Trying to learn how to edit ROM's / how to tune
Since I'm new, I will not be tuning my car as of yet. I am getting a new tune from CAMtuning. I just want to learn myself.
I've been reading and reading all I can about tuning. I even bought NSFW's book recommendations (haven't read the whole thing yet).
I'm having problem w/ my tune. It's a stage 2 Tim Bailey tune w/ EcuteK. I'm currently working on getting a new ecu so I don't need to use EcuteK.
My logs are below. Really horrible. (Bought the car with this tune.)
3rd gear pull 1
3rd gear pull 2
3rd gear pull 3
APS FMIC 525
APS CAI 65mm
APS recirc valve
My IAM is at 9 and have been reading it should be at 16. I should have zero FBKC and FLKC.
What should I do about the tune? I really want to learn and understand the logic behind where to start.
I was on Rom Raiders and I just found out that I should set WGDC by zeroing the tables in Max Wastegate duty and Initial-off Wastegate Duty. After I do a log of this change, what am I really looking for?
This is what was advised on RR to me:
1.) What kind of numbers for load am I looking for in step 1?
2.) What kind of number am I looking for when checking fueling and timing? Am I looking for 0 FLKC & FBKC?
3.)How many PSi should I start with.
4.) How do you "fine tune" the boost control?
What else can I do to diagnose and correct this problem? Steps on how tuners diagnose and troubleshoot problems will be greatly appreciated.
I have a stock ROM I can reference as well.
