This release is a major software and feature update for all the 'C' level ECU's. Order update for existing ECU's here: http://www.034motorsport.com/034efi-engine-management-034efi-systems-upgrades-stage-v102-firmware-upgrade-p-19968.html

Tuning manual for 1.02 can be downloaded here: http://www.034motorsport.com/docs/034EFI_Tuning_Manual_1.02.pdf

NEW FEATURES:
-16x16 3d timing map in addition to the current maps, this will allow you to have extremely good resolution across the board, while still retaining the quick timing map setup you have now with the 2d tables. The 3d table can be your primary timing table, as seen below, or it can simply be a 'trim' table, with the traditional 2d tables definining the majority of the timing curve.
Image

-5.5d fueling tables will greatly help guys with nasty cams/itbs who have poor MAP sensor resolution in some areas. These new maps will give you two full 16x16 tps based tables, one for tps based injection quantity, and another tps/rpm based blending table, so you can choose when you want to lean on the tps sensor with extreme accuracy.

-Startup timing and fueling enrichment with set rpm breakpoints and post-start enrichment timer.

-Timing based idle control, allows the ECU to retard/advance timing to adjust for small fluctuations in idle speed.
Image

-2-wire GPO based closed loop idle will let you use a 'standard' 2-wire ISV in closed loop-fashion using GPO 1 or 2. The GPO output can be programmed for any operational range and direction of the motor to accommodate as many different styles as possible.
Image

-Onboard Diagnostics mode, lets you test each injector and coil with a click of the mouse
Image

-Minimum injection value per channel any time your above your decel cutoff point, the absolute lowest injection value calculated can be locked with this setting. This greatly helps idle stability and engine decel to idle operation with very large injectors that are operating right at their lowest physical opening time.
Image

-Input configuration To suit as many setups as possible several ecu inputs can now be mapped to various functions. Configurable pins are: Map Select, Trig-B, Trig-IDX, and the AUX. pin.
Image

-CAN Based wideband and EGT Support for our upcoming Wideband and EGT controller for a direct digital signal and controller information to ensure accuracy, and all the pertinent information needed.

-Remote tuning is now possible with networking support built into the GUI, two computers can be tied together and a tuner can remotely manipulate and log all the functions within the ECU.

-Custom sensor calibrations Capability to now map the response curve of all temperature and pressure sensors for the ECU.
Image

-Wheel speed input fully configurable wheel speed input with gear mapping for up to 7 gears
Image

-Gear based boost/GPO control allows 4 completely independent closed or open-loop boost tables to be assigned to any gear you choose.
Image

-Flat shift system allows you to install a clutch-based switch that turns off injectors and/or pulls timing for a specified period of time, allowing you to keep your right foot down 'flat' while rowing through the gears.

-Extremely advanced launch and rev-limiting control system. We've added a pile of new rev limiters and strategies to let you lock and hold your desired RPM with as much or little boost as you want. There are 6 different rev limiters now, 3 for each mode (normal operation/launch control). With this you can set fuel cuts, hard ignition cuts, ignition cut strategy (how many ignition events you want to drop in a row, what pattern you want to drop, etc).
Image

Here's a quick example of us testing it in the time attack car. With this setup we used a hard-ignition cut at 6300RPM with 30d of timing getting pulled at 6000 rpm. This gave us ~5psi of boost off the line and a launch point we could easily hold before take off:

UPDATED FEATURES:
-Closed loop lambda table is now a 9x9 table for greater resolution

-Main fueling table increments down to .001 for finer adjustment

-Additional phases 4 additional phase tables have been added for 16 total, even more injector/coil phasing options now.

My jaw kept gaping more and more with each feature. Baller status there.

Sweet. I look forward to implementing a lot of that on my 200 next spring.

Sweet!

-Road Dyno box, this will let you guys lock in on your road tuning with some nice, quick, visuals. You will want to find a nice flat level, closed, road. Set your start and stop RPM point, arm the dyno box and let it rip. You can then set your baseline and overlay subsequent pulls to see where and how much more/less power you are making at a give point. All data is saved into seperate CSV files and can be analyzed in excel later.


All the other stuff is very cool but this is a nice "gee wiz" feature.

Looking forward to upgrading my Ic but still see a IIc in the Coupé's future.

will this be for stage Ic ecu's or just stage IIc's only?

will this be a no-cost update or a purchasable upgrade?

:thanks:

There will be a service fee for existing c-level upgrades, won't be too much, similar to what the last upgrade cost.

This is certainly exciting stuff. It will be a perfect compliment to my 3071 upgrade, whenever that happens.

Just when I'm finally starting to get a grip on what the stuff can do that's already in the current firmware. :roll:

Looks very promising. Nice job guys! :woowoo:

Give us an approximate release date..

Let´s say before christmas we could get that update or do we have to wait even longer?

(Asking because then I know to plan my dyno setup times for this year)

Greets,
Heiki

Glad you guys like, we're certainly proud of it and the level it brings our ECU to.

We have no definitive release date, it will be released when its ready for release and has been thoroughly tested.

Thanks everyone,

I'm really looking forward to this.

Maybe we already talked about this, but will the idle motor integrated into the AEB throttlebody work as a 'standard' 2 wire ISV?

How will the speed setup work? Will it be a pure pickup for the ability to do launch control and boost by gear, or will there be an output for it as well to drive a speedo?

:slap: There's some motivation for you! :)

That all does sound like a bunch of fun though :)

It uses one of several ECU inputs (as setup in the new input configuration tab) and you enter data about number of pulses per wheel rev, and tire rolling diameter.

This allows calculation of wheel speed to 1/16th of an MPH.

Knowing engine RPM, and MPH, you can then determine the gear you are in.

Boost by gear allows up to 4 separate tables to be used on a single GPO driver on a gear by gear basis.

There is no output to drive a speedo, but the MPH and many other params are output to the CAN bus to allow an MS3.1 compliant dash to display MPH and gear number, along with all the usual telemetry data.

Also MPH and gear number are now stored in ECU logs.

Cool features Jared.

Is this info coming from the ABS sensors? Can you maintain ABS function and EMS speedo?

It technically could come from an ABS tone ring, though from what the guys tell me about the tone ring, it has too many teeth to be run into the ECU, plus it is a VR sensor (needs to be HALL). Since this feature is an afterthought to the ECU function, there is a practical limit to the tooth count.

No the ECU will not control ABS.

No comment on the EMS speedo.

Can I run it off of the 6 bolts that connect the center driveshaft to the transmission? This seems like a good way to get a nice and steady signal.

Yeah, that would make more sense. You would have to account for the difference in gearing.
