Buy new from Moates directly.

Re: Boost 89 SHO tuning help...

You need the ability to datalog so you can determine exactly what it is that needs adjusting. But the TwEECer Base isn't going to give you that. You either need to upgrade it to one that can datalog or ditch it for a Quarterhorse, BinaryEditor, and a license for your EEC's definition. My guess is th...

Re: MAF,AFR mapping in BE

Another option is to set EA to calculate MAFv from MAF. As long as the MAF curve that's in EA is the same as what your tune has, then it should calculate MAFv correctly...or at the very least, close enough.

Re: MAF,AFR mapping in BE

I actually don't have any memory of this. I remember the same as you that there is a vmaf and mafv. But the detailed differences between the two aren't coming forward as anything useful to share. My gut feeling is BE is either "translating" vmaf to mafv into the logs for backward compatibility with ...

You've got multiple problems mentioned, so I don't want to go answering each one, as each one could easily be their own thread. But the not starting when warm could be injector cranking PW. That function is based on ECT and if the pulses are too short when warm, it cranks too lean. If you upgraded i...

This can happen for a few different reasons. First make sure the def file is what matches your tune.

Assuming you've got the right strat for your tune, ...

Re: Why does my Decel/dashpot/declutch idle fall below DSDRPM

With that, it should make more sense now why the DNPPM scalar adding ISC back to the equation on transition to neutral works. It's not exactly the same, but it's effectively/practically the same as prepositioning the ISC on the transition to neutral to give the decay logic something to decay again a...

OK thanks for the ideas guys.

Re: Why does my Decel/dashpot/declutch idle fall below DSDRPM

I had this same problem because I like to activate DFSO which closes the ISC and cuts fuel. With the ISC closed, there's no DASPOT to decay. The ISC just has to open back up far enough and quick enough that it doesn't stall on declutch. However what I found that works really well is DNPPM which is a...

Re: Fuel pump prime time pid?

Just for my own understanding, what makes it a hack vs being like any other scalar that has an offset location and conversion? I'm sure it has something to do with the structure of the code. But being I'm not intimately familiar with how Ford structured the code, the nuance is lost on me.

I've never heard of a Ford TFI coil going bad before, but I'm sure they do. So try swapping it out too if you have one on hand from another TFI vehicle. That's an easy swap to test just to eliminate any doubt about it.

Keep in mind the Breakpoint is an indication of when to transition from low slope to high slope.

With the value...

It's possible there's a problem in your tune. With tables or functions misconfigured to allow over-runs of the bounds of the function or table, you can run into issues like this.
