Default Some new pictures

I finally got around to taking some pictures after my Megasquirt install. Some people were asking about the harness and whatnot. Today, I spent some time fabricating an intake pipe from a 2.5" mandrel bend, first real fab work Ive done so far. Anyway, enjoy ... and yes I know its got a pretty fucked up interior but nobody seems to car when i step on the gas now

For this one, notice the timeslips, the dashboard smily face (compliments of my soldering gun), and the gauges showing it idling at 15:1 AFR and about 23 inches/32kpa

Thank you I'd written off the interior long ago and figured the car was a racecar and racecars do not need to be pretty. That harness is a boomslang female ecu harness. i can unplug it and plug the stock ecu in if i want ... although it wouldnt start. I did that so when emissions testing time comes in a year, i can put the AFM and stock injectors back on and pass without worries.

If i had an early model that wasn't very pretty, it would be stripped and shitty looking but i guarantee it would be fast.
Just like yours! (fast, not shitty looking)

I would consider wrapping the heater core hose that passes across the downpipe.

So you ran an IAT sensor line into the stock engine harness? Did you also do something engine harness side for the fuel pump?

nah, my parents went to greece for spring break so i get to watch their nice big house for em. Been staying there every night actually, nice tv, pool, spa, free food, garage to do work in with tools like a mig welder, bench grinder, etc. The Camry is my sisters first car. My 97 (not pictured) is a miata and it is stock. Its really a lot of fun to drive out of the box.
