Manual for software and setting up boost

Running windows 10 home addition so this may be an issue for getting the manual for the software through the program. I could not find a copy of the manual online. When I select wiring and installation guide in the software nothing pops up. I thought this is were the manual shows up?

Also I cannot find the boost settings like on wari. On Eugene in the wastegate control page there is three DC1, target 1, DC2 target 2, and DC3 target 3, settings. No idea where this is. Where do I set my target boost map?
thanks,
Ian

I am still on WARI, but all the documents are in the location you installed it, Eugene should be the same. Example below for my PC.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Adaptronic Engine Management\WARI

The PDF/Manual/Wiring etc, for WARI at least are in the "BaseMaps" folder. There was a change and they added "BaseMaps_V14", which I assume is when the links stopped working.
Was checking out an Adaptronic for an RB, and needed to check the manual for RB.

First off, I would make 100 percent sure that you are on the latest version of Eugene.
I have been running Eugene since January on my laptop that runs upgraded Windows 10 and I have pretty much no issue. Assuming you have plugged in to your ecu, it should pop up with the information linked to your ecu (I have a PNP select for a series 6 so that's what I see). I think the manuals are also on the Adaptronic website iirc.

As to answer your boost table question, you are in the right section of the software under the "Tuning-Air">"Wastegate Control"

You can change your base duty cycle under the "Set Base Duty Cycle" table. Everything else below that is for boost by gear and closed loop boost control from what I understand.

By clicking the "Boost Map" drop down menu, you can change between different boost control strategies. Personally, I am using the 2D map for initial boost control starting at zero duty cycle and working my way up until I hit my target.

Make sure your overboost protection and max duty cycle is set so your engine stays safe and you can enjoy all of the BRAPs!

I hope some of this helps with your issue!

Thanks guys.
I have the latest version 1.48. I have connected the ECU to the computer and tried it disconnected as well. Should make no difference in setting up your files or obtaining a manual. I see no manual either way. I don't have WARI installed on this laptop and there is no manual in my adaptronic directory. I am connected to wifi.

So your telling me you adjust duty cycle to obtain boost? What ever happened to telling the computer you want to run said pressure like 15 psi? I have my over boost set to 10psi as a safety factor right now.

Adjusting duty cycle with the 2D map is the way I do it through Eugene. It looks like there are no actual boost target maps for the boost control through Eugene. If there are, then I would like to see where they're at!

There is an adaptronics article that should help setting your duty cycle based on your setup.

Setting Up Open Loop Boost Control | Adaptronic

Using the equation to find duty cycle for your psi target should help you out for finding what your car actually needs. I would use the duty cycle from the equation, back off a few percentages, and then work your way up to desired boost levels.

Is there not a PDF manual for Eugene?

I learned half I know about tuning and how to use the ECU from reading the complete 90+ page Wari manual like 15 times.

The Eugene manual is not finished yet. Adaptronic has been doing YouTube videos in the mean time.

The easiest way to start as mentioned is use the open loop boost control( set wg duty cycle).

I am sorry I never emailed you back Ian, we are trying to finish up 3 cars now that spring had come and the owners want to drive them!

You can call and speak with Shawn on the office line for tech support ( 763 753 9939)

No worries. Times are busy. I can't manage my time. It took me months to wire in the fuel pressure gauge. Lol took me 7 years to strip, send to paint, rebuild motor, and put back together. The car is drivable to deals gap. Worst case we figure out another time once I get back from deals.

thanks for the response to all.
