Power Cutting out under Full Boost

Recommended Posts

Im getting Power Cut for a split second between 3500/4500 rpm under full throttle. If i wind down the boost (below 15psi) i dont get it but over that i get this power cut. From 5000rpm to redline i dont get it at any boost.

I am thinking its the AFM maxing out, but reading from the SAFC i dont get 100% Air Flow until about 5000prm, so why would it do this below 5000rpm with Air Flow between 80/90%.

Is it Boost Cut, do the Series 1 R33 GTST have boost cut???

Its quite temperamental, sometimes i get it and sometimes i dont but its always in the midrange where boost is at its peak.

Im running a HKS 2530 too.

Well the factory torque peak figure for the rb25det is at 4400rpm (295nm)

Generally where peak torque is, this is where the motors volumetric efficiency is at its greatest (where it can take in maximum air per cycle)

Thats basically what cams do, they move the peak volumetric effiency point around the rev range. And where the rev point that the motor can use maximum air is, you are going to get maximum torque.

So anyway, back to the point, around 4400rpm is where the RB25 cams allow the motor to take in maximum air.

So my guess would be that is why its cutting there. (Thats the point where the motor makes peak torque and uses maximum airflow it can, which must be just tripping the Air Flow meter cut)

You could always get a fuel cut defender, this holds the air flow meter voltage as high as it can without actually cutting.

Some more info on VE here.

And remember if you only get it sometimes, I bet its on the cooler days that it cuts out because the air is more dense. Which will cause the AFM to read more air, naturally.

Yes generally get it on cooler days.

Looks like its time for a Z32

Hey Robo's, I had the same problem too after installing my Profec B. Everybody is either telling me this or that but no one can give me a good solution to this cutting off problem, I paid a visit to one of our tuning shops and the mechanic listened intently to what I had to say then he walks over to my car,popped the hood and unpluged the MAP sensor driving the stock in dash boost meter. Then he said " Now take it for a spin and see if it's still happening" . Took it out gave it a good wallop and NO MORE CUT OFFS! Everytime!

Now I gotto go get me a boost meter.

Where abouts is the map sensor driving the indash boost meter ?

    • OK, so, assuming that there is nothing wrong with either the original or new boost sensor, then it would seem that there might be something wrong in the loom wiring to that sensor. This is troublesome, because if that were true, then you might expect the problem to persist when the sensor was unplugged. But seeing as the voltage comes good when it is unplugged, it would suggest that the fault might (and I stress might) be right at the loom plug. Either that, or the fault might be at the ECU, on the line in from the boost sensor. When you unplug the boost sensor, that input at the ECU is isolated from the TPS sensor and can't affect it. This would be semi-bad, as an ECU problem is never welcome, but at least you'd know where the problem is and it might be fixable, or at least replaceable. Do you have Nistune, or any other way of looking at ECU data? I'd want to drive the car around with the boost sensor unplugged and see the TPS working properly, then not working properly with the sensor plugged back in. You're not trying to run more than ~18 psi either? Right? Because even with Nistune that can be difficult with the boost sensor connected. Just checking, in case it might have some bearing on the issue. It shouldn't cause the voltage situation you're seeing though.
    • Need something reliable, like a Mazda (non-rotary), or a Honda, or a .......... Commodore 🤣, the only issue with my cars is me 🫤
    • Then sell it and buy a BMW! I can totally relate to this (except the money part! ). I think for me I need to remind myself that I do enjoy the process and to stop being so damn impatient and eager to get it done. That just leads to frustration and broken stuff.  Built not bought. Wait.  Fixed, not fought? No ... Definitely fighting things. Definitely not fixed, I give up. Cars are pain.  
    • This week is the McLaren F1 GTR around Le Man.  I have a 3:48 ish I think (from memory) which is 2 secs off silver.  My issue is that I did a heap of the current daily race c around Le Man with the 787B first and switching to the McLaren is hard.
