Very frustrating morning. Good news, new pressure sensor is working. I suspect the 12v would have as well. What I found was when its just dangling in the air it oscillates between 0 and infinity. Both did this. When when there's some pressure above atmospheric on it it seems to read fine.

MAP issues were because a pin wasn't seated correctly.

Bad news on the tach. I changed absolutely nothing between leaving the other evening and coming in this morning. I literally walked to the car, plugged in the laptop, connected the MS and started the car.....no RPM.

Now its behavior is this:
-With VR1- to TD and VR1+ to ground I get 1,200 RPM solid with the engine off, and 0 solid with the engine on
-With VR1+ unconnected I get 1,200 RPM solid with the engine off, and wildly oscillating RPM with it running. Changes to the noise filtering settings make no difference.
-Very, very occasionally it will work perfectly.

Car starts and idles on the MS, seems to respond ok to throttle blips, I'm not going to drive it without AFR though.
