Microsquirt

Experiencing electrical issue with my car, decide it isn't worth my time to troubleshoot if the issues is at the computers or wiring.

Around $700 into parts so far. Microsquirt ecu, 8 ft harness, E85 sensor, 36-1 wheel, crank sensor, butt connectors, heat shrink, connectors, relays, fuel box, E85 quick connectors, QuadSpark Ignition Module, coil, & etc. Still need high impedance injectors and I'm sure other things.

Going to use batch firing and waste spark.

Separating engine harness with body harness.




Mounted.


All needed wires labeled.


Made bracket for crank sensor, using metal from the shifter bracket on top of the transmission. Will have to reinforce the bracket after the crank is welded to 36-1 wheel.




Marked where the 36-1 wheel needed to be welded to the crank pulley.


Need to find someone to cut the ring gear and weld to the crank pulley.

Re: Microsquirt

Trigger wheel install looks great!

Re: Microsquirt

My friend used a water jet to cut the 36-1 wheel to the correct size to fit the crank pulley, then all he needed to do was to weld.

Re: Microsquirt

Had to design a beefier new crank sensor bracket.





Engine bay good to go.


Injector resister, on/off idle solenoid


E85 sensor


Boost control solenoid and PCV blowby solenoid (opens at 0psi)


Fuseblocks and PC680 battery

Re: Microsquirt

I'm wanting to do a MegaSquirt setup on one of my cars, but I'm just afraid of the wiring of fuse blocks. I doubt I can use the OEM one, so I'd have to take it slow.

Get yourself some non-insulated butt connectors, crimp tool, heat strink, match box, and you'll wonder why you took so long to convert to fuseblock.

Hardest thing will be finding a place and making a bracket for the fuseblock.

Re: Microsquirt

edit , never mind I found it - "only" 170 cca I think I'll pass

any spec's on the battery?

I found a "anti gravity" brand battery - 6 x 5 x 3 x 3.5 pounds , 600 cca .. $400 + with lithium battery charger included

yeah , 400 bucks is a bit rich on price

also looking for stand alone battery terminals for a remote battery install with posts still in the engine compartment

I tried googleing the battery you show but my slow internet connection won't allow anything that came up to load

Re: Microsquirt

I just did emission and the car runs cleaner than it ever did on stock computer. I will definitely pick up more MPG as I can set cruising at 16:1 vs stock 13.7-14.1:1 ratio. I noticed when I set ignition timing with stock computer and distributor at idle speed, timing always jumps from between 10 BDC to 14BDC, it would NEVER settle at just 12 BDC like the factory manual calls for. With Microsquirt and a 36-1 wheel, ignition timing is bang on EVERY time.

Very happy with result and money well spent.

Re: Microsquirt

Wow. That sounds great! When I timed my Daytona, I noticed it would never sit on 12* exactly. Always 1-1.5 -/+ from that. Bang on!
