    convert tune file from traditional to modelled

    one further kind of related question - I see that in the fuel setup help file it says that interpolate between can only be used for modeled or modeled multi-fuel. what will happen if traditional mode is used and interpolate between is selected?

    convert tune file from traditional to modelled

    thanks Adam - that's pretty well as I had assumed, thanks. And yes, the other small relevant changes to fuel and corrections setup. cheers! Tim
  3. hey guys, I've got an ECU that's tuned and running well but it's been done in traditional fuel mode and there are a few things confusing me... the biggest thing is that I'm used to setting up tune files in modeled fuel mode and am wondering if I can simply change the fuel setup over to modeled multi fuel mode without creating problems with the fuel map?

    switch type TPS + single cam sensor

    Ok well that's good news to hear! I was led off that scent completely because there was spark when I checked the plugs sitting on top of the engine and never thought that the igniter would be built into the ECU! Stupid of me to assume. Hopefully I'll have a clip to share of it running soon! Yup sure enough one little Fuji Electric ET 424 transistor tucked away on the board https://photos.app.goo.gl/p5XDzxzm3KzU246p7

    still no joy on either front... BUT... I'm willing to how my arse here a little... as it were I somehow overlooked the fact that the factory IGN wiring does not include an igniter and therefore the setup is currently wired so that IGN output 1 from the Link is directly coupled to the -ve on the coil. I have not looked closely at this solely due to the fact that there seems to be spark but perhaps only a very weak one??? should this setup work or do I need to add an IGN driver? I have plenty of them and my goodness that would be an easy fix if that's the culprit !!

    ahhh OK I didn't know about the 400rpm threshold. I've got an adjustable timing light so bumping it to 10deg is easy I'll try the timing tweak first then add some juice in the intake and see what transpires thanks again! Tim

    I tried wetting the plugs before fitting and this didn't yield any response but I haven't tried an alternative fuel, no. I would have thought fresh 98 would be more than enough but maybe a bit of ether wouldn't hurt.. it does occasionally 'pop' when I turn the key off after cranking which sort of suggests to me that it's a timing issue...? maybe I've looked at it too many times and can't see my own mistake just to double check... base timing on these engine's is normally 10deg BTDC but I've set a timing mark at no.1 piston TDC so, when I am setting the base timing at the distributor, the correct way is to go into the "set base timing" function and lock ignition timing to 0 degrees BTDC then adjust the dizzy to the TDC mark with the timing light, correct? there's no logic in my mind that I should be setting the locked angle to 10deg, right?

    *update* still banging my head against the bench with this one! have double checked the wiring to the ECU, drained the fuel system and cleaned, including the tank, pulled the head off and checked clearances then re-fitted and triple checked cam timing and the thing still won't fire... I'm sure something will jump out eventually but I'm really at odds. while the head was off I also checked the timing mark on the front pulley with a DTI, on no.1 piston, and it's bang on at TDC any other thoughts and ideas would be really appreciated!! related... I checked the TPS wiring again and it's a very strange setup. there's no +5v, only a sensor earth then I suppose an earth switch back to the ECU for IDL and PWR... is this normally how the switch type TPS operate?

    thanks I'll go over the basics again. there's definitely fuel because the plugs are coming out wet there is spark.. and the timing is as per my mark but I could have been having a dull moment and set up the mark poorly.. dunno. even if that were the case, I wouldn't have thought a few degree would make much difference.. will do a compression test, too which will answer any questions of cam timing but it's a freshly built engine with factory tolerances so should be OK

    ahh sorry I should have said... nope, no staging. it's also wired to run batch so all 3 nozzles are wired to inj #1 pin

    one more thought, I have set the injection mode to group / staged, is this correct for my triggering mode? I've just read the configuration help file again on injector mode setting and am wondering whether I should be using multi-point group?

    Hey there.. yes, I set the timing with a timing light, while cranking and sorry yes the TP main (PWR wire pin) is connected to AN Volt not DI.. my mistake Just had another crack at it and no joy but noticed that it was reading 85% ethanol... I have never had a sensor connected to this setup but I assume that it has taken the ethanol sensor fault value from a previous setup (this particular ECU was not brand new for this car) and applied this because it couldn't see a sensor reading....?? I can't imagine how it would alter fuel because of this given that dual fuel table or any fuel corrections for % ethanol are not active but it's the only thing I can see that's out of place... any other ideas would be great! here's another log from cranking over tonight and adjusting fuel table Log 2018-06-20 5;29;46 pm.llg

    thanks for looking at that so quickly - yes, I'm using switch type TPS for now. will see how it drives before I throw that away. I have pinned the idle switch wire to DI1 and the PWR (power?!) wire to TPS main... looking at these now, nothing seems to be happening at the DI pin and the PWR wire ain't doing much when I depress the throttle so I'll go back and check that wiring for sure I set base timing by making a [#1 cyl] TDC timing mark on the front pulley when building the engine (not ideal I know but I can't access the flywheel with it all together), then set the timing configuration on the ECU to 0deg and adjusted the dizzy to suit. does this sound correct to you? I may have flooded it early on without knowing so I'll leave the plugs out over night and try again tomorrow. they're brand new so a little difficult to see if they're wet or not when I pull them. can definitely smell fuel though so it's getting through alright and the expected 300kPa is showing at the reg, as I've entered into the ECU fuel settings...I'll persevere for now thanks again!

    OK so I've made those changes and the log is returning sensible revs while cranking at approx 300rpm it spluttered once but other than that no real sign of life. I have made some significant changes in the fuel table ranging over 30% VE I am a little suspect about the TPS calibration. it doesn't seem to be returning sensible numbers and jumps from 0 to 100% sometimes ( you can see this in the log ).. in my mind this shouldn't really stop it from firing?? I have set accel enrichment to MAP and figure that for starting and idle it's only going to be looking at calculated mass flow for fuelling, regardless of what it thinks the throttle position is, is this correct? latest log and data file attached... cheers Tim Log 2018-06-18 5;30;55 pm.llg G4+ Atom Mira EF-JL.pclr

    Thanks for that, I'll give it a try this arvo and let you know how it goes Cheers Tim
