I found my old GM 3bar MAP sensor from my supercharged mustang and I would like to put it on the foxbody with the Pro-M. I am assuming that I need to turn this MAP sensor on in the calibration tables.

Is Calibration: Sensors: MAP: Configuration: Map_HP the correct place to turn this on?

I have a very old strategy but to answer your question, YES your are correct. Pullup the MAP gauge from Variables and make sure vacuum numbers are correct on the gauge when the car is running. Or you can hookup a vacuum/boost pump to the MAP sensor's vacuum line to make sure it's reading correctly with either vacuum or boost (do this with the vehicle NOT running KOEO).

I hope this helps

Thanks.
This worked. I turned it on in the the, wrote the tune to the Pro-M, keyed on the car and saw 29.999 inHg.
Started the car up and saw 17inHg on the MAP which confirms the 12inHg on the mechanical vacuum gauge.

This also explains why my brake pedal is rock hard. hahahaha
Guess I will add a reservoir to see if that helps the brake situation before going hydroboost.

I added one too just because I think it's a nice variable to be able to log. I agree with Chris that the number is irrelevant to power but I wanted to monitor it before and after meth and for the cost of the sensor it was a no brainer.

Can I change that my map sensor will read in psi not in inHg? or do I have to convert it to see how much boost I make in psi. My car should be around 26 psi at WOT so by looking at the map gauge should I see around 53.864 inHg ?

Under sensors, Map, drag boost to the scope window. It will measure in psi.

I was thinking to at knock sensor is it possible with Pro M system ?
I am not aware of any knock sensor functionality unless your car originally came with them (newer models), then it may be a feature. As far as with the foxbody platform, I have seen a lot of issues with false detection of knock and other issues.
It would be a nice feature to have, if it was dependable.

Check out J&S Safeguard for knock detection. One of these days I'm going to integrate their Interceptor or Vampire into my system.

I have a 97 mustang Gt With cobra engine block and there is place to install knock sensor I just wish it would be possible to connect this to pro m System
