Help with building your Speeduino, installing it, getting it to run etc.

Just dropping this topic here to help anyone else that stumbles into this...

I just spent a couple days chasing a hunting idle, checking the usual suspects:
1.) Vacuum Leak
2.) Lean fuelling
3.) Dodgy IAC

Then, after looking at a log that I took, I saw that the DFCO (deceleration fuel cut off... in the accel enrichment page) was coming on, cutting fuel,--> causing rpm to drop... then when rpm dropped enough, it would switch fuel back on, causing rpm to rise, etc... and this presented itself as a hunting idle.

This wouldn't usually have been a problem, but my intake is a bit leaky, causing a higher rpm than usual... so I was getting into the area where DFCO was active...

:D Yeah, exactly... first tuning experience, so very silly mistakes. Just like you I’m very strong with electronics and control... have a mechanical engineering degree, worked in industrial automation, Mechatronics and robotics for 15+ years and I still make silly mistakes like this ;)

But again, thanks for all your posts, videos and work... big inspiration and a big help!

Ahhh I remember this problem well. Took me way too long to realize what it was lmao. Gotta make sure you set the dfco point somewhere comfortable, but also safely above your highest idle point.
