Re: High MAF voltage at idle

Ok. Hunting, surging, or general idle instability can be caused by either fuel or spark. It sounds like you've eliminated both. So that leaves...the tune. I remember the A9L and X3Z both had some fairly aggressive spark multipliers for RPM error that were intent on controlling RPM changes. However f...

Re: High MAF voltage at idle

Like Paulie asked, what RPM are you at when the engine is about to die? But yeah 1.4v even with the smallest of stock MAFs is high for idle...particularly for an idle that's been set just above where the engine wants to stall. Initially I was thinking ~1.4v MAFv was erroneous. But then you described...

I suspect it might be something with your setup/EEC/strategy. I too have no problems writing tunes to the QH whether the ignition is ON or OFF. In fact, I've loaded tunes to the QH with it sitting in my living room and the EEC downstairs in the garage. However now that I've got the Bluetooth adapter...

Is there a technical reason you aren't using BE? I ask because I'm not familiar with all the things Decipha's done to A9L2 to make it different/better and thus what additions might be added that are not exposed or manageable with the GUFB.def file for BE. Even if there are, you could replace CalEdit...

Re: TunerPro with Tweecer

In other words, if you want to use TunerPro, you'll still have to write your tunes to the TwEECer using CalEdit and datalog using CalCon...which is a real bummer since they both suck. If you want to ditch CalEdit/CalCon with the TwEECer RT, you'll need BinaryEditor...unless TunerPro has figured out ...

Re: Speed Density on EEC-V?

I've never heard of anybody doing this, but I can't say it's never been done. Most people are eager to move from SD to MAF, not because SD is a bad control strategy. It's actually superior to MAF in some ways. It's Ford's implementation of SD that sucks. I've heard rumor that some newer-ish strats (...

Re: Why auto disassembly is tough

Ahh, the enable/disable of interrupts is being "managed" implicitly by virtue of the restoration of PSW. That makes sense now that you say it. But due to my lack of familiarity with the PSW reg, it didn't even occur to me that the Enable/Disable bit lived there.

Thanks for the clarification.

This may be a stupid question, but in that code snippet, I see that interrupts get disabled right before entering the critical section of the sub where stack manipulation is done. But I don't see an explicit re-enabling of the interrupts. Is that done implicitly by one of the other ops? Or is it sim...

2 other things to consider modifying in the tune: DNPPM to bump the ISC open when you transition from drive to neutral. and Adjustments to both DASMIN & MINMPH. DASMIN will hold the minimum DASPOT so regardless of ramp-rate, the value won't go below some value. And the MINMPH will set the RPM at whi...

Re: Valet tune?

There's a number of different things you can do to create yourself a "valet" tune. There's rev-limiting along with pulling timing or just zeroing out the MAF flow values above say 150kg/hr. Most vehicles can be driven in a parking lot with less than that reasonably. But if they attempt to, the EEC b...

That works too. And I usually prefer the adapter harness way of doing things. I just didn't have the counterpart plugs to make myself a harness at the time. But I did have wire cutters and a soldering iron so I worked with what I had at the moment.

I could be completely off in left-field here, but I think your problem is simpler than it might seem. First off, the stock HO cam is a torque cam that was designed to work with the stock HO intake/heads in non-ported form. So it's not surprising that lower RPMs are showing higher load values.
