Default 2018 Stinger GT2 Log Check - 06-03-2021, 07:10 AM

Hi all - I just installed my JB4 last week and am trying to learn how to properly log and read logs. I know my way around data analysis and Excel pretty well, but am new to tuning so still learning what to look for. 2018 Stinger GT2 AWD. HKS plugs gapped to .022 (installed last week with the JB4). Running fuel wires. Also running intakes + snorkels and OCC but no other mods yet.

I did two pulls at Map 2 and one at Map 1 (did my best to run through 3rd gear given the road I had to work with). Running Shell 93 Octane. There were some extra rows I removed to reduce noise but kept the original as well if needed.

I'd love it if someone could let me know if Map 2 is looking safe or what else I should be looking for. I don't know if some of the timing on other cylinders (mainly 4) is concerning at all? I've read up on a lot of Terry's general logging threads, but there's a lot of info out there that I'm trying to ensure I really understand before running anything dangerous.

I can try and get some new/better logs later tonight. Will try and get a Map 0 log as well if that helps.

I'm not sure how else to do that other than what I have here. There are 3 WOT pulls from around 40ish to well over 80 in the file I shared. I'm not sure if I'm missing something here?

Should be in my original post, at least that's what it's showing for me. I'll repost here and hopefully it works. I have the original which had some non-run noise at the beginning and then a trimmed version where I deleted those rows and just left the 3 WOT runs (2 map 2, 1 map 1)

I live in a major city so don't get chances to do runs near home, but plan on being out of town tonight where I can do some. If there's something else I should be doing (like maybe starting a bit lower on RPM) let me know and I'll try and get some more tonight

Start around 40 mph and put the pedal through the floor board till about 80+ mph. Your runs are short but look fine some timing corrections. A couple gallons of E85 would probably clear up most of it.

Thanks. I think I need to start slower because I start about 40 which is higher RPM than desired. Will try tonight if I can get access to any good road.

Any worrying timing corrections? I do not intend to use any E85 at any point. This is for daily driving and I'm not looking to go out of my way to find and try and balance E85 so looking for the best map to run 93.

Got some new logs tonight. Tried to run it from as low in 3rd as it would go from (without auto downshifting to 2 which it did a few times) to about red line. Got three runs at Map 2, and one each at Map 1 and Map 0. I trimmed out a bunch of noise hence the gaps in the timestamps.

All running 93 octane. The last map 2 run was after filling up with Marathon (prior fuel was Shell).

Looks fine to me some timing corrections but nothing crazy for the fuel being used.

Thanks. And absolutely no offense meant by this at all, but just curious your credentials? I was just looking around and noticed it was pretty much just a month ago you were asking Terry to check your logs. Don't get me wrong, I really appreciate your help and responding here. But in terms of ensuring my $40k investment is safe, I was kind of hoping someone from BMS (Terry or maybe Steve) would weigh in as well.

Again, absolutely no offense meant here. But technically you are a stranger on the internet and I've been warned not to always listen to strangers on the internet

No problem I completely understand and yes I'm new to all this. I have just been reading a ton of logs and asking a ton of questions its really fun to learn. I understand completely I reach out to them also.

Right on. Much appreciated. I'm trying to do the same thing now and working on building some Excel tools to help quickly analyze some of the key things in logs. But still not 100% sure what to look for. For example, timing might look OK, but then some other variable might be wacky that I don't know about.

Any suggestions for getting Terry or Steve to take a look and weigh in on my logs?

When others are reviewing logs and doing a good job (like Jaybone is) we let them be. If we see something that we think needs clarifying we'll jump in but I don't like to minimize the help others are offering. Jaybone is correct in his assessments.

Awesome! Thanks so much for the peace of mind!

Jaybone - thanks so much for all your time and responses here.

Super happy to be part of the JB4 family now and even happier that all seems to be running well on my Stinger
