Bringing TBI and Multi Port Fuel Injection to a New Level.

Screen shots of the What's Up Display

Here are various screen captures of the What's Up Display in action. Some screen shots were taken in playback mode, while others on a running engine. These same screens are available live directly from the EBL while the engine is running.

The five main displays: Virtual Dash, Trip Computer, VE Learn, Spark Knock, and Diagnostic are all collecting and calculating data at the same time. You can drive around or play back a data log with any of the five main displays showing and the other functions are still active. Switching from display to display shows the latest data. There is also a small floating pop up to display malfunction or diagnostic trouble codes (DTC's). This screen is active along with whatever main display is selected.

For EBL Flash users there is an additional screen and an additional window. The screen is used for Flashing a new calibration into the EBL ECM. While the window is to select which calibration is to be active. The EBL Flash stores 8 calibrations. Which the user can seamlessly choose from with or without the engine running.

This shows that bank 4 is the active bank. The dashed line around bank 5 is from the mouse being over that area (the pointer doesn't show up in a screen grab). A click on that box and bank 5 will be selected as the new calibration. Once the ECM acknowledges the change that box will then be the one highlighted in yellow.

For users of the EBL Flash the above display is used to Program or Read the BIN. There are 8 banks to hold calibrations, think of it as a BIN switcher.

The Program Bank updates the entire calibration area. While the Read Bank is used to read BINs from flash memory. The Messages box displays information about the current flash process.

The VE Learn display. . .

    screen shot

Currently showing is the corrections. The original VE values or the new VE values can also be displayed (click radio button on upper right). The VE Learn function will create a new BIN file ready to be used. The highlighted color block shows the RPM and MAP value at that time. Green is used when learn is active, a yellow block is used when learn is inactive.

The VE learn can be from either the BLM data (closed loop), or from a WB setup (open loop).

Spark Knock data. . .

    screen shot

The Areas of Spark Knock display shows the average, peak and total spark retard from detonation. The counts display shows the number of counts (divided by 64) from the knock filter.

Click on the Boost tab for data while the engine was in boost. If a 3-bar MAP sensor is installed the display will auto scale to 300 KPa maximum.

Trip Computer. . .

    screen shot

The Trip display shows instant and average MPG, RPM, distance traveled and fuel consumed. The 'Lean Cruise' bar at the bottom of the screen signifies that the ECM is in highway lean cruise mode.

If a WB O2 controller is present that information will also be displayed.

And when the KPH preference is selected, the display is in metric units. . .

    screen shot

Diagnostic Display. . .

    Diagnostic Display

Displays the raw sensor values. This helps when troubleshooting.

Analysis display. . .

    screen shot

An entire data log can be quickly scrolled through to evaluate the desired area.  The Dump Log button creates a text file that contains additional data. This file can be viewed via Notepad or Wordpad. It can also be read into a spread sheet program such as Excel.

The line highlighted in green is from a marker placed in the data log. Markers are added by tapping either the space bar (green highlight) or the Tab key (yellow highlight). The 'Find Mark' button searches for these markers and brings the log display to that point.

The '1/4 Mile' button graphs a section of the log. By clicking on the line to start at and pressing the 1/4 Mile button (or double clicking on the starting line), a graph is produced. This is shown in the next screen shot.

Performance Graph and Data. . .

    screen shot

A punch from a stop and a few gears to boot. A movable cursor for readout is shown at the 15 second area. The box in the upper right displays the information at the point of the cursor.

Grab the cursor with the mouse and slide it left & right along the graph.

This graph will auto scale between 13.3 seconds and 20 seconds. If the 1/4 mile run is 13.3 seconds or under the maximum scale is 13.3 seconds. Over 13.3 seconds the scale is set to 20 seconds.

User Defined Devices. . .

    Screen Shot

The WUD allows up to 16 different types of devices to be defined. These devices are to be connected to one of the 8 ADC channels for data logging. This allows the EBL Flash user to connect any 0 - 5 volt linear output device to the system for logging.

Preferences selection. . .

The User Devices and Preferences are saved in the configuration (.cfg)  file and loaded each time the What's Up Display is started.
