Megasquirt - Homebuilt ECU for your car
  • Tue, 2011-10-18 10:17

I use a Megasquirt II Extra in my 1983 Datsun 280 ZXT which has been bored, ported, stroked and had a bigger turbo put on it. Anybody that worked at Commodore in the early '80's probably walked by one of my Z's, it would usually end up getting parked in the lot in November as we got ready for CES, plowed under in December and around February it would become visible again.  One year we towed it in March leaving behind a sad little pile of rust, bolts and pieces of metal, I used my bonus for delivery of the C128 to buy another Z that gave it's life for CBM.

You can build a Megaquirt yourself or buy completed ones.  I ended up making my recent purchases at, good one stop shop.  Below is a vid from youtube showing assembly of one.  I recommend getting the stimulator shown that simulates an engine for purposes of setting up and troubleshooting the MS.
