So since the new motor has been installed I have been constantly trying to improve the tune with the voodoo box. It seems like it will tune one gear perfectly for a hard pull. any other gear is close, but not ideal. after about 2 weeks of turning the dials on my way to and from work, I now have every gear boosting at 12.1.
(yeah I know thats a long time to get it right, the first time I tuned it I had it tuned in less than half an hour. This was with the first motor)
Now the only problem seems to be getting to redline with the A/F not going ape **** rich above 5000 RPM. If I lower the max fuel any lower it will go lean.
The only thing I can think of is that it has something to do with the ignition system not being strong enough to completely burn the air/fuel mixture.. it has new NGK plugs gapped down to about .0025 (too many zeros? I'm half asleep)
the plug wires aren't of the highest quality I beleive they are some "pep Boys" brand. Could that be part of the problem?
The more I read about the megasquirt the more I wonder why I dont have one... oh yeah I'm poor
oh and it has the tan top injectors, wastegate is set at 8PSI
