    Steve,

    I am going to give your portion of this thread a life of its own because, while about a car with an MS3Pro, it is an excellent thread on the implementation of it in your car and it deserves...

    I suspect you have your MS3 still calibrated for gasoline. Your "rich" 10.1 AFR that you are running at would melt an E-85 fueled engine to the ground I first gear if the ECU was set up for E-85. ...

    I believe you are reading the tea leaves correctly, Kevin.

    This appears to be a faulty wiring harness between #5 and the ECU or a faulty ECU. I would bet on the wiring.
