The 18% off coupon has me thinking about picking up a Megasquirt unit again, but I'm not entirely sure which one. My car is a '92 with the 1.6L still in place (no immediate plans to swap in a 1.8), bone-stock for now with plans down the line for a simple turbo (though not anytime soon). The MSPNP of course is very appealling, but at just shy of $600 before discount, that is out of my price range. The DIYPNP at $425 is much more reasonable, but still a bit more than I'd like to spend right now.
Which brings me to these two units:
MegaSquirt-I EFI System - SMD PCB3.57 - Assembled Unit - http://www.diyautotune.com/catalog/m...nit-p-164.html
MegaSquirt-I Programmable EFI System PCB2.2 - Assembled Unit - http://www.diyautotune.com/catalog/m...unit-p-34.html
I'm assuming I'd need a conversion harness to make either of these work, which would be the catch.
I've been watching the classifieds regularly too, but the PNP units aren't that much cheaper than new, and almost always still out of my price range. I am leaving room for a wideband and such also of course.
So for the guys who have done it up/down/backwards/and sideways, am I crazy for even considering these as a possibility? Is it really that much more of a headache to go one of these routes? Is there a benefit to assembling my own instead of using one of these, via this thread: How to make and install your own Diy MegaSquirt
