Procharger install update

Whats up people....I just finished installing my procharger kit and I must say it was a very simple yet challenging install. I took my time and worked real slow....It took me about 2.5 days to complete. I had a few problems installing the belt and the charge piping took a while to get right. I had to bend alot of power steering piping, but other then that, everything was pretty straight forward. Actually with my experience....it all seemed a bit too easy...i thought for sure it wouldnt start or it would catch fire or something. So Tom sent me a start up tune..I loaded it up, closed my eyes, and turned the key....It fired right up and idled strong. I almost forgot to start datalogging, i was surprised it was running so smooth. So heres some pics to show the final install....I'll keep guys updated with the tuning and evebtually a dyno run....

Awesome, looks nice man. Also, good on ya for installing a FMIC instead of the BMIC that it normally comes with. 13# is gonna put you in your seat.

your going to love!just got my kit on and tom is still tweaking the tune for me. but just from the wot runs i love it. looks like you have a bov, i thought bypass was the way to go. although i guess alot of guys vent to atmosphere with the bypass anyways so it probably doesnt matter.

I keep getting this message right before i start datalogging...."datalogging on SCP 32 bit device may be sporadic"....what is that supposed to mean?

When i click "start datalogging" it does just fine for about 30 seconds then the elapsed time and all the signals start to hesitate...then the xcal3 loses connection...WTF?
