Here is some info about the car.
Body 91 - with MSPNP 90-93
Engine Stock 1.8 from a 97
Injectors flow matched stock - 254cc tan top
headers no cat, no maf
This car was originally tune by someone else with 17deg of timing NA
car will now be running a FFS cold-side M62 with the 105mm pulley - boosting at 10.5 psi - I will be using the MSPNP to control for fuel, ignition, and timing
I just want the car to run and boost safety
It is suppose to be good up to 200whp - along with their own water injection system called - ecool which injects fuel allowing to use stock injectors to achieve 200whp
"You want the 5th injector to supply about 15-20% of the total fuel"
here were some tips I got from them
Rev limit 6800
Set the AF for 11-11.5:1 throughout the entire rpm range when at full boost/power to redline. If it leans out to 12-12.5:1 below 4000rpm this is ok. Going off what the stock timing does, which is what we use with our piggyback setups, I would recommend having it at a constant timing from 4000-7000rpm. 20 deg is a starting point.
The stock ECU on my '00 runs 23-24 deg of timing from 4000-7000rpm. I find with our standard Coldside kit I run this timing (i.e. no timing retard) with the 105mm pulley. I wouldn't go any more advanced than this amount. I have tried as high as 28 deg a few years back on a Hotside with a standalone and found that it didn't increase the power any more than at 24 deg even though it didn't have knock. Thus, I think 24 deg is about as far as necessary for maximum power.... provided no detonation of course.
Similarly with the AF ratio. I used to recommend 12-12.5:1, but that was my experience on getting the most power on an Air/Air intercooled Hotside. On the Coldside, I haven't really seen much, if any, loss in power in running 11-11.5:1 and it gives you a lot more safety margin so I recommend going richer.
A constant timing from 4000-7000 rpm at 20 deg up to 24 the limit
Set timing back to 10 deg
I pulled the original maps of the car and started to play with them and this is what I got
AF targets to VE
VE map (the is the only map i did not change from what was in the car because I have no idea where to start despite reading up on it)
ORIGINAL INFO FROM THE CAR - the car is set to 17 deg
AF targets to VE
VE map (unchanged from above)
Other settings that I pulled from the car that I am confused about
I did the required fuel part and it came out differently?
Why is it set to boost control - i saw the base map and it option 1 was selected?
Why is it set to 22.5 but trigger angle is <90 - shouldn't it be at 0 - I would also have to change the Cranking advance Angle back to 10 or does this go back to 10 when I change the timing?
How do I tune the VE table to get this car safety running and boosting?
Does my map look okay?
What other things do I have to do before I start the car up and drive it around?
