Well. Nothing's changed here. Tonight I jacked the car back up, recalibrated the WB02 sensor, took the stock out, plugged the WB02 in, unplugged the stock ECU, plugged the Hydra in ... and tried 5.5ms, 6.5ms, 7.5ms, 8.5ms, 9.5ms.
Phil, I want to be a patient customer and wait for your 440cc "starts but runs like crap" map, but I just don't see that I can do anything further here unless you have a rabbit in your hat to pull out. If I heard even the FIRST cough or sputter by now, I would be honing in on the tuning aspect of it, but everything from 5 to 10ms in .5ms increments has been tried now and I am at the end of my pointless cranking song and dance.
I don't even care about starting and idling for 1 second at this point. To not hear a single noise out of all of that is telling to me, but perhaps I am just naive.
Another day down the tubes.
