car has been running like shit

20 April 2017 - 10:39 AM

As per title

The 180sx has been running like shit for maybe 2+ years now wanna brainstorm a little to see what the problem might be

Used to run like a champ, was incredible on fuel economy and used to light up the tires in 1st/2nd/3rd on boost and could barely keep it straight

Now on boost it makes practically no power, boost still comes on quick and holds but no power

Triple checked for boost leaks and ignition timing is fine, injectors cleaned and flow tested, fuel pump replaced, fuel pump hardwired

Have wideband and runs rich on boost and cruise

Comp test is around 120-110-110-110, oil down spark plug holes i get 140-150ish

The spark plug tips are always coming out white when they used to come out brown, car has also blown around 3 radiators, is this coolant getting into combustion chamber and onto spark plugs? blown head gasket?

Can blown head gasket cause boost to leak out between the head and block? Also can it cause boost to leak into the cooling system pressurising the radiator?

Feels like the boost is leaking somewhere after the throttle body because gauge reads fine but translates into no actual power

Have had the car around 5-6 years this is the first issue i cant fix

electrical gauges that dont light up?

Does anyone know if you can buy electrical gauges that led's that you can turn off during the day?

As far as i know the only way you can do this is with mechanical gauges which obviously dont require any power unless at night when you wire the shit into the parking light circuit

I know alot of electrical gauges have a day mode where you can choose an orange/amber theme but are there any gauges out there you can buy that have no led turned on unless you have parkers/headlights turned on?

sr20det injector impedance

22 June 2016 - 03:29 PM

What is the correct impedance for sr20det injectors? Ive read 11 ohms is factory spec

Ive been checking the impedance on mine with a multimeter and they are coming out at around 12.5 ohms, and a couple of them read inconsistently and bounce around upto like 111 ohms, im fairly certain they're f**ked

I checked the 2nd hand nismo 740s ive got sitting here that i bought off another member and they read around 11.0 to 11.4 ohms
