Unable to locate injector data.

Recommended Posts

So I’ve attempted this afternoon to gauge on my car and tune it for it’s setup.

So I’m be run into an issue either going to have to revert back to stock injectors and tune it for stock injectors.

as I have 440cc Bosch 42lb injectors I’ve scaled the forums top to bottom to try find data to just transfer them over to the tables or just find the general data to scale then in is it a long process something me and my mate aren’t actually too familiar with I’ve showed him some files I’ve skimmed over but he says they’re incorrect (I have attached them below as these are all I could find).
 

as I’m currently running at idle 0.7 lambda. Which is what my mate is running at WOT with an lpg block.

and another question my timing table seems out of whack as it’s running 10 deg retard in timing at idle also. Is something going on?

Hi Kyle,

 

I haven't actually fitted my 42lb injectors yet, so i don't know how accurate this scaling is.  I've just used the official bosch data you have already above and used excel to calc for base pressure.  I do see it is different(leaner) compared with CAPA data for the 42lb injectors, but that might be a mail order tune fudge factor.  obviously once installed you can drive it off boost and watch you fuel trims to get an idea of how accurate.... or even better install wideband and use real data to adjust in real time.

Anyway, Excel sheet attached.

 

Hopefully people with more experience will chime in if i've made stupid mistakes.

 

regards,

Justin

dont forget that table is at 39psi. if you have a turbo fuel regulator the fuel pressure is around 60psi.

the FG f6 uses 440cc injectors, they may not be the same injectors as the ones you have but the data might get you in the ballpark. well close enough to testing's if you took those numbers (assuming u have a turbo fuel reg).

try comparing your injector data against HAEE4V2.

 

 

0.7 is verry rich for a barra at idle, even inside the cold map. outside of the cold map the barra will use the 02 sensor lots and really try to hit 1.0...so your data is way off.

I have had a look at that but it’s a bit far out of my knowledge, bit hard for me to make sense of.

Yeah I know, it’s super rich, but can’t really seem to find any data for 440cc injectors until now to go from, all I could find was that as I attached above with the wrong base fuel pressure which I’m still yet to try the data that @jpm600has provided regarding 440cc injectors @58psi fuel pressure and yes I have been informed by a friend that I could use those as a reference just haven’t had the time to try it out.

 

It’s a factory turbo ba ute (unfortunately btr) but apparently with all of my mods I could achieve around the 400-450hp mark.

Well we all start somewhere don't we...

 

This is a simple way of looking at it;

 

Think of the slope numbers as how big the ecu thinks the injector is. For the sake of making it easy, lets assume both slopes are the same number. If you make them 100 the ecu will run an afr of 14.7 for example. It wont actually be that afr but lets just say it is.

If we make the slope number smaller, the ecu thinks the injector is smaller and will open the injector for longer which will run richer.

So there is one way of thinking about how the size of the slopes work.

The reason there are 2 slopes, hi and lo, is because the injector doesn't flow a linear amount of fuel when it is only open for a short amount of time. Lets just say it flows 1mL when it is open for 1ms. It would make sense that it would flow 2mL for 2 ms and 10mL for 10ms right? The injector doesn't actually flow like that. It is kinda wonky and the first 1ms to 2ms doesn't flow the same, so that area gets a low slope number. The reason it's called the low slope isn't because the number is smaller, it's because it is the start of the slope.

Ideally we would have just one slope number but until we have injectors that flow the same from start to finish we have to break them up (get it?!? break point?!?) so we get the right amount of fuel at idle as well as normal driving. All injectors are different which is why we have different break points to change where the slopes swap.

We have a breakpoint number which tells the ecu when to swap from the low slope to the high slope. That means when there is enough fuel demand to get past the wonky part (usually just after idle) it'll swap from the low slope number to the high slope number.

 

Here's a couple of pictures to understand the wonky part of the slope

I highly recommend checking these guys out for some paid training if you want to learn more to start following this stuff as injectors are just the start of it, it gets more complicated as you go in deeper. We will also be offering training material this year and hopefully an in person training course. This will be via DSR Performance in VIC

Sweet bro you made it a lot easier to understand.

 

I’ll reply properly when I get home anyway just been a bit busy to be able to respond to anything just reacted to let you know I’ve seen it.

Yeah I will definitely look into it, as I’d love to do all of my car myself as I’m rebuilding the engine just hit 290k on the clock still running strong for a ba, but the gearbox has now lost 3rd and 4th clutches are gone in it so it’s given me the motivation to manual swap it.

So I finally got around to actually hooking up a wideband and seeing what this data put out , AFR is at about 10.3 when items cold, around 14.1 at idle once it’s warm, with WOT coming onto boost it’s steady around 14-14.5 and peak boost it’s coming up to 15 and settling there and what should I be targeting in these areas?

15 afr on boost? Stop driving it.

Read the stock fuel table, will answer your question.

14.7 at idle / 11.8 on boost.

It’s barely been driven since March, only did a pass in it once I got the wideband hooked up. Otherwise it’s barely seen the road over the last fair few months.

had no license, so just been playing around with things until I get it back.

okay well, I've just had a look at the stock fuel table, how do I get closer to that, is that all in scaling the injectors? or am I needing to modify elsewhere also? just having trouble wrapping my head around it.

so I've finally had time, to read over what you've said and finally get back to you haha

 

so technically the the low slope needs to be decreased and the high slope needs to be increased by what results I've gotten (too rich at idle, and lean under load).

