Re: Something is seriously wrong!!
Ok, latest update:
Got a 3spd MPFI ECU from the wreckers and plugged it in. Car runs fine, idles pretty well (still need to set the base idle) and seems pretty responsive, BUT i'm still not getting any timing advance! Whats the go?
As I understand it, as revs increase the timing advances as needed, but it's not even fluctuating at all, just stuck rock solid in the one spot. According to the balancer it's sitting at like 30-40 deg BTDC and if I back it off to the IGN mark, the car just becomes a complete dog, won't idle, backfires etc. I suppose the balancer may have slipped, but it still doesn't explain the static timing. I put the car in self test mode and the timing was in the exact same spot and the only code the ECU spat out was 12, which is something to do with the ISC-DCM. I don't get it at all!!!
