  1. That is correct. I'll put it differently...0.1 is a big change for these parameters. The whole scale is only 0 to 1. I should have made that clear in my other post.
  2. I wouldn't change them drastically as they make a big difference with a small change eg: 0.1 of a change can be too much. This has been my experience.

    250 crossflow is better than 308

    Just don't plug them in and bob's your uncle.
  5. I wouldn't bother changing anything that doesn't immediately need it as it will just complicate and confuse. It only needs a tune good enough to get to the dyno. This means injector scaling and tmap scaling. The dyno shop can do the rest.
  6. That link is a parameter file and you should download it. You open PCMTec, click on "file" at the top left, then click on "Import from parameter file". The file will probably be in your downloads folder so you can just double click it and it will show (down the bottom) that you've successfully imported the file. This will probably sort out the injectors but you'll still need to sort out the 3 bar map scaling.
  7. 1. ??? 2. Same as most stuff that gets hot and cold. 3. Mebbe soak time enrichment is doing it.
  8. Try this for injector settings. I just worked it out from the ID injector spreadsheet so it may work or it may not. ID850 injector settings at 60psi base pressure. Needs to be dialled in..param
  9. Here's something to think about... If the tune is the same and the fuelling changes day to day, it points to a mechanical fault. Once a car is warmed up it should do the same thing on the dyno repeatedly.
  10. Fuel filter nearly blocked or pump on the way out could be something to look at. Have you verified that the fuel pressure rises the whole time through the rev range? Anyhow there's a couple of things to check.
  11. Yes that's on 98. I bought the Knock Monitor Pro V3 Elite straight through the website https://tunernerd.com/
  12. Ok a good result today. I got the knock detection working through the headphones as well as the Tuner Nerd software. There was no knock at all running up and down the road at 19psi and 13-14 degrees of timing. I'm glad I got it sorted so I can take better care of my engine.
  13. Cheers man. Yerp I'll get my knock ears out this weekend and make them work. They wouldn't work properly with my laptop for whatever reason, likely old etc, but I can use the missus laptop now. I've got tuner nerd with 2 sensors.
  14. Haha quoting myself here, I got the car on the dyno this afternoon with the exhaust pulled off and it looked like it showed a bit of knock in the graph at 13-14 degrees of timing and 22psi on 98 octane from ampol. It might have been fine with BP 98 and maybe not. It made 409awkw for the record. A nice car. Updooted for shiny 😁
  15. Yeah I wouldn't want to risk going further than you have already with the thinner rods. It's also the wrong weather to try and push cars on the dyno!
  16. On the dyno I got 17 degrees into my built motor at 19psi and 98 octane before it showed any detonation. There was no knock at 16 degrees however I took it down to 13-14 degrees and it went from 370awkw to 350awkw. I'll be doing some more e85 testing on the dyno soon so I'll see how much it can take before it stops making power.
  17. I've seen a stock na zf bf gearbox last in a falcon at 400rwkw+ for at least 18 months before it started to slip on the shift. It'd be fine in a much lighter car like a r31. I've swapped between vss and abs for speed source in a bf turbo tune and it made frig all difference. Take from that what you will, I ain't no expert.
  18. Mine does a similar thing with cruise control on, but not all the time. I noticed that the afr was changing outside of the usual open/closed loop parameters so I wondered if it was going in and out of open/closed loop. The open loop tps transition/rpm (auF0523) might be a thing to check if it has been adjusted. I haven't checked to see if it is my issue but it's something to look at.
  19. It's happening at 5800rpm which, without seeing the tune file, tells me it is likely starting to hit the rev limiter and closing the throttle. What do you want it to do instead?
  20. I have a different version but I could still see the parameters with only the enthusiast box checked. Does this mean that it is readable but not writable?
  21. Should be fine. You can still view the desired boost and wgdc maps with the enthusiast version, even when changed to different axis. Mine has boost by gear and I can see all that stuff with just the enthusiast option checked.
  22. This is the scalar description; Live Tune Changing (Engine Running Tune Edit) I wonder what happens if you enable it?
  23. Haha I'm glad it's sorted. It happened a number of years ago so I didn't even think to mention my experience, until Rolls brought up the faulty NB.
