Osiris, uprev, abbeymotorsport and woohoo

24 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Well I finally got round to doing my first ECU flash on the datto and the results......

Well the finely calibrated "bumometer" tends to indicate woohoo.

The specially selected stop sign to 100km/h sign test track tends to indicate woohoo.

The breaking traction in second meter tends to indicate woohoo.

So until I get down to Willowbank and confirm the incumbent data the verdict is:

WOOHOO

The ecu flasher is an Uprev Osiris with map from Mark at Abbey Motorsport in pommyland and cost 308 pounds which is about $500AUD +/-

He says he can do all versions of 350 as well as 370 at about the same price.

I am currently datalogging to send back there for fine adjustment but so far so good.

More data after more investigation.

Well more info.

The standard 350Z jerk jerk launches in 1st gear has GONE, it exhibits much much smoother throttle control.

2nd is now push you back in the seat fast, someting I missed from my F6.

Fuel economy sucks but I suspect that is mostly due to right pedal exuberance..... :)

So did you just get the flash from the UK some more detail on this would be great as I contacted Uprev in the USA and they said as our fuels are different here RON blah blah that I would need to purchase the Uprev Tuner and have someone tune the car locally, they couldn't do the email service from USA

So I am curious about your UK guy

Nope. It's a generic ecu reflash...and if you buy their software you can log the data and send it to them for fine tuning.

At $500 is a pretty good deal. The main thing is getting rid of throttle restrictions down low...

Send mark from abbeymotorsports an email. He's pretty helpful...too bad he couldn't find a way to overcome the throttle restriction on the vq25det...

No, no dyno yet. I will do that later and send the data over.

I did the same thing with my F6 and a company in Perth (I am in QLD).

It took several weeks but I was happy with the 280rwkw :)

Our 350Zs and the pommy ones are the same.

So far the tune is slightly hotter but the speed limiter and the torque restrictions in the first 3 gears are gone and that makes a HUGE difference.

I am not all that worried about gaining that last half a kilowatt possible, just making that car go as I believe it should.

so with the torque restricting does this mean the car spins wheels easier?

and smoother through the rev range?

Yes and much smoother

Did my first long run today.

Av speed 104km/h, av fuel 11.4 km/l.

I have always got high 9s low 10s before.

Well the cold weather is good for the new flash.

I am rather impressed over all.

One of the really cool things is that the ECU contains 5 maps any of which are selectable in real time by manipulation of a couple of the buttons on the steering wheel.

Right now I have the new one with factory standard in the other 4 positions.

My plan is to have something like:

1) 95 go a bit better with the torque tags removed

2) 98 woohoo you idiot

3) 95/98 go like a snail but drink very little fuel

4) 30km/h, 3500rpm max (valet mode)

5) factory standard

I will finish the data logging now the rain has finally stopped and send it off to Mark @ AbbeyMotorsport next week for a tweek.

I am further very impressed by the service here, I have spoken to several performance shops in OZ but unless I lashed out with a significant 4 digit and sometimes 5 digit lump of money they did not seem interested.

Hopefully I have managed to only find the spivs and theer are plenty of good guys out there.

P.S. One thing I did find out is that the dattos are already configured for ethanol, even that 85 one that the mexicans raves about.

Drove to sunny coast today (400km return) mixed in with all the idiot holiday traffic.

Av Speed 87km/h fuel 12.6km/l (< 8l/100km)

That is a mix of urban and highway with quite a few "spurts" getting past caravan towing mexicans and V8 super4WD racers.....

There is no hardware, it is a software update to the ECU

The steering controls are simple.

1) Hold down cancel on cruise

2) Toggles set down the number of times of the position of the map e.g. map 3 = 3 clicks

3) woohoo

It does not interfere with the operation of cruise and as standard all 5 maps are factory. The switching is done in real time even while driving.

Mine is currently 1=AMS, 2-5= factory.

This will change as I fine tune it.

Oh ok, nice use of factory controls :D

it sounds tempting... allthough im also considering a move to a g35, but the system works with both cars, as they are the same motor correct?

