Couldn't be user error, could it? Try their forums. You can get answers there.

Did you turn your water injection off? If I were you, I'd get the MS running first at low boost, cruise, idle and then start tuning with the WI.

I am tunning low boost. Nope not user error as i stated before this is my second lc1 unit and i have been through the install instructions several times. This frigin unit acts like **** way before i hit WI. Methanol is not going to kill my WB is it? I wouldn't think so. I will play with this some more but as off now inovative is officialy the devil and i am thinking of going with another type of WB02 and cutting my losses on this.

+1 for Felipe. He helped me get my head out of my *** when trying to configure my LC-1. Very prompt replies and helpful.

+2 for Felipe... he rocks. He's my main contact at Innovate and has always been there for me and my customers.

-1,000,000 for ihavethebestpricesonperformance on ebay. Innovate has been working to shut them down for a while now. I'm not sure of their supply chain and if it's new/refurb/??? but they are not an authorized dealer, in fact they are the inverse of that... they are black spiderman


-- Wish you were close by as I hate seeing posts like this. They're really solid products but I can understand why no matter what I say, from where you're at you can't see that right now. I've simply had so many people feel exactly like you do, then we find the source of the problem and it works flawlessly forever after, that I have total confidence in the LC-1... Heck... I'm still running the 'old and flawed' LC-1 with the weaker DAC that everyone was blowing up left and right. Again mostly from ground issues. I've been running it for like 2 years with no problems. Properly wired I just can't break it.

I'm bummed because I tuned the damn thing on my LC-1 and had a perfect tue according to my logs....it fails a day before the "dyno day"....get to the dyno and I'm at >10:1 throughout the entire RPM

Richard, since you have the sensor...maybe you want to invest $60-70 bucks and buy a assembled JAW WB controller...all you'll have to do it wire up the sensor...or stop being a cheap *** and buy a real LC-1 without sensor for $140....
