    Pin install - quick sense check

    Thank you, will get them ordered, will check the lead time on it first though.

    Pin install - quick sense check

    I have asked around at work to see if anyone has a pair, I am over in the UK so might be a bit more limited in terms of some of the options, I have found the below - are any of them any good (sorry they are all Amazon it seem, not a site I ever want to use)? 1.25mm > 6.3mm https://www.amazon.co.uk/Qiilu-Professional-Terminal-Harness-Crimping/dp/B076CJL1FW/ Similar but better quality: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Barrel-Terminal-Crimper-DELPHI-Terminals/dp/B01A6U5242/ This one has a set of dies so might be handy: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Voilamart-Ratcheting-Professional-Non-Insulated-Screwdriver/dp/B07F9VBMW4

    Thank you, will look to get a set asap

    Pin install - quick sense check

    Thank you for the info, will go and buy a crimper and do it properly, will probably need to crimp a few connectors in the future. What do I need to look for when ordering? Just open barrel crimper? Are there different types?

    Are these ok to use?

    Pin install - quick sense check

    Thank you, will go and find an open barrel crimper, I am still awaiting a barb adapter to arrive for me to be able to wire in the Link ECU with the MAP sensor that has just arrived so have a bit of time! Will check to see what my wire stripper has and if its ok to use - might actually be the sort I need.

    Pin install - quick sense check

    Hi all, Just about to add in some additional pins into connector B to add in wideband O2 readings into the CAN inputs (its via an AEM X Gauge with CAN output). Am I correct to say that I need to push the white tab on the side in to unlock the pins to then insert additional pins? I have spare pins to be added in, how do I attach the wiring to the pin, do I solder and crimp or just crimp? How should I crimp the wire to the pin (I have a standard wire stripper/crimping tool, is that ok?)?

    Laptop recommendation

    Thanks for that, yeah I could look at getting a Bluetooth keyboard for it - it only has 1 USB port which I will need for mapping! I will see how well it runs on the tablet I have, its not the most powerful but seems to do the job at the moment.

    Laptop recommendation

    Hi all, Unsure which section of the forum I should aim this at but I felt tuning might be the best, I currently have a 10.1" Windows 10 tablet which I use for logging on my Power FC ECU I currently have which lets me swap out maps and make changes easier than using the PFC hand commander. I have a Link Xtreme going in and was thinking that it might be better if I upgraded to a laptop - mainly due to the fact that the tablet is touch screen so not 100% perfect for more precise adjustments and also using an onscreen keyboard etc. I was just wondering what everyone was using for a laptop used for tuning - I initially went for a tablet as the battery life is usually better than some laptops etc, just wondering if I should go for a laptop with a better battery life or aim for one with more RAM or maybe a better processor - I am unsure what is usually maxxed out when tuning/logging. Thanks in advance!

    Auto ignition retard?

    Thank you - will copy the map over, good to know I can't do too much damage NA, will learn more via the HP Academy webinars etc coupled with some road tuning.

    Auto ignition retard?

    Hi all, Just in the process of getting my Link ECU all wired in, have a few sensors still to arrive to convert the car over to using a MAP sensor etc. I am also having a look at the HP Academy webinars etc as it has quite a few guides on the various aspects of the Link in a real world scenario. I can see that there is a quick tune option for fueling which should help to quickly adjust the fueling I have to the AFR targets (will be initially doing some road tuning to get an initial map), is there any functionality of having an auto ignition option at all? I will probably retard the ignition for the whole map initially so that its safer before logging data during some road tuning. I only ask as with my (now obsolete) Power FC I am using 'Copilot' which can do auto fueling (although not used) as well as auto spark which retards the ignition if knock levels are over a certain level. I only ask as I used this option to pull back timing automatically (and write it to the map) if knock levels were at a certain limit which would then make the map slightly safer - I know that the Link ECU has knock protection which the Power FC doesn't have, but just wanted to ask. I guess it might be a case of perhaps retarding the ignition slightly, sort the fueling out and then tweak the ignition slightly whilst checking knock levels? I will be using the original high mileage engine initially to try out the ECU and tune it a bit, I am currently building a fully forged engine which I will initially run NA, then bolt a turbo on at a later date (will be going to a dyno for mapping when I do go turbo) - but gains NA aren't that big and am just looking to optimise/learn on the old engine first - not too worried if something fails. Thanks in advance!

    Basemap?

    Just ordered an AEM 3.5 Bar MAP sensor and another temp sensor for the intake air temp - although it looks like this is taken care of already, its just the MAF signal that isn't being input (and guessing replaced with the wiring for the MAP). Once this arrives I will plug in the MAP sensor and run with the MAF still in place for the intake temp reading initially. I will also look to upgrade the knock sensor to a Bosch doughnut at some point soon as well - the current engine is stock and will be swapped out, will probably retard the ignition slightly before firing the car up but I think I am almost there for first start! One of the things I am looking forward to is the closed loop fueling using the wideband - having all sorts of issues with the Power FC and closed loop as it uses the stock O2 sensors which are narrowband so not ideal for fine tuning.

    Basemap?

    Thanks for this, I will go through your suggestions, the harness has a 3 pin MAP sensor plug attached to it so will be getting one asap, I am currently running on a PowerFC which is quite old tech compared to the Link, will connect everything up this week and pin in my Bosch 4.9 wideband sensor (via the AEM X Gauge) to the CAN pins on the connector as well.

    Basemap?

    Thank you so much, will give it a try! I figured I was almost there - I can easily swap over the crank sensor type to see if it works better, am I correct to say that I need to get a MAP sensor plugged in before I can run the car though or did you find the setting for the MAF signal?

    Basemap?

    Hi there, Sorry for the delay - missed the message! please find the files attached, one being my attempt to try and pin it to the Boomslang harness, the other being the pinout from the harness - unsure if I am able to use the MAF at all as I can't seem to find a pinout on the Boomslang for it - I have also included the OEM pins from the MR2 ECU for reference. Worth noting that the coolant temp is pinned to ANvolt3 it would seem - I can't seem to find an option to use a standard Bosch sensor in the drop down?
