Does your ADX file have an existing channel for a wide band or are you trying to modify an unused input to accept the wide band voltage? I am using an old ScannerPro program, but here is a link to how I modified an unused channel in my ADX to accept a wide band voltage: www.carols62.com/ramjet/wideb...

Need a lot more information.
Is this on a RamJet 350 engine?

You say it stalls at 1500 RPM. Does it run correctly below 1500? Above 1500?

Did you check the injector pulse with a Noid Light?

Does it idle at all? Can you rev it up to 3000 RPM?

What are the “weird numbersâ€￾? Do you have the correct XDF file loaded in TunerPro?

Normally the BIN file in the ECU is password protected. How were you able to download the BIN file from the MEFI4b ECU? Do you have the MEFI Burn program to download and upload?
