IAM of 1.0.
No values in the fine ignition.
Dynamic advance shows my full DA value (10 degrees).
My total timing value does NOT equal my Primary + DA. I should be getting 19-20 degrees at some points but my timing is 14.5-15d. Grrrrr. Previous logs show that I had no problem running the 19-20 degrees. Nothing else has changed ... except for the gas here. I just got done detuning my car. I pulled 5 degrees of timing from 5K-6K and richened it up 1/2 pt AFR. I want my good gas back
We did an install on my best friend's WRX. Cobb Downpipe, Cobb Uppipe, my stock STI catback, and a stage 2 tune (by yours truly). Grrrrr. I had to pull approximately 5d of timing from his car too (compared to the popular OTS maps). More confirmation that the sucky gas has finally hit my area. I'll get more confirmation shortly as I'll be helping tune another stage 2 WRX soon.
Everyone on the east coast should double-check their timing. I'm not talking about making sure that you are getting all of your DA. The logs show that the ECU is asking for all of my DA. The IAM is at 1.0 too. But, the overall advance is not what it should be. I kept pulling timing from the main ignition map until the actual timing and the calculated timing are now equal. My only explanation is knock detection by the ECU and the subsequent reduction of timing on-the-fly.
Weird thing is that both my car and the WRX had problems only when above 5000rpms.
