Hello,

Part way through my engine buildand have managed to secure a Power FC D-jetro.

Now I want to reduce the engine loom down and get rid of as much as possible.

I know that I can get rid of the mafs, all the a/c stuff (not running this), but what else can I get rid of???

Cheers

John

Are you asking what parts you can throw out when fitting a PFC D-Jetro or are you asking what parts you can kick generally?

With the D-Jetro it's the MAFs that you can ditch incl everything related to them.

Generally there lots more thing though that you can kick to save weight etc. Things like A/C, Hicas (especially in your case this will help a lot as you have an R32 which has hydraulic Hicas = lots of weight!), carbon canister, etc.

Both in some ways lol

already lost hicas, a/c, abs and cabon canister.

Just what to see what wiring to engine (if any) i can loose, ie sensors not used.

I heard there is a verirable fuel injection on them??? Can i loose this??
Also all the idle control bits?

Cheers for the info

What do you mean by "verirable fuel injection"?

Surely you'd want to keep this?

I'm not sure what you're talking about though; injectors are controlled by the ECU. Fuel pressure (controlled by the fuel pressure regulator, funnily enough) increases with boost level I believe. Both systems are worth keeping...

Who've you heard about this from? Ask them to explain!

ps the weight of wires and sensors can't be that much, surely? You'd save as much by taking a dump before driving, or wearing a t-shirt rather than a jumper.

He is referring to the variable speed controller for the fuel pump.
Normally bypassed especially if aftermarket pump is used as not compatible and they tend to dry joint and cause problems.

Aaah, I see. Yeah, ditch that by providing a proper earth for the pump.
