It's possible to read over 100% injector duty cycle. It just doesn't mean you're getting over 100% fuel. I've done it on a long term basis though and been safe. It just indicates that the tune is too rich and there is room to lean out up top.


My day was not so productive. Did buy a rebuilt socketed eprom ecu for my Talon. Only need a MAP and AIT sensor and it'll be time for some REAL tuning!

This is getting into semantics, but w/e.

Even if a reading of 105% DC is possible, really getting 105% DC out of injectors is impossible. No matter, as the 105 reading is NOT duty cycle anyway.

oh ok i'll play too.
just a random freeway flooring. The hydra doesn't output "MAP", it does vac-boost which is lame. I need to set up a map calculated field in MLV. Still working on my throttle enrichments. It goes rich then lean then fine.

1st day in the last 9 days I left my bedroom, nursing a bad back. Made it all the way to a driveway and sat in a break seat for 30 minutes and than back to bed. I saw sunshine...now thats productive!

I'm glad someone is finally making use of my magnehelic gauge. or rather I assume you are? Would be good for testing cross radiator pressure. just means long tubing.

What size is the metal sheet for your undertray? I need to pick one up. Most the hardware stores don't sell them in big enough sheets though.

exactly, humidity (which we have in spades in NY) makes it feel much hotter than it actually is.

Sorry for the further hijack.

You all suck. It's 95 today and humid as ever. No A/C and I feel like going out and cranking the boost up to 14 psi today. I must be crazy.

Try being in direct sun from 6am to 6pm, down in a hole with no breeze, surrounded by aluminum. Not to mention swinging a hammer or carrying **** the entire time. That is ******* hot.

Going to and from your car, work, or home.....doesn't count. Thats called getting a breath of fresh air.
