So I thought I would play with my SAFC II that my car came with today. Wrote down all the values that worked before I started playing with things, played around a bit (Im a hands on person), and put the values back to where they were. The car is now jerky at full throttle under 4krpm. My low throttle is 30%, high is 70%. I add fueling to the car heavily under lower rpm gradually tapering off through high rpm. I'm not too sure what is going on, so I thought before I broke something expensive I would consult the forums. I've tried adding and subtracting fuel, and neither seems to help.
The car has an evo3 16g at 20psi with 560cc injectors. If anyone can help or needs more info to help, I can give more information. Just not too sure what else anyone would need.

Thanks in advance for any help.

You could try unhooking the battery to reset the ECU. If the car was running fine before you changed settings and then went back to what worked and it's all funky now its worth a try? Leave it unhooked for about 10 min. or so.

If that doesn't work I'm sure you'll get more advice soon!

I feel like this should be stickied. Pretty helpful as a basic SAFCII guide. Ive been tweaking mine a bit from the 16g/550cc combo, but the car runs great again.
