    Something I've done recently is add a knock warning to my CE Light, I used a math block to calculate knock level - threshold and put it through a gp output to get an off delay (hold time) and fed it into the CE Light Aux. So far I've only used it for playing around with setting up my thresholds (so I can see how often it happens and for a clearer picture of when it happens) but I imagine it will be very useful once I've finished setting u the knock too. It has also been very useful for reviewing Knock stuff in PCLink logs as often the knock stuff happens too fast to be caught by PCLink but the knock light status can be used to see when it occurs without needing to actually see the knock level above the threshold.

    Charge Temp Table

    Yes, but you will need a whole lot more energy than a heat gun. It not only needs to heat all the air, but the whole intake system, pipework, and anything else before the air temp sensor. You also want quite a noticable change in air temp - at least 5 deg, preferably 10. Blocking the intercooler airflow on a turbo car usually works or ducting hot air from exhaust or radiator into the airbox on a NA car is needed.

    Couple of things on WRX107X

    When the clutch is disengaged there is no longer a fixed relationship between RPM & speed, so the gear cant be calculated.

    Crank Sensor Trigger 1 output

    Testing is complete. All 6 injectors clicked. No ignition spark from any spark plugs...but i found my problem. The previous owner installed a relay to power the coils. The car has a power on and fuel pump on toggle and I found a broken wire from the fuel pump on relay going to the relay that powers the coils. The relay should have switched when I powered on the fuel pump but did not. As soon as I forced the relay I had spark....then the engine started once I reassembled the stuff I had taken apart looking for the problem. I learned a lot in this process and feel more comfortable with what I have. This started out with me trying to reduce the wire clutter. Now I know the wires I removed were not the problem so I will continue simplifying the remnants. Pictures attached of what we were working on. Should be able to make it to Watkins Glen in New York state this coming Monday. Thanks again for the support. All my work buddies (mates) have been told about then customer service you provide.

    Pulstar sparkplugs

    I would agree with Vaughan's comment, from the extra noise you have on the lambda trace it suggests you have a misfire or at least 1 cylinder with very poor combustion. It is definitely not due to an increase in torque or efficiency - probably quite the opposite.

    Pulstar sparkplugs

    If the idle got rougher and it is showing a leaner afr it seems reasonably likely that it is missing which causes a leaner afr (sensor measures how much unburnt oxygen there is).

    Suggested Settings for Mixture Map

    Yes, mixture map can be used from road logs. Set up a Transient filter Eng speed < 250rpm/sec and another with TP<5/sec will get rid of a lot of the inconsistent data. Here's a video I done for someone else earlier with some further info: https://1drv.ms/v/s!AiYbYlZQuRHPszz5hTxJ8ec0MitL?e=2JbDVh

    Combining Power Grounds?

    The ground wires on the Link looms are 18awg, 120°C rated, so will handle about 15A each. Obviously my 60A example was stating the worst case example so that you or anyone else that reads this post in future has good information to base their decisions on. It would be very rare in real life to ever have a scenario where every output is running at 100% DC all at the same time but with power wiring it is important to consider what you have connected, the maximum DC/loads, the wire lengths, the insulation temperature rating and the amount of voltage drop that you consider is acceptable. I have seen many fails in my time where the installer has assumed because the ECU works fine with a 5A fuse that they only need a ground capable of 5A. All ground pins are connected internally to the same ground plane so I cant think of any electrical theory reason to do so, I suspect this is more just a statement that was made to encourage installers not to take shortcuts on arguably the most important wires.

    Combining Power Grounds?

    Was the intent of that "DO NOT JOIN" warning mostly so that someone doesn't combine too small of a gauge wire to all the power ground wires or was it more for noise immunity? Just intrigued.

    Launch Control Speed Input 3D Table

    Worked well. Arming and disarming with DI1. Speed Lockout set to 1. (If i leave it on 0 - launch won't engage) Launch disarmed when DI1 goes off. White Ford Fiesta. RPM 6000 1.6 bar in the intake on the start. Don't even need bangs to get these stunning results with Link. Launch Control

    G4X PCLink 6.17.22

    just checked again and yeah, that seems to be right. Though I swear yesterday I checked it was showing all options for all GP outputs without assigning a pin. Thank you

    Combining Power Grounds?

