I've been led to the "Megasquirt" site time and time again. it's hard to believe that I hadn't heard of this before!
From the preliminary reading I've done at their site, it would appear that they've got this thing all figured out.
It appears that the folks at Megasquirt have already gone through all of the "hit and miss" errors and published their findings there. It's pretty cool; and VERY interesting.
Here's a link to them(it's an EFI based system initially but, there's links to their Ignition controls too);
Oh yeah, here's a link to the "DIY Auto Tune" site. They've got EVERYTHING you'll need for the Megasquirt systems:
I just got to thinking and, with all of the Air/Fuel upgrades and modification I'll be doing to the GLHS, it just made sense to search for a more efficient ignition system.
Anyone who's owned a TD has experienced the "No Spark" issue on a cold morning from the failed HEP!(lol) I'd be willing to bet that there's several of us who've got more than a few bucks tied up in replacing these "failure waiting to happen" HEP units!
So, to completely delete this "weak link" in the system, I wanted to find a "direct fire" type of system. And, it would appear that I have with the Megasquirt. I've also found out that it's fully PROGRAMMABLE; NICE!
So, until I find a "better" choice, I'll head forward with the Megasquirt.
Thank you to everyone that fed me info on this!
And, if there's anyone out there with even better information or, knows of a better system, please let me know of it.
