Default Grr Little Help Here!

Hey all. Researched and still can't find the answer. I'm installing. Turbosmart fuel cut defender 2 tomoro. Its allows me to clamp the map voltage at boost cut and set a new Max voltage target. The instructions state to clamp the voltage just before boost cut (which is 14.5 psi if I'm not mistaken on my v2 sti). I am wondering what corresponding voltage that is?

Also, does the v2 sti have a 1,2 or 3 bar map?

Any help would be great!

I installed it. Could not get it to work correctly and have put the vehicle back to normal. Waste of money! Can i simply plug in an access port onto my 6k ecu and delet the fuel cut?

i dont know what the hell part you just tried to install on your car, but you couldn't be going about this any worse.

If you want to raise the boost on your car you are going to need a boost controller: either electronic or manual.

now with that boost controller you are also going to need a way to access your ecu an change the fueling and boost parameters, along with the boost controller. this is commonly refered to as a "tune". the level at which fuel cut is engaged can be changed as well.

If you do not know how exactly these engine parameters need to be changed, then i suggest you pay someone else to do it for you.

to answer your question: the accessport can not change your fuel cut point by itself. but you can download cobb's software online and change it yourself, then flash the new map on your car. i wouldnt do this unless you know exactly what you are doing tho

I have experience with megasquirt tuning during my volkswagen builds, but no experience with accessports and such. I will simply read up on this.

As for the product i was using- it is this.
http://www.turbosmart.com.au/product/fcd-2-electronic

I chose this because it still gave me the option to set the fuel cut along with raising it. Give it a read.

And yes the car currently has its boost raised from the stock 13.5psi to 15psi via manual boost controller. Hallmans mbc to be exact.

Upon further inspection- cobb does not service 6k ECU after viewing the info on thier site. Only 2004+ ECU. What are my options?
