Panama Tuning Adventure – 6.26.2017

Its always great having the opportunity to return to my country and help out my associates in getting their clients’ vehicles running correctly.  It also excellent that we have Copa Airlines flying direct from MSY to Panama, trip is only 3:30hrs.  Apart from that, it is always hard leaving the family and rushing out the door at 4:15am to catch a flight.

Waiting at the terminal I was greeted with a celebration as that same day was the actual 2 year anniversary of Copa Airlines having direct flights from Louis Armstrong airport to Tocumen Panama.  Flight left on time and arrived in Panama at the scheduled 10:50am.

Met my friends at the airport and was welcomed by the usual gridlock traffic that the capital of Panama is famous for.  Drove to a performance shop to pick up some VP Race fuel and saw a Honda tech that is famous around the country for his high horsepower projects.  This time was no different as Vicente was working on his Honda Civic with Kseries swap turbo.  This should be a nice little monster once its all said and done.

Well since it was past lunch time we had to stop by to get something to eat before the ride out to the country side.  Stopped at this mall and ate at a place called Lenas y Carbon and had a nice steak, along with some nice sides and a chicken soup called “sancocho” down here.

Arriving at Taller NB in Las Tablas that night was greeted with 2 very nice 370z waiting to be protuned via UpRev.
The red one has some Stillen Gen3 intakes and Greddy catback exhaust.  Final numbers were 298whp and for all you dyno jet people that translates into 334.5whp.

ARC option was added to this vehicle.

 

Next up was a 2009 370z with AdminTuning intakes, soho performance exhaust with test pipes.  This car with the addition of the intakes it would not idle decent because of the great breathing intakes that this car possess now.
After a few tweaks on the UpRev ROM we were able to get the car to idle great and also make some considerable gains.  Apart from the UpRev ROM both cars were fitted with the ARC system.  At the end of the night we had 2 very satisfied clients going home.  Final numbers for this black 370z was 306whp or 342.72 dyno jet numbers when the translation is performed.

ARC 2Step in action after the tune was finalized.

1990 Toyota Tacoma – Haltech PS2000

Taco3

This was a little bit of a long project for the client as the client worked diligently to put in a 1997 3.4L (5VZ-FE) motor in this chassis.   After the motor was in, the Haltech PS2000  was wired by the client.  It was fitted with some  individual GM LS1 coils and a Haltech Wideband was also put into the mix to help speed the tune.

The truck was delivered to us and after many hours of trial and error in trying to get the right configurations to start the the engine and making sure the engine was in TDC and it had not jumped a tooth or something we managed to bring it to life.  Even though we managed to start the engine it still had a noise of a miss and then the (passenger side) head started to show sign that a noise was emanating from that side.

We notified the client and he came and picked up the truck so we could take it to a Toyota specialist and have the motor diagnosed.  After a few months elapsed the truck was coming back and the problem was found and rectified.

The problem ended up being the tensioner built into the exhaust cam having a bunch of slack.

 

Taco4

Truck was brought back to now do the actual tuning on the Platinum Sport 2000, a little street tuning was done before it was loaded up on the rollers to get the final touches on the timing tables.

Taco1 Taco2 Taco5

Tuning and test were mostly done in 3rd gear.
Best power ouput was 127whp or 142whp(dyno jet) on this set up.
Down the road a TRD Supercharger will be added to deliver more WTQ since this car is going to be living doing
much rock climbing duties.

Would like to thank Nick for trusting in our recommendations, calibration and engine management system to get his project off the ground.

Panama tuning trip 1/10/17 – ’07 Nissan 350z

Category : Uncategorized

On Tuesday the day started with wanting to install some FID injectors to a RSX a TPS and start tuning this Acura, but had some mishaps on some components that were not there yet and we had to move to the next car on the day.

This was a 2007 Nissan 350z, mods are CBE / TP and Intakes.  We had tried to tune previously but the ECU was locked out so the client had to get another ecu and marry it to the engine. Once that was done I was able to install the UpRev license and start tuning this HR engine.  Car came in very poor fueling both in vacuum and wot regions. After the fueling was dialed in the car started to wake up performance wise.  After the NA calibration was finalized we moved on to the ZEX Nitrous shot that was going to be added. A colder NGK (1406) plug was installed and tuning started on the NOS. Had some issues with NOS delivery so the guy that installed the kit was called to fix the issues. Everything was sorted out and managed to squeeze and additional 75+WHP. Car needs to have its clutch replaced since it was showing signs of weakness during some of the NOS pulls.

Panama tuning trip 1/9/17 – Pulsar GTiR

Category : Uncategorized

Started the day nice and early leaving MSY at around 5:30am.  After a nice 3.5 hr flight I was in Panama Rep. of Panama awaiting my friends to show up to pick me up from Tocumen airport.
Straight from the airport to Race Lab Motorsports where the white Pulsar GTiR was waiting for me.

Met the rest of the guys from TallerNB and the owner of the white “Godzilita” GTiR to see what the new fuel set up and 28.5psi on the Borg Warner s300sxe would yield us. Seems that everything went well in the tuning sessions with a few hiccups along the way as expected. Managed to make more power on the new set up and after sorting out some minor things we believe this car is ready for the race event on the weekend.

