plugs that your using are to cold and are creating to much interference. We have seen
this before in coils and non-resistive plug wire
from link as to why I'm having issues at full boost
anyone want to comment on this?

Jan even told me that he has seen this on older Links

I can upgrade the software thats on the board right now...

Sounds like they don't even realize you're running a Coil-On-Plug (COP) ignition. I would expect zero interference/noise. Sounds like BS to me.

What issues you seeing at full boost?

I'm running colder plugs in my car, and my full boost (20psi) situation is just fine... other than the occassional TP slap in the face, but even that has disappeared a bit since I reduced my accel numbers down to anywhere from 9 to 12. I think the bug is still there, it just doesn't "hit" me as hard for some reason

Sorry, I had missed those - did a search, know what you're talking about now.

So, zone 745 and 750 are 4500 to 5000 RPM, on row 120. Boost isn't too high, RPM obviously isn't.... care to share a log with us?

It sounds like Just the opposite of what Sponaugle and I (and I'm sure many others see). TBS of:

98,98,98,98,98,98,12,98,98,98,98

but %FF of:

75,75,76,76,76,76,99,99,99,99,87,77

I'm not using their latest upgrade (the 5/22 upgrade) at this time, because I have an issue with using a software upgrade with no release notes. And to think I use windows

What do you mean software upgrade? You mean firmware, on the board? Flashable bios type of thing? I bought my Link probably 2 months ago or so...

I've been running 7 temperature range NGK platinums for 5000 miles in a COMPLETELY STOCK motor. No boost control. No aftermarket turbo. Stock injectors. Only mods are silicone intake and intercooler hoses and some Redline water-wetter in the radiator.

Plugs work just fine. No problems, whatsoever.

Maybe the people who are having plug problems aren't gapping them properly?

What do you have your accel numbers set at? I see your coming off throttle, then getting back on the throttle when it occurs - does it always happen at about that time?

You got some NASTY knock in there as well, although I'm guessing thats probably just you shifting at 7500RPM, right?

yes...I was shifting...

and its not the accel....cause I get it to happen at that zone at any time. The boost creep thread...I can still hit 15psi...as soon as I do....bam...it happens...

so it doesn't happen right when I get on it...I can do partial throttle and it will still happen

Are you controlling your boost via the LINK, or with another method (ie MBC or EBC). I'm grasping at straws now... as you said, knock is ok, o2 is ok (right up until it dies on you) %FF is ok... maybe you should just avoid that particular part of the map

(sorry, not very helpful)

One thing I would remedy right away is your TPS settings. I noticed your full throttle setting yeilds 102% TPS which I heard is *bad*

Interesting.. I still have the stock plugs, so I can't really add.

I noticed your o2 values are reading somewhere in the range I'd like mine too. I see anywhere from .97-1V at WOT. I try to take out fuel and the thing just knocks like mad. I wish I had access to a WB(waiting for a tech edge kit) so I could get some real numbers.

What kinda o2 voltages are other people seeing at WOT on boost?

The laptop only has one COM port

I've thought about using a USB--->Serial adaptor but the WBo2 program will only read COM ports....not USB...
