Got my DSM 450cc injectors in and running well. I hope I have the PWM values correct, but I think I do. Not really worried about it.

So there you go folks. For $200 and with no mods needed on the board, you can control any size injector, high or low impedance. I see no reason for future turbo builds to use the bandaids that the miata community has used in the past. No more AFPRs, no E-manages. Ignition is quite a bit more complicated, so if all else fails, one could use a MS and a Bipes.

Spark'd. I used all of Kingofleets settings, except when he did it, cranking timing was apparently not changeable. I set mine to trigger return instead of time based, and it started great. Now if I ever get a downpipe built for this thing, I can get it on the road.

Yeah I hooked mine up wrong first too. I'm interested to hear how yours comes along, since I haven't gotten past idle since I have no DP (no O2).

SPARK! (for real this time!) Had the spark outputs connected to the wrong side of the resistors. The BOTTOM of the resistors (heatsink is the top) on a V3 board is the correct side.

The difference is small between V3 and V2.2, but it made a huge difference for a noob like me.

Haha thanks, but you forgot 2/10 for actual electrical knowledge!

It's great to have you and kingofleet here.

I hope to be contributing some settings to your thread, but I have 85hrs scheduled for work this week. Got it figured out just in time!

I'm assuming you are using the stock 1.8 coils? How'd you set those up? I've been seeing a lot of folks fry them... I'm currently debating the DSM coil swap for MS.

Thanks, but apparently 1.6s are much more durable. I think the ideal setup for a 1.8 would be VB921s and DSM coils.

Why did you sell yours?

I bought some neon coils to use, gotta get some spark plug wires though. It only cost me 10 bucks.

Bottom line....TIME

I hope to be back though, it's just too cool. Megasquirt is one of those things you have to build and install yourself in a resonable time period. I know that I would forget everything by next winter, so I figured I 'd start over. My unit ended up into a probe turbo.

I had my EM installed the same day I received it, upgraded the firmware to 1.47K, & mounted a 5th injector... Hell- I know the wiring harness by heart now, didn't even need to look at a pinout of the stock ecu...

For the moment I'd recommend the DSM coils. They are great. But, I'll be working on getting the 1.8L coils working hopefully we can have a plug and play setup going for the 1.8L's.

Nathan got the 1.8l coils working already with the VB921s, I posted the spark settings he uses without blowing them in its own topic a couple weeks ago.
