Apexi Auto timer help

Hey I just installed the Apexi Auto timer and it's working great. I was wondering if anyone else has this turbo timer and they could help me setting up the A/F value and the O2 Sensor Voltage. I did a search and I wasn't able to find any help on setting these 2 features up. Should I just leave it defaulted to what it has? Will that be a acturate reading?? Thanks for anyone that can help out.

I left the default settings as it is when I got it. You shouldn't have to adjust it or anything as long as it displays the correct value. It works fine and accurate as least for me.

Hope this help.

I have that new timer and it actually does a good job of giving a value close to what the proper a/f mix is. I usually dont use the ratio though, I use the O2 sensor voltage values for tuning. I have seen cars on dynos that graph the a/f mix and the apex TT seems pretty damn close. Basically I have mine set to 11. Most cars want a little higher than that but I am having massive fuel delivery issues due to the cold weather here in pa. At a ratio of 11:1 it is still a little rich but whatever. I have it tapped into the kick panel O2 voltage output harness rather than the ecu as the pin connections on the wiring diagram for the apex unit was incorrect. I wouldnt really rely on the ratio that much, I just have it set to that to see a green light light up at WOT (it's a psychological thing I guess) . Basically the unit uses the same technology the LED a/f guages use but it is a little easier to interpret due to numeric values versus little lights. Hope this helps. Lata

It's under the dash, you have to dig around a bit to find it but it will only fit one of the harnesses under there

Does anyone have a vfaq for this?? I really need a lil help. I do not have the greddy harness. I only have the wires coming from the back of the TT. I bought it from ebay and hope this is what it comes with. I am in the process of soldering up mySAFC 2 LE and would like to do this at the same time, but I do not know which wire go where. I know i sound like an idiot. I have wired to the ecu before many times but never the ignition. Please help
