speed density

I'm getting ready to flash my 98 ecu for speed density. Will it still be possible to use the ecu plus for my fine tuning since it uses the mas signal

I don't think so. SD should bypass the MAS signal completely.

That's what I figured. Thanks for the quick reply.

So does this still apply even if i were to have speed density setup in my 98/99 ecu? and just leave it alone (stock) in ecu plus?

I don't know exactly how SD in the stock ECU works, but I assume it bypasses the MAS completely. With this, the MAS-related settings in the ECU+ (including fuel tuning) wouldn't have any effect.

When you have speed density they change the code in the edu to understand the correlation between a map sensor and the temperature sensor. These sensors have all new fuel values.

Changing settings in the ecu+ would modify the signal being seen by the ecu either from the map or temp. The ecu+ would under normal circumstances increase fuel by 1% when set to, would no be altering fuel by an unknown value.

A way around this would be for the ecu+ software to also have tables for speed density. It already has the ability to read a map sensor. If it knew what value on the map/temp combo that increased/decreased fuel by X% then it could alter voltage to the map to tweak fuel. in the same manner as the mas. This would be much like the way the maf is done vs the stock mas.
