Hi Everyone, I read many posts in the archives and lots of Google searches but I would love your advice on my specific case. I have a '78 unrestored 280Z that used to run like a charm and I'm not getting rough startup and probably heat problems? I am pretty noobish with mechanic (learning from 0) so bare with me. Symptoms: A vast majority of the time, the car will 'cough' a lot at startup and runs rough for about 5 to 10 seconds. I'm usually flooring it for a split second during ignition to avoid stalling and then gently rev til the engine runs smoother. I feel like the problem occurs more when the outside temperature is very hot (I live in SoCal), however my car is garaged and the problem also occurs in the morning. The car seems to run better warm and if I stop it after driving it for a couple mile and restart it in the next 10 minutes it will fire right away (like even faster than modern cars, I just push the starter and boom! When that happens I feel almost suspicious of how fast it starts). Finally, I had a problem 2 times. The car stalled after a few miles (usually hot day and driving a bit sporty). It stalls and doesn't turn back on. I had to push it to the side of the road and let it sit for 10-20 minutes before it'd start again. I changed sparks, fuel filter, ignition coil. Any advices appreciated. Stuff that I could check myself would be even better (keep in mind I'm a noob) Thanks a lot, M.
Hi, i have just bought me a "New" unused MS2Extra v.3.57, i kind of regretting it but whats done is done. So now im standing here with this setup for now untill i have got the car approven by the car approval service in Norway, i imported this car from oklahoma2 mth ago, got it for 3 weeks ago. My internals for now is following: L28Et, Stock P90 Head (Turbo) stock 1981 turbo motor. Wasted spark, Ign6 from DiyAutotune, 36-1 Trigger wheel with VR sensor. 2,5bar map sensor. 240sx Tb, Q45 MAF Nissan maxima ,infinity, New 460CC Denso from fiveomotor.com Got them today and they was not Plug&Play as they insured me of, even my package only had 4 out of 6 Injectors. I have to take the plenum of and drill larger holes, Yes its high imp. I called them and they fixed it right away, no problem what so ever. I also have Knock sensor (Stock) But i got the Msknocksens system from MS. What pin is that one going into?? The Ecu was set up for 4 cyl, i have set it up for 6 cyl now it was also set up for stepper motor, i dont need that for my setup, any ideas for what i can and cannot use them for instead for cutiing them out? Im gonna use Fidle for Vacuum idle. When it comes to MAP sensor/Boost controll, why in the heavens name do a person have to add on diffrent components all the time, its like a Nintendo, Ps2,ps3 and on and on.. everything you need you have to pay extra for, it is not alot, like the MK-Boost kit at Diyauto.. 7.80$ its nothing, but why didnt you then implement it when they buildt the board??? So here is my question, i got the MK-Boost kit from DIY, but i cant really find out where to solder it, im not an electrician, and all of the manuals out there are so confusing regarding all of the diffrent and mixed up manuals they got. Where do the pins go? On what output pin, where to solder (pics is nice) i was thinking aboute using 1IAC1. And Please dont send me a link with E-Diagram for electricians from msextra.com . But all advises comes in hand Thanx to you all. //Stian
