How much difference will this make to a valver with a filter, de-cat and stainless??

Also, if I bought a chipped @Williams@ ECU, could my Phase 2 valver run this without any problems??

im sure the ph2's have imobilizers in the ecu so if you change it you need to remove all the alarm ect

I recently run the ECU out of the Ph 1, which has no immobiliser, it run fine.

I take it you mean Ignition timing?

Ignition can make quite a bit off difference if you do it right. Moving the CPS wont really hack it. Also if your fitting a chip, you dont know what extra advance thats running, so any manual advance could easily cause det.

I wasn't going to touch the CPS Stan, I was going to do it direct from the dizzy.

Advance it a touch, take it for a spin, advance it further, go for another spin etc etc. Until I hear detting under load, then knock it back a touch. Will this be ok? Or is there another method recommended for home tuning?

TBH theres so much dwell on the dizzy due to the size of the rotor arm contact, you wont achieve much advance.

as for advancing till you hear det....hear with what, your naked ear?! i wouldnt...if you heard it over an engine whilst bombing down the road at full chat, its likely going to be too late! anyhting audiable at that state i going to be quite severe.

We will see, we will see :lol:

I mean, you have cams and a chip in that too, so that's my handicap.

Early doors is good with me, will have to see if Nath is painting first. If he is, we will have to do sunday.

1. Assistants ALWAYS play an active roll (like taking rear seats out :wink: )

2. Chippie down the road, no bother

3. Key 103 ok for you?

4. Kettle is always on boil. I cannot confirm designated smoking areas, although away from the paint cupboard, lol
