Cold Start on VW Drag Engine without touching throttle.

Been working here and there on getting the cold startup settings dialed in on my drag engine. Takes a while when you get one shot each morning between changes. Engine is a 2276cc, FK-89, 48x38 Comp Eliminator heads, 12.5:1 CR, running 91 pump gas with Megasquirt 3 for crankfired ignition and coil-on-plug ignition. Intake system is a home-brew built by me. It works well at keeping intake air temps ambient and has introduced a lot more low end torque than I had with the ITB's that were on there before. Overnight low was 35 degrees, but the car/engine only cooled down to 43-44 degrees overnight. Was hoping for a sub freezing night, but will have to wait until next fall it looks like.

Megasquirt 3 upgrade from MS2 - part 2
Part 2 of video showing a running Megasquirt-2 install being upgraded to Megasquirt-3. There was no preparation, we set the camera rolling and got on with it. Video intentionally presented as-is without edits. Shortly afterwards the car was driven 150 miles back to Virginia on the newly installed MS3. Sorry about the racket in the background, that was air-conditioning fans. (Cameraman distracted at the start of part 2 as it rained on my laptop..)
