Installing a Fury ECU to a 1997 VW GOLF VR6 12v Turbo . The Throttle body is a Cable operated type but with DBW Idle control. It has 2 position tracks , 1 for TPS and 1 for Idle motor position , There is also an idle switch wire that could be used. Has anyone configured a link Fury to run this type of Throttle body ? Can it even run this TB ? I would really like to try and get it to work as the early 1.8t 20v AGU engines use the same style TB. Cheers Jim VR6 Golf 1997.pdf
I’ve had a bit of experience working with several G4+ installations now. Something I have noticed is that there are things going on within the ecu that are not documented. An example of this would be the closed loop idle control, you get a certain amount of idle valve opening when the throttle is opened and you exit idle control. I'm guessing this is some sort of dashpot function however there is no mention of it in the user documentation. For lack of a more detailed explanation, and having worked with different stand alone and OEM engine management systems over the years, empirically the G4 runs the engine very well, much better than many other other stand alone engine management systems I’ve used. Yet the user interface is fairly basic which, besides the idle valve adder that I mention, leads me to believe there are other routines besides the idle control that are not documented. This would not be new within the standalone ecu market, as the old APEXi PowerFC’s had a lot of the control routines and related calibration parameters hidden and undocumented. I guess the philosophy could be that the manufacture figures reducing the amount of accessible calibration areas will make the tuning process more straight forward, which will also result in less customer support issues/costs. I would argue that it is a disadvantage, especially to experienced tuners that this information is not documented. I think it would be reasonable to ask Link to at least document these routines even if they are not accessible or editable to the end user within PCLink. It would also be an advantage to end users/dealers who request additional features withing the G4+ ecu. - Chris
