Default Oh Hell Yeah

I offically like MS....

still got some lean spikes to tune out....but man is this fun.


yellow = rpm
blue = psi
purple = coolant temp
green = intake temp
red = AFR
white = duty cycle

forgot to include the key...

I never noticed duty cycle was there before. Very cool.

Damn, you got that together quickly. It took me months to see a graph like that.

100.8 DC lol and at less than 8psi....

MS is really a no brainer these days for a turbo Miata. nothing comes close.

Datalogging is neat huh?

Mine reached 100 DC at like 150 KPA running 7 psi at the wastegate. Though mine are the little 1.8 injectors.
Still having my resets problem though can't seem to figure it out.
So in other words i'm jealous of your quick success. Though congratulations.

Has someone recommended RPM based enrichment to you?
I read in the manual that it was only for high strung motors. Not sure if that includes ours. Might be able to solve those lean spikes with a little EGO correction and the correct VE Target table. Have you messed with that much?

My VE table seems dead on....MLV doesn't make any corrections to it based on my targets....

Brian said that rpm based cured the spikes for him.

I've played with EGO but it didn't seem the have any effect on them...

Yeah when i meen VE table i meant the target table the EGO correction uses. If you set the EGO correction up right it can smooth out your cruise. It worked for me to have like Ignition events=40 step= 1 authority= 20. That's not perfect but I did have a good cruise AFR when everything was going well.
Now all is FOCKED.

Edit: Fixed the authority i was running. I went back and looked at the MSQ and appropriate datalog. I was holding a solid 14.3-15.0 bouncing AFR while cruising. Never went leaner than 15.0.

I can't wait for the Deleware dyno-day on the 12th to see some MS installs in person. I'm almost sold on it over EMB.

i was sold on EMB when i saw Tom's, Phil's and Bruce's AFR, but for what you get with the MS it's a no brainer.

How fortunate you are to live near someone who knows whats up. I say something about megasquirt here and people get a weird look on their face and turn away slowly.

If i had known DIY was so close to Atlanta I would have gone and picked my stuff up when i was down there last time.

There is supposedly an excellent MS tuner north of Atlanta. I don't remember his name, but his day job is at the Subie stealership. I've heard quite a few people mention him and his work.

Nice, Braineack, did you put the MS together yourself or did you get it through Kingof-whatever?

Damn, seems like you have a whole lot less hiccups in your work than most others. Great to see you up and running on it. In a way, running MS is more simple than AFM tuning, rising pressure regulators, and tricking the stock ecu. Im looking forward to seeing your inevitable dyno results :wink: In fact, i plan on getting a dynotune session as soon as summer starts back up.
