I hear there is a way to keep the engine from dying after you save your changes ot a UTEC map. How is it done?

Give it a little throttle but don't go over 1500rpms I am not kidding.

Maybe there's a more sophisticated way and that's probably what you're looking for LOL! If there is a way I'd like to know too. On my car, I can save maps and it doesn't stall. Of course that might have something to do with the blow through MAF

As soon as I hit save I give the throttle a little blip. Works well.

I figured out the same. Rev it up slightly before you hit save.

Have you got the basic scaling functions (the 0% area) tuned pretty well? Mine wanted to stall before I tuned it the other day. I also have a cable TB vs your DBW TB. That might make a diff to as I've got mine bumped up slightly with the adjustment screw (I'm guessing the DBW doesn't have that?).

Yea, I often scan, and will make minute changes, while sitting on the shoulder of the road, and the car never stalls when saving. It does bog a lil, and the rpms jump a lil.

I think that on the sti's its the electronic throttle that doesnt react fast enuf, and thats why it dies.

Mine died once, the diference was that I have some 41's on the timming map. It always stalls when I save a map.

Yep, the goose of the go pedal is the ticket.
