Title: Nefmoto community project: Stage1 2.7t ME7.1 S4 (APB 8D0907551M-0002)
Post by: FlyboyS4 on August 28, 2014, 06:14:13 PM
The goal of this thread is to use a collaborative effort to provide guidance about some of the basic concepts and procedures involved with creating a stage 1 tune for the 2.7T S4 starting from a stock file.

Here's a quick link to the post where work done on the stage 2 phase is contained.
Stage 2 Change Summary (http://nefariousmotorsports.com/forum/index.php?topic=6695.msg79082#msg79082)

This page is the summary of the Stage 1 phase.

[editors note]
The stage1/stage2 nomenclature used here is a bit confusing and a bit non-standard. Typically, stage2 refers to full exhaust (dp+catback). I don't really know what stage2 refers to here - nyet

Ok. So what we want here is a clear, concise list of what a stage 1 file should consist of.

Guidelines that must be adhered to:

1. Safe for STOCK HARDWARE.
2. Safe for either 91 or 93 octane
3. Simplicity

I think we start with a list of maps. If you feel something should be included, post your reasoning. I will be cleaning this thread up periodically to make sure it stays easy to follow :)

I think we should show detailed information of each map what the axis's mean and when you change a value what it does.

My list:

LDRXN - requested load cap (increase boost)
NMAX - rev limiter (easy, because it is a single value!)
VMAX - speed limiter (easy, because it is a single value!)
LAMFA - one of three ways to do fueling.. I'm not sure it is the easiest, because it requires two somewhat confusing related changes:
1) req torque axis - changing axis data is tricky, and to make matters worse, stock axis values are kinda screwed up
2) low pass filter/time constant changes - the time constant value is somewhat odd, in that its units are strange.

We could alternately do fueling via BTS or KR, but both have their own oddities. Opinions?

KFZW/KFZW2 - timing. The easiest thing to do for the guide is to tell the noob to just keep the two maps the same in high load/rpm areas... would talking about cam position make things overly complicated?

NWPMBBR/VMPMBBR - allow left foot braking (easy, single values!)

In TunerPro, CTRL-F for NMAX

Change this numeric value to 7000 or 7200 (I did 7000), save the bin, then apply ME7Sum and ME7Check, then it is ready to be flashed to the ECU using the Nefmoto flasher.

*Edit* I noticed in the S4 Tuning Wiki it mentions bumping up NMAXF (RPM DTC limit) to 300 rpm over NMAX, so I have revised my tune accordingly.

Step 1. Learn about internal combustion engines and understand how and why they work.

Then everything else can fall into place.

Far too many people don't seem to understand even basic concepts absolutely vital to engine tuning of any kind.

Most people have no idea why timing should be removed somewhere and added else where except for maybe they've heard/read that peak TQ will have the lowest value (not always true) or something to that respect. Or why targeting a certain lambda value on one engine/setup won't work for another. Most don't understand the other many influences that happen in a dynamic running engine.

If just creating a flow chart is the purpose of this thread then ignore my comments I suppose.  But changing a bunch of numbers around that someone can only relate to as more is better here and less is better there because someone said so isn't "tuning".

I understand, and agree. One of the prerequisites here is that people have a basic understanding of how an engine operates.

My vision was to treat the process like an apprenticeship, seeking out a few mentors to take people willing to learn through the process.

I fall into that category. Hardware on the car is almost straight and ready for tuning, will be ready to install downpipes soon and open possibility for some higher power levels. Getting software necessary for tuning downloaded and figured out and will be comparing some files to understand the changes being made before I try to flash anything. A how-to would be incredibly useful.

After looking at the VAVMX/VMAX (Speed Limiter) that Nye referred to (value displayed in km/hr) I decided to leave mine at the stock 143 mph (230 kph) level because that is faster than I anticipate driving.

Is Grad C a unit?

I would love to learn the process! I am a mechanic and fully understand the basics of engine operation, but I have never played with software and just need guidance on how a certain setting not only changes parameters of the aspect it pertains to, but how it references other associated paramters to come up with a final value.
Say ignition timing for instance. In a distributor style ignition system you really can only adjust base ignition timing and the advance curve. In my 2001 GTI with a 1.8t I believe that timing not only changes due to engine speed, but boost level, driver requested load value, coolant temperature, ambient temperature, knock detection, etc., and is capable of varying individual cylinder timing if I'm not mistaken.

Basically I would love for someone to guide me through what changes affect what, and how it affects everything around it so I can grasp the whole big picture of how the Motronic system manages an engine.

Post by: Bi-turbo on September 01, 2014, 03:13:40 AM
How fair would you suggest to run the timing on stage 1? An commercial tune i had on my S4 when i 1st had it logged 9deg at 5860rpm with .8bar i dont have the file or ever did but have the VCDS logs.

The map was ok produced 305bhp

Went really well but havning not drivern a standard S4 and them jumping to Stage 2 i cant compare.

Im happy with a stage 1 map for S4 but i need AFR min so i can flash it and log it would prefer knock detection but dont have the funds for that yet.

Lots of information out there, but this document does a great job at getting some of the very important fundamentals across (attached).

My advice is to read as much as you can get your hands on... If you're the type that learns better hands on, get friendly with some local shops/engine builders or consider a course for ICE or even tuning (beginner courses usually touch on ICE basics).

Loving this thread already... since this is all info I'll be looking for after I sort out the problems with my allroad.

One thing - the XDF on here for mbox is missing a lot of the variables that are listed on the wiki.  It would help to have an updated XDF with all of the parameters from the wiki defined.

Another thing - should include some clear directions for disabling emissions equipment... there is a lot of information on the forum and wiki, but it's tough for a newb to follow

Here is my contribution. These files are stock from a calibration standpoint. The Bosch files have obviously been converted to Bosch spec, and have had cw_can_r set so as to allow coding for non-esp cars without DTC's. Please look at the xdf, and realize that I understand some of the terminology is wrong. I went for universally understandable as opposed to black letter. Additionally, emissions and codewords are switches now, just click one button and they are set appropriately. No more explaining 1's and 0's. All units have been converted to mph, LDRXN has been converted to psi.

Thoughts?

Post by: nyet on September 04, 2014, 05:59:24 PM
I'm not convinced making ldrxn psi is a good idea...

I'm tempted to say you can have both a PSI version and a load version of the map in the xdf, but I guess that would confusing (even though you could use it to illustrate there is a relationship).

In my map packs, I doubled up all the lambda tables into lambda and AFR. Also, i have a krkte double that is cc/min... and KUMSRL (uh i think thats the map?) that is displacement.

Or maybe this is the wrong time to bring it up :/ I'm a bad teacher so ignore me at will.

The goal here is to make this more approachable and limit confusion.

I know, technically everyone should read the FR and understand how ME7 converts load request to boost, but that's beyond the scope of what we're trying (at least me) to accomplish here. Once people see appreciable results from their OWN work, I think that'll create the drive to dig deeper. I feel as though if we keep the redundancy to a minimum, it'll prevent a lot of questions later.

With that being said, I'm just approaching this based on the questions I get most. I would love to hear from some of the new members, fresh off the boat. I figure I'll add map names in parenthesis in the xdf descriptions for the stage2 xdf, that way the natural progression steers people in the right direction.

HOWEVER:

These are just my thoughts. I don't want to monopolize this, or trivialize anyone's ideas. That's not what I'm about :P

This is correct. Same with all of the other switches. Try it out.


Title: Re: Nefmoto community project: Stage1 2.7
Post by: FlyboyS4 on September 04, 2014, 06:39:29 PM
Thoughts?

As a kickoff I think the XDF is excellent.

I could live with LDRXN not being in PSI, but that's only because I do a separate calculation on a spreadsheet to get an estimate for what PSI would be.  For now leaving it as PSI is probably the way to go, erring on the side of simplicity is my preference, it's easier to introduce advanced concepts after a basic understanding has been established rather than getting bogged down trying to explain things that could have been avoided in the first place.

For those following along at home, should we have set the Rev limiter and Speed Limiter at this point?  Looking ahead, next we will...

Post by: vwaudiguy on September 04, 2014, 07:11:48 PM
I think having both versions in the xdf (load and psi values for LDRXN for example) and so on would be great to help people learn on their own the relationship between the two. Once they get comfortable they will most likely move over to using the tables/maps correctly (load values for LDRXN). Just took a look at the xdf...Might also be good to add the ME7 acronym along with it's English description for the maps, and adding axis descriptions for the ones that aren't obvious. Great job by the way!

I'll be glad to log it.  I posted the variables I normally log previously thinking I might get a suggestion about what else to log.  I don't want to log a ton of variables just because I can, I like to limit what I log to what I expect to use, if I need to create a new config file for troubleshooting I'll do that.

About the Stage 1 tune, at this point we have a stock file so logging in the current state would not be necessary, right?  I saw the comments in the flyover box about making changes but would be interested in getting some suggestions or discussing a little more.  Based upon the notes does the "Desired Air/Fuel Ratio" table remain uniform throughout?  Presently all table values are 14.7 - I'd have thought tailoring that might be part of a Stage 1 tune.  Is it not due to the range of the table, just 50-100 pedal position and rpm basically 3000-6000?  Is the table interpolated between the 1000 and 3000 rows?

I'd like to participate, but have an ME 7.1.1 allroad and that might throw too many variables into the mix.  that and I have a damned apr chip soldered to my ecu.

As for the actual AFR, I figured something a little richer to account for 91.

Post by: nyet on September 07, 2014, 06:23:21 PM
VERY roughly: KFPED generates mrfa, which is the torque axis of LAMFA.

The result goes through a low pass filter

In any case, hopefully you have read this first before reading this thread :)

So in Flyboy's example, it looks like the LAMFA axis hasn't been changed.  ??? Or is the pedal position map the LAMFA axis?

Is timing change 100% nessasery for stage 1?

Ive seen 2 "pro" maps one for S4 B5 were it had KFMIRL upped and 1.4bar in LDRXN but timing was 100% stock, the other was 1.8T octavia 180bhp same but 1.2 bar (0.7bar standard)

My opinion would be to remove and negitive timing as a starting point and test/log

Very unlikely. Also, the beginner won't be worrying about that. For the purposes of this project, assume everyone is using the M or L-box. If you want to use a different file, I suggest defining it manually and starting your own thread :P You will get help there.

Rescale the axis to 50 60 70 80 90 97.5

Ok, when I looked at the axis values I was thinking the 0.50 0.60 etc was the way the percent value was written in the table, which is why the last value changed from 1.0 to 0.97  I'll make the update.

The S4 wiki tuning page explains that this is wrong and there are links to the thread here which breaks it down in detail.

PLEASE let me know if the tuning page is missing something; I really want to make sure it is complete with respect to this tutorial.

Alright, I guess the next step is, who is familiar with me7logger, and wants to guinea pig the stage1 and log it?


I've successfully used it! After a little time with winOLS with comparing a defined 551M ecu it actually was pretty easy. Added KFZW's axis, IOP, IRL corrected addresses for 551T.  I cannot post any logs at this time because A.) I can't get the visual logger to connect and B.) the throttle hose keeps blowing off.   ::) When I am finished debugging the logger/hose issue I'll post them up!

Looks good. I'd leave the last entry 100.0 to prevent confusion.

Also, the XDF should probably explicitly call that table the axis... maybe something like

"Pedal position axis for the Desired Air/Fuel Ratio table" so it is clear it is related to the "Desired Air/Fuel Ratio" table.. I wish TP let you change axis data directly :/

No, I saw it, just saying maybe it would be better if it specifically said "axis" in the table name itself..

Also, as to your question (from that other thread) if we should use BTS instead... I think that is actually more complicated. Too much stuff has to change.

Also, this way introduces the idea of changing "axis" data in gentle way (I hope).

My 2 cents of course..

6 pages this far, and personally I don't see how this thread benefits anyone learning how to tune ME7.

If you would stay true to the topic/thread title, there should be just a list of maps with a suggested range of changes listed in the first post from input of the users.  THAT would be a true community Stage 1 project.  The back and forth going on here mean this will end up to be a 30 page thread with information scattered everywhere and people trying to piece parts of info together because they don't really know what the map they're changing actually does and why it does what it does.

Or am I the only one that see's this?
I agree. I was hoping to use this thread to put a little more focus on specific maps and what they do. I am on Me7.1.1 so my xdf is still in German which makes it that much harder. I find I am still having to jump from 10 different threads to feel like I am getting somewhere.

Honestly LAMFA is probably the most straight forward fueling map to use for beginners. You will also have BTS if the user is on stock ish exhaust system as a safety. In order to get BTS to work efficiently it would take the user some time with playing with the EGT temp trigger and dialing it in.

Alright. Once Jeff rescales the LAMFA axis, and posts a log (preferably with light throttle/closed loop leading to WOT) We'll call fueling good. Then neuter timing a bit for the next revision? What say you? I'm tempted to go right to boost, but on 91 octane, even stock timing at peak load can get messy.

