Re: TBI information
That'll be interesting -
The TBI engine has the AIR - air injection - into the manifold. It only injects air at certain times, but it's important for proper computer operation.
The computer "sees" the oxygen content in the downpipe AFTER the extra oxygen is added by the AIR. It's been programmed to compensate for that. All the components that have been suggested to be tossed work together as a "system."
Without the extra oxygen added by the AIR the computer will lean it out till it gets the expected amount of O2 in the downpipe - causing the engine to run super lean!
Warm-up will be near impossible, running will be terrible too. Codes will set, when it goes into "backup mode" even timing advance will stop working. You'll get just a set timing and a set amount of fuel.
Then the next post about it won't tell us how it got like that, but it'll want to know how to richen it.
Best to keep the new engine all together like it came unless you really know how to redesign the entire system.
That includes pump, injection tubes, EGR etc.
Or put a carb on it.
Kinda like saying kidneys and bladder make you pi--, so if you remove them you won't have to anymore.
