I messed with the idle valve settings a little bit and richened up the idle at 30kpa and it just sat there idling for like 10 minutes

The wb02 is still tweaking though, the gauge reads just fine, but on the adaptronic its showing 18.0 no matter what. I then richen it up like crazy, and it goes down to 17.9.....so its getting a signal, just a weak one I guess? I'll have to mess with it some more and figure it out I guess. Changed the settings to read off the narrowband for now.

Then I took the car for a drive around the block. about 1/10th mile total, up my street and back, so no far driving or anything. It is VERY hesitant upon throttle tip in (I guess)..Like I give it a teeny bit of gas and it hesitates, then JERKS the car forward and starts bucking. once I keep it steady though it drives normal.

One thing that really bothered me though: the gauge reads extremely lean while driving. Now I got this map from Stein, so it is fairly well set up, and yet it is still way lean (from what the gauge says).....I'll have to get that straightened out....

so thats the update
Send me one of your logs so I can have a look. You have the oxygen sensor under corrections set to narrowband and the second serial port box under special functions set to your wide band right?

vlad, your WB is definitely reading wrong. stop trying to richen up the car--that's what the bucking likely is--probably very rich at tip in.

what's the narrow band sensor showing you?

Travis
He should if he used my ECU file. It would have carried all of these settings forward.

He did change some stuff around though on the phone. I judt can't remember what. It was working fine at one point with a 15.3 or so at idle.

I'll be contacting you and Stein often
I'll see your bet and raise you one... It seems like most of you guys are turbo'd... I'll be doing the SC thing, which I'm sure will breaking new trails.

It really shouldn't make any difference. You are still dealing with the same concept-more fuel and adjusted timing to make up for more air. There's nothing tied to the turbocharger per se, so same end result.
