MS issue: MAP moving w/ throttle
I'm posting this on the advice of AbeFM, who looked at my datalog and decided something is amiss.
The log is at http://www.snarc.net/log-oct-2.xls
and the msq is at http://www.snarc.net/evan_hr_64.msq
Wow, you've got something bad-wrong. I don't know what yet. I It looks like you're constantly blipping the throttle. I was thinking it was all in my head, since the longest in the ENTIRE log it was on any single value other than 0 was... 3 seconds? Maybe 2. You drove for how long going "blip blipblipblip blip blip"?
On the other hand, the manifold pressure seems to follow it ... It looks WAY weird.
Then he added:
Something is odd, though, why does the MAP line bounce with the throttle. That makes it look real. I'm thinking the thottle might be loose? Or, shoot, I don't know. The fact that the two move together....
A hose or the crankcase breather could make the MAP fluctuate, but not the TPS. A bad sensor or bad ground could make the TPS look funny. But for both to move at once.. Does the car lurch? (Evan here again: yes, it does lurch.) Could you have a setting wrong so it's double using a pin? (Evan here again: Beats me! DIY built this - 3.57, parallel - and Paul installed it. All I know how to do is tune, but it's plausible that I fucked up something.) That can happen on MS-II, you tell it to turn the fans on pin8 and read the baro on pin 8 and it goes crazy whenever the fans are on .... post a thread up, this is worth it.
Suggestions anyone? I wasn't driving erratically when I datalogged.
Things felt MUCH better when I accepted the changes using this datalog and MLV's VE analyzer. Even the idle was better, despite the fact that I told VE analyzer not to change any cells below 30 MAP. The car was smoother and had more power; that msq is at http://www.snarc.net/evan_hr_65.msq
but I haven't yet logged with it. I did notice that the new VE table (using MegaTune's default RPM columns, vs. my old custom ones) has a lot more fuel in the middle cells. This was on the "normal" setting in VE analyzer. However Abe advised that I seek and fix the problem before using this new msq.
Big caveat, which I forgot to mention to poor Abe: my laptop recently died, so I got a new one, and obviously had to reinstall MT and MLV. Maybe some important underlying setting changed, for better or worse? I used the original project files (rescued by putting my old laptop's HD into a USB enclosure.)
Off to sleep now. Looking forward to seeing replies tomorrow!
