I don’t want to sound like a stupid noob, but, can anyone take a pic of how you put the adapter harness in the stock computer location? I just can’t get it to sit there comfortably with the factory harness laying like has for 30 years and the map and O2 plug easily accessible.

Ive read that i should not rely on af ratio alone when tunning a chip. Obviously each engine has its own needs. here it seems like targeted af is what your concentrating on. Is this correct? Where do you get your targets from... seat of the pants? Dyno tuning is different, so do that after street tuning?

I give a safe but very accurate target A/F in the startup tune. The customer can modify it to what they're car likes

Cal, very complete kit thank you.

My current 02 bung is longer than the one provided, placing the tip further out of the exhaust stream. Plus it is 24" away from turbo flange.

Any issue with either?

My Flex fuel sensor plugs into the Mass Airflow Sensor factory harness. Will it still read Ethanol Wired this way?.
I am converting from SD2 to Sportsman.
Thanks

installing the xdi software, I'm getting a system error the reds

the program can't start because api-ms-win-crt-runtime-11-1-0.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

I reinstalled the software and still no file. Is this an update file? I can't find it on the FAST site

I had the same problem. There is a file on the flash drive that you need to download 1st that will fix it. I made it way harder than it should have been!
