Cool !

Mina, please make sure you get it trailored/towed and tuned before ever driving it on those injectors. You don't want the fuel to wash your cylinder walls and damage your bottom end...

I know you've had hard times with your car before... this is just a heads up because i know you've been driving that thing for a while with all sorts of troubles...

so make sure you don't drive it before getting it retuned.

never heard of that term before... can you explain what you mean by it?

what was wrong with the wheels you bought? I might be interested in them

using very large injectors with no fuel correction on a stock ECU is a big deal. The excess fuel will actually wash the oil off the cylinder walls ... the pistons will no longer slide on the wall. The fuel will get into the oil pan and dilute the oil ...

550 cc injectors instead of the stock 360cc injectors on a vr4 caused this failure:


That's what i'm talking about ... going from 550s to 800s is a similar huge jump so i'm giving a warning not to drive it before it gets retuned for the larger injectors

Wow nuke, that's crazy. And I thought my spun rod bearing was messy!

i didnt change my wheels, i got tires... the tires i have dont grip at all... they just spin...

as for the injector change, thanks for the heads up... i got a standalone ,sds efi, with a programer device thats always connected, so i can just tune down the fuel...can i just start the car on those injectors or do i have to retune everything before i turn the ignition.

At least add a correction factor to the idle to get it running. It's pretty easy to do that with your ems though. I'm glad you put a little thought into your braking system.

the thing with my braking system is that i wanted gt-4 brakes, i got these because my current rotors are fucked, and i needed new pads, and at 150 , it didnt seem to be a big loss... i didnt want to spend allot of money on my current brakes then switch them to gt-4. iam also thinking about the eibach pro-kit, a nice 1' drop is not gonna hurt, and struts...

Hmm mina you should have figured those tires wouldn't grip shit. come on you got all 4 for 80$? You get what you pay for. have you fixed that big ass dent on your car?

Nuke, Holy SHIT! I've never seen any thing like that. Thats fuckin nuts! How much did that cost you ? :hehe:

it wasn't my car

my car was running stock fuel pretty much ... 10% larger injectors and a fuel pump hotwire. Should've brought my IDC down from ~ 105% to 90%.... put in about 3* more timing in it. ..and the ECU still was able to run in closed loop

vr4 ecu's are smart and VERY aggressive (40* of timing at WOT if there's no knock)

The guy that did that lost 2 motors before he realised that the 'performance' shop that told him he could run 550s with no piggy back was full of it.

the tired i have were 70 each.... i didnt know about drag radials back then.... and i got them before the swap, so i didnt know how bad i needed better tires until i realized that the car looses traction in 3rd gear.... the 80 dollar ones are in my backyard, i have yet to use them...
