I've just ordered my Megasquirt fuel injection controller today. One problem though. It's only available as a partial kit with PCB, Processor and MAP sensor only. You now have to source the rest of the componants yourself. I received an email from Al Grippo saying that there will be no Yahoo group purchases in the future. The members at Yahoo have set up a 3rd party source for the rest of the componants but you'll be paying US dollars for items that can be obtained cheaply here in Oz. I'll be using Farnells or RS Componants so if anybody want's a cross reference to their stock no.s I should have one compiled in a week or so.
Partial Kit prices are $50 ECU, $15 relay PCB, $20 Stim and $7 postage. All US$ of course.

Hi,
Just wondering how you are going with the megasquirt. I've built two, but don't have an engine to put them on yet.

I didn't buy the case, so they are not quite finished, but they seem to run OK. What are you using for the case?

I just bought the bare boards, sourced most of the parts here, just a few bits from digikey. I also built the programmer, and programmed the cpu's, and got a second hand stim from a fellow in New Zealand.

regards,

John

Geez... it took someone a long time to answer that post

G'day Johnno. Welcome to the mad house. I see you're from one of my favourite places, Newcastle.
I had a look at your website and it looks like you've got a lot of work to do mate.
Can you elaborate on your plans for the tudor?

I haven't done anything with the squirt yet. After I modified my engine I found that the carbs were workin real fine so I've left well enough alone (sorry choco).
I'm planning to build a new car once the new limited rego rules are sorted out and I'll probably use the squirt on that car coz I hear that you'll now have to comply with higher emission standards

By the way, did you turn 40 in 2002 by any chance?

Hi,

I'll put some info on my tudor plans on the members rides page.

I didn't actually turn forty in 2002 more like 41. Had to think up a user name in a hurry one night, and cocked it up, I use it every where now just to remind me that i'm an idiot like I need remindin

Newcastle is a great spot, probably because it's home. I work in Sydney a few days a week, can't wait to get back, but I'm sick of sight of the endless stream of native weeds on the newcastle end of the F3 yawn.

I been muckin about with cars for a while, had most of the bits to build a 28 A roadster 20 years back, but spent too much time working on others cars to build it, ended up selling it. I really regret that

I been off studying, getting married, kids, work work work, but I just can't shake the hotrod bug, so I'm collecting bits again, and I'm not working on other cars.

I have been seperated from my old shed, just begining the process of building a new one here. My tudor is in a 12 foot by 12 foot shed with a bench at the back. I can just get my hand down the front to open the roller door, so I can walk back outside, then into the other side to get at my tools. Lucky I don't have a chassis yet. Every time I go to do something, the tool I need is in my other shed, 40 minutes away, and it doesn't matter which shed I'm in

regards,

John
