see on the board where it say BOOT. put a jumper there (any wire in both spots)

then try to upload your X_mod.s19 file that easy therm made with the downloader. make sure the ports are correct.

it's two snips with a cutting tool of some sorts. otherwise the temps will be about 20* low.

oh so i dont need to suck up solder etc hmm i think i will do this after work. So by doing this i will no longer need to reflash easytherm, or i will need to do both. I am just making sure here. I modded the codebased outputs as well. Wow this is gonna be cool if it works. Did I mention you guys are the best

Removing the resistor makes it so MS can read the sensor correctly, otherwise it will read 20* lower than it should. You will still need to reflash the MS with the .s19 file scott sent you and then put the 3 .ini files into Program Files->Megatune->mtCFG.
You have to do all of those steps to get it to work and read correctly in megatune.

then all you gotta do is move the resistor and wire on the back adn you can run spark.

Ok so to recapp. I move my IGN wire to the outside resistor, and then I cut a resistor. And this will make my easytherm and, spark work?

did you move the resistor as well like the above diagram?


that and your codebase changes should get spark to work.

No i have moved nothing yet. This is the guy who does not own a soldering iron remember, i have a propane torch i use on plumbing but i doubt that will do well on the MS baord. I see what you mean for the spark mod but I can seem to find the resistor i am suposed to eliminate for the temp mod. I just tryed to call 2 scoops of hoah he has more mad skilz in this area than i do but i got no response.
