    Smile Can I run my new set up this summer safely?

    Hey guys! I bought a stock 2008 gtx 215 limited last winter. First thing I did was buy an X charger and 42 package. I also installed new wear ring and carbon seal kit. The ski performed great all summer. Now that it is winter again, I am upgrading to an external intercooler installed above the tunnel. I bought a used manifold, removed the flame arrester and replaced my internal ic manifold. I also have installed a 4 kanaflex to boot. Everything else on the ski is stock. I do plan more stuff next winter, but wanted your guys thoughts on running this setup next season as is. Will the afr be ok as is for the summer? I have read many varied posts on this subject. Thanks for any input.

    I ran a 127 wheel on 42's, 4" air and a Fizzle HE cooler with afr's @ low 12's. 6 years on my set up with no issues. Sold the ski 3 years ago and still going stong.
    I service it for the new owner.

    mine ran very rich ,RRFPR was able to lower the fuel pressure and get the afr where they needed to be , 58 pounds is too much fuel
