I know a couple of guys asked about turbos. This one is just the install but not tuned yet but interesting how he does it. Not for keeping it all under the hood though.
Watched them all last night. I cant remember what video it was but he did speak on grabbing the head off the 08 and doing some port work and maybe put it on the 05 motor. Like you said it won't work but we'll see where he goes with that. Hopefully he finds out sooner than later that picking up a good running 08-09 i6 will be his best option. I sure hope he does go all the way through to the end of this project.Cool. He's just not working on that turbo build though. Sure hope he doesn't try to swap in the 05 motor into the 08 electronics because we all know that won't work. I'll bet he's gonna hunt for an 08-09 motor if he can get the body and chassis together.
I mean, not the way I would have gone but kudos to him for doing his own thing. The 05 PCM is virtually not tunable for boost. But the 08 PCM (E67) is almost as versatile as an aftermarket ECU.
Hi Rick,@limequat Would you please explain more about the E67 capabilities (and limits) as a forced induction controller?
For example, are there additional I/O's available, can some I/O's be reassigned, can boost control be achieved, what are the absolute pressure limits and so on.
I happen to have a 2wd controller out of a 08/2007 TB. It has a tiny E67 stamped on the backing plate, so I'll assume it's the controller you mention. I'm interested to work with you when it comes time to address power adding mods using the stock ECM.
Someone who was industrious could theoretically swap out the cam sprockets and build an external 58x reluctor wheel.
Besides the crank teeth, the cam teeth are different too. In fact, many of the sensors and actuators are different and would need to be switched over such as the throttle body and crank sensor itself.
That's some real outside the engine thinking.
Say Lime, I seen this today on the 4200 Facebook page about the complete intake cam sprocket replacement from an MY 06-07 onto the MY 08-09 to fix MS3's problematic software issues. Do you think it's a thing? From what I read earlier, MS3 was somehow broken from a software standpoint across the board for controlling the VVT on the 4200. I was certain Jarrod had this working on the Vega years back.
Thank you limequat, I appreciate your insight. I have a pile of mixed parts from a variety of year models to pull from, and I noticed a MAF sensor on the intake tube of what is presumably a newer year model. I need to back up a bit and match the harnesses, sensors and computers to their respective years.
I'll be sending you a P12 controller for unlocking and to configure for stand alone operation . How do I identify the P12 from the earlier and later models?
