    What TPS Do You Use With Megasquirt?

    I'm thinking about installing a TPS on my car to run with Megasquirt (MS). What works well with MS and how/where di you install it?

    I know I and a few others used a ~1984 Corvette TPS as it's a potentiometer with a lever that can be adapted with some metal bending to be driven off the throttle spool.

    My next option was a Volvo 850 TPS. I was going to have a piece of metal welded onto the throttle spool axle and shave off the top to fit the half-moon profile inside for a cleaner and more reliable installation.

    Just wanted to add that the Volvo 850 is also the same Bosch #0-280-122-001 TPS I am using.

    Did you decide or install a TPS yet? Let us know what happens.

    I am planning on doing so. I was out all last week so I didn't have a chance to work on it. I still need to figure out which one to get and how to install it. Then I need to get it connected to Megasquirt. I want to do this soon. Anyone do this on the Delorean throttle spool or use a accelerator TPS?

    Do you have this installed on a Delorean throttle? If so how did you do it? Pictures? I'm running a stock Delorean engine.

    What is the part number for this? Do you have pictures showing how it's installed?

    I've looked at the Bosch 0-280-122-001 which fits the Volvo 850 and a TPS which fits a '84 Corvette. That can be found in a BWD Part no EC1003 at O'Reillys. How would either be attached in a Delorean engine?Bosch 1.jpgBosch 2.jpgBWD 1.jpg

    I just made a simple bracket and wire tied it on there. Been just like this for 8 years now. I check it from time to time with tunerstudio to make sure its ok. No problems yet.
