It's running too rich. If you haven't had it tuned you need to, with a full system. How's your gas mileage been?

I've had the same issues for the past 6 months or so.

I've asked bren tune as I have the V3 map and they say it's not in the map.

Full Akra TI system. Never had this issue up until recently.
Have had both map and exhaust for over 2 years....

It's normal-ish if you don't have a cat.
