  4. Raising The Passenger Seat

    Got my height adjustable passenger seat in now. Took longer than I though. Like 4+ hours. Probably due to checking how and where to open up the seat cover to not damage. And getting more small screws that was not on the exploded parts views. Still working on putting all pictures and...

  8. Driving the 4xe, thoughts, info and more!

    If not knocking it will also allow higher turbo boost. Which do give some more power. It will play with both boost and ignition. Ignition is the fastest reacting. Retarded ignition do make fuel consumption worse but it is only momentary. In cold and moist weather knocking may not occur and you...

  10. Driving the 4xe, thoughts, info and more!

    Modern manufacturing do need less of break in but for that last extra performance it do help. I was doing racing for some years and there we had a quick brutal break in. Powerseating. But we also changed piston rings every second race....... The key is not to Rev too high in the beginning...

    From old experience with turbo charged engines in SAABs that was tuned it worked using lower octane rating when it is cold and/or moist. Then it don't knock. Another trick was water injection in manifold as that both lowered temperature and added moisture. And allowed either more power or...
