    I'd contact HP support. I think their software (/ the MPVI2) probably identifies ECUs by part number or something similar, and although it's pretty much the same transmission as in the A4, the Q5...

    What interface do you have, and what version of VCM suite are you using? I think you need an MPVI2 interface, AFAIK the older one will not work. And you need the beta version of VCM suite.

    Nope, the narrowband and wideband signals are very different. On wideband controllers with a "narrowband output", that output is separate from the main output for that reason.

    Your engine is a little different from mine so might have different parameters, but look in the list for "Accelerator pedal position". That one goes 0 to 100% - see attached.

    It sounds like you're looking at an absolute pressure. Absolute pressure has its zero point at a total vacuum, so without vacuum or boost it'll read atmospheric pressure which usually is around 14.5...

    It is, but on this transmission 6th gear is 1:1 ratio so output shaft speed = input shaft speed. And input shaft speed = engine RPM minus a little for torque converter slip.
