From my understanding the PIM and the Cherry bomb have the same map installed. The Cherrybomb just uses the race map in the factory computer and the PIM has the same exact map installed in its own memory bank. I will not deal with Yoshi if the two maps truley are the same. The only way to find out is to call Yoshi and find out but GOOD LUCK with getting a straight answer. I would like to see a back to back dyno run with the Cherrybomb then the PIM.
Funny you should ask. I have the following email going out to Yoshi Tomorrow!
First off thanks for getting me out one of the first batches guys but I have a few questions.
As far as the FIMAK and PIM goes can I also take the program you have available for download and use my notebook computer to program the ECU? If not, do you plan on making this option available in the near future? This option would be an excellent thing to add if the ability is not there right now. As the PIM already has the proper port it shouldn't be hard to come up with a simple program that will access the ECU and be able to interact with it. Thinking in this direction it would be better if Yoshi came up with the program rather than a 3rd party.
2nd for my own edification I have a few questions.
First off could you please send me in PDF format the two stock maps that are in the ECU as I would like to know what the stock two maps are in the ECU and how they compare to the 2 maps in the PIM? Of course this is assuming that the CRBM map and the 1st map in the PIM differ. You can see where I'm going here. I really would like to know what maps are being used with various setups.
Secondly could you please explain to me what is happening when I program the ECU with the FIMAK?
a. Am I overwriting the two stock maps? If not, what am I overwriting and where is it stored?
b. Is there any problem with programming 2 maps thus giving the ability to switch between the two maps by putting in the shunt?
Thirdly could you tell me what the db level of the Yoshi Pipe is with and without the spark arrestor and do you currently or are you planning to make a quiet core that will lower the decibel rating of the Yoshi for the LTR to 93 or below?
I am asking these question because I belong to a few technical sites that deal with the new LTR and many individuals have the same question. If I can find some answers it will help me put out the correct information and possibly result in cutting down on the amount of technical questions you get in reference to the PIM, FIMAK and CRBM.
Your help in this matter is greatly appreciated.
