Logging For APR Tuned Cars

VAG-COM DIAGNOSTIC LOGGING FOR APR TUNED CARS

A. Vehicle Setup

■Air-conditioning OFF

■Traction control OFF

■Windows UP

■Note: If the car was using another octane of fuel (other than the octane to be tested) right before the testing is set to begin…Run the car until very near empty (5 miles or less until empty on trip computer to rid the fuel system of the previous octane of fuel. Then fill the car with 91 octane and drive the car for about 15 miles to rid the car of the last remnants of the previous octane. Only after this can testing begin.

B. RUN TYPE / DRIVING TECHNIQUE

Runs need to be at Wide-Open Throttle, 4th Gear, from 1500 rpm rolling start to redline (fuel shutoff).

Note: if too much speed in 4th gear is an issue, 3rd gear can be used but all runs need to be in the same gear at Wide-Open Throttle for the entire run between 1500 rpm and fuel shutoff.

C. NUMBER OF RUNS NEEDED

Minimum of 4 runs for the Vag-Com items I outlined below…one for each logging “round” as shown below in section “VAG-COM BLOCKS TO LOG”.

Note: all runs should be done on the same stretch of road; the engine should be up to full operating temperature before logging; the cool down time needed between runs will be handled when the customer turns around to reposition himself for next run on the original stretch of road used for the first run.

D. VAG-COM / COMPUTER SETUP:

■The data should be logged using Advanced Measuring Blocks in the Engine Controller

■The “Turbo” mode should be activated to ensure a decent data sampling rate

■The data returned to APR should be in raw numerical form (not graphs). Vag-Com will export the data in a .csv format. This is what we need. Please have them title each file like “2006_B7_K04_91_oct_4thgear-wot_run1”, “2006_B7_K04_91_oct_4thgear-wot_run2” and so forth.
