More EFI details
So, I found the bad output from the ECU. So, I decided to create a new harness for the EFI with the ability to easily go back to 2 outputs and for now it's wired to one output.
So, I used new EV-1 connectors from DIYAUTOTUNE.com, and their labeled wires. (I like using color coded wires and these have printed labels on the wires. One is INJ-1 and other is INJ-2.) If someone else has to debug, this will make it easier to understand. (When I do wiring, I create strong mechanical connection first, usually by crimping, then I solder the joint to insure a good electrical connection. Call me anal. )
So, here's the schematic, and it's quite simple. Just wanted complete documentation, as this is one of many pages of the schematics needed to get the C230 motor to work. And finally a picture of the harness as it is today. I need to do some work on it by adding a sheath, but this photo you can see the wiring easily.
I spent quite a bit of time today getting the idle smooth, and the off idle settings correct. It idles very nice right now, and I still need to drive it around and work on those settings. Yesterday, I used the autotune feature of tunerstudio, and was not happy with the results.
Good news, I can drive it now, if I want to. I need to work on the suspension to drive it a lot, as the shocks are all shot. I was thinking of going with aftermarket coil-overs, but I really want to drive it now, so, stock replacement shocks for now.
Anyone know of upgraded springs that will fit? I want to lower the car about 1 to 2 inches in front and back and a little (and I mean a little) bit stiffer spring rate. If I can't find anything, I will take the springs out and measure them and call eibach to see if they have something that will fit.
