Re: 65mm Throttle Body
OK, 3,000km later things haven't changed that much. The car seems to be suffering fuel starvation after about 4,000rpm. I've got it booked for a test drive with the tech and we are going to screw on a fuel pressure guage to eliminate it (or pin point the cause). As for what I've done so far, it's been very mild. K&N Air filter, Herrod Springs, Herrod Sports Muffler, 17" allloys, Body Kit, Clear ST side flashers, Sentry Tint, and the 65mm T/B.
I know of an upgrade to the Software that is due soon that is supposed to address the surging and flatspot issues that all zetecs suffer from.
After the drive to QLD and Back, I'm not so sure the 65mm T/B was such a good idea. I think it is something that should be done if you are considering major mods like cams, turbo kits, ect. I'll admit that it didn't effect my fuel consuption at all! I got 7.0L/100km average consumtion and my average speed was between 120-125km/h for the whole trip (1,280km in 10:30 driving with 01:45 rest & refuel) ps: don't tell the HWP.
more to follow after the road test with Dave ( the tech ).........
Don't bother running...
....you'll only die tired!
