    3sgte unstable ignition

    Another possibility is your timing light is goofing up.
  2. Want to say thanks to Link Engine Management for sponsoring the Dsm/Evo/Gtr shootout in Norwalk, OH back in August of this year, the turnout was great and I had no actual idea that there was going to be a Link dealer at the event, so it was a great surprise to see them not only there but they ended up parked beside us which was either a coincidence or on purpose, either way it was a great weekend!

    Is there a way

    Is there a way to make the text in these forums appear darker? its tough to see with the light background?
  4. Could you have had hydraulic cam followers that took some time to bleed down? possibly holding an intake valve slightly open...

    Full lean under light throttle load

    Are you certain that your injector dead times are correct?

    Fire up problem cold start on e85

    In my experience with E85, they are typically harder to start when its cold or the car has sat for a week or so, I havent came upon a good fix yet, although I have tried a few different attempts, that being said the stock ecu had the same issues with E85 so its not just standalone having the problem, its possibly the injectors not atomizing the ethanol as well as the gasoline and the higher flash point and water intrusion that happens with ethanol.

    flamethrower tune help

    You can retard your ignition as much as 20 degrees but I wouldnt go much farther than that and then add fuel enough to make flames if you really need to, but keep in mind that it can be hard on parts, including your turbo, exhaust manifold, and if your not careful it can cause valve to piston contact in some cases.

    flamethrower tune help

    Most people would just rather have their car run clean and pull nice, this crap is why the import culture gets laughed at and not taken seriously, making noise and fire just to annoy people that dont want to hear your car or see your car making exhaust fire shouldnt be your main priority, try to go fast with some CLASS, that will get you the RIGHT kind of attention for a change.

    Base maps/ ignition timing

    On alcohol that could be a non issue, again it comes down to the mods, and the turbo size, some of those areas would never even be usable by my setup! He needs to run a map tracer so that we know what areas are actually being seen by the ecu, engine damage could have happened by any number of things in the past, an air leak or poor quality fuel etc can take pistons out, who knows. There are also areas in his tuned map that are less aggressive than the provided stock map so it comes down to input from him.

    And another since I was bored and it was so nice out.

    Base maps/ ignition timing

    Depends on what fuel is being used also.

    Base maps/ ignition timing

    It doesnt look all that much more aggressive than the other one to me, the best thing you could do is to run a stock map and datalog your car so everyone can see what areas of the ignition and fuel map are in use, some areas almost never get touched.

    2JZ Electric Power Steering Pump

    I have ran a MR2 pump for about 5 years now, I dont use the factory controller which I do have, it is not built in to the pump assembly. I simply use the factory relay to turn it on and several large resistors (radiator fan type) to slow the motor down to a reasonable speed to save current draw and motor life, works fine no problems, enough assist in parking lots (your not going to one finger it with this setup) but not too much on the highway.

    Blown engine!

    Thats detonation damage causing the rings to get pinched, what fuel were you running?

    Throwing in a photo shoot of the ride since there is no place specified for photos of cars.

    I just noticed your post here, how far have you gotten?

    Cal table resolution

    Ok, thanks much!

    Cal table resolution

    Is there any way to increase the Cal3 table resolution beyond the 16 or so columns that are provided? I would like my input from my wideband to be able to show more values than I currently can see. Its bad enough with the AEM already since they dont have any progamable outputs like the Innovate does, you would think that the X series being newer would have at least had the ability to display E85 on the gauge with its popularity, instead though all that can be displayed is either lambda or Gasoline afr's and not in the range that the Innovate can, and also no narrowband simulation output. Sillyness. Had I not needed a new wideband I would have stuck with the Innovate and all of its ground issues.

    Cal table resolution

    Ok, its been a while since I have had the cover off of the ecu so my memory of it isnt great.

    Cal table resolution

    VR4 plug in, come to think of it though, I think I should already have the can inputs on the plug that I made to input the Ethanol sensor on?
  21. motomattx

    Cal table resolution

    Ok, so I just need the can cable then?

    Cal table resolution

    Gotcha! thanks. I was hoping that the new X series was much better, I checked the reviews and it won the wideband shootout so I said what the heck, I hadnt heard anything negative about them. I was wondering if the sensor was Bosch or not, all of the ones that I have had that are Bosch say Bosch right on the metal area of the sensor, this one didnt but the plastic on the plug had the bosch symbol on it? maybe just a Bosch plug but not sensor? This seems to clear things up some: https://www.aemelectronics.com/forum/question-about-genuine-bosch-lsu49-sensor

    Cal table resolution

    From the data points provided by Aem in the manual it didnt look all that linear at first glance and if it is then why do they give 17 data points? also I guess what Im getting at is that i would like to be able to see lambda beyond 1.23 and it seem that is as far as I will be able to view with the AEM unit?

    4g63 boost control.

    Yes accel enrichment.

    4g63 boost control.

    It sounds like you might need to adjust either the injector latency/dead time (how sure are you that you have this right?) or the response fuel.
