Default 6 position boost control

6 position switch (5 x Rotary Switch Potentiometer 2pole 6POSITION 15pin | eBay)

A resistor network. (Chief Delphi - View Profile: ZZII 527)

This will give me a 0-5V input in 6 steps.

Set this up as a linear sensor in tunerstudio



Set up boost blending. Max boost in table 2, min boost in table 1.

Have 6 levels of boost control!! Wooo

Same switch can be used for launch control and traction control

Cool, but even cooler if you set the X axis to react based on Flex%, which is what I plan to do

Orrrr, you do a dual table flex blend using Blend Curve (8). And the **** based table Blend Curve (6). Then you have 6 positions of boost that also vary based on ethanol content.*



(either way you should be using Blend Curve 8 for Flex blending, because it effects all of the tables.)

*I have not tried this. And I'm not at my car to see if the MS freaks out if I set it up like this.

Ive blended boost based on E% on a Rev MS3. I was very happy with the outcome.

Yes. Blending boost tables on ethanol % is awesome.

Vlad just for you I'm going to talk yank into doing this on his car. Because he is already running flex fuel and boost control.
