Default Who has an autotap?

I need a few people who have an autotap with a laptop and a 00+ model SSEi. Anyone getting random numbers in their logs? I tried autotap support but they were not very helpful saying to try other gm cars. I want to find out if this is a Bonneville thing or if my PCM is messed up. I am thinking its not the PCM because Kendra'* car does the same thing. I have tried 2 dif laptops and both XP Pro and Windows 2K.

Any help here?

That is normal, or at least it appears to be from what I have seen. I am pretty sure what it is is that the Autotap didn't get a readout for that particular reading at that particular time for some reason, so it just displays like a default. I have noticed that those numbers are usually exactly the same as what they are with the key on and the engine not running. So that is my theory on why it does that. I could be completely wrong though. I wouldn't worry about it.

Oh, and your 02 readings are back where I like to see them. What did it take to get those there?

2nd gear

3rd gear is still lean. We are planning on doing headers to remove the boost stacking and see where that gets us.

No pulled timing would be from the 15-17 WOT setting. 4 degree knock would drop it to about 10. negative numbers shouldnt be there.

Like he said, if the KR was what was pulling the timing it would read around 10 degrees like it does in rows 28 & 30. 1 degree of KR is equal to ~1 degree of timing pulled. Usually it is a little more than 1 degree, like maybe 1.5-2 degrees, but in general you can guess it is approx. 1 degree.
