 A good understanding of [[v3combinedft|CombinedFT]] and [[fueltrimupdatepoints|fuel trim in general]] will help a lot with your understanding of this function. A good understanding of [[v3combinedft|CombinedFT]] and [[fueltrimupdatepoints|fuel trim in general]] will help a lot with your understanding of this function.

 The MAP sensor you want to log here is the one you have already configured in your **Manifold pressure (MAP)** field on the ECU Input tabs.  An example of this is shown here.  More details on configuring and installing this sensor can be found on the [[sdsetup|ECMLink - Speed Density Setup]] page. The MAP sensor you want to log here is the one you have already configured in your **Manifold pressure (MAP)** field on the ECU Input tabs.  An example of this is shown here.  More details on configuring and installing this sensor can be found on the [[sdsetup|ECMLink - Speed Density Setup]] page.

 **NOTE:​** ​ You're basically changing the very data long term fuel trim was previously based on.  So if you're making fairly large changes to MAF compensation,​ you should consider resetting the long term fuel trim values using the "Reset fuel trims" menu item in the ECU menu. **NOTE:​** ​ You're basically changing the very data long term fuel trim was previously based on.  So if you're making fairly large changes to MAF compensation,​ you should consider resetting the long term fuel trim values using the "Reset fuel trims" menu item in the ECU menu.
