DIY water injection with megasquirt demo
I made this kit while ago and have been using it for several months. Was
going to check the spray as I've been doing every now and then (as I'm
using normal water), so got the camera out as I thought it might be
interesting for some.
The set-up comprises of a cheap high pressure ULKA coffee machine pump
(230v), a small inverter to power it, a relay at the inverter's output
which is controlled my megasquirt. So the inverter is powered from a switch
in the dash, then it's ready for megasquirt so close the relay.
The water then goes through high pressure nylon pipe into a water injection
nozzle both purchased on ebay.
No need for a check valve or anything else, as the pump is a piston type
like the fancy aquamist kits (just it's not shiny lol).
Reservoir is a windscreen washer tank from another car.
I'd recommend this kit to everyone - it's cheap, light, simple, effective.
Inspired by the article on autospeed.com.
Here's a link to the nozzle size calculator. Thanks Devils Own!
my megasquirt convertion runs!
This is the second time my MS&S Extra equiped VW 9A engine runs. It is
using a Ford coil pack, which is directly driven from the MS.
After correcting some wrong wiring and loose ground connections, I was
able to start the engine in just 2 attempts.
This is also an engine convertion project, I will use this engine in my
1986 VW transporter syncro.
You may see the adapter plate which I made between the engine and the bus
bellhousing. The starter is a bus item too.
Tiger Kit Car
Fun with the Tiger. Powered by a 2 litre Zetec 16v engine with R1 Bike
Carbs. - (Gearbox = Sierra Type 9) (Suspension = Rear IRS and front Spax
adjustables) Lightweight racing seats fitted with 4 point harness. Since
this footage was taken, more work has been done to the car, including a
custom made cover for the spare wheel.
Megasquirt Start - 1835cc Bug Motor
First startup after dialing in some fuel settings. Car is running on 18lbs
injectors, ITBs, CBR coil on plugs. Idle vacuum is high, around 75kpa so I
might need alpha-n.
next is a turbo?
E30 BMW Dyno Pulls with Stock ECU versus DIYPNP MegaSquirt
Fairly Stock E30 BWM (M20 engine n/a) on the Dyno. We fully tuned the DIYPNP
MegaSquirt EMS, then did a back to back comparison of the OEM ECU, versus
the DIYPNP fully tuned.
Then finally, a comparison of the DIYPNP with the AFM still in place,
versus with the AFM deleted to improve intake flow a bit.
Picked up as much as 23whp and 23ft-lbs of torque 'under the curve'.
My Mk1 Cortina running a 2.0 Zetec on Hayabusa TB's, Megasquirt, Stage 3
Head and Semi Race Cams etc.. about 220+ BHP-ish ; )
