    My understanding is Rob actually has the whole vehicle now down here in the Costa Mesa area. I haven't seen him in maybe 9 months, but the last I talked to him he said he wanted to get it up and...

    Obvious question... why are you still running XP? Haha. Pretty straightforward to move over to Windows 7.

    They're probably Sumitomos. Don't waste your time trying to find them. Even if you do find them, the minimum purchase quantity will probably be outrageous. It's generally advisable to pigtail sensor...

    Dare I ask how much "jumping all over the place" constitutes? If your idle is "2000-ish" and full throttle is "22000-ish", you're probably going to see plenty of movement in all the way up to the 10...

    Haha. Boy, talk about making big leaps in a logical argument. Correlation versus causation... anyone, anyone? There were thousands of reasons those programs were different and ended up differently....

    Variable fuel pressure... like every post-throttle referenced fuel pressure regulator? ;) In my mind, the idea there is to maintain the same pressure delta across the injector at all times,...

    Agreed. Frankly, the fancy benefits of sequential fuel and ignition (fuel timing and individual cylinder ignition timing) are often overlooked due to lack of program resources. That said, I have...

    Oh snap. You're right. I don't know what I was thinking. The battery voltage comp in the Motec is a value in microseconds. In the Motec scheme, "The table value is a plus or minus time offset...

    The 0 psi value for the MAP comp should be zero, not 100... but you'll probably never get there even on a massive lift, but it's worth making it correct.

    Battery voltage comp is used to compensate...

    TPS is known to work well... pretty much always. You're not going to find it on an emissions vehicle, but it's damn handy and easy to use on pretty much all race cars... yes, even turbo cars. ;) MAP...

    Your laptop is *significantly* faster than any engine controls or sensors on your car. The fastest way to tune things accurately is going to be to use the logging function. I suppose you don't "need"...

    Matt said it way better than me! Yes, that's what I mean. It works pretty darn well once it's dialed in. It can also be very effective at keeping the engine from doing the classic "FSAE surge" at...

    Quick lambda is a nice feature in theory, but rarely as useful as you might imagine. The only time I've found it very useful is on a load dyno where you can very tightly control the rpm and load on...

    Agreed with most of the stuff above. The most important thing for your first time is "keep things simple". Often times, your first time on the dyno with ANY new setup will be an exercise in...

    Don't get too excited about the throttle body one. I submitted a detailed proposal in 2005 with all sorts of rational justification. The arguments I heard back were somewhat non-rational. There are...

    The throttling device(s) has to be before the restrictor. You really need to read through the rules some more and think about what they're saying in practical terms. If you can't make a simple intake...
