WinOLS Map Identification Basics

WinOLS automatically defines hundreds of tables in your ECU, so why can't you just grab them and start tuning immediately?

We've been spending a lot of time in the workshop recently, delving into the matrix that is WinOLS. Like any tuning interface, WinOLS can take a little bit to wrap your head around, and while this is a bit of a crash course into pattern recognition and scaling, we hope it gives you a bit of insight into what is involved when it comes to defining tables/maps using software like WinOLS with the end goal of performance tuning aka calibration.

While we're using a Bosch EDC 17 ECU from an Audi Q7 for this quick demonstration, the knowledge overall is not specific to this single application.

If you didn't already know, we have a podcast, it's called 'Tuned In' and we've had guests covering topics from engine building, tuning, wiring, race engineering, ECU building, driving, automotive YouTubing and much, much, MUCH more. Find it here:
