Spud electric lean out volume
« on: August 20, 2018, 02:09:20 PM »
Spud,
 Have a question about your eletric hi psd lean out.How  much fuel will it by pass. I am wanting to incorporate it into system to bypass fuel when on 2 step using SLE. I know lots og guys are on 2 step w/mfi wideopen and don't have issue. I don't like it and basically not going to run my car that way. Looking to bypass decent amount of fuel eventually,going to start small and creep up. Was going to buy oe anyway so if could do dbl duty great.

 Most people using it for that purpose run a 70 or 75 pill in it.

 If you leave the pill out of it, I'm sure it'll flow MORE than enough to do the job  ;)

Am I wrong in thinking it is not needed for the short time it is on the two step? Two things, even though the barrel valve is open the limiter limits the RPM so the pump is limited to. Also with an SLE the throttle is not wide open while it is activated?  So I am thinking it may just make it harder to tune and add another issue into the mix?

On my car (Your mileage may vary) when I go on the two step wide open it has always come off clean and hard.

 If you aren't having an issue (slow 60's), then I'd say no need to throw parts at it. Keeping it simple is a good thing.

 If your 60' sucks and you see your EGT's are taking a big dip while staged, then the valve is a great solution.
