According to Mr DTA these were fitted to Audi's and Ford's, however the Ford part seems to vary (not always Bosch). To be honest you can actually use the XE's idle valve (virtually the same as the part above), you just have to restrict it quite a bit - you'll have to try different pipe bores until you find one that works, unless you get your ECU upgraded to V29 which supports throttling of the valve in software.
When I started messing around with the XE valve I found it hard to restrict it enough that the idle was normal but gave around 1500rpm when fully open. I do have a Ford one that I'm playing about with at the moment with better results, I'm sending the ECU off next week - the new f/w supports fuelling under idle valve control too.
Let me know how you get on, could do with a hand!!
Yeah there are a few bits that are certainly useful....you still need the idle valve though, what I meant was that it will add additional fuel as it bleeds in air from the idle valve to stop the mixture going lean.
I'm not sure about the crank sensor - Velos did mine. The ECU only takes two inputs though Sensor +V and Sensor GND, I can have a look for you? Did you d/l the wiring diagram from DTA's website ?
Nah, no need to look on the crank sensor, would be all taped up I guess. The loom we have is for a Ford, and needs the for 2 pin crank connector changing to 3 pin, easy enough. Also a few other little bits doing.
Where you from mate? Do you use the launch control?
Many questions I have...
I can be found in around the depths of Derbyshire, not a bad place for driving by all accounts
Nah no launch control...wouldn't mind a dabble tho!! Might look into it when I've got the idle valve sorted - it can't be that hard eh ? Tell you what, probably get done for leathering it away from junctions all the time.....
Derbyshire's nice. Been MTBing up there a couple of times.
Launch control looks fun. You need the button wiring in and a sensor on an undriven wheel. Got rear disc's to go on Miles' Nova, was hoping they would have the ABS stuff there to use one of them sensors.
Yeah that'll be the stepper motor type, not the big valve PWM type used on the 2 litre models...
Well I looked at a Ka engine for someone the other week, and it had one of the valves I've been playing about with, however these don't have pipe connectors they mate flat to the inlet manifold, so you'd have to get someone to make up a plate with connectors for pipes.
