EFR Help (None miata related)
Hey guys, a friend of mine installed an EFR turbo kit for his RSX, and it does some very, very strange things. Since you guys are all turbo wizards, I'd figured I'd ask here instead of the stupid honda forums.
Basically what the car does, is it'll spike in boost, then it'll drop off through the RPM band, and closer to redline it spools back up. And sometimes it'll spike in boost so hard it hits boost cut.
We're targeting 15 psi, and we have boost cut set at 17.
So in lower gears:
3000 rpms @ 10 psi
4000 rpms @ 15 psi
5000 RPMS @ 12 psi
6000 RPMS @ 10
7000 RPMS @ 12 PSI
8000 RPMS @ 13
But if we're say in 4th, if we go WOT from 3-3500, it'll spool and hit boost cut at like 4100.
Right now, we running ONLY the internal gate. We did have the BCSV hooked up to the KPRO, but have since removed it to help figure out this problem.
I figured we could turn the preload down on the arm, and just use boost by gear, but I feel there's actually some issues with it.
I did a boost leak test, and it passed. I did the leak test to 20 psi on my air compressor, and no leaks.
