I recently got hte idea of running an alky setup on my car from a user on here called turbojeep.. sounds like a good idea. I just rebuilt my 2.2 T1 using stock, but ported, T1 manifolds, an FM cam, 789 head, 0.020" overbore, new cast pistons, have high volume oil and fuel pumps, mopar perf computer from an '86 w/dostributor to match.
My problem is detonation,, right now I know the stock injectors are too small and probably worn out, so a larger set (36/hr) and an adj regulator are on the way,, but I've got a feeling I'm still gonna have detonation,, the old stock turbocharger makes boost like crazy with the ported manifolds and cam,, easily hits the computer shutoff point around 15 psi
,,, and once everything is warmed up,, i can hear detonation as early as around -10 psi
Would an alky kit help cool things down enuff in the combustion chamber to help this? Has anybody set one up on a T1 with the log manifold? I'd love to see some pics of somebodies setup if they have. And finally,, anybody know if there's a company out there that already has a "kit" setup and ready to go for our cars?
Thanks for any replies
