Here are various screen captures of the What's Up Display in action.
Some screen shots were taken in playback mode, while others on a
running engine. These same screens are available live
directly from the EBL while the engine is running.
The five main displays: Virtual Dash, Trip Computer, VE Learn, Spark
Knock, and Diagnostic are all collecting and calculating data at the
You can drive around or play back a data log with any of the five main
displays showing and the other functions are still active. Switching
from display to display shows the latest data. There is also a
small floating pop up to display malfunction or diagnostic trouble
codes (DTC's). This screen is active along with whatever
main display is selected.
For EBL Flash users there is an additional screen and an additional
window. The screen is used for Flashing a new calibration into the EBL
ECM. While the window is to select which calibration is to be active.
The EBL Flash stores 8 calibrations. Which the user can
choose from with or without the engine running.
The EBL What's Up Display. . .
The Virtual Dash. . .
The Malfunction Code floating display. . .
Shows any malfunction
codes that are stored in the ECM.
The Flash Bank selection floating display (for EBL Flash users). . .
This shows that bank 4 is
the active bank. The dashed line around
bank 5 is from
the mouse being over that area (the pointer doesn't show up in a screen
grab). A click
on that box and bank 5 will be selected as the new calibration. Once
the ECM acknowledges the change that box will then be the one
highlighted in yellow.
The EBL Flash display (for EBL Flash users). . .
For users of the EBL Flash
display is used to Program or Read the BIN. There are
banks to hold calibrations, think of it as a BIN switcher.
The Program Bank updates
the entire calibration area. While the Read Bank is used to
from flash memory. The Messages box displays information about the
current flash process.
The VE Learn display. . .
Currently showing is the corrections. The original VE values
or the new VE values can also be displayed (click radio button on upper
right). The VE Learn function will
create a new BIN file ready to be used. The highlighted color block
shows the RPM and MAP value at that time. Green is used when learn is
active, a yellow block is used when learn is inactive.
The VE learn can be from either the BLM data (closed loop), or from a
WB setup (open loop).
Spark Knock data. . .
The Areas of Spark Knock
shows the average, peak and total spark retard from detonation. The
counts display shows the number of counts (divided by 64) from the
Click on the Boost tab for
data while the engine was in boost. If a 3-bar MAP sensor is installed
the display will auto scale to 300 KPa maximum.
Trip Computer. . .
The Trip display shows instant and average MPG, RPM, distance traveled
and fuel consumed. The 'Lean Cruise' bar at the bottom of the screen
signifies that the ECM is in highway lean cruise mode.
If a WB O2 controller is present that information will also be
And when the KPH preference is selected, the display is in metric
units. . .
Diagnostic Display. . .
Displays the raw sensor
values. This helps when troubleshooting.
Analysis display. . .
An entire data log can be quickly scrolled through to evaluate the
desired area. The Dump Log button creates a text file that
contains additional data. This file can be viewed via Notepad or
Wordpad. It can also be read into a spread sheet program such as Excel.
The line highlighted in green is from a marker placed in the data log.
Markers are added by tapping either the space bar (green highlight) or
the Tab key (yellow highlight). The 'Find Mark' button searches for
these markers and brings the log display to that point.
The '1/4 Mile' button graphs a section of the log. By clicking on the
line to start at and pressing the 1/4 Mile button (or double clicking
on the starting line), a graph is produced. This is shown in the next
Performance Graph and Data. . .
A punch from a stop and a
few gears to boot. A
movable cursor for readout is shown at the 15 second area. The box in
the upper right displays the
information at the point of the cursor.
Grab the cursor with the mouse
and slide it left & right along the graph.
This graph will auto scale between 13.3 seconds and 20 seconds. If the
1/4 mile run is 13.3 seconds or under the maximum scale is 13.3
seconds. Over 13.3 seconds the scale is set to 20 seconds.
User Defined Devices. . .
WUD allows up to 16 different types of devices to be defined. These
devices are to be connected to one of the 8 ADC channels for data
logging. This allows the EBL Flash user to connect any 0 - 5 volt
linear output device to the system for logging.
