PCV on 06' 100ci?
I apologize if this has already been asked but I can't search on the forums very well from my phone.
Im in the midst of a turbo build, trying to decide on an EMS. I was almost dead set on going with microsquirt, which is basically a mini megasquirt. I like the idea because i will have full fuel and ignition control. i just realized tonight though that the PCV can control (modify) ignition timing +\- 20 DEG after 2500 rpm. Anyway, why doesnt this work on an open loop bike like my 06? all it does is intercept coil firing and injector firing signals and make them longer or at a higher frequency in the case of the ignition (I think).
Why then could i not make it work on my bike? Is it connectors or is there some other prohibitive thing about the older bikes that keeps us from using the pcv? Is the pcv just smarter than i think? Maybe it looks at the crank sensor, tps, map, etc and does not just act as a "dumb" device?
