So what are these for anyway?? Cold start enrichment via the single injector & throttle bipass?? Seems a rather convoluted series of pipes etc to achieve a simple goal....

Well this certainly isnít a cheap exercise!! Including injectors,manifold, extractors, exhaust, ECU, pulse wheel, coil packs, O2 sensor and airbox, there wonít be much change from $10-$15K!! And thatís NA not SC or turbo....

I must be mad but hopefully Iíll get the investment back in the years that follow!

Interesting that I just noticed the RHS cylinder head coolant passage is blocked by the inlet manifold at the rear. On the LR the head passage goes into the heater core but on the RHS the heater is connected to a pipe leading to the top of the block. Could this mean that the cylinder head could get too hot on the RR in the vicinity of #4??? Is there a history of blowing head gaskets in this area?

Interesting that I can’t find a pulse wheel unless I go full serpentine drive. Or get my own made.... A flywheel pulse generator would be more accurate but cost more and be more of a PITA since the trans must be removed.

Thanks I’ll look into that and what the ECU requires for optimum signal...

Elbe seem to have the correct trigger wheels (without serpentine drive), so hopefully I can purchase one separately...
