80mm T/Body apologies to SS
As many would be aware I made a post regarding the SS 80mm T/Body and a bottom end torque drop. I ended up sending it to rod in Melb for his kind donation of $200 to the Salvo's. I went back to the standard T/Body with a 75mm helix from BPT. Then a couple of weeks ago Barry stuck a BPT 80mm T/Body and helix back on the car to see what would happen, result, all the bottom end came back stronger
It then appeared on a post that upon testing in Melb the SS 80mm wasn't set up correctly and was a bit catchy and rough as the butterfly opened, I guess this is what happens when you get a mobile mechanic to do something that takes a little mechanical aptitude or patience and TLC, anyway it appears it was the installing workmanship not the actual product that was at fault as the car is flying all through the rev range with the BPT 80mm installed. One strange thing is that ever since taking off the initial SS 80mm when the car is cold started it carries on like its got an automatic choke and idles around 1500rpm for about 5mins or until the temp needle moves a little, then occasionally at the lights it will rev up to 1500-1700 rpm then drop down and have a little splutter before all normalises. Of course all that the FMC computer will say is that all is well, there are no fault codes, but the HEGOS are a little funny (whatever that means) on cold start. Anybody else getting these idling type dramas?
