slug when hot, pocket rocket when cold!

Hey Peoples,

Well sorted out most things on my CFI EA.. new air filter, fuel filter, 2nd hand ICS motor from wreckers, and unplugged the switch on the clutch pedal from the computer. It idle's, runs, goes...

Only problem I have is when its hot, its slower than 50cc scooter.

If I head out with the motor cold, all things are fine.. drive 20km with nice power all the way. However, if i stop say at a shop 5km down the road, or start the car anytime its warm.. it has at least 25% less power than when cold.

What sensor would be making the computer go into slug mode? Can i simply whack a resistor on the appropriate temp sensor and trick it. I would love to have the same power hot as i do cold.

Any ideas?


Cya

Jamie

hey jamesk

Nah mine doesn't have the hotair pipe, and i've removed the vacuum hose from the vacuum motor which activates the hotair stove intake (blocked off the vacuum pipe).

not a bad suggestion tho

Jamie.... i had that problem long ago wit my CFI... it disappeared when i did the conversion. How about we both get the EF intake setups?? We could do both our cars together one weekend?
