TCP Bleed off
Hi guys I was just wondering if you bleed of some air @ the TCP sensor wonít that give you an increase in boost? Iím just thinking the ecu will read less boost and thus not open the waste gate so quickly. I know the best way would be to go with the Macsboost module but Rand / Dollar exchange rate, the shipping to South Africa and there will be import taxes so that makes it very expensive right now.

U have a pm .
Bleeding off air to map sensor isn't a good idea . if the ecu doesn't see the boost as the same that Ur engine sees the boost . Ur engine is lean . now u have people cheering in each corner about this issue . but doing boost mods ALONE makes engine run hoter . will burn exhaust manifolds out quicker eat turbos that r not healthy and put more heat on ecu . many have had these issues with their Hondas . not to say its directly related to the macboost or TCP lock/bleeder but it adds to the issues . Honda did a awesome job building the motor . but everything bolted to the motor is expensive to fix if it messes up . so if u do any mods make sure u richen up the fuel mix or add a additional fueling method . ..
Adding boost to the honda is like adding a shot of 100hp NOS to a a carburated engine that's already doing 500hp and not adding the extra fuel to keep it safe ...
Rant over .

Thanks Justin I agree.
Basically what you need is to get more fuel into the engine
Fuel cut defender
Manual boost controller
I think this ( http://www.dastek.co.za/about_the_unichip.htm ) will cover the extra fuel with an extra injector and this will also act as the fuel cut defender.
Also just to make sure you are not running lean a wideband o2 meter.

That's a pretty cool "chip" .
A extra injector would be a great option . tho I would rather retune the fuel curve and keep the meth to have lower intake temps . together with these mods and supporting boost mods one could make a bullet proof setup .
I wonder if the unichip is moisture/water proof?

Mac just prove Ur chip is safe by adding a wideband to one and shooting a video proving its safe just like u did with Ur f15x . and hell even I'll buy one
