Upcoming MPI Swap Thread - 1989 TSi
Posted 16 November 2017 - 07:43 PM
The plan is to get it about right over the next few days, throw in a fresh wideband O2 sensor, new plugs, and let autotune adjust my VE table again driving around.
I like the progress and am looking forward to enjoying this setup while I begin sourcing parts for the next phase of the upgrade (intercooler, turbo, and some mild suspension work)

Still need some help with the cold and hot starts. Right now the hot starts need a second turn of the key to turn over. Not a huge deal because it starts everytime on second turn, but I've played with the cranking settings in Tuner Studio like cranking pulse width, priming pulse but can't solve it. One other detail is the car like the "Alternating Events" for cranking settings instead of the "Every Event."
Anyone have some ideas? Once this is resolved, I'll consider the MPI swap all officially complete. Thanks!

my eclipse was hard starting due to heat soak. that was my problem. sensor was real hot.
you could try something like this coupler and locate intake air temp sensor in the inter-cooler piping farther away from any heat source.
JUST TO TEST WITH ...
see if it makes any difference. other wise you could be chasing a ghost setting that might not need adjusting at all.
