    Good article (link works for me). It was nice to see them use the word blat, although I suspect it confused some of their US readers :) I was less...

    Anker, I wouldn't worry about the crossflow. The SuperSprint spec is a well known formula for those engines and unlike the Duratec, the crossflow...

    Sounds like a great project. Was it already in the US when you found it, or did you import it from the UK? Thanks, John

    I've had three different cars with twin DCOEs, including a 1700 crossflow similar to the Super Sprint spec. None of them had the chokes hooked up...

    JohnCh replied to a thread Chike cable source in General Tech
    Assuming properly set up DCOEs and no issues, you shouldn't need a choke to start the car even in cold weather. Are you familiar with the DCOE cold...

    John,

    I checked a few things tonight.
    TPS: I'd been calibrating it using the cam lever on the linkage. However when I tested it, it was only to 85%. I recalibrated to get a full 0-100% movement.
    Injector scaling. My initial setting was 200cc/min which equates to 169bhp (per Emerald). However, I'm running 320cc min injectors provided with the kit. So, should I tweak the injector scaling to reflect the 320cc capacity? Also, should I change it to 2.75 bar fuel pressure (40 lbs) which is what I'm actually running or is the 3.0 bar default sufficient?

    Thanks again

    Jason
