Anyone wanna buy my built MS1 ? I've got no use for it since I sold the EB.

Hyena built it for me a couple of years ago and its just sat around since then doing nothing


Does it actually work? How much you after (pm me if you like)?

I am thinking about using one on my FJ-40


Hyena built it and tested it all on the MS Stimulator. Dima did some work on it installing it into a friends EL but the project was abandoned. Besides that its only sat on my desk collecting dust. I'm assuming it all works as it should. PM me if you're keen

Hey Brad you still owe me $80 from that too!
And yeah it was all tested and working when I handed it over. It shoudl be a matter of just wiring up all the sensors and then troubleshooting what you did wrong :lol:

Woohoo!

Its working so far, it powers up fine but my voltage is 5.42V rather than 5V. Im guessing this is my multimeter being inaccurate as it is even across all the pins.

I need a DB9 cable before I can go any further. This is easy but so time consuming.

The manual is awesome to follow.

I agree, it has to be the better kit I have seen. Some bits later in the construction need to be read a few times before they make sense but overall very high quality.

yeah like stockstandard said its a very high quality kit/manual...

And like you said, putting it together is fun ;)

It took me 3 sessions after work to get mine done.. was probably the most fun part of the entire thing really..

The rest of it would've been fun if i wasnt installing it in my daily driver or my daily didnt run very well with the stock ECU...

ah well ;) If i'm not gonna be driving my car for a while I should be able to get mine in now that my sisters not driving it (gets her vz sv6 tomorrow.. :|)

Either way have fun with it buddy.. oh and i shotgun your 6280 if you replace it!

Wow - just noticed the eMS-PRO

Looks like a MS2 with a whole lot of new hardware and software features. Check out the feature list:

# Boost Control
# Nitrous Oxide Control
# Knock Sensor Input (tunable to OEM sensors)
# 2-step launch control
# Shift Light output
# Tachometer output
# Cooling fan control
# 4-bar MAP sensor for up to 44psi of BOOST!
# Second barometric pressure sensor for automatic baro correction
# Fast-idle warm up or closed loop idle control via a PWM idle valve
# Support for high or low impedance injectors
# Support for single crank angle sensor or dual crank/cam sensor ignition setups

Also USB connectivity now

That does look pretty good.

It will be interesting to see how it goes.

Just picked up my DB9 cable at lunch so I can get a few more hours of soldering in tonight after work before seeing the girlfriend.

Hopefully I can get some lights happening on the stimulator. That would be good.

Don't forget to instal/remove the link when testing with the stim. I forgot to do this at first and was scratching my head as to why it wouldn't work. It's been a while since I did one but it's all there in the documentation

I havent bothered with the stim. Seemed like more hassle than it is worth.

I was worried about putting it together so the stim seemed worthwhile.

Ive just been reading the megamanual and it says that the Edis system used a hall/optical

Quote:
50. Next you need to make a decision. There are two input circuits for the tach signal:

The Hall/optical/etc. circuit takes the square wave input from a Hall sensor, optical sensor, or points. It can also be used for triggering off the coil (but only if you are not controlling ignition timing).
The VR circuit takes the AC signal from a variable reluctor sensor and converts it to a square wave for use by MegaSquirt.


If you aren't sure what input circuit to use, check to see if your ignition is on this list and follow the instruction in the link if it is:


Distributor Pickups: general information,
GM HEI: use the Hall/Optical circuit,
GM DIS: use the Hall/Optical circuit,
Ford EDIS: use the Hall/Optical circuit,
Ford TFI: use the Hall/Optical circuit,
Bosch 0 227 100 124: depends on trigger type,
MSD 6A: depends on trigger type,
Direct Coil Control: depends on trigger type.


Is that a misprint? I thought the edis system and 36-1 wheel was a VR input setup.

I figured it was worthwhile for the extra few bucks to know if the unit was faulty before fitting it to the car (especially when making them for others) There's so many things that could go wrong in the construction before you even fit it to the car and start trouble shooting. I guess if you run into problems it helps narrow down if the problem is between the sensor/engine/wiring and the ecu itself.

Dan, everywhere I read said the edis module does use the wheel and VR sensor so it must be a misprint in the later revisions

Yeh is has to be a misprint.

I wish I could go home and work on it now. Im keen to see if it all works properly. I might tell the GF im going four wheel driving or something so she makes other plans :P
