  1. And not one that breaths through the XF air flow meter either. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. They are quite a snappy car, launch well and have a flat torque curve from 2000rpm on. Living where I do with the dry heat, you can really notice how heat impacts on performance. If it’s high 30s you an really notice it, and now it’s getting colder if definitely goes a lot better. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I don’t touch the 91 up here, it’s that low aramatic shit, I use 95 at a minimum for the new cars and 98 for the others. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I just filled up the G6E, it’s very economical, got 710km out of 62 litres of 95. All around town driving. Go the ecoboost...[emoji854] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. It has 13-14 in vacuum using my vacuum gauge, that’s what I ended up with at about 900rpm. All done on a warmed up motor after a gentle drive. The hyd roller cam isn’t huge, it has about 290 total duration and .515 lift. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Now that I have the AFR gauge, I feel like I will want to have the ratio perfect haha. Tomorrow I’ll change the rear pump cam to the 2nd hole and see if that helps the transition, then I’ll try the 31 size squirter. I’ll do one thing at a time to gauge progress.

  7. Yes have that connected. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Thanks for the advice. I have the transfer slots adjusted as you have said. The front/primary squirter is instant, you breath on the throttle and it starts to activate. The carb is set up standard for the secondaries to start to open once the primaries are at 60% (I’ll double check this) you can change this with different linkages, such as 50/50 or 1/1. I do have a 31 size pump squirter here, I’ll put that in the secondary and try it. The throttle blades have a dimple in them to show where to drill if required, this would be a last resort, however a lot of people seem to do this on the quickfuel dp carbs from what I have been reading to get the idle mixture right. My neighbour complained of the smell yesterday and her washing smelt bad. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. It has the factory 25 squirrels in the front and rear. If I wind the idle mixture screws to much further it doesn’t want to run and I have to have the idle wound in quite away and the afr stays in the 11s. I have been reading and reading and seems a common issue with the idle mixture. Frustrating. So with the lean dip when you floor it, would you up the squirter sizes or change the rod to make the mechanical secondaries kick in earlier? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I have been struggling with a rich idle on this thing for some time. So I splashed out and brought a decent AFR digital gauge and I fitted it up over the weekend. Had the exhaust shop weld in the bung because I can’t weld or have a welder...yet. So plugged it all up and have it nicely mounted so it’s not all out in my face. I then read up on idle mixtures and mucked around with that using my new vacuum gauge. I have a quickfuel 450 mechanical secondaries so have the four corner idle screws. It has between 13-14hg vac with the screws all about 3/4 out. It still idles pretty rich at 11.5 - 11.8. At cruise say 60kmh in third it’s 14.2 - 14.4, at 100kmh in 4th gear it’s drops to around 14.0 When you nail it and go WOT it bounces to 17.0 - 19.0 for a split second until the secondaries kick in and it drops the afr down to pretty much 12.8 - 13.0 So apart from the rich idle I think the carb is doing what it should. I will look at slightly bigger idle air bleeds as currently it has the factory 0.070 size. Apart from the idle can anyone see any issues I should address urgently? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Think I need to check mine now, I’m sure I have the nut on the gearbox side. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I have some 58, 56, 53 and 52 wise jets coming, at $5.90 a pair. Got header off to get oxy sensor boss put in. Should have afr gauge all go this week. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Here’s a plug that I took out today. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. The PCV is connected, on the underside of the rocker cover is the baffle plate. I have a spare breather I might fit and see if that makes any change. I will fit the AEM air fuel ratio gauge this weekend hopefully. See what my afr is doing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Yep right in the middle. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
