Subaru Custom Monitor Descriptions For Accesstuner And V3 Accessport




Introduction

This document provides the unique Accesstuner and Accessport names of our custom data monitors, followed by their descriptions. These monitors are available to view and log in current Accesstuner software and V3 Accessport firmware for applicable Subaru vehicles. Please keep in mind the following:

  • Custom monitors are not available if the ECU is flashed with a "MAF-only" calibration.

  • Some of these monitors are not available with some vehicles due to differences in vehicle hardware or where feature implementation has been limited to specific vehicle types.

  • Some monitors are only available in the latest versions of the COBB Custom Features (CCF) ECU types and not earlier CCF or SD versions.

  • Some monitors require specific vehicle hardware (sold separately) and appropriate calibration changes in the map in order to be functional:
    • Flex fuel hardware for ethanol related monitors.
    • Fuel pressure sensor hardware for fuel pressure related monitors.
    • MAP sensor with appropriate extended range for extended boost related monitors.
    • Additional compatible sensor hardware for "sensor input" monitors.

Ethanol Transition Fuel Mass Injected Sum (Eth Trans Fuel Inj Sum) [DIT CCF]
The sum of the Ethanol Transition Fuel Mass Injected Current (Eth Trans Fuel Inj) values. This will only increment when ECDS has activated, before it exits (while Ethanol Final is locked).

In SD mode, this value will be the same as the Mass Airflow Corrected SD monitor. In MAF mode, this value will be the same as the Mass Airflow Corrected OEM monitor or the Mass Airflow Corrected SIMPLE monitor (if MAF simple feature is active). When transitioning between SD and MAF (or vice versa) in hybrid mode or MAF OEM and MAF simple, this value will show the blended value during that transition.

Mass Airflow Corrected OEM (MAF Corr OEM) [DIT CCF GEN2]

SD Mode AIRFLOW (SD Mode Airflow) [DIT CCF GEN2 AND EJ 2.5L CCF/SD]
This monitor shows which SD mode is being used to determine the final airflow. This will tell you if SD-based or MAF sensor-based airflow is being used or a blend of both during a hybrid transition. In the Accesstuner software, this monitor will display/log one of the following strings (Accessport value show in brackets):

MAF [0] – Mode is MAF and MAF sensor-based airflow is being used.

SD [1] – Mode is SD and SD-based airflow is being used.

MAF-H [2] – Mode is hybrid and MAF sensor-based airflow is being used.

SD-H [3] – Mode is hybrid and SD-based airflow is being used.

BLEND [4] – Mode is hybrid and transition is taking place where SD-based airflow and MAF sensor-based airflow are blended.

MAF-E OR ERR [5 or greater] – An error has occurred and the mode has defaulted to MAF. Contact COBB customer service if this appears.

SD Mode LOAD (SD Mode Load) [EJ 2.0L CCF]
This monitor shows which SD mode is being used to determine the final load. This will tell you if SD-based or MAF sensor-based load is being used or a blend of both during a hybrid transition. See SD Mode AIRFLOW description for details.

SD VE Adder Map Ratio (SD VE Adder Ratio) [DIT CCF GEN2]
SD VE Adder map ratio multiplier that determines the switching (and blending) between no adder applied to VE (ratio = 0) and full adder applied to VE (ratio = 1). The final SD VE value is calculated as follows: (SD Volumetric Efficiency (Adder) (Stratified Fuel Mode) table * map ratio + final VE table).

SD VE COMMANDED (SD VE Comm) [DIT CCF GEN2 AND EJ 2.0L/2.5L CCF/SD]
This is the commanded volumetric efficiency (%) as determined by the SD Volumetric Efficiency table (EJ 2.0L/2.5L) or the final volumetric efficiency for DIT (determined based on the switching of the three SD Volumetric Efficiency... tables and SD VE (Adder)). This value is always calculated regardless of the current mode.

SD VE B to A Map Ratio (SD VE B to A Ratio) [DIT CCF GEN2]
Map ratio multiplier that determines the switching (and blending) between the SD Volumetric Efficiency A table (ratio = 0) and the SD Volumetric Efficiency B table (ratio = 1). The final A/B table value is calculated as follows: (A table * (1.0 - map ratio)) + (B table * map ratio).

