Re: **All Recon Users Must perform this** 81007

It's one of the most crucial PID's in the factory supercharged cars. I agree that it is important for the PCM to know what the IAT2 value is, and it does. Monitoring it is another story--PM me if you'd like to assist me in getting the value set up properly. I have no access to a s/c vehicle, nor ac...

Re: **All Recon Users Must perform this** 81007

So does this give you fuel trims and IAT 2's? It fixes the fuel trims (and properly scales them around 0.0%), however I am uncertain as to the IAT2 issue--which frankly has been tremendously overblown (not pun intended). I tried to work with a couple of users with regard to this, however I never re...

Re: **All Recon Users Must perform this** 81007

The older version of Recon (version dated prior to 8/9/2007) will not work correctly with newer versions of the interface firmware (v14 and 15). I am not 100% certain that the version on my website ( click here ) will work with diesel engines, mostly because I don't own one*--however it is tha same ...

Re: how do i tune my cobra now that i have added bolt ons..

You should start by buying this book , and then reading it several times. That will give you a basic understanding of what's what in EFI tuning. Next buy a wideband O2 sensor. Do NOT adjust any fuel modifiers unless you have a wideband sensor--there is a significant possibility of engine damage from...

Re: How To Disable Traction Control

The displacment in liters wil do the same thing. Set it to like 2.0 liters and walla, no traction control. The Sniper Why would changing the displacement in liters set TC to off? Good question, and if it setting the displacement to 2.0L is an acceptable method of disabling the t/c then I guess the ...

Re: Interface feature request.

I find that as I get closer to 65 I'm not as good at remembering stuff as I used to be--I created a "dummy" tune named deleted and write that to the positions I want to "clear". Multiloader still shows the filesize and PCM type but it helps remind me that it's an unused position...

Re: Cant adjust idle

If you are looking for Sniper to respond give them some time they are at the PRI show right now and I'm sure they don't have Internet service out there. I'm sure they will respond when they get a chance! Oh for gosh sakes, don't be silly--of course they have Internet connectivity in Orlando. In fac...

Re: increasing spark strength and plug gap

+1, for a given capacity voltage source a larger gap takes longer to ionize (and therefore "spark"), and in effect retards** the timing--however we're talking in terms of a few microseconds... At 6500 rpm the crankshaft's angular velocity is 39,000°/second (6500 * 360 / 60) which is a bunch. However...

Re: Update?

There is no way I would endorse using Seafoam on a car with only 5000 miles on it--it will most likely create problems, and will not fix anything. Seafoam is a product that was developed in the 50s for use in marine engines (hence the name) that either ran cold a lot (many do in colder waters), or s...
