the numbers in that sheet are the calibration slope that you need to program into your pms. You will also need the 4-6 connector.

and yes, you CAN use a lightning meter on your car. OnyxCobra is running one right now

you dont need to use a calibrated maf for injector size. I can take a stock maf and make it run 42# injectors..

all you have to do is alter the maf transfer function in the ECM so that it reads the maf appropriatey

You better be able to. If not, the PMS IS truly the piece of **** I have always thought it to be
