Re: EEC Eater

Cardone, the company that rebuilt Ford EECs for Advance/Autozone stopped rebuilding for the GUFx era back around 2012ish. It would make sense they'd do the same for CBAZA era at some point. Although I haven't heard anybody say they can't get them from AutoZone anymore. The vast majority of the time,...

Re: fuel pump prime time

On the old GUFx strats, a hack was added to the def files to effectively let you adjust this. However it was not an official editable parameter. It was evidently hard-coded to be 1 second. However since we are modifying data in-place in tunes when using a tool like BE or TunerPro, it doesn't really ...

Re: Tuner pro rt and craj0 bin

At one point, I thought BE would let you open encrypted definitions and tunes in a view-only mode so you could confirm all the things you want are present in a def before you bought it. If that's there, then maybe you could open your tune in a pay-for def like Adam's (POPSRACING) CRAJ0. I don't reca...

Re: Tuner pro rt and craj0 bin

I'm wondering if there's a function somewhere that is wrongfully defined. The first column of functions must always include the absolute min and absolute max value that can exist as the two extreme cell values. Then you get to use the cells in between for tuning. If one of the functions has an upper...

Re: Here we go again, kamrf

On my setup, one thing I did to avoid lean tip-ins was "bake in" rich-on-tipin into my tune. What I did was purposely set things up so that LAMBSEs settled in down in the mid .90s while at idle. During cruise, the tune is setup to hit targets with LAMBSEs closer to 1.0 (preferably without KAMRFs). A...

Re: Still solving "rough" idle

Spark jumping around? I know the stock tunes did this to attempt to control hunting. But I found with my setup that hunting was actually caused by over-shooting spark at idle. So I modified my Idle Spark functions to limit how much they could jump around at idle and now my spark commanded values at ...

Re: Still solving "rough" idle

Is there any chance you advanced or retarded the cam when installing the timing kit? I could see that affecting low RPM/Load conditions like idle. Most times you might would advance a stock cam 2-4 degrees. But if it were to get retarded, this would delay closing the exhaust valves thus sucking exha...

I/O count of modern EECs

In the older GUFx stuff, the I/O offering wasn't that dense. There was only the engine and peripheral engine-related sensors and controls to keep coordinated. As a result, the header that goes to the EEC is only 3 rows of 60 pins. As more complex engine controls, transmissions, and other system inte...

Re: WB stoich, but HEGOs showing rich

Comparing your tune to mine, the only culprit I see is maybe FN320A. Put load numbers in there above 50 for the Load. Your tune has 0.

Other than that, I can't find anything else related to Closed Loop controls that's enough different than mine to explain you being stuck in OL.

Re: What can cause off idle stumble/bog.

It sounds like the Accel/Transient enrichment isn't setup rich enough. It could be too rich, but that's not usually the case. To know for sure, look at your HEGOs, or better yet your WB if you have one, and see if the AFRs are going lean during the bog. If they are, that's the problem. Start searchi...

With all the delays associated with CL and the voltage checks, I set my minimum switch count to 1 (EGOCL1). With my setup, I enter CL after 30 seconds of runtime even cold.

Re: WB stoich, but HEGOs showing rich

HEGOs cold? I thought when HEGOs were cold, they read lean, not rich. He's saying his HEGOs are reporting rich. So my thinking is the HEGOs are working just fine, even the 30 year old ones were. More importantly to me is why is the engine not going into Closed Loop (CL). Transitioning into CL and at...

It probably would be a good idea for Clint to default the CH1 to AFR since that's what 99% of people are going to want.

Re: GUFB/A3M1 decel fuel leanout - running log

You've got to be pretty deep in the lean before you actually start getting misfires. When I run lean-cruise MFA, I often run in the 1.05-1.10 range however I've seen it well into the 1.16 range (lambda values). But I don't start noticing the obvious loss of power from misfires until the mix gets up ...
