My v8 Swap.

Is just about done, i have a thread up in the project section.

but i was wondering, i have the sct flash tuner.

and what should my idle be at?

and what are some other good things to change with the tuner, shift pressure stuff? idk about that.

and i have a tune for 89 and 92 octane.

i have it on 89 with 1/4 tank

how should i switch over to 92 then? run it lower and put 1/2 tank of 92 in and run that low and fill it up with 92 and change the tune?

you should be fine if atleast 3/4 of the tank is whatever your tune is. idle should be anywhere between 600-850, I cant remember where mine is at but I know its between 700 an just under 1k. shift point would just be trial and error to get it how you like. for high end speed or more acceleration. pressure will make it shift quicker/firmer but I would leave that to a shift kit if you want those kind of results.
