    I'm sorry for the delay...yesterday morning I was grinding and the grinder kicked back and my right thumb/forefinger pretty deep. I was in the middle of redoing my fuse box wiring so can't run the engine now. Hopefully I'll have it ready to run by Fri and will get back to you.

    You may have to Validate Pids.

    Also, instead of E38.AFRATIO_DMA, try SAE.LAMBDA, and if it works use this.

    Well I know I've been away with health issues and fixing radiator/intake issues.
    I just ran the engine and the record failed, this is what I got. I don't know what's going on.

    I got rid of the error $31 by selecting "supported PID's". Then connected to the e38 (green button) and validated PID's. It worked. Ive got a headache!!
    Here is the 1st and 2nd logs of your question.
    Sorry about being so flaky...I am new to this and I've never flashed an ecm either. So that's the next hurdle.

    Great! For both of those logs, if you open them up and go to the Data tab, you'll see values for pretty much everything you have selected. You have a lot of PIDs selected that probably won't be much use to you, such as all your analog input voltages and intake manifold tuning valve. Although if you have something connected that is providing an analog voltage then definitely keep it.

    So you're getting the information, now you need to decide how you want to view it. Generally, viewing the information in charts is helpful, viewing the information in gauges is cool looking. If you click on the Dashboard tab, then click on "B," you can start to setup your charts. Open up that PDF I linked earlier in this thread, go to page 49 and start reading through the dashboards and charts. Each chart can display up to 4 PIDs, I like to have 5 or 6 charts so I can see just about everything on one screen. Play with that a bit, and then play with the PIDs you have selected a bit more and see where that gets you.

    Sorry to hear about your grinder accident, I hope you're healing ok.


    +1 select just a few pids and see how it goes (SAE.LAMBDA, SAE.MAF, SAE.MAP, SAE.LONGFT1/2, SAE.RPM, SAE.IAT, SAE.ECT, SAE.SPARKADV).

    First do Info->Validate Pids.

    Thanks you, I really do appreciate this help.
    I am going for a density since I am using a Y-Pipe cold air intake.
    The docs I am finding are from 2007/2008 and are hard to follow because of the software updates not matching what they say.
    This what I get to go mafless: swap values for C0301/C0302 to turn off MAF; C0303 & C0305 Set to “10”; P0101, P0102 and P0103 Set all to “No MIL”

    Yep that should be right. Make sure you have an IAT plugged in though. I assume you got that from the tutorial shown here: https://forum.efilive.com/showthread...VE-Setup-Guide

    Keep in mind the E38 is from that 2007/2008 time period, so everything you read from back then will still be relevant. Different operating systems (OS) for different cars/years will always have some variation. Tables might be named differently, you may have additional tables, or may not have tables that other people have.

    Definitely keep playing with the software. Click on things and see what they do, hover over things for a description of what happens. If you're looking at your tune in the tune tool, when you double click a table, on the far right near the top there will be a tab labeled "User Notes." Use those, make notes in tables as you make changes so you have something to reference in your own way of thinking down the road.
