  1. After the datalogger has gauges, histograms and map tracing we might look into something like that if we get more demand for it. Until now no one has asked.
  2. Spend a day scaling them in using the methods above. The deadtime is the hardest part to calculate so you have that to start with. With completely unknown data I'd estimate you'd need a few hours to get them acceptable, a day to get to 1% and perfect. Use the ID1000 data above as a base, it should have you within 20-30% trims so the motor will at least crank. OR Sell them and put in injectors that you've already scaled. Personally if I ran a workshop I would spend a week scaling 1000,1500 and 2000cc injectors until I could get them within 1% on stock fuel pressure. Then every customer that came in with something else, I'd replace their injectors with one of those 3 depending on the application. The amount of times I've seen people burn days on blocked, mismatched or unknown injectors is absolutely crazy. Just get something known and stick with it. You'll save a lot of time and money. Re-scaling injectors from scratch every time is a great way to go broke or send a lot of cars out with terrible fuel trims (and hence stall etc).
  3. Due to the amount of support required we can only offer it workshop users at this time, otherwise we will get swamped with support requests and won't be able to complete any further R&D. We do sell a discounted version of the Workshop package (or upgrade from Pro) with no extra credits to DIY users. The only other difference is we don't offer phone support with it. If you are interested in this send us an email.
  4. 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. If you would like to also change the base fuel tune whilst the engine is running for a limited period of time you can also enable this by setting auF100034 to a setting higher than 3 seconds. This could be used if you are running dual fuels and need to idle the engine for several seconds at the petrol station to purge fuel (not recommended for most use cases). You can also change the dash sweep kph and rpm. FG is x100 so 26000 = 260 kph. BA/BF 260 = 260 kph. Here is a video demonstrating how to use the live tune switching
  5. Yes but it was quite a bit of work as there are about 10 other tables you need to access. It is much simpler to just set the closed enabled/disable scalars to -1000 and then set the main cam maps. Then you can just modify the intake camshaft only. This is the same way you can get a mild ghost cam on a 5.0 which doesn't have overlap control.
  6. I thought you hold the button down for 10 seconds and it would go off. It is a separate module though which interacts directly with the ABS unit and not the PCM, you'd need to use Ford IDS to turn it off properly.
  7. Yes it is a workshop only parameter. This parameter was not available in other products so it was a selling feature when we first launched to get workshops on board.
  8. All of these scenarios are now achievable using the cruise control multi flash tune (MFT).
  9. Not sure what your question is but by default you need to set the camshaft closed enable/disable scalars to allow use of the main cam timing maps at idle.
  10. Version 1.21 brings the following new features. Datalogging! The datalogging functionality has been under rapid development the past few months with a large number of changes made (and more to come) to improve stability and add functionality. The following new features have been added to the datalogger. Right click menu. Chart Show - This enables/disables whether the scalar is shown on the main chart. Items not shown on the chart will be displayed in grey. High Priority - Use this for fast (~50ms) poll rate, up to 15 items can be high priority. Other items will be between 500ms to 3sec poll rate depending on how many are selected. Enumerated - Use this to disable/enable the text lookup field. Eg "Closed Loop" and show the actual number instead. Scalar remove - This will remove the scalar from the list entirely. Same as the "Remove" button above. Decimal adjust - This will change the number of decimal places stored. Note that when saving a file it will always save internally with the maximum number of decimal places. This is a display only feature so you do not lose resolution if the number of decimals is low. You can now save/load datalogging layouts. This file format (tlo) is currently just a simple text file which you can also edit by hand. In the future this file will contain more information. You can now remove the Legend by unticking the legend button. Trans and DLP logging will be available in the next update. Multi Tune: Multi tune wizard is now complete and you can now "load all defaults from existing file". This function lets you duplicate an existing multi tune for a different vehicle/operating system ID. This will load the flex fuel/cruise control setup identically and copy the tune/base tune tables/scalar layout identically. "Load preferred tables from existing file" will load the multi tune base/tune 2/3/4 tables and scalars from another file. This means once you have a known multi tune setup that you want to re-use on other vehicles you can simply reload it over and over again this way saving time. Multi tune scalars. 95% of scalars can now be added to different tunes in the multi tune wizard. This includes rev limits and injector slopes. You can also now add knock tables eg to desensitise the knock sensors when on e85. Improvements: Over 250+ bugs have been fixed in this release. Many performance improvements have been made. Added concurrency support so you can have multiple instances of the editor open at once and licenses will remain synced between each copy. Download: This version of the editor can be downloaded from the website here, please ensure you are logged in first. There will be a new beta version 1.22 out soon. https://www.pcmtec.com/downloads There is a fully featured free demo also available that includes access to a demo multi tune and example datalog https://www.pcmtec.com/demo
  11. FORD Acronyms booklet.pdf Fore/aft oxygen sensor control. Loads of Ford acronyms in this PDF. I found it on google. It is very old from the late 90s.
  12. We now have an extra column in the strategy list to help you determine the appropriate HAEE4 operating system. I have updated the post above describing this in detail. You can thank @Darryl@pcmtec for painstakingly comparing the different base operating systems to figure out the correct mapping there. Please note that this mapping is not perfect and there may be unknown differences, however it uses far more information than we previously did in the manual method to determine a hardware match, so you should have much better mileage.
  13. Going to go with you have a problem with the actuator. Datalog the camshaft position vs requested position (eg the position error). Also check for DTC codes relating to the VCT sensor.
  14. A simple fix would be to wire the A/C compressor into the power steering pressure switch input. Then when the compressor clicks on it will trigger the idle up that normally occurs when at full lock. If you are still running power steering with the pressure sensor you could wire the two electrically in series so if either occur you get an idle up condition. You could also drop the idle ignition timing (by increasing the idle airflow). This gives you more torque reserve when the engine starts to stall and the PCM can recover quickly using ignition timing. A combination of the above should have the car idling like factory with no stalling.
