    Clutch Too Aggressive? Here's a way to calm it down, requires a little fabrication

    Agreed. Anything that makes launches more efficient is a good thing. :thumb:

    Clutch Too Aggressive? Here's a way to calm it down, requires a little fabrication

    The clutch is directly coupled to the motor the instant it fully engages. Therefore, any torque that is measured at the input to the transmission is still just a function of total engine torque, once the clutch is engaged. During the time it is in the process of engaging, any excess power not...

    horrible problem after timing belt change

    Since when? Did you read the article I linked to up there ^ ?If the head is torqued down and the valves will stay closed, you can leak test it. Hell, it doesn't even have to be in the car.

    Clutch Too Aggressive? Here's a way to calm it down, requires a little fabrication

    I've read it 3 times and still haven't got a clue what I'm reading. Maybe I'm just slow today.I am however, EXTREMELY interested in some of those magic beans that somehow get 900 ft/lbs of torque out of a motor that is only capable of producing 450 ft/lbs. :D

    Clutch Too Aggressive? Here's a way to calm it down, requires a little fabrication

    Huh?I'm thinking that if it took 450ft/lbs of torque to free rev the engine to 2000rpm, that is a tight ass motor. :)

    Do a leak-down test and find out where your compression is going.1G (90-94) T/E/L 2.0L Turbo engine Compression ratio 7.8:1 Standard compression 164 psi Service limit 121 psi

    ECMlink Flat Powerband

    1. You need to clip the log to only the part you are wanting people to look at 2. You're running pig rich 3. You're running hot 4. You're losing air somewhere...quite a bit of it if you are on an 18G and airflow is even close to calibrated. 5. Your pull is in second gear instead of third, and...

    1G Misfire

    No, it won't. The throttle cable isn't tied into the ignition circuit in any way, shape, or form.It may cause idle issues, a sticking or rough feeling gas pedal, or malfunctioning cruise control (if equipped)... but it isn't going to cause one or more spark plugs to misfire.

    FIC BlueMax 1450cc Tuning

    Correct. Properly characterized data (from Tom or Jens) for individual injectors will always be far more accurate than you can get from looking at a logged error value that is a culmination of many factors.My personal opinion is that even theoretical latency values printed on...

    FIC BlueMax 1450cc Tuning

    It is a bit confusing, which is why I purposely didn't go into a lot of detail. IMO, most people that are new to tuning end up making things worse when they try to tune deadtime by using fuel trim values. That is why I suggest just sticking with recommended or tested values.In a nut shell...
