Cable fits snug under the boot, you'll have to bend it a little.

I just had mine hooked up last night, no special voodoo to connect it. Were you idling the car? I don't think I've connected to the LC-1 with just the ignition on, always have done it with the car running.

If you were able to run LM Programmer, you shouldn't have any connectivity issues when running logworks. Maybe try configuring a different COM port. Mine is set for COM1. Quick look through logworks doesn't show any configuration settings for preferred COM port, maybe it does a scan of all avalible at start up? LM Programmer possibly does it differently.

Check the version of logworks you are running. IIRC the older one did not work displaying real time data with the LC-1. The new one is on the innovate website and works fine.

Just an aside: I had logworks on my computer and tried running a"Hyjackthis" registry analyzer and logworks kept on starting.

I got it. I think I opened logworks when Programmer was still utilizing the serial port. Got it to calibrate and I'm in business. Made my first log of my 15.7 AFR idle (I think the dyno's wideband was off).

I wish I was smart enough to thinking of running the wires under the boot. It would have made for a simpler install. But oh well.

I would be inclined to think the 15.7 is in error with your WBO2 in that location. Should be 14.7, and lower when cold start.

I had my rx-7 AFM opened when I was on the dyno and tinking around with the tension. One click made a signifigant difference in the idle AFR. My AFR plot on the dyno would just drop off the charts rich, so I'm inclined to think there sensor wasn't calibrated correctly. I can calibrate it again real fast and see what it does, but I think it I tinker with the AFM I can get it back to 14.7. (plus I tuned it to more like 15.2 on the dyno)

If your car is not going to 14.6 while in open loop, then your calibration is probably off. Remember to remove the O2 sensor from the pipe to recalibrate. The location should not have anything to do with it since you are running catless.

Is your stock O2 sensor still in place, or are you simulating narrow band to the ECU?

Stock O2 is still in place. My idle AFR is off due to my RX-7 AFM tension I'm positive of it. I had it leaned out at idle to try to lean out the rest of the AFR in boost. I was hitting < 10:1.

It was my AFM. It's really really sensitive to its position. When I had it on the dyno I had it tuned to like 15.2, but it was mounted in a fashion different than how it usually sits, so I could tune it. When I flipped it over and put it back, the AFR at idle changes almost a full point leaner.

But I got it tuned to a rock steady 14.7 idle now. Still reaching 10.5:1 at redline, but mostly staying around 12.1:1 untill it drops down past 5k. When my BEGi AFPR arrives I'll be able to really tune it up.

Interesting. When I last had my LM-1 in the car, my idle was between 14.7-15.2 (fluctuating)....this is with an RX-7 AFM loosened 3 clicks and 1.8L injectors.

Are you saying your idle AFR does not fluctuate about half-a-point or so in either direction?

not really, maybe .1-.3 points. I can post the plot of my idle later. Laptop is still chillen in the garage.

I don't think I'd ever buy anything but a AEM at this point.

They just work. Easy to install.. Etc.

The AEM has proven to be less accurate that other WB02's. Im not saying its junk, but it reads more rich than it really is. Other wb02's are just as easy to install too....
