To be honest in 5th gear at that sort of revs these cars don't tend to like being up there that much.
It would be cool !! Take 7000rpm in 4th gear without problem (200-210kmh) and take 230-240kmh in 5th gear !!!!! :twisted:  :twisted:  :twisted:

But with our heads of shit......... :evil:  :lol:

Yes, I drove yesterday, in 4th gear at 6500rpm and in 5th at 6000rpm I listen pinking/detonation (with stetoscope) ! And I looked the AFR, and it rises up 12/12.5..... before I've 11/11.5 ! I think I empty the carb.....

I will try with a little pump and big needle valve, otherwise I will try with few degrees of retard on my renix 209

Thank you :wink: !

Yes, ok with an AFR !! I've an AFR gauge .. the ZEITRONIX ZT-2 ! :wink:

I've 11.5 all the time, and sometimes 11 @17/18psi, and when I listen pinking/det in 5th gear I stop immediatly and the afr is always under 12, but it looks like it rises gradually (maybe like a carb emptying).

I've 8:1 in comp, a turbo KKK k16 (bigger than a T25),my renix 209 (tested with the box renix "rx3" Renault) and standard sensor is ok , and I've an alloy intercooler double capacity :(  (maybe here the problem !! poor intercooler in 5th gear at 6000rpm!! I don't have display for the intake temperature, but soon!), and soon also an intercooler water that I would put just after my intercooler, WITH my current intercooler ! .................... :roll:

Are you monitoring your fuel when at that revs in 5th gear?
No, How to do?

Your engine dettinating may not be donw to carb emptying, could be other factors mate.
Yes, I don't know.. What others factors there may be?

To be honest mate i would stay with the larger fuel pump and keep the needle jet smaller, i find it works alot better that way  :wink:
Ok thanks.. ! I thought the opposite .. It was best with big needle valve and little fuel pump !

I've pinking detonation after approximatively 6000rpm in 5 .. I thought I emptied the carb, but only in the fifth, after 5800/5900/6000rpm..... :roll:

Yes, it's exactly that !!

I will try to put a standard fuel pump with a needle valve 2mm, if it's not ok, I will try with needle valve 1.8mm..


I found !!

A needle valve of 2 or 2.5mm with a big fuel pump -> big holes ! With a standard fuel pump gt turbo, perfect.. ! It seems that a big needle valve and a big fuel pump doesn't work ! But a big needle valve and a standard fuel pump, it's ok ! :wink:

What is your fuel pump (those who use a needle valve of 2mm) ? Me, I've a fuel pump Walbro 255l/h..


Yes ! Before, I had only a needle valve of 2.5mm ... and I thought the problem was there ! Needle valve too big ! So, I've put a standard needle valve of 1.7mm and then no problem ....... I then ordered a needle valve of 2mm, I put him and I've the same holes than with a needle valve of 2.5mm ! With a 1.7mm, perfect !

You think there is not sealing properly? Because, when I drive slowly 2500/3000rpm / 50/60mph .. no problem ! There is holes only when I accelerate strong..

Hi !

On my carb:

-venturi 25mm standard
-main jet 1.2
-a/c 1.0mm
-1st stage 1.0mm
-2nd stage 1.5mm

I've holes after each long loads.......... each speed, as a "cut of ignition" during a big second, the gtt "stifles" ! I've test with needle valve 2.5mm and 2mm .. always the same prob, with a 1.7mm standard, perfect ! :|  :|

I took a long time before finding that it came from there, because for me there is no "relation" between a needle valve and a hole when I accelerate !

(I change JUST the needle valve !)

A friend who have put a needle valve of 2.5mm, same prob ! He put the 1.7mm standard and perfect .. !

Who has already had the same problem?!

Thank you. :wink:

Yes James, because in this moment, I don't like very well !! I've put 21 psi, but I've sometimes few pinging/detonation, it's limit ..

A little video yesterday VS a Cosworth 340hp !

-Big Garrett T34

-K16 @20psi (and only 17psi in high rpm ! fucking waste-gate!!!)
