I would set both the MAF High Freqency Fail 1 {C2901} and the MAF High Freqency Fail Limit {C2902} to "1". This insures that it drops into SD at the 1st failure. FWIW.

Hey Bink, I don't have a {C2902} on my OS. Mine is {C2903} MAF High Frequency Fail Limit. Just a FYI for others if they are using a custom OS. Or if you are like me, just unlug it until you want to re-calibrate it. Much simpler.

85 mm MAF. My IAT is in the MAF :( .

FWIW -> After 2 years Open Loop-MAF I'm playing with SD-Open Loop. WOW, this is very impressive. My FJO WB reports at 30fps - it's much more stable SD. Huge improvement.

Mr. Bink - I too have an 85mm MAF on my TA. However, you have some options. If you look on the side of the MAF, there is a very basic pin-out diagram. If you are so inclined, you can use a sewing needle and a pair of needle nose pliers to remove the 3 wires associated with the MAF. This way, your MAF is unplugged and you still have your IAT. If you go this route, remember to put a nice thick coat of tape over the exposed ends.

Another other option would be to pull the wire loom back a bit, and cut the 3 wires to the MAF. I personally wouldn't do this to my car, but, it would work.

In my case, my stock set up had a seperate MAF and IAT. I left my IAT in the stock location, in the air lid, and only hooked up the 3 wires for the MAF. I had a feeling I might need to unplug that thing in the future. And the future is now.

does this document apply to 98's as well?

i was under the impression on a 98 we have to dial in the secondary ve table first and derive the primary from it.

is this not correct?

Black02SS
July 26th, 2005, 05:47 PM
If you are tuning a 98' you would need to set up two different maps IMO. One for the primary and one for secondary. Adjust both at the same time as this will get you where you need to be after you enable the MAF(if you chose to).


PS. How are you tuning a 98'?

To answer your first question, yes. Autotuning is a concept/series of steps.

I have not seen a tune from a '98 so I cannot answer anything too specific about tuning them. You may have to improvise a bit to fit this document to your needs.

If you dont have the flashscan cable you will have to use your AC pressure switch to log AFR. If the AFR data isnt integrated into your logs you will have quite a task on your hands synching it up

Uplugging the MAF is the only way to 100% sure get into SD mode. Whether or not you want to remove the MAF is totaly up to you. If you are planning on running SD all the time, why leave the MAF in line? It does restrict airflow.


You should be able to leave it in line, and plugged in. Just set '{C2901} MAF High Frequency Fail 1' to a value of 0.

On most cars, you can simply set the fail frequency to 0 to force closed loop. Some cars, mine included, didn't work like that. I had to actually unplug the MAF to get into SD.

I installed my PLX M-300 this weekend (here are some preliminary notes including a wiring diagram (http://www.xse.com/leres/ss/wideband.html)). My car seems happy using the narrowband output so I took a crack at Autotune today. I drove around for about 20 minutes and ended up with the following map:

http://www.xse.com/leres/scratch/at1-sm.GIF (http://www.xse.com/leres/scratch/at1.GIF)

Most of what's in the document seems reasonable to me except for one part. When creating the autotune config, we scale all of the VE entries (both primary and backup in my case) by 15%. Then later we scale them using the average results of the filtered maps. I believe this will undo the 15% for the cells we had good data for but doesn't it leave all the other cells ~15% too high? I would think that you would want to populate all of the "empty" cells with 0.85 so that after we scale the VE tables, cells we didn't collect enough data for are unchanged. An alternate way to do it would be to divide all off the cells by 0.85 and then scale the stock VE tables.

I must be missing something obvious; maybe I should be asking why scale the VE tables by 15%? Is it because we're running open loop and are going to be off and want to insure we're too rich instead of too lean?

One other point, we don't need to worry about zero'ing the LTFTs because that happens as a side effect of flashing the calibration, right?

Tordne

The first map image I posted is hosed, some how. Applying the TPS/ECT filter is ok but when I "hide empty cells" where a cell is considered empty if the count is less than 50 results in averages that are much less than the minimum for that cell. Anyway, here's the map using the same data if I don't hide empty cells:

http://www.xse.com/leres/scratch/at2-sm.GIF (http://www.xse.com/leres/scratch/at2.GIF)

Hopefully it's obvious to someone else what I'm doing wrong...

