  1. Here are some early screenshots showing the Datalogger version 2. This has map tracing, histograms/scatterplot and a new revamped UI. Here is an example showing a line trace over a spark multiplier map with a histogram showing min/max/avg spark values below. You can instantly create the histogram with axis pulled from a table by simply highlighting a section of the log and clicking add map trace. Here is a screenshot of the new UI which will show min/max/avg on the left hand side of the selected area. There is also a new scroll bar which shows the rpm trace making it easy to fin

  2. It will be a 2 part course, one for engine tuning one for ZF tuning. It will be produced in a document form that you can view within the editor (still working out the details) and eventually there will be an in person course run that can be attended in VIC. It will be run by Dave Symons at DSR Performance. Initially the in person training it will be offered to workshops however they will most likely offer it to DIY once the first. The documentation will most likely be something you can purchase or comes included depending on the package, we are still working out the details. The trai

  3. As part of our custom operating system we have several features available which can be selected as part of the 5 credit "Standard Custom OS". One of these features is the "Speed Density via Map Sensor" which replaces the intake camshaft Y-Axis on the speed density tables with map pressure. For cars with locked camshafts this converts the speed density system to a traditional style VE table which allows for non linear airflow characteristics which are typical with large camshafts. For the layman this means you can easily fudge the fueling at low map pressures where you may be exp

  5. For our internal QA we have built a simple canbus dash emulator. As the Mk2 FG uses a canbus dash this means we can emulate the cruise control buttons via canbus to do an end to end test of the multi tune system. This program doesn't use any of our source code and instead uses an open source J2534 library https://github.com/BrianHumlicek/J2534-Sharp We are also using a free version of the Arction WPF Gauge library so this program can be freely distributed. https://www.arction.com/free-gauges/ Here is a video of the emulator in action. This might be useful for anyone w

  6. Sorry i hadn't seen this early. Having a dyno graph to go along with a tune is pretty handy. So first off, fueling. I can see you're using a combination of injector scaling and base fuel tables to "fudge" the AFRs to your desired 11.5. Nothing wrong with this if you've found something thats worked now. I recommend using the injectors slopes and deadtimes if you can get/find them. You have 1250CC injectors. If they are the Bosch 1250cc injectors they run at about 1370cc / min @ 400 kPa / 4 Bar in our cars. These are about 120lb injectors, your high slope is equivalent of ~300lb.

Alarm banners Digital/analog guages Histograms/Scatterplots (that auto populate the axis from tables) Map tracing Time estimates are basically impossible for us to give as there are just so many unknowns with software development. I'm hoping towards the end of the year we would have the above complete but that's a guess at best, it could be sooner or later.

  10. recently did a track day and people were commenting on another barras decel pop, so i asked the guy and he said his tuner set 10deg on decel. i had a quick play with mine and for the video had the higher rpm set to -2 I could notice it at 10, at -2 it was verry noticable...i ended up leaving it at 6 and it was fine for me....this was straight thro exhaust and e85. after reading the antilag thread i might try and give the 2-3k range bulk fuel and max spark clip to see it it helps spool the turbo, might be a while before i see the track again for testing tho.

  11. It is becoming increasingly common for customers to convert NA Falcons to Turbo. When the entire drive train and all modules are swapped this is relatively easy, the problem occurs when customers add a turbo to an NA engine swapping the PCM only, leaving the NA ABS module. Previously the advice was to source a turbo ABS module from the same vehicle, or attempt to reprogram it with Ford IDS which is fairly tricky. Recently there have been updates to Forscan which allow editing the ABS module as built data. As such you can change a non turbo ABS module to a turbo ABS module. One c

  13. Hi KyleBruh, go straight professional, well worth it with the rich features of creating stock tunes and compare feature. 1st thing I would be looking at is comparing F6 tune with xr6 turbo tune to gain an understanding of the factory calibrations that are applied. The tutorials and support are worth considering also. I started with the application being enthusiast and went professional within weeks.

