Are the WSS the only source of input for torque management? I have no idea, just asking.

Very true Ben, typically the items you concentrate are at WOT, because that'* where you want the power to be.

In my case it was a bin file only w/o the car on hand. It'* what I called a "fat tune" meaning that it will push a little more fueling than one would "tune" their car for. Things like that. It'* my starting point.

WSS disable can be a beautiful thing. However the slight KR still shows at the low rpm. It'* CASE learn and see what happens. Hopefully that'* all I need and things are good. If not, I'll keep plugging away until I find and eradicate it from the car.

Cool, man.... I sure hope you can find the issue, whatever it is. I'm really excited to see what that car can do when it'* in top tuned form!

Ok..still present after CASE. Running rough like a plug or wire. Think it'* cylinder #4...waiting for cool down to change the plug.

The light throttle KR battle continues.

The plugs and wires were a goose chase and all I ended up with...was smelly stuff.

Still have a leak at the SC. $^$$##$^&*()%$#$# used a different sealant on the threads of the plug. More research into this to come.

Thinking I might have a SC to LIM leak, gasket is on it'* way. Curbing any possible nose drive issues with bearings also on the way.

Probably crawling back around the motor tonight looking for anything that may be loose. The inconsistency and lack of problems in a scan from last night have me pulling at straws.

You mention the scan looks clean, what parameters are you scanning?
Could there be a blip in your maf table thats cutting fuel at a certain engine load thats causing the kr?
Can you post your scan so we can have a look and see if anything looks out of place?

Will post tonight. Meant to bring a copy and ran late this morn. I didn't see any blips in maf. Would love more eyes to look it over though. Somehow the inconsistency and lack of the other two motors doing this..makes me thing it'* something loose or a vac leak.

I would love more eyes and assistance on this one. Thanks