Making the changes in the axis map in the xdf is sufficient. After you do that, if you open LAMFA, the axis should reflect your changes.

What Daz has done to the xdf file I'm happy to see. This is more or less what I was looking for when I 1st came onto the forums. I do agree some things should be left for a stage 2 file builder. But from what I see so far this makes me feel more comfortable coming from other tuning software like OpenECU. Thanks Daz and others, wish I could find a way to help other then a tester and see how a start from scratch file comes out.

I will be following. I of course will try this out and still use the other 2 xdf's needed for my files. But glad to see this progress. A clean-up later maybe should be taken away from discussion and a new thread started, I think this one is needed as it helps the knowledgeable communicate with the less informed.

**After getting some closer looks, I think some smaller/simple wording should be included in the descriptions just tho's who are 1st starting off, I'm stunned how much easier this xdf makes the approach to tuning able to be done.... I know a lot of my confusion was based on axis and means... to me afr of 1 didn't mean much, coming from other tuning software that dealt in idk what it would be called but just xx.xx so that already helps me never mind someone new to tuning period. I wish I knew more how to use TunerPro more to help with the XDF building but I'm lost... anyone got a PDF of the instruction manual or something??

Another vote for maintaining the original FR names in some form.  This will help make the information useful for someone using an XDF based on FR names instead of one that has been pre-defined with user-friendly names.  Selfish request, really (I'm tuning an allroad 'S' box), but it's been wonderful being able to take the B5 S4 2.7T info on this site and apply it to my own ECU.

Or add fuel. Tough call. The only real way to know is a dyno.

You can try to measure acceleration with road logs, but you have to be scrupulous about keeping variables to a minimum.

If you are talking about the curve from 3600ish it looks like the switch from KFZW2 back to KFZW.

Some of what you may be feeling is also cam changeover.

Of course. But this still does not point to whether the timing pull should be resolved with less boost, less timing, or more fuel.

Post by: ddillenger on September 23, 2014, 08:43:27 PM
Here is how I view logs for timing work:

(http://i.imgur.com/AIPbwwg.png)

If the camshaft angle is 0, that means KFZW is being used. If it is 22, that means we're in KFZW2.

In this log, we can see that from 3800 onward the values in KFZW are being used. Prior to that, it is KFZW2.

We can also see two knock events. One at 2200rpm, 150ish load. One at 2500, 160ish load. Take a look at the values for in KFZW where 2500rpm and 150 load intersect. Reduce timing in that area. NOTE! Just because CF is 3, does not mean you have to pull 3 degrees! One knock event at that RPM means CF's will be 3. This is actually not bad, and can be left as is, but I wanted to post for illustration purposes.

I would then suggest making sure KFZW/KFZW2 have the same values around 140-160 load at 3500-4000rpm to reduce the notch in timing. After that, relog. If you are not showing any CF's, I would then suggest adding more timing up top, from 4500 onward (to KFZW).


Title: Re: Nefmoto community project: Stage1 2.7t ME7.1 (APB)
Post by: vwaudiguy on September 23, 2014, 09:52:10 PM
Great explanation. I would like to see overall ign timing on that graph as well if possible. Would you suggest removing timing by say half of what you see in correction? Also is it good to remove timing a little earlier than when you actually see the correction? Might be nice to have LDRXN expressed in both load and psi in the boost folder of the xdf so we can relate to KFZW/2 better.


Title: Re: Nefmoto community project: Stage1 2.7t ME7.1 (APB)
Post by: ddillenger on September 23, 2014, 10:26:21 PM
Like I said, remove as little as possible. As KFZW is 8 bit, the increments are .75 (I said this in the post). As for ignition angle, that is a separate graph. The point of this is to keep it simple and do one thing at a time.

If you feel you have a better way, by all means, post an illustration! This is supposed to be a collaboration after all.

Here is how I view logs for timing work:

(http://i.imgur.com/AIPbwwg.png)

If the camshaft angle is 0, that means KFZW is being used. If it is 22, that means we're in KFZW2.

In this log, we can see that from 3800 onward the values in KFZW are being used. Prior to that, it is KFZW2.

We can also see two knock events. One at 2200rpm, 150ish load. One at 2500, 160ish load. Take a look at the values for in KFZW where 2500rpm and 150 load intersect. Reduce timing in that area. NOTE! Just because CF is 3, does not mean you have to pull 3 degrees! One knock event at that RPM means CF's will be 3. This is actually not bad, and can be left as is, but I wanted to post for illustration purposes.

I would then suggest making sure KFZW/KFZW2 have the same values around 140-160 load at 3500-4000rpm to reduce the notch in timing. After that, relog. If you are not showing any CF's, I would then suggest adding more timing up top, from 4500 onward (to KFZW).


Thanx gays this is by far most giving explanations i have seen.
Question.
Can we say that 2.7T Engines Always use in BOTH cams KFZW2 at low rpms, and KFZW both cams in high rpms ( meaning after swichover)???
If we lower or bump up timing for ie .75 deg, is the effect lowering or bumping up LOAD in those areas? Meaning getting more TQ in this areas??

wow, I was under the impression that the kfzw tables worked opposite of that.    ::)

I thought the switch over caused the tables to go from kfzw to kfzw2.  Good to know.

Do that by adjusting one downward or the other upward?  Down seems like the safe route but almost certain to need additional modification back upward.

Depends. If you have no timing pull after changeover, then yes, increase KFZW. Lower KFZW2 if it is knocking prior to the switch.

I have a question as to why the adjustment would be made in KFZW and not KFZW2 where the knock event was logged based on this statement[Take a look at the values for in KFZW where 2500rpm and 150 load intersect]. Reduce timing in that area

Post by: phila_dot on September 24, 2014, 02:40:26 PM
(http://i.imgur.com/AIPbwwg.png)

KFNW uses rlsol_w, so when you go WOT the cam advances right away and begins retarding just after 3600 RPM.

In the graph that DD posted, KFZW2 is used where you see cam state at 22*, KFZW is used where it is at 0*, and they are interpolated while the state is changing. fnwue is the percentage of KFZW2.

I have a question as to why the adjustment would be made in KFZW and not KFZW2 where the knock event was logged based on this statement[Take a look at the values for in KFZW where 2500rpm and 150 load intersect]. Reduce timing in that area

That was an accident I'm sure. It would be KFZW2, but I wouldn't touch it as it's two cylinders with one knock event each.

I would also advance KFZW during/after changeover.

Edit: And to stay with the naming convention: KFZW = Ignition Timing, KFZW2 = Ignition Timing (VVT Active)

Post by: phila_dot on September 24, 2014, 03:59:21 PM

B_kl, but you won't catch it 99% of the time because you aren't logging crank sychroneously.

Or were you asking how I decided it was only one knock event on the two cylinders?

I was wondering how it was determined from the chart on the previous page, containing this explanation.

We can also see two knock events. One at 2200rpm, 150ish load. One at 2500, 160ish load. Take a look at the values for in KFZW where 2500rpm and 150 load intersect. Reduce timing in that area. NOTE! Just because CF is 3, does not mean you have to pull 3 degrees! One knock event at that RPM means CF's will be 3.

Post by: phila_dot on September 24, 2014, 04:25:27 PM
Ignition is retarded by krfkw from KRFKN for each knock occurance. KRFKN ranges from 1.5-3* based on RPM.

In this example ignition was retarded by 2.25* then began advancing back to 0* retard. If there were more knock events, then ignition angle would have been retarded again/further.


Title: Re: Nefmoto community project: Stage1 2.7t ME7.1 (APB)
Post by: ddillenger on September 24, 2014, 04:32:24 PM
I agree. If I were tuning this I would not alter timing for knock on 2 cylinders. That, to me, is ideal. It shows you're at the very limits of what is possible on the setup without surpassing them. I just explained how to do it because not everyone will be in as good of shape after increasing boost.

I still can't fathom how everyone was confusing KFZW and KFZW2.

I am very glad to see you here phila. Drop some nuggets of wisdom. You've see where we started, what, in your opinion, should we be doing differently (if anything) and next? I don't want to monopolize this thread.

Gays?

What do you mean by both cams?

B1 and B2? Or intake and exhaust?

Both banks are adjusted together. Only the intake cams are adjustable.

Advancing timing towards MBT increases torque.

I think the stock values are around 2.3 tapering to 1.8 (17 to 11 psi relative), so that makes no sense anyway.

Something else is amiss.

Hey guys,

I would be interested in being a tester for this project, but with a couple of concerns....  My s4 is my daily driver so I can't risk being down and I can risk having something pop due to the tune.

I have a 2001 s4 with tirptronic, as far as I know it is bone stock. 
I skimmed through the entire post, and I have been a pc tech for about 20 years so I am very comfortable with cmdline, and I do have an older vcds cable (serial, I haven't upgraded to the USB one yet for my 2010 vw).

Would it be possible to have someone write up some direction for someone who has never used this particular software?

I'd be willing to help log. I've got a stock (only mods other than software are 710Ns & TBB) 2002 6spd Avant. I also have 2 ECUs, a bench harness, and am very familiar with logging/flashing.

Ok, the first thing to do is figure out why the suggested LDRXN does not result in the proper boost request...

So if you could start with that, and add logging the variables phila suggested in an earlier post, we can get to the next step.

Thanks!

I've had the idea to contribute something like this for a while, and have never made time to do it.  Props to everyone contributing and making it happen..

I've also got a new allroad, stock other than catback, that I can possibly help with some logging graphs if I get a minute (and if I am able to do some work and determine that the K03's are still good, otherwise it will go big turbo right away).

BTW, I haven't checked the xdf's myself and am only going off of the screenshots, but if not already, I agree with the previous suggestions that having the real names for the maps in addition to the easier descriptors will help ease the transition for people to go from 'stage 1' into future self-directed research and tuning (and it would help people who already know the map names by knowing what they are actually changing).

Command line is like bacon. Everything and anything tastes better with it. ME7sum is so easy a fast to use that even if You've never used cmd, You would be able to run ME7sum in two minutes.

If You already know how to use me7check, me7sum is basically the same.

There's easy way to run a command line process with minimal typing, just drag and drop files

Open up a command prompt by pressing the windows key, type cmd, press enter.

If you want to use ME7Sum to correct checksums follow these steps:

1) drag the ME7Sum exe over the command prompt window.
2) select the command prompt window and press the spacebar
3) drag your bin file over the command prompt window.
4) select the command prompt window and press the spacebar
5) drag your bin file over the command prompt window again.  Rename that file path parameter in the command prompt if you wish to not overwrite your non-checked file
6) Press enter

If you want to use ME7Sum to validate your file, follow steps 1-3 and 6.
The same would apply to ME7Check, 1-3 and 6, but drag ME7Check in the first step instead of ME7Sum

i may have rolled on it at first ....that was my fault i was just checking that and kicking myself......
not ssure if this matters but this pull was right after i installed the ecu and did a tba

when logging it is super important to be consistent.

Also, this is why I really dislike tuning tip cars (kick down etc.) and i was hoping to keep this thread restricted to 6sp ....

I have a TCU program I use that restricts downshifts when in tip mode. Makes it more akin to a 6 speed.

Won't help here though.

HBN limit maybe?

http://www.myaudis4.com/tuning_images/nef4/me7log_20140924.csv

To get this back on track:

I don't think this is a HBN problem..

My thoughts:

* 160 req load with very low IATs will have a pretty low boost req - we should consider maybe requesting more load
* I don't think we should express LDRXN in boost, since the load->boost conversion is very IAT dependent (although we could counteract it in the spec load -> cor spec load path with KFTARX)
* req boost isn't tapering because of IAT rising from stock ICs... that is pretty much canceling out the spec load taper

I'm rockin a TIP with a mod from Daz, wish I got the kick-down turned off lol... makes the car more like a manual plus logs are hard to get like at 3000k or below, you gotta roll on it low part throttle and then do WOT like my logs show.

Gonna suck for dyno guy. O well he don't get it correct they should have to do another run to make up for it. My last car then stopped dyno at 6500. My turbo was pte6152e didn't make 20psi to 4500, and the cams where ready to go already hks272's but I had it tuned to 7500rpms. I felt I got lower reading on dyno and seen and felt more like 370awhp not 345awhp on a 4g63

Post by: FlyboyS4 on October 12, 2014, 06:14:49 AM
My understanding of the requested boost table (LDRXN) is that it approximates what the requested boost will be, but is not a direct determinant.  The boost curve that I log should roughly follow the shape of what is planned, but the magnitude of the boost value may not match what is in the table. 

What I'm finding odd about the resulting boost profile is how it climbs where the 'requested' values in the table are decreasing.  That's the part where the other factors come into play, and illustrates how the table is not the sole driver of the resultant boost profile.

