Default ms missing, rpm drop at cruise

this problem just stared getting worse, logs show no rpm spike, just a drop to zero then recovery... happens once in this log where lost sync shows it, for some reason i cant load the better logs with more instances.

possibilities: ground? plugs? wires? cas?

Does it happen frequently, or like once every 15 minutes? I get an occasional reset when driving with tunerstudio running VEA live. When it burns the table changes to the controller it resets. It was a little unnerving until I figured that out. It never happens when I'm not autotuning.

hmmm it did happen like twice in 20 minutes, 4 times in 45 minutes, which promted me to post this. This was while TS was connected, but not all of them were while using autotune.

It has happened probably two-three times before (w/o TS connected), over two tanks of gas

How old are your plugs and wires? I had the same problem but much more often, changed the plugs and wires and the misses disappeared. If you are misfiring it would show up like this.

That was my first thought, but I don't know **** and MS freaks me out so I figured I'd ask, I havn't changed them since i got the car (1yr), they look fresh as daisies though... time to throw some more dough

Is it actually reseting or is it just losing sync? Check your Clock and Sync Loss gauges.
