Supercharged Camira..

Craig and Adam\’s attempt at adding an SC12 to a JE Camira wagon

Progress at last

Posted by superchargedcamira on December 10, 2006

The 2 bar problem has finally been cracked. After playing around with the injector flow rates and the acceleration enrichment, we had a rom that was drivable. It was far from optimisied but it was a start. The inital rom was pumping in way too much fuel during idle but it has given us a starting point. From that we designed a new 2 bar rom taking into account what we had learnt and after testing today, its working very well. Flow rates look good during idle and under driving conditions, as do the map and iac values. The only thing thats not quite right is the deceleration fuel cutoff, which we believe is making the car come close to stalling when you push in and hold the clutch during driving. This should hopefully be easy to fix.

So i guess the best thing about all of this, is that now we get to start trying to fit the SC12 supercharger to the engine block. The plan is to mount it where the air con compressor used to be, but this may require some other changes to get it to fit, such as a smaller width radiator and some custom piping to the intake.

 Finally some decent progress.. stay tuned for the next episode of project supercharged camira.

  1. Woot! Remember to dyno it before you start doing the supercharger mods 🙂

  3. Mark, we have dynoed it a few times a couple months back when we were playing with the AKFL vs AMXY. At this stage with minor adjustments to the base timing (for our custom 1 bar rom tune) it looks like the most we’ve made at the wheels was around 80-85hp atw (~60kw atw). Which is prob about right for a pretty stock thrashed Camira with extractors and hole in the exhaust! haha..
