Question for those guys that have done some tuning before. I took the SD4 out for a trip around the block today. It doesn't have much power and while driving it won't rev over 3,000 rpm. Though while idling it will rev up to 4k without issue.
Would something like this typically a condition associated with too much fuel? Or is the timing a better place to start looking for the cause of this condition.
I double checked the lash on all the rockers while looking for a mechanical cause to the problem, and while they weren't perfectly adjusted, it was certainly close enough to get by with.
1 - Low fuel pressure - Enough to rev up the engine with no load but with a load the RPM limit drops
2 - Plugged Cat converter - If the exhaust note sounds 'wheezy' then look at this. Remove the O2 sensor from the exhaus pipe causing an exhaust leak. Then test drive. If the problem is greatly reduced that would indicate a plugged converter/exhaust.
I thought the whole point of the ebl flash was to tune it's own ve tables dynamically. Ebl support might be the place to start? I'm not familiar, but i looked briefly at them. They look like a great item to compliment the 7730/7747
Yes, EBL does allow you to 'learn' a new tune VE thru an iterative process. It is not a learn a new tune, and everything is magically corrected.
My question is specifically what would cause the symptoms that I am experiencing? No Power. No rev above 3000 when driving. I'd kinda like to know if once I get my rich condition resolved if that will likely improve these problems, of if I will still have another problem to battle.
Fuel pressure is something that has been suggested as a potential cause. Is there anything else I should be looking at?
