one for the geeks, what afrs are you running them at, heard there chocolate?
TBH, only done 1 so far, and played it safe, generally about 0.5-0.8 AFR richer throughout the whole rev range. So 11.8/12.0ish on spool up and flat 11.2ish on WOT. No leaner than 11.5 on WOT.
However, I generally don't like mapping them.
Thought this was an evo forum.... lol x
lol, it is.
At least it's in the non evo section
whats your beef with them herman, what dont you like about them
Is it cos they is blue lol
Overly complicated, weak engines and don't make great figures for the hassle. Now rotaries on the other hand, they are a pain in the ass too, but at least you get over 300 BHP from a 1.3!! That is worth it, the boxer engine just isn't.
Don't get me wrong, if someone wants one done, I won't say no, but I prefer to map 4G63's, SR20's, 1JZ's, 2JZ's, RB's, etc, etc. Good strong reliable engines that perform well without worrying about something melting.
great explaination herman, another thing what additional tables are there on a scoob rom do i need to look at in ecuflash as alot of tables are left alone but are there some that do need adjusting
I've been asked to do scoobs on occasion, and they all get the same two word reply (begins with F and ends with F)
explain your actions sir sponner alot
hes sorry to hijack ya gekky thread but wots the crack over the road?? saw a thread about a someone demanding a new engine that had been mapped by someone but the thread was closed and i couldnt get into it then it dissapeared ?????? give me the gossip :whistling::whistling:
can inform me too geof, I only got to the third page before it disapeared.
well I dont want to have to walk home
you got 3 pages more than me so spill the beans :whistling::whistling:
i read the lot the bloke seems to blame the geek and so far imo i wouldnt, he hasnt a clue what hes on about, ie using compressed air down the dipstick tube to get oil pressure WTF????
anyone know why the thread was removed? was it Andy trying to protect the 'geekmapper.com' name?
it was killin1's thread wernt it????? so wheres it gone???????? very odd indeed
Basically the person got a full engine build (or whole engine that was freshly built) and went to the mappers to get Kelford 272's fitted and mapped. Got the 272's in, and then the valves made contact with the pistons, damaging the head, valves & cams.
So the owner got a new head, new cams, titanium springs & retainers. Got them fitted, by the same person (mapper), but he did not properly lap the valves and apparently never fitted the titanium retainers or new springs (thats what Norris told the owner when this new head was sent down for inspection after the engine let go), however the car still ran. Went out to map it, as they upped the boost the piston let go, appears to be the piston that made contact with the valve that let go.
Now he wants the mapper to fix it. It's the mechanical work he is annoyed with, not the map itself. To me it sounds like when the piston made contact with the valve it damaged it and weakened it, then when upping the boost it gave up. I am also 99% sure I know who said mapper is by various bits of information I have gathered.
There is more to it, but that was the gist of the thread TBH.
how many ecuflashers do you know of up your neck of the woods Herm?
