EFI Live Questions

I dont know too much about GM diesels and tuners for them, but i do know of EFI Live. My friend was asking about tuners and stuff and we were wondering is EFI adjust on the fly from a laptop. Like for instance you are cruising down the highway monitoring stuff on the computer and you want to change some thing, can it be done from a laptop at highway speed?

Diesel is in my blood, I guess you can call it a disease, sadly there is no cure for it, it's my cross I must carry

EFI came out with "DSP2" (a two position on-the-fly switch) a few months ago. More recently they improved that to a "DSP5" position switch. Also they developed the "TNT" which is a dial to adjust fuel pulse width in real time. However, the on-the-fly switchable programs must be pre-calibrated and flashed into the vehicle computer before starting up. I don't think you can make tweaks to the actual file calibrations beyond DSP & TNT without reflashing the vehicle computer (i.e. shutting down).

With efi live by itself you cannot do on the fly tuning but with some stuff from here http://www.moates.net/ you can change parameters on the fly.

This is what you need for realtime tuning but it is only for the LB7. http://www.moates.net/product_info.p...roducts_id=105

Thanks, does that just stack w/ EFIlive or does it just work with it?

You replace your factory pcm/ecm with that one and then you are ready to tune on the fly with EFI Live.
