    2706 goes megasquirt

    Well since I have officially bought a whole bunch of parts I guess it's time to make a thread. I have taken this leap of faith based off the help of Luke, Pat, and Josh. Seeing Luke's beautiful car at DCS 18 motivated me. Not to mention the only reliability issues I have had are with Kjet and I hate it and lack of tunability . I am new to megasquirt so I would appreciate any help, guidance etc.

    This is not my first fuel injection and tuning project. I built a 2006 toyota Tacoma street strip truck once and built the turbo kit and did my own tuning . Piggy back ecu, Supra injecters, trubonetics t3/t4 turbo, inovate wideband etc. and me with a laptop in the passenger seat tuning while my buddy drove it. 14 psi to a stock block and had a lot of fun with that truck .

    I am considering doing a turbo as well but first I need to do the conversion.


    Attached are the parts I have ordered so far with their help. I need to do some more research and see what's left. I need to look at the distributor and also the crank sensor stuff.

    Parts list so far :
    DPI
    -spec rails and Injectors
    DIY Auto Tune
    -GM IAT open Element and Pigtail
    -GM CLT/IAT closed Element and Pigtail
    -idle air control body
    -associated pigtails
    -megasquirt 3 EMS system
    -8' harness
    -tuning cable
    -Innovate LC-2
    -gauge
    Aeromotive fuel pressure regulator

    Wish I had known you were doing this project; I could have gotten you the majority of these parts much cheaper; just sitting around on my shelf.

    nice! Im excited to see this happening. If let me know if I can help with a crank trigger, I know Luke has a setup.
    Not really sure what Josh has to offer, but likely something as well.
