We are developing a ECU-based closed loop boost control for the evos and have been doing some R&D in the last week on my personal EVO 8.

So far the data is great and I am really excited with the results.

One of the biggest problems with the stock boost control solenoid on the EVO is that, even tuned with different pills, the response and spool rate was always behind a good MBC.

With our new ECU-based boost control, we keep all the factory safe-guards but lose all the factory shortcomings mentioned above. Lightning fast spool, even better than a MBC so far in our testing!, fast response that the stock solenoid cannot match and the ability to custom tailor the boost curve with complete control.

The other great benefit of this system is for people that want to run separate 91 octane tunes and race gas tunes. No more having to pop the hood and twist the MBC to up the boost for the race gas tune and hope that you set it right. Now this is fully controlled by the ecu reflash. Reflash your 91 octane tune to your race gas tune and your boost is set already. Reflash back to your 91 octane tune and your boost is reset to your 91 octane tune.

Here is a comparison between a MBC and our new ECU-based boost control:
(Test run is our new boost control, Base Run is MBC)

http://www.norcalmotorsports.org/users/bryan/mods/EVO/evo_tunes/me/boost_control_020307/gstboost_vs_mbc.jpg

Ignition timing was not changed, AFR was changed to match the MBC tune. (11.5 AFR on 100 octane)

Expect more news soon as we continue to develop this!

also, i'm so glad to see this finally going somewhere, i've been asking about it alot. Great way to keep the engine looking stock, and if it works better than the stock system is capable of that's even better

Interesting stuff - maybe I switched to a mbc too soon!

Out of curiousity, bryan, how stable is the boost with your new setup? Even with error correction turned way down, my boost seemed to fluctuate with the stock boost solenoid.

are you guys using a different boost solenoid?

Ah, so is this the "secret sauce" you were referring to earlier?

Man, you car makes a lot of power on 100! You're running the stock turbo, right?

Just wondering what you can do to support a ECUflash / ECU+ setup. I want to limit the amount of times I reflash my car (ok, not like I'm going to be tracking or anything), so what can be done for this? I would guess that there's some middle ground somewhere for the boost settings?

EDIT -- aw f it. I want this. :)

Yes, still stock 05 turbo. Hasn't been off the car. No porting or anything. Maybe it will blow up soon so I have a excuse to upgrade. ;)

Currently it is ECU controlled only. I do believe they are working on boost control with the ECU+ though.

damn brayn, That is INCREDIBLE. 20+ hp/tq gain from that setup. I assume the "loss" from the MBC is due to it being a bleeder type? You got me hooked already man. Let me know when this puppy is ready for the public, absolutely outstanding. I realize the difference between 100 and 91 octane, so the gains may not be as substantial, but that graph you have there looks like a IX with the flat torque curve there. PLEASE keep us/me updated, pretty sweet break through!

ECU will still work the same as always as far as fueling is concerned. Open Loop at WOT (off the fuel map) and Closed Loop at cruise, idle, etc (off the front 02 sensor feedback).

Think of the boost control as exactly like stock but better. ;)

Yes we will once we get everything ironed out with it. I agree, this chart isn't the best study and isn't really meant to be, just a teaser. ;) I was going to swap the MBC back on yesterday but I threw my car on the dyno between customers so I didn't have much time.

We will have a full case study with boost curve overlays, etc etc in due time. ;) There will be no smoke and mirrors here, you can quote me on that.

Got lots of headroom my friend. The car comes off the dyno and sees the track for hours in 95F+ to 50F temperatures and asphalt and rain and all that real-world stuff so it's a medium sizzle tune, and not even a Evo 9. ;)

I've actually been meaning to make a "Defcon 4, set to kill, this one goes to 11" tune on the car and see what it could really do.

But alas, this isn't really what this thread is about.

24.4psi peak according to the log. Stock turbo, stock un-ported manifold, stock un-ported 02 housing, stock UICP and couplers. 2.75" DP. None of the shiny tubular stuff you seem to like ;)

So far, 340whp, all day, every day with a stock engine bay:

and yet you just got to 340whp and started using ecu boost control...lol

in fact, there is no concrete correlation between my eip 350whp and your md 340whp readings....as evident by increvoviii's lower eip dyno numbers (and correlating that with his run at gst facilities earlier). but we'll put this to the test soon enough :p

That's funny, everyone was comparing our dynos as the same until one person dynoed lower between the two even though EIP themselves said the car had bad gas. Interesting. Yet Andy dynoed on both awhile back within a couple days, if not the same day and they where exactly the same. That's interesting too.

