Car: 2000 C5 with longtubes and a modified intake.
I was hoping someone could clear this up for me. In the "Max Torque: RPM vs Gear" table in my tune, the entire field is set to 1280 lbs. This is untouched since the car was stock. If you attempt to input any number in the field higher than 640, it will default back to 640 ft lbs.
Why is this field set so high when HPTuners states that its range is 0 to 640?
Also, I was wondering what the "Max Torque" field controls, and how the VCM is providing this information. Is it referencing predetermined torque numbers somewhere based on RPM increase vs time vs gear? And how does it control tq if the max value is determined to be met? ETC? Fuel? My car is making right around 350wtq with just bolt ons. Theoretically, if this number is calculated "at the flywheel" my car should be exceeding the 350 ft lbs maximum value, so I do not understand what the number is doing.
Could this value be holding me back? Would setting this to the 640 maximum be of value to me?
I have been searching here and ls1tech and have not come up with answers to these questions. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
