    Gunna: 08 SHO Cruiser, C5, Motec M400.

    Well this will be the start of a 12 month project with my SHO (affectionately called the "Pig") to see what can be acheived.

    Main Goal: In May 2010 compete in the Hawksbury Bridge To Bridge Race in Sydney Australia (not to win but to see how we go!).








    Secondry Goals:
    1. Using the Motec, develop 3 (out of 4) different programs that maximise fuel usage for long trips, learner program and a standard program for just cruising around.
    2. Do the mods (with a monthly time limit) in a way that the ski can still be run when needed, for family outings, etc.
    3. Beyond 2010, look at a drag racing setup, maybe.
    The setup (to be updated as we go along) will involve:
    1. Standard SHO 1800 motor. With modified head, JE pistons and K1 rods. All balanced.
    2. C5 wheel. Now a C6 modified.
    3. Rising Rate Fuel Regulator. Fitted but not used. Now running 1000cc injectors.
    4. 13/25 prop.
    5. Type 19 intercooler. Now a type 12.
    6. Motec M400 with all (some of) the little goodies.
    7. High strength intake grate setup.
    8. Upgraded ride plate.
    9. Pump tunnel reinforcements.
    10. Air cooling mods for the engine bay to remove resident heat.
    11. Re-routing / additional water cooling lines.
    The reason for posting this is to have as much input as possible from you guys and gals. I'm up for a "flamming" if you think it's all too much. I have got a lot of info from everyone here at Greenhulk and other sources, so thanks so far. If your lurking in the background and want a quiet chat PM me and we'll connect. This is not a business venture so I have nothing to gain by recommending certain products (other than Jerry letting me use GH as a resource), it's just what works for me. Call it a "Midlife Crisis Hobby" thing.

    Pics and Motec ECU data files will be updated as we go along. Thanks in advance for your help.

    C5 Wheel and RIVA Performance Power Filter Kit fitted

    The C5 and the Power Filter kit was installed today but no time to test.
    I'll pickup the M400 Motec ECU from Gary W on Thursday and take it for a basic run on Saturday morning at the ramp.

    We will not be giving Pig a hard workout as there is no BOV installed yet and we want to keep our sprage clutch together.

    I will post the Motec data file Saturday arvo, then, by using the program at http://www.motec.com.au/filedownload...exe?docid=2410 you'll all be able to analyse the death out of the run (as I have done with some files that have been given to me from the B2B race).

    There may or may not be the GPS functions available on the day. This software function should be available soon.

    So here we go!

    The Motec Kit Arrives

    Picked up the M400 kit today. Here's what was in my box of goodies. I have the data logger interface added so I can have a play around with different settings and check all things measurable. But for the average skier it's plug and play. Gary will fit a good base map on the box for your setup: Standard, C1, C3, C5 or whatever is a good match. The base maps are from Motec Pete and gang.

    All the normal dash operations should work ok.

    Motec M400 Installed.

    It's in and running. At least on the trailer.

    1. Unclip electrical cover.
    2. Remove old ECU.
    3. Don't forget to remove negative off battery.
    4. unclip the 3 sockets.
    5. Install m400. Rubber bit goes behind the M400. Use double sided tape.
    6. Bolt into place. Use loctite on screws. Connect plugs into the Yami wiring harness and the M400.
    7. Connect Battery.
    8. Go Go Gadget.

    Now we water test.

    Thanks for the encouragement 08.

    Well I've downloaded the ECU engine management software from http://www.motec.com/filedownload.ph...exe?docid=3082

    Pluged in the usb cable to the data logger adaptor and then plugged that into the Motec loom.
    Windows installed the Motec device into the USB port.
    Then I opened the ECU. "It talks" and we have comms to the brain. How easy was THAT!!!

    Now we can start to study all of the functions of the software. I can feel some late nights coming on.

    Sorry for the crappier than normal photo's but it's a little dark right now and the phone camera can only do so much.

    The yellow wire is a spare off the loom to turn the ECU on without having the key in the ignition all the time. It'll be put thru a switch later.

    First Data Log Post.

    FYI.


    You can not directly read this file as it has a ".ld" extension.
    • Double click on the file then save it to the Motec Program - M800-V35.
    • Open the I2 standard program
    • Open file
    • find the downloaded ".ld" file you want to read, double click.
    Have fun reading the data. Data never lies.

    Many thanks to Hydrotoys for sorting this out and allowing .ld downloads.
