Sounds like the LSN is to high. But really, you should read the tuning tread and try to get around some one that knows what they are doing. Take it to any track and be cool and someone will help.

weather my friend as in ambient temps can make the tune change
also is the motor new maybe the plug is bad
more then likely the lsn is lean but as stated above try reading the tuning bible it has some really useful tips that may help u and u will learn a lot for them

P.S
wen at idle does it sound more like a machine gun tin tin sound then its lean

it sounds normal at idle only when i rev it ,it then revs down only slightly then revs up hi if i rev again it gets higher but sounds like its about to peak ,if i brake as soon as i release brake its straight up high as in like full throtle
