Got my T2

Recommended Posts

I picked it up monday night , it was pouring rain while loading it up. I left it on the trailer last night since it was cold ,wet and i didnt feel well. All day at work today all I could think about was getting home and unloading it to take it for a spin. So far we have about 25 miles on it and it came with 5.5 on it. How well does the odomator (sp) work ? How many miles do you guys get to a tank ? I cant wait for our trip for new years

Congrats, have fun, I get about 15 mpg, as high as 20 & as low as 10. The speedo is in mph & kph and is reasonably close, get a gps :P and the odometer is kilometers, not miles. There are some neat and easy mod posted here, but I like my air filter snorkel the most.

Where are at? Can you fill out your profile so the rest of can know a bit about you.

My odometer is in miles and km, one is under the other. what kind of mods are rec first ?

Number 1 and absolute first mod is fill the gas tank and then go empty it. Enjoy it.

I can handle that one, how do you guys compare the trooper to a rhino ride wise ? from my research it seemed like people sold rhinos to get troopers.

I read on another fourm that increasing the fuel pressure to 60 psi and changing plugs makes power. That doesent make sense to me, if it needed to be richened up then it would be lean from the factory , the oly thing I can think it it may allow more timing to be run

I would leave the plugs and fuel preasure alone, I feel the engine improvements will come when the throtle body is changed. Your power always has something to do with fuel mixture. These are smog engines and I don't think chery had hp in mind to the extent that we are thinking about. Someone will do some testing in time and we will have a hp gain just like the other utv's, I would think these engines would get over 100 hp with the right mods which would be great. Puting a different intake system where the engine does not thave to suck the air so far before it gets to the throtlle body i think would help the low end.

I like the idea of going with the correct Iridium plug because the will probably never need changing, I think that's what came in my Yukon and I didn't change them until I had about 90,000 miles. In my youth, it was common for the hot rods to have stacks on the carbs, I kinda thought that maybe the long air intake manifold and maybe the snorkel acted like the old stacks of yesteryear. Anyway, the power I have now is adequate for what I do and don't feel the need to change stuff until others have proven their mods.

I have some ideas about mods later on, I have a buddy @ Aris pistons and could have a nice custom set of pistons built to raise the comp, sending the head to portflow , one the top honda head guys and have the cams reground. As for the intake length i belive that the runner length and pleueum area could see some changes but dont think a short runner is going to build low end

Fast Ferddy has a chip thta is supposed to be good for 15 hp, its $900

I have a alot of friends who I race with and lots of connections , one of them has a dyno shop and I may try to knock the cat out and play with the Fp with a innovative or Fat O2 hooked up and see if there any gains

Ii was talking about the distance from the throtle body to the air cleaner, long runners are for top end, this is not a carb engine , it is injecteed, as far as $900 for 15 hp, that is kind of costly. Knocking out the cat, i have already done that, gives you more on top end but i think the bottom is still flat. This engine is 9.5 to 1 so there is enough compresion to work with, we have no idea what the timing is or what the fuel mixture is. this engine just feels like it is starving for air on the low end. Has anyone pulled the intake of to see if the head and intake are port matched. What i am saying is there are alot of small thing that can be done on these engines before we have to think about going inside the engine and changing parts. It is nice to work with numbers. vilosity stacks were used to speed the air up before it got to the carb venturi for better fuel mixture, this engine is port injected so the fuel is sprayed into each cylinder, if you can get more air into the engine the computer will tell the injectors it needs more fuel.

I agree with flatbed. Engines are all about how much fuel and air you can get into them. The more you put in the more power that comes out . The easiest and least expensive first approaach should be to clean up the air ways into the engine. Any little step the air has to navigate while on it's way into the engine sets up turbulance which hinders flow. Misaligned ports which is very common can cause this. Ideally, a clean one peice smooth tube from air filter to the engine is the best. When racing motorcycles, (WOW, that was nearly 45 years ago) there was always debate rather a smooth intake manifold was better than a rough one (usually casting texture). Smooth ones allowed for a more clean laminar air flow while rough ones caused turbulance. Turbulance was thought by some to better atomize the fuel. Thats in a carborated engine. With a fuel injected engine, were not dealing with atomizing as this is done by the injectors. as a result we want air flow that is as clean and smooth as can be obtained by hand working the air intake route.