Here's a chart with the new variables:

Yep. Nye and I spent quite some time talking about how to best approach this.

We decided to just try increasing LDRXN by an arbitrary amount and ditching the PSI conversion.

Care to give that a shot Jeff?

Yes, I've just increased the values (black line) slightly versus the old (red line) values and will see how the boost changes.

I'm also going to slightly lower timing around 2000-2500 rpm and increase a little around 4000-5000.  All timing changes will be on the order of 1-2 degrees.

Please post logs, and ECUxPlot graphs if possible..

IDC is maxed, so I think we are good there. Don't think we can do much more boost on stock injector/fpr.

Timing looks good.

Don't know about the rest until i can look at the logs themselves, in particular, PID stuff.

Whatever you are using to process the csvs... please stop. You padded it with commas.

Even worse the first line is

Code:
1,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

which makes automated parsing of that csv impossible.

PLEASE at least try to open it with ECUxPlot (to verify your munging didn't mess anything up), since that is what others will be using to visualize the data, not hand cutting/pasting into excel, or similar silliness.

Also, at this point, we are going to need the rest of the PID variables, since we are underboosting...

Code:

This illustrates our load/boost issues... phila, can you comment?

Also, maybe need to log ldrlms_w, fupsrl_w, and pirg_w... I don't have locations for any of those :(

TIA :)

Note that ChargeLimit etc. doesn't have units... probably need to hand edit the ecu file to get it to report mbar... either that or the log is kinda screwed up so ECUxPlot is having problems extracting the units properly. Need the original .csv to make sure.

KFTARX and KFLDHBN

fldrrx_w is 1 throughout, I imagine coolant temp remains below 117* c, so all rlmxko_w intervention is from KFTARX.

There is also load intervention via ldrlts_w (KFLDHBN).

rlsol_w does need to be added to the config file though.

The timing changes.  On the left side are the original tables and on the right are the current values.  For KFZW2 I lowered the values slightly to try and eliminate the ignition retard that was occurring around 2000-2500 rpm.  For KFZW I raised some of the timing values to try and have a smoother transition around 3500-4000.

I believe this is as far as the Stage 1 tune will go.  The thought was to start a Stage 2 tune discussion and use that thread to address some of the more advanced topics that surfaced during the Stage 1 tune.

I'm swapping to different turbo's so I won't be logging the Stage 2 changes.

im kind of surprised the apr tune stage 1 killed our tune in the acceleration department ......i think what is killing this tune is timing was barley touched and could use some more......

Uh. 11 psi vs 16?

I don't think we should stop here for stage 1.

IMO we need to massage HBN, bring up peak req boost to 15 or so, possibly iron out the VVT load->boost wrinkles (i'm sure purists will cringe, but IMO I don't gaf), work on fueling, then timing.

If we start breaking this down, is HBN an issue at this point? In Flyboy's last log (me7log_20141016_214741) I don't see HBN intervening. The corrected load follows rlmxko so it's most likely the KFTARX map, correct? Do we want to modify that map to at least keep our requested boost at lower temperatures? We should probably log frxta_w to see what it's doing. Even at stock boost levels I've had this cause throttle cut on cold days.

Agreed on all points, after reviewing that log. I think before messing with LDRXN we really should consider flattening all the KFP maps 3krpm and up... makes tuning LDRXN much more sane.

What does rlsol_w look like?

The requested load (rlsol_w) follows the corrected load (rlmax_w). It's included in the log I posted if you want to take a closer look. The math works out for the IAT correction factor.

The misfire is not unique to the Nef tune.  I think it's caused by a poor fit on a phenolic spacer that I'm trying out.  Oddly VCDS calls it out on a different cylinder, 4 I believe, even though it is in the same cylinder that it is occurring.  It's most prevalent at idle.

Thanks for sharing the insight Jeff. It's good too know that it is not specific to the Nef tune.
I also experienced a very similar phenomenon on a L-box except on VCDS is showing Cylinder #5 where Me7Logger shows #4 consistently lol...

Would you say that it's most prevalent at idle AND only when the engine is warmed up / running in closed-loop?
And so I guess this is caused by some type of leak at the intake manifold?

Cheers!

By that do you mean the input value of 191, or the axis at 191? If so how do you modify it ?

I mean KFLDIMX is too low.

So this what im getting when adjusting boost and fueling im not sure  as to why im not getting full boost but am absolute sure its not a boost leak (my other logs/tune show this) id like to continue to try to help but this is what im getting, if i load my other tune i see 17 psi and it follows requested......just trying to gain some momentum


You have a TC up to 4k rpm

What's TC..... and I'll get more logs in a little while .... with nyes suggested variables

Take a look at throttle angle in your log.
It clearly shows that you are pushing the pedal 100% but ecu is reducing it up to 4k rpm for some reason. It is TC- throttle cut.

Increase KFLDIMX. It is too low. Try to envision the duty cycle it's going to take to hit the boost you want. Put those numbers in the last column (1000mb).

Your imax is a mess.... not sure what you did but it isn't good ;( It should be relatively flat throughout the entire rpm range

Also, whatever it is your are plotting, it is obscuring the details of what you need to be looking at. Concentrate on ONE thing at a time. In this case, you need to get boost straightened out.

Change the baud rate to 38400, samples per second to 15. Should not have any issues. If you do, change connection to slow 0x00 and retry.

I am trying to understand how the boost is determined. I have read a lot and still seem to be stumped. I understand that dd used LDRXN_1_A map as boost in his xdf. I dont understand how he got boost out of that. To my knowledge LDRXN_1_A is the max the load/boost can be. And KFMIOP is what the driver requests based on hill throttle what have you. KFMIOP is the actual percent of KFMIRL that the engine ends up getting.

So we control KFMIOP as a percent based on pedal and hill or whatever, this is then multiplied by KFMIRL to equal our actual load requested as long as this output is below LDRXN_1_A.

I still dont understand how one can predict a specific psi based off this requested "load" business unless there is a conversion factor. I am also confused as to what the axis are for these maps I realize one is rpm but the other is something difficult.

No.. not really. It's complex. I have a description in the S4wiki but there is no way to summarize IOP in a single sentence like that

My waste gates are cracking at 15 psi so i want to get my boost set to 17-18 so i can plug my n75 in and get that dialed in first. Why i am trying to understand how load requests boost.

IOP is solely for converting load to torque. Its value in the map is based on rpm and load. How does the part of IOP that is above 60% throttle found? This is the part there is no restriction, i understand that but i believe 60% throttle can be applied to any value of rpm. Thefore what is that 60% part.

When load corrected is put into IOP it results in max torque. It goes on to say that max torque will always be calculated from the portions of the map with loads higher than the minimum load corrected from LDRXN. The first sentence contradicts the second. If Load corrected is put in Iop to get Max torque then the portions of IOP map that are being used are the Load Corrected portions. It doesnt say anything about LDRXN unless LDRXN is Load Corrected. I guess i dont understand how LDRXN effects Load Corrected.

Current torque must not exceed torque limit. It says that if IOP is tuned incorrectly such a result can occur. We can raise IOP to Raise Max torque. It hasnt said anything about current torque except that IOP calculates it.

I have been re-reading this over and over. drawing diagrams all sorts of shit, its not clear to me. I ask this question here because i am a noob and followed this stage 1 thread and the next step or question i have is this concept.

KFPED converts pedal to torque. Pick the highest torque value for anything under 60% pedal, and you can put whatever you want in IOP there.

rlmax (load corrected) comes DIRECTLY from LDRXN (rlmx)

So its trying to say that LDRXN will always be the input value to IOP for max torque?

KFPED converts pedal to torque. Pick the lowest torque value for 60% pedal, and you can put whatever you want in IOP there.

I thought IOP converts load to torque how can you input a torque?


EDIT***after reading a ton of posts it seems like no one knows fully what the hell is going on. people guessing IOP up or down or only playing with the last couple columns. It is separate from IRL but inverse functions lol some people code out the whole damn thing while others say they want the smooth torque delivery. The 60% throttle statement still makes no sense. I think im better off tweeking values and fixing mistakes than trying to really understand what is going on? IRL has to be raised to increase boost or load which in turn means IOP must be tuned. The last columns of IOP gives most people success.

Alternately, if you could supply ram locations for ALL of the torque variables I have for the s4 mbox, that would suffice.

Alright guys, I'm finally about ready to get started. My progress will be slow as time and money are tight. Working with an '01.5 S4 Avant 6MT, stock except for an SSAC cat back. I've downloaded the M-box Hitachi .bin, and loaded it to ME7 logger - also tracked the changes made through the thread and made updates to the .bin file accordingly. Two questions...

Daz, your footnote in requested boost table says max at 14 PSI for stage 1 but Jeff's last requested boost profile maxed at 14.9. Where should I start once I flash the stage 1 file?

Nye, your list of logging variables contains things not in the bin file in the thread. Should I download a different bin file to create my csv from for logging or just use the variables that are there? I'm also assuming that the entries in your list that still have semicolons in front of them should not be logged. Please let me know where I'm off base, and I'll try to post some stock logs as well as logs of the file as far as it progressed by next weekend.

Thanks and let's get this project going again!

I'm not sure I like this approach, it is very confusing. I kinda think the req boost thing is a non-starter; we have to make people start with req load. for better or for worse.

Yea, there is a bunch of stuff that can be added by hand to the .ecu file which is not autodetected by ME7Info..

This is probably beyond the ability of a noob, but I'm including it here for completeness. Since this thread is SPECIFICALLY about the m-box, I suppose a complete .ecu file should be standardized on (and doesn't necessarily have to be the auto generated .ecu file)

I for one have no prob with req load. I plan on going further than Stage 1 and have read enough to be familiar with the concepts. Kinda think if I can't grasp how it works I shouldn't play with it. Don't know if I should be worried about hurting something (fueling, exhaust restriction, IAT cut, ect.) over a certain load threshold. I know we went that high to get load actual closer to the target.

Learning that will take me a minute or two. If we are keeping Stage 1 noob-friendly (and what a noob I am!) and using ME7 Logger for logging results, we newcomers will be limited by the variables generated by the bin files available to us that we can import. That said, can we get done what we need to get done with the variables pulled from Daz's Hitachi M-box bin? If not I'll either need some pointed instruction on how to text edit in the variables we need or how to convert your ecu or cfg files to something ME7 logger can use.

Bear with me brother - like speaking Greek to a redneck. Not a dumb redneck, just need a Greek friend to translate. If I understand, I can just add the variables to my .cfg file in ME7 logger in the order you listed them? The .ecu file though...never modified one with a text editor and I have minimal understanding of what I see when I open the .ecu file with Note Pad. If that's where you're telling me to go (hope you're not telling me to go somewhere else!)...

Alright folks - productive coupla weeks. Bench flashing setup done, Galletto cable ordered and received, C5 ECU converted to M-box and Stage 1 program flashed. Nyet, I couldn't find addresses in your files for 5 variables you listed: lamsoni_w, lamsoni2_w, uulsuv_w, ldimxr_w, and B_ldsus. They were not logged. Also, the address I found listed for B_ldipos (0x02) appeared to be incomplete - I included it in my ecu file at (0x0200). Please let me know if that is incorrect!

For those as green as myself that want to add logging variables in ME7L, here's what to do in plain English. In ME7L at "Create ECU File" select the .bin file you are running. That will create a corresponding .ecu file in ME7L. At "Create Template File" select the .ecu file you just made - that will yield a .cfg file in ME7L to select your logging variables from. In order to add additional logging variables you will need to add the new variable into both the .ecu file you created (with the address where it resides) and into your .cfg file to select for logging.

Full .csv files attached for two 3rd gear pulls at 2500 - 6500. Boost shown roughly correlates to 89% of LDRXN that IOP limits request to...where shall we go from here?

Honestly, not much more. We are almost out of injector duty cycle. We could sacrifice some fuel for boost but I'm unsure that is safe. I know other stage 1 files run a lot more boost at 14.7 .. but I don't know if that's a good idea.

If I'm reading this right should be safe in duty cycle at lower RPM? The duty cycle is high over 6K RPM, but looks like it would handle more boost down low if we keep boost taper the same. I would like to get rid of that load request drop at cam changeover, and it looks like there's plenty of injector cycle to play with enrichment under 6K. That would allow us to fine tune timing and fuel to keep knock away. I'm running 93 octane though, don't know how safe that would be for the 91 guys...

Why not do like most of the OTS tunes did and hit a higher PR at low airflow then taper off.

Yes, absolutely, we can request more boost down low. I thought he was referring to HP...

I think the practical limit for K03s is around 2.3 PR.

In real life (MAP) numbers, I am unsure of the pressure drop over stock ICs, but at low RPM hopefully it isn't terrible.

I'd be comfortable with 2.3 until 4000 rpm and then start tapering.  That looks to put the airflow in the vicinity of 400 cfm total, with stock IC pressure drop between 2-3 psi.

