I am really interested in learning more about how to adjust the transient tables.
If anyone could share some additional experience or insight I would be grateful.
Ideally someone could explain how the VCM is mathematically using the table values to adjust the commanded pulse with.
I tried to get some information from support on how the table data is being used and they felt this was a tuning question and didn't provide an answer. I would think this would have to be known to create HP Tuners.
its all about airmass.

Anyway, so far I haven't run across an area on his website where he shows the transients coming into the equation.
I also found a post by Greg where he provided enough information for me to figure out that my min fuel mg should be adjusted down by the same factor that the injector static flow was increased. So in my case that gives me 0.013 instead of the 0.006 I was using based on the 31.xxx conversion from the min pulse width I had entered (not the same as the min PW the injectors are capable of).
The 0.013 min fuel mg change really helped! My surging has really improved and light throttle acceleration isn't as jumpy as before.
I have to redo the portion of the VE table that a tuner I used did. He was holding steady conditions but he was tuning based on the the STFT (LTFT disabled). This didn't seem to result in good data I think it was because the transients were adding a lot of fuel and the trim was taking it back out.
Once this is fixed, I still need to find or learn the step-by-step process for calibrating the transients.
If you've read this post and have some experience with the actual transient calibration procedure, please share.
Some specific questions I have are regarding adjusting the boiling time table. I didn't know if this table can simply be adjusted globally or should it be row by row like the impact factor?
I'm sorry, I don't understand your question or if it was directed to me??

For the tip-in lean conditions I'm gradually increasing the applicable high MAP portion of the impact factor. For the let-off rich dip I'm gradually decreasing the fuel boiling time in the applicable low MAP portions.
I am really early in the learning curve regarding getting the transients dialed in. Based on comments from an OEM calibration engineer, I understand that transients are the hardest part to get right.
I was asking general "How To" questions in this existing thread however I will include my tune and a scan just in case it can help shine any light on the subject. The attached scan is long and only has a few points where I was testing the transients. You just have to scroll though it an watch the TPS reading.
