Waterbox temperature alarms
We get a lot of request to change the Waterbox temperature limiter.
Some racers have issues with limp mode due to hitting the limiter.
The stock limiter is set at 230 F / 110 C
We have now added this feature in the map editor so you can select what limiter you want.
Only for Bosch based skis for now!
BUT, You guys that runs Motec and other stand alone ecus that might have played with this.
What temperatures have you seen without melting the hull. ... ?
One tuner emailed us claiming that he run his ski w at waterbox temp of 284 F / 140 C.
We have not tested this ourselves .
But could be very good to know where the melting point for hoses and so on starts...

my motec just logs the temps and set to never alarm
some hoses are good to 350f /177c

My water box does not get hot, I have extra water flow to keep it cool
and I could see a racer not wanting much water in his box

Just unplug the sensor. If you have a major overheat the sensor will melt before the couplers. Or remove and leave it plugged in so no sensor on the dash.

BD he is asking what temp the box gets too hot?
Don't think unplugging the sensor and running it till it melts is going to help him figure that out.
Unless you measure temp and change the water flow and see what happens.

I have logs from my M1 showing average temps @ 170°F at high rpm
The tune is set to 266°F before limiting rpm to 4000
Low Fault - 0.100 V
High Fault - 4.900 V
