Calibrations
UEGO Zero
UEGO zero calibration indicates the stoichiometric point of the internal wideband controller. Adjust this value with the wideband O2 sensor unplugged from the wideband cable. If the AFR display indicates more than 14.7 AFR, reduce the UEGO zero calibration value. If the AFR display indicates less than 14.7 AFR, increase the UEGO zero calibration value.

UEGO Gradient
UEGO gradient calibration indicates the free air point of the internal wideband controller. Adjust the UEGO zero calibration value before adjusting this value. Pull the wideband O2 sensor from the tailpipe and plug it into the wideband cable. Turn the ignition power on and allow several minutes for the sensor to heat up and reach operating temperature. If the AFR display indicates more than 21.5 AFR, reduce the UEGO gradient calibration value. If the AFR display indicates less than 21.5 AFR, increase the UEGO gradient calibration value. Use the smallest value that will display a constant 21.5 AFR.

Enter a password and re-enter a password to confirm. If both passwords match, the OK button will activate. Click it and a master password will be set.
Maps are individually marked to be locked or unlocked. To mark a map to be locked right-click on the Map Data window and select Mark Private, or select Tools→Private Maps→Mark Private. The current map that is visible is now marked as private. To mark more maps, you must select the map from the Tuning Maps menu and repeat the process.

Note: A master password must be set before Mark Private becomes visible.

The lock function locks all maps that have been marked as private. To lock the map, go to Tools→Private Maps→Lock. When this is completed, all maps previously marked as private are now locked and cannot be viewed or edited:

To disable the Private Maps feature, select Tools→Private Maps→Disable. This will prompt you for your master password. After the master password is entered correctly the feature is disabled.
