Well today I received the ATK LDK engine that I purchased for $1,900. I paid for it on Monday of this week and Tuesday I got a text message from R+L Shipping Co to schedule a delivery, with Wednesday being the first option. The engine was crated up really well.
I also bought a JNR cam with the 20% increase in the fuel lobe.
The engine came with Opel injectors which are e85 compliant.
So....I have the cam and I have the injectors, which seem to be the two common things that are needed to run an e85 tune.
Does anyone know what bolts are TTY when changing the cam/removing timing chain cover? Is the flywheel bolt? I saw that the cam gear is TTY as well as a timing chain tensioner, but are there any others?
For those that are HPTuner Savy:
I have an idea how it works after quite a bit of research but I'm still a little fuzzy on things.
The MPVI2 is $299 and credits are $50 each - do I need anything else?
PAW Dave will do a tune for $375 via HPTuner. I know I have to tune the car to work with the Opel injectors that the engine came with, prior to running the engine. @raygun
you mentioned that you may have numbers to plug in to support this. How does that work? By purchasing credits does that mean that I can adjust all the numbers that I want and then save them when I'm done and then I get to keep that one particular tune file? Can I load and unload as many tunes as I want to purchase? I really would like to datalog since I live at elevation with 91 being the highest octane (not counting e85's increased octane trickery) and then have someone look and tell me what to do, which is precisely what Dave would do - would it be better to defer to the strong HPTuner forum members instead?
I wish I was dropping an LS engine in, instead of a LDK =(
