Well after what felt like forever and a headache caused by the engine shop, then that issue somehow slipping past the dealership, we started the car tonight after the engine build and turbo kit install.

It's alive! (my mom was a bit excited lol)

I fixed your video link, for the future, just click on the IMG code, that will automatically copy it. Then click in the text box on mt.net and press ctrl-V.

Congrats on getting it going, now enjoy it!

Thanks curly....but that's what I did?

Work? Haha I've got school tomorrow (senior in college). Maybe I'll call in to work tuesday... lol. It'll see action as soon as the weather gets better. I guess we've got another cold front moving in. Plus I need to get back to work on my new daily driver 240sx, which needs an engine.

It might've just had a signal "[" deleted by accident, I didn't look into it much.

After learning a bit more about the megasquirt and adjusting my injector dead time, the car idles pretty well. I got to it today and got it all set up. We just got home from the first drive about a half hour ago and I couldn't be happier with the results. After a little smoothing of the map, the car is very drivable in town and cruises at a safe afr in every gear. I'm sure the fuel map is going to have to change drastically when we can give it more throttle, but for now at limited throttle and not going over 3500 rpm or so it's going great!

Can't wait to drive it again. Hopefully we'll have it out tomorrow. So far, 35 miles on the engine.
