The purpose of this thread is to post the devices that allow you to adjust the engine rpm (for instance, to 2000-3000rpm for demos/competing). Also to discuss ways to adjust the low idle rpm (like from 690 to 800 for example). Also known as: Rev Limiters Idle Adjusters Idle adjustment (ECU programming) Throttle Position Settings *** Some reasons why you might want to do low or high adjustments? Its not just for audio: -journeyman weld trucks -to produce more heat in a cab during winter -demoing/competing -lopey camshaft or engine tuning So, other than using your foot, what electronic program or manual adjuster are you using to set your engine rpm? And/or what are you doing for adjusting daily low range idle?
tboorn posted a topic in Engine and Performance - Anything for that couple extra horses!So i know quite a few of us do it, i mean at higher engine RPM you get a higher amperage output from your alternator, so trying to keep the engine around 1500 rpm while parked, can make a serious difference. But my question is this, is it better on the engine (or is there even a difference) if you were to have it in neutral vs park? Here's where my question originates from, im not a guru on how an engine works or anything but i have some general knowledge, and i seem to remember when i was younger and learning to drive, i was told its not good to rev your engine while stopped, if the car is in park, something about the gears having some hold on them or something i dont really know, i just know i remember learning that and have believed it my whole life (before i got big into car audio and ever saw revving for that reason). But now that i see people everywhere revving while parked, i wonder how many are doing it while in park the whole time, or if any are in neutral with the e-brake on or something, and what effects it could have potentially? sorry for the long post just wanted to make sure i could convey my question properly.
