Can't you get onboard datalogging with one of Jean's adapter cards/the GIPO?

Speaking of which, I know it'll be implemented at some point on MS3, but are you working on anything for the MSII in adaptor card form for your DIYPNP et al

Assuming you write correctly, and also assuming that the entire internet community understands EXACTLY how you speak via text.

Stein's right.

This setup is almost exactly the same as the KW kit, except for the turbo. Larger compressor than is needed, running no intercooler, and expandable by adding more fuel and an IC.

By calling me a retard, you are also calling 949racing and Kraftweks retards because it's the same idea.

6 pages in just over two days! You guys took the bait hook, line and sinker.

No we're not. 1000cc injectors? Really? My 580AWHP R32 Skyline GTR only had 700cc sard injectors. Things like that are just laughable. You're doing everything overkill. I like overkill... to a point. Using things though that you will never come close to using their full potential is just silly.

Well... yes there are. But 1000CC injectors on a 1.6L 4 cyl engine? The GTR is also 2.6L so that that offsets it a bit too.

6x700=4200cc
4x1000=4000cc

You need bigger injectors with fewer cylinders. You're right though 1000cc's are pointless unless you're trying for +400whp.

this statement says it all. (I love emoticons too much)

yeah...same idea...except...they don't utilize a turbine side that's attached to the compressor...that acts as a heater...a BIG FREAKING HEATER.

get your facts straight.

Relax ladies, the injectors are from my DSM. No reason to let such nice parts go to waste.

I said the only difference is the turbo. Why are you pointing out the obvious?

you could sell them to some other DSM'r and buy a set of RX7 550cc's for $50.

But I guess money isn't an issue for you, right?

good luck getting it to idle with 1000cc injectors.

Feel free to run whatever injectors you want in your car and I'll do the same.

I don't mind paying my hard-earned money for a better product. There is nothing wrong with that.
