Christiano!

Once again - thanks for all advice - I'm sure there will be more questions as test-n-tune starts in April. FT and the GearController is such an asset to racing and easy to work with/tune. Amazing stuff! Stay great! I'm on FB if you want contact there!

By the way, your 6.0 video came up today on my time line for some reason and I noticed that when you are spooling your turbo it spends quite some time in an intermediate RPM before actually hitting the 2step limiter.
This usually happens for 2 main reasons: too much fuel or too much ignition retard (I'd bet on the latter).

If you want to discuss, just send me a PM.

Christiano!
Nicely spotted and I have thought the same after all your input above, as I realized it 'got stuck' in the middle. I will definitely back off on the retard and try it from there. The car is down for maintenance now but it is on my 'to do' list!
Thanks for sharing!

Yeah. There's a few ways of doing it, like
  • Reduce the retard of the fixed ignition timing on 2step
  • Enable an ignition map on 2step and tweak the timing table based on what your engine likes
  • Work with the actual ignition map in a pre-2step range that helps your to spool your turbo when going to the lights. So when you flat out the turbo is already spooling and it'll make it easier to hit the target boost

Lets see how much racing will be allowed due to covid.

But i can say that there will be some nice fueltech updates soon Wink

My FT500 equipped dragster is on a long holdup. But should still be getting some attention and startup soon.
The latest car to get my attention is my circuit racer. It has a small Holley carburetor and two small SC. My brother scolds me for doing it that way, when the car/engine previously did have a DTA60 injection (that worked).
But that is me in a nutshell, constant change.
Back to FT and good sharing soon. Thanks for your support! Very appreciated!

You forgot two options: Spray it with nitrous. Not allowed BUT run a Screwcharger takes away all that "turbo spool up nonsens" :-)   Wink
Sorry, do not not take me for being too serious. I admire were we are today with the electronics in principle taking away any spool delay. 

My first contact with turbo was in 1976 when my brother bought me a Rajay (and hand carried it on the flight) in California for my 1960 MkII Jaguar and the Turbocharger book by Hugh McInnes. I was totally bitten! Few years later I saw Buddy Ingersoll race his Pinto and that convinced me further.
No, no electronics, whatsover.

I love engineering! NA/Turbo/Nitrous/SC and EFI!

Hi all!
I'm at bit delayed with the 356 project due to a shoulder injury but the plan is to be out mid/end July. Done some mods to the engine so hopefully a bit more HP - will dyno before hitting the track. And yes - the electronic wastegate looks awesome!!

We were racing last weekend, had some gremlins after changing lots over winter but am getting there now, this semi final run is best pass since switch to Fueltech. Now just got to get 60ft back again to what it was running consistently last year and should see some 7s again Grin

Hi All,

Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Alex, and I am running an ft550 in my single cab tube chassis project.

Richie was been helping me get it running and tuned.

Last Friday was my first time at the track so still in the very early stages.

I have done a full build thread on Instagram @secondcomingsinglecab and on Facebook Second Coming Single Cab
