Urgent EFI help requested
I have just broken-in a new built engine and then finished the nuts and bolts portion of a TVS installation. I have an EFI computer wired up and I'm trying to get started so I can begin tuning.
I had put out a request for maps a while back and Jim Clayton emailed a couple. I visited Eyelise at his home and he helped me setup port configs and get my laptop and EFI talking. He also gave me two maps.
I loaded up a map several hours ago and have hit a wall. Here are the problems:
1. Jim's maps won't load into the editor.
2. I was able to load Eyelise's maps. The car won't start on either one. I went through them and checked constants and made a few small changes as suggested in the "Getting Started..." PDF. The editor was accepting the changes and passing them to the EFI. (I saw a short progress bar and heard clicking from the engine bay with each change.) Voltage is good and the car cranks well, but there is no combustion. Data controls show reasonable numbers. I looked at the cranking pulse, it was 3300, so I bumped it a few times, eventually to 7000. Still no combustion, but now after cranking, there is a noticeable fuel smell.
3. I took a break and reviewed the documentation I have. I just went out to the garage to try again and found I can not load a map anymore. I can select either of the maps I had been trying, but they don't seem to load up regardless of which map switch position I set. (No progress bar or clicking.) This is especially baffling and frustrating, since the only change I made was to eat a snack!
I tried closing out the editor and reconnecting. The editor goes right online with the EFI, but I still can't make the maps load.
Is there a way to see if the EFI is supplying spark?
Is there something I can fix with a hammer? I really want to hit something...
Any ideas will be appreciated.
Also, if you have a map you're willing to share, please pm me. Ideally, the map would be for my setup (non-intercooled TVS blower on gReddy manifold, 85mm pulley, 550 injectors, 2bular header and decat, Cup air box, 9:1 pistons), but I'll be happy to receive anything that I can get started on and then tune to suit.
