also consider that Magnuson's calculations expected 8psi from my 2.9 - i got that from the stock 3.3, and i'm currently at 11 with my 2.9

I had same issues your having now. Try the other way. It has worked for me. The other way is a crapshoot.

Well in all my attempts over the past few years I probably spent a good 10 hours and got maybe 9 good data -logged files.

Everyone swears by SCT so I gotta believe it's my hand held.

Shit. Missed this post.

I figured it because that's what Vengeance got with this 3.2 pulley. Actually they got a solid 7 pounds so I figured a pound more belt slippage over time. lol

They got 8.5 with the other pulley.

Yup figuring it that way because the headers and CAI are a wash and the cam takes away a pound or 2 from 13 expected.

It's frustrating as hell. Even after I get far enough to get the PIDs it will still disconnect.

Hope it works out for you. I was in your shoes awhile ago with same problems. No consistency with the SCT. It worked when it wanted to.

You are logging in metric (Maybe you know that already)

The logged perssure is the Manifold Absolute Pressure you have to subtract the Barometric Pressure from MAP value to get boost.

MAP Value = 156 kPa = 22.6 psi;
Baro Value = 100 to 104 = 14.5 to 15.1 kPa;

Boost = (156 - 100) kPa or (22.6-14.5) psi = 56 kPa = 8.1 psi

And one more thing.

Try to use LiveLink GenII, it is more better than LiveLink v6.5

and I prefer to log with VCM Scanner which is more better than SCT milion times. But Ted asking to log with SCT.

Also I have a wideband that I could easily connect it to the VCM Scanner. but connecting it to SCT it is a headache.

Whoa.

Thank you my friend. I appreciate it.

This is kind of what I mean. If I were a company making these devices I'd make it more user friendly. Maybe they do it to keep tuners in a better position to have us need them but, to me, there is no reason they can't have it log in simple terms if we set it to.
