Oldsman has the correct answer. That is dead on. My car pulls timing based on IAT temps regardless of KR (which I didn't have with the last pulley). You can eke out an extra 1 or 2 degrees (3-6 horsepower) if you know what you're doing.

I thought the PCM pulled timing if the readings of the IAT were high enough before KR accured.
I can see that if it is really hot... I've had my car in 100 degree weather and 30 degree weather and I always get 12 degrees of timing at WOT. Is my car a freek or what?

I should put that in my sig j/k.

Now if you adjust IAT reading. How much is to far? I know this is a "track only deal" . But if track temps of 90 degrees. I would be afraid to eke one degree of timing with the CooCoo boost you are running.

Have you seen the conditions we run in out west? Why do you think I'm doing this?
Ambient air temps are typically 100 or more, and track (asphalt) temps are 135. Last two years in a row. I'm trying to do what I can to run what I have without stepping backwards.

Nobody really knows that for the S1. Beause nobody has really done the things INTENSE and ZZP have done for the S2. That'* why I'm doing it.

I'm not sure it'll be ready for WCBF, but I'll do what I can.

Well don't rush it (not that you would) but if you DO have it done someone better be taking video of that run! you do some sweet things to that car.

It'* wired in.

The fan override works. This means we don't have to run a wire through the firewall for it any more. 92-95 cars can go straight to the PCM. It'* the easiest connector to get to without removing the PCM.

Estat (160) mode works great. Scantool sees about 25F added to the coolant temp when I throw the switch.

Timing advance (happy ****) responds as expected on the scantool, but is very sensitive. I need to make a Potentiometer change. I'll probably go with a 10k pot and another resistor in series, but it does respond. Timing testing should commence this weekend.
