    Nick Mann replied to a thread Common tuning FAQ in ECUs / Mapping
    9510 was completed in the third week of October 1996, 10354 was the first week of November. Certainly quite close in birthdays! I'd agree with Tim. If the ECU for 9510 has been played with, it might be very specific for that car and it's supporting mods. To be safe you'd want to be measuring boost levels and air/fuel ratios if you swap it to 10354.

    https://www.clubvr4.com/forum/content.php?177-Reading-the-VR-4-s-Diagnostic-Codes-The-Flashy-Dash-Technique Very few code readers work properly on the VR4. Almost none. The only thing I trust for diagnostic codes is the flashy dash technique.

    Nick Mann replied to a thread Ayc light in Drive Train
    No! The green lights should stop working when the red light comes on. The red light indicates a fault with the system - the system then stops shifting power around so no green lights. The red light should have no link to the temperature of the engine either, other than the system can sometimes stop working due to the pump being tired and warm oil not pressurising so easily. However the timing of the red light and the engine temp should be nothing more than coincidental. Have you tried...

    10 years ago a bespoke stainless cat back was cheaper than the dealer part from Mitsubishi. I'm out of touch with current prices though.

    I suspect there is a system glitch! It was flagged up to the admin guys by another moderator before I got here, so hopefully sorted soon.

    2nd column third row was exported. However in the background you can see a certain Fridge that is still alive. Quite amusing that the only car I know is still on the road there is not a VR4!

    Not sure where you got 7g from Dave? But yes, changing FWD to 4WD is tricky due to floor changes. I'd also like to disagree with the MPG. Very few owners get 25mpg round town. Most of us get more like 18mpg. Some in the past have quoted 15/16mpg. I'd say expect 16 and be happy with any extra.

    It's a tricky question to be honest. Trying to find a specialist that knows a car so rare is not easy! Spongy brakes could be as simple as old fluid or old flexi pipes. If the hard pipes are heavily corroded to the point they are affecting performance then they will be leaking and your brakes will stop working quickly. Speedo could be as simple as a kph/mph converter. The alarm fault is only an insurance worry if the car still works.

    standard car round town 20-25mpg motorway driving 25-32mpg are you considering creating a VR2 (front wheel drive with VR4 engine) on a 7G platform. it has been doe before. if you are thinking of doing 4wd 7G you will struggle as the 7G chassis does not have the transmission tunnel for the propshaft that goes to the rear of the car to the rear differential. lots of metalwork required.

    I am going to release a COP conversion kit soon. it is a completely plug and play kit, no wiring, no metal work making brackets, no looking for screws, washer, spacers, or anything else for that matter. i can even supply the coil packs. watch the forum for updates on this and it will be sold for as cheap as possible to make it affordable for all, to keep these cars on the road.

    thanks for the info Tomasz, i am using the honda coil and that is working great with out dwell modification. i have been running it for a long time, i just wanted to be able to tune the dwell if i even needed to. Is there a possibility the reduction factor table is actually and offset table 100 being 1ms and 96 being 0.96ms, 0 being oms offset. This would account for the 1ms offset when you measure the dwell with a scope and when you look at the requested dwell time. the reason why i...

    Coil Settings 2 = Coil dwell time this is simple it is the required dwell time at a given battery voltage. Coil Settings 3 = Dwell Time Reduction Factor as merlin described it "the third table is the Reduction Factor, reducing the values in this table will result in more Dwell Time at redline". Most COP coil on plug setups can be run with this table set to zero i.e. no Dwell reduction. this means the standard value of 96 means the dwell time will be reduced by 96%, reducing this...