Unfortunately that puts us at 16-17 psi... which is close to where we are currently.

Much less if you assume intake drop of 1 psi (which puts us at 14psi)..

Unless my math is wrong.

I'm comfortable with 17 psi prior to accounting for the pressure losses.  I think even if the compressor were seeing 19 psi at 4000 rpm it would still be on the map and operating at good efficiency. 

http://www.myaudis4.com/2014/05/03/stock-fats/

But if 15-16 psi MAP were all we wanted to do I'd be fine with that as well.  It just seems that stopping at 12-13 would be very conservative.

I'm working with a 551T a6 2.7t currently. I'm seeing issues with the ASR turning on limiting power until a hard ASR code pops on (ASR light permanent then power is consistent. Maybe RLVMXN/RLVSMXN is the issue? Although I didn't think 14psi would exceed torque limiter in those maps. I'm not seeing any Cel's regarding the torque control limits.

With the ESP button pressed (ESP disabled) you should not get any ASR.

Italian tuned KFMIRL to 110% of stock and used berTTos's KFMIOP interpolator to generate new map with bottom of X axis averaged at 13.05 and last 2 columns at 87% and 100% of max load request in KFMIRL. Matched new KFMIOP X axis with X axis in KFZWOP and KFZWOP2 timing maps. So essentially have generated a matched KFMIRL and KFMIOP set where the KFMIOP map requests the load that I'm shooting for (as a % of LDXRN map). Still need to back off timing to get rid of that knock at 5K rpm. Car feels great, like a different personality but still getting limited load result. Suggestions on where to go from here? Nyet, can you elaborate on your last suggestion of flattening KFP maps at 3K & up?

Your mifa/misol is pretty low, might need to tweak KFPED a bit, or bring up KFMIRL in the lower torque request areas...

Don't forget the INPUT to KFMIRL is mifa/misol.

You're only at a max of 75% on mifa, which corresponds to what you have in irl/iop and the load values you are seeing.  Log mrfa_w (Driver Requested Relative Torque) as well to see what that is.

This is a summary of my work thus far.

First thing was to raise the rev limiter, NMAX, to 7000 rpm and NMAXF (RPM DTC limit) to 300 rpm over NMAX:

(http://www.myaudis4.com/tuning_images/nmax.png)


Next I adjusted the Pedal Position for Desired AFR (LAMFA Axis).

Stock values are 0.5, 0.6, 0.7, 0.8, 0.9, 1.0 and they are changed below to 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 97.5

(http://www.myaudis4.com/tuning_images/corrected_afr.PNG)

The desired AFR is altered in the last two columns (90, 97.499) from 3000 rpm and above, enriching the mixture from 14.7 to 12.5.

Next was modifying LDRXN to alter the boost profile, raising it slightly from the stock profile.

(http://www.myaudis4.com/tuning_images/nef5/nef5_boost.png)

Then some timing adjustments.  On the left side are the original tables and on the right are the current values.  For KFZW2 I lowered the values slightly to try and eliminate the ignition retard that was occurring around 2000-2500 rpm.  For KFZW I raised some of the timing values to try and have a smoother transition around 3500-4000.

(http://www.myaudis4.com/tuning_images/nef7/nef7_timing_before_after.jpg)

And lastly, a comparison of this tune versus the baseline stock file and a pull from a different APR chipped S4.

This is the boost curve I'm thinking of shooting for, based off the MAP reading.

Aha. It is very cold.

I think you want to flatten KFTARX so it doesn't pull load under 20C (note that this isn't a good idea when running near map limit, because the load->boost temp dependent calculation can send your req boost over the MAP limit if you aren't careful when it is cold - but for stage 1 it is no big deal. if anything you'll get more hp when it is cold)

What Nye is trying to say is that we have increased the amount of boost that's being requested, but not told the ecu what it's going to take to achieve the new goal. The next step is increasing the values in DIMX to reflect what it'll take to hit the boost we want.

I might be late to the party, but the last log shows boost actual following boost desired quite closely.  DIMX and the other PID tables are fine how it is.  There's a load limiter that's being hit.

Forgive me, I was looking at the wrong lines.. Yes... something needs to be tweaked in the PID tables to make your actual line up with desired. 

What does your WG duty cycle variables look like in the log?  I usually log ldtvm (WastegateDutyCycle) and ldtvr_w (WastegateDutyCycleBeforeLin) to determine if I should change something in DRL, or in DIMX.

I say shortened because around 4500 an anomalous event occurred and I am still uncertain as to what it was.  Need to see if I ran something over, popped an IC hose, or something else, but WGDC instantly dropped to 0.  It probably won't be until tomorrow evening that I can get around to investigating further.

Possible positive deviation limp?

In any case, before you continue logging you need to add the various PID variables to your setup, particularly I max and the various I limiter adaptations.

I've read this thread over and over and decided to start building my own tune. I've got a 6-Speed, M-Box (converted from A) S4, exactly what this thread was intended for. I'll throw a kink into the mix and say that I'm tuning at 9000 feet elevation, which I believe has effected my tuning quite a bit (especially for these Boost (in PSI) Calculations). I've coded EGTs and Rear O2s out per the wiki.
Car info:
-2000 S4; 154K, Engine refreshed and resealed at 146k) 6 Speed, converted to MBox with Bosch MAF.
-Piggie DPs (rear O2's removed)
-2.5" custom catback with magnaflow muffler
-Custom 3" Intake (Bosch MAF)
-RS4 Clutch
-710N Diverter Valves

As a newbie tuning my S4, this is what I see.. So I do know that these desired boost numbers in PSI are just estimates. So I began with logging stock and moving along with the thread and then I kind of deviated with my requested load and boost numbers. I decided to do this because when I actually log, my requested boost levels are much lower than the "requested boost (in PSI)" within Tunerpro. I also noticed my engine load is not nearly what is actually being requested.. I'm not sure why this is happening. I was thinking maybe it had to do with some of the requested load tables etc.. but none of them are even close to the loads I'm getting..

I've attached the CSV.

Don't worry about actual load not meeting requested. BTW I dont see any requested load in your logs...

You can definitely get away with a bit more req load.

Ah I must have missed it. My LDRXN looks like this. I know these are maximums, but I'm not getting anywhere close..


111.35   123.40   135.47   166.50   173.39   176.84   178.57   173.39   171.68   170.98   170.30   168.21   161.68   155.11   150.99   144.78

I did some tweaking of KFMIRL and used berTTos interpolator to get KFMIOP. Hoping that will help a bit.

I've attached my most recent log. Some things of mention:

-I'm getting timing retard, namely on cyl 4. I will address this as soon as I smooth out the boost.
-Seems like my requested vs. actual boost is pretty close per my logs.. Although it's no where near whats being requested per LDRXN
-Requested load vs. actual load is close.. but I can't seem to pinpoint exactly where these are coming from. I know its a combination of things, but how do I increase that to say follow closer to my LDRXN. Per the tuning wiki, at WOT the ECU typically follows those values. I think I'm hitting a load limit somewhere, and I can't seem to pinpoint it..

Stock KFMIOP is fine for stage 1. However, KFMIRL needs to request enough load at 80% torque request.

He won't get deviation from that. Not unless the MAF reading is way too coincide with actual boost.

I'm pretty sure wgdc is not near 95%, but let me get a better set of data before taking more action.  I had upped IMX previously, mentioned in this post (http://nefariousmotorsports.com/forum/index.php?topic=6695.msg73090#msg73090) and shown below, do you think it needs more work potentially?

If you guys could include the 'why' it might make this discussion more educational.  Just saying raise this, log that, doesn't tell the reader the reason for doing these things and leaves a person with just following the step-by-step without the benefit of knowing why things are being done.

Post logs and I will explain with graphs. Also, review the tuning page:

Quote
If your actual boost is not meeting requested boost, you may have to increase the PID I limit for 850 and 1000mBar. In general, you want KFLDIMX to follow what you expect your WGDC to be in the steady state, so after peak boost, you should set this to where you want the WGDC to settle. Note that PID trims (I-Regulation adaptation) may alter this limit.

Once D is zero, and P is no longer changing, I+P is steady state. If I is too low, you'll have persistent underboost, regardless of P, since as it approaches 0 (lde=0) I represents the sole contributor to wgdc.. Always post the logs, and I can post graphs showing what is wrong. Also, google "integrator windup" in the PID control context.

The main thing to realize is that the PID trims are all done via altering the I-limit... which means the I limiter (along with the linearization map KFLDRL) is the primary place to do PID tuning.

Hey guys just wanted to throw my hat in for the effort.

2000 6mt car running the Bosch mbox software daz posted. So far I've done the AFR tweak, RPM tweak, and prelim boost tweak, I've been using the xdf Daz posted for Nefstage1 also did the post cat o2 tweaks from daz xdf as my car has a downpipe back exhaust with no cats.

I haven't tweaked Timing yet, but I'll be contributing my logs from here on as well.

I'm in Central FL, so we should be able to get some good warm weather info.


BTW just a dumb question but is it OK to switch xdf for the same tune IE: start on Nefstage1 then progress to a more open xdf once I need to explore other variables?

Post by: nyet on June 01, 2015, 10:33:54 PM
As you can see, I-Max is completely inappropriate for requested boost. It should (roughly) be the dc required to make requested at every point. Req boost is rising until 3000rpm, but i-max does the opposite. Then it starts tapering, but I-max is increasing.

So:

By 2600 rpm, we should be seeing requested boost, which is around 16psi.

If you look later in the graph (at 3100rpm) , 16psi requires around 82-83 wgc. At 2600, I-max is around 82, and given that Q2 is going to result in at least -3 or -4, we'll probably need an I-Max of around 85-86 at 2600 rpm.

By the time req boost is at its max (3000rpm), I-max is almost at its minimum! Given that we probably need at least 87ish dc to make 16 psi, I-max should be rising to match the requested boost.

Also, the requested boost should really not be increasing during late spool, it should really be flat (or tapering). This will make tuning the PID easier (since I will accumlate faster, it is more likely to follow i-max).

Finally, I have omitted linearization for the time being since it only complicates the discussion: suffice it to say the purpose is to have a normalized dc->actual boost curve.

That is to say, you need more DC up top for a given boost, so LDRL should be tuned such that a COMPLETELY flat pre-lin DC should result in a post-lin DC that is increasing sufficiently to keep the boost at a given PSI.

Ideally, when tuning i-max, you should be thinking about corresponding changes in LDRL accordingly. If you are finding you are having to have an increasing i-max to keep up with a flat boost request, instead of having a rising i-max, consider a rising LDRL instead.

Thanks Nye, great explanation of what's going on with that graph.  Funny part is that when I just looked at the boost curves I thought they didn't look too bad.

Going back over the past few comments it sounds like refining DIMX and KFLDRL are the way ahead?

Yes, although I think we may ALSO want to get req boost to be flat during spool instead of that odd slowly increasing ramp, to simplify PID tuning...

I don't want to try and change more than one thing at a time, how would you suggest I proceed?

Edit: How about trying to flatten the requested boost curve first?

therealnap0le0n, let me know if you are staying up with the changes, I think it would be best if we move along together making the same changes so as not to confuse the thread with multiple tune variants.

I got left behind at the first boost correction but that's ok I can catch up pretty fast as I'm getting more familiar with this it looks less like chinese. That being said it seems that we've exhausted the capability of the NefStage1 XDF and should proceed with a more complete one. I think at this point I prefer an XDF that is going to be using the bosch terms like you are using anyhow.

At the point I am at right now I'm trying to get all of the correct variables in my logs, and I've discovered a couple of weird instances.

1) I have logged using the ME7logger GUI and its boost Act seems to reflect what my PSIg ( The guage reads about 13psi )

2) Logging using VisualME7logger Boost Req and Act is reported a few PSI less than my PSIg (it reports about 10 - 11 psi with the tune set to 13.5psi~ )

3)I have no cats and with my factory tune had a CEL for 2ndry cat warm up/efficiency codes (duh), now that code is gone but i have 17522 oxygen sensor B1 S2 resistance too high intermit, could this be related to the emissions options I selected in the tune? I was under the impression for catless i should have converter diag unchecked, rear o2 unchecked, and post cat fueling correction checked based on the tooltips for these items.

4)At 12+ PSI the car starts to have a multiple miss fire, I need to check my plugs I think they are bkr6e with about 10k miles and I think a .025 gap

its been raining non stop so I'll pull my plugs either Tom after work or Thurs

here is a 2nd gear pull from this morning with VisualLogger

Edit: I think there's something wrong with the log that I provided because it seems to indicate my Abox files even though I definately used my M box files....

May as well do both, either way you're going to need more wgdc before the current peak req boost. Besides, I almost always tune imax, req boost, and ldrl in concert since they are intimately connected.

It is going to take very very long time if we can't multitask a bit. As it is, this is taking much longer than I originally envisioned.

