I dunno exactly what your target dwell was there, but you did it wrong.

Are you talking across the board or just the 6000rpm and above?

Across the board.
You've called for a different dwell time at different RPM points and most of them are under 3.6ms.

I took the OEM dwell table, I then took the Bosch base dwell of 3.5 and divided it by the oem base dwell (3ms) (3.5/3 = 1.67) and multiplied the dwell table values by this amount.

What did I miss?

didn't you say you only adjusted the dwell from 6000rpm upwards ? I think that is why MM is ?

So far I have only adjusted 6000+ to 3.8 as the change to 3.5 up to there was fine. It was struggling above there though.

Bosch dwell of 3.5 divided by OE Dwell of 3 equals 1.16.
Just multiply the whole table by 1.16.
Sheesh.

Sorry, you are right. I miss typed. I had 1.16666666667 and I think I went cross eyed .

Other than the difference between 1.1666666666666666666666666666667 and 1.16, that is what I have.

So basically the BHR Coil Dwell should look something similiar to this

I did 1.45 per Ray's advice on this new build.... either way they have an internal safety of 8ms...

Cool man; I'll need a ride though - or I'll be rolling in a buds busted 240...HAHA

I just want to state for the record that this thread sucks ***. My brain still hurts and I've read the damn thing 3 times in as many days.

The best advice I've gotten out of it was to follow Jedi's example and grab Jeff by the neck!

----------

So somewhere between mid page 2 and the end of page 3 I thought I had it all figured out.... Really simple **** for my LS2 coils too...

LS2 base dwell = 5ms
Stock base dwell = 3 ms

5/3 = 1.66666....

Open up ATR, go to the dwell table and multiply the whole thing by 1.666666

Then Kane's comment, apparently recommended by Ray to multipy by 1.45 instead?

WTF people?

To make matters even more confusing LS2 coils apparently have their own termination, assumedly for self-preservation, so then I can't help but wonder why we don't just max out the friggin table!

Have the BHR guys posted a dedicated dwell thread for the BHR coils that I simply haven't been able to locate? Can someone link to it if so?

The idea is you want the shortest dwell possible that doesn't missfire. The same way you want the lest fuel possible that doesn't run lean.

The Mazda service manual has the dwell at approx 3.8ms dwell at idle and the LS2 is at 5....so if 1.45 gets then great, if not do 1.66.

This is the table from another source.
Volts Dwell
8 9.5
9 7.7
10 5.9
11 4.9
12 4.2
13 3.7
14 3.3
15 2.9

I originally ran the +66% to hit 5ms. After some chatting with Ray I went down to +45% and it worked just fine. Since switching to much richer tables I just did +55% across the board and called it a day.

I'm at +45% now and digging it. May revisit in a couple weeks when I put on this bolt on.

Knowing stock 3.8 helps a bitunderstanding wise. I missed that.

Thanks Kane, Jedi, and Flashwong

In the case of the BHR Coils

Soooo scaling the entire ingitor dwell time table isn't hard...
I've have 2 tunes saved now ... one scaled at an m value of 1.66 (66%) and another at 1.45 (45%)

Neither of these look anything like the BHR Dwell table shown in the first post by the OP of the thread. I'm guessing this should be updated or deleted for clarity?

Kanes statement in post #91 confused me slightly just when I thought I had it all fingered out (yes I said fingered)
Understanding that you want the shortest dwell time possible without a miss fire, as mentioned already, Mazda aims for 3.8ms dwell (not base dwell, correct?) and the LS2 coils aims for 5ms.

Confirmation of math and values:
To arrive at these values you add the value on the dwell time table to 3.0 ms?

Example OEM = @ 12.75 volts at 1000 rpm dwell time is 1208 .... therefore 1.208ms + 3.0ms = 4.208ms

Example BHR +45% dwell = @ 12.75 volts at 1000 rpm dwell time is 1752 .... therefore 1.752ms + 3ms = 4.752ms

Example BHR +66% dwell = @ 12.75 volts at 1000 rpm dwell time is 2013 .... therefore 2.013ms + 3ms = 5.013ms

Holy crap I think I get it.
Yes?

I can't believe this thread persists.

The OE table yields a dwell setting of 3.5ms. Everywhere.
That is all the numbers mean from a practical standpoint.

If you don't believe that, take a scope to the coil trigger and see for yourself.

Now divide your target dwell by the OE dwell (ie 5ms/3.5ms=1.428) and multiply the WHOLE TABLE by this number.

Done.

^^^^ AAAAAAA HA!!!!
I'm glad I asked!

So it's not 3.0ms its 3.5ms, I was never completely confident that I was using the right value.

Thanks MM that's what I did, except I used the wrong base value.
Honestly I tried to find it in the Mazda Shop Manual.

Done and DONE.

bumping this (as well as starting controversy) just for you, pal

I've since concluded that using a multiplier on the existing Mazda dwell map, while it is easy to do and works, is not really ideal.

instead, I took the attached factory D585 coil dwell table and using the same multiplier concept came up with a new dwell table that closer approximates it in a general manner along with consideration for the Renesis output characteristic and rpm limit considerations. My reasoning is that IMO the Mazda dwell table is a bit off in this regard.

The Mazda dwell table has built-in "error correction" of sorts that you are defeating by modifying the scaling to be more mathematically correct.

I verified the real-world dwell values using a scope.
