Re: Mixing tunes between BE versions?

I opened your tune with my GUF1 and it doesn't show any problems. No red error boxes and none of the values that I looked around at seemed out of sorts. I didn't do a deep dive looking. It was literally just check the things you screencapped and take a quick glance over all the tables and see if the...

If you don't figure out what the problem is, be sure to follow up with your *.bin that's causing problems. Without that, we are just guessing at things for you to try.

Re: Mixing tunes between BE versions?

The only thing I can think that I could be of assistance with is having you post up whatever problematic tune you have for me to see if the same thing occurs for me (or anybody else willing to open it). What's odd though is you write the tune in good condition, then read it back, and things are diff...

Re: Mixing tunes between BE versions?

The tunes, themselves, should be version agnostic. The only thing that might would affect this is the encryption. If Clint, for some reason, changed the encryption method and didn't maintain backward compatibility, then that could cause a problem. However I'm not aware of that happening. But then ag...

Re: Corrupt tune

Look for an L-shaped daughter board on top of the QH main circuit board. It runs from the battery holder down to a pin on the J3 connector. There's silk-screen text on mine that says: 2032+KAM for QH1.3 If your QH has that, then it has the mod that keeps the memory up via vehicle power, not the coin...

Re: FN035 in an a F150 with an AOD.

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. As for...

Re: Nominal AFR

Ok, so Nominal_AFR is similar to GUFx's Z_AFR scalar? If that's the case, then yeah some of what I said probably doesn't apply. In GUFx, you set the Z_AFR to compensate for differences in actual AFR between different fuel being used. Prior to this setting, you change the injector slope values. But w...

Re: Nominal AFR

The answer is very similar to what's explained in this tech doc: Widebands measure lambda (λ), not AFR. Once you've read that over, see if this explanation makes sense. The tune is using lambda in the background. It's the display tool (BE in this case), that is assuming the fuel's stoich AFR to be 1...

Re: Hot engine loses idle GUFB

If I had to guess, I'd say it's AFR that's killing you, but at idle, the cam is throwing the WB's reading. Likely the WB is reading lean, but you are probably stalling with an actual over-rich condition. I would try leaning it out above, say 180 for the RPM/Load ranges of idle and see if that helps.

There was a version before 2010, then there was the 2010 version, after that 2012. And at some point, Clint got away from the "year" versioning and that's when BE got versioned as v5.x. The version I have installed right now is 5.142 as indicated in the title bar of the BE window. There's probably a...

The fact that Bank 1's HEGO will respond is an indication it isn't a sensor or wiring problem, but some other issue.

My interpretation of what you described is injectors are firing, but the plugs are not. However you seem to be jumping to the conclusion that the EEC is to blame for the cylinders not firing.

Short of a battery problem, I only know of one way that a tune can go corrupt on its own in a QH. Of the 8 tune positions, one is writable at runtime. From what I recall, it's the tune that just happens to be in the same memory block also used for datalogging. It's been a long time, but it seems lik...

I don't know that it's necessary. Where having the WB really makes a difference is tuning Open Loop conditions. During open loop, the EEC isn't trimming and adjusting fuel. It's blindly commanding what it HOPES is delivering the target amount of fuel. That's where you as the tuner come in to make su...
