Tuning 101 - tuning with the car off
How to set idle stopper, TPS sensor, and throttle linkage. These are
conditions that need to be set properly prior to adjusting your idle, fuel,
timing or before addressing drivability issues. If these items are
out-of-range prior to changing other variables, changing them later will
throw off everything else. It's important to do these things first.
Boost leak testing is covered in
another video. It's critical to get Boost, vacuum, and Exhaust leaks under control before establishing
your baseline tune. Links to the Boost leak testing video are in this video.
