What are you going to do about the PIP count from the ZX3 to SVT (fly whl trigger count) being diff

How will you address the VCT

How will you address the IMRC

No you cannot use the ZX3 to run the SVT unless you loose the VCT , wire open the IMRC or a costly windows switch and with all that why even change it ????

That isnt with the tune thos , thats things diff with the ECU it self , you cannot tune in the VCT or the IMRC on a ZX3 ECU

Haha I was wondering how long until somebody stepped in and informed him of a few of the things wrong with his original post.
