Has anyone got a pic of one that has been modified to 300kpa. I gave it a couple of taps very lightly but nothing much happened on the pressure gauge. Didn't want too f&ck it. How far do we have too go....

Ok so most peoples cars injectors would never see a duty cycle of over 75%, and your AFR's @ WOT would be somewhere in the area of 11.5-12.3:1, and your increasing your fuel pressure why??? LAMBSE and KAMRF will be tuning out what ever extra pressure your putting in to the fuel system, all your doing is heating the fuel by working the pump harder. Makes sense to me :lol:

Just fitted a xr6 300kpa regulator. Results were very good. Quicker acceleration off the line, power throughout rev range has improved especially before 3800rpm.

Leaning out issues up high in the rev range(pinging/detonation) when using a 3in intake have now disappeared and idle quality has also improved. My idle was never the same after getting pacemakers and exhaust fitted. A new o2 sensor helped a little bit but it has never been the same until fitting this regulator. The engine now idles smooth as silk again...........

Also Bosch have stop making these and ford don't stock them. It took a week for Repco to get me one out of a store in southern NSW. There are no xr6 300kpa regulators left in qld repco stores.

Cheers

im back,
I have done this for sometime now, about a dozen cars within the last 3 months, even a fordmods member in launceston tas, as i happened to have the gear im by boot,

The benifits are,
Its Cheap,
Improves idle quality
improves power
improves the economy, ( Driver Dependent)
Smoother
did I say its a cheap mod,

I know alot of people would love to go and buy a new reg, but why should you,
as this is a mod that you can only stuff up if you are to silly with the tools,

so how did the car manage to suck in more air to create the power? I wasnt aware shoving more fuel in was beneficial unless it was lean in the first place

the presure makes a cleaner spray, Not really more fuel, and with AU injectors, they have a better spray pattern,

cold air does wonders, as it makes the fuel more dense, and burns better, but with that it will burn hotter,

so a good cooling system is required,

The presure just gives a better responce, and smoother, but it does make a poer gain, though the rev range,

If you wanted to be smart you could intercool your car, even without a turbo, as it cools the air better than just a cold air intake,

Scotty
