  1. I don't remember running into any issues when I installed my pedal assembly/master cylinder but I have a 280z and it appears as though there are slight differences. If you look here, it looks like their pedal has a bracket welded to the pedal to correct the offset. http://www.jdmjunkies.ch/wordpress/2015-10-28/240z-pedal-box-throttle-pedal-assembly/ I noticed the same thing in a few other pictures. And if you read this thread, it sounds like the same issue you have as a result of trying to use a 280z pedal in a 240z pedal box.
  2. Time based access TPSdot and ms pulse width

    Oh, I didn't realize that older versions of MS use a time-based PW adder instead of percent-based. All I know off the top of my head is that my car idles somewhere between 1.5 - 2ms, with 450cc injectors. Btw, why do you think percent-based is archaic?
  3. Time based access TPSdot and ms pulse width

    Here are some resources that I was directed to when I started to focus on AE. For now I have gone with the method outlined in the first video and have gotten decent results. and a post by someone in response to my question "Personally I use EAE, once you get it all set up I get the best results with it. With the stock settings and no tuning it will make your car run like shit. If you want something to get up and running quick, use time based or AE pump. If you have the time and dedication set up EAE and use AE pump for large stabs. For EAE your going to want to do some pulls at ~ half you rev range, ie your car redline is 8000, do the pulls at 4000. Negate the coolant temp and RPM corrections Slowly, but steadily roll onto the throttle until WOT, hold WOT for ~2-3 seconds, then at the same rate slowly roll off the throttle till your in overrun. There are a few methods to do this, what I find best is this. Added to Walls is the coefficient that tells the ECU how much fuel is sticking to the walls, there for it directly controls pulse width. If you tell the ECU more fuel is being stuck to the walls, it will increase injector pulse width to compensate. If you are rich on tip in, decrease this value, too lean increase this value. Sucked from Walls is the coefficient that tells the ECU how much fuel is being sucked from the walls, it indirectly controls pulse width, If you tell the ECU more fuel is being sucked from the walls, it will decrease injector pulse width to compensate. If you are rich on tip out, decrease this value, too rich increase this value. Once you have this settled for your current rpm range, tune the RPM modifiers then I suggest setting up a rough map in the coolant temp modifiers based on logic. More fuel is going to stick to a cool engine wall, etc. Then tune that as you would cold starts. Once that is all settled you will find you can greatly reduce your Accel pump AE and really only utilize that for large quick stabs on the throttle. Turbomiata has a few good threads on setting up EAE, honestly for MS stuff look into the miata community. They by far have the most experience with the system and the community is good about sharing reliable information. If you are using EAE with a flex fuel set up, keep that in mind and realize you'll need to make some compromises on each base fuel for blends to work smoothly. If you got any question let me know."
  4. Donation not showing up.

    Just before the site migration, I donated (since my previous donation had expired) but continued to get daily PMs about my member group changing. The PMs have thankfully stopped since the migration, but my member status doesn't reflect my recent donation. Am I going to have to donate again or can this be fixed?
  5. WTB L28 Oil Pan

    I have one kicking around if no one local to you has one for sale.
  6. L31 street performer build

    Offset grind or completely different crank doesn't matter. If you increase the stroke, you will have to decrease the rod length to maintain the same piston deck clearance. If you started with zero deck clearance and increased both the stroke and the rod length, your piston is going to come proud of the deck and slam into the head. Unless, you change your pistons for ones with a shorter pin height or you alter the dimensions of the block.
  7. WTB: Stock Turbo Wastegate Housing

    I should still have an entire turbo at the house somewhere, including the wastegate. The turbo would need to be rebuilt if you wanted to use it. I'll send you a PM later once I check.
  8. New 280z Center Console reviews?

    Figured I'd post an update. Thanks to your feedback I finally ordered one, (from Amazon as it was the cheapest when I ordered) and it appears to be an actual factory Nissan part, complete with a Nissan Group Genuine Parts sticker and other markings in Japanese on the box. I couldn't be more pleased with it.
  9. Would you sell just the standoffs and hardware? I bought a bracket from ZCCJDM a while back, but didn't come with any of the hardware and I'd rather get it as a kit than source it myself.
  10. USB Chargers in your S30?

    I hardwired a 5v buck converter to a USB port designed for my daily driver. It charged my stuff REALLY slow at first but I realized I had to short the Data pins together to get my devices to charge at a high rate. If the two data connections aren't shorted together, your phone/tablet/etc thinks it is connected to a computer USB port and limits it's charging to 500mA. Not the cheapest route, but here is the exact converter I used. https://www.adafruit.com/product/1385 You could use something like this to flushmount the port itself. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06WWNZ18N?psc=1
  11. 2009 WRX drivetrain to 280z

    Too bad the Factory Five 818 is setup to accept parts from an 07 WRX but not 08+
  12. HybridZ may be shutting down.

    My donation expired about a week ago, and I went ahead and donated again. However, in the meantime I have received 7 private messages telling me that my group promotion has expired. I basically get one every day. Anyone else have this issue?
  13. I wonder how difficult it would be for someone to report your ads to eBay "as Nissan." Spoofing e-mails isn't difficult and if your competitors can easily get your ads removed, it means more money for them.
  14. Power and Speed Podcast

    I don't know if anyone else here listens to podcasts, but I have recently come across a really good one for those of us who are interested in the details of automotive engineering. https://www.facebook.com/powerandspeedpodcast/ They have recently had guests on such as Greg Banish of Calibrated success, Ben Strader of EFI University, Paul Yaw and Tony Palo of Injector Dynamics and a bunch more. I'm slowly working my way through back episodes because the content is so good.
  15. So, I have spent a lot of time reading about deadtime and trying to figure out what to set mine to (DSM 450cc low imp injectors with resistors.) I first tried measuring deadtime using a graduated cylinder and test mode in tunerstudio. I got very accurate results, but couldn't come up with a good way to test at various voltages because to use the megasquirt drivers, I couldn't have the engine running. So I was able to come up with a number, but it was only for 11.9 volts, which doesn't help a lot for a running engine. After some more reading, I came across something so simple that I felt like an idiot for not thinking of it. Ensure you are setup for batch injection and then cycle between 1 and 2 squirts per cycle. If your deadtime is accurate, your AFRs shouldn't change. If your deadtime is too long, when you go to 2 squirts per cycle you are going to be injecting more fuel than the computer thinks and you will go rich. If your deadtime is too short, in 2 squirts per cycle you will go lean. Now I have a pretty good number for both ~11.9 volts and ~13.9 volts and between the two I can set up a slope.
