    Tuning Considerations

    Well the timing light gun drifts a bit on idle,with the screen open but as soon as i raise the rev it's stable.The timing disc has 4 teeth not equally spaced. I have unstable and week intake manifold pressure.Below it's a video showing the MAP signal(bottom left) on the Zeitronix display.The units are mmHg.The camshafts have 28° degrees overlap,244°/236° at 1mm of lift duration, 106° LSA and 12mm lift. Some questions I will alter my equation load source to BAP instead of MAP but does this has any effect while i am idling,standing still and i am in the sea surface.BAP works for BARO compensation which i don't understand if i need at the moment?Will this have any effect on idling or any effect at all?Asuming that i am not driving on a mountain course but in the city where the elevations are minimal. I will also alter the load axis at my fuel table from MGP to TP as the instructions indicate. 1)I see that in the Base Maps for the MX5 you have in your equation load source MAP.But in your fuel table load axis you have MGP.Why MGP and not MAP?I have read in the instructions that MAP it is not recommended but i can not figure out why? 2)On your ignition map you have as a load axis MAP.Why not MGP as it is used in the fuel table?Can i use MGP as a load axis in the ignition map instead of MAP? On my Zeitronix display i get a signal of 85 to 170 mmHg(fluctuating) which equals to(11 to 23 Kpa).Having on my ignition table MAP as load axis i sit on my ignition table 6° BTDC.On my ignition table 6° degrees is 80 Kpa which equals to 600 mmHg.How is this possible?The runtime values show 84 Kpa MAP and -17 Kpa MGP signal on the PC Link.Shouldn't i be sitting on the 15° degrees ignition angle as i have 11 to 23 Kpa(which my Zeitronix shows) intake manifold pressure?See the attached picture to see what the PC Link shows and what the Zeitronix display shows in order to become more understandable . Regarding the cold start i have read everything that has to do with it and also saw the webinars on HP Academy.But i need some help on the strategy to follow. I have seen that with the ISC Control makes a huge difference(easier) if it turned from Open Loop to Closed Loop.It was indicated to me that i should try to make the car idle as best as i can with the Open Loop On and then turn On the Closed Loop.How can i keep my ISC solenoid to keep up with my desired idle target?In a previous post Adam,you told me that '' It depends if you are using open loop or closed loop. If using open loop the base position table tells the idle valve how far open to be, the idle target table has no effect. In open loop mode the idle target table is only used for idle ignition control'' 3)Should i adjust the Duty Cycle of the ISC and meet the desired rev level for a given ECT temp(The Idle RPM Table probably will be my guide as the idle target,BUT has no effect on Open Loop)????How will i reach the desired rev level ? 4)When i hit F12 i get oil temp readings although i have not installed a gauge for oil? Sorry for the long post.Probably some things might not make much sense or did not explained them correctly.

    Tuning Considerations

    Hi there. I have started tuning my car and i am using the default values that are applied on the plug in units.I am using the MX5 map and after adjusting the Base Timing and the Master Fuel etc,etc i managed to fire the engine up.Congrats for the maps,great place to start if someone has a clue about what to do. I am having some questions though and many to follow up in the future. 1)First i would like to know at the Ignition Main there is Igniton Delay option.There is also that exact oprtion on the Trigger Calibration.Probaply those 2 numbers should match,right they are the same thing?So entering a value in one field means that i have to enter the same amount on the other. 2)Whats the relation between Idle Base Positon Table and Idle Target RPM Table?If for some reason i would like to raise the idle RPM target should i have to adjust the value on the Idle Base Positon Table?The values on that table(Idle Base Positon Table)mean how fast the idle will rise or fall?Because i did raise the idle RPM target and i did not noticed any change on the Idle Base Positon Table. 3)I have seen that my timing mark at 15 BTDC while it's stable at idle when i apply some throttle it drifts significantly.I have not adjusted the fitering option on Trigger Set Up for Crank(If that has to do with something)but i have adjusted the values that i am refering to in No1.Can't recall if i had them the same.My crank has 4 teeth and polarity is 100% correct because i used the pin of my OEM harness so only one wire towards Vipec plug accordingly.What can i do for that?

    Tuning Considerations

    1)Thanks. 2)Will look into this deeper. 3)I am sure that the screen is closed but i am also sure that i am sitting at 15 degrees on my ignition map and ISC ignition table.Will repeat the process and report back with the screen open.The ECU it's a Vipec i88 latest board version,Serial Number 18553 running the latest firmware. Some more questions... 4)What's the difference between PCLink G4+ V5.6.5.3338b ENG-JPN VV5.6.5(latest) and PCLink G4+ V5.6.5.3338 ENG-JPN V5.6.5. on the PC Link downloads? As i have said i am using the example base map that it is included in the software.The map that i am using it's for the Mazda MX5 and suited for my needs.I have set my Master Fuel from 16ms(originally) to 7ms(I am using Siemens Deka 550EV14 fuel injectors) and i have not touched the fuel map values. 5)The question is..Is it better to have small master fuel and bigger values on the fuel table or the opposite? 6)What's the purpose of Master Fuel Trim?Other than turning the value of Master Fuel decimal i dont see any other point. Thanks in advance.

    Vipec i88 wiring

    Hi there. I am bulding my harness for my Mazda Miata 99 model,with an adapter so i am using my exhisitng engine harness in order to terminate it to my Vipec i88,with plugs A and B. I have the ECU pinout but i have some leftovers pins from my ECU that i cannot decide where they should go on the Vipec. 1)First my ISC valve has to wires which are 3M and 3Q pins on my ECU.According to Vipec manual ''Two terminal ISC solenoids need only one auxiliary output (or ignition channel) to open the solenoid. A spring is used to automatically close the solenoid. Connect one terminal to the engine managements power supply and connect the remaining terminal to an Auxiliary/ Ignition Output Output. The orientation of the wires does not matter. An ISC solenoid must be wired to a switched power supply.'' So if i am correct one of them should go to one Aux input and the other to +14V in Vipec plug A.My ''problem'' is that +14V is used in order to feed the Vipec.Are there any other pins in Vipec's plugs that give +12V output?Can i use the Aux +14V 9/10 on the plug B? The leftovers for completing the harness are the following. 2)1A Back up power supply(What is that really?) 3)1H Battery positive voltage monitor 4)1O General field coil control 5)1Q Generator warning light 6)1T Generator 7)3K Fuel tank level Note that the original alternator was controlled by my ECU.I purchased an old type alternator with the regulator build in from an older Mazda Miata. Attached is the ECU pin out. Thanks in advance,any help appreciated. 1999_ECU_diagram.pdf

    For continuity purposes the pin out of Euro models its slightly different from the US models. Cars equipped with immobilizer have the fuel pump in 3P on the ECU. Which is mine situation. Cars without immobilizer have the fuel pump in 3N. That is the reason. Apart from that,cars equipped with immobilizer( like mine) the fuel pump relay does not have the Light Green(without immobilizer they have the Light Green wire) wire but a Red/White color wire that goes to the 3P ECU.All the other colors match the fuel pump diagram.

    FIXED Thanks for all the support. After 3 years on jack stands and a major rebuild with top notch parts the car is ready to hit the road and track.

    Adam i will disconnect the fuel pump relay and send 12Volts straight to the fuel pump today after work.I will also try what you suggest me.The funny thing is that the car starts with the factory ECU.BUT I don't hear the fuel pump priming with the stock ECU either.

    Vipec i88 wiring

    Well I measured 12.3 Volts before the fuel pump relay but after the main engine relay on the White/Blue wire that's on the left. The one in the green circle.

