Vinny,

PLEASE don't take this wrong but the RT was never intended for the layman.


Mark
I know but I'm a hands on guys.I worded it wrong.I've tuned Holley carbs for years but FI is new to me.
With the help from eveyone here I'll get real good.Then I'll get my own dyno and open shop. ;) that's a few years down the road tho.Just some wishful thinking. ;)
Do I need to take take it somewhere to load the software?Or can I hook it up to my PC?

If you have a network you can either copy entire CD from the PC into a directory on the laptop or use windows sharing to share the PC's CD drive and access the installation by using "My Network Places" from the start menu. Just browse over the the shared CD drive (or the copy) and double click on "Launch.exe"
My PC has win.XP.Can I just hook up the 9pin cables and copy the software to the laptop which has ME?

No problem. A good friend of mine is a pretty hot shit race engine builder (NASCAR, AMLS, Grand-Am, SCCA, APBA, UIM, etc.) but I've had to tutor him on computers for the last 3 years just so he can run his accounting software. I hope you find someone to help out. Too bad you're not here in Central Florida, I'd fix you right up :)
I'm just a hobbiest to cars.Not profesional.I just like to be faster than my buddies.But this V-rod :ride: is taking time away from the cars.but that is a good thing,cuz I was starting to burn out.
thanks for the help and future help.

Got the software installed today.Took it to a local shop.They had to take the hard drive out,because they couldn't use an external drive because ME doesn't have drivers.$50.

Calling for cold and rain this weekend and next week it'll give me more time to reread the manual a couple more times.
