    Re: Stock Spark Map Downloaded

    Don't worry I haven't forgotten about this guys. It's been snowing like crazy the past week and it hasn't been safe to do this. Also requires the help of a friend to safely drive and log data. I would setup the laptop and drive and let it do it's thing but the program blue screens after 20 minutes because of a memory error inherent with the program so someone has to constantly keep clicking save to retain the data.

    It's cool, the weather is shitty everywhere this time of year.
    As far as the memory error, it's a problem with the USB-Serial driver in Windows XP and Vista. I had a fix somewhere. Let me dig it up.

    Here it is (go to last page where the screenshots are):

    Maybe I could try this table with Ian's cams. Hmmm.

    Re: Stock Spark Map Downloaded

    I advanced mine a little more in some spots to make it look closer to the actual datalogged values. As you can see, I lowered some of the values in MegaTune slightly, but it turns out you can crank it up some. I really need to hook up my EGT sensor to the new manifold to see what the effect on EGT is. I know for a damn fact my fuel mileage has show up a good 4 mpg.

    I don't think that's the problem but it's worth a shot. It's not freezing, I'm getting a blue screen of death...it seems to be a memory error. I think it is something to do with the program and a corruption in the memory accessing. I have a feeling because it doesn't actually install to the computer it runs "live" off of the file. Therefore using all RAM.

    Re: Stock Spark Map Downloaded

    It does install, but the "patched" version doesn't need to. The thing is, if you're using a USB-Serial adapter, the damn Windows OS doesn't see any activity on the USB port when you use it for serial communications and it puts it to sleep to save battery power. Because that program ran great on my oldie laptop with an actual serial port. But who knows. Either way, even short datalogs are valuable.

    Re: Stock Spark Map Downloaded

    We've been running the program right from the "file". Is there a way to "install" it? I'm definitely going to try that and see if it helps. It's so annoying right now to have the computer restart every 20 minutes. If I can get it to run, I can hook it up on the drive home in two weeks and collect data for 3 hours.

    Bummer...want to see if you can get it again? I think with that it would solve this along with your suggestion.

    I'll look around, but I definitely switched computers since then.

    Re: Stock Spark Map Downloaded

    Dude this table is an awesome starting point. You guys rock. I had so many issues with my last table. I couldn't hold RPMs steady, idle sucked, shit was gay, etc. I left 9 of the rows the same and just used the top 3 rows for 100kpa to 250kpa.

    I also upgraded to the February 01 MS2Extra beta so I know it had some fixes too, but this rocks.

    Re: Stock Spark Map Downloaded

    Yeah, looks like I'll be taking an hour trip down the thru way Friday to go get my buddy's car at the shop, so two hours total of log time. Granted it will mostly be at 3,000 RPMs but hey there's about 15 minutes of city driving (each direction) so it should be good.

    Also I found out one of the later versions of the software has a note that says it fixes the program crashing after extended periods of data logging. I'm thinking that is my problem. Just out of curiosity I looked up how much it cost and it was about where I thought it would be (actually cheaper than I thought) at $99 to buy it. So far I don't deem it necessary for a simple bug that is just annoying. Unless of course everyone wanted to donate to the "spark map fund" haha. [img]{SMILIES_PATH}/lol.gif[/img]

    Re: Stock Spark Map Downloaded

    Well just to let everyone know Special Forces just sent me a fatty batch of logs to work with. Might take me a few days to get to them (finals coming up and work on the way), but it looks like we're even closer to getting the perfect map! [img]{SMILIES_PATH}/biggrin.gif[/img] Thanks man!

    Yup you got it man! Got a nice hour and 20 minute long log of the entire trip (no BSDs on the way back). Should make for some awesome averages and numbers.
