I've only done it once and I didn't tune it but all feedback was good. Reference signal from DFI connected to crankshaft signal input. Low res selected in the bin and 6 cylinders selected. That's what I done and sent it off. It was a good fun job that one very interesting. It was an all care no responsibility job we were all in in for learning. I have the tuned bin on file 3 bar VY V8 mafless as a base. No PCM mod's were done. All software and wiring.

No cam signal to PCM puts it back to bank firing of injectors. Cam signal to DFI still though.

I also read online of somebody claiming to do a similar scenario on a 4 cylinder engine. But had to flag the misfire DTC's for the unused cylinders as they fitted the LS1 reluctor wheel on the front of the balancer. Take it for what it is.

Ive been studying the operating system code, and there are various places where it checks the cylinder number is 8 or 6, and handles the 2 options sensibly. There is no code in there for any other number of cylinders, so I think on a 6 cyl everything would be sweet, but on a 4 cyl you'd want to select 8, and then some stuff would be 50% out which could get messy.

Code like this in 12202088, where its got a clause for 6 cyl, otherwise 8 cyl is assumed.

Code: Select all
ROM:0007797A                 cmpi.b  #6,(Cylidners).l  <--- 6 cyl?
ROM:00077982                 bne.s   loc_7798A         <---- if its not 6 cyl jump below the line for 8 cyl
ROM:00077984
ROM:00077984 loc_77984:
ROM:00077984                 clr.b   ($FFFFA649).w    <--- otherwise do this for 6
ROM:00077988                 bra.s   loc_779B8
ROM:0007798A ; ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
ROM:0007798A
ROM:0007798A loc_7798A:
ROM:0007798A                 tst.b   ($FFFFA649).w <----  8 cyl
ROM:0007798E                 bne.s   loc_779A0
ROM:00077990                 cmp.w   (off_8020+2).l,d3
ROM:00077996                 bcs.s   loc_779B8
ROM:00077998                 move.b  #1,($FFFFA649).w

That makes sense as 6 is a factory option for a single coil output

Grounded the EST wire so PCM was always in control of spark advance. Then spark trigger from PCM to DFI.

Just to be clear I only done it the once. Car was interstate and I didn't tune it.

Makes sense.. pcm doesnt know engine angle of rotation. Batch fires, sends spark pulses out cyl 1. DFI knows which coil and routes it the right way. PCM handles crank spark.

Pretty much. Reports were positive. I have the bin file I would be happy to share it with Antus.

I reckon low res crank option, 6 cyl setting, wire it like you say. Simple as that. More cost, less features than 11p on a 424. Newer pcm. More after market tuners. Pros and cons.
