Ls etc tuning

Postby Wade » Fri Apr 05, 2019 8:02 pm

There’s no info on electronic throttle tuning. First I played with it the throttle stayed open. Anyone have more info on the subject. Or is it just a case of get ready for key off, neutral and the strong leg on un-powered brakes

lol, scary thing with key off in the case of a moving car is steering lock. At least only keying off one notch is not bad, but imagine in a panic and fully locking the steering


:lol: :shock:

They should throw a code and get to reduced power if the throttle opening position doesn't match both channels on the pedal.

Figured out why it was sluggish. Was running off the low octane map. Even after it was out of sd mode. Changed the factory o/s back in and retuned, all good now

According to chemistry, alcohol is a solution...

Like Dylan, I was of the opinion that it wasn't possible for the throttle to hang, there's redundant reostats in the pedal and throttle as far as im aware...
