I installed a Greddy Turbo Kit on my 2000 civic ex and now I'm idling at about 200 rpms. And sometimes my car doesnt start without me constantly pushing the gas. Im only running 5.5 psi. Everything else on the car is stock except for 9mm spark plug wires and bosche platinum 4 plugs. Could it be that since the plugs wires are touching the intake that maybe the volts are somehow being cyphened away from the plugs? My friend had that problem. Or is it that i need an ignition system? Also i installed an autometer air/fuel ratio meter and it seems to be functioning but it says im running rich even with a turbo. Is that right? Sorry for all the questions
