well scott you got any 351 stuff?

If its getting the car up and going so its fully drive-able I can always remote in and finish the tune for you man.. This way the car is easier to sell if thats what you wanna do.

Well...back to our regular scheduled programming.

I'm going to keep my depressing personal stuff out of here. My posts make me look like a depressed sick crazy old dude. I still run circles around all of my kids. Lol

Installed the factory cigarette lighter / charger port and the usb w/ aux jack. When I get the knock sensor installed it'll be a listening jack. ( won't need it but it's cool....doubt I'll be able to hear knock over the turbo, cam, and rockers )

I laid some masking tape down so I wouldnt mark up the console. Also gave me a center line to judge off of.

Used the mirror switch to square it up. The ports aren't the same size so I wanted to get them as close as possible to square and even. Once installed I even hooked up the bulb that goes on the factory port. It actually lights up now. May change it to one that lights up green like everything else inside this car. Reminds me of all the money I continue to spend.

I traced the inside of the holding nut for the usb thingamabob and used the flat metal plate that goes under the factory port. Used a dremel with a cutting drill bit to cut them out....then used a sanding barrel to creap up on the right size.

Its wild looking at all this stuff that's going to come back out again. The cords reached to the back of my radio and to the adapter for my MS. The adapter for my phone should be here tomorrow so I can finally test this app out.

This morning was absolutely beautiful at my house. Had to snap a pic...

Well....the MSDroid app works. I missed a pretty nice data log but did get two others.

Today the tires let loose in third. Very nice feeling.

Some things need to be worked out with the MSDroid log. According to it my car idles at -2.3 psi. My gauge was showing me about 12in vacuum which is normal for my car at 8- 900rpm.

You guys finally get to see my test drive route. This MSdroid app is fun. Nice to play around a lil'bit.

The gps map feature is more precise than I thought it would be. I can see this being useful in the future.

My limited data log area is the reason my cars tune isn't completely done yet. Not enough straight space and always on and off the throttle.

Tags will be coming soon. I feel a little more confident now that I know I can back track to where i was when certain things happen in a log.

You mean you can click on a part of the map and it shows where in the log that was? Or is that too futuristic. Because that would be bad ass. Like, man when I hit it coming over that bridge, it bogged like ass for a minute. Click, boom, yada. yada, bog fixed!

Exactly... The map is synced to the log. You can definetly see the exact area where the car glitched.

I've been enjoying this phone app for tuning. Played around with my VE table a little figuring out things. Didn't make any tune changes but it seems so much easier to deal with.

I just have one problem....I'm outta gas. Lol

This weekend I plan to play some more with the laptop this time. Might get a video done.

Got gas.... spent 20mins trying to figure out why my WB didn't match what I saw in TS. Come to find out....I was looking at my battery voltage gauge on the laptop and not my air fuel ratio gauge.:nonono:
