Cobb Stage 1 Sport just installed. Help with data logs

Hi everyone,
I just installed the Cobb stage 1 sport map on my car. Went out for a drive, just to make sure car ran fine. I enabled data logging but, didn't perform a proper 3rd gear pull. However, some of the values I logged bother me. I will do a proper run but, I want you guys to take a look at my data, just to make sure everything is ok. I don't want to go do a WOT pull and damage something.

The graphs are attached. A few things I noticed.

~20 PSI boost spikes. I have not seen such high boost spikes on anyone's timing graphs. Is this something unexpected, considering that I logged during normal driving, instead of a staged pull?

At times, there is a huge discrepancy between the requested load and actual load. Any insights?

Timing corrections, I assume they are in degrees? It looks like the DME is pulling a few degrees of timing at WOT. Is that more so than expected?

Cylinder 1 timing is all over the place. What's with the severely retarded timings? Anything less than 0 implies spark after TDC. Engine braking, perhaps?


The car FEELS good and there are no codes. What do you guys think? Should I just go out and do a proper 3rd gear pull now and, not worry about the weird data here?

Thanks

Holy scaling fail batman.

Rescale a WOT pull in 3rd gear from 3000 RPM to redline with a shift into 4th and repost.

Obviously the scale is totally off there, but regardles, a datalog is generally only useful if it's a WOT pull from about 2.5K to at least 6K revs. Just cruising around you'll see timing corrections, which is totally normal.

Some people say there are lies, damn lies, and statistics, but with data scaled and formatted this way, it's just a straight up fail.

Meh, only two data sets were scaled.

The idea here was to see if it's safe to even do a 3rd gear WOT run, considering the 20PSI boost spikes.

boost spikes are perfectly normal on gear change. Just do a 3rd-4th gear WOT and datalog it with the std parameters. attach the file renamed as txt if you dont know how to plot it.

Do a proper 3rd gear pull. And make sure to disable traction control so you don't get throttle closure. Also, let us know what fuel you are running.

I've been traveling so, I finally got the chance to do a 3rd gear pull, yesterday. I'm not sure what values you need to look at so, I've attached the csv file, renamed with a .txt extension.

The car had Sunoco 93 with 10% ethanol blend in it when these logs were taken.

Thanks.

Reset your datalog list to the default channels. That will really give a lot better picture of what's going on.

With that said, the timing corrections and the important stuff(what's there atleast) looks ok.
