Update ... getting closer

#1 Post by lostsoul » Wed Aug 01, 2018 3:16 pm

Update .... a few more steps closer.
1:The Fuel Pumps were a major issue, couldn't get to fit through the hole, so modified the tank and made a custom hanger ... the filters are Holley Hydramatt.

2: Got the switches mounted and calibrated, from the left are Boost Soleniod on/off, Water Injection on/off, Traction Control on/off and Traction Control adjustment ... current setting = full dry, mid way = wet, then wetter.

3: Race seat is Kevlar, just need to sort mounting.

On the tuning front, the cruise areas are done and boost to 16-17 psi is all but done (finding it very difficult to road tune to full throttle) makes the 16-17psi at 4350 rpm on 43% throttle :-). Now it off to the dyno to do the full throttle stuff and optimize the timing.

Nice clear pics Nigel! I recently just had my fuel pump out, so I know what you mean about it being tight!

Which dyno are you going to and when?

Not which dyno yet, Mike C has good things to say about the guy he uses so am keen to give him a go but if he is too busy I'll will most likely go to Dtech again.
As to when ??? very shortly I hope ... I am wanting to make sure everything works the is supposed to. I am not wanting to waste dyno time fixing shit.

Next 2 - 3 weeks ... a few jobs to be done and a final check over and shake down run ...

Not really Dyno preparation, but couldn't help myself.

Well, Dyno tune day finally came 😀... all going well, just started to add some timing, 1st run made 454kw on 19psi 😈then lost ALL 5 volt sensors 😭😭😭. It appears the 5 volt circuit in the ecu has failed, won't know more until Link have had a look at it ( sending to down Monday ). The engine was the thing I was concerned about as it is built by me and I am far from being a pro engine builder ... it ran perfectly🤗, good pressures, temps etc. Oh, AND funny noises !!!!

A massive thanks to Mike C for giving me a lift home !!

Sounds like another fun day, and another step in your never ending journey!

I guess you meant "no" funny noises?

What was your power curve like?

Yes "noises"
Power curve goes "UP" :-) ... it's not ideal but is early days.

Turns out the ECU was fine ... the Oil Pressure Sensor shorted to ground which sent the ECU into la-lah land. Fitted a new sensor and all is good in the world again. Got some boost leaks to fix before finishing tune.
