Did you adjust the specific setting #1 shown in this image to lock it at 10 degrees?



If so, I'd like to do a bit of testing to see why the timing was so erratic. Set it to 10 degrees fixed timing, verify that you're getting the timing still jumping, and take a data log. Post the data log here or email it to me.

93 CA car is different than federal 93. Different computer. Different wiring to the injectors (sequential).

There would have to be some wiring changes IF he has a 93 CA

At this point, I'm still betting on user error.

sbk, sorry I doubted ya bud.
that's real cool of Jerry to overnight your ECU and mod it internally. I would have told you how to modify your wiring harness.
Jerry's solution certainly is much more elegant.

Cheers

its okay. i had a feelin it wasnt my fault cause i remember swapping some ECU's with my other car and it ran crappy. i think i might have also damaged something by running it on the MS. it idles high and takes a really long time to get back to 850 even moreso when warmed up. also for a few seconds when i start my car it runs like the same which makes me believe i damaged my injectors or clogged or something

That's great news Stan-- As I mentioned we've got a guy over in the Phillipines with essentially the same setup but it's in a '94 car there where they continued to offer the 1.6 and it appears to be the Cali Car ECU/wiring they used on them-- he'll be excited to know this.
