  1. Further testing required but to disable traction control in a MK 2 FG: Set auF0410 to Disable ETC Traction Contol : And set auF2495 to 0:
  2. Will, I would check the wiring first. If it is a BF I would also check the small plug (C) on the PCM as this coming loose can cause these sorts of errors as well. Here is the workshop manual entry description of the error codes and what to do: Also check the maximum volts for the boost sensor (under Speed Density -> Scalars)
  3. Hi Milanski Here is the process to follow that will allow you to return the car to a state where the X3 will recognize the vehicle. For each tune in the X3: Write it into the Vehicle Read the vehicle (PCM and TCM) Save the file without licensing it. Now you have saved all the the tunes and can restore them in case you want to use the X3 later. Remember which was the last tune you wrote (organize it so it is the one you want to tune with PCMTec). This will be the tec file you will need to flash back into the vehicle in order for the X3 to recognize the vehicle. DO NOT EDIT this file. Backup all the tec files read and keep them is a safe place where you wont edit them. Open the tune you want to edit, license it and save it as a new file. If the X3 has not changed the OSID of the PCM in any of its tunes you will be licensed for all the tunes you read out of the vehicle (you will know this by opening each of the tunes and they will be licensed). It is not a requirement to fix the corrupt OSID to enable full editing capabilities but it will restrict you from seeing what has been altered from the stock file. Fix the Corrupt OSID for the Vehicle in the licensed file. this does not change any tuning areas but allows PCMTec to correctly identify the original calibration and what areas have been tuned when you use the Compare/History function. You can repeat the fix of the corrupted OSID for each of the files you read and that way you can see the change history for each file.
  4. This would allow the PCM to cut all cylinders if required. The PCM will decide how many injectors to cut depending on the amount of torque reduction requested from the ZF.
  5. Hi Richard, there is basically two methods for fuel cut that the PCM checks against. If the value of auf11992 is 0 or 2 it will do the cut for all injectors (cylinders). For all other values it only cuts to an even number of cylinders depending on the torque reduction required. The workshop version has a table that can be used to control this (auF12783): This basically controls the number of cylinders to cut depending on the number of injectors the PCM calculates it wants to cut. If you use the second option above then you could change this table and have it cut another number of cylinders.
  6. Fordsrule, yes that might make a difference.😉 I would gather information first and see what the Long Term Fuel trims are doing as well as a full power run to see if the commanded lambda from the Base Fuel table is close to what you are expecting. The mods may not be too far away and a simple Speed Density tuning like I outlined here: Should cover the tune quite well. If you can log LTFT, RPM, Cam Angle and then plot the graph with the same breakpoints as in the tune then you can do a quick fix for the points where the LTFT is > 4% (<0.96 or > 1.04).
  7. Fordsrule, I doubt there will be any tuning required as the Ford uses a Temperature and Manifold Absolute Pressure (T-MAP) sensor (located in the intake at an optimal position) to calculate the actual air being ingested by the engine. The cold air intake should reduce the temperature and maybe reduce restriction so that more air can get into the engine. In both cases the T-MAP sensor will detect the change and compensate accordingly. If you modified the exhaust or camshafts then you would have changed the VE of the engine and that would require changes to the Speed Density tables to reflect the VE changes.
  8. If the new turbo ZF fis from the same type of car (FG) then anyone with PCMTec Workshop Software can reset it back to the correct calibration. If the ZF is changed to a BF Mechatronics you have two options: Contact WhiteFord Tech and get them to reflash the Operating system in the TCM and reset the calibration Contact a PCMTec Workshop and we can guide them.
  9. Also of note is that one famous Melbourne tuner got his XR6 Turbo BTR turbo into the 9s at the drags (quite a long time ago).
  10. This guide shows you how to use Compare/History to apply the changes that Ford did to the BTR transmission when they used it in a I6 turbo. This guide is intended to be used to show you how to update the BTR transmission calibration when you have converted the car from NA to Turbo. The BTR calibration was used in BA in both turbo and non turbo vehicles and BF in NA form only. We have three vehicles that were factory turbocharged and used a BTR 4 speed transmission. We will be using 32YC as the base turbocharged BTR calibration and for the NA comparison A3AE. I have attached the two stock files. You can get the stock files via the "Calibration Tools -> Stock File/Calibration Merge" and then use the "Create Stock File form Catch Code or Strategy" button. First we will assume your car is a NA car (A3AE). Open the calibration and then click Compare/History, then use the "Load Compare File" button and load the BTR turbo calibration (32YC): If the Editor asks you to use Partial Load: You MUST click No. The compare view will look like: Using the tick box next to the Compare/History Navigation tab tick "Auto Parameters", "Trans (Australian Specific)", "Transmission Pressure" and Transmission Torque Reduction": And then click Apply. Next we need to ensure the torque calculation for the transmission matches the turbo calibration, select the following items: And click Apply. You may be asked the following question: Most people will click Yes as the axis have been re scaled for the turbo, you may have done this already as part of you turbo conversion. Now use Save As to save the file. This file is will have the transmission calibration updated for the turbo calibration. Further tuning of the transmission may be required if you have modified the vehicle beyond the factory turbo .A3AE BTR Edited with Turbo BTR trannsmission calibration.tec32YC BTR Turbo.tec A3AE BTR NA.tec
  11. Hi Scotty. Open loop fuel needs very good injector data as there is no compensation done by the PCM. To get a bit more information what injectors are you using and what do you have for them? It is not until you get into the larger sized injectors that you will be idling on the low slope at all (Factory injectors do not). With my car idling and the air conditioner running but not in gear my car has an AirCharge of 0.000377lb. The fuel mass required for an stoich value of 1.0 on 98 is: 0.000377/14.62 = 0.0000257 (2.575136612021858e-5) Which is just below the breakpoint for ID1000 injectors (4.0 bar rail pressure). A quick way that some tuners use to dial in the injectors like ID1000s is to start the car in Open Loop, look at the commanded lambda vs actual lambda and then scale both both slopes until they get commanded lambda matching actual lambda.
  12. The difference in the hardware may only be the turbo might have different clutch packs, the gearbox is the same ZF 26HP as far as I can determine. The calibration software can be changed with PCMTec but if it is from a 4WD Territory then it should just go in without changes.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. alfa5252 did you try these settings I sent to you: Change auF2534 to 1 to activate the auF2302. Interested in the outcome. Also, with a FG we have consistent reports that using the guide to set up forced Open Loop does not work. If that is what you are experiencing then try setting the Open Loop TPS Transition table (auF0153) to 0.0: Set the values in the red rectangle to 0.0. Doing this should force the car to be in Open Loop. Let us know how you get on.
