After some extensive research. Me and another member on the b15 sentra fb page made a discovery.

However it's not new to other Nissan enthusiasts.

http://m.maxima.org/showthread.php?t=671164&styleid=6

It's an android app called Car gauge Pro. Combined with a Bluetooth wireless obd 2 adapter it has the same datalogg, timing adjustment, idle adjustment, and relearns as consult 2.

The developer has been adding more too it as he goes. It saves the settings. We are still waiting for an app update. Please write to the developers for more support and bug fixes!!

This would be perfect for us 02-03 guys, those who don't see $200 for cipher a reality, and to get around relearns.

I don't need to mention the benefits of timing and idle adjustment.

We are still testing a few things

Known benefits:

Timing +/- 2*
Idle Relearn
Dead cylinder testing
Idle adjustment to your liking
DTC engine code scan and delete
Realtime diagnostics specific for Nissan

I will be doing full write ups and how TOs for everyone.

Updated 6/22/2014




The adapter: Use a BAFX Bluetooth Obd2 adapter. Only one guaranteed to work.

Total cost: Around $30. But well worth it!

Disclaimer: I am not responsible in anyway if you mess your car up. If you advance your timing you should be running a premium gas of around 93 octane. If your car messes up, it ain't my problem.

Things needed for this mod:

-An Android powered device
-Car Gauge Pro App
-An BAFX OBD2 dongle that communicates through bluetooth

Directions:

-The first step is pairing your dongle to your phone. Plug the dongle into the OBD2 port that is just under the steering wheel and then scan on your phone for available bluetooth devices. My dongle was password protected "1234".

-The second step is to connect the dongle to your app. Hit the menu button on your phone or on the app, its the plug in on the bar, and connect to the device.

I have the rest of the process in screenshots. I will add later.





After you adjust the timing just go back to the same menu you used to adjust it and choose the idle air relearn and if you need to adjust your idle rpm it is right there too.

If you need any other screens let me know and I will try to get them as soon as possible.

For Idle Relearn:
Big shoutout to Darkstarxi for this!


I believe that I got the idle relearn to work and this is how I did it:

1) Warm up car and with car running, use Car Gauge Pro to undo any changes made to Idle RPM and Ignition Timing.
2) Turn off car and put key to ACC.
3) With key turned to ACC, the car at operating temperature, the transmission in neutral, ALL electric loads turned off and the steering wheel in the straight ahead position, use Car Gauge Pro to clear all faults (even if your CEL isn't on).
4) Maintaining all of the conditions in step 3, do the Self Learning Control Test and then the Idle Air Volume Learn Test. Both tests should say they are successful.
5) Immediately after completing the Idle Air Volume Learn Test, turn the car on and let it idle until the idle steadies itself out (which shouldn't take too long).
6) When it settles, you can redo any changes to Idle RPM and Ignition Timing.

Please try this out and let me know if it works for you guys.

You can even kill each cylinder for testing.
Clear and read DTC codes.

So how do we know it does timing adjustments? And what's that worth in terms of power? If any

What do you think tuning consists of?

Timing adjustment is one of the main tools of a tune.
It's only capable of -/+2 but that's enough for a power boost or retard of spray.

We still need someone with a datalogg to test timing changes.

But the idle adjustment and all else works on the b15 ecu

Make sure you order the adapter and pay for the app. Only the paid version has the consult 2

@CloudSpecV Thanks for sharing this!

I have the Bluetooth ELM adaptor, I usually use it with torque to check and clear codes on multiple vehicles. I'm buying this app right now!!

Can we +2 timing without having done the knock sensor relocate mod?

I would +2 timing and leave the knock sensor alone.
But that was my opinion. We need more insight on it.
It became an argument on the fb page.
Just make sure you run 93 octane consistently with timing advanced.
Esp if doing knock sensor.
You might get detonation if you don't.

I always run 93 octane, but don't like the idea of relocating the knock sensor.
I'm going to try +2 alone, and see if it feels any different.