Haltech PS1000, VVL head / stock cams/ BC spring & retainers / ID2000 / Gato racing InM / Protech ExM / BW s300sxe / Tial WG & BOV / VP Q16

ARC Features Info – Uprev Osiris

Category : Uncategorized

This car was the introduction to us into the world of UpRev tuning for the G/Z platform.

370z-1

z2

If you have a manual transmission Nissan/Infiniti vehicle and we have tuned you earlier and or need to be tuned and want this new feature, please contact us.

 

ARC Features:
2-Step Launch Control, Flat-foot shifting, Rolling anti-lag, Burnout Mod.
Models w/ ARC Support: G37 and 370Z (2009-2017), G35 and 350Z (HR and RevUp)
How to activate: Launch Control
Make sure the engine is up to temp and that you are within the required temperature range that is set in the ROM in order for the feature to activate. Be sure the car is either stationary or that your vehicle speed is below the launch vehicle speed which is set in the ROM. Push in the clutch and put the car in first gear. Push the gas pedal all the way down. The rpm should go up to the desired rpm which you have set in the rom. Live adjustment of the launch rpm can be adjusted with the cruise control toggle.

How to activate: Flat-foot shifting
Once the engine is up to temp, you are over 20 mph, and the engine speed is above 3000rpms, you can activate Flat-foot shifting. Once these requirements have been met, be sure to press the gas all the way down and when you’re ready to shift, push in the clutch while the gas pedal is still completely depressed. At this point a rev limiter will be set at the RPM you began to push the clutch in. Once this happens shift into the next gear (while still holding the gas all the way down) and then remove your foot from the clutch pedal. Important: the clutch pedal sensor is a switch type, so the ECU can only detect if it is pressed or not pressed, there is now way to adjust sensitivity. In most case the switch will detect that the clutch is depressed even if you are gently resting your foot on the clutch pedal. Therefore, be sure that when you are not trying to activate the feature you remove your foot from the clutch completely to avoid any rev limiter disturbances will driving.

How to activate: Rolling Anti-lag
Once the engine is up to temp, you are over 20 mph, and the engine speed is above 3000rpms, you can activate Rolling anti-lag. Once these requirements have been met, get up to your desired vehicle speed or RPM then press the gas all the way down at the same time you hold the Cancel cruise button – do not press the clutch pedal. At this point a rev limiter will be set at the RPM you chose until you release the cancel button. Continue to press all the way down on the gas pedal and hold the cancel button until you are ready to launch. Once you are ready to launch release the cancel button to take off.
How to activate: Burnout Mod
Turning this feature ON results in the brake-throttle safety limiter being ignored. This will allow the throttle to open fully while pressing the brake pedal at the same time so that you can begin doing a burnout.

Trouble shooting:
9 times out of 10 a feature won’t be activated because the user did not meet all the requirements set in the ROM Editor in order for the feature to activate.
Each feature, with the exception of Burnout Mod, has a minimum accelerator pedal position required in order to activate the feature. The base ROM usually will have a required voltage of around 3 volts, to put that into perspective, full WOT usually registers at about 4.2 volts. Please be sure to consult with your customers (or tuner) to see if any changes were made to your settings. Another global requirement in order for the features to activate is the oil temperature. In the base ROM we set the minimum to 140F and the maximum to 220F, meaning the oil temperature has to be within that range in order for the features to activate. These values can be changed; however, we don’t recommend any features to be used if the engine is not up to temp or if the temperature is too high – as this could result in permanent damage or engine failure.

Flat-foot shifting and Rolling anti-lag have a few extra requirements that need to be met in order for these features to activate. In the software, you can set the minimum engine speed required for the feature to activate. For example, in the base ROM we set the minimum to 3000rpm, which means you can only use these features if the engine speed is above 3000rpm. Another is the minimum vehicle speed. We set this to 20 mph in the base ROM, which means the features won’t activate unless your vehicle speed exceeds 20mph. On the other hand, for the Launch Control, we set a maximum vehicle speed requirement, this is so that the launch limiter will deactivate automatically after a set speed, and then the normal rev limiter that you have set for that map will take effect.

Each feature except for Burnout mod, allows you to control the timing and fuel. In the software, you can set the fuel compensation main target and timing main target for each individual feature. These setting only take affect while the feature is activated.

The features were designed and tested with vehicles that have cruise control, factory start buttons and ignitions, and factory clutch setups. We can’t guarantee any of the features to work if one of these components have been modified. When one of these systems are changed, the messages sent to the ECU from these components and sensors can be either altered or abandoned altogether.

Recalibration:
In the event the feature is still not activating even with a completely factory clutch, ignition, and cruise setup there are a few things you can try on your own. You can see the parameters Cruise Button Values and Clutch Pedal Switch in Logging and Tracing found in the ROM Editor. Log these parameters at the same time you are trying to activate a certain feature and note which value is being logged. For example, the 370Z should log a value of 147 for the Clutch Pedal Switch while the clutch pedal is depressed and the car is in gear (and a 146 is these conditions are not met). This value should be the same as what is set in the ARC Calibration tab in ROM Editor. The Cruise Button Values can also be changed. For example, while the clutch pedal is pressed and the car is in gear, the Cruise Button Values should log a value of 4 if holding up, an 8 if holding down, and 2 if holding the cancel cruise buttons. If the RPM live adjustment isn’t working you can double check that the ARC Calibration is set to read the correct value. If all else fails, you may also submit a technical support form and our developers will take a deeper look into your ROM.
