Cold starting

Has anyone had any cold starting issues with your turbo conversion?

I am going to re-calibrate the ECU to the throttle body and maybe that will help.....just thought I would see if anyone has had that issue and maybe solved it or improved it somehow?

Starts fine in warm temps or after it has started already......just have to do multiple cranks to get it to start up in cold weather.

Re: Cold starting

When people use an after market ECU they have trouble getting them started. I would check the TPS setting.

Re: Cold starting

I am using the off-road turbo ECU and when I originally had the ECU and TPS calibrated, I had to add some idle adjustment so I know the calibration may be off a little bit.

Is it real rich when it starts? The Walbo ECU will add a lot of fuel for the cold temp. Usually too much, just like sea level too much. There isn't much that you can do if the TPS is correct. The option would be to put on a piggyback ECU so you could tune with a lap top.

Re: Cold starting

Hey Jeff. Mine has always been a little tricky on first start.
I just pump the throttle slightly. When it starts to fire . Stop and repeat. Usually takes 2 or 3 short attempts and a little throttle to keep her running for a minute.
Just have to learn and love what your little bitch likes to get her warmed up.
Love her or leave her. Lol. Thecprocess has not changed in 5 years and she fires right up after that all day. Idle adjustment helps a little.

Re: Cold starting

Pilot is right about the piggy back ECU. You should be able to just reach in and turn the key and it should start. If you do the piggyback ECU I can send the program that I have in mine. You would have to tweek it a little for where you live.

We've had good luck with AEM Piggy back unit. They run about $400 to $600. Not easy to install but make tuning easy. You can add or subtract fuel at any rpm and boost plus adjust timing if needed, log runs and control other devices such as methanol injection or NOS.

Re: Cold starting

I agree with AEM Piggy back unit. It will make fine tuning so easy that you can adjust it by your self.
