So my question is should I care? I don't plan on running this turbo over 24psi.

I am pretty sure there is a way to recalibrate your MAP. I believe you can raise the maximum psi and that should give you more resolution. I checked the manual but the instructions for calibrating the MAP is somewhat vague, atleast for me.

I have also not heard anything of a 4.5bar MAP sensor for anything other than the D-TEC and it is only for logging high boost.

Here is what it says in the user manual:

MAP Calibration
1. To calibrate the MAP sensor you need an accurate boost/vacuum gauge (note that 0
psi is atmospheric pressure), a UTEC and a PC.
2. Turn ON the ignition but do not start the car. Record the pressure reading (P0) in
psi on the gauge and the MAP value (M0) under logger #4.
3. Start the car.
4. As an alternative measurement for P0. Place the engine under vacuum and record
the pressure reading (P0) in psi on the gauge and the MAP value (M0) under logger
#4.
5. Place the engine under boost and record the pressure reading (P1) in psi on the
gauge and the MAP value (M1) under logger #4. Try to find a stable reading for this
in boost.
6. Ideally the two measurement points should be as far apart as possible.
7. The gradient is calculated as follows;
Gradient = 1000 * (P1 P0) / (M1 M0)
Note that this number is rounded off to the nearest whole number.
8. The intercept is calculated as follows;
Intercept = ((Gradient * M0) - (1000 * P0)) / 100
Note that this number is rounded off to the nearest whole number.


There is no note about being able to raise your maximum boost in order to allow more headroom in the maps. I do recall reading about it here on the forum though, back when I was running a UTEC on my WRX.

What is your "MAP Maximum Value for Mapping (psi)" ?

I'm not sure if you should care or not. I mean, if you got tuned like this and the tune works well, then why change things up? Maybe adjust your tune a bit. Do you knock often in the same spot?

Perhaps not so much for the OP's benefit, but it seems like a couple of different issues are being presented here. The reason for the new MAP sensor is to accurately read boost levels above 23 or so psi. The stock MAP sensor may report, say, 25 psi to the UTEC and that is what you will see in the log, but is it an honest 25 psi? The experts say no.

Increasing the range of psi actually reduces resolution. You have to fit a larger psi range in each load column, though the UTEC tries to average the two sites for in-between boost levels. Load site is determined by what boost level you hit, not the other way around. So, if you set your max at a low level (like at 10psi, which you would never ordinarily do), then anytime your boost passes 10 psi the fueling and timing will come from the 100% load site. This is terrible since it will apply the same fueling / timing for 12psi, 18 psi, 24 psi, etc.... However, below 10 psi, each pound of boost would have its own load site and fueling / timing would be spot-on (great resolution in the 10 and below psi range).

In PDX's case that you quoted, he can safely run more boost because he knows for sure that he is hitting either 26 or 28 psi. He can run optimal timing / fuel for each of those boost levels.

Feel free to correct anything if I mis-spoke as I am no expert.

Thanks for your thoughts on this. It seems to me that if I wanted to do a race gas tune it might be nice to have accurate boost readings in the utec log though I believe my boost gauge is accurate. It's just nice to have all the data in one place.

Another thing it may buy me is another fuel column to play with because right now i'm using the same fuel column for 18 psi as I do 23 psi.


I'm def going to look at my map parameters as shaggy suggested to. I'll report back.

Doesn't have anything to do with calibration. What is your max PSI for mapping set in the UTEC parameters? You apparently have it set to the stock value of 20 and have no resolution between 18 and 23 PSI. If I were you I'd rescale it and get that resolution back. Your load site also has nothing to do with timing or AFR, its all MAP based load.

IIRC, the defaults are...
0psi for "MAP Minimum Value for Mapping"
18psi for "MAP Maximum Value for Mapping"

What this gives you is...
Code:
 10%    20%     30%     40%    ...    80%       90%      100%
<2psi  2-4psi  4-6psi  6-8psi  ...  14-16psi  16-18psi  >18psi
If you really want to keep resolution, try this:
Set "MAP Minimum Value for Mapping" to 6psi
Set "MAP Maximum Value for Mapping" to 24psi
Leave your timing map set to "ECU" for 0% and 10%, 0-4000rpm.

Now, your ranges for mapping should be...
Code:
 10%    20%      30%       40%      ...    80%       90%      100%
<8psi  8-10psi  10-12psi  12-14psi  ...  20-22psi  22-24psi  >24psi

I'll def check it out later. Thanks for all the advice. Seems like when I do this i'll be tossing out the turboxs tune I paid for a couple weeks ago. I wonder why they didnt give me some headroom.

Much of the old map will be salvagable because many of the load columns still match up.

40% --> 10%
50% --> 20%
etc..

It looks like you're hitting 100 load column at only ~18psi.

Remember, the MAP in your UTEC log is what the UTEC thinks. If the UTEC is calibrated wrong, it will show MAP wrong.

And the load column is going to go off what the UTEC thinks. In the parameters, you simply must have your MAX PSI FOR MAPPING set to about 18psi.

Step #1 is to make sure your UTEC MAP is calibrated.
Step #2 is to set the MAX PSI FOR MAPPING parameter to about 22 psi.

Remember the 10% load column takes over for the ECU when your TPS crossover is met, NOT when MAP reaches your "MIN PSI FOR MAPPING". Keep that in mind when setting your MIN PSI setting. If you are setting it more than 0psi, I suggest putting "ECU" in the timing map for the 10% column.

Given this information, I'd be tentative about changing anything. I mean, who should know the UTEC better than TXS. Besides, if it is running well except for this one knock, then just tell them about it and ask for their advice. You did not say if this is recurring or not. Maybe false knock?

You paid good money to get a knock-free tune and they should make good on it, though it may come at the expense of a few whp. That would be a good trade-off: more safety for a few less whp.

Thats only half the story. Its what the UTEC thinks and is smoothed so you don't always see the MAP following the load. Weird eh?

Do you think this would cause issues on large injectors under the 6psi mark? Or is any psi reading up to that point (considering TPS setting has been surpassed) going to read from the 10% column?

yes, anything under 8psi in that example would be 10% load once past the hard throttle crossover. The 0% column is so big that the a/f ratio wouldn't be so consistent in different situations, not that this wouldn't work. I just don't see the harm in making the load sites a little bigger(by not raising the min as much as the max). I use a min value of 4(so I get about 5.5 and lower in the 10% column) and a max of 22, which works pretty well for me, but is still a little high(the min value).

^^^^^ That was glaring out. The map needs to be scaled out further.