SD VE C to A B Map Ratio (SD VE C to A B Ratio) [DIT CCF GEN2]
Map ratio multiplier that determines the switching (and blending) between the SD Volumetric Efficiency final A/B table (ratio = 0) and the SD Volumetric Efficiency C (Post-Start AVCS Disabled) table (ratio = 1). The final SD VE value is calculated as follows: (A/B table * (1.0 - map ratio)) + (C table * map ratio).

SD VE Estimated MAF (SD VE Est MAF) [DIT CCF GEN2 AND EJ 2.0L/2.5L CCF/SD]
If the vehicle is still equipped with a MAF sensor that is installed and calibrated correctly, this monitor allows for an estimate of volumetric efficiency based on MAF, MAP, RPM, IAT and the map's (reflashed) engine displacement value. Keep in mind that specific conditions can skew some of the inputs, resulting in a VE estimate that is not reliable. This value is always calculated regardless of mode.

SD to MAF Hybrid Ratio (SD to MAF Hybrid Ratio) [DIT CCF GEN2 AND EJ 2.0L/2.5L CCF/SD]
Map ratio multiplier which determines the switching (and blending) between the MAF sensor-based airflow (ratio = 0) and the SD-based airflow (ratio = 1). This value is only calculated in hybrid mode. The final airflow blend is determined as follows: (MAF * (1.0 - map ratio)) + (SD Airflow * map ratio).

SD Hybrid Thresh Flag (SD Hybrid Thresh Flag) [DIT CCF GEN2 AND EJ 2.0L/2.5L CCF/SD]
This monitor will indicate which of the hybrid thresholds (RPM, MAP, TPS, MAFv) have been exceeded and which have not. This is useful to verify the hybrid thresholds you've tuned are achieving the desired effect. This value is only calculated in hybrid mode. For the Accesstuner software, this monitor will be shown as a series of letters indicating which thresholds have been exceeded as follows:

MAF voltage = "V"

TPS = "T"

MAP = "P"

RPM = "R"

For example, if TPS, RPM, and MAP are exceeded, but MAFv is not, then "TPR" will be displayed. If none of the thresholds are exceeded, then the monitor will be blank.

For the Accessport, this monitor is displayed as a bit-encoded byte. To determine the thresholds exceeded, you'll want to first convert the decimal value shown to a binary number. The status of each threshold is given as follows:

(0 = not exceeded, 1 = exceeded)

(EJ 2.0L/2.5L only):

Bit 0 = Mass Airflow Voltage

Bit 1 = Throttle

Bit 2 = Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP)

Bit 3 = RPM

(Bit 0 is the last digit in the binary representation of the number, bit 1 is the second to last digit, and so on)

For example, a logged value of 9 (binary = 1001), would indicate MAF voltage and RPM thresholds have been exceeded. A value of 0 means none of the thresholds have been exceeded.

(DIT Gen2 only):

Bit 0 = RPM

Bit 1 = Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP)

Bit 2 = Throttle

Bit 3 = Mass Airflow Voltage

(Bit 0 is the last digit in the binary representation of the number, bit 1 is the second to last digit, and so on)

For example, a logged value of 9 (binary = 1001), would indicate RPM and MAF voltage thresholds have been exceeded. A value of 0 means none of the thresholds have been exceeded.

SD MAF Pre Final Airflow (SD MAF Airflow) [EJ 2.0L/2.5L CCF/SD]
This is the final airflow to be used by the ECU (before any factory compensations/limits are applied). This could be MAF sensor-based airflow, SD-based airflow, or a blend of both (when ramping in hybrid mode). In SD mode, this value will be the same as the SD Airflow POST COMP monitor (or derived from SD Load POST COMP and RPM for EJ 2.0L). In MAF mode, this value will be the same as the Mass Airflow TABLE monitor. When transitioning between SD and MAF (or vice versa) in hybrid mode, this value will show the blended value during that transition.

SD MAF Pre Final Load (SD Pre Load) [EJ 2.0L CCF]
This is the final load to be used by the ECU (before any factory compensations/limits are applied). This could be MAF sensor-based load, SD-based load, or a blend of both (when ramping in hybrid mode). In SD mode, this value will be the same as the SD Load POST COMP monitor. In MAF mode, this value will be the same as the Calculated Load MAF SENSOR BASED
 monitor. When transitioning between SD and MAF (or vice versa) in hybrid mode, this value will show the blended value during that transition.

SD MAF Load Smoothing Factor (SD MAF LoadSm) [EJ 2.0L/2.5L CCF/SD]
