    I'll have to try it out sometime Steve, but it may not be until the spring now since I won't likely get any convertible driving weather days until then.

    Is there any software tricks to communicate at 8192 baud? I do some VB.net programming but don't know much about serial port control beyond using the standard baud rates.

    Great job Steveo and everyone that has helped with this amazing program!
    I really like this program and still learning. I have learned that my car likes more timing down low and love how it is a live tune in real time. Much more power and throttle response. I also found my cyl 1 is a little weak using the cyl balance test. Force AFR is also helpful and had a good test with it yesterday.
    I would like to be able to enable a "any key PANIC". We all know its not safe to drive while fooling with a laptop lol. Say I make a change that starts going bad fast I could simply reach over tap the first key any key on the laptop to kill all MODDS. Does that make since lol. I'll try the new version this evening. Thanks for everyones hard work

    Guys I really really like the Read BLMs under extended parameters tab. You know how much time this will save me. I usually write down BLM per Cell in a notebook to see what needs modified to correct and as you know this takes time. Being a rookie I also take notes of MAP, TPS position, RPM, MAF, MAT, Temp and Spark Adv in any given cell for every modded tune. I've said before I'm still learning and learn more and more everyday. I wish I could help more but you guys are on another level. I would like a quick key Panic whether it be the space bar or an enable any key as panic option. If we could save our data that would be awesome too. This program is amazing! Thank you all

    just released another new version, minor fixes and new features.

    thanks so much, that's great feedback!

    yeah dude bring a friend, you'll crash

    alt-enter in the latest version.

    If we could save our data that would be awesome too.
    data is all in memory, just need to make a save function. also making 'snapshot current hacks' button. wait for next version.

    im no vb programmer, but i think you can try serial_port.BaudRate = "8192".

    i've been informed the AFR works for standing tests, but loses its setting as you rev 'er out, and wont go as rich as i'd like. more study required. i might have botched the blm fix.

    For open loop forced AFR you can try this

    00 00 00 00 40 00 40 00 00 $$ 00 00

    $$= AFR X 10 converted in hex

    It shouldn`t drop untill cleared

    And make separate buttons for blm reset and blm update.

    Is it possible to add an interface to send custom commands and get the raw result on screen, with the ability to change timing settings, t1=pause and t2=wait till get full frame

    so far i've found when car is in closed loop, it seems to work ok, but in open loop, it seems to lose its setting.

    im experimenting with blm update disable + blm reset + force closed loop (60/40/40). if car is in open loop, forcing closed loop with a forced AFR wont hurt anything anyway since it's not real closed loop.

    this is hard to diagnose on my end without a wideband; i suppose the afr override is all stored in a register so we can't snag it with a mode 3 request, can we...?

    definitely possible

    it's outside the scope of the 'main part' of the program, though.

    one thing you'll notice if you look over the program is that the words 'hex' and 'protocol' and 'binary' aren't mentioned anywhere. that's by design. until i can see a real-world tuning need for a parameter, i'm hesitant to add it.

    so if i do add it, it'll be behind an 'advanced' or 'debug' button... just so guys like you and me can use it. i'll work on it.

    same story, those buttons would seem to aid experimentation and not tuning; not sure if they're necessary as part of the main interface.

    hell, there aren't even buttons to turn the fans off and on.

    i had them, thought 'why would i use this during tuning', and deleted them.

    ALDL mode 4, 12 bytes are stored at 028a-0295
    In particular afr byte is 0293

    At main programm Commanded AFR is located at 023f on tside and 0196 on eside so you can add it in the extended parameter list to monitor commanded AFR at open loop and WOT. At CL it will always read 14.7


    tside option byte_2026 bit $04 must be zero to use force AFR in mode 4, It is also used with some timer settings and other stuff when cyl deact is active.

    Looks good Steveo! Thanks I played with it yesterday and like the new updates. I'll do more testing today.

    New 2.0 release of my tool!

    Needs testing, please help me test 'er out

    Download and more details here: fbodytech.com - eehack

    Important new features:

    - Autospark graph: a primitive timing skew modifier will adjust over a range of rpm/map. Helps construct new timing tables with less re-flashing. It's not super fast, but its awesome for tuning cruise ranges..
    - Static analysis of logged data graphs BLM/INT against VE or MAF ranges, and plots knock events and their intensity on a grid
    - Wideband-through-A/C input, display and logging with easy configuration (needs testing)
    - New connect/disconnect and interface behavior increases stability
    - Many new stability changes to aggressively maintain connection and get as much data as possible without drop-outs
    - New raw data export (no import yet, but will help with analysis feature later....)

    there were a few stupid mistakes in the last couple releases. i need to slow down and test everything a bit better.

    please download latest version for bug fixes, this time i tested 'er out properly (and added a few new features as a bonus)
