Re: CMPB question.

The byte-length does not dictate whether something is signed or not. The interpreter of the data decides that. In the case of offsets in branching opcodes, the 1-byte offset is always assumed signed so that it can branch forward by up to 127 bytes OR backwards by up to 128 bytes. Being able to decla...

Re: Anyone have any tips for getting QH to read the stock bin with BE?

Does the QH still read your XDT2 box? I haven't tried. The version of XDT2.bin that I have is from someone else many years ago that uploaded their ROM-dump. And I don't think there is an XAD2.bin floating around yet nor have I tried to get a dump of it. I believe it'll be the most interesting as I ...

bmasencup, I edited your post below to link directly to the pictures. Its hard to tell from the pictures, but the larger SMD (surface mount) capacitor with the X on top looks like it is starting to dome, indicating it is reaching end of life.

The jump in load is sure suspicious that something has happened. Can you tell what input caused the jump? For instance, did MAF voltage also jump at the same time?

A vacuum or exhaust leak is going to make the sensor not read an accurate an signal and therefore provide an inaccurate signal to the computer. So you might want to focus on that first....

Also WRT to the 12MHz chip, is the EPIC using a 2x multiplier to run the actual 8065 at 24MHz? I can't imagine it is actually clocked at 12MHz.

Re: Lean out 5.8k rpm

I wonder if it has something to do with your definition file. There may be some setting the developer can do to NOT expose PID names in BE. Or maybe BE now supports def files that don't have the PID column, and thus if it doesn't exist in the def, the search doesn't show a checkbox for it. If that's...

You mention the MAF voltages are getting up into the 4.65v range. But what kg/hr does that correlate to? Knowing that might help others producing your power numbers what to check.

How are you determining 0% duty cycle on IAC? Test light? VOM? Some other way?

Thus you should be able to test that the IAC will open by manuall...
