Reving The Engine With Timing Lock On


Recommended Posts

Hey all, i recently put an rb25 in my 32, after stuffing around with the wiring i gave up and bought a microtech lt12s with handcontroller and wired it all up, the previous owner was making 350kw off the tune thats on it but had bigger inj, ect, first start it ran rough as and blew a butt load of black smoke, the overall fuel trim was set at -25, i raised it till it idled smoothly ending up at +35%, after i had it running fine i drove it home (did the work at a mates house because he had a shed) when i got home i scrolled threw the controller and saw that the Timing Lock was set to on, i remember reading the microtech site and it said DO NOT REV THE ENGINE WHILE TIMING LOCK IS ON, so now im worried have i done damage??? when i drove it home i babied it, had it set to 6psi and didnt go past 6k revs, as i defently need a tune. Also, anyone know any good microtech tuners in qld? cheers.

Timing lock should only be used to set base timing. Turn it off.

It doesnt sound right because u would be driving around with 15degrees of timing. Would be really lazy down low.

Shouldnt have done any damage.

Turn it off and get a tune
