Re: EGT TEMPS ON 4.8 PETROL PATROL

Petrols are a nightmare to tune....... More timing is better, but the faster the timing, the more likely the engine will ping. Ping or detenation is bad...... very bad and will kill the engine.

Re: EGT TEMPS ON 4.8 PETROL PATROL

EGT's on a petrol engine is not as usefull as on a diesel. On a diesel the EGT's are probably the most important number you want to see where on a petrol I would say the AFR is what will be the killer if it runs too lean........ soecially on forced induction. Julian, I dont think your readings are o...

Ek vermy alle bymiddels.

In my opinie is dit dieselfde as om voorskrifmedisyne by die dokter te kry, en dan op pad huistoe nog ekstra pille by die apteek ook te gaan koop! :mytwocents:

Re: The 4.5 Turbo

Julian, Spitronics is a really really good product. It gives you total control over the engine to do exactly what you want where you want it. There are many safety factors built in which protects the engine like over boost and high water temps. If the engine map is set up to run at 0.5 bar and sudde...

Re: The 4.5 Turbo

Thanks guys Julian, the standard 4.5 conrods are a bit weak and have heqrd of people sending them through the block even on NA setups so its a strenght issue. The compression is still the standard 8.5:1 so that part is ok. An "off the shelve" kit will be a bit tricky at this stage. There were just t...

Re: 4.5 vs 4.8 Starter

One other thing I just spotted. When using the VIN of a facelift 4.8 AT on Partsouq I get another part number.
