DTC supression is needed if we do things the ecu doesn´t like, like disconnecting MAF sensor. In case of EU2 tune, this is something that was available for some markets and therefore the switch was configure to set all kind of monitors and stuff to accept for the new hardware.

It should easily work that way, if not just let me know.

tflow,

The EU2 software for the E46 is the standard factory software used here in Australia. It is very hard to find post-cat sensors fitted here.

I am running a twin 200 cell cat system without any problems with the factory software, no sensor mods or anything.

Danial,

thanks for the help.

Tweaking the injection map is working.

Question.

1) what maps do we tuned for ignition? there is almost 5 ignition maps, would making changes to basic ignition map be enough?

2) how do I incorporate afr readings to BMWlogger? I have a innovate wideband, but I have no idea how to link the afr to the logger.

I am still learning to tune and familiarise with the software. really appreciate all your help.

cheers!!

Thank you! I am trying to get the logger to work, but keep getting packet error when i try to connect. It retrieves fault codes fine. Ive flashed both the 512 and 64kb files to the dme doesnt make any difference. Not sure if i need to use that key file in some way?

Hi All

Just want to say thanks so much for all the hard work on this! Looks like there's lots of fun to be had.

Apologies if I'm asking in the wrong place, or I need to look into this further:

I'm looking to modify the M54B25 - If I find a MS540056 B25 version, my understanding is I can use the definition file you guys have created, to tweak things like PWM fan control idle speed, etc... But...Is it also possible to flash my current 325 DME to use MS540056 program code with the inpa tool suite (assuming you can figure out the prog number, and right software suite)...?

Is there any option in the def file you've created to disable EWS for M54B25? I would like to add a car starter, and not have the key taped up under my dash where someone can easily find it?

Lastly since my car is a fail-o-matic I'd need to re-code it and add SA205 back?

thanks !

Jonathan

So what is all needed to tune our ms43's? Tuner pro, BMW logger, and we can read / write the files with galletto? I'm local to Alex and I'm sure he is willing to help me out, actually he is helping me out with my turbo build but I want to tune my daily. I want to remove the sap, rear O2 Sensors and some other stuff that I want to try it myself.

Unfortunally no. Up till today we haven´t found the files needed to flash MS430056 by using WinKFP.

Unfortunally, the ews delete is done in the program section of the file.
There is no simple tune-change to be done to switch ews off. We could implement that, but it wouldn´t help you in the first place.

Your DME will automatically detect if you´re using a manual or an auto gearbox

Right, everything you need is included in the files collection in the google drive. We´ve written some instructions how it needs to be done, they are also included.

Most of what you are after are single byte switches called config switches.

Thanks for the answers and hard work Daniel. May try running the 325 off a DME flashed with the MS540056 file you gents have and see how it goes.

Edit just noticed in the MS430056 there is a M43B25 file ... that would work for my situation, and has no EWS?

Yes, it may be from a BMW E39 if i remember correctly, so some bits may be a bit off, mostly fuel tank size related. You could rule that out by comparing your stock tune file vs a E39 stock tune file.

Excellent

Now, i created this thread to help the community grow. For that reason, the only thing i wanna get back is information

If you´re confident the changes you did are working like they should, mention the changes you did At best by before and after screenshots of TunerPro I´d like to try your changes to incorporate Launch-Control

would there be a possibility that the software could support live tuning in the future?

Good news is, we can currently do live tuning. Unfortunally we need some further hardware for this

What is this "decal map" you speak of? Did some research to no avail.
