My ignition updater after I connect my i3 doesn't show my tune or my vehicle's vin # on the display.
IS this because the lacrosse super isn't "officially" supported by the Diablo?

just a newb here who's never tune a fuel injected car before. A relic from years long passed when tuning was done with a few turns of a carb screw and few inches on the distributor and smelling the exhaust and listening to valves tap under heavy load.

yes it has your 91 tune currently installed. But I was telling Lew it still sounds like its dropping into 4clyinder mode but I can't tell for sure as mine doesn't have the little light that its sister cars the imapala ss and gxp shows when it drops down to afm mode.
How to I bring up xml file?

Sorry it took me a minute of digging around but I finally figured out how to access the tune file in xml format.

Let me know if you can tell if the afm is disabled

Also, maybe not i3 related but I have noticed when I plug the device into my car's OBD port, my car's hvac, and radio control lights will "flash" when plugging it in and removing it. Bad or loose wire on the obd port?

Mine is doing the same thing?

Vehicle has been tuned and even has a custom tune loaded. It shows the VIN on the i3 but not the Updater?

Nothing to be concerned with here.
