This stream auto-updates     

  1. Today
  2. Yes it can. You can still use a spark hole or a rev limiter (for a manual). Obviously there is no turbo to spool so the system will be a lot simpler. In the case of the 5.0 supercharged you probably actually want it to reduce power so that you don't turn the tyres. All comes down to the use case and the goal as to what the tuner will do.
  3. @Superb I have added the extra parameters you require to the Enthusiast and Professional packages. Download the latest 1.22 from the web site and you should be able to log these now.
  4. Yesterday
  5. Hi can launch control function/tune be used for boss 5.4 and miami v8s?
  6. For those of you who want to test this out at work here are some test files. Example of 5 minutes driving.teclog
  7. Video demonstration
  8. I've been told that auF1716 (engine capacity) setting this to 80 will also disable traction control as it puts it into an error mode. That scalar is only sent via canbus and not used internally in the PCM. Make sure that ABS still works after doing this by testing the brakes somewhere safe like a gravel carpark. Try that if the suggestions by Darryl do not work as the Mk2 and Mk1 FG are quite different in terms of how they communicate via canbus.
  9. Your FUEL_PW uses different units that are seconds. Either change your log to ms, or change the scaling to suit. edit: Just looking at that scatter plot its immediately obvious that your injector offset and high slope need major changes of ~15%
  10. I don't have a vehicle with a ZF to test with but there are several scalars in the ZF that look promising. Connect to the TCM and browse through the various shift map related scalars. Here are some ones that look interesting. WT_RWK_SKNR - Actual Number of used shiftmap schaltcode - Current active shift (code) SKL_lastID - ID of used shift pattern SKL_PROG_KENN - Actually used shift pattern
  11. Last week
  12. How can shift map be logged?

    We are looking into adding some of the Workshop parameters to Pro version, so will update once that has been done (in 1.23 release coming up)

