IDI Engine / Re: How much does winterr impact on fuel economy
« on: December 10, 2018, 06:48:42 pm »
ive kept my trip meter going since I bought my chevy cruze diesel a year ago. last winter I was averaging 5.7l/100km, the summer it dropped to 5.5l/100km with my average tank in the summer being mostly around 5.2l/100km. Not a huge difference but give or take 10%. I should also mention I don't warm my car up before I drive it. working some night shifts in the winter I would sit and idle to warm up so that is a factor as well. not for hours but 10-20min a few times over a tank of idle was usually enough to ruin a good tanks mpg

IDI Engine / Re: Adjusting the boost and fuel on aaz, Ko3
« on: November 11, 2018, 05:03:30 am »
Spoke that nipple on the top the injection pump is the lda. It's meant to control smoke when off of boost. It basically acts as a second throttle lever that adds more fuel when boost kicks in then lessens fuel when off boat to reduce smoke. If you have the hose disconnected then you arnt getting extra fuel when on boost. Connect it back up. I'd try and find a pin from a 1.6td to replace with the aaz one as its junk and doesnt add much fuel. Im pretty sure i have one I can give you. Pm me if interested.

As for controlling boost just leave the wastegate alone on the turbo and buy a cheap manual boost controller. Adding boost/fuel before its fully broken in isnt going to hurt it really, especially with the limitations of the k03. I think the k03 is good for like 15 psi. I'd set it to that, install a 1.6td boost pin, do a governor mod on the pump and then turn your fuel screw in as far as you can while keeping egt under control. You wont kill the sammi tranny at that point but itll give you a nice bump in performance and be just as reliable as the level you are running it at now

The max fuel screw increases all fueling in the pump. The lda is what allows you to take advantage of the majority of that excess fuel. My truck has a massive performance hit with that hose disconnected,  but i have a giles pump and a super aggressive pin

The 1.6td pin will work fine for you. Like you said its adjustable and you can play with it..

Read the how to make power sticky in the faq section. Basically you want to find a balance between the max fuel screw, the lda, egt and desired smoke level. The max fuel screw will kind of give you your top end and smoke at full throttle/boost, while the lda pin is what will let you control how soon the fuel kicks in and how aggressively and is how you adjust your power curve. How much boost the turbo can make is determined by fuel. More Fuel = turbo spinning faster.

How much boost can stock internals handle? I just took my taco with a freshly rebuilt aaz with arp head and main studs and its making 34psi with my holset he221w. The thing flies but I think this might be a bit much for it? I'm upgrading to an alh in the near future but I need to sell this without a hole in the block 😂

Looking for a oem k03 that's in good shape and hasn't been abused its entire life. Building a compound alh with my he221w for my Tacoma. If anyone has one they don't want an arm and a leg for feel free to pm me!

IDI Engine / Re: Pump fuel screw......what setting is oem?
« on: September 19, 2018, 08:58:18 pm »
when I had a cap on my golf I was still able to turn the screw in enough to cause an erratic idle, black smoke and a noticeable jump in power. I don't think the safety cap is necessarily the factory point or else I wouldn't have been able to turn mine any.

Why so obsessed with getting it to exactly factory spec? do you have an egt gauge? id just turn it to where you have a steady idle and no smoke if you arnt looking for a performance bump.

Doesnt look like its been asked. Have the rods been inspected for straightness?

IDI Engine / Re: oil pressure switch
« on: September 09, 2018, 11:31:40 pm »
Damn looks like the higher psi sensors are normally open. 3psi it is i guess. I'll at least put it in the head so it'll give more of a warning then 3psi at the filter flange.

IDI Engine / oil pressure switch
« on: September 09, 2018, 03:56:22 pm »
Hey guys. I'm looking to install a oil pressure switch so I have some kind of warning in my Tacoma swap. Theres not a lot of room to mount aftermarket gauges so I'd rather just run the light for now. The cluster light turns on with ground and off without ground so I need a sensor that grounds at low pressure then opens the circuit at pressure. Is this how the stock sensors run? Also what kind of pressure should be running at the filter flange? I know theres a bunch of different psi rating switches available. Id rather one a bit higher to get an earlier warning of a developing issue then the 3psi one. Is 13psi likely to trip at idle on the filter flange on a healthy engine? Its been a while since I monitored pressures but from what I remember filter flange at idle should be around 20psi and the head is about 10psi which should make 13psi a decent size for the light?

sounds like he wants a t25 manifold to mount a holset with a bottom outlet like that pic

Search for 8v manifolds on eBay. There's ones that go straight out and ones that go "up" but you could pretty easily flip it and have the mount facing down

Lol all good man. Thanks for looking. I'll hook it up with a zapstrap until i can find a proper cable end

actually I just found this. you can see in his engine bay the kind of cable I have. looks almost like you hold the cable above the ball and then snap something down into it

heres a video showing it better

Sorry for the large pic imgur wont let me resize them anymore for whatever reason. I know what you are describing its what my old cable was like. the new one I pulled from a jetta aaz (1994 I believe) has a rectangular tip with a rectangular hole in it. I'm thinking there was some kind of rubber bushing or something that snapped onto the ball and then this cable snapped ontop of it. Before today I had never seen this style and I cant even find anything online that looks like it.

heres the link to the pic ill remove it from the original post so its not stupidly large

if you find one id love to buy it! I only really need the locking cap and maybe 6" of the steel hose with the black plastic part

« on: August 19, 2018, 08:17:14 pm »
how do I make this work? I had the older style cable with the black rectangle thingy and the metal collar that slides over and locked it into place but I cant find it. Went to pickapart today and this was the only cable I could find. unfortunately the ip and whatever this piece slides onto was missing. Anyone know what im looking for or where to find it? or would anyone have a few inches of the cable with the locking part (gotta hack 2 cables together and just need the portion to attach it to the throttle arm).

Anyone have a cad file of a block girdle? Have a friend with a cc, wouldnt mind getting him to cut me one out if anyone has a design they'd care to share?
