[Sticky] New Software features
Yes, Ive checked it. Its super cool. I just really would like to have couple extra features with it. When we are tuning at constant RPM (lets say 3000) and alpha-n timing, we need to reset live graph every time we go from one table to another, to get visible line. I know when we are pushing more throttle then there is more torque, but sometimes its not so obvious when we have retarded timing. Reset button will be extremely helpful. In situation when we are tuning 10% TPS and want to tune 15% next, it will be much faster to click reset graph and have new curve. Also except looking at curve, it would be nice to have max torque/ignition angle indicator (like "max torque at 27,5 deg").
Some ecus send knock flag like motec,emu (1 = knocking), some knock level. Red indicator when knocking (for flag just on/off, for knock level thereshold value) would be much more visible and therefore could save engine if we can see it early. Indicators like CLT, Oil press, Oil temp, Injector DC could also have warning therehold, at which shows warning message.
Curve smoothing factor would keep torque spikes smoother. Autoscale on/off button will makes things simplier (sometimes fixed axis work better with this mode), and torque optimisation gauges arrange button would be best. We could fastly change between normal power sweep to torque optimisation mode and vice versa.
This is how I imagine it :
I see this dyno test and I like the ideea with dotted line for first run and full line for second run. Also, can you make it to show max power and torque like in this image.
Best regards Jostein
Formula editor for creating custom Formulas using values(tags) from runs in combination with equations.
Result from formula can for example be used for showing N/A Power off a boosted car or deviation from a "base run" in the log. Usefull for ignition tuning.
Matc channels would be a great add. This would be handy for BSFC
I’ve asked Jostein in the past and he said he’ll work on it. A bit different approach though, I’ve opted to have an option to make markers, so you can compare a specific point in the graph.
for instance max numbers could be only 10hp apart, while somewhere in the rev range it could be 50hp. So you can add a marker at that point of the graph clearly showing the difference between the two (or multiple)
- Would be useful to be able specify the units for power, torque, pressure, air fuel and temp individually rather than just metric or imperial
- Adding Logo to the sheets
- Manual range setting of graph scales
Units for aux channels can be set individually (lambda, pressure, etc) without restrictions, any mix is possible. Just type in the unit you want and adjust the Aux setup to fit (translation between analog voltage in and the sensor value in your chosen unit).
It is great that I am able to measure fwd and rwd cars on my dyno. Reversing brake calibration is a vehicle specific option though. Could this be stored and selected within gear ratio/rpm setup menu so that I do not have remember changing this in options menu?
Thanks for considering...
What about the ability to do warm up or run-in loading?
For warmup could Pre-program say 2500 -3500rpm 'blips' say every 2 seconds
This could then further lead onto the ability to load a target RPM v Time excel sheet and then effectively run a lap of the track on the engine dyno
