    Default creating calc_pids

    Hey all,

    I`ve been trying to create 3 different calc_pids using version 7.5. I`m using the calc. VE tuning tutorial info and am trying to make the three it says to create. "LTFT AVERAGE" "LTFT BEN" AND THE "CALC VE TABLE" For the life of me I can`t seem to figure it out. I put it in exactly as it says and it never comes up in the scan tool. I always close the scan tool before I try to make any. I`d appreciate any help.

    Thanks!!

    Make sure you're editing the correct text file, I had one in the installation folder and one in another folder. Changing one did nothing, changing the other actually added my PIDs. I think it was under Users/AppData or something like that.

    I`m under the User Configuration, I can copy and paste one from the LS1 tech forum and it shows. But any I hand enter never show.

    You're editing them in the text file outside of EFILive, right?

    Looks like you added two calc_pids.txt files together (appended one after the other, so that the sections appear twice), this does not work...

    instead you have to merge the two files together (merge each of their sections so that they appear once only).


    You said "Calc.VE" above... this has been replaced with "Calc.VET" see here: Calc-VET-correcting-MAF-and-calculating-VE-(in-single-log)

    and use the calc_pids.txt file from there (see post #1).
