Re: [DML] Megasquirt Fuel Maps



I don't think the cars in Texas are using trigger wheels. 

Owen's car has a different manifold & throttle plate, but Shannon and Ian's cars are supposed to be nearly identical (Ian has slightly different camshafts, but Megasquirt gurus don't think they are causing the problems Owen is reporting).

The plan is to come up with a bolt on conversion -- a "kit" if you will. The Megasquirted owner I talked to yesterday does not think that is possible -- there is too much variation car to car, even if the fuel injection components are identical.

I found that thread by Googling "Megasquirt DeLorean problem" BTW -- it's the very first hit (among many others). This is a very public challenge they are struggling with.

The guy in Texas who is trying to develop a bot on kit, using Shannon Birdwell's car as the test bed, is having ongoing problems using Shannon's fuel maps on somebody else's car. Of course Shannon's car still isn't 100%, so that might be part of the problem, but even as far as Shannon's car has gotten, the other car runs worse on Shannon's same maps (or so he is publicly reporting).

At least you don't have to get your hands dirty! Oh, and you don't have to worry about certification. The best part is once someone gets it done and done well everyone can benefit from it with just a download. IMHO if I had to get rid of the K-Jet, Mega-Squirt (or something similar) would be the way to go.