I found that the last tweak to LDRXN had not been incorporated into his file.  Perhaps that is the culprit?  Aside from that all the other changes match up with what I have.

For flattening the boost curve, do you suggest raising ldrxn at the lower end to bring requested boost up?  I'm also thinking that holding a bit more boost mid to upper range is possible, near the top the injectors are close to maxing out so I'm fine with dropping down to around 10 psi in the 6000 rpm range, but it seems like that middle upper area could support a little more boost.

I think for the sake of safety we should leave a buffer of injector duty in the top end, even then the "fun" areas of driving tend to be the mid ranges.

one thing to remember though is tons of boost at low speed low RPM will strain the motor and ignition more. But I'm sure we can squeeze it a bit.

Yes, or twiddle with the KFURL path (load->boost) to make req boost flat with respect to req load.

In any case, cleaning up IMAX is way more important I think..

what we're the ldrxn values you used to create the new curve? I would like to be on the same page value wise but i cant get exact values from the curve

Based on the injector DC from the last logs I'm going to pull back on the top end boost a little more.  New curve for LDRXN in black, last is the red line.  New values shown in the table.

Updated the DIMX values slightly as well, dropping them a bit.

Got my ECU in and flashed the tune with the latest revisions.

3rd gear pull is here.

Note: When viewing in ECUplot, if I leave "filter data" unchecked the data reflects what I see in car ie: large boost spike at first throttle, if I filter data the spike disappears and my boost data differs from what my boost gauge reads.

Also unfiltered my Boost Act follows my Requested very closely, when I filter it the Act is much Different than requested.

You need to pay attention to the scales.

Additionally, start the log at 2000. DO NOT go wide open UNTIL it says "Press C to stop logging". This ensures that the logger has a connection, and is working when you go WOT so as not to miss the first part of the log.

Scales in ecuplot or tunerpro?

Also I'll log using The regular ME7logger as I think the VisualME7 logger is pulling the data differently.

That is because overboost is causing throttle cut, so the filter is cutting the run short. in 'configure filter' set "Minimum Throttle" to 20.

I max is WAY too high for your car, which is terrible, because it seems your hardware is VERY different from Flyboys. Not good.

Also, I am unsure of the source of that huge boost request spike.

Perhaps we each do a pull with N75 electrically disconnected to see what boost level results?   Make sure the difference is not attributable to hardware.

His exhaust does not have the catalytic converters where I have them, though mine are aftermarket.

wouldn't we need to leave it electronically connected and physically disconnect it? I'm not opposed to that.

Also did a pull this morning getting on the on ramp to work with the regular ME7Logger this time. Got a huge throttle cut at 5000 RPM much warmer this time too, I suspect my car is not going to make this easy on me.... but hey thats half the fun eh?

I think we could definitely use more cars to pull data from.

Too much IMX, as i've already explained :P
Please reread my posts.

You have a non-stock exhaust, which means you can't use the same imx as a bone stock s4 would. You are on your own. If you like, start a separate thread for remote tune help.

Nye, I'm on a non-stock exhaust too.  Realistically I don't think anybody with a bone stock S4 is going to be interested in this site.   A stage 2 S4 usually implies some exhaust upgrades if not IC's.  I'd like to see us try and work through it, and if it proves too difficult then branch off, but companies like APR and GIAC had to account for different hardware when they did this, I think it is at least worth a shot.

Here's the change I made to KFTARX, highlighted in red.  I split the difference between previous value and the column to the right, moving left, to scale the values down so as to have less boost with higher temps.

(http://www.myaudis4.com/tuning_images/nef12/nef-12_kftarx.png)

and the results with these last three changes above [LDRXN, DIMX, KFTARX] incorporated.  78F outside.

Nef-12 Datalog (http://www.myaudis4.com/tuning_images/nef12/me7log_20150609_nef12.csv)

Interestingly the car felt stronger at the top end despite not showing much difference in the acceleration curve.

Apologies for leading you down the garden path - I'd rather not mess with KFTARX just yet.

Hows this: Let's get LDIMX dialed first... bring it back down a bit so you don't get all that overshoot. Put KFTARX back (sorry, my bad) and tweak LDIATA as daz suggested once we get a sane IMX at a given operating point.

given safe limits I'm all for testing the community tune so we can come to a "suitable" for most tune, and then through the learning I've done with this I'll hopefully be able to massage my personal file to my cars needs.

Let's work on LDIMX first and not get too ADHD on the other variables.

A slight digression here, but I think it is relevant to the discussion:

Their stage 1 was ALL over the map, and if you'll recall, people had all sorts of throttle cut issues when they deviated from the stock exhaust (piggies, high flow cats etc) even a little (APR and GIAC had no idea what KFDLULS was, lol).

Hence, "throttle cut defender", the stupid accel pedal stopper, etc.

The IMX adaptation system was never good enough to compensate for these huge deviations...

I don't like the idea of dorking with KFTARX at this point (keep it flat, all 1's IMO). I'd use LDIATA if we're sure it's temperature related, leave request alone, just fix the PID.

The problem with a flat KFTARX is that you'll have rising req boost as temps go up...

The changes I made by and large were a shift toward 1, so I'll leave KFTARX be for now.

Feel free to do several iterations. IMX is relatively safe to move around wherever you want at these boost levels.

Here's with DIMX lowered a little and I also slightly altered the LDRXN to not request full load quite so fast.  I'll post those changes soon.

There's three partial third gear pulls, the last is interesting in that it starts at low rpm and boost never overshoots but the two prior that start at a later rpm do.  What's the recommended way to counter that?

the last is interesting in that it starts at low rpm and boost never overshoots but the two prior that start at a later rpm do.  What's the recommended way to counter that?

Tune Q2... now, Q2 is a tricky beast, pay close attention to the axis...

The RPM axis is clear: if you get different overshoot depending on RPM position, vary Q2 with RPM

The other axis (lde, iirc) is not so clear: it allows you to schedule the Q2 gain depending on lde; that is to say, you can make Q2 bigger or smaller long before actual meets requested, or JUST as lde nears zero..

But the D component from Q2 is already proportional to how "fast" lde is changing (e.g. spool), so counter intuitively, if you have a lot of overshoot on fast spool, but not slow spool, you may want to increase Q2 for LOW lde.

Conversely, if you have overshoot on slow spool, but not fast spool, you want to DECREASE Q2 for LOW lde.

You can move the whole thing up and down by toying with IMX, of course. Typically, it is easier to just make IMX very conservative so you dont overshoot, so you can keep Q2 low. You might give up a bit of spool, but it is likely better to have undershoot than uncontrollable boost oscillations (which you will ALWAYS have on overshoot.. that is the nature of PIDs).

Now, keep in mind that on top of this, you also have the IMX trims going on.. but if lde is never that big for extended periods of time, the ECU should not be trimming IMX much.

Post by: nyet on June 11, 2015, 07:16:35 PM
Now that I look at your graphs though:

You can see that D is basically zero when we most need it to control the overshoot....

this is because your req boost is rising just as actual is about to meet requested. That means the slope (derivative) of lde is smaller than if req boost was flat.

This is why it is almost always easier to tune Q2 when req boost is flat near expected overshoot....

Ok, it sounds like the first order of business is still to try and get that requested line to flatten out.  I'll keep working LDRXN to make that happen and then revisit the other changes to DIMX, and possibly Q2.

Looking good! BTW instead of fiddling with IMX to clean up the overshoot, you could increase req load until you get a good req boost taper from 16 psi at 2700 on down, etc. Not sure where that is on the compressor map, though.

I'm comfortable with that boost level at low airflow.  I'm hoping we are going to be keeping the tune smooth, I think there's some benefit to showing how to develop a refined tune versus one that aims to max out the turbo's and fueling.

What would the highest request be on stock set up while remaining efficient? I think 17-18psi max without overworking the turbos

We would be trying to maximize low airflow/ low rpm power due to hardware limits up high

Not yet.  LDRXN is below the max IRL values, but if I am to keep pushing the requested boost up it looks likely that LDRXN will exceed the max IRL values, and I thought they were the cap for LDRXN.

I bumped up LDRXN a little more and dropped DIMX some.  The resulting req and boost curve look very much like the last one I posted.  Thought I'd give that route another try before abandoning the methodology and strictly try to raise the requested line to meet actual.  Since the results weren't very progressive I'll look at a more aggressive LDRXN curve around the boost ramp range.

I haven't been keeping up with your latest changes Jeff since last time we spoke (far too busy with work/family), but just for reference I was having that 20PSI spike on initial throttle, I dropped I max down to stock and my car now goes to 16psi ( +1 psi of request ) very briefly, and then follows requested to the dot until about 5500rpm where the taper continues to follow requested at +1 psi again. You may not need as much DIMX as we intially thought.

I'll keep that in mind as I progress.  For the moment I'm trying to up the requested line as Daz & Nye suggested.  This'll be my last update for a couple weeks as I have some other activities to attend to.  Here's the new LDRXN, black line, and below it the results (csv file) it is producing.

I have not messed with DIMX since revision 12 A.  I'm going to see if I can rein in the overboost from 4000-5000 rpm by dropping DIMX a little there.

Thanks, that change worked out pretty fast.

I have a wideband wired up, I just did not log it on this latest time out.  The AFR has been quite rich, I was wondering if the ambient temps were playing into that.  I'll log AFR next time out and post the results.  It looks to me like some fuel could be pulled out.  Also the boost is dropping pretty rapidly after 4000 rpm, with the intent of not running out of fuel.

Don't touch DIMX.  Your last logs look close to perfect as far as the boost profile goes.  I wouldn't touch a thing, but if you must, just pull a little from kfldrl and call it good.

Thus far we have not touched KFLDRL (Map for linearization of boost pressure), not even mentioned it or what it does.  Could you explain what it does and why it would be the table to change, as opposed to DIMX, and how we might go about modifying the table?  My hope is that we can educate along the way, not just show a step by step to making a tune.

Stock KFLDRL should be fine, it is calibrated for K03s with stock wastegates. Discussion of KFLDRL is already all over the rest of this site (not to mention the wiki, and any other place which discusses PIDs) and IMO beyond the scope of this thread.

I doubt AFR is much different now than in this post (http://nefariousmotorsports.com/forum/index.php?topic=6695.msg75842#msg75842) since all I have been working on is the initial boost rise.

Assuming that is the case, some further changes to timing are in order?

Need to look at I-limit adaptations to determine if this statement is correct. They can disguise very large discrepancies.

Negative. DRL represents an ideal calibration for the stock wastegates. It should not be touched in this case.

Lean it out, add more timing. If we can do that EGT's will come down, we can leave TABGBTS relatively low (I'd recommend 750, maybe 800C) and maintain enrichment, but only as needed. I'd also suggest adding a few more variables to the cfg file:

tabgm            ;{EGTModelBeforeCat}                ; {Abgastemperatur vor Kat aus Modell}
b_tabgbts       ;{CondEGTForPartProtection}        ; {Bedingung Abgastemperatur für Bauteileschutz überschritten}

3. TABGBTS (EGT Threshold for component protection) is not something we have touched thus far.  Current value is 499.99C, what's the reason for raising it?  If EGT's are going to come down with the changes to fuel & timing why would we need to raise the EGT threshold?
4. I'll add tabgm, tabgm2, and B_tabgbts to the config file.

That's what the value in the table is, but at the tail pipe it's much richer.  I'm going to modify the table to get the actual reading closer to 11.5.  If things look good at 11.5 I can try and lean it out to 12.5.

This is with TABGBTS raised to 750C.  Also did some more tweaking of LDRXN and DIMX.  I also complicated matters by putting higher flowing aftermarket IC's on in place of the stock ones.  They don't look to have messed things up.

No. But might want to numb BTS first to see where KR goes. Logging req AFR is hopefully accurate enough for that activity, and making sure IDC doesn't exceed 95.

Yep. This. But only after we have fuel where we want it.

Well, unfortunately, EGT and timing are interrelated, so we kinda need to numb one (possibly temporarily) so we can tune the other, then see where we end up after.

I made it to the second post here (http://nefariousmotorsports.com/forum/index.php?topic=141.0), and get that using BTS for adjusting fueling is wrong.  I've not waded through the following 29 pages of posts to see if there are dissenting viewpoints.  Took a look at the S4 tuning Wiki and it's not real clear there, seems to only refer to BTS when needing more fuel, not less.

How do you suggest using BTS to lean the AFR slightly?  It looks to be just past 4500 rpm where I need to make some adjustments.

You should add requested AFR to this plot. It seems real AFR is too rich between 4500 and 6250 RPM (everything richer than 11:1 is just waste of fuel).

EDIT: When you compare requested AFR with real values you can decide what should be tweaked - maybe it is not requesting that much fuel but it is just poorly tuned from factory?

