Maybe it's because you are running an SAFC. You might need a standalone to correctly tune the fuel with injectors that big.

Is it lean when you get into boost? Is your fpr adding fuel via a boost line? Is the vpc chip the correct one? Is the safc removing fuel or adding it?

Did you change anything to your set up right before it started running lean?
Wot or part throttle?

You will be civil on this site or you will be removed from it. Nothing anyone has said to you warrants an insult...

Tone it down or take it down the road.

A friend of mine (supraguy31)had a similar issue. he found that he had a pinched fuel line. R/R the motor so much it got pinched somewhere in the process.

Can you run that big of an injector with a 550 chip in your vpc?

Uh, did you see how much fuel pressure you have? I am assuming that is when your turbo hits.

Could be time for a new regulator.

Sounds like your regulator is going bad, or maybe a clogged fuelline or maybe you wired your stuff wrong.

brake it down and check stuff one by one, i am runnin the same setup but i am using 880 injectors and i have no problems.

Simple-
Put a fuel pressure guage on and watch it on the topend. should read base fuel pressure plus 1psi fuel per 1psi boost. example: 35psi base fuel at 30psi boost - fuel guage better read 65psi. If fuel pressure falls off now your chasing fuel delivery- pump, filter*,reg.,lines,etc.
if pressure ok its in the tune..

i agree!

also, how do you know you are running lean? and how lean are you talking?

^ Me too. If you haven't done the 12 volt mod also look at the FP relay. Check fuel pressure while doing a snap throttle test. Accept no more than a 2-3 psi drop with the regulator hose off and plugged. Check pump current if you can't find a fuel restriction. If it dips look at the pump relay.

had a similar problem with my setup. Later to be credited to a screwed up tune on my EMS, thanks to some dick who thought he knew how to tune Supras.
