  • Finally managed to get the ignition system finished off. Parts are on order for the first batch of units.

    Added a bunch of features which should hopefully cater for most set ups.

    Boost control
    Inlet air temp compensation
    Engine temperature compensation
    Voltage dwell compensation

  • Mexi-EFI kits now ready for ordering. Still need to get them posted up on the web store but if you are interested in converting your existing N/A MEXI setup to blown then give me a shout.

Here you can see the new case complete with locking waterproof connector. I need to redesign the ECU board a little so that it fits in the case. That's the great thing with open source design, I can take the design and modify it for my application, as long as it is done in accordance with the license requirements.

    The ultimate goal of this ECU build is to create an ECU that is professionally packaged, easy to install and deploy and includes the basic features needed to provide fuel and spark to one of my blown set ups. This means that the costs are minimised, which in turn means that I can pass the savings on to the end user, which opens up the possibility of using EFI to many people. Of course if people want to buy an $800 megasquirt or a $2000 Haltec they still have this option open to them.

    Feature-wise the ECU will have the following

    - Batch fire injection
    - Wasted spark ignition
    - Distributorless crank fired control
    - Boost referenced ignition mapping
    - Idle air control
    - Acceleration enrichment
    - Cold start enrichment
    - Closed loop Lambda control
    - Auto-tune capabilities

    I also received the Idle air control valve and throttle position sensor. Finding the correct components to work with both the ECU and still fit the throttle body has taken a bit of time. Standardisation of components has been an important factor as these components need to work across a range of different ECUs. They also have to be reliable and robust enough to withstand the operating environment, plus not be so obscure that they are hard to come across.

    At the moment I'm busy drafting the new ECU layout. This should hopefully be ready before Christmas.

  • Full steam ahead with the EFI electronics package. Sourced a two wire inlet air control valve that will work with MegaSquirt and fit my throttle body.

    Ordered a bunch of stuff to start making up the EFI wiring loom. Hoping to get the prototype installed and fired up soon.

    I'm in the process of updating the web site which includes adding in some new products and listing all of the existing parts that I sell. There's still a heap of work to do as it goes live at the end of the week.

    Also negotiating with a few suppliers to bring you some new options. Hopefully everything is going to come together by the end of the week.

Received more parts today, another batch of carburettors. These will be modified to work with the kits before being shipped out to customers. We only use brand new FAJS carburettors as it allows us to provide a warrantee which we could not do if we used reconditioned parts. FAJS carbys are excellent quality and are fully interchangeable with Weber parts. More

Another busy day in the workshop making up parts. Had to fix my tapping head as the old chuck had seized up on it. Ended up stripping the tapping head down and making a tapered adaptor so that I could use a Jacobs chuck on it. I turned the old shaft down and then TIG'd the adaptor on. The tapping head is a must for making sure that holes are tapped straight and sure beats tapping by hand. More