So leave it where it's at now?  I set it to 750C here (http://nefariousmotorsports.com/forum/index.php?topic=6695.msg76759#msg76759).

If that's the case, do I start modifying the KFLBTS table to alter AFR after the EGT protection (above TABGBTS threshold) kicks in?

I do not like those plots with multiple runs through rev range as I find them unreadable.
Also I am not so sure about it being purely BTS related as BTS could be responsible only for 5000-5500 RPM range (from Nyet's plot) while enrichment starts at 4500 and still takes place up to 6250 RPM.
To be honest I would try something else - disable BTS (setting TABGBTS to really high values) and set constant 0.75 lambda (of course it is rich, but as you disable BTS it should be set to safe value) in LAMFA for >90% torque request. Then I would tweak KFKHFM to get real values as requested (and reiterate for lower loads limiting maximum load). Then I would re enable BTS or any other fuelling method you have chosen to use. That way you know your real AFR will follow your desired settings for every engine speed and load.

It could also be KR enrich. In any case, I'm not sure further changes make much sense at this point; we're getting good timing, and seeing a bit of correction up top.

I don't see anything wrong with letting BTS do its thing either.

We are out of injector though, so perhaps dialing back the boost might be prudent. Then again, we have just enough to get a bit of effective BTS (although not all of it), so maybe it doesn't matter.

I don't see anything wrong with letting BTS do its thing either.
I also think the safety features (KR/BTS enrichment) should be left working in tune normally used but for proper fuelling calibration they only add complexity and we are not sure if fuelling works as expected. That is why I suggested disabling BTS (as we are not sure if it is due to BTS or something else) but use useless normally pig rich LAMFA fuelling and do some logs to be able to find if KFKHFM is properly tuned in stock form. AFAIK KR is not used in stock form so it should not affect fuelling but to be sure we could disable that too. After calibrating fuel so it does what is exactly requested in software both should be reenabled/tuned to suit our needs. IMHO anything richer that lambda 0.75/AFR 11:1 should be avoided in normal driving areas - such high enrichment might be only set in BTS for really large modelled EGTs (it also could be set as ATR last resort security value).

We are out of injector though, so perhaps dialing back the boost might be prudent. Then again, we have just enough to get a bit of effective BTS (although not all of it), so maybe it doesn't matter.
I do not agree as it is running IMHO too rich now. So if we set fuelling properly there still will be a margin for KR/BTS/ATR effective enrichment.

EDIT: Having so good logging capabilities we may just log all lambda values to be sure what is affecting real fuelling and from that work out why it is so rich now. That way we could also calibrate fuelling without disabling any security functions. IMHO it is just important so real AFR will follow requested value (it does not matter if it is from LAMFA/KR/BTS/ATR). Next exercise would be to check how far is modelled EGT from real values...

Yea, i thought so.. Really great to see the logs reflect that modeled EGT is pretty damn accurate!

I know nobody wants to see 11 or lower AFR, but with EGTs climbing towards 800, it may be prudent, especially on pump gas on very low timing.

In any case, i wonder if we're seeing REAL EGT corrections from the RS6 sensors (not BTS but ATR). I've never logged a car equipped in this fashion, but it would explain why enrich seems to be happening sooner than expected.

If so, we are now out in the weeds and off the stage 1 reservation, unless we agree numbing ATR is relatively harmless for those running stock NB EGTs... and, incidentally, numbing ATR is one way of coding out NB EGTs which are notoriously unreliable and prone to failure.

After 5750 rpm the desired AFR starts climbing, which looks to be what would be expected based upon the KFLBTS table.  Would setting the target AFR to 11.5 between 4500-5500 keep it from going as rich as it is?

Just a bump in ldrxn mirroring yours and drop in DIMX due to the massive overshoot I was getting. Although my timing logs aren't as clean looking as yours either, my car is displaying more knock retard than yours and cam angle isn't showing a flat line with a pronounced change over either.  It's amazing how differently our cars have reacted to the same changes

I give you guys a lot of credit, refining these tunes is not easy, and I fear when my turbos decide to eat it and I go frankenturbo I'll be paying one of you guys for your time vs trying to build a stage 3 tune myself. My confidence is just not that high

Yea, i thought so.. Really great to see the logs reflect that modeled EGT is pretty damn accurate!

I know nobody wants to see 11 or lower AFR, but with EGTs climbing towards 800, it may be prudent, especially on pump gas on very low timing.
So if modelled EGTs are close to real than IMHO BTS should be retuned as 800*C is just to early for such big intervention. The other thing which should be done is to try to readjust (I mean advance) timing and check what will happen.

In any case, i wonder if we're seeing REAL EGT corrections from the RS6 sensors (not BTS but ATR). I've never logged a car equipped in this fashion, but it would explain why enrich seems to be happening sooner than expected.
I do not think so as ECU do not know it is using wideband EGT sensors IMHO (or I just missed the fact ATR was adjusted). Still 800*C is too early to drop AFRs below 11:1 IMHO.

If so, we are now out in the weeds and off the stage 1 reservation, unless we agree numbing ATR is relatively harmless for those running stock NB EGTs... and, incidentally, numbing ATR is one way of coding out NB EGTs which are notoriously unreliable and prone to failure.
If narrowband EGTs are so bad maybe it would be better for those who still have them to deactivate ATR but make BTS over reactive for really high temperatures (like setting to FBSTABGM to > 1). Still I would try to log all fueling request to find what is going on before taking decision what should be done. If in fact it is due to KFLBTS I would try setting it to more "sane" values and use FBSTABGM to alter enrichment according to EGT if you really need TABGBTS set to relatively low (and safe) value.

Not going to happen on pump gas if we are already at 11 and correcting.

1.  Some more minor adjustment to LDRXN, raised a little at the start to try and get requested to match actual.
2.  Bumped up timing a fair amount (KFZW and KFZW2)
3.  Increased TABGBTS to 800C.
4.  Ambients temps were a good bit cooler this evening 66F, versus the 76-82F it's been recently.

Here's AFR:

Welp. It's definitely enriching at 800C :)

You can numb BTS further ... or.... not sure where to go.

Me, I have BTS set to not go below 11.5.. but I hesitate to unilaterally recommend that.

So it seems FlyboyS4's changes dropped EGT a bit (due to advanced timing I suppose).
Flyboy, how is your FBSTABGM set now?
Perhaps the proper solution is to leave KFLBTS as it is but scale it by FBSTABGM (set to < 1 for 800-850 or even wider range of temperatures)?

EDIT:
Me, I have BTS set to not go below 11.5.. but I hesitate to unilaterally recommend that.
It all depends on how you set your fuelling. If BTS is used purely as last resort component protection it could be left even at lambda 0.7 (0.75 might be better if ATR is still used, because otherwise ATR will be unable to do anything). In this situation if you use KR based fuelling it might be wise to set it to lambda ~0.8 for such high load and high engine speed areas (I would not set to anything higher than 0.85 for lower engine speeds and no ignition advance correction).

FBSTABGM ought to still be stock, at this point I don't know what it is, so we've not modified it.

I'm puzzled why BTS is intervening with the AFR to such a great extent now, but when it was set at the stock 499C level, like back with the Nef 4 revision (http://www.myaudis4.com/tuning_images/nef4/relogged/), it wasn't.  The EGT's were above 500C from the start of the pull.  Is it the lower engine load?  If that were the case it seems as though the exhaust gas temperature is not the primary concern for driving this behavior.

I understand it might be questionable to tell people to change FBSTABGM in Stage1 tune but as we already changed TABGBTS IMHO we should tune BTS to our needs fully.
So what is FBSTABGM? FBSTABGM is a map (4x1) which is used to scale KFLBTS enrichment according to modelled EGT temperature.
So you will find ECU requests lambda values set in KFLBTS only if for given modelled EGT FBSTABGM is set to 1. If its value is lower or value read from the map is lower due to interpolation requested lambda will be higher. If FBSTABGM values are > 1 requested lambda is lower.
For example:
Code:
FBSTABGM:
800*C 850*C 900*C 950*C
 0.0   0.5   1.0   1.25
Code:
TABGBTS: 750*C
ECU would not use KFLBTS enrichment up to 800*C despite having TABGBTS set lower. Between 800 and 850*C there will be slight enrichment depending on exact modelled EGT. At 850*C it would use exactly half of value in KFLBTS, so if for given load/engine speed KFLBTS has value of 0.8 (lambda) it will request 1-((1-0.80)*0.5) = 0.9. Between 850 and 900*C enrichment will be scaled between 0.5 and 1 (for 900*C it will use exact KFLBTS values) and above 900*C enrichment will be bigger than KFLBTS values (from 950*C it will be 1.25*KFLBTS value, so for KFLBTS value of 0.8 it would request 1-((1-0.80)*1.25) = 0.7).

That is why I opted to use leaner values in KFLBTS and enrich further basing on modelled EGT temperature as you found it is not far from real EGT. FBSTABGM is IMHO good to use this approach.

EDIT:
I'm puzzled why BTS is intervening with the AFR to such a great extent now, but when it was set at the stock 499C level, like back with the Nef 4 revision (http://www.myaudis4.com/tuning_images/nef4/relogged/), it wasn't.  The EGT's were above 500C from the start of the pull.  Is it the lower engine load?  If that were the case it seems as though the exhaust gas temperature is not the primary concern for driving this behavior.
I am still asking if we are sure it is in fact BTS enrichment. If I were you I would double check ATR and KR enrichments.
Have you logged all lambda requested values? Could you plot them?

This.

They're all documented in the FR, the tuning wiki, and in my .ecu file which I have posted several times in this thread. Don't make me dig for all three yet again.

Also, obviously we need dlamatr and dlamatr2 to see if BTS is truly from BTS or ATR

What could cause (high injector ms/ low DC) at lower rpms? My injector logs look so different then Flyboy

Looking at your old logs, compared to one of my logs, I cannot figure why for the same IAT, and MAP, your MAF reading is much lower.

EDIT: I wonder if the airflow difference traces back to the Bosch (yours) versus Hitachi (mine) MAF sensors?

Leaned about a half a dozen cells in KFLBTS, new AFR curve looks like:

I've spent some time looking at your log Nef 13 vs the last one I had taken comparing variables one by one and it seems that my results are more similar than previously thought. The auto range of ECUxPlot was making it weird for me.


I'm trolling the previous pages of this thread to incorporate  the last changes.

Is it any different that before? It is still pig rich from 4500 RPM so your fuelling issue should not be due to KFLBTS but it might still be BTS related...
We really need all lambda requestes logged and plotted as for now we are tuning blindly IMHO. I am quite sure that after checking which lambda request is responsible for this situation further logging would be needed to find real cause of that issue.

It's about a half a point leaner than before, which is about what I would have expected given the minimal degree of change that I made.

I don't think the discussion is a digression to the topic.  It's raising other considerations related to trying to modify a tune.  I hope we're aren't trying to make a tune that works only on my car, because that's a waste of time.

Have also:
1. Upped LDRXN a little more at the start.  Think this is about it for changes to this.
2. Altered DIMX pretty significantly.  Is this where I start modifying the Q2 term to control the overshoot?
3. Added some timing to lower engine load regions.
4. Logged the two variables I mentioned above, are those what should have been logged for the BTS work?
5. Accelerated in 6th to about 3000 rpm to see what would happen.

Thanks, I'll add those variables.

Regarding LDRXN, below 2000 rpm it's almost stock like, I'm wondering if the abrupt spike upward is causing the lower rpm part throttle drivability to suffer.  Part throttle acceleration is not particularly smooth.  I'm wondering if I raise LDRXN a bit more in the region below 2000 rpm if it might smooth out some of the abruptness?

What's I find interesting is that the EGT curve is nearly the same for each tune, so apparently something else is also coming into play to drive the AFR rich with the most recent revisions.  I guess that would possibly be the higher engine load.  BTS variables have been added to my config file for the next time out.

yea, I will pull imax down uniformly. I did notice the difference in bts enrichment in his car vs mine. As of right now I'm running an mbox bin that has the MAF adjustments for a Bosch sensor but it is not the bin Daz posted in the beginning of the thread.

Your DIMX is too high everyware. What is the baropressure when those logs are taken?? If it is low - much under usual - you can expect when baropressure raises your overboost is gonna be even higher and car gonna run leaner.
Turn down DIMX from 2700-5000rm you will gain some fuel IDC and overfueling is EGT protection. As suggested BTS upp to 800 and do LOG again.
Also i would add more fuel in spool.

My car is not overboosting with these settings, it's therealnap0le0n that is seeing the overboost. 

I have TABGBTS set to 800C.

What method do you recommend for adding fuel during spool?  Thus far we've addressed fueling via LAMFA and only just started to consider possibly using BTS.

IIRC your last few logs had significant overshoot.

What method do you recommend for adding fuel during spool?  Thus far we've addressed fueling via LAMFA and only just started to consider possibly using BTS.

