How so? How does it differ from the code loaded into the PNP originally? (edit - as in what's so different that it can do all those wonderful things) Are there any drawbacks?

I may do this before dynotime!

I haven't paid to register the software, but it is the nagging window that comes up saying you can register it for $20.

You must not have the newest version. When on the internet, have it check for upgrades and get the newest version. It's got some good improvements/updates worth having. But it does nag the **** out of you. I thought I read that when you buy a PNP, it comes with a license for the software, but that could be my memory being factitious.

Awesome!

On step 7, does it know which firmware to load?

Of course, I was just wondering if it knows which to load or if it prompts you.

Grr

So I figure I am upgrading from standard MS code, so I answer "Y" when prompted. It asks me to install a boot jumper (), then the DL fails.

NO. You're NOT upgrading from standard code. You're going from one version of EXTRA code to another version of EXTRA code. The answer is NO.

you wiped the code completely, you probably will need that boost jumper now.

Well **** me!

I tried it again, answering NO, and it worked. Loaded my old .msq and she started right up, but runs/idles way rich. I suppose now is as good a time as any to get schooled on this VE analyzer I've heard so much about!

Oh, also, in megatune my AFR "gauge" reads in the single digits (doesn't match tangible gauge), where was the menu to change to "AEM linear"?? We had it before but I couldn't find it just now.

For whatever reason, I didn't! Weird, because I was expecting to have to after all that.

Cool. You're going to have to retune the entire fuel table, and you're going to idle rich as ballz until you've got the coolant related density BS figured out. I'm still working on that myself.

You'll need to go to the CONFIGURATOR to set up for the WB. And you'll want to check your closed loop settings and target table.

Great, thanks. So I suppose a fix is in the works for the coolant related density BS?

I'm about to go datalog a bit. Ben, what do you use for targets when "tuning" with VE analyzer?

Cool, thanks!

So, I tried to manipulate the settings.ini to use the WB02 (changed the NB to "unset" and AEM linear to "set") and no dice, because ******* windows won't let me save it. I did about a 15-20 minute datalog anyway, let's see if MLV will convert the values for me or not...

open up megatune and go to file configurator....change the lambda sensor there....

or copy file to desktop, change it and save, then overwrite the file.
