Re: Dave's Evo X Build

NLTS can be a little tricky at first if you have never used it before,Kracka and schiedes witnessed my first attempt with it. But after some practice, its a very fun mod.

Hmm. It must do ECU-based rev matching, then. It detects the pedal floored and when you touch the clutch it drops the revs enough to match up with the next gear.

It drops the RPM's by a user-set amount. I personally have mine set at 1000. Clutch in at 7500, RPM's drop to 6500; clutch in at 4000, drop to 3000, etc.

I believe 800 is the default, but I generally set it to 1,000 on any car I install Tephra on. It really doesn't matter much since the actual RPM drop is ~1,500 (varies depending on gear of course); you'll only notice if you're a slow shifter. The only time I actually bounce off the limiter is doing a NLTS into 5th gear; I baby 5th so I don't get the common grind so so many people have developed.

Re: Dave's Evo X Build

Well my car goes through 1-4 gears beautifully.

However, last night doing a fifth gear pull (freeway passing)the clutch basically opened up completely, meaning slipped horribly.

It slipped and bounced all the way off the rev limiter. I let it cool down and its back to normal but the new clutch will coming soon now. I was thinking about doing a few things before it because it was holding up great. However I don't want to have to think about it anymore. So new clutch will be coming.

No need to now, well there wasn't. Enough power in fifth to pass. When you are going 80 already, the gearing on the X is such that you are already building boost. So fifth gets used a lot for passing, at least for me.

Re: Dave's Evo X Build

Passing? I'm always in the right lane.

I hate 5th gear...at 45ish it is at a lugging rpm range.

Yeah, that would be a part I would wait for the price to drop on, I can see that thing being about $3-400 in about 2 years

Id rather invest more in my head or even drop ins, rods/pistons, and rev the car out to 8500-9000rpms. Then get taller tires if need be. That way I wouldn't need this.

Re: Dave's Evo X Build

New ACT clutch/flywheel are in at DB (at least I am pretty sure they are, Shane said yesterday or today).

I ordered some new Mits spark plugs, mine looked pretty old when Shane checked them.

I also just ordered the DOM2 wga, its a 20psi one. It seems to hold boost way better, so maybe I can erk out some more power.

Here is a red before and after boost plot using the dom2 actuator.



Very similar to mine, tapers to 26psi ish.

Now with dom2 actuator.


If you look at the new graph, you can see he hits peak power at lot sooner and it won't go up because he has exhaust restriction, he is still on a stock unmodified manifold and 2.75" exhaust. So if he opened that up he would've made quite a bit more power.
