Re: Do I have a problem?

All I can think of is when the clutch is disengaged and I rev the engine it creates a vacuum in the servo that applies the brakes. But how could this happen? It couldnt. And most vacuum is generated on the overrun, or idle, or cruise, etc etc. Not blipping the throttle. I really dont think driving ...

Re: Remote oil filter

Thx for the heads up Chris. I’ll check this out and find out what connections go where. Undoubtably I’ve got them wrong and will have to make up some new pipes but better that than blowing my new engine The housings are actually available that appear the same, but are opposites so you wouldnt need ...

Re: HELP - FIRST CRANK - NO OIL PRESSURE

Keep it simple. If you have a remote filter....undo the hose going into the filter ( which should feed the outside of the filter ) and spin the engine over for say 30s. I you get no oil flow from it ( there should be a lot ), pour oil down the pipe to try and prime the pump. Then let it all soak do...

Re: How many amps?

If none exists, perhaps a clamp meter would give an idea. But difficult to use with the car in use. Easy enough ( maybe a little messy though depending on access )...just route the main alternator cable somewhere accessible so you can access it and also view the meter. Or easier still Clamp meter f...

Re: How many amps?

In the GT Idling on a hot evening, lights on, radiator fans running, ecu, low pressure pump, high pressure pump, cockpit fresh air fan, and twin 4 amp fans blowing air through engine bay, volt meter dropped to less than 10v. When driving again it took a while for the volt meter to get to its normal...

Re: How many amps?

Was just trying to get a guestimate of how long the car has to run to fully charge the battery. In these days of it not getting used much. I do have a hefty mains charger which claims 15 amp output max, but the volts from that never go above about 14v when charging a low battery. Don't have a DC cl...

Re: Clutch Slip - Helix

drill a small hole for a bore scope type camera.

And if the parts supplied were wrong...ie say a disc too thin for the cover, it would slip very easily.

AP used to get that wrong on a lot of their kits for some bizarre reason on a lot of cars.

Re: How many amps?

Assuming a good battery and the only load the engine electrics, how many amps is the alternator chucking into the battery at 14.4v? Trying to guess how long it would stay that high before reducing as the battery charges up. Stick a clamp meter and find out ? But I doubt it would be very much ? But ...

I think maybe the bike turbo people are pushing the limits more than the car people. I agree FI from the factory is very reliable,on a un modified engine,
IMO, any issues are from poor install, choosing poor parts, or poor tuning.

It has nothing to do with bikes or cars.
