Re: Adam's formerly supercharged... now soon-to-be-turbo'd, S14

Lol, wow. What is your brushless project all about? Brushless motors kick a55 and are soooo much more efficient than brushed motors. If I had the time and money, I'd upgrade to brushless cooling fan motors and a brushless fuel pump. Typically, a higher KV will spin to a higher RPM, but will have les...

Re: Adam's formerly supercharged... now soon-to-be-turbo'd, S14

I'm glad you still post Adam, I usually stop by the forum once a month to see what everyone's up to. Love that the S14 is or at least was your daily before the fueling issues. I think itll be a simply fix for your fuel fluctuations, maybe a split line that connects the FP to the sending unit on the...

Re: Adam's formerly supercharged... now soon-to-be-turbo'd,

Something I found very odd was that when I connected the flex fuel sensor to the BOB and enabled flex fuel in the settings, I see 0.0V on the Data window. However, all 4 of the ADC inputs show the exact same voltage which hovers around 2.0-2.3V. But the thing is, the flex fuel wire is literally the...

Re: Adam's formerly supercharged... now soon-to-be-turbo'd, S14

Man I love this build, you have me almost convinced to go turbo Ka over a v8 swap (for a number of reasons, mainly it's my daily) but also considering this vacuum setup for my Evo. I rebuilt that engine about 2 years ago and has about 12k miles on it I think and now Cyl 3 is lower compression by ab...

Re: Adam's formerly supercharged... now soon-to-be-turbo'd, S14

I've been having trouble with keeping AFR's stable during high boost/RPM for a while now, especially in 4th/5th gears (which both get 22-24 psi using boost-by-gear). It will get these spikes where the AFR will hit high 11s to low 12s. I finally decided to hook up the laptop to see if I could see any...

I was VTA before and didn't like it for a number of reasons. Vacuum in the crankcase is always preferred.

Re: Adjustable timing chain tensioners advice

It's an awesome idea. That's exactly how a lot of car's timing chain adjusters work from the factory. And they "appear" to be well made in the pics. I don't know anything about that company though.

Re: Adam's formerly supercharged... now soon-to-be-turbo'd,

I know. It blows me away. I think it's got a couple more gallons in it now. I can tell by how fast the vacuum depletes as to whether the tank is getting full. I raced a stretched/modded 600cc bike a couple nights ago, and for once, I got some of it on film. Granted, I only got the last part of it on...

Good to hear someone is still wrenching on these things.... keep us posted no the progress and results. I take it this would theoretically let the engine and engine oil last longer? Yes, one of the vacuum setup's main advantages is that it keeps the oil cleaner. And I'm hoping the motor will last l...

(The rebuild was at 155,111 miles, which was in September of 2016). She is still kicking a55 and going strong!! So, after d!cking around with this for well over a ye...

Re: S13 Ka low throttle hesitation, bucking, flat spot.

I didn't see any mention of your TPS sensor. Check all of the connections and check/monitor voltage, especially when it's doing this "bucking". I bet you have a wiring short or loose connection that's causing all of this. If it turns out that all connections are good, try resetting the TPS sensor as...

I simply have to remove the potentiometer from the board and use resistors and a relay to get the contro...

Re: Adam's formerly supercharged... now soon-to-be-turbo'd,

Normally it wouldn't be that big of a deal, but I have a pretty busy family life now, so who knows when the hell I'll get this fixed. And if I'm going to pull the intake manifold, I'm going to go ahead and fix a few things, like the 1/8" NPT ports on the plenum that are tapped way too deep.
