  1. Link made CAN wideband with LSU 4.9 or NTK

    Dave, you are right on the money when it comes to sensor failures. Just to add my 2c I have a Ecotrons CAN Lambda with their supplied Bosch 4.9 Sensor installed in my GTR. It's about 2-3 years old and it is still running on the original sensor. It's mounted at about 2:30. Not ideal, but the best I could do. No issues though, so hopefully it lasts even longer. The Link CAN-LAmbda seem to be okay but I have two customers that are having sensors fail prematurely. One that I will be requesting warranty on shortly actually. Innovate..... I will never purchase another one of their products again.. LM2, MTX, etc, all rubbish. Controllers fail, Sensors die etc. I've got two dead LM2 controllers. Cost me $50 to freight them to the US, and they sent them back and said there was nothing wrong with them. Plugged them in and they failed. I agree 100% with you also regarding battery voltage dropping while they are plugged in - They die!
  2. PWM control engine fan

    Here is what I think will work better than my last post.
  3. XS Expansion Loom

    oh, and something that needs to be added to the documentation (The colours so we don't have to pull the lid off the ECU to see what they are) : (GTRLink) Green = Sensor Ground Red = Sensor Power Grey = DI5 Brown = DI6 White = Volt 8 Blue = Volt 2 Yellow = Temp3 Orange = Temp4
  4. PWM control engine fan

    Absolutely perfect Simon. Thanks so much. I was going to do an axis on battery voltage, and have it pull out duty as the battery voltage drooped. But your way is much better.
  5. PWM control engine fan

    Hey mate, I was just about to post this exact same topic. You can indeed run the fan via PWM and with a solid state relay. The hurdle that I am not sure about is if the PWM ramps on at a reasonable pace or just comes on hard. I really want to ramp it on slowly over 3 seconds or so. I hope Link can sort this out. Would be perfect for fuel pumps too.
  6. Knock feature

    I support this.
  7. 2x Target AFR MAPS

    I agree with this. We have two now, but we can't switch the second one with our own conditions (like with a virtual auxiliary) I need to set a Virtual Auxiliary so that it switches to a leaner cruise AFR target map for 5th and 6th gear. I can't have the leaner sections in my normal AFR target map because it makes the car bog a lot and feel unresponsive when it is passing through these cells. (I run 1.22 Lambda for e85 to get good range)
  8. Continental Flex fuel sensor

    So glad I found this thread. I have the exact same sensor - The ECA-2. I got the little hackers screen for the Ethanol readout. I was not keen on connecting all of those inputs to the analogue inputs, so splice in and just use a digital input. Â Â
  9. ALM-CAN WIndeband Meter connection via CAN BUS

    Wow... thanks guys! I will check it out and see if I can get it working with those settings. Your support is fantastic.
  10. ALM-CAN WIndeband Meter connection via CAN BUS

    Sorry - in Australia. Sending the unit could be possible though.
  11. ALM-CAN WIndeband Meter connection via CAN BUS

    Is there anything that I can do? I have a new unit here, and wanted to connect it via the CAN Bus. Are you able to "guess" the settings with the information that I Have given you?
  12. ALM-CAN WIndeband Meter connection via CAN BUS

    I email ALM and they sent me this, which looks exactly like the data we need to configure the CAN bus. Maybe once sorted we can make a .lcs stream file? Â
  13. Hi, I have just purchased one of these ALM-CAN wideband units because it uses the newer, faster, and longer duty cycle Bosch sensor (4.9LSU) Here is a link to the Unit:Â http://www.ecotrons.com/products/wideband-controller-alm-can/ Here is a link to its manual containing the CAN BUS setup:Â http://www.ecotrons.com/files/ALM-CAN%20Manual.pdf It goes into great detail about all of the data bits etc. I don't even know where to start when configuring it though. Is it possible I get some help? Maybe configure a PCL file for me and post it so that I can copy the settings into mine? I hope I am not asking for too much. Thanks Â
