For some users though the retune is better if they are on the WOT a lot, generally driving hard. It's all preference and many will scoff saying it's not needed and a waste of time and money, others will see it as life saving and worth every penny/cent.
Actually when you richen the Closed Loop mixture with a wideband controller, it also adjusts the fuel in all Open Loop areas including WOT and Warm-Up through a process called adaptation. The 1150s and 1200s have that for sure and I suspect the 1100 does as well but haven't measured it yet. As an example if you set the wideband lambda to 0.94, WOT gets 6% richer and the warmup gets 6% richer after an adaptation period, I've measured the effect and presented recorded WOT and warmup AFR data.
