Data Logging

Can be an extremely useful tool when trying to fine tune a setup. We use it on our race car to watch EGT's per cylinder, engine RPM's , driveshaft speeds, lap times, etc. Has anyone done this on the 7.3? I would like to be able to monitor 4 pressure readings(drive and boost pressure per turbo), RPM's, and EGT's per bank.

Any thoughts?

Re: Data Logging

I data log ICP, IPR, RPM's, and Vehicle speed when I sled pull. Mostly for comparison as things on the truck change.

Think there are easier ways to do than puttin my laptop in the truck, but it works for now.

Re: Data Logging

Common datalog info us would be:

This is extremely useful for tuning the SOI curves as well as monitoring just what's going on in the PCM in relation to fuel delivery, injection pressure, and boost.

I'd tell ya but I'd have to kill ya. It's proprietary software and hardware which should be available late January. Still working out a few things on it.

Re: Data Logging

Cool, I just wondered. I can only look at about half of what was in the log you posted, with the AE I have.

Re: Data Logging

Do you find that the Scangauge has any problems with message conflicts by running two of them? Or do they some some method to avoid that like different Node ID's? Never used it so I'm not familiar with their setup.

Re: Data Logging

Corsa, RPM Pro and PCS even come to mind off the bat, I think an 8 channel logger would be a good start, and larger ones are available if you think you need more. If you want to do PW you'll have to do a little more homework on which ones will support that
