Your STFT wont stay 1 .00 that is only a target

First start at a idle get it trimming there first then go to 1500 hold the RPM as steady as you can and adj there then go to 2500 , 3500 and do the same all this why sitting still then with some one driving cruise at 2000 , 3000 , 4000 and wright down the trims needed to make the corrections then go back make the changes and that should get you very close on your STFT

Your AF shouldnt be more than 12.5 and try to target 11.8 anything above 12.8 let off and go add more fuel

on your timing watch the knock sensor for deto in your scan tool anything more than 1.5 deg let off and go take out -2 deg of timing and try again

Im at Myrtle Beach for bike week but i will check in over the next few days to see if you have more questions

Use your base spark table under the "spark" heading.

Watch the spark... if you are getting deto you should see the ECU pulling spark, I know we did when we were tuning mine.

I would start out with a small amount of spark and log it, and keep adding spark a couple of degrees at a time until it starts to show deto then pull enough timing to make it stop.
