  1. If the switch is disabled then the vehicle runs when its disconnected. I learnt that when I disconnected it due to causing throttle opening on cruising speeds, so I had to disable it so I could still drive the car. Was very annoying driving as if your stalling up everywhere you stopped
  2. That is a possibility. Will obviously need wiring extended to relocate also.
  3. Yea I’m pretty confident in that the boost sensor is faulty as I am getting a boost pressure sensor correlation fault code since replacing the sensor with a pat version. reason I am wondering about the need for the sensor is that if it’s only useful for closed loop boost control, which mine is already tuned for, I would like to eliminate the sensor so that I can eliminate the throttle body elbow and blow off valve port and just have a silicone 90 deg bend from throttle body to intercooler pipe instead of the factory plastic pipe.
  4. Ok. My car is tuned in open loop anyways so it should be all ok to disable then without causing other issues with drivability?
  5. what is the purpose of the boost pressure sensor in the intercooler pipe? pre throttle body (fg falcon on the 90 deg bend just at the throttle body) im getting intermittent boost surge under load (not reaching boost target) as well as intermittent boost spiking (overshooting to 25psi, commanding 18psi) since fitting an aftermarket boost pressure sensor when the original one failed. there is a scaler to disable the boost pressure sensor if need be, but just wanted to check how important this sensor is as the manifold already has a map sensor
  6. in regards to this, if we change the values to say 1 in all instances, would that mean that the cylinder cut would be quite short?
  7. Just to update, if you modify the idle spark tables (normally have values of 60deg) it will change the idle spark value. Say if you set it to 10 deg, it will command 10 deg and adjust throttle to keep it at 10 deg idle spark
  8. on the topic of timing maps, what is better. i already have my high load borderline knock timing pretty good, but regarding blk lambda correction, would it be better to leave it 0 or reapply the lambda correction table, and adjust the borderline knock table (as in minus at given load and commanded lambda the relevant spark adder) to suit, so that the spark will be optimised for the lamda correction values? or is it a 6 to one half dozen to the other situation?
  9. that is true. would love a dyno and endless hours, id be on it everyday to steady state tune if i could. but surely someone has done it or at least done a haltech and transferred over the data from that as you could steady state tune quite quickly
  10. mainly this part of the map that i am trying to fine tune. as you can see if i were to work with the factory map for my vehicle, thats quite aggressive compared to the other 2, by far. the other 2 maps are a lot less aggressive but also have larger turbos, which i would have thought less heat, less chance of detonation, and more chance of advancing timing closer to mbt
  11. I'm just trying to fine tune the transition parts of the map. Wot load and timing seems pretty happy with no if not much knock retard (less than 1deg)
  12. Cheers for that. My current setup is a pte6235, so slightly bigger then the f6 and sprint file. Currently is around the 400rwkw mark. Peak load around 2.2, but steady around 2.1 load Also having said that, all spark adders and modifiers between all 3 maps are the same. Hence my confusion why such a drastic difference between all 3 BLK maps.
  13. ive been looking at the stock spark maps for an fg xr6 turbo, f6 and sprint. ive reinterpolated all axis for the spark tables so that i can compare them, but im a bit confused as to the reasoning behind why ford have done what they have done... as you can see, the xr6t has a far more aggressive spark map, compared to the f6, and the sprint is even more sedate in terms of spark calibration. now when trying to build from a map and modify, which spark map is a better platform to work with? does the lower spark in some lower load cells help turbo spool as seen in the f6 and sprint?
  14. In regards to the sprint MBT tables, reason for asking whether being able to use them or stick with the stock ones is that the sprint uses the same engine as the xr6t, but with the f6 turbo, so essentially if running a turbo similar size to that of a gt3582 with the same compression ratio of the engine, would it be more accurate?
  15. Cheers. I've had a read through those threads. They are a good read.
