Re: Speeduino? Arduino powered ECU?

Yea the old megasquirt used the distributor signals so i couldnt understand why it wouldnt work with the speeduino. I have a buddy who is interested in trying to build one of these with a blacktop 20v. I will probably help him out with it and post my findings here. Assuming you want to use the stoc...

Re: Speeduino? Arduino powered ECU?

Crank signal's well covered with the Squirt crowd. Agree 100% on going cop. Grab some off a k series honda or lsx at a pick and pull. Well documented and durable. Might be someone local that would let you borrow a jimstim. Check their forums. ^_^ I'm fairly stoked you're progressing. I'd honestly r...

Re: Speeduino? Arduino powered ECU?

You have a couple of options to get that square wave signal. Easiest would be to go to the junkyard and pick a crank sensor off a 90s ford equipped with EDIS. Then you would need a trigger wheel, i used the one from T3 cause it bolts right on to their crank pulley. Make sure you use shielded wiring...

Re: Speeduino? Arduino powered ECU?

Price is definitely right for screwing around with a car you'll never get your money back out of. Lol you got that right! And also cheap enough to where if I mess up, no big deal. Right now I'm saving up for a JimStim before I buy all the speeduino parts so I can do as much bench testing as possibl...

Re: FX-16 gear ratio/manual trans

Yeah I'm with Aukword. I think your best bet would be finding a smaller final drive. Surely there's an option out there for the fwd/mr2 guys out there. I know all the b-series honda dudes would swap the 5th gear out of LS integras since they're longer, but idk what thats like for the fwd 4age guys.

Hesitation at low rpms

For the past few months I've noticed my AE86 has a hesitation at low RPMS. It only occurs during initial acceleration, for example taking off in 1st gear from a stop light. I would press the accelerator and it would hesitate until about 3k and then take off. I tried looking up to see if it was a com...
