I have a 240sx with an E38 ecm with cammed 6.0. Just added a turbo and bigger injectors(SEP1000 Long) and got the car to start today by pulling alot of fuel with VE table. However it doesnt seem to be responding to my corrections anymore. I have a new map sensor install GM 12592525 and i also changed the values to - linear 312kpa and offset -11.31. Cant get the car to idle unless my foot is on the pedal. its definitely wayy rich. if I use hp tuners to clear codes it runs a little better but quickly goes back. I read that its supposed to fail the MAF so it will run speed density. David did help me with my Injector data input but now I feel like im Fighting something but dont know at this point. Doesnt seem to correct based on my VE table inputs. Any help, tips, suggestions please?

You also need to set the DTC for P0101, P0102 and P0103 to show MIL on first occurrence, no SES (so the light won't come on).

I think I did that but I'll recheck, ended up being the injectors data. The flow rate wasn't in the correct unit so I was waaayyyyyyy offf.Finally got thr car to idle, had to raise it up from 850 to like 1300 and it sits at around 1k. Tried pulling some from the ve but doesn't seem to get above .85-88. I was gonna try a little more but after my I see my last 2 5% pulls didn't give a result I left it at that for now. A couple pulls down the street and I definitely have some more work to do. I'll post a log and tune of what I have so far. Just wanted to give thanks and no I didn't have the mil on. I did it on one of my other tunes but since my injectors data was trash i started over. Just turned them on mil on first error and no checks on SES enable

Okay so here's an update. I was waiting on a alternator but now im back at it but it does seem to be chagning according to my VE table adjustments. It seems like it is when i hit 2 step but at idle I cant get it above .80-.85 no matter how much I take away. I'll attach the tunes and the logs with before and after changes. Also I dont know if it matter but when I clear codes it seems to track a little better and hits target idle. I will attach a log of this also. Thank you guys for all your help!
