Woah, it is complicated, far less friendly user that AP3 was.

I'm able do datalog but I can't open the .csv files that LiveLink makes.

It is kinda useless since I can datalog, but I can't review the logs. Please help.

Well, I should have gone with you, but I was already in contact with a tuner on the Focus ST board, from my ST days, so I went with him. I understand if you don't want to help anymore hahaha.

.csv files can be opened with Excel, or any decent spreadsheet program.
Right. I was doing that with the COBB Accesport3. The files from the SCT looks like nothing in Excel, and they don't work in datazap.me, like they should. It is weird.

That's what it should look like when opened in excel. .csv is a simple text type format, that gives you a basic spreadsheet. The very top of the columns shows the various parameters, so for instance the top left is time, then you have the air-fuel ratio and so on. Each successive row going down is the next step in time, and thus the next value for each parameter.

Yeah, but I mean, AFR should be something like 14.6:1 or 0.725 volts. And 83 degrees of knock retard, not sure....

There's probably something messed up in the parameter values. Maybe check livelink to make sure it's outputting correctly. I would wager that the AFR values in the second column are supposed to have a decimal after the first 1-2 digits.

The data could also be in the incorrect order, adding to any confusion. Again, I would check the software to make sure it's outputting the correct values and that something isn't set incorrectly.

And this is a good example of why everyone should go with TOM.

Perfect example. I wasted 150$ with Torrie from Unleashed.

People, don't make the same mistake I did. And please go with Tom from Focus-Power on the first try.

Its only the base tune you have but how is it so far ?

Tom
-Throttle feels great.
-Car does seems to have more torque down low (1800-2800 Rpm)
-Fuel cut-off is too low-6900Rpm
-The low rpm bogging is gone.
-I have some personnal things I want you to re-adjust, but, for a base tune on a N/A car, I'm impressed.

Oh and your support is beyond expectation.

That low rpm bogging is what makes me want to get a tune myself.

It is now gone mate. Tom is an awesome guy and he will take care of you.

He took care of me and I was not even his customer yet. After seeing how professional he was, I jumped with him. The other tuner was useless.

I'm on first revision ( base map plus 1 revision) and the car pulls right from 1300rpm!!!!! No bogging. Find a used X3 and for another 150$, @1turbofocus will transform your car, in a good way!!!
