The only thing I was talking about was the use of CAN broadcasting from the CAN-EGT. And since you're using the DIYAutotune CAN-EGT, you should have posted on the msextra forum in the expansion boards section.

Having said that, if you are using 1.5.1 and want to continue with that version then there isn't much more to say because the 1.5.1 firmware does not support CAN broadcasting from the CAN-EGT. If you want to use the msq you posted on the msextra forum (latest 1.5.2 RC) let me know.

no problem i can flash both version to the latest MS3_1.5.2_RC12
at the moment the MS3 will only be used for data logging

i made an error in setup
don,t know if this is working now as it is late here
but the CAN-EGT manual from the AMP EFI site say to set to remote CAN id 5
i thought since this is an LC1 passthrough the LC1 had a virtual CAN number of 5
the MS3 1.5.1 manual says to set the CAN id to 1
which i did now
getting a value of 22.4 even though the LC1,s are not connected on the bench
should this not be the default value of 14.7 send out by the CAN-EGT?

There are 2 things wrong with this: first, the CAN Id for the CAN-EGT is 1 and second the offset for v0.1.5 (and v0.1.4) is 18.

Please post something on the msextra forum about this because I seem to be unable to get them to correct things. I will still send them an email regarding this but a post from a customer should help.

That also why using CAN broadcasting and the MS3 1.5.2 is a better option. There are fewer potential user (and manual) errors.

Jean

p.s. I had not noticed that when I checked your msq earlier.

now they are a match thank you!!!!

for some reason getting the people of the megasquirt community,s inner circle to do something requires a Vulcan Mind Melt!
since i live across the pond that is not going to be me :(
i made a modification of the Rover3 wheel so it could run the mercury 60-6 wheel
that was 10 YEARS ago, it,s still not part of the stock code

now for the average megasquirt user like me all the Can stuff is like witchcraft
you have to do the right incantations to get the desired result but in general end up with Satan and his hell hounds making your life an utter misery

i will make a post in tunerstudio as that will probably touch most people,s lifes
maybe they can turn it into a sticky so it stay,s upfront
