Re: Big gun Power Box tuning aid

I have a Big Gun and the Controller and I still can not figure out how to use the damn thing... I am pretty sure I understand the how it works and how to adjust it, but what determines where to put the lights... Do you do it by sound? do you do it by the power you feel? I have a stock revolt with no A/F ratio gauge so I am afraid to mess something up....

My Other question is..... I removed my big gun pipe for this next trip and I have modified the original exhaust and removed the baffles from inside and it now has (two) 2 inch outlets..... I am sure it will breath just fine now, but can I still use the Controller for any Exhaust I have on there?

Please Help! LOL I just want to make sure I am getting the max power and speed out of her..

The Walbro ECU that we have on our cars over compensates for altitude and temp. changes. The only way to tell if your car is tuned properly with the Big Gun programmer is to put a wide band air fuel ratio gauge in the system. Yes you can use the programmer with any exhaust system. Yes your car will run great with the modified stock muffler (just as good or better).

Re: Big gun Power Box tuning aid

Yes... you do need a Wide band air fuel meter to get the most from your machine as far as tuning is concerned.
Also the lower flow injectors helps with lean rich adjustment capability.
That is if your machine is on the rich side less controller.
Or you could buy the updated tuner.
As far as the lights go....
Green only is for idle up to full throttle.
It is a base setting the other lights (yellow & Red) adjust to.
Yellow only is how much extra or less is added during acceleration.
Red only is for how much is added or reduced for full throttle.
Green with blue flashing is for how soon the extra fuel starts to be added from the start(idle).
press - it starts sooner, press + it starts later.
Yellow as well as Red with blue flashing is the same as green.
- sooner / + later.

For example. If you have a 12.5 idle & it goes to 10.1 when you accelerate it could be one if not both of two things.
Yellow is coming on too soon(yellow blue setting) in relation to the CPU's original enrichment settings or yellow is too rich (yellow only higher #)when it is added.
But... if it goes rich initially & then leans out before full throttle.
I would make the yellow come on later & richen up the yellow only # setting.

That's my story & I'm stick'n to it.

Re: Big gun Power Box tuning aid

Thanks XRMikey


Great Help !

I guess the first thing I need to do is get a Wide band A/F meter..... Until I get that installed, what would be a Safe place to put all the lights at now?

Going to little Sahara in two weeks and I need it to run strong to keep up with all the turbo guys..LOL

Should I run it lean on all the settings, or should I just put it back to Big Guns recommended setting for the revolt?

Thanks for you Help

Re: Big gun Power Box tuning aid

Not knowing the elevation of where your going or how yours is running there, I would start with Big Gun's Revolt settings.
Then you could adjust from there if needed.
I ran mine at 3200ft. in the desert, not sand, with my UMP intake, Gibson Exhaust, 25 in tires & I felt it ran & pulled great. it just flat out hauled butt.
If your's feels sluggish lean each setting out equally one or two lights & then test run it.
If it lean misses fatten it back up to where it ran smooth & strong.
Based on what I have been reading about how these cars are set up fat from the factory you'll be safe no matter what you do.
I'm sure the guys will be able to help you out to get you car running the best it can given the available set up.

Re: Big gun Power Box tuning aid

If your looking for a controller call Matt at Dobeck Performance. They are the company who built them for biggun. They offer a box that has a better range of adjustment.
