  1. In G4 most of the operators are shown on the pop up where you enter the value. So to add 15% you just type "+15%". To select more than one cell you shift>arrow. In G4+ selection of multiple cells is a bit easier, you can shift>arrow or click and drag or for the whole table click the top left corner. All the same operators work.

    Normalised knock

    I had a quick look over your log. I agree it definately looks like there is some mild knock in the 5000-6000rpm region on at least a couple of cylinders. The easiest test is generally to pull 5deg out of the cells around that area and if the noise levels flatten out then it is a strong suggestion it is knock. The delta threshold is getting tripped more often than it should be and in some places it looks like it is not getting tripped when it needs to be so I think the deltas still need a bit of work. Add these channels to you log will help see what is going on. I will attach some example settings from our 2.0 JDM V11 STI. Im not sure how relevent they will be but it might give you a feel for the trends. There are definately some of these settings I havent experimented with much and probably need more optimising one day but the knock control in this car works well and can be relied on as is. It is a bit erractic at around 2000RPM no matter what I do which is why I have it disabled below 2500. I only use ign trim as fuel doesnt seem to do much to supress knock in piston engines, it works well in rotaries though which is the main reason it is there as an option.

  4. You can find BMW Electrical Troubleshooting manuals for both an M50tu car and a 96-98 MS41 car, which will have detailed pinouts for the DME connector (X6000) The M52/S52 connector is slightly different than the M50. The "Hook" on the connector housing (opposite the latch) needs to be modified to clip together. I only know this because I used an M50 connector on a bench flasher for the MS41 ECU. It seems like the large and small hooks are flipped top & bottom to intentionally prevent insertion of the wrong ECU. This connector is now somewhat loose, but you may be able to clearance the hook less aggressively and have it work? For repinning, you can undo the small screw on the back of the connector, and separate the off-white translucent inside from the black housing. The off-white part is two pieces clipped together. If you raise up the 4 tabs at the corners, you should be able to separate it with some wiggling and the pins should come out. If they don't come out, you should be able to see the retaining tang on the contact that you need to depress, but I've had them fall out. You can also use an extraction tool, but the contacts are finicky and catch in a few places on the way out.

  5. I understand what you're saying. It just so happens that I tried this before seeing your message in this forum. I still felt like sharing my results despite that. I personally don't feel like it should be up to the user to have to disconnect from the ecu each time we power down the car to avoid these types of messages. I understand this may be a temporary software change to help figure out the disconnecting issue, so I'm not too worried.
