It was a bitch, but I enjoied every bit of it, learned tons and had a blast doing so. It does not run perfect, and there is alot left to make this ko3 tune perfect, Im hoping to be gtx-3071 within a week. I had planed on original having a BT on the car 2-3 weeks ago and that's why I stoped making big changes to the ko3 file.
To Anyone that wants to tune their Ko3 with Maestro. First off, im willing to help anyone, give screen shots of my maps ect. But know this, I tuned my ko3 with a big ass fmic. I don't see 21-22 psi until 3k or slightly after that and then it's 22 psi till 4k then it tapers down to 15 psi by 4700 an. 13 by 5200.
Because of how the turbo spools, and spike/tappers off so dramaticly and only over 2k rpms it makes tuning and the driving characteristics of the car a bit rough. Part throttle around 3k took a little while to smooth out, but the fmic made this easier to tune tbh. It's going to be harder to tune on a stock smic because you wi spike sooner, so you will need to really smooth out the boost pid table to account for that.
Also, there are different ways to tune, or different methods. I know that I tweaked the boost pid table alot at first, while both Chris and Chris did not.
All in all it is definitly possible to tune a ko3 with maestro. My biggest fear though is that we will start to see people attempt to tune ko3's with Maestro, when that person has no business doing so. I spent months learning about the basics of hardware first where I had a very solid understanding of how different components of the car function. If you don't understand what an n75 valve works, or what sensors the car uses to calculate desiered a/f, and the list goes on. You need a great understanding of the hardware first IMO, then you need to learn how the software will control that hardware. It's very easy to screw something up, I rememer when I first started tuning, I was adjusting my injector constant, first thing i messed with. I stead of giving the car a 3% injector constant I gave it 30%, obviously when I went to go start the car she did not fire up, wicked wicked rich.
Keep in mind if you asked me what an cam chain tensioner, map sensor, or 02 sensor was 12 months ago I would have been confused.
Now I'm pulling cams, and tuning my car......you can lean this stuff, it's just a matter of how much time/dedication you give it.
