So when you hook up your laptop, the gauges display something other than the defaults?

Are you plugged into the right rs232 port?

the gauges do nothing it never says ready to load map, its like my laptop is not reading that the ecu is there but the ecu has power and is hooked up by the instructions on boundarys site, i get the typical sound you get when you hook anything into your laptop but i dont get a response when i open the wari file so i can load the base map to the ecu. it has me puzzled

Just checking. Could be your usb->serial unit. Can you verify that it works correctly with another device?

i dont have anything else to hook it up to to check it, i assume it works since when i plug the usb into my laptop i hear the sound and it says new hardware found but it wont load the hardware says no driver found and the wari program shows no reponse no port opened.

Ah, ok.

You need to get a driver for your USB->serial unit. It is the USB converter that windows is asking you for the driver, not the adaptronic.

Once the USB converter is working properly you should now have a COM port that WARI will be able to talk to.

so i got it to start just need to get the cable for the wide band so i can tune to the target afr, when setting the idle how much fuel did you have to add to get it to idle right i had it past 30% and it was not affecting the afrs i dont want to add to much but i still think it was not enough im my opinion
