Help. installin flex fuel wires.

had a question about the install. in step 8 "8) Remove the DB25/AMP shell and insert the FlexFuel DSUB pin in to position 21. Check the
numbering twice before inserting as once inserted a DSUB can not be removed without a special
DSUB removal tool" did u mean position 2 or 1. and which connector is the amp? bigger or smaller of the two. thanks stuck on the install please reply as soon as you can. thanks

I just got my wires as well. The bigger one is the AMP one, it's printed on it. If you read closely with enough light you'll read it. I have not started my install by the way.

I figured it out last night . Filled a 60/40 mix- switched to map5 - changed the open loop settings to
60 and after a few wot's the car became a beast. I was peaking at 18psi and consistent at 16-17 . Between shifts are smooth as butter w/ no lag and consistent power . Loving this new mod. If it makes my neck snap back in every gear im happy. Best 25 dollars I've ever spent. Thanks terry for looking out w/ the quick responses

Wow, great to hear. I love mine as well. Def seems like a brief delay now with my wires and 7/1 update. Power comes on stronger, however. Quick question what is your auto learn level at? Mine has been at 4 and 5.

I really like my Procede but this might be the tipping point for me. E85 is everywhere in my neck of the woods and with one year gone on my two year lease, there is only so much time I can burn waiting for Vishnu to give some N55 love...

You could def use e85 with procede. I did look at my results with no meth/intercooler. The procede already comes with the fueling wires .

I've never seen my car ever go past 17.5 only on a spike. I don't think our turbos flow enough haha..

You would def need the fuel wire to feel a difference.

I am running 50/50 E85 on Map 5 with no fuel wire and it runs like a beast. Not sure what your talking about? I have been running it for 7 months now with no problems.
