do you have a scantool such as scanmaster or turbolink? what are your numbers at idle? also what chip are you running? chip will determine fuel useage...if you have an adjustable fuel pressure regulator turn up the fuel a bit...ANY kind of vacuum leak will cause your car to run lean...exhaust leaks also will cause a lean condition...check all hoses and such

If your motor is injesting oil ,that will cause detonation.What makes you think the car is running lean? :confused:
