***Tuning Noob Alert***
Just trying to work through the tuning learning curve so I was working through the numbers for my 2010 Camaro LS3 in the PE vs RPM table and it seems that GM has these cars set to command about 11.5-11.7 once enrichment kicks in, the key being once enrichment actually kicks in. Looking at the default PE Delay RPM of 5000 and the Enrichment Rate of 0.0200, does it EVER actually kick in. Seems to me it only kicks in once you get past 5000 and does it ever have enough time between 5000 and 6000 to ever get to the commanded AFR because of the 0.02 rate? I am also seeing there is a MAP Value of 15kPa that must be exceeded which seems easy enough to do, as well as 30% TPS as another threshold.
So I guess the real question is, when does PE actually kick in at partial throttle and at WOT?
I did my first HPTuners scanning earlier this week just to start "observing" things to see how the car behaves from the factory. I noticed during one of my 2nd gear WOT runs there was a good amount of knock and a bunch of timing pulled. I do not have my Wideband operational yet so I cannot speak to my actual AFR just yet. Being the noob I am I just want to figure out why the car is behaving the way it is from the factory before I start getting involved with tuning it myself. So why the knock during the WOT run.
As an aside I am running E10 93 octane, or I should say "up to" E10 based on the sticker at the pump and I also have a Roto-Fab CAI on the car.
