Re: Beercans s13

after 2 years of running on this lsx setup (and over 11 years with this car), was finally time to let her go with all the changes going on in our lives at the moment. Had some issues that caused the car to get too hot on me for my comfort driving home one day, pulled off and let her cool down. Ended...

So, did a controlled experiment this week trying to get some fuel economy out of my engine. only changing driving style, limiting to about 15% throttle, was able to roughly 160 miles from 9 gallons, effectively 17 mpg in city driving (couple stops here and there, mostly 45-55mph driving). still have...

fwiw, its extremely simple to configure ms3x to handle fans (and you have more accurate control vs using the thermoswitches). you can configure them to come on using data from multiple other sensor units (i.e. rpm/mph/clt/etc). if you pull up the fan menu in tunerstudio, you can see the outputs you ...

Re: Max boost for injectors?

just so you know There is not a direct correlation between the amount of boost and injector sizes. Each turbo produces a different amount of power for each PSI of pressure. How you can tell if you have enough room left 1) get the compressor map for your turbo 2) get the efficiency conversion (how mu...

if you want to use the hx35w (i went that route), you can weld the wastegate flap shut on the turbo then utilize an external wastegate. The internal gate isnt good for our application because it has bad opening characteristics and a high psi rate on it. You get much better control with external gate...
