Glad it's moving forward Andy, hopefully yours will take less time than mine to rebuild! Let me know if you need a hand. Getting on top of house projects so should start to have more time after we meet in SeptAwesome news mate, glad its made its 1st trip out.
My pistons have arrived and block will be going to the shop next week for the start of its rebuild!
Probably need to map with safe afr targets as mapping off the throttle only will be quite coarse. Should be fun though, take your time, start rich and lean offBase map, yes, but the bottom end was quite far away, fuelling wise. Ignition wise, I can copy one of my other racers for a starting point, as VW's
don't seem quite as fussy. The intake system is all mix match, Jenvey's etc etc, so no MAF or MAP.
I wish to learn, and as a retired controls engineer should be in a reasonable position to work it all out
I have some experience, having mapped a standalone Lumenition system nearly 20 years ago, went well (on the rollers, old school way)
If you're running with a modified ECU you then you have a modified map. The apexi ECU you will have have a standardish basemap so would need adjusting or you could damage your car.Thanks for that run-down Campell. It was interesting for me to read as you and i share the same ECU and data logging but i have yet to install the ECU. At the moment mine is running on a chipped ECU. After my rebuild and of course changing many aspects of the engine from its previous guise, it doesn't run quite as well as it did.
In your opinion, do you think i'd benefit anything by plugging in the Apexi ECU with the commander? In regards to the engine running better? i remember someone saying it has a base map.
