We had 5 different tuners/their customers we've been in touch with recently who were all having the same issue and tried the same things. I looked back and the only customers we had that didn't have the issues had stock map sensors. Since the CARB tune used a stock MAP sensor, that is why they were not having the issue.

It is for a few reasons, some of which I don't have the time to get into. But basically because of how the SC flows, the cam phasing is critical, and unlike turbos and the centrifugals; it creates a different flow pattern right at the runner and is the reason for the wobbly MAP signal.

In double checking and making a few phone calls we know that not the omni, the OEM honda, nor the denso IAT based map sensors will work. I think any >1.3 bar sensor will have the same issue when intercooled.
