Forced Induction Turbo Installed, Black Plugs And Fuel Smell...

  1. Yes, with ngk the higher number equals colder plug. The more cylinder pressure the colder the plug needs to be.

    Your Bov is more than likely your running rich problem. This needs to be recirculated to a point down stream of the maf on a car still equipped with a maf. All of the air that is taken into the engine is accounted for by your maf. When you vent some of the air it has already been accounted for by the computer which fuels your engine accordingly. So now you have less air going to the motor and more fuel. In essence you make a wot pass down the strip, top of the track your throttle blade closes and bov opens venting the excess pressure. The air that you were ingesting into the motor was counted and you're still fueling the motor as if it's ingesting all of that air. This leads to fouled plugs and a rich condition every time. The a/f will look good on accell but will go pig fat on decell. I hope my explanation makes sense, if not let me know.

    Sharp looking setup you have there, btw.
     
  2. Ok, great. Guess i'd better start reading up on how others piped the bov in! So just to clarify, it should be plumbed in after the maf and before the throttle body, correct?
     
  3. Why can't the bov be before the maf? Then it would be venting unmetered air.
     
  4. actually not, as it was already entered into the system pre maf
     

  5. Damn, I guess you need them with that much boost?

  6. Exactly!

    I modify that general rule of thumb personally.
    -8 All motor
    -9 Boost up to 12lbs or Nitrous up to 150
    -10 Everything else

    I know a lot of guys that run the -8's and -9's in other stuff and have no trouble. We just switched my buddy from autolights to -10's is a stock block 302 tfs top and 175 shot and he just made his best passes ever. 1.47 60' and 10.79 We pull #1 on his every pass to check a plug and these burn so much nicer than the autolights he was running before.

    How was the new tune you got from willie?
     
  7. Got the tune loaded, but not ran yet, fricken rain here...
     
  8. NGK has a great tech line. Call them I always call them any time I have a question on the more nontraditional stuff. They will ask for compression ratio and boost and recommend a plug and gap.

  9. yeah running rich for sure I would go with the -10's and get some time on the dyno with an extra set or two of plugs.

    my a/f looks good on accel, and goes lean as expected on decell. Im installing new plugs this evening and will do some datalogs
     
  11. I would be interested to see one of your data logs if you don't mind sending me one.
     
  12. I'll be installing new plugs today and will take a few datalogs with the updated tune.
