My battery is behind the passenger seat so the wiring runs along the exhaust tunnel then up behind the dash to the kill switch.

Not random, i'm asking in relation to you over spinning the s/c.

Steve found inlet temps started to rise quickly once over 7300 ish iirc... just something to be aware of if you intend overspinning the s/c.

Ahhh I see. I'm not planning on overspinning it much. My plan is to match the usual max rpm of the charger with the usual peak power of the 16v engine to get the best out of it.

Cheers dude, will get on that soon. Annoyingly I need to get hold of some more hose for the charger first so I can move both coolers.

Like this mate, first see it at Ace cafe, not much has changed since to be fair! Need to get that charger operating to its full.... Something is really wrong looking at the curves...

When you next going to go Ace cafe? My car is almost complete, should be out and about in the march time, will be nice to meet up again for another nose/chat

Jason

p.s Dave your everywhere the last two days ha

It's not as bad as it looks (I think). It ran out of electricity on the M25, wouldn't start and then started misfiring. Luckily Mankee was with me and came to the rescue. I'm also now the proud owner of a Quiky ARB.

Nope, it's been slow progress since I moved out back in April, i'm hoping to have everything sorted, and remapped for PPC in the Park though. I've got most of the bits, the list up above somewhere is what I need to do to finish it off.

I haven't been to Ace since it started getting dark early, but i'll start going again in the new year once it starts brightening up a bit.

Where abouts in Herts are you dude?

I might bump into you on those nights too when my mate's RS Turbo is back on the road.
Hemel Hempstead for me so we're pretty close!

Well I hope i've found my problem. I finally bothered to look at the car today nearly two weeks after it broke. I plugged the laptop in and this is the voltage I found.....



I left it on charge overnight so i'll crank it over tomorrow and see what happens. Strangely whilst it was plugged in with the ignition on the voltage dropped from 8.4 down to 8.1 fairly quickly, say about 5-10 minutes. Not sure if that's normal?

My letter to Santa this year had a car related theme (as per usual ) so now i've got a riv nut tool to do my brake and fuel lines, and a jack that doesn't need the car lifted on to it. Huzzah!





Oh and i've noticed a fair few PMs this week but I can't see any of them until my membership is updated. *cough cough*

Snap I had one of those jacks for christmas

Although mine arrived used, after my dad had to change a flat tyre on his audi. The audi jack slipped and nose dived into the tarmac. So it was lucky santa had hidden my jack in the boot of his car

I'm using a chopped down S2 Rallye loom for the dash sensors, starter wiring etc. The DTA loom was made by Matt King and modified slightly for the 16v sensors by Neil and I.


I spent a long day faffing about with the laptop and a volt meter today. The car had been on charge over night and as usual took probably 30 seconds - 60 seconds of cranking to start.

Once it started the misfire was still there and at this point the voltage was way down at about 10 volts. Plugged in the charger again whilst it was running and once the voltage got back to about 12-12.5 the misfire went so i'm fairly confident the electrical problems are causing that.

Next I tested the voltage with the ignition on (so the ecu is powered) and then with the car running. The voltage with the car running was about a volt lower (about 11.4-11.6V) than with just the igintion on, so from that i'm pretty sure the alternator is knackered, strangely the voltage warning light hasn't come on at any point.

I'm still wondering about a short somewhere draining the battery as an additional problem but I checked the voltage direct from the battery with the kill switch in both positions and there wasn't any noticeable discharge in about 5 minutes.

So to summarise:

Suspected knackered alternator
possible short somewhere causing a slight discharge
Cold start not optimised so prolonged cranking needed to start car (Dry cell battery doesn't like this!).

Sorry about the essay

Hmmm, ECU loom "power" problems often give the impression of slight fuel starvation at high revs and poor starting voltage. Just made me think back to your previous issues.

I suppose it does feel a bit like like fuel starvation but it's throughout the rev range. When I first got it going I had to give it loads of throttle to keep it going. After I reconnected the charger and kept it running the misfire got progressively better as the voltage came up until it stopped completed. The starting voltage starts off ok, circa 12.15-13ish but after the silly amount of cranking needed it's way down about 10 or so.

The other interesting thing is that when it first stated it was running silly lean for about 5 minutes, as the misfire improved the AFR shifted back to about 11-12ish which seems normal for my car starting from cold but it was very erratic, eventually it settled down to a steady idle AFR as the misfire went.

Not that i've seen, but then i've not had any major electrical problems in the near 4 years i've owned the car. I left the standard wiring in place so it should work.

I hate electrical problems!

On a mechanical note, I'd strip that jack down and thread lock all the bolts. My mates one is constantly falling apart

Spoke to Powervamp at the Autosport show on Saturday. <10 Volts = fucked battery.

Ordered a new alternator and new dry cell battery today. Should hopefully have the car back on the road at the weekend.

Is it a powervamp that you use? i use an odysey 545 - it's been completely drained a 3 or 4 times over its year or so life and still going strong (I'm probably going to regret saying that). perhaps the odyseys are a little more resilient when it comes to being completely drained?

I have a dry cell race battery for the xsi, like most of the parts they have just been sitting in my room for ages. I did not realise you were suppose to keep them on trickle charge, but was shocked when I connected it to my battery charger (which was not plugged in) and it blew the charger to bits! Thought it would of been flat as a pancake.

You can leave them disconnected for ages provided they were charged first, they have a really long shelf life if stored properly. Probably best to keep them on trickle though. My car is going to get a once a week charge now.

It's an Odyssey PC680, which is exactly the same as the Red top 25 and Powervamp 25. If you read the technical info you will see that total discharge severly limits the life of the battery. Mine's gone flat god knows how many times so even without Powervamp man's advice it probably needs replacing. It's lasted me well for 3 years of day to day use and abuse though.

When are we fitted your fuel set up then?>!

Oh, remember my battery woes, all I had running was the little alarm LED and it killed the battery. I had to buy a new one. Race batteries are an arseache! I need you to help me sort my leaky driveshaft too when you're free bro - I know exaclty diddly squat when it comes to removing them

I'll swap you dude, my help with the driveshaft for your help with the fuel and brake lines When are you thinking dude? I'll see when I'm free.

Brake lines will be first, need about 30 worth of fittings and then I'm good to go. Fuel lines may have to wait a while longer. Battery and alternator wiped out my spare cash.

I'd get an optimate or something like that so you can keep it topped up in the garage.

What battery do you have? My red top 25 race battery just went 7 weeks without being touched and started the car no problems - right through that NASTY weather we had too. I was seriously impressed lol.

We're both using Red Top 25, mine is branded as Odyssey but they're identical. My battery didn't die, the altenator killed it! Lol

I went for this one from Ebay in the end dude, mainly for the 12 month warrenty. New ones were 150+!!

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...=STRK:MEWNX:IT

Dry cell batteries are fine when looked after, my problem was that without the alternator charging it back up properly it couldn't handle starting the car in the cold weather.

It had two years of mostly day to day short trips with lots of time sat not moving in between and didn't miss a beat until the alternator packed up.

I had this problems over the winter too. had all the symptons you did but i had a noisy PAS pump too. swapped the alternator. still problems then realised it werent putting a high enough voltage out. Took it back , had a hissy fit, got swapped for new one, fitted it and started straight away.

How have you found your Battery other than this problem?? starting from cold and listening to radio without engine running etc???? I'm thinking of one ya see.


Also how do fancy fitting some Aero-catches to my Carbon Fibre Bonnet?? Seeing as your experienced lol
