    Toyota 5 speed gearbox related question

    Depending on what he wants from the engine a nice 18r single cam carb might be a solid option too. A bit easier to get and with a reground cam and a weber 32/36. Become really quite a great and simple engine.

    DIY Fuel injection thread.

    megasquirt 1 (2.2) question. on my old engine i had the radiator fan handled by the ecu no problem, but ever since i switched to the twincam it hadnt worked, (it may just be that this is when i first noticed too) i had it setup to trigger a relay from the (-) side of LED18. but now when ever i hook up the relay to it it turns the LED off, if it was on. the ecu software is functioning properly switching the output on and off ect. i measured voltage at that neg pin and its ~2.5v when the led is off and ~5v when the led is on. it never seems to switch to ground like i thought it was meant to. any ideas whats going on here? maybe i fired the transistor somehow.

    Job offer . Excavator operator chch.

    what company do you work for/own (if you do) would be good to add another company to the calling card for sometimes quite short notice work, centered around installing test sections of roadside barriers, but moreso the earthworks related to that. /thread hijack

    18R Engine - Belt or Chain Driven?

    can also confirm chain driven. have rebuilt an 18r, and also currently running an 18rg which is also chain.

    For Questions Regarding WOFs/CERTs/NUMBER PLATEs

    Yeah figured as much re. The brake cable. It's not much of a major to get the cable on the outside. 1 step closer 2 steps back ect ect

    So turns out megasquirt can rescale the map if you decide you want to move the bin divisions around! i never noticed this button and once youve made your changes seems to work great! will have to figure out how i want it layed out now. currently its all just even. and as you can see above. runs all the way out to 8000! as if my engine is gonna pull that. id put off rescaling it cause i thought it would be a massive manual task. any suggestions for how the map (y) axis should be arranged? supercharged engine which will run out to 0.5 bar eventually

    Here's a question. Your comment on cell devisions reminded me that I had originally set up all the devisions square, and like you say now I'd prefer to have them tailors a bit more. Is there a way to change the divisions that also moves your current map around, or is it a case of having to do it all manually and somewhat re tune?

    I mean come on.. Ring lands blow because the engine is running too much boost for the ring gap. The rings expand due to the extra heat, the gap closes up and the ring has nowhere to go but up, therefor breaking the piston. My car is only on 3psi of boost untill I take the engine appart to specifically open the ring gap for this exact reason. I'm guessing your mate chucked 15-20 psi at an otherwise stock motor? Mx5 engines are pretty stout and will take that, but I'd always be looking at opening the ring gap for boost

    What was the actual failure? Because anyone could program any ecu, or build an engine with an error and cause a failure.
