I've been tinkering with the car and have wrapped up some small jobs:
--Oil temp sensor is in the pan and now being read by the MS
--Added the knocksense module to the ms3 board (pricey but real nice integration into TS)
--Boost solenoid (PID loop software is... interesting...)
--pcv system catch can (sears air/oil separator)
--breather catch can (custom 2 way)
Most of these things are working well. I'm afraid to push the timing to see if I can log a knock event, but its nice to see things look quiet.
I haven't had much time with the boost solenoid. The overboost protection works. The "setup mode" works. The pid loop may have been programmed by someone without a controls background.
Why on earth is there a slider thing and who programmed the P coefficient backwards? Anyway it still overshoots with PID at 100,0,0.
Engine bay with some catch can details
Catch can details. We'll see how this works. The idea is that it will catch oil while venting boost blowby and not suck it in while drawing in fresh air while in vacuum.
I should start by pointing out that my fluid dynamics knowledge comes from boating.
The theory is that the first plate will push the oily air onto the sidewall; the sidewall will collect oil. The second plate just makes the sidewall contact bigger. Whatever is left then gets mixed into the stainless scrubbie material
Really I had this aluminum laying around and needed to finish off an argon tank
A little blob welding. I meant to put in a little divider but I think it will be fine without it.
