Engine configuration

01.52

00:00 - We're going to start with the basic engine configuration which tells the ECU what engine it is controlling.
00:07 We can start here by clicking on the config page in the top left of the screen.
00:11 This will take us to the configuration page or alternatively we can do this directly from the tuning page by using the pop out menu and selecting configuration.
00:21 The advantage of using the config page is that it is set up with a help browser that explains options as you go.
00:28 For this example, we're going to set up a Mitsubishi 4G63 engine in an Evo 8.
00:33 First we need to set up the number of cylinders or rotors.
00:37 So in this case, we will enter four.
00:40 Next we have the engine type.
00:42 Here we can select four stroke, two stroke or rotary.
00:45 We're going to set the engine type to four stroke.
00:49 The custom TDC option is only needed if you're tuning an odd fire engine with the regularly spaced firing intervals.
00:55 So we can leave this off for most applications.
00:59 Next we have the data stream. mode and initial baud rate that can be set if we're communicating to an external device via serial.
01:06 We have the option to select the standard barometric pressure sensor or a marine sensor.
01:13 Memo text can be used to enter a short note about the map.
01:17 Perhaps the car or a customer's name or the fuel type could be put here.
01:21 VIN allows a VIN number to be entered which is used if the OBDII function is enabled.
01:28 Next we're going to set the firing order for the engine.
01:31 We can do this by double clicking on the firing order table setting.
01:34 The firing order for a 4G63 is 1342 so we can enter this.
01:40 This setting tells the ECU which injector and coil to operate in which order.