    Vipec i88 wiring

    Haven't checked that but will do. Things are messed up a bit because I have build a harness adapter(very tidy) to connect the Vipec with the plugs of the OEM harness. Possibly have done something there. I know that the fuel pump for safety reasons primes when engine is started i.e. airflow is being created not when key is in ON position.Maybe a treaty of the OEM harness does not meet up with the philosophy of my adapter harness. Hope there isn't any damage with the board of the ECU.Is there a dedicated circuit inside the board where I can take a quick look and is it easy to open the case easily apart?

    Have done that also. Even changed Auxiliary Outputs. Can it be the something like the problem that it is described on this topic. Can I send to tech support the wiring diagram of my Mazda just in case there is something that overlooked. For example the earlier MX5's had a switch on the AFM. Mine doesn't (later model 2000 has a MAF which is deleted )but maybe there is somewhere else located that I missed.

    Vipec i88 wiring

    Have wired up everything. Coils do spark on test mode, injectors the same, fan kicks in etc etc. One problem though. When I put Auxiliary 5 on TEST ON which is my fuel pump I don't hear her priming. I have connected 3N from my engine harness to Auxiliary 5.The factory ECU pinout is on post No1. Another image on the bottom. Any ideas? The engine starts right away with the factory ECU. So no problem with fuel pump relay, fuel pump or main relay.
  13. Hi there. There are 2 types of knock sensors as far as i know in the automotive industry.The Bosch style(2 wires?) or also called donut style which is wideband and the others(1 wire?) that many early Japanese cars have like my Mazda MX5 1999 model,narrowband.I have seen it on Honda's and Mitsubishi engines. I will try to keep the factory knock sensor but i would like to add one more,Bosch type somewhere near the deck surface. Question The problem that i am ''facing'' is if i have to use some type of special wire? Shielded or not what you guys use when you extend the wire or add one sensor in an engine that hasn't got one from the beggining? If someone has experience from back to back testing on these type of knock sensors please chime in. How do these 2 compare,which is more user friendly(via the i88 platform) in terms of tuning and getting the job done right? I know that the outcome has to do with the users capabilities and experience but if all equal what more experience tunners use? If there isn't any room left in wiring near the deck surface other acceptable location that provide accurate readings? Thanks in advance!

    Knock Sensors Hookup Wire,Location,Performance?

    I purchased a Bosch knock sensor. Should I ground the shield and one wire to Shielded dedicated GND which Vipec has, or should I use GND OUT which is for sensors?

    1)The 3A is ground for the fuel injectors. 2)The 3B is the PCM ground 3)The 3C the output device ground(what's this?) All of them are factrory pins in my OEM harness. Till now i have grounded all my extra sensors and some factory ones such 3 GM MAP Sensor,CLT Sensor,Fuel pressure sensor and IAT Sensor to my Vipec where GND OUT is as this is for sensors.All of them in the same GND OUT. I don't know where to ground the 3A,3B and 3C pins in my Vipec.The original pin out of my harness is in top of the page.

    VDO 360 009 Cal Table

    Hi there. Anyone has a calibration table for this VDO sensor? It maxes out at 80 psi and also has a warning contact of low oil pressure wich is 6psi +/-2psi.

    VDO 360 009 Cal Table

    The fact is that I bought the Pull to Seat version and when I tried to connect the sensor to the connector the two plugs that are placed together went far way back. Only the one that is placed alone stayed flush with the connector body.
  21. iliasfyntanidis

    VDO 360 009 Cal Table

    Purchased the pressure sensor as stated above. The connector that I have to buy is Push to Seat or Pull to Seat?

    Greddy 3 Bar Map Sensor

    Hi there. I want to use my existing Greddy 3 Bar Map Sensor with my Vipec i88 ECU. I have found the calibration values in order to add this but it seems difficult ....Can anyone please chime in with a CAL table in the PC Link software,i.e. an exapmle would be grate. Below is the calibration table for Greddy. https://www.google.gr/search?q=greddy+3+bar+map+sensor+calibration&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwidgdDrt_DVAhUhJcAKHZmaDh4Q_AUICigB&biw=1094&bih=487#imgrc=4zWvYCTNeCERuM: Cheers!
