    Default Went to the track today and have a log file

    I took the car out today to the strip and made a couple of passes. I am still trying a few things, but I am for the most part getting it down. I would just like someone to look at my log and maybe give me a few suggestions. I noticed on one of my logs that one of the shifts took too long to happen and caused a lean spike. I have since dropped the shift rpm by 100rpm in that area. I also noticed that I am running extremely lean. I run meth injection as well, but I obviously need to add some more fuel. I didn't get any detonation thank goodness. I drove the car to the track an hour away and drove it home. Here is the breakdown of the times and also a log and a tune file....I am open to any suggestions. Oh and I hit the 1514 code once today as well and it will be in the second log file.

    60ft: 1.583
    1/8th: 6.421
    mph: 114.68
    1/4: 9.866
    mph: 142.75

    You will see in the log file I let out of the throttle a little past the 1/8th...I will add video later when my buddy gets it to me, but if you want to know what it looks like going down the track you can look for one of the other posts I made a few weeks ago.

    I was also wondering if anyone knew how I could monitor boost while I am logging? I have a 2 bar gm map sensor hooked up. Do I need to add a PID for this or can I convert the numbers from kpa to psi? When I tried converting them it showed I was running something like 26 psi and I know my gauge only shows I run about 15-16 max. What am I missing here?

    There is a calculated pid for boost or vaccuum you can add to the list which will allow you to see boost on those logs. I am not sure who wrote this pid but it has ended up in my calc.pids txt file somewhere along the line. Thanks whoever you are .
    Complete pid file attached below.

    How exactly do I convert this txt file to use it as a PID? I saved the file but I don't know how to open it up in the scanner to use it.

    Goto the folder \My Documents\EFILive\V7.5\User Configuration

    if you want to retain the original calc_pids.txt, rename it to something like calc_pids_old.txt (it doesn't contain any pids, so it doesn't matter).

    Then copy the new calc_pids.txt file from post #4 to this same folder.

    Now when you start the scantool, the new pids appear under the PIDs tab where you can select them for logging.

    One thing to note exploder is this pid is only as accurate as the info you give it. In the txt the equation is
    CLC-00-008
    psi 0.0 15.0 .2 "(({SAE.MAP.kPa})-101.3)/101.3*14.7"
    The red amount should be your actual Barometric pressure. So if with key on engine off your map pressure is only 98 kpa you should change the equation to
    CLC-00-008
    psi 0.0 15.0 .2 "(({SAE.MAP.kPa})-98)/101.3*14.7"

    Ok I must be a total tard here...I saved the new file and a copy of the old ones where you guys said and then went out and tried to find the PID in the scanner and a I can't figure out which one it is I need exactly to log boost.
