Recommended Posts

i have the PLMS device.. it is worth what you get.. and when they have stock is takes only a few days to get here.

considering there are not many placesthat make them PLMS seems to be the best.

the pga forums (pulsar.org.au) had some guys in WA selling them. ive made a few for the interested on silviansw forums. you can find most of the stuff you need from jaycar and make it yourself if your good with electronics, have a lot of spare time and can track down a consult connector (or hard wire it)

as for the software in the original post, ill check it out soon, more free alternatives the better!

okay got a converter and tried it out last night, i felt so Fast&Furious driving around with the laptop in my car :) but some comments (please note this is the only software i've used so far):

* The user interface is rubbish and confusing.

* The ROM dump most certainly doesn't take 11 mins, after 11 mins i wasn't even 10% complete.

* The auto ECU detect worked fine for my RB20DET.

* The logging does its job, i was supprised at how often it sampled but many consecutive readings were the same at ALL variables so i kinda question if it was an update or a copy of teh previous.

* The application doesn't exit properly, after you close it it leaves a process called "Consult" running which muck you up if you open TECU again.

On the whole i think it's a promising product and above all it's free but it has a way to go yet, simple things like using check-boxes when it should be radio buttons, the UI REALLY let it down and is so important.

i also have some settings.dat error message on startup.

always happens until you run it and save-settings.

also you need to download the 1.7Mb zip at the top of the thread THEN replace the default exe with f revision exe (~400kb). I got the f by itslef and it confused teh crap outta me.

I have a tutorial online to make the consult interface (with genuine consult connector) - based on the PLMS design.

Also have another one on how to make the connector from ATX plug (The tutorial on tangentrix is a little confusing in some parts)

DIY Connector : HERE

Consult Interface : HERE

I have the genuine (and rare) consult port connectors for sale as well if you're not confident enough that the DIY connector will do the job

    • I do have a tiny tiny misfire occasionally but I think it's because I got a little fuel down into a plug tube so I'll pull the coils out and see if I can dry those out. 
    • Ok, so here the embarrassing 'fess up' post. Here's the crack, or broken part of the old valve cover. Pretty obvious break and in hindsight it's quite the face palmer 🤦‍♂️ but let me explain why I didn't think this was a problem. This side part of the valve cover is an additional piece, it protrudes from the main valve cover and it's also where the fuel rail mounts.....  You can see the rail at the bottom and you can see this external piece hanging off the side of the cover. It almost looks sandwiched in this pic.  Here's another cover with that side piece ...  On top of this, when looking at the inside of the cover, there were no openings(*) for that section. So I really just thought I'd broken some crispy plastic mount for the fuel rail.... Until somebody drew my attention to the air openings at the BOTTOM of the cover, not INSIDE the cover. So, I had a ginormous PCV leak. The cover needed to go and I should have taken everybodies advice and got a new one in the first place. The original one is just fried, its really brittle. It was nice to have the new one be really snug in position and the screws were slightly tight to do up which was completely different to the original ones that almost undid themselves.    
    • Pulled out this pile of shit, will be refreshed soon enough. Had coolant hit my face and I accidentally tasted it.  It's sweet.
    • Looks awesome. Well done. I'd love to drive Laguna Seca! 
    • This video is great, the enthusiasm is infectious and it's kind of cute. It's great to see these things being used properly on track, it reminds me of track days of old. It is a bit funny seeing everyone so excited about Skylines, whereas here they're all considered a bit nuggety or shitboxy. If this seems odd to you mr OP, imagine all of us being this giddy about seeing 30 C5 Vettes on a track at once place, full of influencers taking their videos and posting for clout. That said, you did a great job conveying the fun and excitement of a track day, getting out there and just having some damn fun.
