Thanks Dave. I drove it home from work using Map1, and it would only hold 10psi max. So you're right... it's still a problem. Logs look the same as before, no point in posting them :-(

Going back to stock - proper menu settings for logging

Just want to confirm what speedo/tach settings I should select for “bone stock” data logging. MHD backend flashed to stock.

Select JB4 menu 0/4. And also select menu 4/4?
