Not going to argue with you Bill. No they are not "needed" the way you have them set because 0 and 0 is a specific injector size according to the scale but they do adjust the mixture for ANY injector set up because it changes pulse of all injectors on the circuit whether one or four it's all the same. Try it you will see and it's a finer adjustment than the other three dials. You can also change the mid and wot dials on the fly. No need to stop and shut the engine off. That's just for the Mode switches. It still amazes me that people don't read the instructions completely after all the posts in this forum.
My car runs great the way I adjusted my MAF-Translator. I have tried adjusting the Aux. and Base settings. And I have read through the entire installation instructions on the MAF-Translator. My car works best the way I have it set up now.You do it your way, and I'll do it mine.Let's take a look at your advice:
AUX: This 16 position (0-F) dial is used to adjust the airflow signal during heavy acceleration conditions WHEN THE PURPLE TRIGGER WIRE IS ACTIVATED (The AUX.dial is also used for selecting base settings.
O.K. Members, how many of you that have a MAF-Translator have the Purple Trigger wire installed?
Base: This 16 position(0-F)dial is used to set the general airflow scaling. This adjustment affects the ENTIRE operating range and is generally used to match the Translator and MAF to the selected injector size.GET IT !!! "Selected injector size" Not two different injector cc sizes.
O.K. Members, If you read the base setting on the last page of the MAF-Translator Manual it deals with a SET INJECTOR SIZE!!! Like of the same cc size.i.e.4-580ccs,4-600ccs or 4-1000ccs. Ours are not the same size unless it's a 4 injector MPI set up.This information is referring to a 1st gen FOUR injector set up,not a two injector throttle body Starquest set up with a different Primary and Secondary injector cc size.
Also, on a 2.02 how in the hell are you going to change the Midrange and Wide Open Throttle settings without pulling over and adjusting them??? Maybe you have a midget under your hood with a WALKIE-TALKIE and a flashlight to adjust the dials for you as your reading your Wideband Gauge AFRs to him
Before you question my advice, do your homework.I have read many a post from experienced Starquest owners who run the MAF-T and they concur with me. "Leave the Base and Aux. dials set to ZERO".
I don't give bad advice, just sound advice,
