haha, same here. I'm taking whatever day the supercharger kit comes, off for work, and installing everything.

Then driving 24 miles to the nearest parts store and getting a belt, then driving around with some boost and a light foot, enjoying the noises! Hopefully the c30-94 isn't super loud lol.

Oh, do you think you could edit my tables to be populated up to 196kpa? just so we have a base tune? the only changes are the supercharger, id1000s and the 255 hp wally pump. I decided not to do the return style fuel yet, or get an afpr. What tables would have to change? I want to target 12.5 AFR at wot.

My email is [email protected] if you didn't have that already.

LOL LOL LOL

"The only changes"

..

"Forced induction and completely different fuel system"


that's it? just that?




But anyways, yes I can do that, but:

BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING, we need your MS3 unit fixed, installed, and all the barometric issues squared away.

DO NOT

I repeat

DO NOT

install or change anything until that's done.

So you're keeping the current one in the car in the mean time?

We can at least get it working decent in it's current state. Scaling the maps will be easy. the injectors, on the other hand, will require tuning. extensive tuning.

I'm gonna need you to start learning how to log properly, and send me logs, and also how to use autotune. VE table will need major tweaks with ev14 injectors (id1k's)

yeah i'm keeping the current one for now.

I can log, and get a file, but i just remembered it wasn't actually saving data. I would start and stop the log, and it would change at the bottom of tuner studio, but then the file would only be like 5kb. Out of 8 logs, all done with the same procedure, only one saved data.

IIRC that was one where I wasn't moving, just an idle.

So i send you the log file via email?

I would guess we will take out fuel over the whole table first, and go from there?

yeah figure out the logging issue cause if you can't open the logs, I can't open the logs.

yeah you can send them via email, np.

you actually have to add fuel into the VE table for the bigger injectors, mostly at idle and cruising cells, after you scale REQ_Fuel and all the offsets/deadtimes and such

Why add fuel? is the chamber of the injector larger, or something? Just curious.

Because reasons

LOL I actually don't know the real reason, just that it's what we've all had to do to get them to work with megasquirt.

Remove the ini file for the CAN module and the logs should work ok. I found out that if Tunerstudio loses the connection to the module ("CAN1 went offline"), all TS logs thereafter are garbage.

that definitely makes sense, because the car was logging just fine until he asked me to load the .ini file to try to fix the freezing wideband input

the new one should already be loaded with the .ini for both your project and the CAN module

and you or I can email Reverant a copy of the tune

BOIIIIINNNG!!! OS Giken has arrived! (with the diff honey lol) will put up pictures tonight!

decided to go with the 3.63 gears... cruising over 5500rpm is no fun. I'll have plenty of power/torque for a 7% difference in final drive.
