mellephants Hey, no problems, if I came off "mad" or "mean" I apologize. I was sorta trying to be funny.

I was just trying to help you out with what I knew. Didnt like it, you could have responded in a more adult manner. That being said "Have a nice day"

Thats what I found out, too... I set it to 5250 and noticed big dip in AFR and Load when it opened. I also tried 4800 and noticed similar results. My car really seems to like 5100-5150.

Figuring out what works best on the Focus is how he makes a living; we just do it for fun.

ffwturbo From talking to Tom, stock setting for the DSIM (IMRC) to open is 5200 RPM, he sets them @ 4950 RPM thru tunning. I guess that the sweet spot. No dyno's to prove it tho, sorry.

IMRC Opening RPM

Anybody have a dyno of the same car with different IMRC Opening RPMs? I think I'll try 5000 at first, then maybe lower it a bit more. Thoughts?
