To date they have tried 3 solutions:
swapping out the oxygen sensors for known good ones - didn't work;
cleaning the 'gum' out of the throttle bodies - no difference;
installing a new version of the ECU 'firmware' - some improvement but still not as smooth and free running as I'd like.
My next step was going to be to buy a PC. My local dyno guy says he can do a map for each cylinder, which sounds like what is needed if the hex head motor is, in fact, fuelled and sparked like 2 engines.
That's what the ECU does, but it isn't how it should be. If you get a PC, tune both cylinders the same.
Poolside, you mention that the CAN BUS version of your 'solutions' are further down the track. Like how far?
|We're developing the device for the 1200 CANbus over the winter, and it should be ready for spring. Maybe sooner.|
The first product, the one we're working on now, is designed to improve the low RPM symptoms you described, on the 1100/1150/1200. It will be finished in about three weeks. When that happens we'll put up a thread in the Vendors forum.
You're having problems with a lumpy idle too? A device for that is also scheduled. It may get slotted in over the winter.
The development work for all the devices will be posted here. In a few days I should have a production example of the first product in hand.
At that time I'll post up a description of the products, and a timeline for development.
