Using more than 10 columns in normally aspirated tuning?

I was just wondering about this... The K-pro, when using forced induction, uses 16 load columns. Additional ones are added to the top of the N/A setup for positive pressure. Is there anything in the ECU setup that would stop me from re-defining all 16 load columns into a normal normally aspirated se...

Re: KManager V3.2.1 (beta)

Same problem here with 3.2.1 on a Windows 7 netbook. Easy to reproduce. 1> Start Kmanager 3.2.1 (no need to connect to ECU) 2> Button 'New Calibration' 3> Select 'Civic Type R (European) - PRA' 4> Select any of these, eg. k20a2-civictyper-factory.kal 5> Press 'OK' Error window pops up: 'Could not lo...

Re: Need calibration for K20A Stock engine ( K20A for DC5 )

The basemap K20a-itr.kal is probably OK for your engine as a starting point if you have a PRB ECU.

The description is: 'ITR with Toda header, Injen intake, Mugen twin loop exhaust, stock ITR cams'

Bye, Arno.

Re: PRA ECU datalog primary O2 sensor voltage too low?

Hmm.. You may be onto something there.. The engine itself isn't that much modified (K20A2 with DC5 pistons, TODA A3 cams and valvesprings), but the engine is mounted pretty solid in the car (and in the back of the car vs. the front ;) ) compared to the stock setup on an EP3 Civic so the crank speed ...

Re: PRA ECU datalog primary O2 sensor voltage too low?

The ignition retard you are seeing is 'acceleration smoothing retard'. See http://www.hondata.com/help/kmanager/gearcompensationparameters.htm That's correct, but the ECU seems to decide I'm accelerating and need acceleration smoothing retard when the TPS is not changing at all or at most only 1% o...

Re: PRA ECU datalog primary O2 sensor voltage too low?

The wideband is current based and not voltage based. OK, but the PRA uses a narrowband which is a simple voltage based cell and current is irrelevant for these? (up to a point ;) ) I suspect you mean to say that the narrowband O2 sensor on a PRA ECU with a K-pro is not really scaled or set up in th...

PRA ECU datalog primary O2 sensor voltage too low?

- serial number of K-Pro: 11084 - ECU part number: 37820-PRA-E12 - serial number: 188226-4113 - KManager version: 3.1.2 up to and including 3.2.0 - what sort of vehicle you have: Lotus Elise Perhaps this is simply the way it works and a by-product of the software being geared towards the PRB ECU wit...

Re: KManager 3.1.6 'Edit All Tables' values applied incoorec

If you want to make the case that this behavior is not the best way to edit the ignition tables then I'll consider changing it. No that's OK.. May be a good idea to explain the logic on how the 'Edit All Tables' affects modifications in the other/cascaded cam angles than the one you're editing in t...

KManager 3.1.6 'Edit All Tables' values applied incoorectly?

Hi, I noticed the following effect on KManager 3.1.6 (and older ones before that). Laptop is running Windows 7 Starter (32bit). Not sure if it's an intentional effect of some interpolation/adjustment or not, but this is what happens: 1> Start KManager (no need to attach to an ECU) 2> Choose 'New Cal...

Re: Question about map scales and VTEC crossover cam angles

Thank you for the background info. Very helpful.

Seems I'm not barking up the wrong tree completely :)

Question about map scales and VTEC crossover cam angles

I recently had the PRA ECU in my Lotus Elise with a EUDM K20A2 (and some goodies) upgraded with a K-pro3 and have been looking into the specifics of the K-pro wrt. setting it up and remapping it. I do have some experience with using generic mappable ECU's on various engines and in most areas the K-p...
