What value should WOT be on the logs?

Since ive had my car i havnt been able to tell if i can even give it WOT.

Im in a wheelchair and use hand controls but im limited to how far the lever can move the pedal so im not sure if i can even give it full throttle or not.

I thought maybe with the log data i could tell but im not sure what value is wide open?

If you can get off the intake pipe have someone look in there or hold the lever to its maximum travel and see if the butterfly is open all the way.

That would be the best indicator for me, as I know some dont read throttle position correctly (for example, my scangauge read that it was either 18 or 28 percent open at idle, and 84 or 94 at WOT)

Tom's lying. You don't need to see logs to tell a guy if he's going WOT or not (he's trying to drum up business).

The best way to tell if the ECU is going WOT is to look at the spark source, STFT and absolute throttle position. If the throttle position is a high number, above ~700 IIRC, the spark source is 3, IIRC, and the STFT is stable and less than 1, should be around 0.800ish; then you are for sure WOT ... but that all depends on what the WOT setpoint is in the tune.

In LiveLink, click help and view "source values". That will tell you what 'source' means what.

I am lying ? So you can tell from the pictured logs if he is going WOT and for your info he is already a customer and even if he was not I have not and will never charge any one to look at there logs and help with issues they have even if there running some one elses tune ,

And for your info the stft when in OL would match what ever the base fuel table is set to
