I am planning on doing a full youtube channel under my screen-name for the soul purpose of making "how to" tuning videos... If there is a function in TunerStudio you want explained, or you have a tuning issue and would like a video version of my explanation [with the open software to show you what to click and why im doing it] I am open for ideas on my first video!! I want to do some basic videos first and work up to the more advanced stuff but i dont mind going out of my way to make one to suit a specific need.

A link to the channel. Enjoy!

How to fix the parking lot surges, or low speed bucking.
This stuff is golden
Datalog the issue and I will look at it and we can see what needs to be done. I can do a video on it if the information is good.
Likely the afr is lean or if the cam needs a high stall, over advancing the timing will cause a bucking sensation.

Thank You, you are and this forum is a wonderful resource for those of us who chose megasquirt with out enough tuning knowledge
I appreciate the kind words, It takes alot of time to make the videos and help people sort through the information when they have a problem. If you are interested in some one on one training I offer tuning classes and remote tuning services, PM me for details on these.

What about setting up the overrun? At least I think thats the setting. When I lift off the throttle it goes extremely rich for a second or two before coming back to stoic.

Sure but you dont want overrun to come on instantly, its more of a fuel cut during engine breaking or long coast times.

You are looking to cut fuel when you lift check the Accel Enrichments settings, what is the decel fuel % set to? Usually its set to 100% you can try cutting this down to 80% and see if that helps.

I would give you a video but my vehicle wont move on its own yet.

I think I found that setting and put it at 50% just to see what would happen. However I haven't had my car running since then to be able to check. I'll move it to 80% and go from there.

H i Everyone,
I am working on a 96 gt with a 4.6 2v engine. I am in the process of doing an on3 single turbo kit with a MS3X running the show. It started yesterday and idled fairly well with fixed timing of 10 deg. I'm to the point i want to start setting up my timing table. I have no idea what the stock table looks like. I know I can start with the stock table and then take out 1 deg for each psi of boost as a safe starting point. Does anyone know where I can find the stock table so that I can use that as a starting point? Also, if anyone knows of a good tuner for my setup in the Orlando area I could definitely use the recommendation.
Thanks in advance,
John
