I have started to data log the SHO. Need a lot of stock info to compare back to when tuned.

I want to do a comparison when I get my ODB Link MX and Torque Pro.  What parameters are you going to compare?  Besides boost of course.

Sorry for the late reply.  :-[

I log the following currently:
Absolute throttle (not happy with results, percentages are not correct and top out at 88% instead of 100%)
Ambient air temp
Air fuel ratio Commanded
Air fuel ratio Measured
Engine coolant temp
Engine rpm
Long term fuel trim bank 1 (I haven't seen a difference between 1 and 2)
Fuel rail pressure
Intake air temp
O2 volts bank 1 sensor
O2 volts bank 2 sensor
Speed (GPS)
Timing ADV
Turbo boost & Vacuum

I am still seeing how the car reacts under throttle. I am starting to think I don't need both O2's. I will also drop the Ambient temp soon because the temp on the stock box is maintaining a 0 to +10 deg range.

I do need to do something with the ELM adaptor I am only getting readings once a second which is not enough info.  >:(

Throttle trick??? Please share. I have changed the equation on the PID with horrible results.

Somebody here knows more about it than I do.  What I can remember is that you turn the ignition on but don't start the engine.  Then you slowly push the pedal all the way down and let up fast.  You do this a couple of times and it is supposed to clear the memory of the throttle.  But don't just take my word for it.  I haven't tried it yet.  Like I said, somebody else will probably chime in about it.

Just another hand wash / quick detail last night. All while my neighbor across the street kept yelling and barking orders to her kids.

"BRING MOMMY THE HOSE" "NO DON'T SPRAY IT LIKE THAT!" "GO WALK THE DOGS!" "YOUR FATHER WILL BE HERE SOON!" "YOU KNOW I CAN'T WALK OVER THERE!" "THE DOG IS RUNNING DOWN THE STREET GET THE DOG!"

Seriously, it made me realize my childhood wasn't that bad after all, and my wife is awesome!

Turned 1K on the tune!  Almost raced a 5.0 on the tollway.  I SHO'ed him a little power.  He got off.  Probably scared him.
