The Map creation wizard is designed to allow a simple step by step production of a Map file. In 10-15 minutes the user should be able to generate a configuration capable of starting and running their car.
This wizard allows you to create an engine configuration. It will query you for a number of details and specifications about your setup and generate a customised configuration.
Select engine info from a pre-determined list or build a custom one. Pre-determined list will contain defaults for that particular engine.
How many cylinders
what is the firing order
bore size & block material for knock setup???
max RPM (for rev limits)
Boosted or NA
BSFC / expected HP
TBI, MPFI, staged injection
Size & Type of injectors. Resistance?
details necessary for fuel_req calculation
Wasted Spark, Coil per cylinder, distributor
Pick from a pre-defined list or allow a "custom" setup where they enter each value manually.
Knock, IAC, fan, boost control etc
one page with settings for each feature selected
Fuel Map Generation
Hopefully use a pre-canned RPM/MAP setup. This requires some intelligence to choose these values correctly.
Different profiles for boost and NA engines. Some broad instructions and necessary warnings.
Ignition Map Generation
Determine number of degrees of advance for idle.
Maximum number of degrees advance
Number of degrees retard per PSI of boost.
Generate broad ignition map with necessary warnings. Hopefully we will have some good pre-canned maps for a variety of engines here.
Save the map as a specific filename.
