Something else to consider here ... one has to take into account that depending where you are on this earth, this is going to ultimately decide what your settings are. Meaning, the atmosphere and its density need to be taken into account. If your in the mountains your air will be thinner then it would be if you are in a big city like NYC.

Think of the Fi2000 like a snow flake. They may be close, but no 2 need to be the same.

Actually, the Fury fuel injection system has built-in sensors, temperature and pressure, that allow the ECM to automatically calculate the change in air density associated with changes in altitude and/or temperature. So, while your statement, "If your in the mountains your air will be thinner then it would be if you are in a big city like NYC" is fundamentally correct (assuming your "big city" is close to sea level), it really doesn't matter; your ECM will set the mixture at what it "thinks" is appropriate for your "density altitude". Now, since your after-market Fuel Controller, at any of its settings, is simply adding-on fuel to what the ECM fuel-pulse is sending to the injector, and since the ECM is dictating less fuel with increasing altitude (lower density altitude), your Fuel Controller will likewise be adding proportionally less fuel. In other words, if your selected Fuel Controller settings are correctly set for sea level conditions, you won't need to re-set them when you go to altitude, and vice-versa, unlike the old days with jet-and-needle carburetors. Make sense?

Cheers

sure does make sense, but i was misinformed by my stealership that it was just a generic ECM ... that there really werent any sensors.

Your dealer is not very astute or well-informed! Go to your shop manual, look at the schematic on fold-out page #22-3, at the bottom of the left fold-out. There you'll see a box representing the Fuel Injection Module. Inside the box you'll see three sensors; an IAT Sensor, a MAP Sensor, and a TP Sensor. These correspond to your temperature sensor (self-explanatory), your absolute pressure sensor (altitude), and your throttle-position sensor (how far your throttle is open). Now you know.

Cheers
