Fuel cut after installing chip

Just installed probenator chip. My ding noise is gone but still cutting out hard. Anywhere between 12 and 15 psi just falls on it's face. No stutter or anything. It's just like the fuel cut.

Any ideas? I get taken on the ECU and chip?

if you see me, take a good look. i wont be around for long!

Yea. So after driving this morning I can definitely hear the beep still from the dash. I contacted the seller (eBay, but also a member on here) and they said they tested it in there car before selling, but are sending me another to try.

Anyone else selling them?

Fuel cut is annoying af.

the best one I know of was probeinator but he requested to have his username changed here a while back. I use to have him on facebook. let me try to find him.

Honestly though you would be better off going with megasquirt. I have two that I would be willing to sell. One is disassembled, the other assembled from a group buy on probetalk probably about 10 years ago. Unknown what it has. I'm going to by a tester to make sure everything is working on it.

Re read. I believe you mean you have two chips available? One in an ECU and one not?

As for Rob, he is probenator? And can help with a new chip also?

Thanks.

Ditto here. Fuel cut from a probinator chip. Seller advised the chip is either backwards or there is a boost leak. Neither showed to be an issue. I turned the boost down to fix it....because idk what else to do. Lol

I got my chip from goodchildren. Purchased from ebay, but was dealing with him over the forum here. Nothing was resolved, didn't feel like asking for my money back either. idk. Car is parked now anyways lol couldn't go more than 2/3 throttle without it cutting on me. Kinda made the car unpredictable to drive. Life I guess

Yea that's who I got mine from.

He is sending me a new zombie and a new Probenator. Maybe it's just his Probenator software. Lame though.

Hopefully I don't have to buy from someone else, but I will. So of anyone wants to sell let me know

Excuse my ignorance.

Difference from assembled and disassembled?

Which year are they for? I have 89.

The assembled version does that mean complete and comes with everything I need?

I've been looking info fmu and fpr, but I know inside Ms is the way to go. Especially since fe3 is in my future.

Thanks.

I'm not trying to get you down but MS is not for the faint of heart and there is a lot of money involved even after you install everything and have it idling on MS. For example: Tuning

You'll have to do a lot of research about it. There is tons out there on this site and more on others.

assembled

https://www.diyautotune.com/shop/megasquirt-assembled/

MS kit

https://www.diyautotune.com/product/...-w-black-case/

There is a lot to know so you'll have to really be into reading and looking up stuff.

Diyautotune has excellent reading material for installing the MS systems. Id do lots of reading before taking a stab at it. It really wasnt that hard to install for me, proper connectors and tools really makes a difference. Went through a lot of head scratches because i saved a few bucks not buying the proper tools for the job. Lesson learned. There is auto tuning software available for MS systems as well. Pretty good stuff to help you after youve already went through and set it up with your info. A professional would be recommended for the tuning side or just take your time and learn the processes. Good street tune and my auto tune function and ive yet to go on a dyno. Granted only at 8 psi for now with my set up. There are easier ways and there are harder ways to go about it. I like having full control over my engine and invested in the ms3x system. Just about the best supporting mod you can buy if you plan on making changes to your cars performance. Not sure how chipping really works as i am from a different generation and didnt get to mod cars in the earlier 2000s and stuff. I know some folks still use them which i think is awesome. I like being able to tell my computer the size and specs of my new injectors in 15 seconds or less. Or what my new coil pack specs out at as i plan on upgrading to a full sequential ign set up instead of wasted spark, which im using currently. Test all injectors from the computer, bang your coils. Set up your water meth on it. Fuel pump on off controls. So many things thatd save time when troubleshooting or adding new components. Plus the added benefits of progressive boost control and fine tuning your launch control set up. All sorts of goodies. Love my Megasquirt 3 X ems, still have most of my inputs and outputs to be used in the future so its good investment for all my plans. Also, my tablet uses the app thats associated with efi analytics to display my gauges and tach via Bluetooth, and theres a Heads up display mode that mirrors the graphics. Velcro straps holding it on my dash. See through reflective tape on a small section of windshield above my dash. Full heads up display of all my stuff. Wonderful
