    Default E38 help

    hey guys i have had my car tuned over 2 years ago by a shop. i have now bought efilive for myself to sharpen the tune up.

    first off the car has a l98 6L, 6sp manual with mafless tune, 1.7/8 4into1 100cell cats twin 3inch exhaust and a 220s cam.

    i feel the car is really sluggish under 3000rpm if you plant it she will take off and as soon as you hit 3000rpm it will blaze the tyres and feel twice as quick. i would expect it to be very pokey down low with a small cam but its not.

    ive drove another car with similiar mods but i bigger cam and defiantly feels stronger down low.

    i have compared a stock tune from my model to my bought one and not alot of tables have been changed

    so asking if you guys could look over the tune and see if they've missed any tables that need to be changed or dont look right would be very much appreciated.

    Oh WOW!!

    had a go at it both dyno and road and still messed up really badly...

    hope he has learnt how to tune over the last 2 years then for his customers sake

    The tuner may become (if he is not already) "pretty well known" for all the wrong reasons with that kind of tune.
    Some fairly obvious stuff there but I wouldnt like to comment until there are some logs.
    Would like to see comprehensive logging of all the usual PIDs and in particular octane scalar.

    1. Have you read through any of the tutorials? (There are some excellent resources on here)
    2. Do you have a Wideband installed?
    3. Where are you located?

    Most of the guys are really helpful... but I am not sure that they will engage in a "newbie" coaching AND a remote tuning/troubleshooting dialogue using the forum, that would be extremely time consuming for everyone involved.

    Start with these PIDs as a minimum:

    ECM.RPM,
    ECM.TP,
    ECM.VSS,
    ECM.ECT,
    ECM.IAT,
    ECM.OCTSCL_M,
    ECM.MAP,
    ECM.AFRATIO_M,
    ECM.SPARKADV,
    ECM.INVLVTMP_M,
    ECM.AIRPERSEC,
    ECM.KR,
    ECM.MAFSD,
    ECM.APCYL_M,