If you would have not been busy buffing your car out all day for it to sit at a parking garage show we could have seen what your car would have made on the GST dyno. ;)

I also didn't "just start" using ECU-based boost control either. I had used it when ECUflash first came out with medicore results because of the stock solenoid. Now we have something better, so now I am using it. :)

lol, are you really trying to diss all the evo members that went to J's? O.o But in actuality i buffed my car after parking at J's since it is one of my duties of being sponsored. And I would of loved to make it to the gst dyno day, but unfortunatley i was helping a friend with his new turbo installation throughout the night. But as I said, this issue will be put to rest soon enough...

ST, Car looks awesome, makin lots of power, looks like a cool show car, woulda been cool to see how the car did at the GST meet, glad you have a way of boost control you like!

As someone who has used both the EIP dyno and the GST dyno, as well as my own I have this to say about the subject about how they read.

The three dynos read extremely close.

-In one instance, I dynoed my own EVO8 when it was on the stock turbo and stock ECU at EIP and then went to GS (now GST) on the same tank of gas, and the result was it made a little less hp at GS.

-Drifter8 on racegas came by my shop and got a baseline run on our DynoDynamics soon after his tune at GST and made a little less on our DynoDynamics.

-I took my stand alone ECU'd GT30R EVO8 that made 369 on my dyno to the GST dynoday, and on the same day only made 366.

-Devin's 03' GSR made 285 at EIP and 285 on our DynoDynamics.

The difference has never been large enough and really has gone both ways between the various dynos. That leads me to believe that the difference is really small.

Additionally, the 3 dynos do load up the car differently from my experience, but all produce good tunes. Also, the stock ECU can be very finicky and the consistency of the car can vary.

I think the real comparison would be to take our cars to the drag strip and see how they trap and their ET's.

Lots of timing you running there buddy. You must still be on 100 octane!? The boost is holding up well at a "Load Calc" of 190-200! Excellent work. I think I will want to hook up my stock boost controller after seeing that. Are you ready to release it soon?

isn't that load calc on stock inj scaling? i would think you would be around 250ish (multiply values by 636/513)... timing is nuts though, like 21 at 7k? geez... freakin impressive. No wheel spin in 1st!?!?!

Yea the load calc is totally off since I run 720cc. I never really use load calc to pin point where I am on the map anyway so I usually don't change it to suit my car since I tune more cars with stock injectors. You can still see how the load curves are either way though.

Timing is kind of an illusion on that log since the car is never really below 6,000 rpm except for 1st where I did a roll on to WOT at about 14mph.

Tires where a bit warmed up by the time I did this log so the R-compounds where doing their job. ;)

Some more data:

I can run stock boost to maxed out stock turbo with this system. With 26psi, I am using 75% wastegate duty cycle settings in the ECU @ 3500rpm. With 24psi, 65-68% WGDC.

On 9's, 22psi, 69% WGDC. 24psi, 72% WGDC.

Lots of headroom still. This is with NO boost spikes at all. I can run 100% WGDC up to within about 300 RPM of my boost target and still no spike. That helps spool and transitional response tremendusly.

This system can also run full boost in 1st and 2nd gears with no spikes, something I have yet to see the stock system do with any kinda of respectable spool. It actually can be made to spool so fast and hard in the lower gears that I need to actually lower it because I fear I will break something. ;)

Here is a EVO 9 with cosworth cams and a HFC, the green plot is boost . This was a totally custom tailored boost curve for this car. Since it had a HFC, it got grumpy if we held higher boost past 6,000 so we gradually tapered it to 7400 rpm but where still able to make it hold well until then, no sudden drops or dips.

http://www.norcalmotorsports.org/users/bryan/mods/EVO/evo_tunes/whtrice/whtrice_91octane_boostafr.jpg

Here is a factory boost system on another EVO 9 with the solenoid restrictor removed, again green is the boost plot:

http://www.norcalmotorsports.org/users/bryan/mods/EVO/evo_tunes/james_evo9_020307/dyno_afr_boost.jpg

A different restrictor size on the compressor housing side will help a bit with fine tuning that curve on the stock system, but you have to source those pills and make sure you don't go too small or too large. We will have a comparison with that soon as well.

Here is a EVO 9 with a MBC, notice the spike:

Hmmm...When you say there is more head room for the 9 whats your estimation if this customer say went with a rally cat instead of a HFC.

It actually can be made to spool so fast and hard in the lower gears that I need to actually lower it because I fear I will break something. ;)

Here is a EVO 9 with cosworth cams and a HFC, the green plot is boost . This was a totally custom tailored boost curve for this car. Since it had a HFC, it got grumpy if we held higher boost past 6,000 so we gradually tapered it to 7400 rpm but where still able to make it hold well until then, no sudden drops or dips.

Here is a factory boost system on another EVO 9 with the solenoid restrictor removed, again green is the boost plot:

A different restrictor size on the compressor housing side will help a bit with fine tuning that curve on the stock system, but you have to source those pills and make sure you don't go too small or too large. We will have a comparison with that soon as well.

