Re: EFI for small industrial engine--aircraft use

Well, it's been quite the month, and it's still going. Never did write that email, either. Took me 5 minutes to even remember what it was. A few urgent chores still on the plate right now unfortunately. :-( Sorry!

Re: Fred's 1994 Type R Mazda Lantis

Haven't posted here for a while, but this bloody thing is still going. It has had a broken window a new wing mirror (again) and some oil topped up into it. Due (overdue) for a proper oil change in 500km or so. But I was driving it the other night and I thought: This car is on its last legs. Exhaust ...

Re: EFI for small industrial engine--aircraft use

Been flat out, will get a proper response to the above written up ASAP. Also owe someone a long email. Probably both honoured the same night. Cheers.

Link to the product, too, so I can see what it's intended for - last I checked circuits either did inj well or ign well, not both.

Re: Ahmad's 1994 Proton Wira (44th)

Gidday, Not sure on the spec of that MAP sensor, the values in the code I got from the data sheets for the devices in question, compare the two data sheets and if the voltage to pressure ratios are the same, you can use it without change. You can stick raw values in there, or use the macro that does...

Re: Another MAX9926 VR board

Perfect, you can go as low as you like on the shunt, the limit being low speed cranking where the lower you go, the less signal you get, and you could get to the point of preventing starting :-) Beware of phase offsets that vary with RPM with "softer" circuits, though - you should scope/me...

Re: EFI for small industrial engine--aircraft use

You raise some good points, however you're taking a paranoia approach to the code side of things. The things to fear are flash corruption and hardware lockup/latchup leaving the code helpless in the first place. Hence the comments about power supplies and so forth - those things prevent potentially ...

Sounds about the same - sounded pretty good with no mufflers ringing it out up on the hoist before welding the new stuff in :-D Link to RB30 4wd swap on gtr.co.uk: https://www.gtr.co.uk/threads/rb30-engine-conversion-lots-of-p...

Re: EFI for small industrial engine--aircraft use

This is very interesting and I definitely have some comments and thoughts for you, but I'm behind on hours at work, and tonight I have to keep busy. Approved and in public so the few other people that still lurk here can see it and respond if they so desire :-) I'll be back, hasta la vista, o hasta ...
