    I am new to ecmlink and I have been reading the wiki page and I still could use some help.
    I just moved my AEM WB to the upstream spot and added a 272 exhaust cam.
    I am getting fuel, and I am testing for spark soon. I am using a 1G blacktop cas.
    I have verified no boost leaks. mechanical timing is 100% on
    I bought this link used and it was set up for SD, so I went through and changed it back to MAF (stock)
    I am using evo 560 injectors, which I set in the fuel section.

    Please help!

    Can you post a log? You’re still on MAF?

    I’ll check your setting on the laptop. It was running fine before link, correct?

    Stock 1g MAF? If you're using 2g, change it under MAF Comp, Base MAF type.

    Go to Fuel Tab and zero it out.
    Zero out the MAF Comp slider.
    Go to NBO2 sim and select narrowband sim
    Under ECU inputs, unselect lock MDP
    For Evo III 560 injectors, set global to -18 and deadtime to zero

    Sorry. Just realized you have a 2g. Leave MAF type as stock

    So here is a funny thing I went through that I just could not find the answers for and figure out (for a long time).

    I also verified air, fuel and spark. Still no starting.

    Well, one day I decided to change my global settings (330 deadtime and -61 to -45).

    It started right up. I have 1050cc FIC injectors during this time. Of course fuel pressure was at 43.5psi at the rail.

    Same thing with my brothers 1990 TSI. He has the HiZ 1150 injectors. Pretty much the same thing.

    I am guessing in my case it is a wiring issue or something I maybe overlooked.

    But for the most part, it’s usually something simple.

    Under configure connection, is the device type correct?

    I had to invert my wires, and I had bad spark plugs.
    Swapped them out and she started right up.
    No I have a little bit of tuning to do to get it running smoothly.

    Good to hear! I did notice a couple of things.

    TPS is off
    Throttle position is off
    Check Idle switch
    Log and/or adjust ISC position

    You have simulate idle switch from tps so you should be good once you get the cable or tps adjusted properly.
    You still had -.8% @2000 in fuel slider