    Appreciate you checking, thanks
  15. Thanks, I have tried that before. From what I can see the range for injector pulse width goes up to 6000 in your graphs, but I can not replicate that. I using your filter (abs([ENGINE_SPEED] - [ENGINE_SPEED-4]) > ([ENGINE_SPEED] * 0.05)) Not sure what I'm doing wrong
  16. New documentation on the datalogger is available here.
  17. Introduction The data logger is build into the PCMTEC editor, and allows you to seamlessly log your vehicle, and switch between the Nagivator and Flashing windows during a logging session, and then continue logging after reflashing and restarting the vehicle. Once the Datalogger windows is opened, and the vehicle ignition turned on, the data logger will automatically connect to the Vehicle PCM: Vehicles with a ZF automatic transmission can connect also the the transmission, using the 'Trans' button External logging for recording AFRs, boost pressure or other user defined variables can be done using the DLP IO8-G Analogue/Digitial converter. This is covered in another HOWTO here Selecting Channels Use the Channels tab to select which Scalars you wish to view in the chart. Whilst the chart itself can display upto 16 channels (comrised of 4 charts, with 4 slots per chart), extra channels can be logged and saved and reviewed later on. These can be selected live whilst connected to the PCM and TCM (ZF) and are then added to the logging session. Clicking on the Scalars tab displays the currently selected items. Anything greyed out is not displayed on the chart, but can be added using the right click menu Allocating Chart Items Right click and select a Chart item to allocated TQ_ETC_SRC to Chart 4 / Slot 1 for example Otherwise use Multi Chart add to quickly add to the next available slot (if any are available) That now displays in our chart Using Scalar Delete will remove items from the chart, but they will still be recorded as part of the logging session Using Chart Remove will free up the slot on the chart, but keep logging it and displayed in the Scalar section (greyed out) Adjusting Ranges There are several methods to adjust ranges of scalars from their defaults: 1. Right click Scalar and adjust range 2. Click and use the Zoom +/- buttons 3. Hover the axis and use the mouse scroll button, and adjust by hold and move up / down 4. Otherwise click the axis and use CTRL PAGE / CTRL DOWN keys Use the PAGE UP / PAGE DOWN keys to adjust the position of the axis 5. Right click the axis and adjust the range using the window All range adjustments are saved, and can be stored in the save Layout feature Sorting Scalar items list By default all items are sorted into their 'parent' groups, matching the Channel tree. If you Right click and disable 'auto sort' you can custom configure the ordering of the 'Scalars list' Here I used CTRL UP and CTRL DOWN to move the scalar items with all temperature scalars positioned together Enumerated Items Some chart items like FUEL_SOURCE and TQ_ETC_SRC have meanings attached to the values, these are enumerated items. You can display the raw value by unticking the Enumerated tickbox Update rates Whilst there are no limitations on the number of channels you can log, on BA all channels will be 'polled'. Adding more channels will gradually reduce the update rate. On vehicles BF upwards, rapid packet reading is available for upto at least 15 DMRs and then polling available on top of this. If one of the channels you have selected requires a faster update rate, it can be forced to use rapid packet by selecting High Priority for that channel The priority tickbox (left of the Scalar name) will be enabled for those High priority items you have selected. If none are selected then at least the 15 first DMRs in the list will be used for rapid packet. Layout Load / Save Use the Save / Load / Load append layout buttons (also available from the File menu) to keep a copy of your current chart configuration, including the items ticked, their chart slot and their ranges Load append will add extra chart items to your current chart (ticked and their position if available) if they were not ticked previously. Note: Where a slot is already used, these will be ignored and not displayed Layout files are saved in the PCMTec/Logging layouts folder, and saved as TLO files Pause / Start / Clear buttons During logging you can pause the live log updates (logging will still happen in the background) and then review your current log by moving the blue cursor You can drag the cursor with the LHS mouse button and moving the mouse, or using the LEFT / RIGHT cursor keys. Holding the cursor keys will flip through the log page by page as it scrolls through the log. The legend/scalar values will update showing the current values at the cursor, even during a live logging session. Clear button will clear out the current log. If the logging is over 10 seconds then you will be prompted if you want to keep the log. Logs are auto saved in case you wish to retrieve something later, then check out the auto save folder Loading and Saving Logs Use the Save icon to save your log as a TECLOG or CSV file (for loading into other software like MegaLogViewer for example) Open the file will start in the PCMTec/Data logs folder, where your save files are located CSV files from PCMTEC as well as other Ford tuning software export CSV format, are supported by the data logger for playback mode In playback mode, you can press Start to begin playback, and pause to stop. Display Options Smoothing: is on by default and will remove some of "stair casing" of the chart data Auto range: is off by default. This will adjust the chart range based on what has been logged so far (or the range during playback). Turning on will adjust the range to fit the current screen you see: Auto scroll: will stop the chart scrolling if unticked Legend: when unticked will hide the legend window if required Adjusting units Units must be adjusted whilst the PCM is disconnected. When doing this, the charts will be auto scaled to the new units type (for example from deg F to deg C) Either adjust individually, from the Units dropdown: Or adjust everything from bulk change: Zooming The time axis can be zoomed in and out using the scroll wheel on the mouse, when hovered over the main chart. Either zoom to the Left or Right hand side of the chart, upto a maximum of 1/8 second zoom level. Using the keyboard, using UP and DOWN arrow keys will also perform similar zoom functions Full short cut keys are available with F1 or the Shortcuts icon Full short cut keys descriptions are in this HOWTO

    Just checked through these today and at this time Pro and Enthusiast have the same list of DMRs. Only Workshop contains the extra parameters
  19. Change your axis scaling so you can see the actual values.
  20. @Roland@pcmtec Im trying to recreate your graphs in megalogviewer with the DMR's I have available in the enthusiast version. I am using Fuel_PW[0[ measured in seconds as fuel_pulse_width is not available to me. Any tips you can provide?
  21. You can use the manual ABS module and set the speed input to be ABS via CAN. Otherwise a speed input on the back of the output shaft will do.
  22. I’m still bug hunting this. I believe the only way around it is re-introduction of a speed source. The BTR I understand supplied the signal where as the T5 from the vehicle I used doesn’t. I have heard the AU extension housing can be utilised and in the coming days will look further into it.
  23. Thanks for that the turbo Barras are all new to me been playing around with Cleveland’s for years but after seeing what power you can get out of these things won’t be wasting money on them anymore.
  24. It should do in almost all cases. Eg it will cut all boost on detection of overboost, it will also have knock control kick in to pull timing if it detected knock. It is very hard to kill these motors with a stock tune.
  25. Hi I’m having the same problem with my fg Do you know if this protection feature completely protects the engine against damage as I think mine might have been doing it before I purchased it as it had a 3.5 in exhaust on it when I bought it. They say exhaust with no tuning can cause this.
  26. Hi I have a fg 6Xr6t it is going into limp mode I think from overboost as the exhaust has been done and it needs a tune. Does this function completely protect the engine from damage or is there still a chance it could be damaged. Thanks
