There was a bug on the very first S40s with the turbo control function. No idea what, Stealth sent it back to be updated.
The car was built, and a running in map put on, with the turbo just running on waste gate boost.
Once it was run in, it then blew up again the first time a boost limit was used, and had to go back again.

It's been fine since, so they were just issues with brand new products.

I have heard it rumoured my issue is not an unknown one to Emerald ECUs......so hopefully it will be an easy fix  ::)

As of now, all the coding is done, apart from the Prolific support, which I'll do this week.
I need to redo the logo, and the front page, also hopefully this week.

I'm then on holiday for a week, so this should be released around 15th August barring any unforeseen dramas.   :o  :D

I also want to do a series of videos to show how to connect and change things, although it's all fairly straight forward. And a website, with some more information on.

Well I was partially right....my fault was the ECU injector drivers going down, however the cause was that the injectors were the wrong impedance causing the injector drivers to overheat and overload which in turn made them go in to a built in overload protection mode.

Interestingly Karl from Emerald stumbled across this thread and sent me the following message....

'Hi Tim,

I have just stumbled on a post from you on the JMR forum about linking to an Android device.  This must have been from around the time we were half way up the 'ignition freezing' garden path.

As it happens I was trying to find a completely different post for another customer that demonstrated linking the Emerald ECU to an Nexus 7 via a OBD Bluetooth dongle...

The K3/K6 ECU will link to most Apple/Android apps via OBD Bluetooth or WiFi dongles.  The stand out app for the Android is 'Torque' which enables you to drive numerous gauges, datalog ECU info along with GPS & g data from the device and also record videos with gauge overlays.

There is a little mention of it here on the Emerald website (http://www.emeraldm3d.com/articles/oct2012/).
We'll have to do an update with more information soon.

Let me know if you want to update the firmware to enable this option.

Best regards,
Karl'

What do you think, shall I get the upgrade?

I don't have Emerald or Torque, so I can't comment I'm afraid.
For the outlay, it's got to be worth a try though.

Some final screen shots:







Prolific support complete as well, so I'm pretty much ready to go. I'm on holiday for a week, then I'll tie up a couple of loose ends, and release.  :D

So, with winter closing in, meaning sitting in the car coding was getting much less appealing, I needed an alternative solution to testing code.

A few emails back and forth with Martin of MEF Motorsport, and a plan was hatched. A couple of days later, and a parcel landed on my desk. I now have this sitting in my office:



I can now write code, and test it without having to go to the car. The dials allow me to "adjust" the throttle, coolant temp, etc while sitting at my desk.

A massive thanks to Martin, great quality piece of kit, and worked straight away.

Exciting news - it's finally here!!! :D

It doesn't appear in the search results yet, but you can get to it using this link:

I still need to add guides on how to log, and change the dashboard layouts, which will come over the weekend with a bit of luck.

S40 Pro, did think about S60 but don't really need the added features to be honest.
