Borrow A Tps


Recommended Posts

any in the SE suburbs available to borrow a TPS for 5mins to check out my car?

Have a problem with the car not revving past 2000rpm & have changed the AFM (Z32) and now suspecting its the TPS..

if the TPS was toast id expect your idle would be pretty ordinary or it would idle peg at like 1100rpm constant

how does it idle

the engine check light would also be on for f**ked tps

there is no rev cut that im aware of for dead TPS, but there is for dead AFM, it caps at 2500rpm

I had a look at it last night for him, its a z32, I tried the solder fix, no good. I swapped it for another z32, still no good. Perhaps they were both dead? I cleaned the plugs etc but the ecutalk was showing a good afm voltage output so we looked elsewhere for the source of the limp mode. Do you know anyone with another z32 to try anyway Darren? Otherwise you may need to get the wiring checked.

We noticed the tps on the ecu talk wont drop below 2.3v, shouldn't it be set to .47 or so at idle? The idle isn't very good either...

One other thing, the 2k rev cut only seems to happen when its at operating temp.

Unfortunately I dont know of anyone with a spare Z32 AFM to swap & check.

But if anyone reads this and is willing to let me test this out for 10mins I would be very gratefull..

I live in Cranbourne.

The idle has always been a little high & I need to cleen my AAC as sometimes it gets upwards of 1800 or so (another problem)

Damm Brett, would of been over there if only I had seen your post.

Thanks anyway for the offer though mate as I just just picked up both AFM & TPS.

Now when i went for a drive and fanged it to warm it up to operating temp 80degrees or so and its now not doing the 2000rpm cut WTF?

I at least have these spares now so that when it starts i can change one at a time to see if it fixes the fault

Does anyone know exactly the operating voltage for the z32 AFM & TPS for Ign, Idle & WOT (R33 GTST SERIES II)

get the service manual and look it up .... ?

TPS at idle (or closed throttle) should be 0.35 ish v to around 0.40ish volts. if you are seeing 2.3v at idle or (closed throttle) your sensor is f**ked or throttle body isnt closed properly

AFM at idle for standrd AFM or z32 should be around 1.1v ish give or take.

be sure to note, with IGN on, but not engine running, AFM (regarless) should be 0.5v ish

TPS should be 0.33v ish.

with engine running at idle, AFM should climb to 1.1v instantly and TPS should be the same unitl you press the accel pedal

    • I don't have a Stagea but what I've found after a quick search is that the S14 Silvia "winkers" (as they call them in Japan) do indeed fit the 260RS Autech, but are a little more 'curved' in appearance. I'm sure you've seen this already but it seems that the S14 winkers are easier to get. There were companies like KT Project who made aftermarket clear winkers for the Stagea (pre-facelift) but they are gone now and pop up on Yahoo auctions from time to time. Maybe someone else has the genuine ones? I couldn't come up with anything at the moment for sale.
    • Got quoted £50 per knuckle to vapor hone them, so bought a sand blasting cabinet and did it myself  Pretty happy with the first attempt  I didn't get a before picture, I was too excited to use my new toy  The knuckle was pretty much black though when I started
    • Sounds like all you want is a button on your CAN dash pad that is for 2-step / anti lag launch.  Hold the button down, rev limit gets set to whatever you want, say 5000 rpm. Then mass timing is pulled and a heap of fuel is dumped in for fun times. Want more bangs and flames, pull more timing or add more fuel or both lol.  Obviously the more you use the fun button, the shorter the life of the entire hot side of your motor. So valves, turbo, cat, any sensors in the exhaust, etc etc. Well, if you are using it for its intended purpose it is very rewarding. If you are at the drags and want to launch on full boost, how else are you going to do that?
    • Engines are expensive. You already mentioned having thermal management issues with your car, anti-lag dramatically raises EGTs and can easily damage a cylinder head. If your goal is actually to improve transient response I recommend VCAM. DBW can also help here. Instead of a simple mapping of accelerator pedal position to throttle opening instead you interpret the accelerator pedal as a certain torque/power request and the throttle will open more or less to achieve that. So if your desired acceleration requires getting 0.5 bar of boost the throttle will silently go wide open to spool the turbos, then as it gets to that target intake manifold pressure it will adjust the throttle back to the steady state target. Another trick you can play is detecting when a shift is happening using a strain gauge and clutch switch for example and rather than snap the throttle shut when the accelerator pedal closes you cut fuel injection and hang the throttle open to keep the turbo from slowing down. This is a pretty complicated trick to play though as if it got stuck in that logic you would have engine runaway and you want to make sure the engine RPMs actually fall at a reasonable rate instead of rev hanging badly.
