Lean burn details
So I'm looking to build a lean burn circuit on my next MS.
I'm looking to enable it under several conditions:
1) highway MPH
2) consistant rpm for X seconds
3) consistant TPS for X seconds
4) EGT below X value
If I read everything correctly, when lean burn is enabled it should lean the A/F ratio and retard the timing to rein in EGTs. This should essentially reduce engine power capabilities, require more throttle reducing pumping losses and increasing MPG.
Is there any basic concepts I'm missing? This project is in the very beginning. Any articles / info / ideas would be appriciated....
