    Engine protection question

    Literally just went through this last week setting all of mine up. You have to choose between fuel pressure and AFR because oil occupies one of them and you wouldn't skip that. My take-away from it was that you can cover a lot more issues (such as injector failure rather than just fuel pressure failure) by doing AFR protection rather than fuel pressure.

    Engine Protection - Fuel

    Hi All, I am hoping to hear some people share their thoughts and strategies on how they do Fuel-based engine protection and get a little bit of info on how the Link ECU handles duty cycle. For background, I have Sequential Injection mode with Modelled Multi fuel and FP Sensor for Fuel System Type. With the Link ECU, how is the duty cycle calculated? The reason I ask this is that I was considering using it for engine protection if they were to adjust based on fuel requirements (and thus, drastically increasing in duty cycle if the fuel pressure/supply were to drop), then inj DC% could be used as a means of engine protection? Given the option of fuel pressure, Lambda, or Injector DC%. What one do you guys use? Cheers

    As it turns out, the Speedo was working after having fixed the Tacho on Pin 45, but I didnt make the car move fast enough to 'wake it up'. Its a Mitsubishi thing... Once I got it out on the road it sorted itself out again. I am declaring this project a success! A great many thanks for your support AdamW. Once again you are a tribute to the company and its great to have this kind of support available to people like myself. Thanks to Clint for pitching in as well. It all helps. As is with the first time around for anything like this, you come out the other end with a long list of things you would have done differently. But having ironed out all the kinks in my Visio diagram, Version 2.0 will definitely be an improvement. Certainly not scheduled for anytime soon though... Need to forget how annoying some of it was. If anyone is reading this and mad enough to have the same intentions, drop me a line. I am sure I could save you a fair bit of time.

    Well Pin 45 got terminated to Aux 2 and is working as expected now... unfortunately my Speedo is still AWOL. Any final suggestions here before I have to start digging deep??? Hell it could even be a fuse at this point. Ultimately it was working on the PnP... So I presume there was some trick used with that but whether its documented, or you can disclose it, or if I can replicate it, is another thing.

    Cool to hear and explains why it doesn't exist anywhere. Based on a couple of electrical diagrams I have seen while looking around, I think your theory about sharing VSS signal might end up being on point. There are a lot of crossovers between the Tacho and speedo gauges so based on the fact that both functioned fine with the plugin, putting Pin 45 on an Aux may just fix both of them. Tomorrow is another day. Thanks once again.

    Alright - little further down the line now. She starts!!! Its all behaving well so far. Only catch/issues that I can identify is that my Tacho and Speedo are not working. I am asking here first on the off-chance that this is an ECU problem... There is between little and no information on either of these in the Link Pinout Guides/Pin Function sheets and only one very isolated reference to Tacho on Pin 45 on a wiring diagram I have. There doesn't seem to be any reference to Speedo or Tacho outputs on the Plug'n'Play either so I am getting the feeling this is not something you guys can answer, but it would be great to eliminate it being an ECU thing. Cheers.

    Yep you nailed it. Was not sure about all the main relay stuff at all. All the messing around with wiring has probably has saved me pain elsewhere though as the 12v is better distributed. Everything is behaving itself now. Not entirely sure how the ECU let me test most of the inputs/outputs without any power going to the 2 main spots. Glad I didnt axe anything. The strangest thing that happened throughout the I/O testing was the Aux3 for the boost control solenoid was somehow triggering the fuel pump... Behaves fine now that there is actual power. Thanks once again for the amazingly prompt seemingly 24/7/365 support.

    Thanks Adam, I just re-wired things a little. It made no substantial difference so I am starting to think there is nothing specifically wrong with the 12v wiring but rather the relay triggering. With the previous testing, I had both the A and B looms spliced and joined to Pin 47 (dont ask me why...I quite honestly dont know). I have since moved the B-Loom to Pin 59. I now have the A-Loom on 47 and the B-Loom on 59. Results were still as follows: 12v internal - 11.3 Aux 9/10 - 1.3 Aux 17/20 - 12.29 Batt Voltage - 1.3 This at least confirmed that BOTH of the main 12v runs are doing nothing. So it draws me back to the main engine relay config and I can already see some things that are probably wrong. For starters, I have the Main Relay Driver set to OFF and Ignition Switch is set to HIGH and by the looks of the diagram I think its supposed to be low??? I have terminated the "Ign Sw" to pin 99 and "Main Relay+" to Pin 57 as you suggested. Can you give me some guidance on where to look for such things and what to set them to? I currently have no e-Throttle fitted. I have just run power to all channels for future use. Many thanks.

