Heey good afternoon all,

Any updates with this? Was anyone able to revert back to the previous FW version and restore the car to the way it was?

I'm gonna go out and finish up my last min items and go out for a drive

Cheers,
Prospero

Alright, flashed back to the previous FW version and I now have my AFR gauge working.

Off to test drive!

Cheers,
Prospero

I'm pretty sure either something is fuxorzed with the new firmware or some settings changed disabling the wbo2 that we were not told about.

I'm back on the old firmware til this is figured out, since it works
fine.

No thanks, I'll be running the old firmware when I go dyno tuning this Friday
I'll try it eventually.

I'll try it tonight... still have all my tuning to do since my motor still stumbles under harsh acceleration. Gonna go and get a new fuel filter since mine has 60k miles on it...

Seems that there should be no reason for the stumble other than weak pressure or volume of fuel? Also gonna install the "cooler" plugs today as well.

Cheers,

When it stumbles, do you see it go full rich on your WB? Will it still stumble if you slowly roll on the throttle or just when you hit it?

Fuel filter issues at 60k seems unlikely unless you put mud in your tank.

I'd bet it's still the enrichments need tuning. DLL can do great images of the displayed logs.

Haven't tried it yet! Anyone else notice they put an output up based on battery voltage? I'm tempted to get a new alternator just to see if it works good enough. This could be the full standalone break through that some people have been wanting.

I have had it stumble and in some cases I see 10.0 AFR on WB and other times it is 13ish. If I go 1/4 throttle on a warm day... she will just stumble; like a machine gun almost. Now if I go 1/4 throttle and let the car stumble, I can back off just a touch and she will react fine; nice and rich. Sad part is, I see this at 2500 to all the way up the tach!

Since the car is on jacks today.. I will change the fuel filter as a sanity measure. My volvo was very particular with the fuel filter and did the same thing. Stephanie at BEGi had also told me of an instance such as this before on a customer car.

My next plan is to play with the asynch... tried it before and that is how I suspected there was a bad injector. Sure enough it was replaced under warranty... likely the drop to the floor did it no good. Installed all my new parts over the weekend and then got sick... have not had a chance to do anything with the car since. Worse part is that I am leaving to Belarus tomorrow night and will be gone for a couple of weeks. :(

Really itching for a boosted run before I go overseas!!!

DLL?

I have been saving logs into excel; but don't know of a better way. I'm still a virgin at this!

oops, my bad. not DLL. MLV. mega log viewer.
MegaLogViewer

save as CSV and open in that. be happy.

then you can view the logs and pull down the file menu and save as image.

Travis: I wouldn't bother with a non PID "linear" responding alternator control. Do they have another way to do it?

Actually I got an email this morning telling me that was not its intended function. I like the parallel installs, but I guess having parallel isn't as cool as going "lone wolf"

They said they were working on implementing it for alternator control.

*** The TC-4 addition is this firmware allows the logging of 4 EGT's, and the coupling of the WBO2 onto that. So its an all in one serial port based solution to the EGT and WBO2 monitoring.

OK well I might be trying the new firmware after all just so I can get a TC-4 and log an EGT probe. Anyone tried the new new firmware yet?
