This is just a suggestion. Put a thermocouple in the exhaust manifold to monitor temp. Engines have been melted by running at the AFR your running at for extended periods. How is your water temp.? Is it staying were it use to be or is it up? Monitoring this might help save your engine. Also if anyone wants to do this with a cat. (coyote x doesn't) it will quickly melt the face if it is a close coupled cat. I've seen this happen lots of times during development of new cals. Just food for thought.

That's what I am scared of. I just got an EGT on ebay but not sure where to put it and what is acceptable temp to run.
I think the water temp rising will be too late to fix anything.
My AutoZone AFR gauge is too vague and has no number but will give me an idea how things are running.