    It should be ok through a single pin provided it can handle the current with a good safety margin above steady state to allow for in-rush and minimal voltage drop etc. An Xtreme for instance, 10 aux outputs capable of 2A each, 8 inj drives capable of 5A each = 60A total ground current fully loaded = unlikely to work through a single ground pin... However if you only have 4 x injectors that pull 1A each and a few auxes pulling 0.5A then a single ground pin would be fine.

    G4X PCLink 6.17.22

    GP Outputs and GP PWM Outputs don't display the rest of the settings until an output is selected. Do you have a screenshot of a GP Output with an output set but no settings showing?

    Momentary switch for anti theft?

    The anti-theft function doesnt have a "latch" function to enable a momentary switch to work, but you could achieve what you want by setting the DI up as a GP input and using this on a GP limit table (or 3D RPM or 3D Map limit table). With the settings below, the ECU will always boot up with the kill DI "on". The kill DI wont turn off until you hit the button and will stay off until either the button is hit again or the ign is switched off. You can then put that DI status on a GP limit so that the REV limit is 0 when the switch is on (eng wont run).

    G4X PCLink 6.17.22

    It seems to work ok for me. Are you doing this online or offline? If offline, is the map you are working with from an ecu with the latest firmware?

    Hi Grant, In case my user name didn't give it away, I'm Andre from HPA We went down the path of online training because it allows us to help more people all around the world, and we firmly believe that it offers significant advantages to in-person training. It's a cost effective option since you don't need to travel, and you also have the advantage of being able to re-watch our courses as many times as you like. This means you can brush up on concepts that you're not clear on, or revisit concepts that you've perhaps forgotten since initially taking the course. The key to our courses though is our support community which is where we bridge the gap between online and in-person training - We believe strongly in supporting our members and this is where our private online forum and our regular weekly webinars help back up the course material. The forum is the perfect place to get fast and reliable answers to your questions, while our weekly webinars are the fastest way to expand your tuning knowledge on a range of engines and platforms, as well as staying up to date with the latest technologies. I couldn't agree more with Ben's comment about the requirement at some point to transition into hands-on experience and that's exactly why we developed our 'remote practice dyno' where you can get real world hands-on experience tuning a real engine on a real engine dyno without leaving your house. The online practice dyno is currently operating a Link G4+ Fury ECU which may be helpful to you given you're on this forum. You can find out more about the online practice dyno here: We understand that buying online education can be tricky and we want our members to be able to purchase with confidence which is why we also offer a 60 day, 100% money back guarantee - If for any reason you feel our courses aren't right for you, we will refund the full purchase price. If you're interested in getting a taste of what HPA is all about then I'd suggest you start by signing up for our free six-part series of lessons. This will give you some insight into how we work and what we can offer: https://www.hpacademy.com/free-tuning-lessons In the perfect world I believe the best solution is to get as much training as possible - Both in person and online. I found that when I was operating my own performance workshop however, that unless the in-person training was local, the cost of training staff in this way was usually prohibitive. I'm happy to answer any questions you may have

    EFI University or HPA?

    Hi All, Ben here from EFI University. Honestly, you really can't go wrong with any of the choices out there. Ben and Andre at HPA do a really great job and we have nothing negative to say, in fact a lot of our customers tell us they've used both and learned things from both. We try really hard to focus on giving our clients a real world "experience" by letting them actually put their hands on the dyno and doing the work. It's obviously a different approach to the learning process than an online experience, and we realize that due to cost and time not everyone can take advantage of this platform so we do offer some online training as well. As we move forward we may offer more of the online stuff based on requests from customers, but it's unlikely we'll ever transition to online only as it just doesn't stack up in real value to the customer the way a true hands-on experience does. I always like to use flight training as an example...you can only play on Microsoft Flight simulator for so long and eventually you HAVE to get into the airplane. No matter what, the experience will be different in real life so while we absolutely agree there is value in online video based training, our focus will always remain on training in a real world environment. I hope that was a helpful introduction and explanation of our core philosophy and if anyone had any questions don't hesitate to call or drop an email! Thanks, Ben Strader, President, EFI University, inc
