    Cracking read Isaac. Really good to have a proper objective review. I know the march that way is inexorable, and there is a certain rose-tinted view of ICE, especially for petrolheads. We should probably have one ourselves, but the main barrier is the initial outlay required. Your review has given us food for thought (I've been boring Amy senseless, er, I mean, discussing the finer points of your lengthy tome with her!), especially with you saying you were surprised to find it within...

    a narrow band will constantly switch from rich to lean about the stoic point when the car is running normally. if you artificially create a vacuum leak at idle the narrow band will show lean constantly and the long term and short term fuel trims will come into play and gradually add more and more fuel to bring the AFR back to stoic even with the leek. as the fuel trims do there thing and adjust the fueling the narrow band out will show you the output going from constant max lean back towards...

    Ok all, so i have finished panting the parts, i wish i had not started paining anything other than the block. because anything factory finish i put up against the painted parts just looks a bit crap and unfinished. i have to stop some where and i draw the line at bolts. these do not need to be painted or finished or polished. that would be insane on any car other than a show car and this car is no show car it is a daily driver and i must keep that in mind otherwise it turn into a project that...

    I had to Heli coil one of my plenum to inlet manifold connection. It is very easy to do, you just have to be careful with what you are doing especially when you snap off the screw in tang. Sent from my MI 5s using Tapatalk

    So from an electrical point of view the injectors being triggered correctly if you can see the pulsing. But it does not mean the injectors are actually opening and closing. This opening and closing is quite loud with a sharp tick tick tick as they are firing. So you can get a screw driver and put it on the top of each injector and put you ear to the screwdriver handle and listen to the injector fire. Sorry this would have probably been an easier thing to do than measure all the voltages. But...

    Did you open up the outlet holes in the stock manifolds at all they are very small. I was thinking it might help the exhaust flow. There is quite a lot of metal that could be removed to make the hole bigger. Sent from my MI 5s using Tapatalk

    I think TPS should be 96% wot and 7% closed. If you have removed the plenum recently and the issues started after you refitted. It is very easy to trap a wire under the plenum and cause a vacuum leak. I two different methods to leak check a vr4 inlet pipework. 1. Use a smoke machine. Attach it to brake booster nlet on back of plenum and pump smoke in and see where it comes out. 2. Pressure test the inlet pipework, but only from the out put of the turbo compressor exit after the Y...

    There's a set of codes in this post: https://www.clubvr4.com/forum/showthread.php?22930-diagnostic-codes-complete-set You only need to short pins 1 and 4 on the OBD-II connector near the driver's knee, using a short piece of wire or a paperclip.

    From the factory I think there is a waxy paper plug on top of the cross head screw. If it has never been adjusted in the past. But I have tried to adjust the bist screw on an old vr4 of mine and it turned to dust and had to be picked/dug out with a small fine screwdriver . You then have to buy a new one and realise that the screw is made out of some kind of 1940's wonder material bakolite. Which turns to dust on its 7th birthday.

    RXWPN Hi justin, what manifolds are you using for this setup. complete custom, modified originals or complete standard originals? i remember this thread you did. not much detail from the pipe on the exact pipework. i believe the exhaust manifold output ran under the car and joined at the front by the turbo and then the exhaust downpipe whet back under the car to the normal exhaust location. how is the tuning going on it did you reach your targets? am i right in thinking you converted you...

    well that idle is not normal. 650 rpm at idle in neutral 600rpm in D and the rpm rises when the A/C is turned on to combat the additional load put on the engine when the a?C compressor starts up. i don't think you should be worried about the AFR's you should sort out the Idle first. what are you doing to artificially raise the idle? are you just tightening the throttle cable?

    You can currently get Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 tyres for £70 a corner. I keep thinking about getting a set of four until they're needed! That's based on 225/45R17 though. It looks like Kumho only do PS91s in 18" to 20" though - are your wheels 18" or more? Mid-range, you will get a few votes from owners for Falkens. Then there's the original fitment Bridgestones... Difficult to say from the reviews though. Tyres can be about as subjective as oil choices! For goodness sake...
