When boost cut hits can the car still rev past? Does it stumble or does just not rev?
Exactly. And as I mentioned rather than spend $100 on a fricking BCC you can use an $0.80 diode from Radio Shack to acheive the same effect.MaliCali said:i just installed my BCC this tuesday, and it seriously makes LOAAADDDS of difference, and its cheap, and its not THAT hard to install(and i hate electrical and wireing shit)...
me too!! ive never heard of this, where can i find more info on that?!quick said:Exactly. And as I mentioned rather than spend $100 on a fricking BCC you can use an $0.80 diode from Radio Shack to acheive the same effect.
I wish I had known that before I added a BCC to my Fields harness...
Yah, I'd forgotten about that - Zeners are pretty neat. WAY better than using a resistor for all of the reasons I mentioned before. Just go look up the value the BCC is supposed to be set to and get a Zener as close to that as possible without going over Oh, run high enough voltage and you WILL get past a Zener and it'll look like aq piece of toast tooEspeefan said:I'm also firmilar with using zenar diodes as an over boost combatant. Zenar diodes are electronic devices that come in various voltage ratings. Basically what they do is dump any extra voltage that is higher then their rating to ground. So if you have a 4 volt zenar diode, it will not allow any more then 4 volts to get past it, no matter how high the voltage you try and run through it.
It's an old trick to use a zenar diode to chop the extra voltage off of the boost pressure signal that goes back to the computer. The computer will not see that there is more boost because the voltage never goes higher then (over boost conditions) allowed with the zenar diode chopping the excess off. Thus your MAP sensor will try to send an over boost signal, but it will never reach the computer.
