Re: EA Injector Slope Tool

With that datalog, EA is calculating you have 'very' good injectors. The LS is what characterizes how quickly the injectors stop flowing once the pulse ends. It's mechanical. Being they're designed for a higher pressure, they need a stronger spring inside to close it against that pressure. With your...

Re: Colder spark plugs for GT40p heads

I think advertised, they are supposed to be somewhere near 58cc. My heads ranged from 60-62cc AFTER being decked. I do something similar. I mark them as you describe so I can see where the strap ends up landing when threaded into the head all the way. And I mix-n-match the plugs to get the strap po...

Re: EA Injector Slope Tool

Boy, haven't been on here in years. Anywho, why would you think you'd drown the plugs? You have '30' lb injectors and EA is calculating they're 29.19. Damn close. And if they're 30 at 50psi, being smaller at a lower pressure is to be expected. Is it the low slope that is scaring you? The calculated ...

The eec will calculate how much fuel is needed based on the current air going in (MAF or VE table) and what the desired AFR is (open loop table). It will be accurate only once the fuel is dialed in.

There could be other reasons too. Did it happen right after installing the quarterhorse? Could be other fueling problems, spark, etc.

Does it start if after you first try, and then push pedal to the floor (clears flood condition)?

Notice in the side-by-side of the LED and Halogen. Even the Halogen has some scatter directly above the center. It does, but with much less intensity.

You have a lot of light bleeding above the horizontal cut off. Any light of intensity should be readjusted below the center line of the headlights or you will be irritating on coming drivers if you live in a fairly populated area. Even that scattered light up higher doesn't look like 'much'. But it ...

The curve is a function of how much air the sensor read vs the actual air. A larger tube makes it 'read' less for a give flow. You could try the opposite. If you reduce the sensor's opening to read less air, you're get the same thing...

Re: Back to basics (for me!). So once Lambse matches the WB..... Then.....?

Yeah, once you got LAMBSEs matching WB, then your fuel dialing is done and you move to tuning. Assuming your WOT LAMBSE also match the WB, then you'd go into the Base OL Fuel table. In there is where you set your desired AFR when you go into open loop which includes WOT.

Re: kg/hr for healthy 5.0

Ditto. IMHO, since you took 10% off the curve, the curve was probably good as it was. I'd put it back to original and take 10% fuel out of it (make high slope 10% larger and see where it gets you. Maybe low slope too as with large injectors, a good portion of the pulse may come from it's contribution.

Like Lead says, it's not the efficiency. What is happening, even though the MAFV's are the same at different rpm's, the result is that the injector pulsewidth HAVE to be different. Think about it, same MAF means same amount of air. If you have the same amount of air, what else do you need? Same amou...