What high/low do u have now? What injectors are you using?

Which I’ve only just been able to test with a wideband as I’ve been trying to find a house to move into so had to keep the car on the back burner, idle and cruise were a bit rich, but coming into positive manifold pressure it was leaning out.

Yeah I have, but found it a bit difficult to grasp how to adjust them, more so unfamiliar with the excel spread sheets that where attached in the comments also, so it makes it a bit more difficult never really learned how to use it back at school.

Hi, this is the injector values in the capa tune for bosch green 42lb injectors.

They dont change any of the deadtime vs voltage on the capa tune and i wonder if that is the difference.  Anyway, these value should get you close.  If it's still lean under load, then how much boost? what fuel pump? what fuel pressure?

Hope it helps

Still running factory boost turbosmart actuator 5psi spring, 255 walbro, factory 4bar reg.

haven’t touched anything other then the injectors and switching it from auto to manual.

Look at your short n long term fuel.

From that rich at idle you would need to make low slope larger...or you have a leak.

I don’t believe I have a leak, as far as I’m aware, I did have a leak at the turbo to manifold but that’s been sorted for a while.

Post your LTFT plot as per the injector scaling thread. You can use the histograms in 2.1 instead of megalog viewer now.

How do I do that?

I’ll have a look and check back in again.

For anyone doing this from scratch I recommend logging the following values and loading it into mega log viewer. In this case the vehicle simple has the wrong slopes. I believe they have put slopes for a KPM 1100 injector which have a less steep low slope (reverse of say an ID1000).

  Engine speed
  load used for spark table
  desired lambda
  long term fuel trim
  Fuel mass requested
   
  Pulse width
  open loop
  TPS
  vehicle speed
  Intake cam position
  Exhaust cam position
  Current speed density offset    
  Current speed density slope

 

I then loaded this into a scatterplot, red is 1.0, rest of the scale is on the right. I also filtered this data against transient by taking the derivative of rpm and adding a data filter (these are included in megalog HD). Here is the filter I used

(abs([ENGINE_SPEED] - [ENGINE_SPEED-4]) > ([ENGINE_SPEED] * 0.05)) 


image.thumb.png.0d7f304d5522e2a7b51ef369ec69899e.png

I also made a histogram

image.thumb.png.6ed45e3673a1066dc2dc90b71047325e.png

Here are the injector figures (ID1000s)

image.png.acc2d9402e0b434f41c4842d179e098e.png

As you can see the low slope is completely wrong and far too rich (I believe KPM injectors have a weird slope like this). For ID1000s the low slope should be steeper than the high slope.

From the scatter plot you can see the high slope appears perfect. This means we need to adjust both slopes to accomodate for the new low slow (will pull 12% off fueling out first go)

REST TO COME SOON

This is where I got too it’s just quite a bit to understand.

The FG F6 uses 440cc injectors from memory. well i think at 4 bar they work out to be in the 500cc range, but here is the slopes for that.

they have verry similar low slopes so if your using this size injectors this is prob a god start point?

Nah I want to use my car to learn, I’m happy to work out how to do it, in the end it’s all trial and error and I’m happy to hit those dead ends and and have to try again to rectify them, just takes a while for me to wrap my head around stuff.

 

but yeah, I can’t really do anything at the moment with it until I actually do some data logging, then plot them out like you were suggesting earlier in those programs.

It happens that I just had my 42lb bosch green injectors installed today.  

so i've just tested the data that i gave you from the calculation from the bosch data.  I've only done a very short drive, but I just made a scatter plot as described above of Fuel flow(lb) vs Pulse width vs LTFT with the result below.

scatter23jan.png.0e07a64b3f2a82776f08acac5ca3676c.png

So..... If i'm interpreting correctly, that's pretty clearly rich in the low slope, then heading lean in the high slope.

I just tried the Capa tune hi-slope,low slope and break points and went for a drive, felt better, but the scatter plot looked like.

scatter-capa.png.a7fe42c54f35a38b5e04aef3f9b2b610.png

 

which is a bit better, but not good. so time to start making some adjustments..... and install my wideband which has been sitting on the bench over a year now.

Got a chance to datalog the drive home today.

capa slopes and breakpoint do look pretty good in the high slopes, the scatterplot shows a bit rich in the low slope(circle is approximately breakpoint).

although it gets even richer lower down, so I think the injector deadtimes are still too long. However, it drives great, so i'm not super keen to change it too much.

So, @KyleBruh i would say if you use the capa slopes and deadtimes in the excel sheet, you should be good.  If it's still rich at idle and lean under power, then something else must be wrong.... counterfeit bosch green injectors?

As I understand it, a lot of idle control is done with spark as it reacts fast, so maybe check spark source at idle. maybe air leak after throttle.

So the one you are referring to is the one you initially posted?

 

I’ll have to check over everything in that case, I do have a stripped manifold threat in the head and I’ve got the heli coil kit to repair that to solve one of the potential causes and re-tension the throttle body and probably do the intake manifold gasket because as far as I’m aware it’s still the factory gasket but it doesn’t misfire or anything to lead me to believe it has a manifold leak.

There was very little difference between these and the ones calculated in the spreadsheet. These are slightly richer in the high slope, which looks better on my scatterplot.

So where do I find the deadtimes in the spreadsheet?
