logged load seems high?

I just turned up the boost on my car to 22psi and on my my last few logs i have done the peak load i am seeing is 300. The only mods i have are injen intake, upper and lower ic pipes, manual boost controller, test pipe and tephramod v7. I don't know what my load should be but from reading Merlins EcuFlash EVO 7-8-9 TUNING GUIDE this seems high for the few mods i have? I have read that a boost leak could cause this but wouldn't that mess with my AFR?

Yes i would check for Boost leaks, And it wouldnt really mess up your AF reading because all your high load AF values are usually rich. with 22 psi you should b seeing 240ish load. I see 270 load with about 25 psi.

I plan to still check for leaks but my AFR doesn't go rich it stays at what my map is set at?

Hmm...I haven't seen my logs in a long time, but I'm at 28psi and remember seeing up to 340 on the load.

Not how much, what type. Are you logging 2 byte load? Loadcalc?

Asside from having a possible component issue, you need to ensure you are logging the correct compensated load.
Spark-Load has Baro correction and will read a little higher than Fuel-Load, which has Baro + Air temp correction.

Un-compensated load will read noticably higher than either Spark or Fuel load.
