  1. My MINI is a GTS2 race car with NASA and BMWCCA. Some shots of it here
  2. I noticed your Injector Timing is set to 400 BTDC. I use 355 with stock cam advanced 10 degrees. No issue with dieseling. ENDYN BVH & TVS 900.

    Internal logging issue

    This log erasure issue has also happened to me several times. When I have a log it is fine, but occasionally (1 in 15 or 20 sessions) I attempt to download the log and the only thing there is from Key-On to download the file. I download the log after almost every track session (I may not after warm up or qualifying which are short sessions.) ECU logging is always On.
  4. The MINI is now running in GTS2 with NASA & BMW. I recently replaced the Eaton M45 with the TVS 900 running the 70 mm pulley. I will shortly receive the 65 mm and 60 mm pulleys which I will use to get the car to the top of the GTS2 power/weight. BMW MINI 031 100 Octane TVR900 850EV14 April 19 2019.pclr

    CAN setup MINILink

    Right now on my G4+ MINILink the only CAN setup I have is for DIYAutoTune CAN-EGT on CAN 1. Can I also enable Mini R50-R53 mode with OBD enabled on CAN 1? I didn't read anything in the help which lead me to believe I couldn't. Thanks, Alan
  6. Yes, I am talking about the 1302461 Catcam. And thanks for confirming throttle is good for restricting air flow.
  7. Thanks for the feedback! The dyno curves above give a 140 HP "average" using the GTS calculator. I can make 148 HP "average" and still be in GTS1. I have just fitted the KAVS JCW pulley in place of the stock size pulley. This should get me to at least the 148 HP "average". I'll know for sure by mid March. What cam are you thinking about? I was thinking about replacing the stock cam with Cat Cams 257 / 259 (street) cam. This is supposed to add low and midrange power. I was planning on restricting max HP via the E-throttle map. You mentioned using a restrictor instead?
  8. Hello, Here is the tune file for my 2003 MINI Cooper S that I race in GTS with NASA (National Auto Sport Association) and BMW Club Racing. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1JVhjpeVhWHSubJpOya5x56rsSomkDuUw/view?usp=sharing It is a stock MINI engine with 50 thousands over 9.3 to 1 compression pistons. Stock cam advanced 10 degrees on a Endyn big valve head. The SC is running the stock pulley producing 10 psi of boost max. It is a power to weight class so we attempt to get a flat HP curve, thus the unusually timing curve. Questions / Suggestions welcome. I am the tuner
  9. Found it - Bad connector made by me. Logging now. Just need to get the calibration set. Sorry for taking your time!
  10. I connected Pin 112 to the GND point used by the Oil Pressure Gauge. It is an Accutech SMi Oil Pressure Gauge. AccuTech™ SMi™ Oil Pressure Gauge In other words Pin 112 is connected to the same terminal as the black wire of the Oil Pressure Gauge. (I did this when using ANV8 - wasn't sure which terminal to GND for ANV9) Did I miss a GND connection?
  11. I've tried AN V8, AN v9, Cal5, and Cal6. When I put a VOM across AN V8 or AN V9 terminals I see varing voltage in the range of 0.8V to 1.8 indicating the OP sensor is outpuing "sane" values. What have I done wrong? Thanks, Alan BMW MINI 031 Large Plenum Intake July 12 2018.pclr ECU log 2018 July 13 4PM Oil Pressure Test.llg
  12. I use the MTX-L with the MiniLink G4+ on my 2003 R53. RED wire to switched 12V BLACK & WHITE wires to GND YELLOW to Pin 9 (AN Volt 7)
  13. I just fired my new MINI R53 with G4+ MINILINK. I made a bunch of changes to the base map to suit the new motor configuration. Car starts and idles fine. Have done some no load ring breakin. Been verifying sensor reading and will start tuning Knock Control next. The base map uses Analog Temp #2 as Inlet Air Temp with Sensor Type set to Std Bosch NTC. I believe this is incorrect. With the car sitting cold. The ECT sensor and 4 EGT sensors read 24C while the IAT sensor reads 11C. Would trying the Bosch 0 280 130 017 work better, does anyone have a cal file, or do I need to create my
