    Re: Woosh from brake booster

    I thought the same about mine. It's way louder than my shadow, but stops just fine.

    Re: 1987 csx stumble

    Not that I'm going to pursue this further, because it doesn't add to the thread, but this charged properly. On the gauge, using a dvom, on the scan tool, it hit the target and kept the battery...

    Re: 1987 csx stumble

    Miles, I know 5 digits history in this community. I guess I wasn't clear enough in my question. I want to know if this failure and symptoms are normal, instead of the failure to charge.

    Re: 1987 csx stumble

    5digits, I've seen many voltage regulators fail to charge, but this causing a miss fire is new to me. Do you think it's really just a faulty soldier connection?

    Re: 1987 csx stumble

    Good to know standard has re-opened! I picked up a used PM today and I'll install it tomorrow, but keep the bypass switch just in case. I'll keep this updated over the next couple days.

    Re: 1987 csx stumble

    When acting up, the o2 cycles as expected on the drb2. I went after the source and went after the field coil part of the alternator. Basically,I removed the fan for access and wired in an interrupter...

    Re: 1987 csx stumble

    Miles, I never actually removed the wires for the field coil, I disconnected the main output wire. I should put it back to stock for diagnostic purposes. Maybe wire in a toggle switch for diagnostics...

    Re: 1987 csx stumble

    Just when I thought I was on the right track,..... I'm stumped again.

    Yesterday, I changed the alternator with a known good unit and it seemed ok, so I parked it for the night.

    Today I made...

    Re: 1987 csx stumble

    A little update from today. It ran poorly on the way to work, but it could maintain the proper speed, so I put little thought toward it. On the way home, it was at it's worst, barely capable of...

    Re: 1987 csx stumble

    I just realized that I only looked at the plugs, I didn't see an issue and didn't change them to known good units, so I just went out and did that.

    Re: 1987 csx stumble

    Good thought. That alternator is new as of last summer, so anything is possible. It hits the charging voltage target of 14.2V. How could I test that? I was trying to make a fuel pressure gauge, but...

    Wouldn't the plenum volume technically be all the way to the turbo under WOT conditions?

    So we agree the air filter to turbo pipe should be as large as you can fit all while keeping the airflow smooth and cold?
