Default 87 oct, new crome basemap, not working

OK so here's the deal, I've got the turbo kit on the hatch (RHb5 vj11 smic 390's ect..) and I'm about ready to fire it up.

Alright I've got a CEL while the car is running, but when I jump it to read the code it stays solid. I turn the key on the fuel pump primes and then the light goes out and comes back on real quick and stays on. no blinking or anything. the idle is also messed up a little but I'm going to be working on that. What would cause that CEL

Here's my basemap I made, if anyone want to look at it. It's the first one Ive done.

you can tune for 87, and i'd rather run 87 at the expense of 10hp and an extra 5 dollars a fillup

Drive it around. Keep it out of boost. Just how different is a turbo car from an na car when the intake manifold doesn't have positive pressure? If you're really worried take the spring out of the wg(ext.) or disconnect the rod(internal) then run it out of gas...

JD will tell you that you need not add octane to drive a turbo car. you'll just reduce the fun of being turbo only slightly

Sounds like some good ideas. Just wanted to see what other people did in this situation.

Or just pop a line off the fuel filter and jump the pump at the relay and drain it into a gas can and use it somewhere else. Just don't blow up anything!

Well what do you guys think would be a good starting point for ignition in a basemap. I just set my basemap at 1.3 per lb boost. should I go more? What about fuel, How should I go about richening the maps, through turbo efficency? or fuel multiplier?
