    So as of now I was on the final stretch and I made a big oops... i welded in the dash area and now my car is not recognizing the tuner ...I checked all my fuses and visually inspected what I could all seems ok.. all other electronics are working properly. According to sct the obd port is on the same circuit as the cigarette lighter which the fuse is good.. also because at first it wasent warming up as usual I figured it was the computer so I bought another to eliminate that and that was not the issue.. My next plan of action after no luck with my volt meter will be to swap dash or take out dash completely and use a racepak digital dash and a stand alone engine management system then later on figure out how to make door locks lights a,c ect work seperately

    Turns out it was sct's device that was malfunctioning then I ended up frying my computer later doing something else troubleshooting.. so now I have the new computer ..towing it to the dealership to flash in the vin and have the pats all line up should be good to fire up and start dealing with 6shooter on remote tuning again ..also before the crap hit the fan when I was tuning with 6shooter the first time it idled fine like you can see in the video but revving it past 3k it would not and it sounded like a spark issue ..upon doing some research online the screamin demon coil pack that I bought from this tbone guy on this site. They are known to go bad so I guess it went bad on him and he decided to pass it on to the next victim which just so happened to be me.. well that trend stops with me because I threw it in the garbage.. while I was figuring out the sct issue out I put on another coil pack I had and voala 5k with ease.. so can't wait to see if I'm back in business tomorrow..fingers crossed!

    Ehhh... :( the "mustang specialist" at my local stealership whom I have dealt with before, was not successful at completing the task that i had him do for me 6 months back.. there is something wrong that I have yet to find out and honestly.. I'm tired of trying :eyetwitch: ..so now I will purchase the AEM standalone engine management system and wire it in parallel with what is exsisting so I have full control of my engine but still utilizing my factory gauge cluster locks windows ect..

    I am not too upset about this turn of events because honestly it had to happen eventually there are no dyno tuners that will use SCTs software only AEM and as good as a remote tuner 6shooter is and has proven that many times over.. and as much as I wanted to have it running for a while all motor on 6shooters remote tunes through the sct software. I know that there are many very talented tuners here in Miami that are more than capable of creating me a safe tune with this engine/turbo combo

    Now I just need to cough up like 1200 for the AEM computer :doh:and go through the process of wiring it up properly :paranoid: and I think I need to get yet another wideband because the AEM gauge is apparently very sensitive..
