Mine is 96 and it has a different crank sensor part number than yours 99. I will check that out when I start wiring this thing up. Yesterday I got my Blow off valve, boost gauge and some other stuff. Still waiting for a new intercooler (one I had was too big), and some hoses and clamps. What turbo are you running? I got a .50 .63 hybrid from ebay (I hope it spools up lol...) and I was also worried about the tune, how much timing retard do you run per psi of boost? I was thinking like -1 or -1.25 per psi. In your case I see its really cold out there! But I live in Puerto Rico where it can get really hot so I have to worry about detonation... At what voltage did you clamp the MAF on the AEM FIC? Thanks a lot and sorry for askin so much lol!
my turbo is a CXRacing T28 .42 .49 ( cxracing.com: T28 Turbo Turbocharger + Water Banjo Prelude Integra Civic Miata Audi
i think your turbo is way too big. it depend on the turbo model. a t25/t28 .64 will spool faster than a t3t4 .63... the first turbo i ordered for my accent was a t04e ( t3t4 ) .50 .63 and wouldnt hit the first bit of boost ( 1 psi ) before 6k rpm which is our cutoff ( hmm... our cutoff is at 6.3k rpm but tranny change speed at 6k rpm ). i tried a t25 .63 and got 1 psi of boost at 4k rpm,
with my t28 .42/.49 i hit full boost ( 10 psi ) around 4k rpm which is PERFECT for street use.
for your ebay turbo , i have to tell you something... i am familiar with ebay turbo as i worked alot with them. people saying they are crap just don't know what they are talking about. its not garrett , but they are decent.
99% of ebay turbo are chinacharger. only CXRacing are USA made cheap turbo. but once again chinacharger are decent... you may have to rebuild it soon ( before 20 000km ) with garrett parts and you end up with a QUALITY turbo for less than 400$ while other people pay like 1200$+.
back in 2002 ebay turbo was real crap the housing was cracking but since 2006 the housing is decent. china evolve like everyone !
my timing is at -1 per psi of boost actually but i just created the basemap anddidnt touched it. its hard to tune properly when it only spin on snow lol.
my maf is clamped at 4.7v but this is a general rules... some car need to be clamped at 4.3v and i think 4.7 is too high. i need to wait till there no more snow on the road to be sure.
its a pleasure to help you bro !
we have the same car and im more advanced in the work than you so its normal to help you.
i don't know if you plan to put low profile tire on it but if you do in 17inch watch out for this
if you have other question i'm still around
