The only reading I can get outta the boost gauge is right under 5-6 pounds and then the car just gets stuck at 4500 rpm and almost sounds like an anti lag that just doesn't stop. After I get off the gas you can hear everything escape through the BOVYou have a “dumb” ECU that can only respond to discreet inputs (MAP) so I seriously doubt it’s the issue. I would double check the hot side for manifold/turbo housing cracks and the cold side for boost leaks/vacuum leaks. I would check the compression and timing as well. I hope you at least have a boost gauge, what does it read at WOT?
Gonna get a wide band on there ASAP just tryna find another turbo down pipe that has a bung welded on. However the car seems to be running rich. Which I assumed when I was changing the gaps on my plugs.It doesn't sound like he's got a wideband.... hoping for plug and play turbo with no boom
No the ecu doesn't have any sort of controller output and I believe I'm on a 3bar MAP sensor. I tried a Hondata 4bar MAP sensor and the car didn't even want to idle, the car shut off immediately.Are you on a STOCK honda MAP sensor?
It is only good to around 10psi.
Very possible it is going bad. Watch MAP sensor votlage if you have a way. Does the edelbrock ecu piggyback offer ANY sort of controller or output screen?
I honestly did not know edelbrock even HAD a piggyback.
DOUBLE CHECK for its existance
No, we thought the 4 bar would make a difference we switched it back to the stock one after we didnt get it to start or even cruise. Also there was a hose connected to that vacuum line.Was there a vacuum hose attached to that nipple near the electrical plug?
ANd yes, piggyback means stock MAP sensor. No if's and's or but's
If there was no hose to that nipple, the edelbrock unit does NOT see boost and does NOT know to add fuel and pull timing.
After I put the stock map sensor back on the car ran perfectly fine and even trying to roll into it, the car still did the same thing got to 4-5k and just fell on its face. I had done pretty much all I could think of including re-locating my o2 sensor, doing a new IAT sensor, retarded timing 1° for every 1 psi of boost I was running and re-gapped my spark plugs. Nothing changed in the way the car was performing. Beginning to think the actual edelbrock ecu is junk since it is really old. Thinking of switching to a p28 w/ s300 to get more in depth details about the car and better tuning abilities. Need to get a AEM AFR ASAP though.I would highly recommend emailing edelbrock, and asking for the manual in PDF format for that unit.
You will need to know any and all identifying information the casing provides, as this is quite old.
You may have to use the wayback machine website to find 10+ year old information on it.
