I've got an xf with an ED XR 4l turboed engine useing a ea cpi dizzy. I've had a MegaSquirt-I Programmable EFI System PCB2.2 installed and i'm looking for a .msq file that will be able to get this badboy going.
I should mention it's a straight gas setup.

Can anyone help?

You are going to have to post some more info on your setup - how is the MS1 wired ?

Why do you need a MegaSquirt to run the car ?
It is LPG injected ?

I only need the ecu to run the spark.
Once I can get the car running it's off to the dyno tuners to get tuned.

The software version is 2.25
and here's a pic of the wiring diagram:

hope that helps

Pretty sure you will have to upgrade to the MSextra code to control the spark
secondly according to you, you are running a MS1 V2.2.
the wiring diagram you have there is for a MS2 V3.0

Here is the MS1 v2.2 external wiring diagram http://www.megamanual.com/v22manual/extwir.gif and the respective page

Not 100% sure but having not run a turbo motor on a MS1, if you want to control the Boost using the MS1 you have to upgrade to the MSextra code as the standard code does not support it.
you will need to mod you board according to this
http://www.msextra.com/manuals/MS_Extra_Hardware_Manual.htm#boost
as it says still experimental.
