    Cluster inverter reverse engineering project

    Hi Mark, I don't have a blown inverter for you but I've enjoyed the thread. Great work and I look forward to what you figure out and what comes of this. Malcolm

    Megasquirt?

    Sounds like the exact same design sensors I'm running. I have one on each side of the block. It does sound like yours is responding pretty well. I'll PM you and we can compare configurations, perhaps I need to switch sensors again and try the same ones you're using. I have noticed quite a...

    Megasquirt?

    Oh ok. Doesn't the factory sensor have a stud sticking out and requires a boss to turn into? Normally in the valley of the block. According to my notes (assuming I kept updated properly lol) I'm currently running Bosch sensor 0 261 231 188. I too have it work the way you describe but not sure...

    Megasquirt?

    What settings do use on the knock sensors and how have your found their performance? I've played with the knock sensors quite a bit and not at a level where I really trust them. I find way too much "noise" and false positives. I have an aluminum block which I know changes things a little...

    Dipstick Leaking

    I'd just pop it out and replace the o-ring if that's all it is. I went Lokar because of my headers and I had no choice but prior to that stock worked just fine.

    Flow test - are these really 60# injectors?

    Also take note of the pressure at which the injectors are rated and convert accordingly. If brand A rated their 39 lb injectors using 39 PSI and brand B rated their 60 lb injectors at 43 PSI or 50 PSI etc. then you need to do the math to make sure you're comparing apples to apples. Perhaps you...

    Hellcats?

    I think this is probably what you were looking for lol BTW in that vid right on the hit it looks like I'm not really going, is because my tires are just spinning. I was just laying black lines down the highway going no where lol. It's been too long, 700 ~ 800. Honestly I think it was more...

    Driver's side window not going down

    If the lights dim power is been drawn and the motor is likely bound up by something. I wouldn’t suspect a bad solder joint yet.

    Need a new alternator.

    I think it's a Gates brand but can't remember. Had it a while.

    Need a new alternator.

    Do yourself a favor and get a laser alignment tool. They're about $60 or so but without it you're just pissing in the wind guessing if your pulley lines up or not. Many brands are this way on purpose so you can shim to fit. Remember most of these cars have aftermarket blowers & pulleys...

    Need a new alternator.

    It bolts in but does require a shim or washer to make sure the pulley lines up correctly. Both top and bottom bolt. I used a laser pulley alignment tool and tried various shims/washers till it fit perfect. I also have an aftermarket balancer and lower pulley which adds a little to the mix...

    Need a new alternator.

    My Nations is 14.4 volts (you can adjust to what ever you like) and it holds that solid. Idle, cruising, WOT all the way to redline it's 14.4 volts. Under WOT I may see occasional blips to 14.2. Doesn't matter if cold, warm, cooling fans are on max, headlights etc. Always 14.4 solid.

    J2Fab flowmod/customer service help needed

    My first one wouldn't hold voltage at idle and was worthless. Then came the hairpin extremes and were supposed to cure all these issues. Got one of those and it didn't fit worth a darn and once done fighting that and getting it to fit it was dead in 1200 miles.

    [emoji23] Thats hilarious. I’ve had both on the work bench at the same time. How embarrassing for Nations to be compared like that. His over priced junk is not even in the same league.

    Alternator recommendation

    What he said. Things are so bad there's an entire group dedicated to people complaining about parts, parts that haven't arrived since last year, service or lack there of, no refunds, no warranty, no help. It's a total mess. Unfortunately the alternators on these cars sit right by the exhaust...

    J2Fab flowmod/customer service help needed

    Sorry to hear of your troubles. You're not alone, a lot of people have been posting similar complaints all over the place including social media. Someone posted some policies with charging back claims on your credit card, since so many people are in the same situation, and since you've...

    Mark 8 cooling fan upgrade

    No pulley issues since ditching the 2.9 for the 2.3. You can likely run separate speeds. I was just telling you why people were tying the two together.

    New Project - DIY Fuel Pump Controller

    I thought your first post said you were return style fuel system. If that's the case the tune should be updated accordingly and the returnless fuel pump table is no longer referenced or used. Instead the signal from the ECU to the FPDM is simply on or off. Hence using the MAF signal to...

    Mark 8 cooling fan upgrade

    Low and high speed tying together comes from not over powering individual relays or circuits, not so much the main 50 amp feeding them both. What temp issues are you referring to with regards to TVS and Whipple? Sorry thread is 4 years old, a lot has changed many times over since then.

    Mark 8 cooling fan upgrade

    Yes really old thread lol. I see no point in loosing the shroud. Even the most powerful fans are worthless without a shroud. As for mph, a stock tune turns the fan off at 50 mph and back on at 48 mph. Your tuner could change that.
