ignition sensor wire switch any good?
« on: 20:07, Tue 20 November 2012 »
I'm in doubt of switching the wires of the ignition sensor, i read some about it and also all the cup cars had this done, so should i? or has this got any negative sides?

what purpose  has the second connection on the actuator of an original T2 turbo?  i know its connected true that weird pipe comming from the ex elbow,  does it slow down the spoolup of the turbo so it doesnt kick in so hard? cause for all day driving i like a smooth turbo, cause mine kicks in So f*ckin hard ( its a stage 1 turbo technics, so also small :-) )

I personally never swap the wires on the tdc round, if you do it  gives the igniton 4degs of advance

The back port on the actuator gives pressure to the back of the actuator so it helps hold it shut, i have seen cars do the cup mod and loose boost but gain it back when revert to the standard actuator pipework set up, for me i would leave it along whe using a twin port actuator.
You won't loose power or response leaving it standard