To picture laminar flow remember for those that have seen it, like at Disney world/land, a foutain that shoots out a stream of water that stays as a water tube without any support as it moves through the air. Usually it will jump, arcing over something and drop right back into a hole still as one long tube of water. This is done by first eliminating any and all turbulance from the water by running it through a very clean unobstructed tube until its flow becomes laminar. It stays together after leaving the tube because it has no internal turbulance to break it up. Laminar air flow is the most efficient air flow that can be acheived. What you want in a fuel enjected engine is laminar flow. This is obtained by cleaning up the intake structure to be as clean and unobstructive as possible.

This one item can make a big difference in engine efficiency.

Buggy world in santee ca, has put the turbo in, i have seen the instalation, it is very clean and makes good hp

The Joyner dealer in Saint George, Utah, Epic Motorsports, has put a super charger on a T2 along with nitrise Oxide. The last I spoke with him he hasn't completed it yet. It's installed but not tuned in. I'll keep this site informed. When I asked if he thought the engine would hold together, he said "I have no idea I gues we'll find out" This guy is a real extremist, He has a 1200 hp Dodge Ram. Maybe we'll get a chance to see just how much this engine will or will not take.

Flatbed, do you have any idea just how many horses the turbo added?

flatbed pointed out to me once before about the extra pressure a turbo will put on the engine and running gear. I agree with him too however it's human instinct to look at aftermarket power boosters and most people will always at least consider it. With turbos, if you want to pump it up to the max it's going to cost max dollars keeping it running but if your not so hungry for power a little bit of boost will satisfy without stressing out your machine to much.

Cheers Mike

      I suspect I have a faulty temp sensor but at the cost of the sensor plus 50 percent tariff plus the shipping cost to Costa Rica, i would like to confirm it - the Hisun 800 has 2 sensors - one in the radiator appears to be a fully open or fully closed bi-metal contact switch similar to the old household thermostats for your heating system. - My fans turn on and off automatically as they should and a jumper across the connector also triggers the fan - appears to be a simple logic circuit back to the computer that then trips a relay for the fans.  The second sensor is on the back cylinder almost hidden by the throttle body and idle control system - I have unplugged it, sprayed it with contact cleaner, checked the pins, tried to get a resistance reading across the sensor, reconnected it and still get a blinking red light on the display panel warning of high temperature - this occurs even when the buggy is still cold having just started it in the morning - I have not been able to trace out the other end of the cable on the display panel since it appears i will have to remove the entire front plastic to get to it - hoping i could confirm the resistance before i go to that step (this is the same buggy originally posted by Jim Magnuson last September when the spark arrestor overheated and burned the plastic pickup bed - I fixed that by removing and cleaning the spark arrestor and it has never glowed red again.  I would really like to put a guage in place of the digital idiot light since (from experience in automobiles) by the time the idiot light goes on you have already damaged the engine - Which brings the second question - would it be advisable to swap the front radiator sensor for a real sensor and then jumper the fans to always on condition at the connector so the computer contentedly thinks everything is working and it is doing its job ?

      I have a 2015 Kawasaki mule 4010 4x4 that wont run more that 5 seconds when the engine is cold and the o2 sensor is plugged in. once I disconnect the sensor it runs and has lots of white smoke out of the exhaust. once it warms up I can plug the o2 sensor in and it will run fine. I swapped the sensor and didn't get any change.

      Any advice on where to look for a trailer for my UTV?  I am about to purchase a 2016 Joyner Sand Viper 1100cc and need to find a trailer for it.
      Thanks in advance!

      Will a 2018 Massimo MSU 500 fit on a 5x8 trailer (with gate/ramp)?
      I have read different lengths specs want to know if anyone has used a 5x8 trailer to haul them.  
      Forgive me if this has been answered elsewhere, I did not find it when I searched here