Here is a EVO 9 with a MBC, notice the spike:

yes, I believe so. Derek and I where talking about that the other day. The one nice thing about having a EBC over the ecu-based boost control is that you can change boost on the fly in the car, without a laptop and reflashing the ecu. However it costs much more itself.



You think something like the Perrin Boost Solenoid would help?


Yes it would help. I would wait a little while before purchasing the Perrin solenoid however. ;)



Hmmm...When you say there is more head room for the 9 whats your estimation if this customer say went with a rally cat instead of a HFC.


Both 8's and 9's have close to the same headroom with the stock turbos. More flow (like from a test pipe) could create more boost so the actual WGDC would have to be lowered, not raised. :) 100% WGDC means the ecu is trying to keep the wastegate flapper totally closed so all the exhaust flow is being used to spin the turbine. Number between 100% and 0% are regulating the flapper.

More data,

This is using a factory stock boost solenoid and lines, a custom sized restrictor pill on the compressor side to replace the factory restrictor pill, no pill on the solenoid side.

Was able to make a little more boost and create a little more control with this. Still doesn't hold as much up top but that could be because the pill needs to be even smaller.

Well it appears that "dial a pill" is a more tedious way to set up since you have to experiment and get the right size pill aperture for the boost response you want. Solenoid can be controlled by duty cycle and ECU regulation.

Bryan, do you expect an aftermarket turbo like...say...ahem...a certain 20G to create any significant challenges when it comes to controlling boost with the ECU? It sounds like you've pretty much perfected the ECU boost control thing on the stock snail (91 & 100 octane IIRC) but I'm wondering what, if any, little surprises might throw off the ECU (as it relates to boost control) once you introduce another 10lbs-12lbs per minute of airflow to the setup.

I'm with you there. But the only thing I wonder about is using ECU+ for the 100 octane map over a 91 octane ECUFlash map. If we're forced to reflash for each type, I might end up staying with 91 or always making a mixture of 91 and 100.

All flash has a life expectancy. Most non-retarded flash devices can be reprogrammed tens of thousands, to millions of times. I'm sure Mitsu just figured it wasn't a big deal, so they use the onboard flash in the SH2. Eventually, when you program with the cable, you'll get verification errors, so you just have to keep reprogramming over and over again until everything verifies correctly. I obviously haven't had personal experience with this yet, but it's the main reason why I have two ECUs.

Is the SH2 what's in the ECU+ or in the OEM ECU? Sorry I haven't been following this thread so am a bit confused on that point.

100 times for the OEM ECU would be worrying, since each time you adjust a map and flash it to do a test pull counts as one reflash. Has anybody here or on EvoM run into that limit?

Matz
03-19-2007, 02:11 PM
Sorry everyone, I don't want to muddle the conversation regarding Bryan's efforts with the BCS, so I'll try to be quick here:

The OEM ECU uses a Hitachi SH2. The ECU+ uses an Atmel AVR and some kind of DSP. The SH2 has a 100 cycle flash limit, and yes that means you'll have problems once you get to your 100th flash. Yes, people on evom have had this problem already.

My car has the ECU+ in it. I am getting an ECUFlash tune from Bryan tomorrow, and that will be for 91 octane. To combat the flash limit, I was hoping to get a 100 octane tune eventually with the ECU+, which has about 100x the flash life. But my main question was whether or not this new fancy way of controlling boost will work properly if the ECU+ is in charge of altering fuel and timing.

Before ECUFlash, it was the best for datalogging IMO. Now that there are all of these sweet tools for the Tactrix cable, the performance advantage is tough to assess. I honestly don't know. The datalogging rate is still way better on the ECU+, I think, but if tuners can work with the Tactrix-compatible tools, it's an easier and way more cost-effective solution.

how would you get a second ECU to run? isn't it somewhat matched with the key to your ignition or can you change the immobilizer to make it run?

on topic: so is it the GM solenoid? i see plenty of subarus that are using it now (with great results - 300-400 RPM quicker spool) and read about a handful of other turbo cars running them. Also, do you use the 10ohm resistor in it?

Depends on the hardware and if the piggyback controls boost through Wastegate Duty Cycle (most likely).

ECU+ does not have boost control yet.

I think it depends on the functionality of the controller in this system.* There is usually some sort of wear leveling technology which equals the load rewritten/erased to the storage.* The overall endurance would then also depend on the percentage of flash storage used versus unused....

This must be a basic EEPROM type or else endurance wouldn't be quoted so low.* Usually this type of storage has a minimum and maximum rating.* So in this case, if they're quoting 100 , then maximum is probably something like 1000 so it'll be somewhere in between when you start to see blocks start to fail.* If there's some sort of ECC and bad block management then this would be increased even more.... so 300+ times is entirely possible.