Unfortunately BTS can't really be used during spool.. your only choice is LAMFA.

You do overshoot all over the place. And it leans your AFR. Use FKKVS for adding fuel before and under spool.
Look at your injectors  where in ms it comes in time. Then you tune FKKVS in those regions.

Ok.  Like I said above, I went back to the Nef-12G DIMX settings that got this feedback (http://nefariousmotorsports.com/forum/index.php?topic=6695.msg76624#msg76624), but I can resume making changes if needed.

Unfortunately BTS can't really be used during spool.. your only choice is LAMFA.

Ok.  I'll be unable to do any updates for a couple of weeks but will plan some additional changes to implement shortly.

you're correct but I've been working on my tune as we go along and have managed the overshoot a bit with stock DIMX settings. I've been hesitant to post logs of those runs as to not clutter the thread with alternative settings from flyboy In order to really compare a "universal" community tune.

 I think flyboy will be taking some time for personal things so I'll try to continue where he left off and between the two cars come up with a happy medium. I'll take some time tonight to reread the boost PID section so I can tackle that,

now that this is getting really in-depth what are we considering "stage 1" and "stage 2" of the community tune? And are we going to take on a "stage 3" major hardware upgrades tune ie: turbo, injector, etc?

I have TABGBTS set to 800C.

What method do you recommend for adding fuel during spool?  Thus far we've addressed fueling via LAMFA and only just started to consider possibly using BTS.

BTW I don't think we should raise TABGBTS any higher. May need to drop to 11.7-11.5 during spool all the way to redline... which means we will also be out of injector.

You really don't want high egts on those K03s, esp on a short pull like that. Row through the gears and .... :(

I guess that would possibly be the higher engine load.

What I'm not understanding is how the EGT's are now being characterized as high, but I was seeing the same EGT's at the same rpm's when the tune boosted to 11-12 psi.  It seems that having high EGT's are o.k. if the engine load is low, but if the engine load is high the same EGT's are bad.  I don't see where the distinction between engine loads alters the real world physical outcome, aside from the table being setup to respond differently for different engine loads which creates the different outcome.  I'm apparently missing something here.

EGT's are not high, they are  more than acceptable. Don't touch FKKVS, that's terrible advice.

IF we have room for more advance, EGT's will drop. If we don't, It is what it is.

You should not be touching FKKVS on stock fueling (unless of course you use it to compensate for meth, but that's a whole new ballgame). If actual~requested, and you want enrichment, request it. What you're talking about is only suitable if actual!=requested. In all other applications, this is still questionable. Saying FKKVS is best for small corrections is shortsighted. Find where the error is coming from, fix it there or you very well may end up with a compounded error elsewhere.

Why touch fkkvs if actual is following requested just fine?

You wouldn't. I can only assume he's getting hung up on his own (limited) experiences rather than practical application.

The topic here isn't to correlate actual with req AFR, but rather, trying to decide on what kind of EGTs are ok.

1% here or there isn't going to change EGTs any, especially if we are talking about moving requested AFR around by far more.

Ofcourse. That is correct.
I was focused on spool inrichmant. That has nothing to do with high EGTs.

Again, there is no reason. If anything we want to retard ignition a bit and lean it out to keep egt's up to aid in spool. This isn't needed for K03s, and we're straying off mission here-lol.

I'll defer to dd on the egt issue. I'm fine with numbing BTS to keep AFR from dipping too low if he is.

Other than that i'd say we're pretty close to done.

What would be nice is a dyno at this point. stock vs tune. same dyno, same day.

You mentioned this a few times now:

Where are you seeing the AFR being too lean?

I would aim at 12AFR at spool and raise it gradually to 12.5 all the way.  In a sence coming in cooler throu the rpms.
I have tried both lean spool and rich, and rich has worked better for me as lean cosed loosing Power.
The Point is - there is more ways than one doing this.

I dont see your AFR leaning out now, but my Point was as i asked:  What was baro pressure when you took these logs?? Medium for where you live, high or low?
I am at almoust sea level where middle baro p is 1000mbar. If i tune a car on low baro pressure ex 980 mbar, i have too consider that it will be Days that baro is 1020mbar. That will couse a lot of overboost if i tuned the car with some overboost at low baro pressure day. Bc the N75 takes the ATM p as a refference.
This will couse AFR the lean out of course.

Cheers

I have seen MAF scaling completely wack timing tables, which affects EGT's, which then affects BTS, but I don't think that's what's being referenced here.

MAF scaling will also move load around, which also changes the EGT model.

Well as FR says gas for bts will be scaled by mass air flow (or calculated) if u r running wot. So miss scaled maf will affect bts badly

Just to close the loop on this, I've not been logging barometric pressure, in the past it looked to me that at idle the boost pressure desired was around barometric so I stopped logging baro.  I did about a dozen logs over the two week span so I would expect the barometric pressure did not remain unusually high or low consistently through that time period.

Can you guys take a look at my timing logs from this as well and see if they are within acceptable levels?


Just to keep in mind, I live in FL so my elevation is very low and the air is VERY thick and muggy right now. This log was taken in the afternoon about 90 degrees F out.

I'm puzzled by the very different numbers being shown in the Neftune5 data versus the Nef14b data that I logged.  Boost level is nearly the same, IAT's are close, yet MAF numbers and IDC are quite a bit higher (around 20%) for my car, the resultant acceleration curves are very similar.

It seems that one impact of the higher fueling is slightly greater but less varied timing curve.  If the MAF scaling is possibly the cause of the difference I do have an RS4 MAF that I could try on my car.

By the looks of the boost profile I'm guessing that's about where you stopped.  You may want to press on and start adding the changes that I put on the Stage 2 page (http://www.myaudis4.com/stage-2/).  For a bit there at the end of the Stage 1 phase and shift to Stage 2 I lost track of the sequence that additional tables were being changed.  There are probably a couple of tables, like KFMIOP, KFLDHBN and KFMLDMX, that were altered in the Stage 1 phase.

I need to compare notes with therealnap0le0n and make a post summarizing all of the changes made thus far.

Looking at your csv file it looks close to what I logged at that phase of development.  I noticed in the csv header that you have the Bosch MAF, and interestingly the MAF and IDC curves in your file are more similar to therealnap0le0n (Bosch MAF) than mine (Hitachi).  The only odd thing I noticed on first look through was some small intermittent spikes in both O2 sensor readings.  Nice job incorporating all the changes, nothing sticks out to me as being offtrack.

I know this thread is further from a basic stage 1 tune than I'm going to post here, so if you want to move this, go ahead.

here's the raw CSV from my first run after flashing my stage 1.

Critique's definitely welcomed, first timer and I followed flyboy's website for the basics.

I couldn't upload a file for some reason.. but here's a link

http://streetandtrack.ca/afterhours/tuning/s4/run2-jul26.csv
If you decide to press on feel free to contact me for help, I've noticed a few instances where the changes flyboy made didn't suit my car and having a 3rd vehicle will be great for a homogeneous tune as we will have more data points to compare.

I've been slammed at work but I'll see what my latest log shows and see about screen shots of my bin settings

I should note that my chassis is a B6, with a 2.7t swap.  It might change some values somewhere in the car profile of ecuxplot but I have not made those changes yet.

FlyBoy: that's exactly where I'm at as I wanted to get some real logs before pushing it further.  I have some "before" logs of 4 pulls I made on the stock modified M box file that daz provided on page 3 if those would be of interest.

nap0lean: I will be pushing forward with this, I still have all 4 cats and stock dp's but straight back after the cat's, which I don't think qualifies me to move to stage 2 just yet, so I'll be working on the stage 1 for a while.

I will make those changes on your stage2 page and get some readings.

*edit* I just had a look at the stage 2 changes and referenced my bin, I think I'm going to need nap0lean's input if those tables are related to MAF, considering my values are very very different from Flyboys who has 0's in lots of the cells.  I will keep reading as I have been doing and catch up on these changes and what they actually do, maybe it will all "click"

On that Stage 2 page the KFTARX table to the left only shows the delta values from stock.  The zeroes are where I did not make any changes from stock.  Only the locations circled in blue were changed.  The table to the right shows the KFTARX values I ended up with after applying the adjustments from the left table to the stock values.  Your screen shot looks to be the unaltered stock values.

I made the changes to my tables last night based off the Stage 2 portion of your website Flyboy, I just need to finalize the installation of my AEM wideband and boost gauges before I go any further as safety precautions.

Is that as up to date as it is right now at 15psi and modifying those tables? 

I'm going to get some more logging done to make sure my runs are consistent as they stand.  I went out for a drive last night and intended to do some logging, but was happy enough just to drive it so I didn't grab anything more.

My summary on that page is lagging, there have been about a dozen tweaks made since then.  The closer you get to where we are currently at the more fluid the changes become as we are trying different things to see the results produced.

This post (http://nefariousmotorsports.com/forum/index.php?topic=6695.msg77016#msg77016) has the last changes I made to LDRXN (boost profile) and a few other tables.  The discussion has wandered a bit since then so there are a lot of posts but not much change.  You may want to leave TABGBTS at the stock level as that is an area of uncertainty presently.  I think therealnap0le0n has incorporated these changes, with the exception of a lower DIMX setting, closer to stock.

Post by: therealnap0le0n on August 01, 2015, 06:37:08 AM
Yes the only deviation I have from Flyboy is DIMX is lower almost stock, and my timing tables are basicly stock as well. For what ever reason my car overboosted on initial ramp with extra DIMX and I had a ton of knock with altered timing.

As of right now my car decided to blow the lower control arm ball joint apart so its garaged for now, I bought a 2011 q5 as a daily two days ago. When I get the control arm in I can begin testing again

I'd like to try and understand why the MAF and IDC values are significantly different between my car and the other two presently active cars.  To bring our cars closer in setup I can swap back to the stock EGT sensors, and try a Bosch RS4 MAF.

What values did you use for LDRXN?  Your requested boost line is well below what I've got.  We've been pushing LDRXN up to try and get the requested line to match the actual boost.

Sure, I updated the first post with the bin that has the last changes.  I did notice the KFKHFM table is set to ones, which I don't see mention of in the thread, probably was a result of an off-forum discussion.

Thanks for posting it, I downloaded and modified the EGT and MAF sensor locations back to Stock and Bosch.  my car did NOT like that bin.

Started up fine, idled fine, I gave it a bit of gas to make sure it would respond nicely, and it stuttered and bucked a bit... took it around the block, same thing, 2nd gear a bit of gas to just get moving and it bucked HARD.  So I pulled back into the garage to reflash it back.

After that, I checked your latest LDRXN values and modified my latest file (the one with the big boost spikes that I posted) and reflashed and took some logs.  It feels smooth and strong (other than some weird issues where if I'm kind of half rolling it on and it doesn't bring boost on, N/A pull lol, need to do more logging and general driving though to begin to track this one down, happened 2 times in the span of 5 minutes of driving).


Here's a pull from the night, and I added that B_tabgbts to the logging.

I noticed you don't have tabgm2 in your config.

In general your results look close to mine.  Intake temps were greater for you. 

I think I need to return the KFKHFM table I'm using to the stock values before I make any more judgments about how my setup compares to yours.  You may want to follow therealnap0le0n's suggestion for DIMX and see if that doesn't help with the initial overshoot.

I modified my config to include tabgm2, I guess it's safe to just keep enabling items and never disabling them with new bins / configs? is there an upper limit to the number of items it can log at a time?

As for my intake temps, I'm not running the stock airbox from the b6 a4.  There's a "ram air" filter attached to the corrugated intake piping and it's sitting where the piping stops and probably sucking in hot air from the rad.  I'll look into my options to get cooler air from below into the intake.

I've lowered my DIMX back to the original values from the Mbox bin provided.  I will flash it this morning and grab some logs and upload before I leave town for the weekend. For transparency, these are the values that were suggested previously:

My boost profile returned to what it was before, where the requested boost was higher than the actual boost with only a slight spike at the peak.  I'm going to split the difference across DIMX in changed cells and log again, unless I should try something else?

Here's my logs for today, not sure what happened in a4-log1-aug7 with the power and torque curves, I ended up enabling one of the speed values to be logged and it whacked the whole thing.  Boost profile looks nice and I'll work on raising the actual boost up.

Today was a bit cooler in the morning than the last evenings I tested here in Ottawa, Canada for me, at 20C(68F) and 58% humidity.

I try to be mindful about not logging a lot of variables unnecessarily.  Stuff in your file like the coolant temp, maf voltage, airflow over the throttle body, cpu load, I'd drop those unless a reason comes up to log them.  It looks to me that during your pulls the selected gear is not reading correctly, you'll start in 3, it'll suddenly shift to 2, then a while later back to 3.

I think trying to massage DIMX to get the actual boost where you need it is a good path for now.  I've still been trying to get my setting just right, but the boost curve is doing what it's intended to.  There seems to be a difference in how your two cars boost responds with the same settings I'm using.

