Is it safe for us to assume the car wasn’t running rich until you applied the Stratified tune?

How long did you run the Stratified tune before these maladies surfaced?

Have you gone back to running the OEM tune to confirm the richness problem & other maladies go away?

Is it running rich without WOT? I get into the upper 10s sometimes during heavy throttle, but otherwise AFR is always hanging around 14.7.

I get the same thing, but it's always been like that. Occasional fuel smell at first cold start (only lasts for a few seconds). Steam occasionally when warming up (very little) when temps are lower (50s right now).

Never thought it cause for concern. But ill let others chime in.

I dont think you're going to get much visibility in this section of the forum.

@Duece McCracken may be able to move it for you.
Hey, it's time for my mid morning nap!

What ever happened to those moderator candidates??? Months it will be!
