Re: Which is the correct wideband controller/ gauge in 2019/2020?

Frankly, I don't know. I've used PLX, AEM, Innovate, Ballenger and others to good effect. Never knowingly had an issue with any of them. However, engine testing labs spend thousands to buy either ETAS or more commonly the ECM controllers. Considering the price for the AFR500 by Ballenger is pretty t...

Re: Which is the correct wideband controller/ gauge in 2019/2020?

There is a lot that goes into the controller circuit to correctly heat the pumping cell. Cheaper ones still do not do it as well as better ones. IMO, this is the best unit I'm aware of for the money. The control circuit is by ECM, the industry standard for Laboratory use. https://www.bmotorsports.co...

Re: 1994 Toyota Supra Twin Turbo, auto, stock - $40K

Also, curious how much the trans can handle. As far as I know they aren't doing anything to the trans. Anybody know for sure? I don't keep up with the new Poopra like I should. The trans is the ZF 8spd that basically everybody is using in one form or another. Chrysler builds their own under license...

And the merged exhaust ports are stupid.
I had serious doubts those two tiny exhaust ports were gonna support 1khp, but I was wrong. Just saw he hit his 1khp goal with ~42psig manifold pressure.

I've no particular love for Bugatti, and that car doesn't make me wet.

But 304 is hugely impressive.

No direct mechanical synchronous link between crank and cam(s) sounds like a completely fabulous idea. You should patent it.

Ford v6 had one in front and one in the back, and some have 4 shafts spinning but only two operate the valves Which Ford V6 had one front and one rear timing chain/belt? I wouldn't put such nonsense past Ford, but I sure can't think of which engine that might be... Closest I can think of is the que...

And then the kicker is people STILL BOUGHT THEM. Well... it's understandable that your typical Audi buyer is not going to be privy to all the engineering details such as timing chain arrangement. And, the "glitch" didn't really surface until the cars were old and used. So again, a boon for the orig...

Ever since I became aware of Audi's 4.2L V8 rear-chain(s) albatross, I've spent countless hours considering why the fuck they'd do it that way. I mean, it's not simply "because we can", is it??? Surely they were operating under some objectives and criteria that pointed them in that direction, right?...
