    Hey so today we were tuning the car after I just got the ecu back from ECM. We noticed that the load factor was reading at .15 as upposed to .3 or .4 does anyone know what effects this or what would cause this. No codes Or anything on the dash and everything looks good apart from the load factor being off. Any help is appreciated.

    In the caption you say it reads too high, but that's too low.

    Oh opps LOL, I mispoke. So yes its reading to low. I couldnt find anything online explaining where the ecu gets this data from or what would cause it to read this way.

    Maybe it's not reading incorrectly, maybe there is resistance somewhere along the lines... Or maybe it is just reading incorrectly...

    You may need someone to look at this in person, because there are multiple components that need to be inspected and that's a little hard to go through on this forum. Ask around and see if there is anyone on here that is in your area and possibly willing to come help and have a look. :thumb:

    Ok you mentioned the lines. What does that mean? I have people around me who can help but I dont even know how the ecu calculates load. If I knew that I could look at / replace components.