Might be depending on which G35, go the their website and check would be the best idea.

hey flap is it a issue if you have mods?

seems like a great system, also can you flash it yourself or do you give it to a performance workshop>\?

Yes it is.

All you need to do is let them know and they compensate accordingly.

I did it myself, all it takes is a laptop and the cable they supply.

The software comes with a data logging component that you use to record data and send back to allow them to fine tune it.

I email the file over, they tweak it, send back a new flash image, you load it and then test again.

Basically the same as a tune shop except it takes a lot longer and my "dyno" is flat, black and several kilometres long :)

N.B. if something silly happens remember you still have the standard factory flash loaded and can switch to it instantly.

Any updates on this? Still happy? Been on the dyno yet? how much is it costing for each tweak? etc

Ok, latest data.

I deployed the next upgrade after sending my data back to AMS.

woohoo++

I thoroughly recommend this as the best bang for buck upgrade I have ever done....

    • Engine light coming on too frequently
      By Newby101 · Posted
      Hey guys.  Was hoping anyone would be able to help me out here.  I recently bought a 2009 370z Auto about 6 weeks ago. Since then, I’ve had to get it serviced 8 times due to the check engine light coming on.  I’ve had all the Oxy sensor and MAF’s replaced and the light still comes on. Whatever is causing it is also making the cars acceleration lag a bit.  Its getting beyond a joke now. I picked it up yesterday morning and by the afternoon the light was on.    Has as anyone had a similar issue // have any ideas to check for??   thanks 
    • Solenoids either side under bonnet/hood latches – what are they?
      By IanzZed · Posted
      Hi Ausmo they are pyrotechnic solenoids. if you hit a pedestrian ( or anything hard) , they fire off and lift the bonnet up at the back to help cushion the impact of said pedestrian. there are sensors in the front of the car that sense when something hits the front hard enough.    
    • Programming key fob
      By Button1 · Posted
      For the record I have a 2003 Nissan 350z Australian delivery and I have successfully programmed a new key fob for the car after sorting out two issues. 1. The original remote I had operated at 315Mz frequency which I was let to believe would work on my car.  After having no success I purchased the 433Mz European version of the key fob and this turned out to be the correct one. 2. There are at least 3 different methods to program 350z key fobs depending on the cars country of delivery eg. USA, UK, Japan.  The one that works for Australian cars is described as Method A in the attached instructions.  Unlike the USA & UK cars the hazard lights do not flash during the programming steps.  To programme do this - 1. Close both doors. 2. Both doors must be locked using the small rocker switch near the door handle. 3. Insert the key into the ignition 5 times within 10 secs and remove. 4.  Quickly insert the key again and the doors will unlock. 5. Turn the key to the accessories position (not the on position). 6. Quickly lock both doors again using the small rocker switch near the door handle. 7. Press the unlock button on your key fob and both doors should unlock indicating the key fob is programmed. 8. Repeat steps 6 & 7 for additional key fobs. 9. Remove the key from the ignition and all of your key fob should now be programmed and lock/unlock the car. Note: I did have trouble with the timing of these steps.  I found that unless step 5 & 6 were done quickly the car would not recognise the key fob at step 7. I hope this helps someone.
    • Wiring for Audio in a 2004
      By victord683 · Posted
      Hi folks   I am putting in Pioneer Z5250BT head unit in my 2004. When I was removing  the 10 pin plug from the factory Bose unit it came apart and all the wires went everywhere (Shit!) . I thought it could too complicated to put them back in order.  When I have looked at other sites  to work this out the wiring they refer to doesn't match the colours that are in wiring harness.    I have the following wires   orange, red, Grey, Blue/White (larger wire which I assume is main power), red/blue, white, pink/black, Green. There is also a small Blue/White wire on a single plug. There is a separate line Green/white which is with the antenna and I can assume is for the power antenna. I need to know what these wires are and where they go on the 10 in plug. I have the Aeropro wire harness to plug into the 10 pin plug. I just need to get them in the right order,. Can anyone help?    Thanks
