That’s the beauty of megasquirt, you don’t need to run mass air! If you have a MAF sensor already, you can sell it to re-coupe some of the costs of going with a megasquirt. For boosted applications, MAP is a far better method of control than MAF.Are there any good pages out there for installing the MS for ignition and air/fuel on a mass air foxbody?
when you say i won't run in those areas of the table until i install the turbo, do you mean the MS will sense the boost and run in that area of the table? i didn't think the MS had a boost sensor, at least not stock.
Nope, it comes with it's own map sensor.So it is set up to use a map but you still need to buy a gm map sensor right?
Looking in the instructions for the adapter, it says you need to harvest the connector and case from the stock ecu, will i still be able to put the stock ecu back together? (in case i can't get the MS working correctly and need to use my car).
so what i need: MS II kit, wideband 02, map sensor?, eecIV adapter, relay cable, and maybe the stimulator for testing purposes. sound about right?
Thanks a lot millhouse, i will contact you for that config info when the time comes.
The serial ports allow you to daisy chain multiple lc-1’s or other devices for easy hookup. It’s a nice feature, and myself only use one serial port for the xd-16 gauge. Unless you plan on spending some big money though…most won’t ever use but the one (if you go with the xd-16).I was looking at the innovate wideband kits on the diy site and it seems like they come with some extra stuff, do i even need the serial cable or that other one(for lack of better description)? I saw a couple ebay that have just the sensor and the cable that is connected to it. don't want to spend $100+ for stuff i may not need.
Yep, the stock fusebox should work just fine without the need for the relay board.I'm thinking I might just monitor my afr with the megatune software instead of paying the extra $100 or so for the gauge. Plus I want to keep the stock look inside the interior, but if i wanted to i could find a discrete location for the gauge.
If I use the eecIV adapter, will everything still use the stock fuse box or should i get one of these:
Yep, just one wideband is needed...nothing else.If you are getting a MS and going to use a wideband, you don't need to buy any O2 sensors. Unless I missed something when reading the megamanual (hope I didn't because the install is about done) you really just run a wideband or narrowband o2s, not both.
I'm sure Millhouse will correct me if I'm wrong.
