Sounds like what I had going on for a little bite. It most likely that since you are running more power you need a retune. Your MAF maybe over loaded and needs Vince to retune. Or pull your MAF and spray it down with some cleaner it could be dirty. And check your vac. lines.

Yeah the thing is, it has gotten progressively worse as I drove it. So I feel like it isn't the tune.. But maybe it is? I'm thinking it might be a busted MAF (I HOPE) or a line that has come lose. I just pray it isn't a timing chain.. There is a noise that is coming from around the oil filter area. However I recall hear it faintly when I picked the car up, so I assumed it was nothing since Tracy and RX still had it.

Sending good vibes out to you. Hope it's just something simple like a hose. I remember that feeling after installing my black ice. Forgot to put the vacuum hose on and it was running all rough and then dying. I was tripping hard. I've already been through the whole blown motor thing. I looked my engine over and saw it and then went "duh" and hooked the hose back up and it purred like a kitten again.

May you have one of those "duh" moments too.

Still having issues, it appears it may be a failed MAF. Unfortunately all the dealerships in a ~80 mile radius do not have them in stock so I am getting one over night shipped here and will be here around 8am tomorrow morning. If this doesn't solve the issue I have no idea what it is and it might need to be trailered back to Tracy's shop.

*SPOILER ALERT*
It seems that the damaged MAF might be the logical problem here. Tracy just built a new over drive pulley that is pushing out about 8psi of boost rather than the normal pulley which was 4.5-5psi of boost.

Everyone say a prayer for me please!

Good luck and hope this is the issue. I had the same issue at one point and cleaning my MAF solved it for me. There is alot of forced air being pushed passed it so it is logical. I'm thinking of replacing mine also. The lil wire looks like it's bending itself with all the force. And mine seems to be splitting at the house that collects the air samples. Gotta love FI lmao. I'm all for "gotta pay to play" lol, and I got murdered today by a BMW 745. Wow those thing go.

95% sure it is the MAF.....same symptoms Cisco had and a few others.
So it's a good idea to get a back up MAF sensor?

Just checked my CEL and had 8 codes. A misfire on cylinder 1,2,3,4,5 and 2 misfires on cylinder 6 and a random misfire. So thankfully the CEL doesn't look to be anything TOO serious atm. Should have the new MAF around 9 a.m. eastern time. So hopefully you won't hear anything from me tomorrow because that would mean I'm a happy camper and on the road back home.

Yes like Tracy said on our first test run I busted my original MAF lol (by the way I'm Cisco). And my replacement that I have now will need replacing soon also. So I don't doubt that it's your MAF. Mine is starting to idle a little rough and will need replacing soon also. I will post a picture soon of why I think they go bad after forcing so much air. We definitely need a redesign. I'm thinking this is a draw back of boosting over 4-5psi's. Because with my Torque app I am able to read my air flow and before upping to 6psi's things were nice. At 6psi's Vince has told me that it's the MAF being maxed out also. But he can still tune it. Just takes a few tries.

This is reassuring in the sense that it sounds similar to what has happened to me. It started about 170 miles south of Tallahassee, just a rough idle and a misfire going up a hill. But then it got worse to the point of where my car was going up a large hill (rpms were building) and the engine died. It wouldn't start until I changed my spark plugs (which were nasty) but even after that it ran very very rough. So its possible the MAF was going bad which resulted in unnecessary fuel being added which ruined my spark plugs (someone want to confirm?)

I'll take it easy going home and try not to build much boost and possibly ruin another MAF and be stranded in the middle of no where.

Cisco, how did your car act right before the MAF went out?

No, just looked really "burnt" covered in soot like the tail pipes on our cars.

When me and Tracy first took it out I punched it and the car just died and didn't want to start until we replaced the MAF. Right after I got my new 6psi tune from Vince I had maxed out the MAF again. But it still was working but I was idling real bad. It was up and down between 300-800RPM's. I cleaned the MAF and it helped alittle and thats when I seen my sensor wire was bent from the forced air. I started to run rough again and that's when I upgraded to the NGK plugs which helped also. It started again just not as bad yesterday it was up and down about a difference of 50-100RPM's. So this morning I looked at my MAF and it's splitting now lmfao. So this is the main issue we have now. If the MAF isn't working right the plugs will not ark right. This isn't a RX problem it's just a price we pay to go fast.

The red circle is where the air sample is collected. The Yellow is where it exits. This small hole can't handle all that extra forced air. Like I said mine is starting to split in half with all the boost. But I found a MAF that I will test out to see if it solves our lttle issue.

Wow sounds like you guys are pushing some serious power!!! Just another testament of Tracy's workmanship. I hope you can get that sorted out. (Please break the 500rwph mark Baylor or CSme!)

Doesn't look like my MAF is splitting. Looks pretty good actually. I took pictures with my phone. I'll see if I can get them uploaded.
