Well, you wouldn't be the first one. The guy on IACGP also thinks my scanner sucks . However, I think it gives real-time data without a problem. It might not capture data well, but when you watch it in real time the numbers are constantly changing and reflecting the gage numbers. I'll see if I can get somebody else over here, but I'm very apprehensive of starting the car and getting it up to temp at this point.

What are you seeing in the numbers that doesn't make sense?

EDIT: If I have to, I'll sell this thing and get an LS1M.

I know do not know if you have a laptop but if i were you I would sell the scanner you have now im not sure what you would get for it and sell the intense PCM. If you get $140 total for both and save the $100 that would go to the AFC you would have 240 to go twards a DHP programer so with a nother 150 you can reprogram it as much as you want scan it and change any of the settings and compair the settings/changes

Sadly, I don't have a laptop. That'* why I bought a stand-alone scanner unit. Otherwise I would be all over it!

Bill, what aren't you liking about my data?

Earth to Bill..... Earth to Bill......... Do you copy?......... I repeat...... Do you copy?


Also, I just picked up a $110 Mini AFC 2.0 on CGP. Should be getting it Monday or Tuesday, and it will go in immediately. I'm pretty sure I'll have a GP guy over here to help me out, but we might call on some of your experience, Mike. I hope I'll have quite a beast on my hands when all is said and done

I just read something that made think about my lean condition.

Would my fuel trims be way off if my O2 sensor is not grounding properly through the threads? What do you guys think? I used copper anti-seize formula during reassembly, as it said it was conductive, but some of it smoked and burned off when we started the car. Any chance there'* something wrong in the O2 department?

If your data is valid, you're running uber-lean on the low end. This indicates that you've added enough low-end flow to cause the stock fuel tables to not be able to keep up on the bottom.

I still doubt you could have caused it to be that bad for. I don't like your data, and I don't think it'* as bad as it appears.

I'm also not concerned with damaged internals. Keep in mind I have similar problems with the Zilla right now (closing in on my final solution, and it'* not explosives). My plugs are beat to death from lean conditions and knock.

I suspect most of the 'new' problems you feel are plug related. You got a TON of work to do still. But you're not alone.

Thanks for the reply, Bill.

Perhaps I'll get the car scanned with a different tool. I now have a connection with a guy who owns the HP Tuners software, so I'll see if I can get him over here, maybe even today. He can't tune my car, but he can give me a scan that is proven reliable. Glad to hear you're not worried that I may have damaged my internals.

Mike, I guess you think my O2 is fine, eh? Lol, .

I'll keep this thread updated. Thanks, everybody!

EDIT: I haven't looked at my plugs yet... so I will today.

Just pull the front three. I plan on the same soon. Might be interesting to compare ours.
