Acceleration lag in EB II
Ok its starting to get to me now. The EB IIís are a grate car, and the more I fiddle and learn the more I love em, but there is still one thing that really does annoy me Ė this lagging acceleration until 50kmh.
Is this problem engine design related or is it more to do with the drive line setup, ie the diff ratios? Has anyone here managed to eliminate or at least substantially lessen this lag?
From what Iíve read and been told itís sounding more and more related to the diff ratio, but I would like to be sure before I start spending the money on having it converted to 3.45 or a 3.7.
Itís an i6 engine and a 4 speed auto. And please, donít tell me to change to a manual as Iím not interested in a changeover (unless this problem is undoubtedly auto related and there is no other way of even coming close to fixing it)
Also Iím all but convinced that the standard snorkel on the EB IIís allows for far from adequate air flow. What experiences have you all had with different types of snorkels? (Say replacing the original one with one from a XH). Did you notice a reasonable gain in power or was it not worth the effort?
Any info and ideas would be appreciated,