    Okay - So we are much further down the rabbit hole now with this project. Plenty of hurdles and still a few to go before I can turn the key. I have hit a couple I would love some external input on because I am scratching my head a lot. I am putting the questions here because they are going to be too obscure for their own thread. In order: The most concerning one is my 12v power readings in the ECU. I am getting the following: - Multimeter (straight onto the battery) 11.82v - 12v internal (in ECU Runtimes - A-Loom???) 10.93v - 12v D-Loom Supply (in ECU Runtimes) 11.85v -12V B-Loom Supply (in ECU Runtimes) 3.41v Now for the D-Loom, I have run a brand new 12v constant. Hence that delicious reading there. For the A-Loom and B-Loom, I have just joined them with a crimp splice onto the existing 12v harness pin. I am assuming 12v internal is referenced to the A-Loom input. You can imagine my confusion when I have the 12v internal reading 10.93v (which is a bit low but not terrible) while the B-Loom is reading 3.41v off the exact same wire. Does this mean its overloaded??? Haven't even started the car yet. If anybody can give me a good reason for this it would be much appreciated. At the moment, I am re-crimping the join to see if it was somehow a trash join despite getting zero resistance over it. Failing any kind of success from the re-crimp, I am going to most likely move the B-Loom 12v supply over to the D-Loom. Off the back of that, can anyone tell me how many amps each of these 12v ECU rails take??? I very much doubt its an issue but I dont want to overload the wire I am using or fuse it wrong. This is kind of outside of the initial project scope. If there are any bored souls out there this Good Friday that can answer this and keep me working there will be some good karma headed your way. Thanks in advance!

    Thats awesome Clint - thanks for the reply. Had most of those points checked but couldn't make heads or tails of the shield grounds. Its good to know how it works from the internal perspective too as it confirms that its basically 'just another thing to ground' rather than something unusual. I will assume there will be no issue while its all connected to the factory harness. I also read about passing the shield ground through the bulkhead plugs as well (even though I dont think I will ever be making use of it) by daisy chaining them together and passing them all through a single pin. Was a tidy solution to tuck away for later. Thanks Again

    Sorry to resurrect thread - Just finalising the wiring for this project and realised that I dont have my 'Shield/Gnd' pins terminated to anything on any of my plugs. Saves a lot of background if I post here. lol. My understanding is that these are for grounding shielded cables from things like Hall/Proximity sensors. I was unable to find any references to shield grounding anywhere for the Evo so am I safe to assume that the Shield/Gnd pins do not have to be utilised for my particular project? How do our Crank and Cam sensors work if this is the case? Presumably grounded somewhere else in the harness??

    Genuine MAP Sensor?

    Thanks Clint - I was expecting as much, but I was hoping that it would at the very least be the same "sensor" relating to the internals of the unit.

    Genuine MAP Sensor?

    Hi Guys, I just bought this from a local e-retailer. It was advertised as a Link 4bar MAP Sensor (MAP4). It came in that generic plastic packaging you can see on the left and has no branding, packaging, or label anywhere. The physical appearance of the sensor is similar to your own but thats where the similarities end. While I am not concerned about all the 'frills', I am concerned about the quality of the sensor itself, and your reputation. I dont want to waste my time installing it if its not the real deal. I realise that just about everything is a re-brand/re-badge job these days and that these may indeed be your sensors without the branding on it. If thats the case fine, if not, I will probably be asking for a refund as it is false advertisement and inferior quality. Thanks in advance.

    This sounds like an awesome piece of kit. Is it a custom job or are you purchasing from somewhere? Would you mind sharing?
