Re: Ford Festiva / Protege / Miata motor (#3)

So we got thru the New Hampshire race with some minor issues: Broke a clutch cable --- 20 minute fix lost 2 bolts on a motor mount, which caused us to eat a v-belt, ended our day an hour early... A car no fire on our first pitstop, car came in fine, fueled it and it wouldn't stay running, would star...

Re: Ford Festiva / Protege / Miata motor (#3)

Ok folks, this Saturday is the big day...We are taking the car to the dyno! We have done a bunch of learning driving up and down the driveway and made a ton of progress and learned a lot to this point...Including making sure the upper intake gasket is sealed properly (set us back two weeks)... So, w...

Quick update...we have the new motor in the car and running on both stock computer and rusEFI, we need to button up a few things under the hood before we start tuning, however we have added a couple of gauges to make tuning easier, one of which is a wideband O2 sensor...dyno session after the new ye...

Well, I wouldn't say prolonged running, but we did 20+ pulls on the dyno on the Saturday without any issues and the system was running the entire time....Now it was about 50-60 degrees in the shop so it wasn't like it was race conditions in May @ NJMP...

Re: Ford Festiva / Protege / Miata motor (#3)

Yeah, we did a pull on the OEM ECU and video recorded the timing gun on the car, then did the same with rusEFI and used that to see that we needed more timing on the upper end of the pull...after the adjustments we were really close to what the OEM was doing regarding timing advance...

Not 100% sure yet, we tried throwing additional fuel and additional timing at the motor and it improved some with fuel, no real measurable improvement with additional timing.
