well it sounds like the ignitor burnt out...not sure why, since it was unplugged. the only time i made the mistake of not unplugging it, i simply lost my tach signal. Unfortunately i dont have a spare igntor to send. mine got lost in the mail it seems.

I did notice the first few times I went to crank the car the tach would jump all over the place. The car did start a few times but like I said it ran like poop.

reburn map, reconnect ignitor.
Just so im sure, what 3 files are you referring to? If I didnt do that right could that be the problem?

ok, I tested my ignitor in my friends car and it wouldnt start. Then I tried my friends ignitor and the car wouldnt start with the map I was using this moning. I uploaded my very first map and it started right up. Any ideas why that map wouldnt work anymore? Im just glad I know what the problem is now. Now I either need to find an ignitor or wait for Savington to send my cops.

I got an ignitor. Pretty much brand new. I bought it new about 6 months ago and then I changed over to COP's. $50 shipped if you want it.

I redid this several times since I got the new ignitor and my readings are still off. CLT is off by about 25*. Can you tell me what next please.

While were at it how do I get my tach to match the tach in MS. There about 400 rpms apart. MS reading higher.
