Hi just wanted someone to advise me if they think my car is safe to drive to the dyno. thats about 20 miles on the motorway so no real load. I have mad a very rough map. it does run quite well etc but want some opinions. the engine is a 4 cylinder cosworth engine running on pump fuel "supreme" 80lb injectors. t35 turbo link monsoon ecu. I also don't have any knock detection equipment. or I would tune it myself on the road.

Unless I'm missing something, your log file doesn't have data for lambda/AFR? This makes it a little hard to give you much feedback. There's nothing wrong with a basic 'rough' map to get you to the dyno but the main issue you want to watch is that the fuelling is at least in the ballpark. It doesn't need to be perfect but you don't want the engine running excessively rich or lean while you're getting to the dyno. Likewise you obviously don't want the engine knocking but providing you drive to the dyno sensibly and stay off boost, this is unlikely to be a major concern assuming your base timing is correctly calibrated.

i also noticed this his timing is jumping between 0 to 20 degrees at idle. does that have to do with his hysteresis setting? how would one fix this? just trying to expand my understanding.

Johnny, the ignition timing jumping around at idle is due to the "idle ignition" table. However, it looks like the settings in the map posted here don't quite match what the log shows, so I suspect he has changed some settings in this area after the log was taken.

I turned off the ignition idle as it was making it jump all over the place. I don't think im idle solenoid is working tho as when I make changed to it it does absolutely nothing! however if I give it 12v direct the solenoid moves all the way fine.

and it has lambda average on there. I would of liked to have had a time plot as per the ect and rpm showing the lambda thru out the run. however I cannot seem to do this. can someone tell me how ? I was watching the lambda when driving and it was sitting around .88 .90 this car seems like the fueling does like to jump around tho quite a lot. am I better off just setting a full table of ignition at sat 10 - 15 degrees to be safe ?

it seems fine when driving but I know its nowhere near tuned!

The ECU only pulses the ground to the valve, you have to supply your own +12V to the other side. Assuming it is wired correctly (not clear from your statment), then there are a couple of setting wrong in your tune. Set the max clamp to 100% (currently set to 10%). Set the aux frequency to about 150Hz.

and it has lambda average on there.

In the log attached to your original post the Lambda is showing zero at all times. This is because your Can Lambda is showing error 16 (usually caused by poor power supply).

To add a parameter to a time plot you right click on the time plot, select properties, then add parameter.

Thanks for clearing that up [email protected]

sorry guys I uploaded the wrong log file!! please see the one attached. and advise from there. thanks.
