Re: Liquid injection versus gas injection

Not many and about 3 times the price of a vapour injection system https://tinleytech.co.uk/shop/lpg-kits/multipoint-front-end/3-4-cylinder-front-end-kits/vialle-lsi-4-cyl-liquid-injection-kit/ I still run lambda controlled mixer systems and wouldn't change. Hardly any difference in economy and perfo...

Re: Diy fitting?

You only need straws if you can't put the nozzles anywhere near where the gas wants to be. If you can get the nozzles next to the petrol injectors, then put them there and no need for straws. They don't need to protrude into the manifold far, look at how far the petrol injectors protrude. Why rely o...

Re: Diy fitting?

And I've noticed for sale things like ignition timing advancers to try and maximise the energy potentials of lpg, am I right there and can they be fitted to any systems and does it work or am I completely mistaken there, just wondered? LPG has an Octane rating of 112 so you can run more compression...

Re: Diy fitting?

I'm not loathing of them at all, just the poor design on the pre-2003 engines. MR2 engine swap was pretty straightforward. Support the weight of the engine and gearbox on an engine crane, disconnect it from the rest of the car and lower it down to the ground. Then attach the engine crane to the car ...

Re: Diy fitting?

Richard thanks v much for your input and knowledge, yeah that ties in, did you manage to fit a lot to your daughters mr2 it looks quite cramped in there to access drilling the inlet manifold? So instead of accessing and breaking into the actual wiring loom then if you access the ecu in its 'box' ca...

Re: Diy fitting?

If it's the same as the MR2 (which uses the same 1ZZ-FE engine and probably the same ECU), the common supply to the petrol injectors are Black/Red wires with the with the individual wires being cylinder 1, Black/White from pin D1 at the ECU, cylinder 2, Black from pin D2, cylinder 3, (marked as L on...

Re: Diy fitting?

Look at the wires on each injector, there will be one that is the same colour on each and another that is a different colour to each one. The ones that are all the same colour are the +ve supply while the others are the trigger wires which are the ones you need to tap into. It's easier to pick up al...

Re: USB interface problem OMVL Dream

Be wary, there have been numerous problems with modern rotor arms, particularly those marked as being Lucas. Often, a car that won't run with the new components will run perfectly well with the old ones. The ignition amplifier does give trouble when it gets hot and there are kits available to reloca...

Re: Advice please!

IAC, and everything else on the petrol side, should remain active. The only thing that has changed is that the petrol injectors are no longer firing but with the emulators in there the petrol ECU isn't even aware of that, it thinks it is still doing the fuelling.

He stopped working for a week or so when lockdown first started then realised they were saying you could only go out if you were going shopping, for medical reasons or to work, so he figured he would be OK going out to work.

A mate runs a mobile air conditioning business.

He then does his bit, te...

Re: USB interface problem OMVL Dream

You are right in your thinking that the sensors are connected in a way but connecting them isn't going to affect the way the system is working. The advantage is that you will be able to see what the sensors are reading while looking at the software screen rather than having to have a separate OBD sc...

Re: King ecu connection ecu

Why are you measuring voltages on a data line? It will show 5V when no data is being transferred and 2.5V when it is as the voltage will be being turned on and off. If you want to check you need a scope on it to see the data pulses, a meter will tell you nothing.

What are you using to connect, USB or serial, has it ever worked and if it has, what changes have you made (updating Windoze, etc)?

Re: USB interface problem OMVL Dream

Ahh, just realised, EU spec so will have had lambda sensors from 89, only the very early EFi with the 14CU system would have the tune resistor. Lambda sensors don't need to be connected to the LPG system as the fuelling is controlled by the petrol ECU, the LPG controller just modifies the injector d...

Re: USB interface problem OMVL Dream

The Lucas 14CUX ECU on a Classic uses group injection, or at least per bank. The petrol injectors on each bank are connected in parallel so not sequential.

Re: USB interface problem OMVL Dream

Check the coolant level and if you have the reducer plumbing in parallel with the heater, change the pipework so they are in series. My Classic would ice up and my P38 heater would stop giving heat at idle as the coolant will always take the route of less resistance. Putting them in series cured the...

Re: Advice please!

If you were to pull the vapouriser apart and see the size of the gas vapour chamber, you'd realise that a couple of tablespoons is getting on for half the capacity so it will have restricted the amount of gas it can supply at higher loads. What you need to do now, lockdown restrictions permitting, i...
