I have a K&N intake system, with a CycloneFuelSaver that fits perfectly into it, and a LFP Big Mouth Single Blade Throttle Body for my lightning. I found that the parts worked well together but it seemed like I was getting lag from my stock air flow sencer and it seemed it was not correcting it right...

I got the MAFia to hopefully correct the lag I was getting... I later found out it is mostly made for when you up the PSI boost past 10... I figered I would hook it in and put the stock setting in... and also try the 5 percent lean and 5 percent rich settings... figered why not...

I found that the lean setting seemed to work really well... The rich seemed almost heavy and the gas just seemed to sink as I hit the gas...

I found the the 5% lean seemed to work really well and even more power... I was looking up and reading some stuff on running lean. I found alot of people where saying that it over heats the engine and is hard on the parts inside...

I did test it at night in hawaii which is alot cooler then the day... but the lean seemed to work great...

I am wondering about damage... or if it was the parts that made it run well even though it was 5% lean... I am really mixed up on this...

Ummm...what the heck is a cyclone fuel saver, and why did you not think to remove it first...it has NO place in a 380 HP supercharged performance truck.

The Cyclone is just a piece that goes in the intake that spins the air... In theary... I figered it was free... for some reason it came in the truck when i bought it second hand... I put it in and then out... It actually seemed to make a little difference so I left it in... So if I took it out or left it in what do you think about my question...

Here is a link to the Website... if you wanted to look at the cyclone thing... I was on the fence many times of taking it out but you can feel a difference with it in... although not much...

Well, I'd still say get rid of the gizmo, its prolly hurting more than it is helping.

Best bet here is to get the truck to a dyno and check the A/F at idle and at WOT to be sure all is well, the Mafia should not be used as a tuning aid, better to make actual adjustments to the tune throught the Predator.

Thank you for the info... I was thinking the Predator is the way to go... I do have one other problem... I am in Hawaii on the main island and there is no Diablo Sports custom tunners... Do I just take to a place an Dyno tune anywhere... Get some help doing it...

You might want to try our dealer locator and if that doesn't get you anything I am sure one of our dealers here in the USA could email tune for you.
