So Ive been working on the car a bit.
Sunday I decided to convert my MS2 to the extra code. Mainly b/c when I do the wife’s cabriolet project it will have to run it and the extra features for the cavy should be fun too (launch and flat shift control, boost control, etc) I made the hardware mods for it done sunday.
Monday I spent the better half of the am trying to download the code, it just wouldnt load from mylaptop. So I drove 30 min into work to use my lab desktop that has a serial port and it worked first try. I got home and it fired right up.
Tuesday I started going thru all the settings, and checking timing etc. For some reason I could just not get hte timing light to agree with MS. I tried almost everything, locking the output, putting the whole map to one value etc. The only thing that would keep it was if the bypass was enabled.
Wed nite, after a long day at the state fair, I discovered that I had the ignition output set wrong. I had it set to “inverted” and it should have been “normal”. Anyway, I changed that first thing this am, loaded in some tweaks to my maps, and manged to get it started again with the new code. I also worked out some offset issues between MS and the AEM WBO2 unit etc.
Currently the car will start up without any throttle input from most coolant temps. The timing holds great, and tracks MS perfect. I have the idle fairly stable, although perhaps a bit rich still. I took it up and down the driveway a couple times.
Tomorrow Im hoping to get it on the road and start doing some VE table tuning, at least in the n/a regions.
Maybee Ill get some pics of it outside for proof
