Ben, the LC4 and LC5 maps still have the engine revving to around 2k+ on start up. Are there any moves afoot to modify the ECU maps to setlle this down a tad?

Cheers ;)

Just got an email from Ben with a reduced idle ECU map.

Great service as ever with no running around to different places.

God bless Ben and Cobb

:thumbsup:

Just flashed updated ECU map and cold idle is OEM-like.

Thanks Ben, top service!

Much much easier doing this myself than having to drive to a tuner.

Guys, now that we have both the Cobb and Ecutek GTR software I have noticed that it doesn't matter what Launch RPM you dial into the LC the car will not give you any more throttle than it needs to make the launch RPM.

It will not wind throttle in until the car is moving , so effectively the car will never leave with any +boost as the ECU will not give the car enough throttle to make any boost.

That's why ECU's like the Syvecs and Motec will give such a more aggressive launch.

Your not kidding! I'm loving the Cobb updates and remember the bad old days of mapping when I had the Supra and drove too and from my tuners to keep getting it tweaked!

Although saying that I'm going to get Rod @ RB to do me a high boost map :)

Looking back it was last April when I developed full throttle staging and it worked (using Cobb), although my tester found that it just roasted his tyres and his gearbox started slipping after but a learn fixed that. Things can take a long time to get from development to release for sure, but since then a few pieces of the puzzle have dropped into place that make this viable, and before I left Cobb and after I've made sure they have all the info to implement this.

I think only the best built transmissions should go anywhere near this sort of launch and even then it will break any weak part in the drivetrain if used to the potential that the engine could manage combined with proper rubber.

Thistle,

didn't know that , I was just looking at some logs and speaking To Tony @ T1 the other day with regards launch control and after market ECU's like Syvecs and Motec Launch control;

from what I have heard thou running full launch control has been known to rip the diff off of the main transmission case.

Ben, to install LC5 you only need to update AP with latest alpha software, uninstall the AP and re-install which map to the tcm?
