would it be possible that when you are in the software on the data log> logging options screen you had the ability to toggle between say three sets of user defined logging parameters. In my case I like to have have the log permanently recording a basic bunch of channels at ten hertz, but say you want to tweak launch or traction control you have to go in and individually select/unselect channels change the log rate etc, then change them back when you are done. Clicking one button and getting your 'default' settings back would be so much easier.
Also the option to disable turbo over pressure protection during and shortly after a flat shift, with my particular setup, using retard not cut as it seems much less aggressive, I have to have the limit set 70kpa over my normal 220kpa boost level to stop it tripping which almost makes it pointless.

Nice idea. Not short term though.

No.
You've effectively set up an anti lag situation. With the ignition being retarded like that, you're firing at ATDC, so spooling the turbo up massively. Put a turbo speed gauge on if you're interested.
I'd switch back to ignition cut, unless you can reduce the ignition retard enough that you don't get boost spikes but can still shift smoothly.

Is there any chance of more boost control maps? I've been dabbling with a Garrett servo type wastegate actuator in an attempt to get a wider range of control of boost by gear but it really needs more maps to function effectively.

Without sounding obvious - DTA is an 'engine management unit' if you want more sophisticated boost management buy a standalone boost controller?

There will be no more development on the S Series ECUs apart from one that's been outstanding for about a year.
All my time is now taken on the new ECUs.
