Default If it aint broke (yet), should I fix it??

I'm currently running 12 lbs. of boost on a stock D16z. The only problems Ive had so far are broken motor mounts and a blown head gasket. The mounts were replaced and the head gasket upgraded to a cometic unit. The only engine management is a vortech FMU. The fuel curve doesn't lean out at all, even under full boost. I've been running this set up daily for about 3 months, Should i upgrade the engine management, or fuel system if i havent had any problems with it? Or do I have a ticking timebomb on my hands?

From what I've read, you should most definately upgrade your engine management to avoid a nice big, blown up engine.

If you do go to larger injectors etc dont expect a basemap to be some miracle. The car will need to go on a wideband with a skilled guy pressin the keys. Depending on your area there a few here on the baord that can help
