    Where is the oil pressure lamp supplied from

    G (Geber) - connection to the pressure gauge. WK (Warnkontakt) - connection for the pressure switch the housing is the common ground connection for the unit, so don't use teflon tape when fitting.

    In Ian's picture the black thing on the left is the oil temperature sensor. The middle is the oilfeed hose to the turbo. The semi gold coloured thing on the right is the oilpressure sender with the lowpressure switch.

    Time to start explaining

    Just a pic of the oil? No pics of the gearbox internals? 😱😮
  4. Remember that the MAP calculations in Freescan are not correct. Freescan uses the following conversion for calculating/displaying the MAP pressure in bar: MAP (bar) = (MAPADC - 130)/100 + 1 The right conversion is: MAP (kPa) = (MAPADC / 255 + 0.04) / 0.005 1 bar = 100 kPa MAPADC = MAP sensor AD counts

    Anyone know what chip this is?

    Looks like an EPROM to me, so don't remove the sticker unless you want to corrupt / erase the data contained in the chip. The only way to tell what version it is is to hook up ESPRITMON / Freescan en read the PROM ID. If it is an unknown ID than the whole content needs to be "dumped". ESPRITMON can do that as well as a suitable Programmer. The dumped contents than needs to be reviewed / analysed. (time consuming job).
  6. Like Filip said Calculator set to degrees.
  7. It was not me, I found it a long time ago on TLF. Will look next week when I'm home if I have more.
  8. If you keep the toe in angle (in deg) the same and increase the wheel (rim) size the measurement in mm will be greater. SIN (0.3609°) * 17 * 25.4 = 2.7mm. etc.
  9. For starters (it is not completely the same.) for making your own heater panel. Turbo Esprit Heater Panel.pdf
  10. The first number is the value with the second and third one indicating the tolerances. For example: Camber: -.2°; +0, -0.5° means that the Camber angle should be between -.2° + 0 = -.2° and -.2° -0.5° = 0.7°. The same applies for the Castor. As for the Toe in: The indicated value is for the original 15" front wheels. The Toe in (2nd column) numbers are: 0.6mm each side, + 1.8 mm, -0mm. So the Toe in for each side should be between 0.6 + 1.8 = 2.4mm and 0.6 - 0 = 0.6mm. A little bit of math: ARCSIN (2.4 / (15 * 25.4)) = 0.3609° = 0° 22'. ARCSIN (0.6 / (15 * 25.4)) = 0.0902° = 0° 5.4'. The values in the manual are for the original sized wheels, as you are running bigger wheels the values are probably not right. Ask Travis @Vulcan Grey what his settings are as he is also running bigger wheels on his SE.

    Oil Pressure Oddness

    The 1.2 +/- 0.15 bar marking is the switchpoint value of the pressure switch.

    RC Injectors

    Hi Jim, @Jphoenix13 Which Five-O Injectors did you fit? (the "older" brown top or the newer 380cc ones)

    RC Injectors

    Thanks for the info Chris, did you fit RC Engineering Injectors? , and if so can you share your experiences etc with them?

    RC Injectors

    Some of the Bosch ones have double slots, the RC ones only have a single slot for the clip, thats why the question of using the o-ring groove I send RC Engineering an email for dimensional information, I got some of the dimensions but not the slot ones. so requested them also.

    RC Injectors

    So that means using the O-ring Groove? Price wise there is almost no difference between the five-o injectors and the RC Engineering ones nowadays. The Five-O primary ones (E5ZE replacements) are now 380 cc/min instead of 370 cc/min and 2.7 Ohm. Both values are a little too high for my liking.
