Thread: Terminator EFI Question

  1. #1

    Default Terminator EFI Question

    In April when the Terminator EFI comes to market, I plan on getting it for my LQ9 project. I have a performer RPM carb intake on the engine, and I'm thinking about installing my plate nitrous system under the TBI, and cap off the fuel rail and just use the plate as a dry 150 shot. Will the self learning ECU be quick enough to enrich for the nitrous, or do I need to laptop tune, and use the ECU to trigger the nitrous, and timing retard. Would it be better to use the plate as a wet system?

    I was also wondering how well the Terminator TBI will work, as the MPFI injectors it uses, won't have the MPFI intended spray pattern, but instead will rely on the conical rings in the TBI for atomization. Thank you.

    Yes, the ECU is quick enough to enrich the fuel for dry N2O.
    Yes, you'll need to laptop program the N2O system (See Nitrous Oxide ICF).
    The fuel table needs to be well tuned before using N2O, because the N2O Added Fuel Enrichment is adding to the Base Fuel Table (whatever tune it's in).

    The Terminator's MPFI injectors don't spray directly into the engine, so their spray pattern doesn't matter.
    The annular discharge fuel rings are responsible for the "spray pattern" (fuel entering the engine).

    Thank you for the quick response. I bet Holley is really doing their homework on the Terminator TB.
    It is much prettier than the Avenger TB, and I hope it performs as good as it looks.

    I learned on this forum, that up until now, the best way for a TBI to squirt fuel, is above, and straight down on the throttle plates.
