Re: Logging Intake Manifold Vacuum

On MAF-based EECs, like the GUFx EECs, the BARO sensor appears to be the same exact sensor used as a MAP sensor on Ford SD-vehicles. Or maybe they are just shaped the same and have the same connector? I don't know. Point being if you setup the tune to ALWAYS use Sealevel tables, then you can connect...

Re: Question about A9P with 5 speed

On manual cars, the EEC usually monitors both NSS on the clutch pedal and transmission neutral switch. One or the other have to indicate neutral. If you only wire to the NSS, then it is possible the trans could be in neutral, but your foot not pushing the clutch in and the result would be the EEC be...

Re: Moates QH and J3 Chips Are Still Available

It wasn't really a choice or an opportunity, it was just the hand he was dealt. AFAIK Xilinx wanted a $250G deposit on chips with a 36 month lead time and NO GUARANTEE that they would be available at the end of the 36 months and NO REFUNDS. It was a crap deal he would have been stupid to take... I ...

Re: Moates QH and J3 Chips Are Still Available

I understand Moates using the chip shortage as an opportunity to retire. But what I don't get is his unwillingness to sell the intellectual property/company to someone who is willing and capable of taking it over particularly now that the shortage is no longer a thing. And if he didn't trust any one...

Re: Aprilia RSV Mille XDF File

I didn't realize Rotax or Bombarier (both aircraft companies) OEMed Ford hardware for their purposes.

If it isn't a Ford product/derivative, the chances of any knowledge we have about Ford EECs is not going to be of much use to you.

So there's a few different problems that need to be confirmed. Here are my thoughts.

First, can you confirm your tune is executing? For example...

The hole in the throttlebody is an interesting topic and a hard one to visualize. But I'll see if I can do it justice. When you have an engine pulling a fairly strong amount of vacuum, say reving down from high RPM with the throttle plate closed. You end up with this scenario where outside air is pu...

Re: Holley 36lb injectors and Pro Flow 36lb Maf ???

I don't know what MAF you are starting with, but many of the stock MAFs made since the late 90s are sampling closer to the center of flow like slot style MAFs do. So you may not need to replace your MAF. For example, the infamous LMAF. Even the 97 Ranger and Explorer MAFs have their housing designed...

You may get away with just grabbing the injector parameters from some other brand 36lb injectors. They'll be close enough that you can tweak the values to what's actual.

I'm thinking EA may be configured to assume Closed Loop. When you don't have a WB to feedback ACTUAL AFRs, EA assumes the "target" is stoich.
