forgive me for i am a noob
i bought fully functioning assembled ms2 used. it was previously running a sr20 with a ford EDIS module and it ran 4 individual coils that fit directly over the plugs.
i have some questions about how im supposed to set this megasquirt up internaly to drive the 2 OE coils directly without an external ignition module (such as the edis module). id like to keep as much of the factory sensors as possible. i will be using the gm IAT for obvious reasons but id like to keep the CLT and crank sensor original im hoping to do this all in parallell with the stock ecu because it drives the tachometer and alternator.
i was thinking about doing that mod "Bosch BIP373 Coil Driver Mod Kit" seems like it would do the trick. but apparently i have to remove another piece of hardware to make it fit....i dont even know what that thing is and if ill need it. and since this thing was previouisly set up for edis what mods do i have to UN-DO.
im not sure how to figure out if the 01-05 coils use a 5 volt signal or 12 volt. i have a feeling its only 5 volts but even if it is i still dont know what differences that makes in the internals of the megasquirt.
idk if some of you guys can just look at this thing and tell what needs to be done it does not seem too complex i know if i assembled it i would have a better understanding of what everything is
i really wanted to utilize all of the factory hardware but i understand nothing is permanent. one of my biggest concerns is i just want my gauge cluster to work. this car is so close to being complete im willing to do whatever necessary to make it run i have my engine harness unwrapped and laying on my floor ready for modification i just need a guide in the right direction with this engine management thing.
(flame suit on)
