Shiv and All, I know the UTEC is sold by a competitor, but will Shiv's "trick" work if a TurboXS UTEC is installed? Anyone?
dug-e-fresh mentioned the UTEC in his reply above where he mentioned MAP versus MAF, but, as a newbie to my UTEC and tuning, i don't understand the implications of what he said for UTEC owners who are considering doing Shiv's trick. It seems harmless to give it a try, though.

Just a little trick that has been shown to accelerate the factory ECU's ignition timing learning process.
Background: There is something called "Ignition Advance Multiplier". It represents, by some complicated algorithm, the average learned positive knock correction applied to the ignition maps. It's represented in 1/8th degrees increments. 1 being the lowest and 16 being the highest (1/8 to 2 degrees in absolute terms).
