I have to say one thing here. This site, and the SyTy forums, is one of the best no-BS forums I've ever been on. Try talking about Megasquirt on the "posdsm" board, where the guy who teaches EFI101 will tell you all about how bad megasqsuirt sucks, even though he hasn't used one. YOu guys definitely rule here. How do you get a forum going without a ton of internet haters anyways???? this place is A+ seriously.




We appreciate and love hearing that. We've been lucky in that the VR4 is a limited production vehicle, and tends not to draw the typical shortbus riding internet jockeys. By virtue of the smaller numbers, we draw less volume of people, and by virtue of the 4-door status and higher price (than a comparable 1G DSM) we seem to draw more mature members. Not to mention, we try to weed out the troublemakers when they do come around.



I know it's a foreign idea for most of us here, but you might want to try taking the car off jackstands.

Harness: you'll either need to assemble one using your own 16 or 18 gauge wire, or buy one preassembled.

Note, you'll stlil have to make "mods" to the megasquirt, so you'll need the $9 RadioShack soldering iron, get the LOW WATTAGE one, no more than 20w is necessary. Jerry can include the resistors you need if you tell him when you order, that you are using this on a 4G63.

Difference between MS-I and MS-II :


MS-I is the original Motorola chip that required programmers to develop software for it, in Assembly language. The MS-II is new, it has an interpreter that lets you write code in C++, however it lacks all the featudres of the MS-I as of yet. Soon enough, it will be usable for 4G63 guys, and it's a SIMPLE upgrade without replacing or rewiring anything you'll do with the MS-I.

But right now MS-II lacks the ability to decode the 4G63 CAS.

There are some other "improvements" but none that I find necessary for the 4G63 just yet, they've added resolution to injector pulsewidths so you can run "1.31ms" idle PW instead of "1.3" - you get the idea.

I think it will be about a $50 upgrade to MS-II chip if and when you will want to do it. I've done one of them, they're OK but IMO not quite ready for prime time on the 4G63 just yet.

Matt didn't "hate" on your supermegasquirt ecu. He gave pros *and* cons for its use. We didn't take well to the arrogance you presented on our board.

ive been interested in megasquirt since i first heard about it. i thought it was way above my head but now it seems it has become more user-friendly. maybe ill try and use it on my LS1 swap in my 69' camaro. is there an application for that? also, is there any interest in trying to get the megasquirt to run individual injector control's or will it stay bank-fire do you think? good info, thanks

How much would you charge for the base maps?




Don't ever spend money on MSQ's. Anyone who tries to sell you one is a hustler, even identical engines will have slightly different maps that you will have to tune for anyways. Poke around MSEFI and you will find one.

Multi port injection is already out. From my understanding it is not stable yet but should have all the problems worked out in a few months

I have helped a few friends set it up on their 280Z and 280zx both with the later turbo L28ET. It was easy to setup and can be done in a weekend if its something you have never done before. You get a lot of help on MSEFI but it only takes you so far and I wouldn't trust anyones maps but you have to start somewhere. I bought my prebuilt MSnS-Extra setup off ebay for 215 shipped with harness and all sensors and that was a killer deal. I was going to set it up in my 240sx with a KA-T this summer. I may have to pick up a new MS setup to run on the Galant.