Tordne
July 31st, 2005, 06:58 PM
There was a bug in a particular version (don't recall which off hand) that basically has a mathematical error in the hidden cell portion of the MAPs.

From memory it hides 'n' cells (set as the number of cells to hide) from all cells still displayed. Then it does the average over the correct cell count and therefore the value is lower than you would expect.

The issue is definitely resolved in the latest pre-release version, but I'm not sure which versions have been made publicly available.

From what I gather the 7.2.3 version is due out any time now.

correct. there are some cell's you are never going to hit, like 105 kPa 8000 rpm, or 15 kPa 400 RPM). The value's in these cells can safely be off by 15%.



One other point, we don't need to worry about zero'ing the LTFTs because that happens as a side effect of flashing the calibration, right?

Trims are reset when you reflash, and you are in open loop during most of this autotuning predure.

Should work fine. If all you have are a few bolt on's, lid, headers, you can probably get away with not scaling your VE table up. To be safe, I would scale it up at least 5% to make sure you don't run too lean.


Do you leave the Maf unpluged?
Only if you intend to stay in SD


I have the things needed to do this but don't know if it's for me.

Save a copy of your original tune, as stated in the write up, and if you find it's not for you, you can always flash the original tune back in.

Depending the atmospheric conditions you will find you go +/- over time , if its only a small amount dont stress.

Did you do your ben factors with the same AFR's you are currently running , I found if you did it with a flat 13:1 everywhere it was not quite right when going back to 14.63 , also you may find your factory O2's are not dead on the same 14.63 as your wideband I know mine isnt , there is about a 0.5 afr difference - they are old o2's though.

Having a bit of a problem applying this. I copied my original tune and changed all the prescribed parameters and tables as outlined in the step-by-step. Triple checked all the settings to be sure, saved it and uploaded it to the PCM. Removed power from the ignition one minute. Also, I set the PIDs as instructed in the scan tool. I did not unplug the MAF connector since I had read several posts here and on LS1tech on disabling C2901 MAF High Frequency Fail by setting it to 0.

When I started the car (stone cold), it ran very poorly - idle was suddenly low and stumbling, the engine barely running. The PCM was throwing reduced engine power and TC/AH codes and a few others. I shut it off quickly. I uploaded my original tune and the car returned to it's normal smooth operation with no codes whatsoever.

This is on an '02 Corvette M6 with the following mods:

* S2 H/C * VaraRam * FLP Headers * Ti Catback *
* DTE 4.10 * Harland Sharp * RollMaster * QTP Cutouts *
* ASP UD Pulley * FMS 30 lb. inj. *

I'm running ver. 7.2.2 with a PLX WB. My original tune was a somewhat questionable tune by the tuner I bought my h/c from along with a local dyno tune. Car runs fine normally although I'm a bit rich at the moment.

Is it possible my MAF was still enabled and conflicting with the open loop changes? I'm trying to avoid modifying my MAF connector just to retain my IAT.

Insights?

SSpdDmon
August 3rd, 2005, 07:57 AM
Did you start with a stock tune or the tune a tuner did? Chances are, to get yourself going you'll need to find a stock tune and do the whole 60%, 80%, 90% to the VE table to get up and running. If you have different injectors, you'll need to change the IFR table as well. Then follow the directions from the step-by-step. I haven't had to do this yet, but I'm sure someone here can fill you in on which parts to scale.

TAQuickness
August 3rd, 2005, 09:00 AM
As SSpdDmon posted, you will need to get your IFR table scaled correctly before starting the SD tuning process. A lot of "pro" tuners manipulate the IFR table to try and get LTFT's in line. This method is a band aid. Before you rescale you injector table, download a stock tune for your year and copy the IFR table to the tune you plan to use. Then scale the stock IFR table to match your new injectors. You can find a lot of info on proper injector scaling on www.ls1tech.com


Being an '02 Vette, I would assume you have a 5 wire MAF (85mm). This poses a unique challenge to unplug the MAF and still have the IAT sensor input. A few post up in this thread is some information that should help with this. Unplugging the MAF is the only 100% sure way to make sure the MAF is not intefering with your tuning.

