This section will guide you through setting up the software and calibrating the necessary values to enable you to start your engine and achieve a steady idle. By the end of this section, the vehicle will not be ready to be driven, but will be ready to be tuned (which is described in the Tuning Guide).

This setup guide assumes basic knowledge of automotive fuel, ignition and triggering systems.

It is assumed that you are competent with operating your personal computer and are familiar with the basic concepts of the Windows operating system environment. This section will cover only the bare minimum information required to operate the ECU Manager software package for the setup procedure outlined. For more details on the advanced features, make sure that you read the relevant section for the features that you're interested in.
