Hi Andy, forgot to mention this: Because there are a lot of Opel minded visitors on the "400meet" the parking of their cars is also a "Opel meeting":

So you are always welcome!

Nevertheless my spine is very bad I went to the meeting with my "400", I promised the organiser of the event I would go. Ofcourse there was some minor work on the car. When I drove the car out his garage I noticed a trail of feul. The feul line on the filter leaked but after tighting the hoseclamps (all could have some) the problem was solved. I remember those feul-lines are rather new so would it be cause of the ethanol??

Some pics of the event:

If you a need 5-bolt rebuild set, brake conversion or overhaul a rear axle, the place to be:

The whole day all the cars were valuated by a jury, and I was happy to get the third price. The second was the great looking silver Manta, the owner showed me the pics of the restoration of the car and he earned that price. The first was the Ascona 400R that came just back from the body-shop, the owner uses that car for rally so we hope next time it will look as nice as last weekend:

Thanks for the pics.

Do you know what management was that Redtop running with no air flow meter?

Some very nice Car Porn to look at and looks like a great event. :thumbup

Not been able to work on my car due to knee surgery 15 months ago and still can't kneel down (maybe never again 😥) but I am getting strength back in my knees with physio and acupuncture.

I have bought a new 400 kit for my car from the original Irmscher moulds so hope to get it fitted next year. 

I hope to visit events like these in Europe, once I get my car back in to working condition and stable running.

Hi Jess, if you scroll a few pics up you will see the engine-bay of that car photographed from the other side.  Than you can see there is a air mass meter (?) of the later version with that heat wire. Don't know how they name it in English but we make a difference between the old type (L& LE) with that alu house and that flap that turns inside... So it looks factory made. 

I'v got the same idea as you, I want to make a conversion on my "400" cause that old L-jetronic keeps some horses away. Want to keep the old look and install a programmable ECU with Map-sensor, wide band lamba, triggerwheel etc. But keeping a dummy house of that air-flow meter (without insides) and distributor.  Saw that once in a Kadett-C rally, love oldscool😁

Thanks, missed it in my excitement. Yeah LE was a very simplistic management for its day, and changing to fully mapped sequential will definitely release a few more horses.

I will obviously keep my thread updated once I start with the XE and MS2 journey . I might even put it into its own thread as that way it might help others making the transition. With closed loop wide-band lambda it should be virtually self tuning.

Hey Herman

After a failed attempt with the Webcon Alpha system on my A series im fitting the Omex 600 ECU. Looks very good and you can buy a bare loom and fit just the connectors you need to it so no extra wires in the engine bay and you can get the loom nice and tidy, runs all the stuff you mention and they have some good install info on their site. im told its based on the Gems architecture so can be tuned by most places. I should have mine in the next day or two so i will be adding all the info to my blog as i go along, so it might be of interest to you 🙂

Thanks Andy, will be interesting reading :)

 

Omex and loom turned up today, well happy as i can now crack on with it, but a little bit poorer! :-)

So the plan, mount the ECU under the glovebox, hole through the bulk head and then start to run the loom to the various connectors, but this time i can get it just as i want it and wrapped up along with the engine bay loom. I had to buy new water temp and air temp stats to go with the Omex as they said it was best to be on the safe side so i knew the Omex as reading them correctly. Im ok with the current lambada sensor. I will take pics and write up as much as i can as i go along and add to my blog. i will also pop on links for any pats i buy for it as its always helpful for people to know where to get  bits. Will need a bulkhead gromet so will measure loom and work out the best size.

Does it use a wide-band lambda?

yup I bet you are a bit poorer, they are a little more than MS2, not that it matters if it’s a better option 👍

From their site.

The ECU can use an input of narrowband or wideband (with external adaptor) lambda to make constant trims to the fuelling for best emissions and fuel economy without affecting ultimate power.

according to Troy at Northampton Motorsport is suppose to be very easy to setup and he said they can do screen sharing to show you setup and help you with the mapping if you get it from them. Did me a good deal as i had the car setup there and will be going back for final tune.