Having the car run like poop when you first get into OLSD is normal (from my experience). I had one of those "professional" tunes in my car to start with. More than likely you are running pig rich with this initial tune.

One thing that would help is for you to apply the OLSD tune, start the car and let come up to full operating temp, then log about 5 minutes worth of idle. Apply the BEN factor from idling to your tune and reflash. This should help get your idle stable and then you can start working on the rest of the tune.

Patches
August 3rd, 2005, 10:01 AM
Thanks for the suggestions.

I actually still have the stock IFR table intact as my tuner never touched that table. He only did the initial tune which was pretty close considering and the dyno tune got my WOT AFR at 12.8. I did a comparison between my table and a stock 2001 LS1 vette and a stock 2002 Z06. All cells were identical. I was going to scale the IFR table to account for the SVO injectors but they shoved me from very negative to moderately positive so I thought I could tune it the rest of the way without scaling. If I scaled them the full, say, 23% or so, I'm afraid I would go too lean again. Should I?

I installed the SVO 30 lb. injectors a while ago because the Vararam had me running dangerously lean and the IDC was spiking in the 90's at times. That brought my LTFT's into a comfortable mild-rich condition, highest + values 7 and 8. I was thinking of using the OLSD tune to get the VE table set up and then returning to CL with the MAF reconnected and then scaling the MAF. A buddy of mine has done the OLSD process several times using HPT and Excel (PITA w/ ver. 1.7). I guess I should ask him to remind me how I told him to disconnect the MAF temporarily last year. Also, he scaled his IFR table before tuning after he installed a set of 30 lb. SVO's I sold him.

I'll try your suggestions next after doing that.

Patches - reply sent to CF pm.

Here's the pm (just as easy to put it here, also)

It doesn't sound like it's falling off the MAF - i.e. it's not going into SD. Are you getting a MIL?
There is a fail limit value that was "12" with my car. Set it to "1".
Here's my post to the Autotune EFILive thread:

Quote:
I would set both the MAF High Freqency Fail 1 {C2901} and the MAF High Freqency Fail Limit {C2902} to "1". This insures that it drops into SD at the 1st failure. FWIW.

OK, thanks, Joel, there's one value I did not change - MAF High Freqency Fail Limit {C2902} to "1".

I'm not getting the MIL because of the disabled P0103, P0102 and P0103 DTC MIL Enablers are set to No MIL per the AutoTune instructions posted here.

I take it you left your MAF connector plugged in in OLSD and it was still disabled with the IAT functional???

I left the P0103 MIL on... if it's displayed you are in SD.

My MAF is still plugged in. The IAT is functional and my MAF still reports - but it is in SD. I had the "Reduced Engine Power" until I set the Fail limit to "1".

This morning I changed the MAF High Freqency Fail Limit {C2903} to 1, uploaded the tune, started the car cold and got the same very rough-running behavior and codes. The car idled at between 500-600 and bucked pretty good. This time I let it continue to run but less than 3 minutes in, it died. While it runs, the throttle has almost no response so I can't try and get the rpm's up to keep it going. I uploaded the original tune and all's well again.

Any ideas? Could it be my drilled TB? Or was the 15% VE bump too much? My idle is normally set at 925.

Regarding the autotune doc; it seems like the screen grab for "Data filters" has an extra "<empty filter item>" that could be removed. Also, the title says "TPS Moves too Fast & Low Coolant Temp" but it seems it would be more accurate to say "TPS Moves too Fast or Low Coolant Temp".

The doc says that after autotuning, LTFTs should be good (-4 to 0) for a closed loop SD tune. Would the same be true for a MAF tune?

What is the procedure for calibrating the wideband? I have a PLX M-300 which does not seem to require hardware calibration. Is there some kind of calibration I need to do with EFIlive?

(In case I haven't mentioned it before, this is all very slick!)

If you are running CL w/ MAF, then yes, you will still want your LTFT's in the -4 - 0 range



What is the procedure for calibrating the wideband? I have a PLX M-300 which does not seem to require hardware calibration. Is there some kind of calibration I need to do with EFIlive?

