Hi Tom, I'm asking because i didn't know what kind of signal the system is controlled by.Backwards step ? How do you figure that ? eliminating the VCT had no loss and some gains with FI in the top end
If you know so much about the VCT why are you asking ?
^ah just my 2 cents but is'nt the VCT there has a way of egr recirculation and not there for "power production"?
Not true at all , I have moved the VCT with in the tuning from a loss of HP one directions to a loss of power the other direction with no gain anywhere , the VCT eliminator does not loose any power from the 2000 to 7300 that I have tested it atFord used it for a number of thngs. Reducing overlap improves Volumetric efficinecy at low rpm and also reduces emissions because your not throwing un burnt charge down the exhaust. Essentially, it widens the power band.
^^not if the VCT was'nt designed to give but instead designed for emissions reasons. Which the SVTF has VCT for emission reasons not power productions. The SVTF has no EGR vavle and uses the VCT for that function not power production. I know what your saying in trying to use it to make more power but this is'nt like v-tec or mivec or any of the others that do use it to "broaden" the power band. If you could tune it to make power then Tom would have done it already. But hey its the thought that counts.
