I installed a extra "5th injector" In the intercooler pipe, just in front of, and aimed right at the throttlebody. A pressure switch from NAPA was installedto turn the injector on at about 13 psi, alongwith a light on the dash to let me know it is on. Kind of neat, punch it,and at anything over 13 psi, you get a warning light on the dash. Click herefor a link to the Hobbs pressure switch I used.
With the Mitsubishi turbo, when I completely disconnectedthehose fromthe waste gate, I could get a good solid 16 psi of boost. Ineededmoreboost, So I have installed the Larger Enforcer 2 turbo. It spoolsup slowerthanthe mitsu turbo, but last year I could only run a 14.3 at 16to 17psi of boost,and now with the larger turbo, I run a 14.2 with only13psi of boost.
The larger turbo, combined with the larger injectors causea littlestumble at tip in, really slowing the turbo spool up time. I am workingon my launches, and it appears that I get my best times leaving the lineatabout 1/4 throttle, and slowly tipping the throttle in till it is floored.
I installed a solenoid valve in line with the Grainger valve. With the valve open, is allows full pressure to reach the waste gate. With the valve closed, no pressure reached the waste gate, and must insteadpass through the grainger valve, which controls how much pressure reachedthe waste gate. I mounted a push button on the shifter, and hookeditto the solenoid valve, and another light on the dash, so I can tellit ison.With the valve open, The boost stops at about 7 psi forsmooth launcheswith little wheel spin, then, I push the button on theshifter, and boostkicksup, the injector kicks in, and the dash lookslike a christmas tree!
8/6/99: I ordered a intercooler from a 1999Ford Power Stroke Diesel engine. It will be in next week. Itestedmy T2 cooler and it is loosing about 3 psi of boost. This coolershould have almost no restriction. It is part number F81Z-6K775-BA,list $295, paid $235 plus tax ($250). I will let everyone know ifithelps!
1/22/00 I have bought the Enforcer 2 turbo fromForwardMotion, along with the under drive pulley and ported exhaust manifold. I will be installing them soon in hopes of some real performance gains. Right now the van is stuck in a snowdrift........ and it has been below zero too much.
Feel like I am running out of fuel, Installed a custom computer, custom 75# fuel injectors, and a 3 bar map sensor for HIGH boost (28 psi) Also installed a EGT gauge to see if I was running lean. installed a full 3 inch down pipe off the turbo.
