Does that sound right?

Quite the opposite here. My tuner wouldnít tune it without a different MAP... as it maxed out the stock and he couldnít make clear adjustments. He provided a 4 bar and tuned accordingly.

As a separate post... Iíve done 100+ pages of reading in this thread and couldnít find an exact solution. Iím running a 210 non intercooled kit that I purchased new and self installed a couple of months ago. With this said itís an 80 mm pulley... and Iíve developed quite a belt squeak. I originally thought pulleys... ruled out idlers, replaced the tensioner, tried a new original length belt... same noise, upgraded to a gates RPM belt... noise got WORSE.

If I spray water or lubricant on the flat side of the belt the noise goes away for a moment, then comes right back.

Any ideas?
