Automatic analyzing the cylinder pressure waveform

CSS script "Efficiency" graphs have shown that all cylinders are contributing the same power - there are no misfires.
Dynamic compression in the engine cylinders has not been measured, since at the last measurement stage (after the last sharp throttle) the throttle valve has closed.
To keep the throttle open, you can use Remote Power Off:
The "Phase" tab on channel 3 showed that during a smooth throttle, the camshaft sensor signal shifted to the later side by ~50°. This means that the valve timing control system is working. This system only works if CKP-CMP signals relationship is correct. That is, the Engine Control Unit determines that the timing marks are set normally.
The "Valve timing" tab of the Px script showed the following real values of the valve opening and closing angles:
The exhaust valve opens earlier than the factory value, and closes later than the factory value. It means that the thermal clearance of this valve is slightly smaller than it should be.
The Px script showed that during a sharp throttle, the engine sucked a little amount of air-fuel mixture.
But in this case, it does not mean that the engine is not working properly. It means that the Engine Control Unit has a nuance: when you press the accelerator pedal on a car without moving, it does not open fully the electronic throttle valve.
This nuance can be solved if you use Remote Power Off (I have already mentioned it). After a sharp throttle, the engine must be stopped using Remote Power Off (it will turn off the fuel injection), and keep the accelerator pedal fully pressed to the floor.
