Ray's 1974 Datsun 260Z RB25DET MegaSquirt MS1/E-029v
I installed Megasquirt on Ray's car (MS1/E-029v code to be specific), wired
the instruments, and rewired almost the whole bloody car! The car runs
awesome, looks awesome, and won 1st place in "Modified Z-car" at the 2007
All Datsun/Nissan Meet in Vancouver. While I researched how to hook up the
RB25DET, Ray did all of the mechanical install of the motor, fab work for
the Intercooler and Exhaust, and prepared all of the typically
numerous other little things that take time and attention.
The audio track came from Brant Bjork's fantastic album Jalamanta (NLA &
OOP), so go BUY yourself some of Brant's finely crafted music...
