Re: Gonna start a build and see where it goes ===> TWINSCREW !!! :-p

The regs that apply to modified road cars are different from those that apply to competition cars. For modified road cars to be legally used on the streets they must obtain a Warrant of Fitness (WOF) by passing a six-monthly standardised inspection. The WOF test is mandatory for all road cars modifi...

Re: Gonna start a build and see where it goes ===> TWINSCREW !!! :-p

Transport regulations here in NZ say that any RWD car that has been powered up by the addition of a turbo or supercharger must be fitted with driveshaft hoops. So I have been busy measuring and fabricating. These have to bolt thru the floor as there is no other practical way to fix them to the car. ...

Re: COP with Adaptronic

I don't know if having the OEM igniter connected is a problem or not. I put that on the list because you have been messing around with the wiring and the more redundant parts you leave connected the higher the chance of a loose wire/short to ground or some other problem. In fact, if the igniter is s...

Re: COP with Adaptronic

Second... if I understand correctly, you were using the M1200 to trigger the OEM single coil and distributor ignition system. If so, the ECU would have been supplying 4 trigger signals per 720deg of crank rotation from a single ignition output. To get this to work you would need to have selected &qu...

Re: Fuel Pump Power Question - GTS Zenki

How are you planning to control the fuel pump ? On a GTS the COR supplies power during cranking and after the door in the AFM has opened. The ECU has the ability to shut the pump off (by de-energizing the COR) if the engine stalls after you hit a tree. As a minimum you would want the COR output to c...

The ECU water temp sensor behind the head is the green one. The brown one is the cold start injector time switch. The temp sensor is a thermistor, so basically pretty reliable.

Hmm... something doesn't seem quite right... it's like you are running out of fuel for some reason.

Thefuel requirements of an engine vary with both rpm and load.

Can't answer that question. But I do recall that when installing a converted FWD 16V engine into an AE86, there was an alignment issue. FWD crank pulleys have a slightly different offset to RWD crank pulleys, and to make everything line up, you have to use all FWD pulleys or all RWD pulleys. That is...
