COP CAP Discussion
I added my 10k mfd cap to the COP harness yesterday. Tapped it in right at the hollowed ignitor plug, and tucked the cap in nicely under the ignitor's bracket.
Of course it rained yesterday and this morning, and I didn't want to gallivant on wet roads. Finally this evening it was dry enough to go out. I got a few partial throttle stabs in, and what I noticed was the car was a bit leaner than what I was accustomed to, followed by a tad richer.
I was also cruising a bit leaner than what I'd tuned to, hitting mid 18s instead of mid 17s. And in spots I'd hit high 18s which would cause a lean stumble.
Stronger spark created a better burn (hence lean), creating more MAP and putting me into untuned/less tuned load zones.
Lean down low followed by rich up top
MAP didn't take a giant **** at higher rpms like I've been experiencing.
Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to push harder on the car because there was a damn tour of homes and the cops were everywhere. *** hole cops. I wasn't datalogging anyway.
Interested to hear other experiences as you guys install.
