Here's the latest file I'm running. Car runs really well with a couple of exceptions. Popping/ hesitating under full throttle and a bouncy idle. Gapped the plugs to .25, helped but didn't stop the pop completely. Too rich at WOT? Seeing low 11's on the gauge. Have it set to 12 in the AFR tables.
Biggest headache is the idle. Rich/lean/rich/lean/rich/lean....
Sometimes it's dead on idling mid 13's. Most of the time not. Warm, cold, doesn't matter. Noticed the same issue when parked if the throttle is depressed. Doesn't hold a steady rate. Same bump up and down over and over. Doesn't seem to do this when the car is moving, just in neutral.
Don't know if anything jumps out to you gugu's as being strange. Let me know what other information might be helpful!

While the car is idling I was watching the VE, AFR and timing tables. Tried to get everything to the same numbers in the cells it was using at idle. Didn't stop it. Don't know if I have some conflicting numbers somewhere or what?
Hitting the Dyno Monday. Improve the tune, solve the pop at WOT issue, see where it's at power wise and make sure my WB is accurate.
OK, this is driving me nuts. Again, 70% of the time it's bouncing around. Rich/lean/rich/lean. Does the same thing with no load and part throttle, say 2500 rpms. I've tried just about every possible combination of numbers for the IAC. Disconnecting the IAC. Adjusting the throttle plate, the fine tune screw. All the possible tables - VE, AFR, Spark - so that all the surrounding cells at idle are the same. Cold, warm, hot, doesn't matter. Moved GEGO to control down to 1000rpms, up to 2000. No effect. It'll idle perfectly stopping for one light then bounce around for the next 10 stops.
Any ideas? Could it be in the wideband? Gego on or off doesn't seem to matter. Was annoying, now it's pissing me off. rich/lean/rich/lean GAAAAH!
I have the same problem it seems. I would bet it isn't the wide band, as the problem didn't change when I had to switch wide bands from LC1 back to UEGO. Honestly I haven't even started trying to figure it out, so I am of no help at this moment, sorry.
I couldnt get a clean idle either with closed loop PWM. i just went to "warm up" which just means open loop really, nothing to do with warm up then set the cold and warm thresholds as well as the temps and it works surprisingly well. ideally i would like to get closed loop to run well but i figured i'll mess with it later.
The physical line or what you see on the screen. I tried changing where it's plugged in, from the port DIY shows to sharing the port on the very back of the manifold. No change.
What I can't figure is what is leading what. Is the map varying and setting off the other stuff. Are the Afr's driving it. Timing. The Pulse width keeps bouncing from 1.7 to 1.9 along with everything else. Again, the same rich/lean/rich/lean crap is happening when I rev to say 2500 rpms when parked. Revving like that the fuel cuts completely making the rpm swing much wider.
DIY emailed and said my VE tables might be asking for too much fuel down low. I ran megatune with just an idle log and it agreed. I'm going to try dropping the VE tables between 500 to 2500 rpms in the 20-40 kph range. Laptop just died and my charger is at home. I'll have to try this tonight.
I switched to warm up only and it does work that way. Just running off screw settings. Idle is steady but the rich/lean/rich/lean thing is still there. I'm considering it a temporary fix until I get the Map/AFR/RPM thing figured out. Thanks for the suggestion. It makes the car less anoying to drive while I figure out the problem!
