Re: WOT switch
Okay, if understand you correctly, this would explain the much better cold
weather performance; the only way i am getting fuel enrichment now is when
its triggered by temperature, not the WOT switch. This would also explain
the smoother torque-build up at revs < 3200.
Is the temp-controlled fuel enrichment gradually, or on/off as in the case
with the WOT-switch ?
