  2. Base tune issues d16y8 turbo

    Engine Management
    you, as of right now, should not be going anywhere near 5k rpm. 17 is LEAN. As for someone giving you a base map, i wouldnt suggest that. everyone's setup's are different. just because his runs fine doesnt mean yours will. What i suggest is that you take it easy with the car OR if you can...
  3. not hitting full boost?

    Engine Management
    alright, so quite an interesting finding here. So this is my third solenoid that ive put in the car. The first one died on me completely and it was running around 74-75% duty cycle when under boost at 23psi. The second one i had, which was the one i just replaced, was around 70% at the same...
  4. not hitting full boost?

    we'll see what happens, he told me there's only a handful of reasons why it could be doing this so hopefully we get the the bottom of this :)

  6. not hitting full boost?

    Engine Management
    so what i ended up doing is running BOTH the bottom and top port directly from the turbo. I set a boost cut somewhere around 18psi and sure enough my boost was able to reach 16 no problem before i let off to prevent it from hitting the boost cut.. so this definitely means something's wrong with...
  7. not hitting full boost?

    Engine Management
    i have not, how would i go about doing that?? i remember my tuner pinching one of the vacuum lines to the wastegate at the very beginning of my tuning session once.
  8. not hitting full boost?

    Engine Management
    also, might be worth mentioning, when i put my car into accessory mode and the fuel pump primes, i can also hear a loud click from the solenoid. Is that normal? ive never really noticed it doing that in the past before..
  9. not hitting full boost?

    Engine Management
    it feels a bit different, 3rd gear is by far the most noticeable.. it just feels like the car's making half of what its supposed to. ive already checked my external wastegate! Ive tried cleaning it out as much as possible with a bit of brake cleaner for the carbon build up and still nothing. The...
  10. not hitting full boost?

    Engine Management
    hey everyone, so basically a couple days ago i got my car tuned on 23psi. car was running nice until i noticed it wouldnt boost past 13 anymore. - what ive done so far is replace my boost controller, i have a new AEM boost solenoid now. - checked voltage to controller, full 12v are being...

    Transmission alley
    its on a d16z6, 98 acura el i was driving it around the past couple days and id hear a clunk sound after going in reverse or going from a stop from the passenger side but i always thought it'd be my axle. so i changed it and thats when i noticed this mess lol.. lucky for me ive sourced out...
  12. differencial loose?

    Transmission alley
    hey guys, so today i decided to replace the passenger side CV shaft and while doing so i noticed that when i looked into the hole in the tranny, i noticed that the gear that hooks up with my axle didnt quite seem lined up.. i stuck my finger in there to see if i could move it around and sure...

    Forced Induction
    So I pulled the head off a couple days ago and no cracks! Walls are good and head is good aswell! I put the new gasket in and closed everything up. When I went to start it again however the rpm’a Shot up to 4K and an unbelievable amount of coolant came puffing out of the car. I took the engine...

    I know ive been making a lot of threads but i guess that just shows how many problems my car has :frown: So ive done a bit of research looking around for a similar problem to mine however i cant find one that matches my situation exactly.. Before i begin id like to say that ive already tried...
  18. Sound coming from engine

    General Tech
    OK so a little update everybody, Two days ago I did an oil change on the car and decided to put some thicker oil right after I pulled the pan (might as well right?). I ended up putting 15w-50. Car still running great however the sound is still there.. it definitely sounds like it’s coming...
  19. Building d16z6 turbo

    General Tech
    Pistons, rods, head studs and bearings will be a must and as someone mentioned before, a block guard wouldn’t hurt either(even though you should be good without one for that power goal). As for head work, the stock head should hold up alright BUT some of it comes down to how much power you can...
  20. Sound coming from engine

    General Tech
    UPFATE: Ok so I pulled the pan today as well as inspecting the oil.. nothing in the oil except for a few small bubbles that I at first mistook to be metal shavings. As for the rods itself, I tried pulling on all of them to see if there was any play, no up and down play whatsoever. There is some...
