For sure thanks for the quick response!

This literally started after MHD and my new intercooler. Put the car in M mode and it starts jumping up and down in idle like crazy.

Finally ditched my JB4+BEF stack setup and back to running MHD OTS e30 momentarily until I get a custom flash only tune. MHD is 1000000x smoother, and runs more consistently.

I switched for the same reason. The driveability with a manual trans was particularly bad. You'd have thought it was my first time driving a stick

1-2 psi off target isn't anything to worry about. It's also normal for it to taper off in the higher rpm range.

I have a DCT car, JB4+DCT do not go well together, laggy up shifts and downshifts compared to flash only. JB4+BEF was a missile at WOT in a straight line every other driving scenario it's shit.

But when I don't use the MHD option, I can see it switching from status 1 to 0
"randomly" - logic behind seems complex , its not necessary always open at WOT.

question was also what "status 0" in log means open/closed?
maybe Justin , or someone else could chime in.

It seems to be positive on my DCT car. Reason am not telling you what the change is, is because I don't want you looking for the change, I want you to drive the car as you normally would and see if you feel a difference without falling to the "Placebo" effect.

Preferably early E cars right now. As I haven't defined the tables yet for the Late E. I will after/if I get good feedback from the 5 volunteers.

If you want to test, please email me with full vehicle VIN, OTS map variant you're using, and transmission type.

justin@twistedtuning.com

thanks.
For those testing Justin's "secret" map , have you noticed any improvements , I sent Justin my mail a week or two back ,
with my log, but no response as of yet.


here's the log anyway for those interested to see, its just a ca. 5 min drive with few WOTS , -few over boost and hence corrections here and there.

https://datazap.me/u/keyless69/justi...4-7-8-13-26-18

I feel something changed, in a positive way
- the way car is changing gears (DCT), is smoother.
- Idle is smoother (though was rough at first after resetting VANOS & load)
- car turns better, almost no lag.

I could be wrong ("Placebo") and the behaviour is not related to the map,
- as temperatures are currently getting to freezing point, the car becomes more responsive .

After driving around for a few weeks on the 'secret' map, I too feel a change for the positive. Very smooth idle, the changing of the gears is very smooth(6AT) while daily driving, and the power is there instantly as I give it a bit of throttle.

Alright, I was experiencing the same benefits that ya'll were for about a week or so of driving on the test map. Though, late last week I emailed Justin that I was getting some weird symptoms with it that were progressively getting worse the more I drove the car. At first the response was noticeably better, but over time I started to experience more and more lag along with hesitation (coupled with noticeable NVH when it happens) when boost finally comes on. I was also having really weird cold starts were the car would stumble for a bit at normal idle RPM, then slowly raise into the typical cold start sequence. Overall, everything just didn't feel very smooth. I flashed back to the normal 1.53 map and reset the load control and VANOS adaptations again and all of the negative symptoms I mentioned went away. That all being said, my logs seemed clean of corrections for the most part.

I'm not sure why I wasn't experiencing these earlier on...

thx for the feedback, I haven't experienced any issues as of now, and the car is still quite responsive.

I am on the test map and everything has been awesome. No issues at all. One of the main improvements Justin implemented in the test map was part throttle responsiveness. This has made for a much more enjoyable ride all around.

I have not noticed any of these conditions, and honestly enjoy this test map. It is very smooth and responsive. It has made daily driving more enjoyable.

This is what makes me think something isn't/wasn't quite right. After a day or so of driving after flashing the test map/reseting the adaptations, the car felt really responsive and lively. I do not know if it had something to do the car continuing to adapt overtime or what, but as I mentioned it was progressively getting really bad. The way I described it to justin was that the test map almost required me to slowly roll into the throttle for it to feel smooth. No matter what gear/RPM I was at, if I went full WOT the car would hesitate quite a bit. If I rolled into the throttle over a couple seconds it felt smooth and responsive.

Check if you coincidently selected a wrong option , happens to me several times in the past.

Maybe you should give it another shot and log the behaviour,
Justin should know if there's an issue before releasing the map.

The map works well with linear throttle, enable it.
I have disabled burbles aggressiveness , -no technical reasons, but personally feel the car overall sound is better with burbles-only.

Can someone test this on their car for me, I'm running OTS E30 newest version/beta and going WOT in 3rd gear around 2500rpm gives a surging/choppiness feeling until hitting around 3200-3500rpm. Not like I would usually do this but passing someone today I noticed that. Will upload a log later after work. Plugs are new, as well as boost solenoid.

it seems like I'm underboosting pretty hard and got some timing corrections
boost leak?

I'd recommend grabbing a new log, following these steps:

1. Start logging
2. Stabilize around 2500 rpm in 3rd gear with DTC fully off
3. Mash the pedal (without triggering kickdown), shift at ~6500 and hold 1-2 seconds after the shift into 4
4. Slow down, stop the logging.
5. Upload to datazap, post the link here.
