Default Did something dumb?

Ok, so got the car running, everything was fine. Went to adjust the timing. Adjusted the trigger angle to 68 and accidentally hit enter. Now the car will not idle correctly without surging. Timing light shows 0*. No matter what I do, I cannot get it back to idling correctly. Any ideas?

pushing enter should have only made it burn the changes. your map started at a trigger angle of 65, so the 2 degree change should have done little. are all the other settings still the same?

Everything else is still the same as stated in your instructions. Followed it step by step.

Brain, do you mind posting or sending the maps that the MS came with? If I can't figure this out, I would like to resort back to the start. Thanks.

I fixed it. Can't work on my car during the day, so I will give this another shot tonight.
