Well I drove home and you weren't kidding that overcompensating in that table will just mean longer period of time before getting back to the O2s. It didn't fix the problem, but it did make it more pronounced...and after I saw what was happening on the drive home, I'm pretty confident that correctin...

I don't have a WB, so the best I can do is log my narrow bands and watch for them to go rich, wait for adaptive control to kick in & bring my LAMBSEs back down, then watch the narrows start switching again. I'd much rather it run rich for brief periods of tip-in than run lean. Fortunately the hesita...

One thing you may notice is that some parameters may not scale EXACTLY the same between TunerPro and CalEdit. They'll be close, but not quite the same. As long as close is good enough and you only tune in one or the other, not both, you should be good to go.

My setup's a little weird since I'm running an Explorer 302 in a Ranger. I would've put it in the stock location for a Mustang, but the Explorer's GT40 Cobra style intake had no provisions for it. The Explorer located the ACT in the rubber intake snorkel between the TB and the MAF. Unfortunately, I ...

You got it...both *.BIN and *.CCF files can be opened by CalEdit. But only CCFs can be saved in CalEdit. If you've never messed with TunerPro, you'll need an XDF file which is the alignment file that details the BIN for you. For those that may not know, the BIN is the binary executable that runs in ...

Now you are seeing my dilemma. That's right. KAMRFs are below 1 indicating the MAF curve overall is rich. And because the KAMRFs have stabilized in at their low values, the LAMBSE's report 14s at stabilized driving. But on light acceleration, the LAMBSE's go to 15 and 16s and the HEGOs indicate .002...

Assuming you are using a TwEECer, you can click the Ford button in CalEdit v1.3.x and read the tune that your ECM has as default (the tune that would run without a TwEECer plugged in). My assumption is it has this scalar set to 1, even if the A9L bin you've been using is set to 0. Regardless, "0" is...

My A9P and A9L both had this scalar set to 1 by default. I had to change it to 0. I wonder if your ECM was tuned without using a chip (i.e. the ECM itself was modified). Was it original in your car or one you bought off eBay or somewhere? If you weren't the original owner, I'd bet it was tuned for s...

It's labelled "Thermactor Present" on both my A9P and A9L, but that's in TunerPro. In CalEdit for the A9L, it is listed as "Thermactor Control Logic Enabled." To turn it off, I put a "0" in for a scalar value. I've replaced the A9P in my setup with an A9L since I do have a 5-speed. So far, I've noti...

Keep in mind the spark adder based on EGR is accumulative. So if you have .75 in the EGR spark adder table, that's .75 for every % of EGR. Flipping back and forth between the EGR base and EGR Spark adder, you'll notice you've got some pretty high % numbers at places around 2000 RPM and 40%. Thus, yo...
