I can certainly find/dump a stock 4.8 or 5.3 (or whatever) tune. Which cam is in each car? Stock GM truck?
5.3 from a 2001 GMC Yukon (drive by cable)
5.3 from a 2004 Chevy Silverado 2500 (drive by wire)

Re: 1990 Geo Storm GSI - Advice/Suggestions? #18

By the way, I have an HPTuners license (and interface), so I can at least read GM ECUs, and view tunes uploaded by others to the HPT website. So I can rip particular maps (VE, injector compensation, etc) out of factory tunes if you're interested. Yes, I would be interested - however I don't have a ...

Re: 1990 Geo Storm GSI - Advice/Suggestions? #18

Jersey City, NJ?!? I go to MahWah, NJ often (at least 6-8 times a year) for work. Mildly amusing. Anyway, I'm going to put the drive-by-wire on my 1965 Impala and continue to run the stock ECM. However, on my 1985 TransAm, I'm going to put the drive-by-cable and eventually install the rusEFI system....

Re: 1990 Geo Storm GSI - Advice/Suggestions? #18

Ok, So I've got two LS engines lined up. One for my Trans Am swap, and one for my Impala swap; both are complete and ready to run with harness, ECM, and accessories (alternator, water pump, etc.). One LS is drive-by-wire and the other is drive-by-cable. My question... 1.) Does rusEFI support drive-b...

Not sure if anyone knows about this site, but there is a LOT of information on Chevy engines that were fuel injected. This page was built specifically for engine swaps. It has pinouts for the ECMs based on years, trouble shooting, etc.

Re: 1990 Geo Storm GSI - Advice/Suggestions? #18

What year is the engine? Rather, which crank trigger wheel does it have? Late (post-2005 ish) engines use a 60-2 trigger wheel like tons of European engines, and are well supported. Early engines (pre-2005, like mine) use a 24x wheel which is supported in theory, but I don't think have ever actuall...

Yes, as I already have the WBO2, I'll just use it in the crossover on my exhaust (when I get that part built). I have no idea why I was even asking about the other O2 sensor...just a dumb moment I guess... lol

Re: 1990 Geo Storm GSI - Advice/Suggestions? #18

What do you expect from NO2? Why would you use it?
I was hoping for a basic/rough AFR that can be used with TunerStudio's autotune to get a basic start. Then manually fine tune it from there.

Is there an option for multiple O2 sensors (example: left bank and right bank)?
Does the firmware now support 1 wire (oem cheap crap) O2 sensors or only wide-band still?

Re: 1990 Geo Storm GSI - Advice/Suggestions? #18

Ok, so I believe I figured it out... I used the wrong firmware; I used the "rusefi_bundle.zip" and it didn't work with TS. When I looked at all the firmware options, I tried "rusefi+bundle_frenkenso_na6.zip", and it worked great with TS. I also don't have the "disconnects" that I had when I first st...

Re: 1990 Geo Storm GSI - Advice/Suggestions? #18

Limited telepathic abilities - which of two communication channels are you using and why? I believe you can adjust baud rate setting in TS for USB/TTL and I prefer using microUSB based real USB anyway. On the stm32 card, I use the miniUSB for power, and use the "PROG" miniUSB on the Frankenso 0.4 b...

Did something change to the connection with the new firmware? I just downloaded it, wiped the stm32, and installed the new firmware. It boots up like it usually does (can see the LCD like before), but I can't connect at 38400. I can connect at 115200, but it's very unstable. With TunerStudio, I can'...

Re: 1990 Geo Storm GSI - Advice/Suggestions? #18

I've been using the soldering butt connectors for a while with a good success rate. There are a few I'll have to redo - usually when I'm not paying attention, but overall they work as described. They use a lower temp solder, and as long as you use the heat gun properly, you won't overheat the shrink...

Re: 1990 Geo Storm GSI - Advice/Suggestions? #18

Nice, I did not know that the micro-USB on the STM32 discovery board did not have a baud rate. So, hypothetically, we can bump that up to max and test then slowly drop till we get a stable connection at it's fastest.

Re: 1990 Geo Storm GSI - Advice/Suggestions? #18

I will definitely do that. We are not talking baud rate, but INI blockReadTimeout settings correct? After looking at the debug log, I think starting at 5000 may be a good spot (5seconds) then go from there (increasing by 250ms or decreasing by 250ms). But this will have to be in about 2 weeks when I...

Re: 1990 Geo Storm GSI - Advice/Suggestions? #18

It's the miniUSB on the Frankenso board (not discovery board). But it also happens when I use the microUSB on the discovery board.

When I get back, I'll definitely change INI file.
