Was surprised to see the Atl.United take a championship in their first season as a team. So what happened, because this year they suck.

I don't follow MLS as much, but Atl have a pretty strong team from what I've heard. Atlanta has always been a strong soccer city. I learned to play up in Ga at summer camp. My councilor was the University of GA goalkeeper.
Kids up there even have indoor soccer!

so the fuel injection has been in open loop safe mode since I got the truck. No cat, no O2 sensor. No smog, egr, or any of that stuff.
Looks like the block was replaced with a reman/crate and I can't find any engine #'s.
Looking to add an O2, swap the throttle body for a rebuilt one, and get the computer reflashed. I'm going to have them program it for a 180* thermostat, too.

Wow. That is interesting. Does it give an engine light warning? Do you need the emission stuff for florida inspection? How much worse is the mpg in open loop?

mpg's are around 12-ish. Still better than our old van.
No inspections here, or in SC where the truck came from.
There would be a warning light but the bulb was removed lol.
Some redneck guys actually just run these in open loop. But I'm going to get it back to 100% or better.

It will need an O2 sensor!

you dont need to use a new chip to run closed loop .. they go into closed loop at 160f so a 180 T stat will be fine. , O2 sensor and you may need a resistor to fool the EGR's 3rd pin if it has a 3 pin connector.



these ECMs i didnt think were flashable.. for these i always burned E-prom's with new timing and fuel tables.. I used to download the hex files and edit them.. wow i wonder if i still have all the stuff i used to hack these... I know I still have my Burner and I think the VB6 program I wrote.. "yep back in the 90s I was building laptops into digital Dashes for hotrods... talking at a Whopping 160 Baud to the ALDL port of the ECM..."

Yeah that's how they do it.

You can buy bolt on TBI kits that replace the carb that come with the O2 sensor
