Default Anyone have an msq for a high compression 1.8?

9.5:1, 1.8l, 1000cc injectors. I just need it to start up. I probably won't run it longer than thirty seconds since I have no sensors hooked up other than tach. Thanks in advance!

Why would you want to start it anyway if all you have is the tach hooked up? Lolwtf

You didn't give any pertinent details, like NA/NB, or MS1/MS2/MS3, etc etc. All MSQs are not the same...

Since when is 9.5:1 considered high compression?

It's a '94, I said NA. Could I possibly run a tune for an NB? I'm going to be messing with the tune, but I'd like to have a timing map that I know won't blow up

You run the tune you have the sensors for. If you have a 94 harness and sensors, run a 94 tune. .5 difference in compression isn't going to matter if you're just running it for 30 seconds. If you're really that paranoid, you can run a spark map from a 99+ (I can dig up one of my old ones, you don't want the one I'm running now since I'm running on 87 octane).
