MPFI Conversion - completed
And what a weekend it was!
All started off fine, until it came time to change the fuel pump...it would not budge! had 3 mechanics trying to get it out with no luck, ended up having to take the fuel tank out and get to it from there. Anyway fitted the MPFI pump ( noisy as hell ) changed everything else over, no spark
Tried all day to get spark, ended up calling an auto electrician, turn out the MPFI Dizzy TFI was stuffed, so we're using the CFI dizzy for the time being, then we spent another 3-4hours getting the timing right so it would start. A total nightmare and I will never ever attempt another conversion...much easier to buy a MPFI's ea from the start! With that being said, I am one of those people where anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.
Anyway its in and running now, idles a treat, has a slight hesitation off idle but im yet to set the timing to 10deg's. Have to adjust the kickdown & acc cables properly, but i drove the car from brisbane to northern NSW without a hiccup, so must have done something right
The best thing I have noticed so far, besides the increased performance. is how smooth it is...even when cruising. When sitting on 100kp/h with the CFi setup i seemed to be pressing the pedal down alot further than I am now, just have to touch it to be sitting on 100...im very happy with the results....now im off to make some adjustments
Lets go find that Hotdog tree I planted
