    Holding revs

    Now just found today that I have a faulty petrol injector grrrr.
  3. Hi everyone. You might be seeing this error in the logs on startup the last few days. The editor will still work correctly however it will upload your log files each time you start it as a result. If you have slow internet this may slow down the editor at startup. There is an updated 0.75 available here which resolves this issue (no other changes). Make sure you are logged in if you can't see the link: https://www.pcmtec.com/downloads

    Holding revs

    Better than my skyline, I managed to fit the wrong intake manifold gasket and not even notice that it was wrong. Took me a while to figure that one out.
  5. I had a workshop say they would do it for $375 but on sct. Another shop said if i fit an exhaust in their shop they would do it for free. Im really sceptical as how do i know its the genuine tune. They coukd just flash my file in and i wouldnt know any different

    Cheers guys given me plenty to start with

    Or just someone who doesn't forget to put the plenum lid seal in. Lol.
  9. Personally I'd run it open loop if you want to get the idle better. Otherwise the overlap will induce a false lean reading which will eventually peg the LTFT at +25 and spit fuel out the pipe. Make sure you retune the overlap SD adder tables at high overlap as well to help the PCM have a better starting point.

    Ghost cams dissapear

    Cheers Roland. I'll give it a go. I've also had a car from another shop do the same thing. So I'm keen to get it sorted

    Turboing a bf wagon (beginner Questions)

    When i changed my diff from 3.23 to 3.73 my car was hitting rev limiter on gear-change, i had to change the auto shift points. Make sure the Spark tables go above one. i believe the turbo BA goes to 1.4 load and the na .9 ....if your turboing an NA motor you might want to go to town removing spark from the map to...at least until it get professionally tuned. double check your injector setting match the ones your fitting & proberly go through he fuel map and match-up a turbo map and then add some fuel - once again until its on a dyno.

    Sometimes it is just the simple stuff! Definitely recommend a smoke machine if you work on boosted cars regularly.

    BF egas AFR

    Definitely recommend getting used to lambda readings, it makes it a lot easier to switch fuels without having to re-calculate in your head. Also worth remembering that a wideband measures oxygen, so if you run big camshafts with overlap you can read lean (due to oxygen in the exhaust) but still have fuel dripping out the exhaust pipe. So you have to use some educated guess work to know if what you are reading is actually what is going on inside the engine.
  14. Maybe fouled plugs? I would check the long term airflow and fuel trims before and after also. The computer might be getting confused with the false lean idle and making it run excessively rich. Try turning off long term fuel trims and see what happens as an experiment.

    Thanks for the reply, I did a bit of reading and that makes sense to me now. I'll switch my gauge to display lambda and see how I go. Thanks Damien

    Ghost cams dissapear

    That's weird, i'll be interested in the answer for this one

    Ghost cams dissapear

    I've had 2 cars now after doing the ghost cams and returning to stock for a long trip. Then ive tried to load the cammed file again if found it will not cam like it originally did and run like crap and stall.no alterations had been made to the files since . I've even tried starting from scratch but no luck. What am I missing . Cheers

    BF egas AFR

    Hi Damien, Widebands do not actually measure AFR they measure Lambda and then convert it to AFR for display . Generally they assume the fuel is petrol (AFR of 14.7 is lambda 1.0). Change it to Lambda and you will see it is 1.0 and then there is no confusion.

    BF egas AFR

    I have installed a wideband oxygen sensor on my egas wagon and the first thing I noticed was it was idle/cruise AFR's hover around 14.7/1. Under WOT I see low 12's - high 11s. I was under the impression that stoich for LPG was around the 15.6-15.8:1. Is this normal for a stock egas falcon? Thanks Damien

    Thanks for the help boys it was a vac leak.
  21. Hi Chris. For the swapping of the TMAP sensor you simple need to turn on turbo logic switch. If you are not swapping the loom for a turbo ensure you have the wastgate switch off. Here is the section to modify: Yes for the axle ratio change auF0394 to the correct ratio. If you have Professional there is also available in the VID Block Editing an Axle Ratio as well which can be edited.
  22. There is more to it than that. Firstly you need pro to get the file in the first place. Also you need pro to flash the ZF. Then if you merge you need workshop as there will be thousands of parameters in workshop that you won't be able to see. You could just blindly flash the entire file with pro but you may run into diff/gear ratio issues if they aren't the same. Finally if you have modules that don't match you'll be stuck with a check engine light and non functioning ABS. If this was the case you might need Ford IDS to reprogram it. Definitely recommend you pay a workshop to do this for you. This sort of stuff is a headache to do which is why I doubt anyone will touch it for under $600
  23. So what would be required if i do myself? Get the $300 package get a base GT-F file and morph with my fgx tune?
  24. Hi guys , i am in the process of turboing my bf mk2 wagon , i have a few questions if anyone could help what are the basic values that need to be copied onto my pcm what section do i have to change to fit a bosch 0281 002 514 map sensor so the pcm can read correctly , also i have changed the diff ratio from 3.23 to 3.45 do i only have to change auF0394 to 3.45? any help would be much appreciated cheers chris

    Holding revs

    Here is how I diagnose a vac leak. Log spark then pull the PCV line off the rear left of the rocker cover. You should see the idle spark drop to 0 degrees to try and get the idle speed down. If not much happens and your idle spark is already very low (eg below 10 degrees) it indicates a vac leak. Idle spark will usually clip at -2 I believe.

    I will do a another check for a vac leak monday morning when I am at the car again. Had the same issue when I put the monoblade throttle body on it and it was idle air I changed then to fix it. Just wondered if I was missing something else.

    My guess would be a vacuum leak.
