Megasquirt boards now available again

Just thought I would mention for any one that missed out on the remnants of the last group buy that Bowling and Grippo are now stocking boards at all times. If you want to order a main board, power/relay board or stimulator they have all three available

Order (partial) kits

The small components needed to complete the board (approx $80.00 worth of transistors, resistors, capacitors, etc) are sourced out on your own, or ordered from Digikey using an automated order form set up for this purpose.

Digikey parts order page

If you do a some scrounging, you can build a GM TBI based system for around $500.00, assuming you already have (or access to) a laptop that will run Win95 or better.

If you want more info on this experimental do it yourself fuel injection kit look here:

"Unofficial" Frequently asked questions

I built one of their systems for my jeep with a 258 and I really like it. It's a fairly involved project, but is worth it when you hear that motor run and feel the pride of the do it yourselfer. I built it using a GM tbi, and it turns out similar to a Howell setup, with the added benefit of being tunable with a laptop.

Re: Megasquirt boards now available again

TiminMb, Just a quick [img]images/graemlins/goodpost.gif[/img] Thumbs up.
I've started gathering parts for my Buick 340.
One quick question for you, I'm running an Auto (th400) w/ a low stall converter. IYHO do you think the megasquirt will keep a reasonable idle speed in and out of gear? I lose about 5" of vaccum and 250 rpm (Down to around 700rpm in gear).

It looks like the IAC controller is a little past my skill, Any thoughts??
