I know how a progressive works. Just trying to figure out if the percentage chosen for the start of the ramp is actually a percentage of the total tune. Based on Monte's response, it's not.Not how a progressive works, the motor is still getting the 200 shot, the progressive is just basically turning it on and off cycling the solenoids.
Hypothetical numbers! :-D200 shot dont progress
Thanks, Monte. So the percentage chosen for start of the ramp, is that the duty cycle of the solenoid rather than some percentage of the total tune that is in the kit?The jets are the jets and solenoids are open or closed, there is no in between. So a 200hp tune is a 200hp tune. The progressive works by supplying that 200hp tune in short bursts vs a steady flow. So while the shot is the shot, it controls what the motor sees power wise, by cycling the solenoids X amount of times a second. This is also only effective early in the run and at lower rpms. Meaning that if you set your progressive at 50% and make a full pull, it will NOT slow the car down to what it would run with a smaller tune. In fact it will slow the car very little
So removing a programmer and tuning on timing system like msd grid is a better set up ??One thing I don't like about a progressive controller is fuel when activated and shut of doesn't really atomise, worse case scenario is goes into cylinder raising compression causing damage, most likely all good but it's something I hate you just have to watch the accel pump discharge and see initial fuel
isn't properly atomised and yes always been the case but the quest for perfection these little things bug me.
