#378709 Been On The Dyno Again (To Reduce Power)

Posted by DanE on 30 November 2017 - 09:53 AM

Nothing to do with mapping, it's to do with the twin throttle body set up and bypass valve, at cruising throttle the engine load is light keeping the bypass open meaning no boost. Slight change in load and plenum goes from vacuum to positive pressure closing the bypass and giving massive torque instantly. Meaning trying to cruise at 70mph is hard work. Thus the dual map and lo boost option. IE cold, damp, cruising, missis in the car mode.

#378704 Been On The Dyno Again (To Reduce Power)

I have now got a car with dual identity, as you can see the boosted map ran 242bhp and 256ft lb of torque (same as before) which is great fun but hard to drive when trying to drive steady on a cruise up the motorway. so i have been trying to figure a way to hold the supercharger at bay which i have now designed and tested. so went to the the dyno again to get the 2nd map rewritten the car is is now truly awesome, i can have a normally aspirated easy to drive car with 130bhp then flick a switch on the move and have 242bhp making the car fast as feck !

#377174 Mikuni R1 Carb Problems... Help!

Posted by DanE on 22 September 2017 - 06:17 AM

What sizes jets you need is guess work, I used fireblade carbs on my pinto with 1.40mm mains standard idle jets and blocked air correctors. If it was me I would find a standard carb set up for now. Bike carbs can be a diffecult thing to set up at the best of time, the only real way to get decent results is to find a rolling rd with a decent operator who understands bike carbs. When set up right they are perfectly good. Would I use them again ? Probably not. Good luck

#377129 Zetec And Electric Water Pump Still Overcooling

Posted by DanE on 20 September 2017 - 08:12 PM

I've been in talks with them after the generic email and having a discussion with demon tweeks who seem to have contacted them. I received a large email from DC with an apology and a large list of questions on my set up & specs. I answered everything which they then passed on to there chief engineer, they have concluded I need the ewp 80 and there other controller. I maybe miss reading there email but I think they are sending out new kit from Oz.if this then turns out to be the case then that is top customer service ! Either way they do now seem to be interested in solving the issues...

#376761 Supercharger Boost Control

Posted by DanE on 06 September 2017 - 05:31 PM

Started a new project today to try and tame the boost when trying to cruise @70mph. The idea is using a Mac 3port solenoid boost controller and a mini vacuum pump. The plan is when I switch to economy map it will switch the valve over so the plenum vac line to bypass valve is closed stopping boost pressure at the same time the mini vacuum pump then pulls the bypass valve open thus stopping boost. Hopefully then I will be able to drive at 70mph without boosting to warp speed all the time... Will update when I have made and fitted it all.
