2020 Outlander 450
Ill take a pic when I get home and this is probably a good time to ask this question as well since Ive been wondering. I made the quick disconnect with parts I had at home from pneumatic quick disconnect fittings. I figured if it leaked or gas caused it to go bad I would remove but so far it hasnt leaked a drop and to be safe whenever I pop the gauge on it I full the fuse for the fuel pump and depressurize. I've been busy this morning but now I have a little time for a better update.I know but a good chance I'll get an efi in the future so be good to know about it
Wednesday night I blew out the vent lines, cleaned the radiator very well, did the leak down and was good, did a compression test the day before (dont know what the number should be since that info is non existent but i think its good), fuel pressure had previously been tested twice on different days at 51/52 psi, cleaned out the injector had plenty of carb cleaner spraying in an x pattern, checked all connections for wiring and hoses, double checked air box and snorkels for obstructions, etc. Last night I took it down the road with the only changes from the night before being vent lines blown out and radiator that was super clogged cleaned out. The first run felt marginally better especially down low it seemed like it had more power taking off but still just lull'ed at 5500 and up. Even though if felt better down low, it wasnt so much better that I couldnt say it was all in my head. Pulled it back in and wrote down the settings Bom set the controller to and checked the plug and it was dry as usual. Taking a shot in the dark I adjusted the WOT and raised it 2, then lowered the transition to WOT down to 2 (i think). This time it felt alot more normal down low and still lull'd out at 5500 or so but seemed like from there it gradually increased alot more quickly to 6500 and in the mid to upper 40s than before. Took it back and pulled the plug and it was dry around the electrodes but the top thread had fuel/ carbon around it.
That is where I left off I didnt have time to keep going with it, but Im still lost.
