You didn't make a wrong turn per se, but you're looking at too many things at the same time. This thread is supposed to be about ignition timing...setting it, adapting it, whatever. The IQ is separate from the timing. Take some time to read up on IQ, EGR, and MAF...they are three entirely separate topics from the injection timing.Rembrant
As best I understand it the OP says to keep setting the initial timing higher until you aren't getting initial and actual to match, then go back where they are matching. Where did I make a wrong turn?
I tested it as well, and my car was running like a dog, so I didn't even leave it long enough to check MPG. I put it back to stock specs. I believe you really need a proper ECU tune if you want the car to work well without the EGR. Personally, I don't mind cleaning the intake out...I don't see what the big deal is with it. My car runs like a top and gets good MPG with the EGR system intact...I'll deal with cleaning it every now and then.LOL! Yeah, pretty hard to dispute after reading it. For me I'd already "tested" what so many others were promoting.