WB calibration is vendor specific. Nothing to calibrate on the Flashscan box that I'm aware of

Right now I am running Closed Loop SD. I am still logging my BEN and was wondering if I can still use these numbers just like I did when I was AutoTuning? Most of the numbers are around 1.0 but some are not as close probaly because I did not have enough data logged. I only logged about 3 hours of data and tried to hit every cell I could but some were hard to hit.
I was also thinking of just going to Open Loop all the time.
What does everyone think?

You can definately do this, but I'm not sure what benifiet you would see. While you are in closed loop, the PCM is trimming the fuel based on O2 sensor feed back, so your WB reading will represent the AFR after trimming.

I would think you would get a better idea of what's going on by monitoring your LTFT's.

I understand what the range I'd like my LTFTs to be; my question is if I autotune my VE tables and then go back to closed loop MAF operation, will my LTFTs change? If my goal is to bring my LTFTs into the optimal range, is changing the VE tables the answer?

If going back to MAF changes LTFTs by much, I understand the MAF table then needs to be tuned (and leave the VE table to where you just tuned it to).

Got several iterations of OLSD log/update cycles done. Not as easy as one would think even on the backroads I have the good fortune to live around. Got my BEN factor table looking pretty good although I'm sure it could use a few more iterations. Updated the original file, reverted back to CLSD and started to go for a LTFT logging drive when the skies opened up. :( Oh well, tomorrow's another day. :wink:

Had a couple of issues during the logging sessions. Once, I had apparently copied a few low-count, skewed-value BEN cells to the VE table and the car went into reduced power mode a couple minutes into the drive. A quick upload of the previous tune fixed that.

Also, I started getting a flaring start problem (2500 rpm for 3 sec.) about halfway through the process. That disappeared when I loaded my CL tune in but I'll have to see if it returns on cold starts. The idle tuning sticky mentions adjusting Base Spark in Gear and Base Spark in Park/Neutral so I'll keep that in the wings if it returns.

From my experience, you will want to get your idle dialed in before attempting to tune the VE table.

Idle is perfect after reverting back to CLSD so far. My buddy had the same experience with his C5 after SD tuning - his idle smoothed out after VE tuning as well. Go figure. I'm sure I have a good amount of tweaking left but the car is definitely running better.

After running in SDCL mode for a day, two issues persist.

1) On cold start (not hot start though) the engine races at 2500 rpm for 3 secs before settling at the correct starting idle speed.

2) I have a cruise control problem on deceleration with the clutch pressed in. As I approach a stop, I push the clutch in to brake and come to a top. The enging remains at 2200-2500 rpms until about 2-3 secs after I stop and then drops suddenly to the correct idle speed. Also, if I then rev the engine a bit while stopped, it will climb to 2200-2500 and then decay back to idle in 2-3 seconds.

These two symptoms didn't appear until I had driven for approx. 20 minutes after switching back into CL mode.

I copied my VE table to the CL MAF tune. The only difference in parameters from the CL SD version is what makes it SD - all other values are identical. The MAF version ran great although the trims were 5-13 negative. So, with the MAF enabled and using the SD VE table, the runaway start and cruise control effect disappeared and it leaned out. This is the original tune I was rich with before the SD tune.

Possibly. I adjusted the IAC table and both symptoms disappeared.

I've reenabled the MAF now and my trims have gone lean - about half as far over as they were before the SD tune. When I revert back to SDCL mode, trims and BEN table are great. Back into MAF mode again and the trims go lean on me with the BEN table holding steady. I'm thinking a MAF recal is now in order.

Correct - no visual. But they do the OBDII query and I would imagine a MAF shut off in the PCM would raise a flag on their computer. I have yet to hear from any MAFless owner in an OBDII emissions state claim to pass. I passed my normal emissions test last March but I need to know with sufficient time in case I need to pop the MAF back on and complete adequate driving cycles to satisfy the tester.

unpluggin the MAF will 100% guarantee you fall into SD mode. There have been some reports that just the tune settings alone don't always get you into SD mode.

The only thing EGR benefits is emissions.

It is better for performance and mileage to turn it off. Having the EGR on basically dilutes the incoming mixture with spent exhaust gasses making for less efficient combustion.

Of course you would only turn it off for testing purposes right. :nixweiss:

leres
December 31st, 2005, 09:15 AM
The EGR has at least one performance benefit; by lowering the combustion temperature, it helps reduce knock. So it's a good thing for part throttle acceleration and high load conditions. Also, the EGR system is only in use part of the time. For example, it is disabled during WOT.

