18 degrees out! Really? that's crazy. It's hitting over 100 here easy. That being said I didn't see RPMs on your data log. RPMs are really helpful so you know where your getting knock or are lean or what not.

Western Canada has been lucky and spared from that heat wave. I will do a run and add the RPM as a parameter today. Knock only came on twice but barely I always run 91 Shell octane and believe in the Bama tunes. I will reload the data log today.

maybe try these parameters next time afrb1, afrb2, lmbseb1, lmbseb2, etc angle, knock, spark advance, rpm, vehicle, load as a fraction

I'm also guessing that's 18 degrees Celsius, which is ~64 degrees Fahrenheit.

I sent my scans to Jim from Bama and in my opinion this is why they are seperating themselves from the pack with customer service and there new warranty :worship hands down I will be a customer for life to these guys.

Thank you for sending in the datalog to us. I have looked over the datalog and everything looks to be dialed in very well, fuel trims are within 3% of where they need to be and fuel is spot on when you’re going wide open throttle as well. The knock sensors are performing as they should and aren’t having to pull much timing out at all, so everything appears to be in order with spark as well. The only thing that I did notice in the tunes from the datalog is that the catalytic converter overtemp controls were left turned on when they should have been turned off since you have an offroad midpipe. Basically the cat overtemp controls will add a small amount of fuel if they pick up the catalytic converters as being too hot to cool them off. With them turned off in the attached tunes you will likely not notice any changes while driving the car unless you gain a small amount of fuel efficiency.

That's cool that they picked that out. They sent you new tunes based on what they saw?

Glad that Jim was able to get you squared away! I took a look at the datalogs and it looks like Jim nailed it right on the money. Cat overtemp control was left on, so he took care of that for you and you should be right around .870 lambda at WOT now for our Race Tune specifically, and .850 on your Street and Performance tunes.

Looks good, knock sensors are nice and quiet, and timing is powerful, yet plenty safe. Not much I can add here!

Enjoy!

Chris

This thread makes me lean towards going with a Bama tune.

From all the Parameters at live link, how can I find out more about the AFR without reading it from the tail pipe. Thanks

^^ I dont understand the question, the AFR1 and AFR2 are the actual real time readings from the wideband o2 sensors, you just convert the the readings over
