Its an megasquirt clone, in the end, its the same only this board is completely assembled with SMD style components.

So I was wondering if it was normal to start on only 1 coilpack when using wasted spark?
Maybe to see if it was at the right stroke?!

Just as i was thinking, but we can use that options on our Scania V8 engines, to find the right stroke after the engine has been manually turned over and the started with the starter, the engine "lost" where it was haha.

So, voila....

Checking if Tooth Logger in Tunerstudio was showing nice tooth's. -grin-

And well, what do you know, al three outputs were blinking and firing. Shoot me, but i works! -lll._.-

Saved this very empty and basic tune with a special name, haha.

Fitted the sparkplugs, and felt airblowing from the exhaust when cranking :mrgreen:

It runs, and i didn't suspect that it would in the first try, so it fucking scared me! -dizzy- -grin- -lll._.- -yuush-

But no vacuumhose attatched, so it keeps going up in speed, killed it by cutting the fuelpump. But that i was prepared of haha.

No i will build the radiator on the skid, so i can do some basic testing!

Man, has it been a long time!

Lot of work done, not so much posting.

This is the car:
Image

Ready for heart surgery
Image
Image

Bummer, rust in the wheel arch
Image

Fitted turboed engine, intercooler has been placed, but not the final position
Image

It aint much on the picature, but it's almost 1 cm.
Image

Distribution cover of an L-Jet M20, weld the hole shut, or plug with nice rubber plug.
Image

Nice he!!
Image

Enlarged the intercooler, right is a bit nicer then left... Same on me!
Image
Image

Space enough if im correct
Image

New front Valance, mine was completly rusted.
Image

Pipe between turbo and intercooler, not the final one
Image

Pipe between intercooler and inlet
Image

With Tial Q 50mm BOV and the pipe for idle valve.
Image

The downpipe, 76mm O.D
Image

The exhaust, 76mm O.D
Image

Brackets
Image
Image

V-band flange
Image

Rear view, exhaust is welded by a friend.
Last piece isnt finished, waiting for my Magnaflow silincer to arrive!.
Image

Finished product, straight through the center, not bad for making it fit with some wooden blocks!
Image
Image

The K&N airfilter, type RU-2520.
Image

Airfilter and charge pipe
Image

Daiper for the turbo to keep the heat in and the big ass elbow for the airfilter.
Image

And when it's painted, nice and stealth
