New to the forum- hi all. Have been browsing a lot of information on woodgas lately and I am curious how people do woodgas setups with modern engines that have EFI and individual coil (non-distributor) ignition systems.
How is timing advance usually handled on these? Will the computer automatically advance the timing far enough based on the knock sensors, or is it necessary to do modification to the ECU?
If modification is necessary, is there anyone out there who has made a switch that can turn the extra advance on or off through connection with the OBD2 interface? (Basically like a custom multi-position tuner like what people put on diesels, but with parameters based on woodgas in gasoline engines)
Just general curiosity, I’m not doing a project right now, but have been thinking about it. My main interest would probably be in GM engines, either a LS-based 5.3 or 6.0 or an older 454 TBI
