Cheuk,

"Where the heck do I get the OBDII tool?"

Check out the link below for details on the two OBDII scanners I own.

"I didn't realize that the long term trim was capable of effecting the WOT maps to that large of a degree. How much can it trim? + or - 10%?"

On a Bosch DME it can go +/- 8% without triggering a check engine light. I've heard (unconfirmed) that on the Siemens it will go quite a bit higher before you trigger a check engine light.

"I wonder why the guys at AA said that the larger injectors would not be affected significantly
at WOT? I specifically asked about this."

Beats me. I've got the manuals that explains how this happens and have talked to Jim C. about it as well.

"We have a Haltech expert here from Australia in town to tune some cars.... I wonder if I
should just go to a stand alone system."

You could but if you are just looking to get a little more fuel at WOT then you really don't need to.

Shawn
