Hi Joe

Ok it will be fun to see if it starts chuffing like the old one again, by the way do you have any way to get an idea of what temperatures you are seeing in the gasification zone in the combustion chamber? also I was thinking off the hook a bit about if a car air mass sensor could be used in some way to see how much draft you are getting or in conjunction with a throttle by wire flap valve and servo actually create a feedback control mechanism for it, off topic stuff a bit

Thats a tough one, not sure how a mass flow sensor will do with pulsed flow.
I thought about adding a oxygen sensor halfway down the tailpipe, along with a flap valve on the intake.

For now, just would like to make the cycle more stable through a wider range of rich conditions, and see how it does with the chips.
