It's easy man, follow the steps in this link, courtesy of Saboteur:

http://ozmx5.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=19

You flash it just like any other time, make sure you hit "no" when asked if you're upgrading from MSNS-e code, when prompted.

So,

- download firmware image, following instructions in link
- unplug ignitor
- flash firmware
- Re-load MSQ (JP edit)
- plug in ignitor

you'll probably notice your CLT reads a little higher, that's normal, and you may have an occasional random miss, there's a mod for that if you're affected.

Sure, id help you out.

How do you think Hustler got his megasquirt working? He called me sobbing like a little bitch because he couldnt figure out how to rebuild his firmware with new therm files.

He was confused with numbers to use for the curves, bias resistance, and then the actual dragging and dropping INC files into the src folder etc etc etc.

make sure you use the right values.

since you said yours about 25-30 off, i assume vlt too low. then use these values:

Use 2625 for CLT and 1450 for AIT for the bias.

rx7 defaults for the CLT and GM defaults for the AIT.


I'd help out, but im packing and getting ready to leave. There a few things you need to do. You'll probably need to solder a capacitor on your board too, as i never loaded hi-res before on anyone's MS.

yeah but he's not standalone, so his resistance values for CLT and AIT will be different, not 2490ohms.

Now Im really confused. Do I use those values just to fix my CLT and IAT?

Whats this capacitor for?

How do I know if I need it?

Please tell me you disconnected your ignitor when you burned it? No tach signal in MS or no tach signal on your indash tach?

Do this.
Locate a known good copy of your old msq and make sure you have it handy.
Reburn your hi-res code, then burn a different known good msq such as something easily obtainable like the mspnp msqs or even a fresh blank msq that you created in two seconds in megatune. Then reburn your good, current, tuned msq that you used to run. Sounds like you have connectivity issues or something if you keep getting all kinds of corruption like that. Did you used to get lots of resets while datalogging?

i never had any problems dataloging, or at all with the low res. what i am doing now is just starting clean. i have deleted everything MS related off the laptop. downloaded the hi-res with the megatune with it. i am modding the MSPNP map right now to atleast get me running enough to start, hopefully

RX7 defaults are in Celsius. Do I leave them Celcius?
