@Rob,
How do you tune the ignition timing?
Or do you just have a preset (X pounds of boost = Y degrees of retard) equation that you conform to?


Hi spetz,
For ignition timing I didn't mess with it too much, i'm going off what the tuner did on my previous FTO as I still have the map from that and used it as my base map.

It's mainly 0 but there are a few points in the map where they added a little advance in (1-2 degrees) at certain boost levels and rpms but after 7 psi it's either 0 or retarding it so -1,-2,-3 degrees (depending on boost).
I went a bit more conservative though and any 2 degrees advance I knocked down to 1.
I really need to get it on a rolling road to verify i'm not getting dett though as it's a bit risky going off a previous map without knock detection equipment.

Rob

Are you able to see what the factory knock sensor is picking up?

No but I presume if it was knocking the stock ecu would retard it a little (well i'd hope so).

I have been reading a lot about supercharger on ftos as a cheaper alternative to turbo and it unlocks some of the fto potential.

I am wondering what do everyone think of supercharger vs turbo? Can you turbo a gpx or is it better and easier with a GR

Yeah you can turbo a GPX, a GR (or even GX) may be a better candidate though.
If you're handy with a welder it would help a lot.

Personally I like the supercharger route, my Son prefers turbo, and if you're chasing big power then turbo but I don't see the point in chasing big power with these cars, or I can't justify the cost but that's just me.
A modest increase in performance for a modest amount of money is where it's at for me.

I think you'd need to include labour for most people, Rob. :lol:

That includes Rob's labour, he's generous like that.
