General Discussion / What are they trying to say?
« Last post by GTRS Fiero on Today at 07:20:58 PM »
My sisters brought me pigs in a blanket.  My dad gave me a flying pig.  My mother called my room a pig-sty.  My brother-in-law told me I could have roast pig Sunday.  Now, say what you will about my eating, I think a whole pig is an exaggeration.

Tonight, my wife fixed a few racks of BBQ ribs, some sort of macaroni salad, and that was it.  I was full after 17 ribs and 2 helpings of the noodle salad.  See?  Just a bit of pig.  No back straps, no bacon, no haunches, no legs, etc.

Thinking of flying pigs, isn't it about time TopNotch posts the latest news from space?  Nothing for the last month.  My college buddy says that, at the rate we're going, the extraterrestrials won't stop here, as ”no sign of intelligent life”.  After watching some shows like Last Man on Earth, McLeod's Daughters, Galactica, and Worst Week, I'm inclined to agree.

Well, I tried to answer the questions I had, and then share them.  I am still curious about lighting brightness and distance comparisons.  I'd also like to compare to LED bulbs.  There seems to be a lot of ”looks brighter to me” info.  I don't have any way to test lumens, but I have a laser measure.

Thanks.  I just did a search for 'elbow' and found the thread where you gave the details of the high knock counts and how you installed the sensor on the 2.8.

Are you ready to do installations for others?  Got any prices in mind?  Of course, there will need to be variables depending upon how much your customer provides for the conversion.

I did use a knock sensor, but found it unnecessary for a factory setup. However, when I went to 3.4, bored, shaved heads, dawg intake, ported, polished, 1.6 rollers, THEN i found it needed

Hey, Ron.  I've been talking with a guy out in OK that's doing the 7730 and he told me you said you didn't use a knock sensor on your 2.8 when you did the 7730.  I thought i remembered that you put it into a 90 degree fitting to eliminate the high knock count.  Is that correct?

Different ecu's handle the calc and inputs a little different, along with different masks that command differing calc commands. For tbi (single injector) or batch fire injection, such as crank triggered dis (7x), the 7730 is superb. If you're looking at more resolution, such as 24x cam triggering for multi point sequential injection, other ecm choices might be better.
Any ecm will suffer from a poor tune. If the fueling is off, that puts more work on the ecm processor and the effect is lots of calculating and sluggish performance.

Just an update about correct nv ratios:
No, it wasn't my imagination about the motor handling different. Not only shift light, but also spark advance is ramped up at differing rates, based on what gear the calculation is for and throttle change rate.  It's so complicated that it's voodoo. 
It's labeled as rpm derivative spark in $88 and $A1.
If you're a perfectionist like me and want to squeeze every ounce of performance out of your tune, calculate and enter the correct nv ratios for your rig!

F85gtron's thread is very helpful.  I certainly read his thread several times.
