Basically, if you are running with correct AFRs and no concerns, there really isn't a reason to get involved in this.
If you were still awaiting corrections/adjustments, then start over with the new version.

So I installed the AEM CAI and put in the new base calibration for FI, let it get to temp then drove it around the block.

So now to wait until tomorrow to do another drive around and then get some data logging.

The idle is smoother than I thought it would be, its just a little rough maybe tomorrow after the other cycle if will feel a bit better, other than that everything is fine.

woot

Was out logging today, didn't double-check the rpms on the AP, got back inside load up the log and it's 39xx rpm. God damn it. That rpm counter is off :P So back on the road tomorrow then.

Yeah - the OE tach is about 300 RPM high in most cases.

Jeff: quick question that I didn't see addressed in the 1st post.

After I load the base calibration, do the drive cycles, and logging, what map should I use to drive around with until you get back to us?
Can I use the 1e_2a that I had been running before?

I would say keep running that base map, but drive it carefully until you get the proper calibrations.

so should we go by the AP's reading of the actual RPMs for that run? I'm guessing quite a few people would be using the tach for the measure instead of watching the AP.

I'd like to know this as well since I haven't received anything from Jeff since.

Its up to you. Its your car!
If you have a tuned calibration - use it.
Otherwise, the base calibration should run more or less like stock on 90% of the cars out there.

I had a map you loaded on the car @ the dyno day back in May. really rich in most areas but it works.
Base calibration run #1 complete: car runs well / idles well.
I'll shoot you an email tomorrow with logs.

thanks Jeff!

The base calibration worked very well on my RX8 Jeff. Thanks for taking the time to revamp everything with these firmware updates!

this may be a noob question but does it matter if we drove during the 2 drive cycles for more than "a few minutes" - thx

The point is to at least be driving for a few minutes. I imagine anything more than that would be fine.

Let me know if you need anything else :D

By the way MM on the 10 deadly questions I sent you my current setup but on saturday I am installing the new turbo with the injectors if they arrive next week like you said if not then without the injectors.

My question is. After you send me the new map for my current setup, do you want me to send you a new email with the 10 deadly questions for the new setup so you can make the new map?

yeah, I know how I could compensate for it, but the problem is I had already sent off my logs using the tach as a judge, not the AP. So my log is showing closer to 4000 rpm now... will that still work or should I resubmit or what?

I think you have to be at 4200 before you go into open loop and he needs to see open loop. What was your stft at 4000?
