what do you guys make of this, engine runs beautifully but every now and again there is a misfire that is caused by ms loosing sync, never really managed to get decent logs of it but yesterday i got about 3 hours play time and have found these

i have tryed alot of things, but interestingly the rpm are very very close making me think it is possibly a vibration problem or some electrical noise




bloody png's work but not jpg's lol

I don't know if you have a VR sensor but if so, have you tried adjusting the trim pots?

it is a VR sensor, i have done some tweaking with the trim pots but could not really notice any difference

Reason 2 (as shown on your log) is usually a missing tooth error.

The other logs would seem to confirm it.

Many possibilities.

Vibration (moving gap) of the sensor quite possible.

Noise (at higher RPMs) also quite possible.

What about the VR pot positions - the standard VR input circuit really is crap - maybe just a small tweek of the pots, especially the lower one, would help clear it.

The VR voltage rises with RPM so maybe your gap is actually too small.

Also, double check the polarity of the VR sensor and your ignition input (rising/falling) setting.

Best I can think of at the moment.

cheers so far guys, Rod i have had my sensor bracket off and modified it, the sensor is now a whisker away from the wheel as i thought it was not close enough
things on the to do list,
-change the shielded cable as its the std one from diy, and is single core and sheild
-another different VR sensor
-another fiddle on the VR Pots
-try a much larger sensor-wheel gap
-the capacitor mod on the coil pack i have never used it but worth a try

try moving it away a bit, iirc if the wheel touches the vr sensor it can cause this.

as youve had it running before and the only thing youve changed is the bracket? it must be that I reckon.

always had the odd misfire, i found this lost sync issue by accident it used to be really bad at starting also caused by a lost sync.
The starting issue is much better now its closer but the one in the logs above is still here, i will be able to see if its just touched the wheel i will have a look in the week

personally I'm a fan of hall sensors rather than the VR, you can wire them pretty much straigt into the opto isolator input bypassing all the pot stuff.

does mean you have to ditch the edis though

edis never even got a look in here *tongue*

is there an equivalent hall sensor to replace the VR still using the 36-1 wheel?

I'm using the M12 hall sensor on both my new 998 turbo builds. I use the same sensor for cam and VSS signals as well.

Interesting that DIYA just connect it up to the VR circuit.

The opto circuit can be problematic with high-tooth count wheels if you use the standard components due to filtering and the opto-coupler response. This is not an issue with the VR circuit (but there are other issues).

You can also use a MAX9926-based VR conditioner (such as my dual VR board V2.0) which has been proven to be better in a lot of cases.

Of course this assumes that the mechanical and EMI issues are taken care of independently.

tryed, sorted, :)

BUT now there are more problems *tongue* and i think its down to my dump tube set-up, boost builds beautifully from around 2k up to 4k it holds 8-10psi ( ish rough guess till i look at the logs) then wham peaks well off the scales at 260kpa :( i think the valve on the wastegate is lifting off the port straight into the hole of the dump tube thus closing the wategate as such couple screen shots to follow shortly

are you using the MS to controll boost?

ok I was just wondering if the MS was throwing a spaz and bleeding off all the boost signal,

dump valve and actuator feed from the same place? i'd keep them seperate.

actuator feed from turbo compressor, dumpvalve from plendemlebob

the actuator feed is about 2m long though as it comes inside to a bleed valve, i would have thought it would make the boost spikey at gear changes but not cause boost creep - what would you say?


the 2nd Screenshot shows it go very lean, it looks like ages have past by the logs but i lifted as soon as i saw it, or benny called it whichever lol
not bad on a needle i polished up last night with no testing *tongue* i think i need to retry the 12lb spring though the needle seems to be at the top before it finishes revving

could just be a kink in the pipe or somthing,

link the bleed valve out and see what its like. then link the compressor to the actuator with a short pipe to chek thats ok

I used to use a in car bleed valve and that gave the same problem as you are describing. You cold try a under bonnet valve or tube with holes drilled to test?

investigated and it did although not as bad as i thought, down pipe has been modified now and it made no difference, well it did the boost stayed down longer but just spiked up even faster when it does it, spark cut is now enabled to protect against over boosting

and the misfire at 4.5k is back so i spaced the sensor out another washer(~.5mm) more and it wouldnt start, i have adjusted the trim pots r52/r56
i can get a beautiful start but the misfire when running or pig to start and no misfire cant get that sweet spot in the middle
i cant get a log of the vr signal when its running,anyone know how/ if you can

have you paid for the full tunerstudio?

then under diagnostics select tooth logger and hit start.
