MSPNP2 Tuning for the first time
1 Attachment(s)
So I've just finished installing my turbo system and have started researching exploring the features of tunerstudio. I'm trying to get the car to be able to drive around without any hiccups and then have the car fine tuned on the dyno. My question is do I just keep making small changes in my map and try to get the car running better? Or should I try to find somebody's tuned map with a similar turbo set up as me and go from there? If so where could I find these maps? Car is a 97 Miata with FM manifold and down-pipe straight 3" exhaust dumped at the diff. Garrett GT2554R, rx8 yellow (420cc) injectors. Stock FMU and pump. If someone wants look at my current tune and just give me a few pointers it would also be very helpful. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Get a wideband if you haven't already and start autotuning.

Totally agree with Stealth, you absolutely need a wideband if you don't already and start autotuning your map. It is usually a bad idea to grab some random map from someone else.

Amen to wide band.
We turned my sons 1.6L Turbo with wastegate wide opened, essentailly no boost for a month, while working on idle and Accel Enrich, we worked on getting it daily drivable using the 15.0 - 16.0 cruising cells on AFR table and letting ve analyze make the VE table changes. This all took about a month only fiddling with it on weekends, this web site and DIY Autotune's website and the megamanual were invaluable resources. we have boosted it at 15psi and holy shiite its crazy fast, we have since turned down boost to 8psi and will be making another adjustment tonight to 6psi so we can safely tune the boost cells before we hit a dyno and work on ignition cells. tons of reading, so we are probably going to be putting the car up for the winter prior to getting it on a dyno, we still need to tune for E85 and EBC in MSPNP2.

Hope this helps

Spent the last few days using VE analyze. I've had a wideband before the turbo so its been really helpful. I'll definitely checkout diyautotune's website as well as mega manual. Thanks guys!
