Q: What do I do if someone else has already inconsiderately placed another sticker in those locations on my car?

Holy ****, mind blown with this thread.
Next paycheck is dedicated to this MOD so I can be UB3R L337 like Braineysack.

Question: any tuning or fuel management required with this setup?

If you ever head over to Charleston, or next time I am in Atlanta, I can hook you up with one or two. I am pretty sure I have spares.

They will probably delete because of FFS remark so here is my reply:

I agree. You probably need a coolant reroute to give you more even cooling across your engine. Number four is always the most sensitive and first to go.

Absolutely agree. This is why in competitive racing with wedge shaped combustion chambers it is considered important to index your spark plugs. The less shrouding around the spark kernel, the better.

Absolute truth.

Also the truth, unless you spend a few minutes installing a coolant reroute.

Also truth. And I always wanted individual EGT sensors for each cylinder for this reason.

I'm absolutely certain your getting detonation.
All because you can't hear it over the wind noise, SC whine, road noise, exhaust and engine noise doesn't mean you don't have it.

My advice is ditch the PCPro and go for a standalone like the MegaSquirt, Adaptronic, Hydra etc.


Yes, yes, yes, and definitely.

Build them for $25 or buy them for $60. You want them.

I don't buy the dual feed fuel rail as something that is needed. For pressure to be created in the rail, it fuel has to be restricted. If you put a gauge on either end of the rail it would read the same. The only ways this would not be the case would be if the rail was a very long and large amounts of drag were created by the fuel flowing from one end to the other, or if the fuel was thicker like syrup and drag was created. Gasoline is too thin and the diameter of the rail is too large and it's length too short for me to accept the dual feed as necessary. Especially when it has been documented ad nauseum that we have inherent imbalance in the factory cooling design.

I didn't think this was possible with the FFS kit. Are you sure it wasn't a turbo? You probably need to edit this post before people start to realize there is a pattern here.

Because hot.

The fourth cylinder is the hottest cylinder unless you have reroute to help create more even cooling across the engine...

Really? That sounds like a pretty serious design flaw.

Wait a minute... That also means that they cannot alter fuel enrichment as the temperature changes? Holy cow! That sounds like a really dangerous device to run on a car.

Run a MegaSquirt, Adaptronic, Hydra, or AEM or something so you don't end up hurt. I remember 5th injector drivers were what people used back in 1986 over in Japan before there was anything else. That technology is very old now. And much better technology is very cheap. You don't use a home computer that was built the same as in 1986. Why would you use something like that for something as expensive as your engine? I'm confused by that.


The forums are for opinions and there are mine. I am really sorry for the op's situation. Best of luck from here on out.

Steve
