I can help you, What exactly is your problem?. What size injectors are you compensating for? DO you know your fuel trims? and have you been logging? Make sure you have the initial setings right befor you mess with anything

Well I just wanna adjust it to where it is safe to drive without any damage while I wait to get it tuned. I got 550 but planning on putting 720cc. Don't know fuel trims and have not been logging.

What are you using to compensate for the larger injectors? A logger isn't too expensive, that will give you a idea of whats going on.

What boost level are we talking about?. What fuel pump? What regulater at what ratio under boost? I can't help you if you dont tell me everything.
Grab the MMCD freeware and start playing around with it.

Read through this.

Just chill.. Haven't had time to get on.. Got a 255 walbro fuel pump with about 20 lbs of boost.. Have checked out that logger and hoping to get one here in a week.. Also looked at the link above and has really helped out a lot.. Gonna wait for that logger so I can get deeper into this.