I don't know if this is something you exactly want to 'run to the max.' I wonder what happens if you have a corrupt map!

Matz
03-19-2007, 10:22 PM
It would be interesting to see if they've got write balancing s/w in the controller. I wish I could read the disassembly and identify those parts... maybe in time. The embedded processors we use at work have that in their flash libraries, but it's all smoke and mirrors to me. :)

Ok, let's get back on topic. Who's getting some sauce next? ;)

You don't need any pills with a 3-port solenoid.

From what I have seen:

3-port solenoid:

Pros:
1. Quicker response
2. No pills needed, straight vac hose
3. Quicker spool

Cons:

1. Isn't stock
2. Have to cut and tap some wires
3. Little louder than stock sometimes (like a EBC)

Upgraded boost hose pill with stock solenoid

Pros:

1. Stealthy stock
2. No cutting needed

Cons:

1. Not as accurate
2. Slightly slower response
3. Slightly slower spool

That is what I have found so far. We offer both in our tunes in addition to EBC's and MBC's so it's more up to what the end-user is looking for.

There are other solenoids that do the same thing (i think the perrin is 3 port?) but cost 2+ times the price.

I would spend $40 over $5 knowing that boost control is one of the most important ingredients to a tune. Fuel and timing depend on boost...

With shipping it's about $35 or so + vac lines + labor + tax. ;)

And yes for the price it's great!

You can search for a discount code on the internet saves you extra $$ from Rockauto.com (forgot what it was, friend found it when he bought his).

$5 pill option still provides all the manipulation you would get with the 3port...just different way of doing things utilizing the same routines/commands...+ it would look 100% stock to a dealer..

true for the most part. I guess since i havent had a warranty for over a year i don't think about what the hell a dealer thinks :P

Installed the 10ohm resistor today... we'll see if anything weird happens since it was tuned without the resistor. However, my guess is that the solenoid will switch fast enough despite the extra load. I miss the clean resistorless look... I should have put it on the ECU side instead. :(

cool, ya turns out spoolin and i couldn't find a 10ohm 1W resistor at radio shack, all they had was 10ohm 10W which was about as big as a full finger. Ordered (lame) a couple from digikey and they are a normal lookin resistor. Didn't have any problems (that i know of yet) since wiring it in. We felt the solenoid after a long drive w/o the resistor and it didn't feel hot at all. Oh well better safe than sorry i guess...

Yeah, if MalibuJack recommends the resistor, it's good enough for me, even if I did the calculations.

A tune... with either an upgraded boost pill or purchase the GM 3 port sensor as shown above.

dont people just drill out the stock pill and make it a little larger? how hard is it to tune for that type of set up?

on the contrary people use a smaller pill. It is fairly easy to tune for this setup, but not unless you have done some reading and know what to play with and what the car can handle. I assume you are going to do it yourself? Definately search through here and EvoM for the info. It's not that complicated, but can be confusing at first.

I'm actually kicking around something to make it a bit easier to get the necessary hardware out to people that want to use it that don't need and/or can't come in for custom tunes with it and want to try / do it themselves. Stay tuned.

dunno..maybe I didnt post it in accident. I said the easiest way to get the proper pill to folks for remote tunes is to get the proper pill and insert it into pre-cut hoses, so the end user just has to swap out the hose instead of having to mess with the pill, makes reverting to stock easy as well. Might want to check if works has filed a patent for a rubber hose with a small hole drilled in it however :P

The funny part is when you get a P2 and ask for the stock hose back... :shock:

No worries there, we fingered it out all by our own brainwaves. In fact, it's even different than the "open source" knowledge of the evom thread.

I just want people to have access to something already R&D'd, tested, and working in the real world, on the streets and the track. Anybody can go do it themselves as well, but I've always found it more convenient to just be able to buy a finished product. I don't even really plan on making a million dollars off it. My way of giving back, so to speak. ;)

There will always be people that want to tinker themselves, and people that just want someone else to do it for them. I want to give everyone those options.

I want it to be something you can purchase, install, set a base setting with ecuflash and either leave it there or tinker with it. Some might say that is counter-productive to the services I offer, it might be, but it's how I started as well. ;) Power to da people. Viva la tooning! ;)

woah... revolutionary!!! LOL.. No i think that it is a really good thing you're doing. Your giving everyone a chance to have something that works, whether it be a purchased product or a self-made system. I believe it's fair and i applaud you for not trying to go all "patent-status" bullcrap. Cant wait to see results...

AHHH YES!!!!!!!! IM FINALLY A CANYON RACER!!!!!! FINALLY!!!

cool, would this be something that we could do like buy a pill from you that is set to the right size, or would we mod our own parts?
