LM-2 Digital AFR Meter Now Shipping!

The LM-2 combines an air/fuel ratio meter, a full-function 32-channel datalogger, and powerful software to deliver a complete tuning workshop for less than the cost of one dyno day. Whether you have a piggy-back fuel controller, race carb, aftermarket ECU, ODB-II tuning software, or a flash/chip programmer, an LM-2 is the tool you need to dial in maximum HP. The meter's digital signal processing technology provides data on exactly how rich or lean an engine is running at any load. The LM-2's self-calibrating circuitry also compensates for changes in temperature, altitude, and sensor condition. Click here

LogWorks 3.0 Now Available

We are pleased to announce that LogWorks 3.0 has officially been released and is now available for download. Thanks to those of you who have been testing for us. Here's a quick summary of the new features (full report next newsletter):

  • New gauges: Horizontal bar, 2D Vector Graph (i.e., accel/sideforce vectors), Multi-bar, and Indicator Lights, with Min/max holds for all gauges.
  • User changeable skins: Gauges can have programmable bezels and backgrounds to simulate the look of the vehicle's dash.
  • Auto channel grouping: Scales in the main trace window of channels with same units and zoom ratio are grouped together as one scale. This also applies to the XY-Plot window. From the scale itself you can zoom and smooth all grouped channels at once.
  • Channel markers: Users can place horizontal min/max bracket lines into the time trace window. This enables quick visualization of whether a measurement is within the selected range. Each channel has its own set.
  • New XY-Plot functions: Zoom and Pan tools are now available for X-Y plot. XY-Plots can also be set to polar coordinates if X and Y have the same units (useful for analysis of acceleration/sideforce data). This establishes a traction ellipsoid to see how the driver does compared to the traction limit and/or how setup changes on the car influence traction limits. XY-Plots can be shown graphically or as searchable text table.
  • User programmable and savable Templates: A user can save his current channel states (zoom, pan, smoothing, hide status, marker settings, position in scale window, and assigned gauges and their position) as "template". Up to 16 different templates can be stored and at any time recalled per log window. Click here to download

"OT-1 Plus" Kit (OT-1 + LC-1)

The OT-1 Plus kit includes an OT-1 OpenTune OBD-II/CAN Interface, plus an LC-1 wideband controller with O2 sensor. Used in conjunction with LogWorks, running on a laptop or PC, this setup allows you to record and analyze 17 channels of data.

How to read multiple AFR channels on one XD-16 gauge.

"In working on our LM-2 I found myself frequently running with 4-8 AFR channels in my vehicle (multiple LM-2s and LC-1s). But I only had one XD-16, so I ended up creating slightly different firmware for it. In talking to users, it has occurred to us that others might find it useful"....Joe Click here
*You can select any of the channels for display, or you can choose to display the leanest, richest, or average of all the AFR channels.

Sponsor news - Kurt Johnson wins again!

August 7-10, Brainerd, MN. After a disappointing round-one loss in Sonoma, Johnson made a quick rebound with his 39th Pro Stock title. Following a solid qualifying performance that yielded the No. 2 starting spot, K.J. powered past Jim Yates, Mike Edwards, and defending event winner Jeg Coughlin to reach the final, where he defeated Dave Connolly. Johnson's ACDelco Cobalt was exceptionally consistent with four runs between 6.648 and 6.671 on race day.