I agree with lowering the combustion temperature, for anti knock, but EGR does this by displacing Oxygen molecules. Hence a loss in power either in part throttle or high load conditions. There are far better ways to do this other than using EGR.

So I respectfully disagree that EGR has any mileage or performance benefits. It does however do a fantastic job of building up carbon throughout your intake tract. :Throwup:

leres
January 1st, 2006, 02:11 PM
It's true that when the EGR is operation, exhaust gas displaces some O2. But all this really means is that you need a little more throttle angle let the missing O2 in so you can burn the same amount of fuel. Remember, the ECM tries to keep the A/F ratio constant. We're not at WOT so there is more throttle angle available.

This is a clever way to reduce combustion temperature which reduces knock which we all agree is a performance killer. It has no impact on mileage. It's an elegant solution.

I was wondering this also.

I also have a few other questions.
On the autoVE tuning, we are basicly getting all the cells to be 0 which will be at 14.63 AFR, correct? and what about WOT, are we suppose to hit the higher maps and get those at 14.63 also? and then do WOT tuning thru the Pe vs. RPM table after Autove is done?

ringram
January 5th, 2006, 03:40 AM
Auto tune compares commanded vs actual and the difference is your BEN value. (% error)

Which you can then multiply the actual by in order for it to match commanded. (adjustment)

Therefore at WOT you can command 12.5:1 if you like in B3647 with OS3.

However if you are runinng a stock OS you must disable PE mode as per the autotune instructions, you will see B3605 for open loop has enrichment for high MAP rates. So you should be pretty safe anyway.

Its not hugely important that you are tuning to 14.63 but what is important is that your commanded and actual values are accurately compared.

DFCO, PE and often lean cruise can make this less accurate, hence they are turned off.

WicketMike

Im hoping somebody can help with this.

If you take the 1.00 which is 14.63 and times it by the 1.13 you get 16.53 (16.58 acutally) which is what its commanding at those higher maps.

why would mine be going the wrong way? and if thats the case, i wonder if thats one of the reasons why im lean on cold starts, cuz that would be me in the 17.'s at cold idle 1.17*14.63=17.12

That is Stoich for my turbo setup. Does that help? Once you are in PE, the A/F goes by this table. If I wanted it 14.6, I'd simply set it at 14.6 but I need RICH when I go PE (WOT).

im getting my turbo installed next week and ill shoot for those numbers in the pe. but what are you doing for part throttle? are you still shotting for 14.63 at part throttle?

14.6 is what the PCM is supposed to be thrashing about and getting me.

sorry about that, I haven't changed my view to AFR from the options, I'm still using the original

I am new to efi live and trying to idle tune and set some parameters with out a wideband 02 sensor. I have read several posts but get confused as there is conflicting info. This is a 01 5.3 with flat top pistons and an asa cam with a 60e trans with a 2500 rpm stall with 36 lb bosch injectors which are 42 lbs at 58 psi. I have scaled the injectors and copied the tables from the 2000 asa Camaro tune. The truck will start and run cold but die when warming up. Also idle will surge in gear when warm. I have driven the truck a short distance. Also when starting black smoke out tail pipes. Any help be greatly appreciated

I was going to load a custom operating system and go mafless after I get the idle and thing tuned. Just trying to get it drivable so I can take it to get it tuned. It's a 5.3 with flat top pistons and an Asa cam with 36 lb Bosch injectors out of a Camaro. I've already set up the ifr tables and it runs some what but very rich and when warms up does. But driving a short distance it stays running till come to a stop

hey guys new here and need some help. i installed a vortec 5.7 into a 98 s10 along with a 0411 pcm. we have been trying to figure this out for some time. when truck first starts cold it runs very good maybe a little smoke from fuel im guessing. after it warms it starts to smoke of fuel badley. should i follow the auto tune post above or am i missing something. i am trying to run a 2002 express file for the tune. thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide. by the way i have efi for this build but am not very savy on tuning.

so went through auto tune instructions but i do not have a wideband. i did notice right side o2 reading higher voltage than left. engine runs great with throttle but terrible at idle. i messed with ve tables today lowering them which seemed to help smoke but had a hard time idling. any help is appreciated.
