Mate, honestly I’d prefer to have a tacho lol. Yes I’m a bit peeved ( as opposed to the other P word ). However, I found a message on the phone with regards to a dyno tuner not too far from me. In a perfect world I’d love to have an Ivan done on my ECU, but the expense and time doesn’t permit this to happen. I have contacted a few ECU reflashers here, but they only do crotch rockets. Even after me tell them that this is the daddy of crotch rockets disguised as a cruiser doesn’t seem to matter. So I will call this guy tomorrow and see what he says about dyno tuning. Watch this space.Terrible news, mate! Maybe either there’s something wrong with your PC3 (I was told by a local dyno guy he wouldn’t touch mine too) or the lack of the tach is causing some memory problems (not likely). Perhaps it is time for an upgrade to an auto-tuner like the Cobra so you can knock two birds with one stone.
Welp, seems like I finally dialed it in! I loaded a Cobra PowrPro Black CVT Tuner and all my woes were solved.Test ride this morning. I loaded Ivan's map last night. It definitely seems to have helped with the back-fires, but I still had a half dozen during some heavy decel. Luckily, my stock pipe muffled them so well no one would know unless you knew what to listen for.
I do notice that she pulls harder now. So much so that now I definitely need to do the 3-plate mod. I have all the materials so I just need the time now. Will probably be another midnight garage night project.
Still want to do some verification work on this map, though, to ensure I'm running a close enough to right air:fuel mix. Might be a while, though...

Might have my PC-III up for sale soon. Wanna get some miles in with my PowrPro first just to confirm.
Thank you all for your assistance and guidance along this path. It took longer than expected and I learned a lot along the way.
