MITSUBISHI EVO X TUNING

MITSUBISHI TUNING AND REMOTE E-TUNING VIA COBB ACCESSPORT OR TEPHRA MOD

KW Dealer offers remote tuning(e-tuning * Wideband required) no matter where in the world you reside. We have been tuning for over 10 years across numerous makes and models.

What you need to do to get started with your KWD Tune:

First and foremost you need a COBB Access Port V3 and can be purchased here if you do not have one already. Or a Tactrix Open Port 2.0 cable. You will also require ECUEDIT and EVOSCAN for logging.

Read ALL the information contained below VERY IMPORTANT.

Use a battery charger while flashing first time its recommended to flash the vehicle when you are in close proximity to your residence

What’s happens after you submit the form below?

Once we have determined and agreed on the modifications you have installed on your vehicle we will supply you with a base map to start the logging and tuning process.  Once we have determined and agreed with the modifications you have performed we can then send you a base map to begin tuning. When you have installed the map into the vehicle ECU we will need to go through the logging process. When a log has been completed please send us the log, we will review it and send a revised map for you to log again. This process can take a couple of revisions to get the map dialled in to your modifications. Should you at any time change or add hardware we MUST be informed of the change as this can have a significant impact on the tuning process and can incur extra charges

CONSIDERATIONS:

EVO 7-9 and EVO X

The EVOs are port injected. The o2 sensor still comprises of a narrowband sensor capable of reading a maximum of 11.14 AFR. This is not ideal for monitoring of the EVO Air Fuel Ratios for regions with lower octane fuels or even 93OCT or 98RON fuels. With remore tuning KW Dealer insists that customers purchase an aftermarket wideband(AEM or Innovate motorsport) to assist in making sure the AFRs are on target.

 


 

GUIDELINES AND INFORMATION

GENERAL GUIDELINES

  • Always use a battery charger when flashing your vehicle.
  • Make sure you are running the latest firmware on your COBB Accessport
  • Make sure climate control is off
  • Ensure your COBB Accessport is on the latest firmware

 

To Install Accessport Manager:

Install Accessport Manager for Windows

DATALOGGING OVERVIEW

COBB Accessport Data Logging Instructions

WHAT IT DOES

This feature allows logging of data monitor values to a file for later evaluation.

HOW TO USE IT

FIRST TIME YOU USE DATALOGGING/MONITORS

The first time a V3 Accessport enters the Datalogging/Monitors menu, the user will be asked how many monitors they would like to display.

Each time the user returns to the “Gauges” menu, the selected layout/number of gauges will be used until it is changed in the “Gauges Setup menu”.

TO CONFIGURE

All Accessports will include a set of default monitors for data logging. If the user wishes to alter the default list, follow these steps:

  • Enter the “Gauges” menu.

  • Enter the datalogging/gauges setup menu by selecting the arrow at the top of the gauges screen, then enter the “Configure Datalogging” menu.

  • Once in the “Configure Datalogging” menu select the monitors you would like to log.

  • Once you have selected the monitors you wish to log, press the cancel button to save.

TO USE

  • Enter the Gauges menu

  • Press the OK button to start datalogging. Once started, a scrolling dot will appear on the screen along with the logging rate displayed at the bottom.

  • Press the OK button or Cancel button to stop datalogging.
  • Connect the Accessport to the Accessport Manager on your computer and download the catalog files in the “Manage” tab. Up to ten (10) datalogs can be stored on the Accessport at any time. The lowest number is the oldest log and the highest number is the newest.

  • Open the datalog in any spreadsheet application. For most applications, double-clicking on the datalog will open the file properly.

We require the following  parameters for logging Mitsubishi vehicles with the COBB Accessport V3

EVO X Logging:

Note the the below parameters are available. We will go through some stages of logging and they will change based on the phase of tuning.

LOGGING & DRIVING HOWTO

1 First log we will need.

First and foremost ALWAYS makes sure the car reaches operating temperature before logging unless logging cold start.

Once the car is fully warmed up cruise around at steady state for about 10-15 minutes. Steady state can be though of as NO rapid accelerator movement and only slow and controlled throttle requests.

Log partial throttle, and about 5 psi of boost.

2 From here on email us the logs to the specified email address. The second log we will need (usually after sending a revised map) under similar conditions to the base map.

3 Stop there and send logs, if things are good we will require a third log (usually after the previous maps and logs are satisfactory)

4 Log, partial throttle, into about 10 psi boost send us the logs

5 Log, full throttle pulls from 2k-Redline send us the logs

Requirements

Your car MUST be in good health / and mechanical condition with NO issues. We cannot tune your vehicle and will decline the tuning request, we can not tune round hardware issues.

Please revert in a timely fashion as per our terms and conditions It is recommended getting back to us with logs within a timely fashion as we get 100's of emails and logs every day. Also please ensure you reply to the email we sent you with the relevant logs, it makes keeping track of logs much easier that way. We ask that you do not seek technical advice from DIY owners, forums, facebook groups or similar. Please ask us first we are the only people who actually knows what is going on in your tune.


 

 

FLEX FUEL

KW Dealer provides Flex Fuel Tuning through the Tephra V3 Mod. The process to tune the car is pretty straight forward. First we tune the car on for example 98RON then we tune the car on E85. The calibration of the MAP will allow the car to scale between the two tuned maps

Requirements:

  1. Injectors: ID1300 is recomended
  2. Fuel Pump: AEM 50-1220 Drop In Fuel Pump or Deatschwerks DW300
  3. Flex Fuel Kit: Flex Convertor or Zeitronics ECA-2
