Why you should use a Can Lambda Sensor

Posted by Tony eigenseher on

A CAN LAMBDA sensor, often referred to as an oxygen sensor, measures the level of oxygen in exhaust gases. This level is critical in obtaining the optimal air fuel mixture when tuning an engine. CAN refers to the Controller Area Network which acts as the ‘nervous system’ of a vehicle, enabling communication from one part to another. The lambda calculation determines the ratio between the amount of oxygen actually present in the exhaust compared to the amount that should have been present to obtain perfect combustion.  This air fuel ratio information which the CAN Lambda provides is essential for a tuner. The fuel input, power output and air fuel ratio...

Why do I need an oil catch can?

Posted by Joel Guerra on

The short answer answer is to eliminate crank case pressure. If you have pressure in the crank case (engine block) building up to a point that could potentially slow down the rotating assembly (rods and pistons) wouldn't you want to alleviate that pressure? Yes!  Turbocharger setups benefit from these the most but there’s more than one purpose of having a properly vacated crank case system. Ever notice your turbo has oil coming out from the inlet? The reason for that is usually, if not always, crank case pressure building up and vacating to the path of least resistance, that being the oil...
