Honestly the ignition map is a dead match to the one I made out of two others who were dyno tuned and I mean a dead match, there were some minor tweaks and I tried them they seem fine but I did not see anything major right off the bat that made me say wow.

Cold Start and Enrichment tables were a little different but we live in different area's thats not to far off for those who are in different climates, elevations etc.

It works great for you thats what matters the most but with nothing to compare it too (aka before and after) seeing these changes is well... only comparable by putting them next to our own maps.

Thanks for the feed back. Before, the car did not even act like it was boosted and it would just bog down soon as you got up to about 3k.
There are still minor things with AE but that is very hard to sort out "remotely"

BTW how do your idle settings compare - I still have a little bit of idle hunting...don't know if that is a permanent Megasquirt thing.

Mine is the PnP. I think is a MS-1 ( ? )

I'm so far off the beaten path with my ms, I once about 6 months ago knew alot about the settings, etc.. now I can't remember how to burn a firmware, I wish I had someone to hold my hand, and help me learn this **** idk, I've tried lots of settings smoothed out lots of stuff to find out my problems really don't improve, I.e. jerking while cruising but the AFR's are at 15.5, wild sweeping of AFR's at 60 kpa and cruising at 70, but the map is very smooth and linear, idk I'd really like some help but I'm tired of getting the typical look at megamanual, I have and I still am not 100% confident I'm understanding what it's saying... Shoot I'd like to buy Tuner studio but I have no clue on setting it up, I'm not savvy with the back end of microsoft..... so who wants to make a couple bux? huh huh?


I've been trying to figure out how to upgrade my brain built ms-I to ms-II, I need to do lots of research

I'm happy as a pig in **** with mine right now but when the cold weather comes I know I'll have to mess with the cold start settings...

I'm going to throw out a few POA statements in the hope they either help you out right or causes someone to jump in and then that it turns helps you in some way. It does not sound like you have much to loose either way.

If your A/F is acting erratic that is the first thing you need to look into.

Do you have a good AFR table ? MLV VE analyzer will only tune/adjust based on your AFR table so it needs to be good (logical ) The paid version of T/S will make tuning easier and faster but it will not outright solve problems.

Is your wideband working correctly ? Did you do a recent free air calibration ?. Remember that if the sensor sees too much fuel it can actually read lean ( ! )

What makes you think your firmware needs to be re loaded. It is not hard but make sure you pull the igniter plug when you load it so you don't fry the coils...

At some point go to your AE wizard and raise the threshold up so that it disables your acceleration enrichment. See if that stops the A/F swings. ( ? )

Yes my afr targets are good, along with my map it's very logical as you put it, I haven't done a free air calibration in a long time, maybe it's worth a shot also I have an uego. I don't recall if that matters.. I need to fix my firmware to a newer version, megatune can't "find/see" the firmware I have loaded into the controller. Ie it's reading 29qy or something but ms is expecting blah blah.... Then it usually says this could cause table corruption, plus I'd like to bump it to ms-II, also I need to change my parellel to standalone not to mention I need a variable tps.... The list goes on lol

I don't know that much about it but doesn't the parallel set up allow you to idle with the factory ECU and the MS handle everything else ? . That sounds good unless there are draw backs to it.
