A while back someone said they used a 10 ohm resister in the center and outer contacts of their
throttle sensor or somthing like that. What does this do? Thanks for any help,Kip

And thanks Chuck Paisi for answering my last question.

I believe the resistor was used in line with the temp sensor. This tricks the ECU into thinking the engine is colder than it really is and thus richening the fuel mixture.

thats what I remember that being about too.

I have also read that you need to put a resistor
inline if you are running a turbo AFM with
non turbo guts inside . That conversion is is supposed to allow 15% more air flow.Sounds good to me although i have not yet tried this mod.
What about adjusting the AFM to react sooner
thus also tricking the ECM to applying
a richer mixture sooner. Please dont go beyond 2 or 3 clicks unless you like black smoke.TOO RICH

GOOD LUCK LOOKING FOR THAT EXTRA

HORSIE!

I took my AFM apart and found that the contacts were not touching the variable resistor for about a quarter inch causing the engine to run too lean on take off and steady at speed. I went from a 500 ohm up to a 1k ohm and finally to a 330 ohm resistor inline with the temp sensor for the ECU (not the temp guage). This cured intake backfire. Don't add something that doesn't need added..
