Thumbs up PCV & autotune install guide for the RC51 (Power Commander V)

I have recently posted a detailed install guide for the Power Commander V (PCV) with autotune in my RC51 winter refresh thread, which can be found here. The physical installation guide is complete with some related software set-up posts.

https://www.rc51forums.com/forums/sh...657#post654657
It's extensively described from pages 19-22 in that thread.



A few other members have done or are doing similar installs and members are welcome to post a link here as well. Plus by all means discuss hints, tips, tricks, and ask questions.


NOTE:
There were issues with the PCV on the RC51. And it's magnified when running autotune.
Power Commander has now released a new PCV that fixes these issues. The PCV now comes with a CPS (crank position sensor) interconnect to accurately measure the ignition. It's easily visible as a second set of interconnects on the PCV wiring harness.

The original issue is discussed in more detail here. https://www.rc51forums.com/forums/18...v-problem.html

Cheers

Note there was new PCV firmware released in July of 2015. It includes the RC51 application.
