mid 12s is a good start the difference from 12.5 to 13 is only like 5hp. I would put the wideband in the side that has the most number of lean plugs and go off that reading and tune that side to 12.4 12.5 but it's hard to make power with 8 holes all making different hp fighting each other haha
Picture shows driver side on left and passenger side on right.
Talk about that mani says with front elbow the drivers side runs leaner and that is where W/B O2 is located.

Looking at the datalog, it's sitting mid 12's at about 4000rpm but leaning out between 5000 - 6000rpm into the 13's. Have a look at the last email I sent through with the WB data table.

Maybe in the next couple of weeks when the alert level drops I'll be able to shoot down your way for a cruise and some tuning.

Looks like passenger side is leaner on more plugs than the drivers side in your pic. I would do a log with wideband in each side

Allports mucked around with an early come twin for a customer when first ones had flat top cover...he said they'd work better with air splitter to disperse the air.

It looked like an upside down toblerone underneath to cover.

I've noticed alot of the new ls intakes & even plazmaman manifolds have throttle up higher over plenum then curves down.Bliss Custom do it to on their new holden v8 manifold....will view it up close next summernats.

The proper copper (as in metal not police) spec ?

Yes proper copper (and had to pay accordingly). But also a bit thicker and slightly bigger trans cooler than the stock replacement.

Mind me asking what you paid for it.. I was quoted $600 about 6 months ago for a 3 core copper rad

Yes, well aware of the price premium for those.

Well worth it though.....esp when taking into account the dollars spent on inferior products that are now at the tip.