  20. With all due respect, HAER1UB is a junk tune. Any tuner who's had a good look at this calibration will see it for the crap it is. The ZF transmission calibration looks like it's been slapped together with the limited funding Ford had for development. Stick with HAEK4PE if your car is an auto, it's a much better calibration.

  21. If you are regularly tuning vehicles that have similar mods you may find yourself constantly re-using the same or very similar injector/spark/speed density tables (or many others). To speed this process up you can utilise the file compare feature and also parameter files. First we will show how to use the compare feature and what the various options do. Compare Window Step 1 is to open a file for a vehicle you are tuning. Step 2 click Compare/History If the file that is open is already tuned you will be greeted with a list of parameters that you have modifie

  24. Yeah so as he says WinOLS is really beyond 95% (or more) of tuners. Generating definitions from scratch is extremely time consuming. For example there are 165 operating systems from 2002 to 2016 in the Ford Falcon. Each of these has to be defined separately. We have written our own decompiler that pattern matches several calibration that we have defined by hand against all of the others, this makes the process much faster, but you still have to write the decompiler. There is probably 2 years full time work that went into just that one part of the software. Basically this job gets harder e

  25. I thank you sir. I've actually not tried the functionality in the new versions assuming this was still disabled/not functioning as desired. I've just retested and compared files and data and they are as expected. I cant express enough how much better this is for me Thanks for taking the time.

  26. I haven't changed anything other than what i've previously screenshotted. This seem to be the key with post ignition fuelling when cold. I've lengthened the delay as you and roland have mentioned an pretty much eliminated the first stumble after start up. Switching to closed loop must lean it out too much compared to the cold fuel table. Doesn't mean i'm getting commanded but its not leaning out to the point of stumbling/missing. I'll keep plugging away but is much better.

  27. Thanks for this @finnigan001 you can see this is where good old experimentation wins. These are the numbers I used in my BF with E85, starts first go at 5c° (as cold as it gets here). This is with ID1000s with 1-2% trims. With injectors with a poorer spray pattern you might need to go richer, same with if your injector slopes are out. If it gets below 0°C it will need further tweaking as I could never test it that cold. I also modified the following auF2325 cranking airflow auF0180 Cranking Lambda auF0411 cranking throttle angle auF0178 lost fu

  28. the turbo has a smaller flapper for controlling boost, which is fine with a restrictive exhaust - however if you fit a higher flowing exhaust the boost is going to spike and increase as the std turbo cant release enough gas quickly enough. for reference i had a Ba Na motor with the turbo gear attached -so yeah higher compression... but with the 3inch straight through exhaust and connections straight to the std wastegate actuator (4.5psi) the car was easily hitting 8 psi of boost before we backed off (it was trying to go higher but we also ran outa fuel) lots of different ways

  30. Oh right, you've done a full FGX conversion. Why not just buy an FGX? 😆 Anyway yes those are Mk2 configurations however you need the exact config for that car. The workshop edition has a full strategy list of all ~900 calibrations, from that list you can figure out which diff ratio/gearbox is suitable. Otherwise the simplest method is assuming all the parts came from the same donor car (I hope so or you are in for a world of pain) is to simply use the calibration from that car as well (check the door tag). Have to remember that ALL modules must match and be from the exact same car fo

  31. There is a new 1.22 beta on the website. This is almost finished our QA process and will become the 1.22 final release in the next week or so. So far there are a few quirks left however no breaking bugs that we have found. Once we finish QA we will do a short write up of the new features and improvements. In short we have added the following: ZF Datalogging (templates need a lot of work still, everything is mapped however the units and descriptions are still unknown for a large percentage of items).

