    ECMlink Weird Idle and Cruise AFR

    I can't read your logs personally but the ecu will always try to trim the afr to 14.7 during cruise/idle/light throttle If it's not adjusting the short term ft during the rich situations it's probably not going into closed loop operation If I remember correctly coolant temp generally needs to...

    Spyder 2g Spyder Roof Repair Kit

    I'm pretty sure I got mine from JNZ tuning a long time ago, can't remember if it was aftermarket from them or a mitsu fix The original arms didn't have the cables to help pull that bow back to make sure it folds into place and if it didn't fold down it just got crushed and bent while lowering...

    2G Blackbox ecu flash port wiring questions...

    95 won't have the flash port next to the obd2 port since the ecu in 95 was not flashable, you usually add a pin and wire to the ecu harness socket which then goes to the tactrix flash port plug which has a headphone style plug, not sure of which pin number on the ecu offhand You would need to be...

    ngk and their statement on anti seize

    I can understand the issue with over torquing, hardware usually has a specific dry, oil & say moly lube torque value with dry needing the highest torque due to friction and moly being the least torque from less friction. That being said I've used anti seize over the years and really have not...

    ECUflash Upgrading injectors today latency values

    In a nutshell no it's not going to be calibrated, if it was that simple nobody would be tuning anything running a stock MAF, plug in injector data and call it a day done but it's not that simple It'll run sure with the correct injector data only but odds are the fueling is going to be off To...

    Personally I'd would be graphing with your WBO2 & AFRMap scaled the same along with MAF hz When the hesitation happens you should be able to notice it in the graph right away Note the MAFhz the hesitation, probably lean, is happening and add airflow with MAF smoothing at that point I would work...

    ECUflash Weird AFR change

    Going SD probably isn't going to fix the issue you are having, MAF's work absolutely fine and are very easy to tune/calibrate Both ways give the ecm a form of airflow estimation from which it calculates the proper amount of fuel to apply If either SD or MAF are not properly calibrated then the...

    ECUflash Weird AFR change

    Evoscan doesn't know anything about your actual tuning break points which is why your maps don't match up between ecuflash and evoscan, you have to load your tune settings into Evoscan so it displays the same break points and values The graphing function is by far better for spotting oddities in...

    ECUflash Weird AFR change

    The fuel maps are only for open loop operation, like initial startup, heavy throttle and WOT, they don't affect your cruising at all If everything is working as it should the ecm will always trim the AFR to 14.7 except for a short while after startup where it runs in open loop If you're seeing...

    Why anti-lag instead of supercharger?

    Turbos are the most flexible, can adjust hp on the fly or dial it back and are probably the most efficient overall at compressing air Centrifugal superchargers are just basically belt driven turbos and have a very linear boost curve that goes with rpm Positive displacement superchargers have...

    ECUflash Injector latency values

    With flash you will use MAF smoothing to dial in your air fuel calibration Works basically like any AFC, you alter reported airflow from the MAF and the ecu will do the calculations to apply the correct fueling for the reported airflow In closed loop the ecu is always going to use O2 feedback...

    2G Low Voltage, The Electrical Illiad

    I doubt your ECU has much to do with the alternator failing. The 2g style mitsu alternators are subpar overall and the way they ECU applies a duty cycle to the regulator to reduce alternator output to reduce engine loading is a really poor way to address engine loading. I run a galant 90amp...

    Do you have any pictures of the cross hatch pattern after you honed the cylinders?

    I haven't messed with a dsm automatic but have worked with plenty of ford and gm. If it was a ford or gm product my first guess would be the torque converter may not have engaged the transmission pump and is binding under thrust load, just what it sounds like to me.

    Proper Compression Testing

    WOT You are trying to fill the cylinder with air which will be compressed by the piston. Best way to achieve that is to eliminate the restriction create by the throttle blade and let the cylinder breath as naturally/easily as possible.

    General SUPER AFC BASIC TUNE

    The AFC is going to allow you to alter your MAF curve at different rpm break points, tuning software dials in the curve in a similar manner with quite a number of other options to more effectively tune the engine. At the end of the day the amount of airflow the ecm determines is filling the...

    2G Stock boost controller "mod"

    The factory BCS basically bleeds off some of the wastegate signal when open so you build more boost, when the BCS closes it sends full signal/pressure to the waste gate so it opens at whatever spring pressure the WG operates at.

    2G Why is this ran like so?

    The only real issue I see with using manifold pressure is the wastegate actuator will see vacuum as well as pressure. It will achieve the same basic result really, set pressure opening the wastegate from manifold pressure rather than turbo compressor housing or charge pipe. What you see on your...

    Metal gaskets >>>>

    Composite gaskets really work fine allot of times as they can conform to less than perfect surfaces better but they tend to settle, loose compression and then blow out. If using a composite style gasket it's always a good idea to check the bolt torque after some heat cycling. MLS gaskets don't...

    2G Compression test

    I'm guessing something weird is happening if all you get it 75-60 across the board with a "good/normal" running engine. Did you let it spin over long enough, it takes a couple cycles per cylinder. You'll normally see the gauge move upwards after each cylinder cycle before peaking out/stop gaining.

    ECUflash Fan Temp Controls

    Do you have a cooling issue. High Off is the temperature that High mode will stop. The engine temp is largely controlled by the coolant thermostat, if you have a lower temp thermostat you would then consider lowering the fan on/off temps. And if I'm not mistake with ECUFlash you want to make...

    How to come up with a compression ratio?

    2G Smoke during engine braking

    During downshifts/high vacuum/throttle blade closed you should be seeing higher cylinder/manifold vacuum, during which time oil and crankcase vapor can be getting drawn past the rings or intake valve seals & guides due to the high vacuum.
