Discussion and questions related to the course Road Tuning

I liked the road tuning course. What interested me orginally was the ign tuning, I was hoping there maybe a way to find MBT but I figured it wasn't so. Even so after going though the course I found a few things helpful for future tuning on the road. I do both dyno and road tuning.

The only issue I saw that I might suggest would be for the intial setup, on map based load it should reference atmo pressure when the vehicle is key on engine off. Not all areas will see around 100kpa~ baro, depending on how far up you are may see a lower atmo pressure, hence a lower value. Someone new may get confused when they see 90kpa and are expecting 100kpa and don't realize that.

Any thoughts of adding in some type of tests or quiz's to the courses?

Thanks for your feedback. Yes unfortunately there is no accurate way of achieving MBT for the ignition tuning on the road. That being said, as discussed in the course, if you are on pump gas then in most instances you will actually find the engine is knock limited anyway and hence the knock limit defines your limit on the ignition timing. Of course everything changes on E85 or a quality race gas.

Your point on the MAP reading is valid. If you live at altitude then the reading may be lower as you point out. Thanks for bringing this up.

We intend to revisit most of the courses over the coming year and make some adjustments as well as adding some additional content. A quiz or test is definitely on our list.

Hi andre!
i just bought The road tuning course and in The ignition part you mention that you were going to subscrive or list The best ignition timing that you had noticed for turbo and n/a engines to start with so to speak. Where can i find it?
Best regards

Hi Leo, it is likely that this attachment has been an over sight during the switch to our new platform. I'll let Ben know and hopefully he will be able to fix this soon.

Thanks for bringing it to our attention

Hi andre
First thanks for the quick response!
I was just wundering if maybe you could post this equation here on pdf? both turbo and non turbo
Best regards

Sorry, the suggested ignition timing tables are only available for those that have purchased the course, hence they are only available from within the course body.

I have bought the course, when will you have it up under the movies?

Once you have purchased a course, it is available for viewing immediately under 'My Dashboard' and then 'My Courses'. Let me know if it is not visible there and I'll get Ben to look into it.

I ment this,

Leo, you should email Ben and ask for the file (Ignition Map Examples) directly.
This would be the fastest way to get it ;)

Hi Leo, sorry for the confusion. I thought this had already been dealt with. I've asked Ben to sort this out asap. Apologies for the delay.

Hi Leo,

Sorry for this mix up. The file has now been uploaded. You can see it under the video here: https://www.hpacademy.com/courses/road-tuning/ignition-table-configuration/

Let me know how you get on.

Thanks for your patience.

Hi im have problem downloading the ignition map examples

I was able to download and view the file fine. might be a local issue to you.

problem fix all good

Glad you got it sorted @Eddy. Let me know if you have any other problems.

Cheers.

thank you so much for the update ! to both Andre and Ben! :)

Had my car on a megasquirt but now its being controlled by FreeEMS until I find me a ecu that I want.
I have to say I do like the course, even if you are using different ecu's its still pretty much the same concept for SD tuning. I think it would be nice to see possibily a MAF version later on. I believe the info and layout is well worth it for the money from someone that has tuned or messed with EFI.
