    Too busy getting the major update for Custom OS/Tuner lock etc all completed. Datalogging will come out after that is done. We already have working datalogging but we won't release it to the public until it is more polished, otherwise we will be inundated with support requests for items we already know are not finished/working. We will post in here as soon as it is ready.

    This is correct!!! I originally found 10 degrees gave the best pop on decel. Then I got carried away from other posts and I failed when using 5 degree or lower. 98 octane only works around 10 degrees on decel spark. Now I just got the crackles with 10 degrees even in Park/Neutral. Wohooooooo.... so awesome. My custom exhaust has no issue whatsoever lol. It was the decel spark and torque management. I am so grateful to Richard and Gelousi and most of all Roland who always finds time to help anyone in needs. Now I am a happy man. To sum it up, for octane 98 do not go lower than 9 degrees on Decel spark table. Tip-out and Decel must be zero. You do not need to disable DFCO for FGX model, just try CFC delay extended to 3-5 secs; Every things else in Coasting Fuel Cut off just left at default. As Roland said you need hi-flow cat or CATless and hiflow pipe (mine is 4") to produce the crackles and pops. This is just my finding from my car setup FGX ZF trans. Cheers everyone

    We have a new employee who will be working on adding nice to have features into the editor. Their first task will be to build a unit converter. Currently we have the following conversions they will be adding. Please let us know any others you'd like.

    A few people have asked what to use for knock detection. Whilst the factory system works ok for a factory car on factory boost levels, it will often miss real knock and it will also detect false knock. Some recommendations below Plex https://www.plex-tuning.com/products/plex-knock-monitor/ Knock Box http://theknockbox.com.au/ Link G4 Knock block http://dealers.linkecu.com/G4PlusKnockBlock If you are poor and handy electrically you can always do the old school method of a microphone wrapped in foam inside a metal tube screwed onto something on the block, then hook this up to an amplifier (low pass filter recommended) and noise cancelling head phones.

    Exactly what i did using the one in your link. Here's the article i followed, for anyone that is interested. http://www.autospeed.com/cms/article.html?&title=DIY-Detonation-Detection-Part-2&A=0353

    My clone tactrix lasted about 4 months before it died no lights or activity. i do not recommend it

    Run more timing then. I found 10 to 12 degrees best on 98 octane

    Should hear a noticable difference when its enabled vs disabled.

    Yes that part we are probably going to put on a seperate tab with a gear/tyre size calculator as well. edit: It will suck the values out of your tune if it is open as well.

    First iteration that we will be finishing and implementing (still in development)

    If you perfect it and want to sell parameter files to others we are happy for you to do so on the forums. Same goes for ghost cam and injector data, there is a real demand for this so if we find people are interested in making and selling them we could set up a market place for this kind of thing.

    You can get it in park need to play with dfco settings it’s all in there very easy 29297484-00A1-48E2-8B7B-E13422D11053.mp4

    Issue is mainly time, if you have time to tweak and build your own setup the can turn out brilliantly. Pete L at Nistune built his own using refurbished noise cancelling comtag military headphones, was like your head was inside of the engine! Could hear knock amazingly well.

    Lol is being poor a prerequisite? I prefer to think of myself as frugal and self sufficient 😉 I bought something similar to this but not this exact one. I opened it up, desoldered the microphone and ran a couple of meters of speaker wire to a bosch donut sensor. I bolted it to the knock sensor location on the block (on a 5 litre holden) and you can hear everything very clearly. The only issue I found was when the engine noise got too loud it would crap out, presumably due to too much signal input. I haven't messed with it further but I'm sure you could fix it up with mechanical or electrical methods.

    Ok so for anyone else who wants to know what to do, this is what i did and works a treat. Calculate the difference between your current speed and actual speed. For me, my speedo was at 100, gps was at 102, so a 2% difference due to a larger tyre, ie. 275/35r19 instead of 275/30r19. In vid block scalers, find tyre size, should be 0.78 etc and minus 2% off this value. Reflash, and all good to go.

    Richard, it is the type of cylinder cut and should be in the range 0 to 1 However for the V8 Coyote and FPV turbos it uses values over 2 to use a different filter for Sport Mode if the transmission is in Shift pattern 6 or 2. Now ZF information that is communicated over the CAN bus that everyone keeps asking for, transmission shift patterns are: Shift pattern 0 - Normal mode. Shift pattern 1 - Sport mode. Shift pattern 2 - (not used). Shift pattern 3 - Hot mode. Shift pattern 4 - Gradient mode. Shift pattern 5 - Traction map. Shift pattern 6 - Manual Mode. Shift pattern 7 - Cruise map. I am still looking at trying to find how we can determine that Manual Mode is controlled by Shift Pattern 27 in the ZF Calibration.

    Here is a snippet of a response sent to someone enquiring about issues with their vehicle. The vehicle was an NA with unknown injectors and large camshafts, the user reported various drivability issues. The response covers why installing known injectors is a must and also why you should only install camshafts that a workshop has recommended or previously tuned. If not you are expecting the tuner to do weeks of work in a few hours, the result is the cars drivability will suffer.

    Yeah right now this is something that will work and only took me half a day to draw up. Can bus will take us a few weeks so its lower priority than the datalogger and the next software update.

    Correct it is used to check the efficiency of the catalytic converter. Commonly this check is already disabled as the user has modified the exhaust and catalytic converter meaning it no longer passes the efficiency tests. FYI Exhaust temperature is calculated by a lookup table of load vs rpm and then multiplied by engine coolant temperature exhaust flange temperature = (auF16613 base stead-state flange temperature * 200°F ) + auF1605 Exhaust temperature modifier for ECT * (ECT - 200°F)
