Turboxs Stage 2 HELP!!!

Hello I installed a turboxs utec yesterday and I know they come rich and need some custom tuning. I figured the stage 2 map off the turboxs site would just basically plug and play and be good till I learned more about tuning. I ran stage 2 to and at about 4000 rpms with wot my check engine light blinks and feels like the car cuts out in 1st and 2nd gear. I was wondering if anyone had a tuned stage 2 map I could use. Or if someone could tell me what I need to change fuel, boost, timing or all 3. If someone could please help id greatly appreciate it if you need more info just let me know. THANK YOU

Did you get the UTEC on the cheap?

No codes? Just a flashing CEL?

I wouldn't mess with UTEC at all. I'm not going to be any help.

Find a UTEC tuner (if you don't mind you ECU being "locked" after the tune)

Good luck
