  1. Hi Dolan, can you check that all the tables and scalars you are editing are all in units of psi. The desired boost table by default is in units of inches of mercury (inHg) which is about double the PSI value.
  2. The code to do the injector cut (gear fart/shift burble) is only in the FGs and it is not in the BF.
  3. Sam, I just rechecked and 11 kpa is 3.2483 like you said. Pressure differential would be 87.409 => Slope 19.424, back feeding and Offset => 1.607 Good spotting.
  4. The Enthusiast version does not have access the Custom OS features like boost by speed. Assuming the tune has not been tuner locked, you will need Professional to open the file (some editing is allowed) and Workshop version to change the Custom OS features.
  5. HACCKAC is a manual calibration. You can use the Calibration tools to download it, save it and compare it against the auto tuner. You can also import the licensing information and VID from the HACCKAB file read and flash that in to the car without using extra credits (all HACCK calibrations will be licensed as long as you import the licensing information from the vehicle). The diff ratio will need changing but at least you will see it fixes the issues.
  6. My understanding is the BF loom has the wires for the manual like the clutch switch. You will need to check the clutch switch is plugged in. Also if the car still has the auto loom then you will need to ensure the CAN wire that goes though the ZF has been connected. Have a look at this post for the wiring requirements:
  7. clutch input is not in the FG auto loom, you need a manual loom to get that working or you can leave the auto calibration in and change the tune. see:
  8. Conversions can be difficult. A few questions: Do you know if this car has a manual writing loom replacing the auto loom? Does the cruise control work? Do you know why the person doing the conversion stuck with an automatic calibration but did not fix auF2193? Personally I would never turn the torque module switch off (auF0260) , this will cause all sorts of issues and may be something to do with the throttle hang. Datalogging the Clutch Flag, Brake Flag, Neutral and reverse switches and see if they work will be a great help as well.
  9. With version 1.23 we will move the remaining "rapier transmission" parameters out of the development section and put them into the "ZF 6HP PCM Parameters":
  10. @Superb I have added the extra parameters you require to the Enthusiast and Professional packages. Download the latest 1.22 from the web site and you should be able to log these now.
  11. Hi itcy, I had a car that was tuned elsewhere and it did the same thing. First point of call is to check your injectors are dialed in properly. Mine was sitting around the 270rwkw and it went to about 320rwkw on the baby turbo at 14psi.
  12. haha, I agree. Unfortunately the motor trade wrote the specifications for J2534 specifically for Windows and then developed all the software based on that specification.
  13. To clarify using bootcamp and running Windows native works fine. I did this on my Mac a few years ago. Doing anything in a VM environment was where the drivers had issues so we decided not to support it (as well as the reasons @Roland@pcmtec mentioned). Simply partition the disk and boot Windows native.
  14. License is on a user/account basis so you will need to license the file to edit and flash it using your your account. Having said that and assuming the tuner who did the original tune did not tuner lock it you can read the tune out and edit it without licensing it. The changes you make will be stored in the file and can be shared with other PCMTec users. When you want to write the updated file into the vehicle the vehicle must be licensed.
  15. Before you start on trying to find out if there is anything wrong with the calibration on a car that was working please ensure the Brake Switch and Clutch switches are working properly. It is quite common that they fail and the cruise control will not operate if either of these switches is on.
  16. Bosch Green 42 lb injectors work well on the scaled factory turbo injector data. Just scale it up so the high slope is around 48lb/hr. I have already posted up injector data that works reasonably well for the Siemens Deka 60s:
  17. It is on the list for a future release. And the DTC reading is on the list to be fixed as well.
  18. Hi Will, quick question are you using the latest beta 1.21 release available from your downloads page: https://pcmtec.com/downloads
  19. Hi effxr6t, You can reduce the number of parameters shown by opening a tune and using the View Menu: For example you could un-tick Professional, Workshop and OEM Areas and there will be a reduced set of parameters to edit. You should be able to do most of your tuning with these parameters. With regard to separating the Editor and the Scanner we are looking at that as an option.
  20. Will have a look but all modules will see it as it is broadcast type message. Also seems to be the only spot where the mk2 sends the cranking flag and is in BF, FG Mk1 and mk2. Have not checked the BA yet.
  21. Last byte has two flags: 0x01 = Brake Switch On 0x04 = Cranking in Progress Byte 1: rate of change of RPM vs time [maths equivalent d(RPM)/d(t)] Byte 2: Throttle Percent Byte 3: Pedal Postition Byte 4: Hill Descent Flags Bytes 5 and 6: Engine RPM Byte 7 is a flag to clear malfunction fault codes Byte 8 as above
  22. Nigel, Can you check on the FG2 if the cranking flag in msg 12D silences the alarms?
  23. Some Alarms like low oil pressure, seat belt warning and the lovely locking of the doors if the customer has that set up MK2 FGs do not have message 200
  24. msg 0x200 details (FG Falcon only): Bytes 1 & 2 : (Actual Wheel Torque in N-M / Wheel torque to Engine torque) + 512.0 Bytes 3 & 4: (Minimum Wheel Torque in N-M / Wheel torque to Engine torque) + 512.0 Bytes 5 & 6: (Maximum Wheel Torque in N-M / Wheel torque to Engine torque) + 512.0 Byte 7: Flags: 0x80 = Torque type is Engine Torque 0x40 = torque calculation includes losses (inertia,...) 0x20 = Catalyst protection active Bottom 2 bits are crank status. Still checking this but I believe it is: 0 =
  25. base octane is correct but I think it is US specification.
