	Landmark post - "you da Man!"   I think that those that are 
running more boost, or bigger turbos are probably forcing the flapper to 
the end of its travel, and sucking more air around it.   The ECU has no 
clue then how much air you are really getting and can only assume you're 
at the normal expected WOT point, so it delivers its max fuel 
allotment.   That's why cars with big turbos run so lean.   I can't 
believe we haven';t seen more holed pistons with all the big turbos 
running around!
