Hi all - Welcome back for the second time this month!

I apologize for the inconvenience of the site being offline. The site was down for technical reasons, but it didn't help that I was of offline for two weeks (camping and travel). Once I got back, it took a while to get things sorted out. That's resolved, and the site is now back up. Huzzah!

Please take a minute and read the Site News thread I've posted in the General section, and feel free to comment. Thanks!

Several years ago, shortly after we started the Yahoo group that was the predecessor to this forum, a poster named willcipher came up with a method for defeating the 22RTE's fuel cut:


His method, which involved modding the ECU, works -- it does defeat fuel cut. However, as he mentioned in the article it has some unwanted side effects, including advancing the ignition timing. If you choose to go this route, go carefully. You may need a secondary timing retard device, such as an MSD 6BTM to compensate for the increase in timing.

Ugly, but probably worth reading: Jeff's 22R-TE Page
Just sayin': If Ronmar and I both post on the same topic, listen to Ronmar! His answers are typically better and more accurate than mine. Cheesy

I used this mod for my last 86 truck, and it definitely eliminated the FCD. However, it also aggressively advanced the timing to a state of no tune. I used the MSD boost retard 2* per lb., and the results were excellent.

He mentions high and low rpm cut...would ridding the connection for high rpm cut rid the engine of its limiter? I'm planning on drifting with my rte and I like knowing there's a limiter to hit.
