Ford Ecoboost GDI Pump calibration

Recommended Posts

Hello. I am new here. Purchase Force GDI for my Ford Ecoboost engine. 4 cyl DI. It has 60-2 crank trigger wheel and VVT camshaft with 4 teeth. There is no trigger preset for this engine. So will it work with my ECU? I assume I need to chose multi tooth/missing. But what about cam trigger? Cam Level?

There is a very good chance this will match the Holden V6 Ecotec Series II trigger.

To be sure we would need a scope trace showing the CAM and crank signals together.

Hello. Today was a good day as finally I have calibrated my GDI pump on Ford EcoBoost engine with Link Force GDI. So I reached results from this:

To this :

The major thing that was slowing me down is that GDI pump settings in PC link isn't working in real time. (I didi try 5.6.5 and 5.6.6 firmwares). So first you need to change values then store, switch ignition off-on and then changes will be applied. But still I have some questions regardless of my results:

 

1. Max. Volume Per Lobe

Where this can not be measured, this number can be tuned in real time. Refer to GDI Pump Control Tuning.

Cant find in help file where it can be measured. 

 

2. GDI pump control (%) log parameter is always highlighted with red and valued -6% at idle and -10% at high revs. Is it a normal behaviour? 

Log file attached. Thanks for help!!

Hi Grimson,

Unfortunately I got to your log a bit too late today and all the clever people have left the building already with just me left (Christmas holidays start today for most companies in NZ).  Im lacking in GDI experience so arent going to be able to answer all of your query.

Usually is it done by measuring the pump piston diameter and stroke,  I dont know what strategy is used for "tuning" this setting without physical measurement however if that is what you are asking.

I have a few GDI logs on my PC and from what I can see this is normal.  It looks like it is a +ve number when rail pressure is below target and -ve when the rail pressure is higher than target.  You can stop it from flashing red or orange by going to the parameters screen and adjusting the "Low soft warning value" and "low hard warning value".

Adamw,

Thanks for reply. I know I need to measure GDI pump Max volume per lobe but the pump itself is a one solid construction, so there is no chance to measure it if only not to brake it. I was hope that it can be measured or set up this parameter experiment way.
