Re: opinions on my efi journy

also I CAN NOT find a small port fuel rail to save my life! I have a spare one here in New Zealand. They usually sell here for around NZ$100 and postage to the US will be around NZ$35. So if you get stuck NZ$135 = US$88 and it's yours in a couple of weeks for US$92 (including Paypal fees). Cheers.....

Re: opinions on my efi journy

Yes... the best thing that you can do is get a piece of paper and create a basic wiring diagram. Identify every input and output that will be connected to the ECU and where your power supply will be coming from.

Sure, if you already have the MSD and distributor setup you could use that. http://megasquirt.free.fr/sources/MS/manual/ms2/msd6av22.gif http://megasquirt.free.fr/sources/MS/manual/ms2/msd6a.htm It's all laid ou...

Re: opinions on my efi journy

OK... with that engine spec you definitely need full control over ignition timing. So looking at the Microsquirt spec sheet I see that it mentions... 4* logic level ignition outputs (4cyl COP, 8cyl wasted) The key words are "logic level" which means that it can be used to drive up to four...

Hey everyone! Thought I would follow up so others have the info as well. I found a company that makes a plug and play patch harness to use an AEM ems-4 ecu with the jdm trueno harness! The company is BOOMSLANG.COM Thing is expensive but might solve others issues as well!

Re: JDM KOUKI ECU OPTIONS

For a "plug and play" there are a few out there. If you want a piggyback set-up I'd say the best would be a Greddy e-manage. The JDM units can be controlled with a piggyback but the USDM unit cannot. For a PnP look at AEM, I think I saw one available there. So everything ive found so far ...

Re: old ignition set up from japan!

Both the Nodiz (= no dizzy) and Megajolt eliminate the distributor entirely, but need a 36-1 or 60-2 crank trigger wheel to be installed. Another possibility is Microsquirt (a member of the Megasquirt family) that can use the cam position and rpm triggers that are in the base of your distributor to...

IT does look like the idle up and rpm gauge wire look similar so I will look again it just sucks cuz the previous owner cut a lot of those wires haha Sounds like the right wire, you might have to trace it back and see if there are any shorts on it. Even possibly that it could be the wrong wire there...
