    Was running a different/downloaded bin through the Osrich. I removed the adapter, ribbon cable and ostrich from the truck and installed the chip that I bought from Harris into the pcm. No more 23,000 spark advance, it idles smooth and doesn’t stall, and has power again. But I’m back to running very rich.

    I'm glad to have found the problem and would like to burn a chip. I have spent a lot of money because of the problem with the Ostrich and it looks like I'll be spending some more. What do I get from Moates to make it happen?

    That is not a ostrich problem it's a tuner pro bug and other software like 1320's android program that are based on the same files in software only at least in $0D. It can happen anytime the total timing goes to retard = lower than the initial advance. A quick comparison between the two bins you mention shows exactly why the 23,000 is not showing up with the Harris bin. It's got much higher total advance. You can duplicate the 23,000 bug almost constantly in tuner pro by mostly setting a very high initial advance and then having all the cells on the timing table set to less than that. I spent a lot of time to try to figure out that deal. It's a tuner pro glitch nothing more. I did not see you mention you never burned a chip before. I use the ostrich for one day and did find it buggy. One time it suddenly corrupted the bin file on the dyno so bad it would not run. I thought I had popped the computer, but once the ostrich was removed and the same file flashed to the real chip, it was fine again. It's good for trying different stuff in a hurry but its not the final word.

    Update, when I load a bin with the WBo2 functional the glitch 23,000 happens and there is no power. When I load a bin without the WBO2 in it, it doesn't happen and the power is there, that's why the harris memcal installed directly into the ecm worked without the glitch, the WBO2 is not enabled in it. After burning a couple chips and then reinstalling the Ostrich2 I was able to figure it out. The Ostrich works great but like you said(donf) its not the final word. Its nice to have a chip burner.

    121 bin is with wideband121.xdl jjjjjj bin is without wideband jjjjjj.xdl. Why do you think using a bin with wideband is taking timing out?

    I did not look at the files but I remember before you had trouble with a fan or something because you had it hooked in into the computer control harness. If the wide band is not hooked directly to a keyed power terminal on the fuze or junction box and grounded properly it needs to be. Hooking in into the egr power or something else engine control related will cause you to chase yourself in circles.
