Re: [DML] EFI? Megasquirt?



Hi Darryl,

I successfully converted my DeLorean to MegaSquirt EFI. I believe I may be the
only one in the community (maybe one other?) to have done it with a stock
DeLorean PRV engine (not the Eagle variant) and am running a MegaSquirt computer
that I tune myself with a laptop, not a more expensive type ECU that is not as
programmable.

I wrote an article for Ron and his Gullwing magazine that used to be published.
You might be able to find a copy of it still. But, basically if you are only
thinking of doing it because a couple of hoses were old and broke, I would think
about it some more. It will require down time, a lot of planning, the ability to
solder, do electrical work, do some machining possibly, and source parts from
totally different cars.

In my case, I had gone through three CPR's, two fuel accumulators, various
sensors, and I still had a 25 year old fuel system. I was able to sell all of my
old K-Jet parts to someone who was resurrecting a poorly stored D, and I
reimbursed myself for most of the conversion costs (doing all of the labor myself
of course).

Nothing you stated in your email is that big of a deal to fix, although
everything added together can add up quickly (annoyance and money). Just be very
certain of what you are getting into before you tear your car apart! :-)

I'm considering doing this. I just changed the frequrency valve in my
car, to try and fix a high idle. (No luck) Anyway two of the hoses
snaped like twigs. I had put in a new distrubitor, injectors, had
almost all the parts replaced since maybe January of 2006. But the odds
and ends.

But I'm getting tired of the high idle (2000rpm), and fuel problem
after problem. Well you guys know the story. I could never stop owning
this car, but I just want it to work.

Is there anyone on this list that has done it? I tired looking at stuff
on the internet, reading about it, trying to see what parts I need. But
if anyone could send me an email about how they did it, I would greatly
appricate it.

thanks!
