I wasnt "dissing" them, just stating exactly what you are saying, they have experience on working with Dodge turbos.GLHS837 said:I beg to differ on the not talented part. Spend some time on Team Omni archives and look at the tecnical level of some of the discussions that take place. http://www.escribe.com/automotive/american/teamomni/ And remember, these folks started doing this a long time ago.
Nice idea. Thanks for taking upon yourself to help others.cali said:I have to jump in on this one. I dont want to see any of us blowing up our brand new engines.
I have planned soon (1000-1500 miles) to hit the dyno, with A/F monitoring. I will have a base run, and then boost upped to monitor A/F so as to determine a SAFE , boost level with STOCK ECU/ FUEL INJECTORS.
Oh but they are very useful since most people are not going to run a "wide band" o2 sensor in their cars. This gauge is for people whose cars are tuned by there own hands, not from hired help.Also do some more reading on those A/F gauges in the link. They are not very accurate since the rely on the STOCK o2 sensor. Wideband monitoring would be the ideal setup, so I plan on getting on the DYNO to know what I can and cannot do.
No. The ECU does not "Know" that you are upping the pressure.Now i wonder about this:
Lets say you increase fuel pressure, doesn’t the ECU control the amount of time the injectors *pump* fuel out?
If so doesnt upping the fuel pressure become a moot point?
Thats what I dont like....someone need to crack this damn ECU!You are forcing more fuel through the injectors over the same injector on time than at stock pressure. Effectively increasing the size of the injectors.
This can be a useful tool to bridge the gap between stock injectors and upgraded ones. Using too much pressure will cause over rich conditions off boost and at extreme pressures jam the injectors open or closed. Bad
Still a bit foggy on that one...I had a civic, and installing a FPR was a no brainer. When u say run a line? Do you mean run a line back to the tank?The problem with all of chryslers cars is that they have went to a dead head system where there is no fuel return line so you can install and adj fpr. The only way to be able to change fuel pressure is to send more voltage to the fuel pump via lets say a Boost-a-pump from Kenne Bell or to take out the stock regulator in the tank and run a return line to the front of the car with an adj. regulator so there you can change fuel pressure.
Ahh but these www.dawesdevices.com arnt "those" blinky light meters.cali said:Also I realise that most people won't do wideband tuning, but you owe it to yourself or your engine to get it properly tuned (wideband) at least once.
I have heard quite a bit that those led A/F guages are horrible especially on Forecd Induction engines.[/b]