If you want to email me the bin you are using I can check to see where the differences are at.

Hitachi vs Bosch? Not that it should make much difference.

I'm going to adjust the DIMX values tonight or tomorrow night and re-flash my car to see what happens.

So I was looking at DIMX tonight, and compared it with your latest revision I had, and noticed that you had adjusted values in spots that I needed adjusting in to force more boost.

I ended up copying your values over to my bin and giving it a try, here's 2 runs:

http://streetandtrack.ca/afterhours/tuning/s4/a5-log1-aug12.csv
http://streetandtrack.ca/afterhours/tuning/s4/a5-log2-aug12.csv

Overall looking better, that spike isn't as high and it doesn't dip down as low afterwards.

Progress in a way.  I've been trying to chase down why there's a difference between the initial boost responses the three cars currently active in the tune have shown.  Looks like the N75 valve adjustment (http://www.myaudis4.com/2015/08/18/n75-valve-tuning-investigation/) may be the source.

Update: Adjusted DIMX with the new N75 setting.

Nice find!

BTW your I-limit still has a pretty odd shape compared to req boost.


Title: Re: Nefmoto community project: Stage1 2.7t ME7.1 S4 (APB 8D0907551M-0002)
Post by: nyet on August 21, 2015, 09:48:08 AM
As you can see, I-Max is completely inappropriate for requested boost. It should (roughly) be the dc required to make requested at every point. Req boost is rising until 3000rpm, but i-max does the opposite. Then it starts tapering, but I-max is increasing.

So:

By 2600 rpm, we should be seeing requested boost, which is around 16psi.

If you look later in the graph (at 3100rpm) , 16psi requires around 82-83 wgc. At 2600, I-max is around 82, and given that Q2 is going to result in at least -3 or -4, we'll probably need an I-Max of around 85-86 at 2600 rpm.

By the time req boost is at its max (3000rpm), I-max is almost at its minimum! Given that we probably need at least 87ish dc to make 16 psi, I-max should be rising to match the requested boost.

Also, the requested boost should really not be increasing during late spool, it should really be flat (or tapering). This will make tuning the PID easier (since I will accumlate faster, it is more likely to follow i-max).

Finally, I have omitted linearization for the time being since it only complicates the discussion: suffice it to say the purpose is to have a normalized dc->actual boost curve.

That is to say, you need more DC up top for a given boost, so LDRL should be tuned such that a COMPLETELY flat pre-lin DC should result in a post-lin DC that is increasing sufficiently to keep the boost at a given PSI.

Ideally, when tuning i-max, you should be thinking about corresponding changes in LDRL accordingly. If you are finding you are having to have an increasing i-max to keep up with a flat boost request, instead of having a rising i-max, consider a rising LDRL instead.

Reposting so you know what I am referring to.

Thanks for confirming my hunch that the DIMX still needed some work.

I also noticed, though have not posted a chart of it, that my desired AFR is going richer than the other cars.  That seems strange because I have gone back to the S4 EGT sensors and returned the TABGBTS and KFLBTS to the stock values.

There are so many variables that go into the BTS fueling (and the EGT model) that I am not surprised. You'd have to flatten them all out (or log a lot more stuff) to nail down the root cause. Also, I don't think the enrichment you are seeing is from ATR anyway, just BTS from modeled EGT.

By the time ATR triggers, it is WAY too late...

BTW I don't see anything wrong with letting the stock BTS do it's thing. if you want, you can prevent it from going much below 0.7 by flattening the bottom of the BTS map, but I wouldn't recommend it. You can also numb DLBTS (set to 0 <=6%) if you want.

Aside from DIMX, is there anything else you would advise improving with the tune?  If I accept that the AFR is where it should be, the timing also looks good.  I don't know if there's anything left to do.

Here's results using an RS4 MAF and a further updated DIMX table.  I thought the last revision reduced the boost onset too much at the peak, it was slowing boost too much prior to hitting the desired boost level.  This update is a little more aggressive, but went too far, overshooting more than I'd like.  I'm making another change to try and reduce the overshoot.

Also, even with the Bosch (RS4) MAF I am seeing a good deal more g/s and higher IDC than the other two cars.  I'm stumped as to why that it.

I also noticed that with the stock TABGBTS the modeled EGT is above the threshold immediately.  Apparently around 3500 rpm the BTS fueling is kicking in.  I've reverted to the stock KFLBTS table, but my car is still requesting a richer afr than the other two.

These DIMX settings don't slow the initial boost rise as much.  I don't know that I can do much better with the boost onset if DIMX is all I have to work with.  Next I'd try and bring the mid and upper rpm boost level down to the desired line.

Sounds good to me.

Fueling seems ok unless I want to start messing with the BTS table (I can't find the FBSTABGM in the XDF I've got), which I'd only do if I put the RS6 EGT's back in, which makes the tune work I do pointless as a community project at that point.

Timing also looks good to me, (I'll post up the rest of my data shortly).

Unless there's something I'm missing I think it's time to recap what's been done and call Stage 1/2 tune complete.

This has been a great thread. I'd like to applaud everyone involved. Did we come to the conclusion that the adjustment (to the flathead screw) of the N75 was the reason for the difference in boost profile @ spool-up between the cars?

It was very very far from a few different stock n75s he compared it to.

IMO the correct recommended action should be to purchase a brand new stock n75.

To the best of my knowledge neither of the two other car owners had changed the setting on their N75's.

The two devices I have are each set differently, and I know that is how they came from the factory.

I contemplated purchasing a new one, with the hope that it *might* be set like the other cars, but given the range of settings I have seen on these out of the box, I felt the best way to ensure my setting was equal to the other cars was to set it myself.

It would be interesting for you to purchase a new one and note how it is set compared to these others.

Can't know they are equal w/o testing the solenoid manually... there is a reason there is a screw - manufacturing variability of the valve as a whole (including spring).

Here's a compilation of the tables I changed and values I used upon completion of this phase.
Boost rises to around 17-18 psi and tapers to 10-11 by 6500 rpm.  Target AFR is 12.5 and IDC topped out around 90%.

DMX should exceed your max measured MAF readings by approximately 30 percent.

Just wanted to check the max boost values for this tune.

(http://i.imgur.com/jPzWx85.png)

I don't have an LDXRN table specifically. Instead I have LDXRN_1_A which had the same values. However the first values were in the hundreds and I changed them to the recommended boost levels. Peaking at 14.9 Just want to make sure these values are correct. Because the values are showing lower than before on the graph! Love reading this stuff!!

I have a few friends who are on Stage 3 who would like to aid in testing and the creation of Stage 3 files. Where should we start from Stage 2 to go about this? Exceeding limits is something I'd imagine would happen very often whilst refining a Stage 3. I don't know whether using a 3 Bar map sensor is really appropriate though. Unless you're running a 27 inch turbo compressor.  ::) ;D

Well done to all those involved with this. Absolutely brilliant work and great for those like me who are looking to learn. Its been about 3 and a half years since i tinkered with my s4, sold it back then and recently got it back. Running a little off and had quite a crude and aggressive map on. Started to overboost and misfire every so often so came back here to start again and found this a week back. Had a good read and will probably go over it a few more times too to try and fully grasp all the changes. Running a bosch version on mine and its wonderfully smooth and progressive. Pleasure to drive even with the odd boost spike. (i think its a failing/sticky n75 causing the issue)

Just wanted to say well done to the community, you have come together to do something that im sure has now helped many and as close to a how to guide as you can get.


Edit. Looks like the missfire was my original plugs. New ones in and it's perfect

Here are the files I was using.  Stock Hitachi MAF and Stock Injectors. 

The main hardware difference is likely only that I was using RS6 EGT's, but these files had the sensors coded out.

The secondary O2 sensors are also coded out.

Like I said, I'm still a bit baffled by the stage1/stage2 nomenclature for tunes in this context.

It isn't as if the tune needs to change between the two (stock dp/exhaust vs aftermarket), except for tweaking wg, which you *have to do anyway* because cars vary wildly depending on n75 etc at high wgdcs.

I wouldn't say stage 2 is *much* more aggressive. Usually by removing cats you can get away with leaning out and running a bit more spark advance. The bulk of the performance bump is in the stage 1.

The S4 Tuning Wiki has some guidance on the use of different MAF's, update one table and one other variable and you'll be set.  So using the guidance in this thread is certainly possible with a Bosch MAF.

Hi
My car is audi a6 2.7 -99 whit ajk engine (no rear o2, bosch maf) and 6spd manual. 3" downpipes no cats and 2x2.5" pipes. i have plx dm-6 wideband lambda to check fueling.
Original ecu is 4b0909551F and i write m-box file over it and try both nef stg1 and stg2 file. check engine light is on but there is no fault codes.

Fuel is euro 98e5, it shuld be same as 93oct.

I dont know why but there is lot of ignition retard at 2000rpm and 4500-5500rpm. I need to check spark plugs. Maybe they are too hot??
Whit stg2 file boost spikes over at 2700-3000rpm. If i start wot pull bit higher rpm boost is ok.

I wonder if anyone has played around with the modshack boostmachine and these tunes.  Once I get a better flowing exhaust I'll try loading the software with the rear o2s coded out but leaving the stock egt units in.  Such a great post and worth reading over more than a few times. 

The stage 2 file is great and was comparing it to the one the "guy" tuned the Ecu for my swap with. Very similar to the stage 2 Flyboy has in his site but with a lot more boost request.  Which explains why the car felt like it was pulling more but chocked.  I wonder if there's a copy of the NVR file to compare.  Thanks again everyone for such great information and sources.

Absolutely pointless. MBCs are for people who provably can't tune N75 properly.

Gotcha. I definitely have a loooooooot of reading and trials ahead.

Sorry to ask but was the stage 2 xdf ever shared in this thread?

I have the stage1 xdf and the full mbox xdf, but honestly there is such a huge difference between the 2. The stage1 xdf is awesome, the full mbox xdf is thoroughly confusing.

Any chance someone can point me to stage 2 xdf for mbox?

There are not multiple xdfs, dude.

If you have a fully defined .xdf, then you basically have stage X
(X=insert arbitrary number here).

As in fully defined; you have all maps at you disposal.

Kasper, I'm aware of that. My question was, is there an in between of the 2, but apparently not.
The stage1 xdf that daz had left us was nice and simple, maybe too simple? The full xdf has an overwhelming amount of maps/tables in it, with so many obscure ones.

Perhaps I got spoiled by tactrix/romraider for subaru where the xdf tables are very defined and clear. And I always had daz help me with my S4 bins and never had much time to learn me7 until now. Anyways, motor on!

After the start with the bare bones Stage 1 XDF we just used the full XDF, so there is no Stage 2 XDF.

I did try to summarize the changes in the Stage 2 tune and mention what the table did along with giving the name. 

The summary is here -> http://www.myaudis4.com/stage-2/ (http://www.myaudis4.com/stage-2/).

This.. sorry about the confusion. The "stage 1 xdf" is just a "noob" version of the full xdf.

Just use the full xdf.

Here is how I view logs for timing work:

(http://i.imgur.com/AIPbwwg.png)

If the camshaft angle is 0, that means KFZW is being used. If it is 22, that means we're in KFZW2.

In this log, we can see that from 3800 onward the values in KFZW are being used. Prior to that, it is KFZW2.

We can also see two knock events. One at 2200rpm, 150ish load. One at 2500, 160ish load. Take a look at the values for in KFZW where 2500rpm and 150 load intersect. Reduce timing in that area. NOTE! Just because CF is 3, does not mean you have to pull 3 degrees! One knock event at that RPM means CF's will be 3. This is actually not bad, and can be left as is, but I wanted to post for illustration purposes.

I would then suggest making sure KFZW/KFZW2 have the same values around 140-160 load at 3500-4000rpm to reduce the notch in timing. After that, relog. If you are not showing any CF's, I would then suggest adding more timing up top, from 4500 onward (to KFZW).

I have another Question about KFZW and KFZW2:
Are the values in the table the angle of the Crankshaft when the Ignition is initiated ?

It is either BTDC or ATDC(-) and 0 is TDC

I've got a near stock 2000 S4 6MT with OEM Bosch MAF.  I've flashed another 551A bin but this would be my first attempt at flashing a 551M bin.  Running Verify Checksums in Nefmoto hung the program, so I ran me7check on camlacen's above bin but received the following errors:

Should I try to fix these errors using me7sum (it would be my first use of that software), or is there another issue?

Done.  Attached are two Nef Stage 1 bins adjusted for Bosch MAF, with the second being optionally adjusted to avoid a nuisance communications DTC on non-CAN-bus cars (such as my 03/2000 build date S4 6MT).  I've briefly tested both with no unexpected issues, but have yet to do logging (and one of my recently replaced exhaust flex couplings just let go on my way to get stickered, so it might be a while).
