just go pull 3% fuel and add 3% timing to your maps and see how it drives. the whole map. go on.
OK, I looked at the math and the altitude range is somewhere around +- 2000 feet from nominal before you start running into any practical issues. The front O2 is compensated for with atm. pressure changes. At 14.7psia there is no compensation. At 13.15psia, there is an 11% compensation. Going up in altitude will make the car run richer in Closed Loop.

To put this into perspective, typical atm. pressure of 13.1psia occurs at around 3000ft. So if doing my ECU hack, I would not drive the car anywhere with an altitude difference of +- 1500ft, just to be safe.

How much does the atmospheric pressure change by when a storm rolls in? Looks like about 3%. Less than .5AFR.

But timing really isn't affected on a SD car.

PCBA is the assembly inside the ECU. The ECU includes the chassis, or housing. And most EE's I know call them Boards or Board Assemblies. We can see they are printed circuits and assume you can too.

Does anyone know anything about MG's? I am having thoughts about picking up an MGB GT and someday doing an engine swap of some type (LS1, F20, SR20).

SOLVED!!!

Talked to Harvey @ The Boost Creep where I purchased the injectors and he wanted me to take them out and push on the pintle with a ball point pen. After that, he suggested I blow air through the injector at the pintle to ensure nothing is clogging it. He has had one other customer have the same issue I was describing. After pulling the injectors, doing this procedure on all of them, the car fired right up. Apparently, some Injector Dynamics injectors are having a stuck pintle issue. Harvey is contacting Injector Dynamics to relay the issues we are seeing, as this is causing much grief amongst his customers. I am the 3rd case in over 60 sets sold that have had this issue, so it is quite rare.
Gatdamit! Are there any injectors that always work?

Good find shek. After an injector is tested and shipped, maybe some form of corrosion is taking place before it actually gets used. Ill make sure i check mine (whenever i ever get them) first before installing them.

The city will take it under their "large item" provision. I put a couch out once and they just threw the whole thing into the compactor.

If you don't live in the city, well...put it out on some random curb in a residential area on trash day on that street.

You can recycle tv's for free at construction junction in Point Breeze if that is anywhere near you. Just throw it in the car and drive up to one of their loading docks and tell them you have a tv to get rid of. They take it and another company picks them up later and recycles them.

I think best buy is supposed to recycle tv's for free also but i'm not sure of which size tv's they will take.


They will probably take it if you put it out for trash but i figured i would throw the recycling option out there since i try to recycle as much as possible.

It's a non-functioning 13" CRT tv. Not reusable without effort. Not worth any effort. Thinking scrap electronics. Guess I'll call my trash company and see if they accept it. They take large stuff any trash day. I just thought TVs and electronics are a nono kind of like like old oil bottles.

Do this. Don't worry at all about the lead and other hazardous materials in there.

13". Just put it in the can or a garbage bag if you think they won't take it but I am certain they will. I have a 50" DLP I need to dispose of.

I figured it was broken. That's what they do with them. They scrap all of the parts possible out of them. They don't try to fix them. I have taken tv's, vcr's, stereo's, etc. to them.

+/- 1500 ft range for driving altitude will not be a viable option for me. I know a few places off of the top of my head that I drive that I am at over 3000 ft and I definitely will want to be able to drive at 0 ft.

I think my best option is to hack up one of the valves, remove the sensor and tuck it away somewhere.

I took a bunch of old PCs and other electronics to Westmoreland Mall. They have a company that comes in a couple times a year and recycles old electronics like that. Also Westmoreland Fairgrounds has electronic recycling a couple times a year. I'm not sure where in Pgh they have these. Try googling electronic recycling and you should get a link to local places.
