Thanks

Cost $200 + 12.50 for shipping. It may also be cheaper (and I think it will be).

The benefits will be the same as LH2.4, although the adaptability will not be as great as LH2.4.

But I guess all LH2.2 users already know that you have to do some tricks to install bigger injectors etc. not to run too rich at idle and stuff like that.

Cheat. Use a LH3.1 throttle body/TPS.

edit: by "cheat" I mean add the stuff you need and cheat it up right.

Yep, thats an easy thing or you can use one of the new other accel based enrichment schemes....

I bet you could fit the guts of a 850 TPS inside a lh2.2 TPS or earlier

Or put a TPS on the pedal,

potentiometers should not be a stumbling block

lol there are a few here in cali that are cali spec cars

ask around and look around the boards it has been mentioned once or twice about 85' 240 turbos getting 2.2... something like the last 100 made or something got it as volvo eitehr ran out of k-jet parts and had all of the 740 2.2 turbo stuff laying around

same reason you see a few rare 88' 740 n/a's with LH 2.4

i'm highly interested.
between a 5 bar fuel regulator and injectors AND this chip - i think lh2.2 has opportunities.

Well i took apart two spare #541 2.2 boxes i had lying around and was surprised to find HUGE differences between two of the "same" ECU's.. ANd amazingly enough one even looks liek it could be chipped.. unless it already has been.. but i really have no idea..
Here are some pics:

Just wanted to say I would also be interested in a chip for my 2.2. I have a 541 box but i've never taken it apart. (it's my daily driver). Right now I'm running a 60 trim T3, 90+ manifold, 3" exhaust, ipd turbo cam and gear and MBC@ 8psi. Brown tops in waiting and looking for an NPR intercooler. Would there be any benefits for me?

Thanks,
Scott

Yes, since you are running better comnponents than stock, then I guess that the chip will do a lot for you.

You have been added to the list.

BTW: We are really close now. Only a few days left until testing.

After the chip, what would have to be done?

Set your base timing as high as possible without ping at 14psi and then back off a degree or two.

If you have done other mods like injectors and stuff, then do the AMM trick again.

Some small mods are always required, at least on LH2.2.

I have brown tops that I haven't installed yet. If you don't mind me asking, what is the AMM trick?
