Re: E85 back to Pump 93

So I got a new fuel pressure gauge, upon ignition the fuel pressure goes to 40 psi then drops to 37 psi .. And holds there, I start up the motor and wideband reads 14.7 for about 30 seconds then goes pig rich to 10's while fuel pressure remains at 37 psi solid ... I blip the gas pedal and the fuel p...

Re: E85 back to Pump 93

So i checked the ecu pins where the Water Temps Sensor wires are connected and checks out fine... It did the same at the ecu pins like it did directly at the sensor... So if its water temp sensor related then it has to be in the ECU.. Next thing i did was check the fuel press. They say that a fuel p...

Hmm .. You have a point there, I never checked it at the ecu harness. I had my meter at the sensor itself, when I get home I will check those readings at the ecu and update you

Re: E85 back to Pump 93

Speaking of water temp sensor I did read about that while doing an internet search about this issue about how it could be stuck in cold mode until it gets to operating temp .. So I read the fsm and it showed what resistance it should be at what temps and it read as if it was ok.. Cold motor it read ...

E85 back to Pump 93

So about 5 yrs ago or maybe a bit more i switched to E85, running a Emanage Blue, i upped the injector chart +35% at idle and during boost to compensate for the E85 conversion.. Kept the same Walbro 255LPH fuel pump, same 300zx fuel filter, same Nismo 615cc injectors… All has been good for the 5 yrs...

Re: Recirculated my waste gate :-)

If im running low boost say 10psi or less, I could see this being an issue. im only running 9 lbs and i could hear it start to open around 5 lbs and gets full open scream at 9 lb...

Re: Oil/air seperater box

fluid, air, sound are all lazy, they'll take the path of least resistance. due to the VC being a pretty straight shot for the air to go and the PCV having to dance through the separator you could say its easier for the air to go out the VC. picture a pail with two holes in it, if one holes bigger o...

Re: Oil/air seperater box

air goes out your valve cover. you need to do the same thing with the pcv as you do the vc as they are both pushing air - start your car and see for yourself. its not possible to get one to flow in and the other to flow out. the whole point of a barb in place of the pcv is for vta. if your going to...

Re: Oil/air seperater box

I seriously doubt that the air/oil separator box can get clogged. If you've ever looked at the insides of one, it's fairly open. You'd have to run some serious gunk through it for it to get clogged. However, the PCV valve is a pretty small opening with a spring holding it close, so they can definit...
