do u have a link?

Most of the videos are of installs with out much mention of the vac/pressure lines.

UPDATE- I just spent another useless video search. I challenge anyone to show me a decent video. Turns out the manual I received was wrong.

Thanks I watched that in entirety ..there is no mention of where / how to set up a, b, c port.

I just got thru to them on the fone and its all cleared up... The newer units do not have the c port and my user manual was defective.

It goes through each scenario. Port C goes to boost reference, then they play around with A and B, going to vacuum or atmosphere and how responsive each one is.

watching to the end, it says most responsive is Port A hooked up to vac, with B to atmosphere, and C to boost reference (before throttle body)

OP just spend a useless search looking for it. He challenges anyone to find his brain.





Sorry OP, it was too easy

Yes I watched it.

This confused me since this is not what the manual states as to how to hook it up.

Yea I know my brain is weak and useless. It seems to be doing a pretty good job of putting me in-charge of a $40,000 machine.....at my day job.

I've been working on my car for a long time and there is a lot going on.

Just trying to save some time here.

Turns out the user manual I had contained a faulty picture/diagram that did not even show the C port.

I appreciate all the care and support and entertainment for those that have nothing better to do.

Thanks

Hehe $40k that's cute, I've got $40k worth of servers I deal with on a daily basis, not to mention the $6k per license per year for the testing software used on those servers...

But the Scalability testers are the crazy ones, they'll throw $3-5 MILLION worth of hardware at some of our projects... ****'s crazy, but when you need to simulate 100,000 users...
