I was measuring temperatures in city, which show position x
(see following row for x position)
> > 60 C | x 130C
Earlier I have had constant 90C (ticker 1) positions in city.
The measuring probe is right in the Pump and I think that the tems in
Turbo are much higher or what do you think ?
The reason for wondering is, that I converted 200 20V 3B engine
ECU system into AAN/ADU ECU (and some HW changes also)
and now everything unfamiliar rings my bells and
is worth for thinking about. If anyone is interesteed in this pervert
I have www-pages for it.
Thanks for all comments.
