Multiplier tables are 2d, that is why I asked Jon what the other variable was that effected the multiplier table, depending on what is being looked up could adversely effect the tune if you just went and set it to 1 for the entire table. If I had to guess it would be timing vs. coolant temp, as both a safe mode (romping before the engine reaches operating temp, and also to increase cat heating). Jon is this correct? Since you are the man with the tables infront of you.... Still cheating HaHa

We just have to wait and see.

Oh and thanks for message Boosted2.0
Factory tunes are consevative, but not that conservative. In order to see those numbers there will have to be a mechanical change in the breathing aspect of the engine (Intake, Header, Exhaust, cams, porting, valves...)

This in in reference to the TUNE only, not the maximum total change in horsepower by adding the above...

By default the advance multiplier is at .7. Car won't see full advance until the advance multiplier jumps up to 1.0

Interesting. Next time we have a free hour I will re-dyno. I will make a few pulls, reset the ECU and make a few more and see what happens. If it drops I will re-dyno the next day andsee if it has come back up.

More like 8 feet (1312 vs 1320). DK is short and probably weighs around 130+/- lbs also.

This.

Busy is a good thing though, so I'm not complaining

It has now been confirmed - the FR-S is defionitely running Toyota ignition strategy where you start at maximum advance and it is managed by 2 ignition trims.

Here is the relevant data:

Here is the extended testing (250 miles to 8500 miles with 2 oil changes) with an ECU reset for curiosity's sake tossed in.




Here's just the ECU reset before/after:




All runs in 5th gear, on the same dyno (ours) and the same car obviously.

Runfile 10 represents the best pull on a fresh motor with 250 miles on the odo.
Runfile 17 represents the best pull on a broken in motor with 2500 miles on the odo and a fresh oil change
Runfile 21 & 22 were done today back to back at 8500 miles with no changes but fresh oil from runfile 17. It represents additional power from break-in at the 8500 mile mark
Runfile 23 represents a fresh ECU reset pull with ideal conditions (cold coolant, warm oil)
Runfile 24,25,26 represent a hot motor and were done with zero cooldown between pulls.


The second plot is just to give a good example of what a fresh ECU reset can do to the power plot.

We previously argued that the ECU is more like a toyota ECU in that it runs max timing on reset and slowly pulls back timing as knock is detected. Other's had made the claim that it is more like a subaru ECU in that it runs a dynamic advance multiplier below max and slowly adds timing back in.

With this dyno testing we can confidently say that the ECU runs max timing on the ECU rest.

Furthermore we can give advice for those seeking to have parts installed on their vehicle, and or tuning.

Based on our extended testing, we recommend not having the vehicle tuned until at least 2500 miles on the odo (and hard driving after the first 500 break-in miles.)

We also recommend, prior to dyno testing/tuning, to reset the ecu get a baseline pull or 3, install parts, reset the ecu again and do the final after dyno.

Doing it in this way will eliminate any power gains from an ecu reset and show just what the parts will make.

Not doing it in this way enables others to potentially inflate their power claims.

Thanks for the update but this isn't correct.

After ecu reset the car does not run max advance..

The ignition logic is 100% what subarus have been using for over 10 years.

why does a 190hp elise dyno the same as a 180 hp celica?

Why do you suppose they saw gains after the reset? I kind of figured it was still using the Subaru ignition mappings.

Because they dont make 190 hp. That was a marketing gimmick. Its still only 180 crank. Its been dyno confirmed many times.

I thought it was because the exhaust was different and the ecu had a slight tune difference. But I never looked at a dyno from it
