Default EBC data log and duty target tune help

Anybody mind letting me send them my last short data log and a copy of my boost duty target page to help me figure out why I am only making 8 psi with my EBC...

I am trying to get up into the 12-14 psi range.

Without looking at the logs/files, did you notice any difference with the ebc? As in, is it working at all to produce boost over wastegate pressure?

My BEGi kit wouldn't make the boost I wanted until I adjusted the wastegate actuator arm tighter. It was just blowing open.

Post the boost duty targets here.

I was using brains for 10 psi. I have not used the turbo without the EBC.

how to post a pic here, I have no idea. I tried copying a screen shot to a word file then attaching it, but it would not let me.

well you could set them all to zero and see if it just runs wastegate pressure or turn them up and make sure you set overboost protection???

what other settings do I need to set to make sure that the MSpnp is running the EBC?

cool, pretty sure i followed it correctly...so it should just be more adjustment on the duty target settings....or I spaced and overlooked something on the instructions...

don't bother with that page. leave it at 70 across the board. if ebc is working the duty cycle table is what you should use.

1. make sure you don't have any boost leaks
2. make sure the boost control solenoid is wired properly. with car off but key on you should be able to hear the solenoid working when you press the gas.
3. make sure the boost control solenoid is plumbed correctly. the silver fitting goes to the boost source. the other goes to the actuator.
4. make sure your boost controller parameters are correct. 19.5 Hz, 20, 49.8, 9.8, Increase boost
