Newbie Question
Hi to all,
I'm new to this forum and I'm very interested to own one of the EFIE product being sold here. At this time, I'm still collecting information as well as parts that I will be needing to build my own HHO Generator.
My question: Does the potetiometer alone can alter the oxygen sensor signal? (sorry stupid question) Thanks

Hi Mag.

Yes, the pot controls the o2 mixture (however other automotive sensors will also influence it).

There's a week's worth of reading on the first link in my Toyota Sensors link too. FWIW, it's not just for Toyotas.Wink

What he is saying here is that the O2 sensor alone does not control the fuel being supplied to the engine ,for example under full trottle the ECU may go into a pre schedule fuel program and at this point the O2 sensor means nothing and if you have an EFIE installed it will mean nothing also. There are many other sensors that control the fuel supply that it is diffucult to lean out the fuel so that you can supplement your consumpesion with HHO. When you add HHO and lean out fuel ratio your ECU is going to start adjusting like crazy to get your ratio back to the 14:1 ratio like it was programmed to do and there probaly isn't any thing your going to do about it. Hopefully that some day that some body will have a ECU that you can use that will take of all these problems that we are having.

Just a final question before I spend a week of readingBig Grin.
Would you suggest to use EFIE, MAP/MAF Enhacer and CTS signal adjuster all at same time when I install my HHO Gen.
Would the Apexi S-AFC I/II can also acheive this result of leaning the mixture(if the budget is not a problem)? ThanksSmile

You can try but it is not a garuntee, be carefull when you play with all this stuff so that you don't scorch a piston or burn a valve. It would be nice if you would be able to monitor exhaust temp when getting this radicule.
