But isn't it true that it's not only huge, but that below 6% throttle the sensors aren't even used anyways? Also, what i was asking and what i have heard before is that the sensors don't even adjust for best performance but only for emissions because they test emissions only at idle or very low throttle opening. In other words, triumph programs the sensors to give the best emissions and performance be damned.If the tune is made for completely different locale and you hit, let's say, a cool mountain road the tune is no longer ideal. But the adaptation is not huge, so it will not compensate for major changes anyway.
I didn't bother to take any measurements, assuming that the disabling by software turned everything off.So are you saying that after you disabled the sensors in Tuneecu, you still found the heaters were being activated? And by MIL light do you mean the engine management light ?
Although I've found that it seems to run OK, Power-tripp rightly insists that for best results the mapping should be adapted to run without O2 sensors.Thanks Tom! You are always a reliable source of good information! So the answer is simple: Disconnect the o2 sensor completely, plug the hole and disable the function in the map via TuneECU.
It looks as if you have to do one of two things:Wait.....the ecu still uses the sensors with the checkboxes cleared? Then why did that tuner uncheck them when he made that custom map for the guy i got the tune from? I would think the tuner saw what the sensors were doing on the dyno and so turned them off. In fact thats basically what i was told. More confusion...
