    E10, 95 or 98 for pure dollar for distance travelled LS3

    many variables in the tune so u can have all the power/torque u want when u want it but still cruise or drive around normal with minimal fuel usage, on E15 with blower, camshaft, full exhaust/intake i could be in the 8-9L/100 instant when at a cruise, if u got a tune from factory then it would...

    Engine Light P0521

    was it replaced because it was leaking ? sometimes the oil gets into the plug and when replaced the plug still has oil in it causing the same issue so it may just need the oil cleaned out of the plug and will be fine

    Aussie/China relationship........

    if this Covid thing didnt happen China would have got us, its only by this happening that the spotlight was moved onto them and im glad it was, China almost got the key to Australia (belt and road thanks to dan andrews selling Vic to them) we all know how every other country went after signing...

    HSV R8 oil pressure binnacle reads max on ignition

    yea the VY HSV LS1 had to have an extra sender for the oil gauge, VZ up had obd data they could use

    Does untuned better flowing intake result in loss of low end torque

    probe needs a tune tweak as any change to the airflow coming in if its a bigger diameter intake or less restriction or anything that will slow down or speed up airflow will cause the maf to read incorrect so fueling will be out, also with an increased rate of airflow it can cause changes to...

    HSV R8 oil pressure binnacle reads max on ignition

    it should slide straight on to the connector its like a mushroom head, dont pop it off outwardly it will destroy the clip, sender should be on like a billet fitting above the filter, yes that single sender wire put it to earth and the gauge should read zero if it does then sender may be faulty...

    HSV R8 oil pressure binnacle reads max on ignition

    the one above the filter looks like a silver cylinder is the sender for the gauge

    HSV R8 oil pressure binnacle reads max on ignition

    VY hsv oil gauge will read flat out if sender wire is open circuit, take the wire off the sender and put it straight to a known good earth gauge should read zero, if it dosnt then there could be a brake in the wire, if it does then put sender wire to the body of the sender to make sure it is...

    Doing a guide, need a little help with LS engines

    yes and no just depends an the engine combo some do better past a curtain point without the maf, on the VE-VF the maf can go pretty far if u keep it and if it were tune with or without it u shouldnt notice any difference, only issue with keeping the maf can be that alot of tuners think setting...

    Doing a guide, need a little help with LS engines

    yes MAF mass airflow and the SD (mafless or volumetric efficiency) is MAP based, factory use a blended MAF/VVE (map) up till bout 4000rpm and after that its more reliant on the MAF

    Doing a guide, need a little help with LS engines

    ok was thinking the .75 to 1.35 was some form of lambda/EQratio which is like 60% shift, yea i got fueling is map/rpm and timing is cyl airmass/rpm so i get a bit of room to play
  13. 07GTS

    Doing a guide, need a little help with LS engines

    damn thats a big shift .75 to 1.35 no wonder it went to crap, i always seemed to get something going on when i didnt have laptop in vehicle and wanted to adjust it, least your lean cruise is a separate adjustment, on the e38 ecu have to sneak a way to do it without affecting other areas
  14. 07GTS

    Doing a guide, need a little help with LS engines

    lean cruise was tried in the early commodores and LS1 but not in any current e38+ ecu as they brought in DOD, also just leaning out AFR dosnt save fuel its a game u have to get right, leaner AFR also looses torque so the throttle has to be increased to hold set speed which offsets the leaner...

    oil viscosity and noisy lifters

    a thinner oil will get in and through and out of more places quicker then a thicker oil, trying to stop a noise using a thicker oil may just mask/dull the sound not fix the cause where the thinner can get into it and so fill a lifter quicker so it operates better, i got some high rpm hydraulic...

    Ve ss dyno

    ive only seen one VY where the alternator wouldnt charge enough at idle so brought a light on but soon as u got going it was ok, cooling may not be noticeable on the street as the gauge sits in the one spot with a dull zone each side but the faster u can get that would be best without cavitation

    NBN Scam

    the amount of calls we get at work for NBN, solar, led lights, phone contracts, list goes on, seems funny that when India was shut down for covid the calls stopped and when they opened up again it all started again usually between 3-5 in the arvo

    *Rust Alert* - My attempt at saving another VR V8 Fuel Sender Unit

    that plastic return fitting actually comes off the metal pipe so any fitting of hose to the plastic is fine hose clamp ect, yea stay away from the last two just go delphi or bosch of u can find one the bosch i think comes with some of the rubber fittings the pump suits in not 100% tho, that...

    *Rust Alert* - My attempt at saving another VR V8 Fuel Sender Unit

    yea the smell is crazy i know all about it ive fixed many a sender unit from this type of issue, the actual sender may be ok at each end but keep the multimeter on it and move it thru the range and wriggle it around it should stay consistent between the full and empty readings and not go open...

    02 Sensors and fuel economy

    yea be careful with the TB cleaner, i took my intercooler cores out of my blower and soaked in degreaser and still didnt budge the gunk but spray with nulon TB cleaner and boom started to come off straight away then just left some soak and all gone, so just be careful around any...

    Reading spark plugs - when to change

    u running ethanol or just petrol ? if ur petrol id go a 7 or 8 heat range (depending on boost) but ethanol can stay a step colder as it absorbs more heat when ignited, i found the 6 range was good to 14psi on ethanol with 1mm gap, ran couple more psi seemed to like .8 gap better, thats a good...

    Reading spark plugs - when to change

    yep u want them to last get the fancy ones, u want performance and adjustability go the cheaper, anything with the iridium tip gets super hot which is good for emissions but too hot can cause pre ign in performance engines (more so boosted), the tr6 full set $50 every 12 months is easily...

    Reading spark plugs - when to change

    just go a cheap tr6 and leave gap at 1mm will be fine on petrol, any of the fancy plugs are not better for performance only economy/longevity

    according to my injector size and flow rate on ethanol i was using bout 1 litre every 12 sec or so at full throttle, full tank in little over 14 mins no wonder people use alot durin track days

    Power and torque graphs for stock LS3

    more decel/vacuum in 5th compared to the 6th so it may not quite trip the values to enter DFCO
  35. 07GTS

    Power and torque graphs for stock LS3

    would come down to injector pulse width/rpm, if ur IPW is 2ms at 1000rpm and 2.5ms at 2000rpm or even under more load at 1000rpm its 2.5ms then ur still better then the higher rpm as the higher u go u have to multiply it by rpm so same IPW but double the amount of squirts at 2000rpm

    Power and torque graphs for stock LS3

    SD tuning on the street... fun if u only have flat ground, if u can use math/pids with your scanning u can use vehicle speed against previous vehicle speed in time to get a number for acceleration so if u can use repeatable situations and the number goes up ur increasing torque/power, also good...

    Power and torque graphs for stock LS3

    yea the only thing i use the instant usage for is to keep track of how it sits at cruise thats all, it stays pretty consistent so if u see it change like i did once i then found an issue with a failing 02 sensor so replaced and readout was back to normal, transient fueling can be adjusted but...

    Power and torque graphs for stock LS3

    also if ur on factory tune then your PE is rich prob in the 10-11's:1 AFR so with a tune u can lean that off to mid/high 12's and use less fuel but make more power
  39. 07GTS

    Power and torque graphs for stock LS3

    no that is a cluster readout thing unfortunately, it prob still calculates using higher values but just shows that limit must have been some reason for it, unless someone like envyous customs can hack it
