First, read the manual and spend some time on the DS forums, reading the FAQ there.

Then, do the online update for the CROM first.

After that, load the tune of your choice, make any other selections you need to do (tire size, etc...), then fuel appropriately.

After that, go play.

Ah, I guess you didn't but the cable and power cable when you got the unit. Costs a bit more than buying it elsewhere, but it's worth it for the extra hassle IMHO. But there's been some good info, Michael dropped the practicals and Mike the application. A tank or 2 at your planned octane level will make sure you don't run into any pinging issues.

Got the serial to USB at Radioshack and the DC power at best buy, i've always run 93 in the truck so I installed the 93 tune and recal'd for my bigger tires, and damn! I'm so happy I bought this thing!
