Dropped an 01 motor into my 94, did the wiring the way Andrew suggested, and have been working out the initial bugs. It'll idle, and I've had some success in getting that idle stable. It's still a little dicey at the transition off the end of the PWM Idle Duty table.
But that's not my concern right now.
After warming up to operating temp and making sure the idle cells looked good, I turned on VEAL and started making sure the zero-load cells were sane, at which point I discovered that I can't rev past ~2500rpm. Huge lean spike and it sounds like knock. Tried not to do that too often
Rather than coming crying to you all, I captured a log and looked at it myself. The only problem is, I only sort of think I understand what I should be looking for and what should be happening.
Attached is my MSQ and a log.
I see the huge lean spike, but I also see that my pulse width actually spikes there. Which makes me think: MS sees things going lean, asks for more PW, but there's no fuel, so things just continue to go lean and I get knock.
I've had trouble finding a good NA VVT starting point, so perhaps this is just a matter of being completely untuned. But I also just put this motor in and it's completely possible that I fucked up the connections at the fuel rail.
Which of my idiocies is causing this issue?
Thanks in advance!