  32. While this works for the Turbo models, the shift burble isn't activated in the NA calibration (Territory). auF12216, auF10971, auF1338, auF10020, auF11419, auF11779, auF10533, auF11392, auF11857, auF11992 These are the parameters changed from stock to enable torque truncation and fuel cut during gearshift for my NA Territory calibration. I believe you cant just apply a turbo calibration to a NA calibration as the PCM hardware is different. The NA PCM does not have an allowance for the wastegate solenoid. I'm running an Eboost Street to control boost. I cant utilise the boost by gear

  33. Problem fixed. Ive reverted back to the stock HAEM1AF calibration and from there applied changes necessary for the engine and transmission. Copying the engine and transmission development parameters caused issues with the calibration. The Territory is now behaving like a stock Territory, albeit with a turbo engine. The gearshift burble from the FG turbo is functioning as well. I've found the parameter which enables this feature.

  34. The reason sometimes you see cars with poor results from a workshop is the shop is under pressure to get a job done in a few hours on the dyno. If the car has no issues and is using the same injectors and parts they have previously dialled in you can get a great result in a few hours. If you have DIYd half the parts and the shop runs into trouble with faults, or for example you are using injectors they have never tuned before they might spend half the tuning time just dialing them in. Then to get it really nice they really need the car for a week of cold starts and running at least 80-100kms o

  35. I've done similar to what Roland is suggesting (also a manual Barra GQ), I have an FG throttle, and have put the BF airflow numbers in it for idle. Has helped lots, but needs a bit more. I'm working on getting it to be better at pulling off the line - So messing with it further r.e. airflow may help more.

  36. Live switching of the tune whilst the engine is running is now possible. To do this please download the new 1.21 beta from the website. Then you need to re-create your custom operating system by re-opening the custom operating system wizard, pressing next until the end to re-save. This re applies all the custom os logic to a fresh stock file adding the new functionality. Next step is to open "Cluster Configuration parameters for Custom Operating System" Next set auF100033 to 1. This will allow you to change the minor tune (2/3/4) whilst the engine is running.

  40. I'd suggest doing the gentle driving and let us know how the trans is behaving afterwards. I recently tried some different trans tuning and was getting a slight flare between shifts when driving super gently. I just went back to my previous tune and it was fine again. I might try the changes again and give it some time to adapt.

  43. I just set up my techedge and it was straight forward. 0V = 9 afr and 5V = 19 afr. With the equation, I literally put a 9 and a 19 in the first and second cells respectively in the right column and it was done. It will interpolate between the first 2 vertical cells so there is no need to use the entire column.

  44. A few people have asked how to remove the throttle limit on the 5.0L supercharged vehicles. A good way to start with these kind of problems is to compare the FPV or Sprint calibrations to a stock calibration. Eg a FPV 351 auto calibration is HAFJ1K2 and a standard 5.0L auto calibration is HAFH5HB Here you can see the following tables have been tuned by Ford. Desired throttle angle (auF0077) increased from 419 to 579 Throttle Angle auF0083 has been increased from 60 to 80 Throttle Angle B auF0084 has been increased from 60 to 80 IPC conversion of percent accelerato

  47. I don’t believe anyone has posted any tune with that already done. You’d have to use the compare function to change over quite a bit of the tune as there’s a lot different (Almost everything to be honest as new cam profile, injectors, compression, and intake manifold) between the BA and Fg. Plus I don’t know about independent VCT in the BA PCM whether that’ll even work. Probably not?

  48. Another beautiful and useful tool for conversions is the VID editor. We will use a Differential swap as the example. If you come across a vehicle that has had a differential changed from 2.73 to 3.73, here are the parameters that will need to be changed to ensure the transmission operates correctly and speedo accuracy. The speedometer can be over 20kmh out when changing the differential ratio if these parameters are not changed. First you will need to change AUF0394 to the correct ratio. Second is within the VID Block Editing itself, here you will find the Axle Ratio. This

  49. Do you find yourself resorting to excel spreadsheets or using lots of educated guesswork when re-scaling axes? Now you don't have to with our automatic axis re-scale wizard which will re-interpolate tables for you. This is extremely useful for changing the resolution of various tables (such as spark). By using this wizard you no longer have to manually reinterpolate spark tables. For example we will show the stock BF XR6T spark table below. Now lets say we want to get more resolution in the upper loads and less in the lower loads. First step is to modify the load axi
