Now look who has wadded panties.

Whether you use bandaids or the Megasquirt you will also need a wideband O2 sensor/controller like the Innovate LC-1 (can be purchased online from multiple sources).

after watching Ryan attempt to hook up and set up his LC1 I'd never go through that pain honestly.

MTX-L or AEM for the win

Should have gotten the MTX-L, the AEM is painful to tune with.

The GM AIT (intake temp sensor) is an option on some kits, you want that so you can get rid of your maf. The AIT has 2 wires, you stick them in the plug where you maf is connected, there should be instructions when you get it.

Beyond that you unplug the stock ECU, plug in the PNP. Run the vacuum line from the intake manifold to the PNP. Connect your wideband output (white on AEM?) to the wideband input on the megasquirt.

You'll "create a new project" in Tunerstudio, set up your car, detect the ECU, select your wideband. Set timing to 10 degrees, adjust timing on the motor to match 10 degrees. Reset timing back to use the table and drive the car.

waiting like 10-15 seconds for this stupid thing to heat up is what's really painful

makes tuning startup and cold idle so much fun

I used to have this problem. Then i made a toggle switch that changes from on/off using the acc to on all the time or off all the time.

Yeah I'm not making a whole switch for this stupid thing, but I guess I'll wire it to constant current when tuning startup

Excuse my unknowlwdgeable skills but isnt that good? I know you wanna run a little bit rich with more boost but what is wrong with 8psi at 13afr? Or is that unattainable with a voodoo box

I'd hate to sound like an ******* but are you really planning on turboing your car with how little you know or are you planning on replacing your motor anyhow?

13afr is very lean for boost and the voodoo box aint gonna help you because the injectors max out at 6 psi.

The AEM is dirt slow, Im not sure if its just the display or the output too, but Ive tried live tuning with the gauge display and it sucks.
MTX-L is way faster and just as cheap and easy to use at the AEM. I used to recommend the AEM to people who were not doing any tuning and who just need something to monitor AFRs with, but now there is no reason for anybody to ever buy an AEM again.

dunno what you're talking about, I never had problems tuning with it on the various different cars over the years. would I like it to be a little faster responding, yes, but is it a deal breaker? no
