KB good for word on pulley...Arrived today.
So a few bumps along the way but very happy with the final outcome and KB,s attention to service and customer support overall.
Extremely happy with the finished install both looks wise and performance wise.
Now how long can I resist the temptation to install that smaller pulley....time will tell.
Hi Rick,Congratulations Phil!
This has my attention.
"Inspections of catch can so far only show light film, barely worth cleaning so initial indication is KB's new oil seperator system is an improvement on the old design."
Do you have the UPR catch can in-line after the KB's catch can? And the UPR is basically dry????
The new KB is self-draining, correct?
I would appreciate it if you could attach a few close-up's of the new KB can from a few angles. If it works that well - I am going to have to get one of those!
Hi,Mr. Phil I'm assuming you are running that on top of a complete stock engine and tranny yes/no...? Forgive me if you have already answered that or posted same ?
The outlet stem from the seperator contains the fine mesh screen and small hole, appears similar in concept to Mr Norms developed system.Thanks Phil.
I got in touch with KB and he sent me the installation instructions for the new oil separator/PCV Valve, with photos.
If you can: Please unscrew the PCV Valve on top of it and take a photo of the inside - straight down.
It looks in their photo like it is a straight shot right through it. I don't see any media/mesh/screen material, or anything that would actually perform the function of separating the oil out of the oil vapor. Do you see something inside it that I don't see?
Well it has been a while since any updates, I had not been able to use the site for many months due to the site not liking my IP address for some reason....don't know why but back now!
Car still running great no issues with KB's tune ect but I have found/pushed to the limit on their tune for boost and oct.
@9.25 peak boost 93 0ct fuel = 0 ST KN
@10.5 peak boost 93 Oct fuel = 4/5 degrees ST KN (datalogged on 1/4 mile drag event, consistent every run) this did not translate to any LT KN but I assume would eventually and is a good sign I have reached limit on 93 oct value.
Moving forward I am going to use the 9.25 pulley/93 oct as my everyday tune.
Maybe in summer 10.5psi pulley with Lucas octane booster (yet to test if sorts out the 4/5 ST KN) or + meth inj to suit.
Currently installing AEM Wideband/Meth Inj/ Pulley to put me @12/13psi range then custom tune for Drag events. (over 6mths away now as entering our aut/winter.
Recent event at airstrip no burnout no track prep event so times were not great (best high 13 sec)
Challenging (pun intended) to get traction, non existent in 1st, almost non existent in 2nd, ocasional appearance in 3rd,
Only managed one run where I got the throttle input right to only briefly loose traction on the 2-3 shift and was full throttle input by 85mph resulted in ET 119mph so shows some promise.
Ordered 305/20/35 ET SS Streets for next attempt.
Inspections of catch can so far only show light film, barely worth cleaning so initial indication is KB's new oil seperator system is an improvement on the old design.
Yeh.... I drool a bit just looking at the track prep in the States watching Cletus and his mates!I thought you were going to say at Meremere, just as rubbish without prep, no way to match US times!
