Default safc 2 install and initial impressions

Let me preface this by saying that I know that this is not an ideal setup. Of course a utec would be much, much better, but I got a good deal on an safc 2 and decided to try it out. Anyway, the install is simple enough, and it does look cool (if the bling factor is important). I don't have a wideband yet so I have only leaned everything out by 1 or 2% on the low end. My egt's haven't gone over 760, so I feel ok about it. It pulls a good bit harder than before(I was using a txs stage 2 unichimp), and drives a LOT smoother(no more part throttle hesitation). I wish there was a 4 wheel dyno in Louisiana so that I could get some measurable results. Anyway, when I get a wideband, I will get a little more aggressive with it (vf22and injectors waiting to be installed). I have been driving around for about 6 days and haven't had any trouble with the ecu learning around it yet.

txs up, helix dp, nurspec catback, blitz sbc-id, safc, hacked intake.

Yeah. It just taps into the stock knock sensor. It just gives a number value based on the voltage from the knock sensor. It doesn't offer any sort of correction.
