<p>Hmmm, tempting. I need to get all my sensors into the megasquirt. You use the ADC inputs&nbsp;right? I want oil temp, pressure, etc.</p><p>You have all your sensors wired to the megasquirt Ian right?</p>

Next project Aidan! 10 channel analog Mini CAN input board. Maybe a few extra digital inputs in there too?

I have a Reverant plug-n-nplay MS3, so all of the stock sensors are wired up through the factory connector. For the extra sensors I've been adding (external MAP, exhaust pressure, fuel pressure, stuff like that) I've been wiring them up using spare ADC inputs on the db37. There are 3 or 4 that are easy to get to (SPARE_ADC, EGO2, and EXT_MAP are the main ones I've been using). I think there may be a couple others that aren't brought out that can be gotten with a soldering iron, but I haven't needed them yet.

Theoretically I can repurpose the main EGO input because I'm using Reverant's serial-to-CANbus converter box instead of the analog signal from the LC2, but the software in the MS3 doesn't seem to allow that, so I'll have to hack the code if I want that one.

I don't have oil pressure or oil temp in my MS3, though, I haven't seen the need.

Yes I need all the cheap axles I can get. Did you just get ahold of an NA8 after building your 1.6?
