[Conversion Vehicles] Dual Maps via Custom OS

Update: This is obsolete in Falcons with a steering wheel as you can use the multi tune to select tunes/boost etc. This guide is only applicable for conversion cars without a factory steering wheel.

To achieve dual maps in the flex fuel custom operating system you can wire a switch into the second o2 sensor input (pin A37). This will require a custom operating system with "dual maps" enabled and "user configured voltage selection".

A great pinout is available here. 5v can be sourced from pin A36

Here is the “Blend Ramp” for spark. By setting 0.6 volts to be 1.0 ratio it means once the voltage hits 1.1 volts it will use 100% of the other spark table. Once the voltage drops below 1.1 volts (eg switch off) it will go back to using the normal maps. The O2 Sensor input can read a maximum of 1.60 volts, anything above 1.6 will clip. 5v is the limit of the hardware, above this you may damage the input, eg do not wire 12 v into this input.

Any maps you wish to disable or not use, simply set the following blend curve ratios to entirely 0. This will mean the the PCM only uses the original maps under all circumstances.

"Blend Ramp for Boost" auF100013

"Blend Ramp for Fuel" auF100012

"Blend Ramp for Spark" auF100011

"VCT Blend Ramp" auF100015

Finally you could also use a variable rotary dial to allow variable boost/power. This could be infinitely variable, or with various stages of boost.

How do you tune when you got your fuel tank mixed? Will the O2 sensor look after the tune? Eg. I have 4/10 of the tank filled with U98 then decided to top it up with E85 or vice versa. Will dual map give me clear advantage with tuning? And how? I am thinking about using custom OS hence this is my question ?

See the custom OS thread. It interpolates between the two based on the flex fuel sensor output. Eg E42.5 will be ~2.5volts hence 50% of 98 map + 50% of e85 map

The advantage is you can fill up with 98 if you daily the car and aren't near an E85 pump, you also don't need to empty the tank completely when switching fuels.

To do the full flex fuel tune you require a flex fuel sensor. Danny at Springy Performance sells a complete kit with fuel fittings and O2 sensor loom.

Hi Guys,

Just on using the second o2 sensor for this and other inputs.  Is the second o2 sensor used for anything useful other the detection of the cat failure?  I used to think it did exhaust temp but that is just calculated by the ecu and also how would it do temp, ? ? hahahah, being an o2 sensor.

Cheers,

Correct it is used to check the efficiency of the catalytic converter. Commonly this check is already disabled as the user has modified the exhaust and catalytic converter meaning it no longer passes the efficiency tests.

FYI Exhaust temperature is calculated by a lookup table of load vs rpm and then multiplied by engine coolant temperature

exhaust flange temperature =  (auF16613 base stead-state flange temperature  * 200°F ) + auF1605 Exhaust temperature modifier for ECT * (ECT -  200°F)

5v should be fine and it just pegs the value at 1.66 or 3.8v from the testing we have done. If you have a resistor handy it can't hurt to use it though. Higher voltages may damage the input over time, I haven't been able to determine what the A/D limits are as it uses a separate chip on the PCM board and not the internal A/D converters that are used for the other 5v sensors.

Why is this conversation Obsolete is there a different way to do this?

Multi tune. You can wire up cruise control buttons and use a CANBarra module to power almost any dash to display the rpm signal from the PCM. 

No one we know of has used this method in over a year hence the obsolete status.
