    Default How many turns on your CR1

    Hi All

    Just looking for another piece of advice.

    I've recently fitted a CR1 to my 1.9 CDTi 150 Signum. Its a 2 turns above standard which I believe makes it now set at 20.
    The two questions I have are:-
    When do I know to stop turning it forward

    And

    If I want to reset it back to standard how do I achieve this, is it a case of winding it all the way back in and then advancing it 18 turns.

    As ever I bow to your superior knowledge.

    Cheers

    I'm running mine at 21 turns matey. To be honest if you're happy with the performance on 20 turns I'd leave it there, however even just a quarter of a turn can give you the extra you're obviously striving for .

    You'll know when you've turned it up too high (anti clockwise) when you get black smoke from the exhaust or you go into limp mode.

    To put back to standard wind all the way back down (clockwise) and then turn anti-clockwise 18 x 360 degree turns.

    I'm on 22 I think and never had a problem

    And yes, remember full 360 degrees = 1 turn

    AJA,

    Is it not clockwise to turn it up and anti clockwise to turn it back?

    If you have turned it twice CLOCKWISE from the factory settings you will now be at 16
    You will need to go ANTI-CLOCKWISE 4 turns to get to 20
