Info needed on wolf3d

Hey guys

Im about to buy this ecu and i need to know about the boost control with this unit. I know i cant just type in what boost i want to run on the ecu with the standard R33 gtst soleniod.

So if i get my hands on a avcr soleniod and use that in conjuction with the wolf3d software, that will give me complete boost control the same as any other EBC?

I dont want to spend a few hundred on a EBC if i dont have to if this method works. So just want to confirm if anyone has done this and it works ok?

Also i want to know if anyone has any base maps they could send me? I wanna have a go at installing it myself and if i could have a base tune to get me started that would be much appreciated.

My mods are

3" turbo back exhaust

Pod

FMIC

bosch 040

stock boost

Cheers

Matt

MJ I am in the small boat as you

I have the wolf computer but still have not fitted it yet

I pm Steve at SST a while ago the same question

his answer

"You can use the factory solinoid, but solder up the restrictor and redrill it to 0.5mm"

To us the factory solinoid I am pretty sure you need to unplug it from the factory harness and run new wires from the wolf computer?

Plug in the wolf and the boost solinoid will work with no extra wiring needed but if you want high boost you need to solder the factory restrictor and re drill smaller or fit a larger solinoid. Wolf car run any solinoid and works with inturnal and exturnal gates if you set it up right.AVCR solinoid is fine but save your coin and use the factory one with small restrictor.

yes i agree, the power FC is fairly restrictive with an automatic, especially because there is not many functions available for that type of tuning..

why dont you learn how to drive manual?... :jk:

the wolf has a wider range for the auto.. so good choice!

good luck with the tuning! :wassup:

Hi Abu, the standard engine ECU "talks" to the gearbox ECU and

(amongst other things) retards the ignition timing to smooth out the gearchanges. This also "unloads" the gearbox at the time of shifting, which lessens the torque shock on the auto. This extends its life considerably. The programming for this is quite complex as it has to account for gradients, as well as throttle position, gearchange point, engine rpm road speed etc. I suspect tha tthis is why Apexi don't make an auto PFC, they would have to charge a bomb to cover the cost of the programming t ocover the wide variety of power outputs. Noting that a standard ECU only has to account for standard power.

I have a Stagea almost here and it's an auto, good for towing the race car. So can you (or anyone else) tell me how well the Wolf handles the gearchanges in the auto?

I have recieved the maps, thanks for your help all :)

Sydneykid from what i have read from other people that have used this ecu in their auto skylines, they havent had a problem with the ecu except for the gearchange to be a little jerky. Maybe Steve can give a bit more of a insight on this?

I really like the software that comes with the unit, its really easy to understand and navigate. I cant wait to get this baby fired up now

Cheers
