    6g alternator Holley efi

    So I’ve figured out I have a 6g alternator, and wanted to see if possible to use it with the Holley hp system. I know a lot of folks run a 1 wire alternator, but I’d hate to buy another. Wondering if...

    4r70 cupholder shifter

    I’ve seen a bunch of pictures and have vague information on installing a B&M or hurst style gates shifter in the cupholder location, but wanted to see some more detailed information.

    I used the...

    You are very welcome, glad you got them and so far all is well. Maybe the solution was 16yo genuine motorcraft coils?

    I’d disregard any readings going from one wire to the other on the connector. I’d be slightly concerned with the lack of full battery voltage on the positive wire though. And if it was full voltage,...
  6. Nice find!

    Yea, and I think I found it being that pointy solder joint piercing the heat shrink on #5 coil harness. I didn't see if it was on the negative side of the wire but I have to suspect that it was.

    I thought you noticed the opposite, 10v on negative when plugged To the vampire and 0v with it disconnected?
  9. Any variation coil to coil would be an alarm in...

    Any variation coil to coil would be an alarm in my mindset. Anytime I get a - number, it shows test leads are on the wrong side. Could that be meaning you are getting voltage to the wrong side of the...

    By looking at the ms base table, is dwell set at 3ms minimum? If so, as load increases it would increase dwell time, which is no bueno. Like Ed said additionally heating the primary coil...

    Something on the trigger wire is grounding out causing it to be a completed circuit. Now that it’s “fixed” it’s gonna be pretty darn hard to find unless you were able to jiggle wires and test.
  12. My only concern at this point is if it was able...

    My only concern at this point is if it was able to put out enough spark, with the correlating gap you are running, to keep that beast firing on a shorter dwell?

    Agreed 3ms is about max, which is...

    Exactly Ed. It shouldn’t show a completed circuit at all.

    Last time I tried to find a short I decided to gut every wire on the car and go with a Holley system!

    I’d definitely check signal across both external controllers, or as you said, send them back...
  15. And to add to that... if you are getting a...

    And to add to that... if you are getting a completed circuit at all times.... it’s killing your coils. Basically it’s running non-stop, cooking. Just a thought though, I’m not saying I’m 100% correct.
  16. Something doesn’t seem right, the one wire should...

    Something doesn’t seem right, the one wire should get 12 volts while key is on and the other test lead is grounded. This is an open circuit that fires when the circuit is closed (signal from pcm) on...
  17. I thought the longest you could set the dwell on...

    I thought the longest you could set the dwell on the factory coils was 3ms. That seems a bit hot for everyday like I think Ed is suggesting. Dwell is really the only way to get that hotter spark....

    One aide should show 12v with key on, test ground to it. The other would be hard to test unless you disable fuel and hook up a noid light, it will “flash” when operating normally. You can test...

    One of us will have a running car soon!

    I’d still like to know for a definitive answer what the coil windings resistance in the primary side “should” be. You tested your new ones that were above...

    Ah, gotcha. And of course now that it’s “fixed” it won’t show anything.

    I’ll send you all 8 of mine if you promise not to torch them! 😂

    In all honesty though, I’ve checked the primary and secondary resistance in the Haynes manual and don’t believe this to be a...

    Not sure how your wiring is done, but would it be as simple as to check continuity of the 12v power side of the coil as well as the trigger side? Ideally you’d measure this resistance at the pcm and...

    Already have everything for the Holley. Main reason I went with that system is to get rid of the previously hacked factory wire job that is hopefully the issue I’m blowing the fuses.

    Maxi fuse 26 blowing

    Made a hella pass tonight in the car, until it shut off. Had to tow it back to the trailer and that’s where I found the under hood fuse 26 blown. It’s a 30amp maxi fuse and by the owners manual...

    Is the factory pcm capable of running either of those coils? Just interesting that there is very little plug and play coils, even the msd’s don’t offer spectacular gains in fire. It “seems” simple,...

    The ground strap seems to show it’s in the correct heat range, yes it’s a bit fat on the mixture, maybe just close up gap to .027 and see if she cleans up.

    Reading new plugs

    So, as some of you know, I’ve graduated from baby boost recently and starting to push 20psi. I used to use the tr-6 with lower boost and went with the br7ef when I started turning it up. The last gap...

    4r70w transbrake bumping in

    Hey all, finally got my boost and launching dialed in and going to start actually becoming competitive. I’m running a fmvb with transbrake and because I’m not hitting full launch boost until 4500rpm,...
  34. It doesn’t pull timing, just bleeds off boost,...

    It doesn’t pull timing, just bleeds off boost, but you are correct, if target is 20, having it around 22-23 would be safe. It’s not going to hurt the motor.

    I’m just wondering if my small...

    The warning is maximum boost you don’t want to exceed, it is a psi value. The limiter value is a percentage of how much to retard boost once the warning is hit.

    From my research, the start boost value is actual psi, so I’m thinking if I don’t have a value over 15psi (the spring) it won’t make any more boost.

    The set value may be the reason it’s actually...
