  • EEPROM Code

    Code is a language that computers or simple electronics understand, it serves as an instruction set to check what sensors are doing, and tells other electronic devices of the motor what to do and how to do it. For example, fueling and spark.

    "Code" what we refer to when tuning our ECU's, can be compared to as an ISO that is burnt to a CD. Or if you are not computer savvy, can be thought of, written letters and sentences on a piece of paper. The paper being the EEPROM and your writing as the code.

    With the proper hardware and computer programs, we read the contents of the EEPROM and save it to our computers for modification pleasures. The contents are stored in a format called a "BIN" file.

    Applications such as TunerPro can read this "BIN" file and change the contents, allowing us to change parameters, effecting how the ECU runs our motor.

    After the modifications have been done, we can then write the new Bin file to the EEPROM, thus affecting or changing how the engine runs... This is what we call "Tuning".

    For further information on tuning please see the Article on OBD1 Tuning.

    • How to: Megasquirt2 v3.0 and Megatune
      by Jonpro03
      Planning
      First step is to plan and buy your Megasquirt. I used a v3.0 board and a MS2 processor. http://www.diyautotune.com Currently, the latest board release is v3.57 and processor is MS3. However, you do not need a v3.57 board to install a MS3 processor. It will work for either board version. I recommend a V3.0 board because it currently has the best documentation. However, the 3.57 board is pre-assembled if you are not handy with a soldering iron. If you choose a 3.57 board, you...

      This is a how-to on installing a heated oxygen sensor into your car. The benefit of a heated oxygen sensor is that your car will go into closed loop much quicker, which means the ECM is adjusting your fuel based off of the sensor and not maps. By doing this your car will run better quicker on cold start-ups. It will also improved fuel consumption during start up, as well as reduce emissions.
      First, you will need to get a 4-wire heated O2 sensor with the pig-tail.
