First post here.
I have owned LT1 Edit for a couple years and just a month ago purchased an 02 TA. Been playing LS1 sponge for this perod, trying to understand what's up in this engine.
I bought Ease Daignostics for the 02, as it is the only one available that would support my Compaq iPAQ (handheld) as well as a pc based package.
It really threw me when I saw 18-22 degrees timing at wot! I though it just couldn't be right and perhaps the Ease software was just wrong. Seems, if you check out the LS1 Edit features at www.carputing.com
that there is 2 timing tables, high octane & low octane (that's what they are called) and the pcm is testing timming and automaticaly determining which maps to use. In my part of the world the gas this time of year is oxegenated (sp?) and perhaps that's why, but I doubt it.
I'm told by the author of LT1/LS1 Edit that an 02 pcm can be readily replaced by a 00 pcm and therefore LS1 Edit could be used now. NE1 have experience with that? 01-02 support in LS1 Edit isn't scheduled till late this year.
Also, ne1 have some insight to torque management?
I've not had an A4 before and never cared to understand the tuning aspects for one with LT1 Edit (my 96 is M6) and now I'm wanting to understand the deeper workings of what goes on in the automatic tranny world. Seems harder shifts and higher shift points are in order.
Yes, somewhere in internet land there NEEDS to be a tuning resource for the LS1. I've been searching hard for almost a month and what I have found is very little hard information.
