I have not used it, thought of picking one up to try but haven't yet.  You can use it with any MS or other aftermarket as it communicates directly to your laptop or other device, then you just import the data into megalogviewer along with the appropriate datalog.

MS Droid allows you to log GPS data along with your datalogs using the GPS already in your device, a tablet in my case. It's pretty cool. As the log progresses so does the dot on your map.
Here is an example of that it looks like

Id be interested in a system for a 4G6x swapped SQ soon as i get my hands on the car. I like the idea of a clean new plug and play electrical system for the car.

The plug and play systems are designed to plug into the factory wiring harness, it sounds like you want a new harness.  I have solutions there as well.

What a thread this is... scott you are an artist man.

I'll be running a mostly stock setup for a while, but a small project I am interested in doing is adding an arduino controller to the car to add some I/O for auxiliary sensors / warning lights, and possibly even parking sensors (no airdam scrapes).

You ever work with any of that?

No specifically an arduino but a controller is a controller, I've been doing chemical process control for 30 years now.  It's all the same under the hood.

Scott I just purchased a Magna MPI and will be looking at engine controllers. Will the MS3 mounted in a stock case with a new engine harness for MPI be something you could do? You can PM with info if you like. Thanks

Done it several times so yes, I can do that.  Tell me more about what part of the harness you want new as putting the new ECU in a stock case is really intended to utilize the factory wiring.  The only difference between TBI and MPI to the wiring it two more injector clips.  Unless you go full sequential injection like my MPI car and I have factory wiring solutions for that too.

Scott I dont mind pulling a new harness to the engine. How do you like that full sequential setup? Im thinking that it would idle great and have very nice throttle response.

It idles great and has very nice throttle response.  Seriously, you can tell side by side which car is sequential, much smoother.

Just another example of an FIP box doing things never envisioned by Ed or Scott at FIP (I am NOT Scott from FIP if anyone is confused).  This box started life as an Ignition Pro box, I had formerly converted it to be an FC-1S running ignition control for a Starquest client.  He was running into ignition issues with EDIS and wanted to keep the crank trigger so this box was further converted to accept a VR input from the 36-1 crank trigger wheel as well as run wasted spark COP or CNP (as yet not determined) including launch control.  The four coil outputs are logic level and can run smart coils directly such as the LS2 coils or the Mercury Marine uber high output coils OR with the addition of a coil driver pack can run the two wire COP systems that I offer.

I am currently working on a mounting system for the Mercury Marine CNP coils, more to come on that in my COP thread.

WoW you are awesome!
like to know the difference of the marine vs others as far as output? cost a lot more?

DIYAutotune sells the coils, being a distributor I can sell them at their list price and save someone shipping fees.  I'm going to be offering a mounting system where these will sit above the plugs on top of the VC, they are much bigger than the COP systems I sell so it gets crowded but so far it looks like there is enough room.

Posted Image





What got my attention was DIY had them tested independently with a host of other coil options including the LS2 truck coils and a Pro Mag 44 amp coil and the only coil to outperform them was the Pro Mag.  The Pro Mag lists at $739 each at Jegs where the Mercury Marine coils are $67 each.  They are a smart coil with a built in 19 amp ignitor circuit and three (3)! grounds (trigger, block and battery).  Spark blowout will no longer be an issue.



Coil specs:
Minimum voltage output (no load, at recommended dwell): 40,000 volts
Output energy: 103 mJ
Spark duration: 2.9 ms
Primary resistance: 0.5 ohms (not directly measurable)
Primary inductance: 4.8 mH (not directly measurable)
Secondary resistance: 8,500 ohms
Secondary inductance: 22.5 H
Turns ratio: 71.1
Maximum current: 19 amps
Maximum battery voltage: 17 volts
Nominal dwell: 3.0 ms

dumb questions here but  does the megasquirt work with the stock ISC.  I'm trying to delete the maf and use a map. I also want something expandable for when I'm ready to go mpi. I would like to be able to run the stock tbi for a while and just have a lil more adjustability. Also is there any other special things that I need to do or change if I was to run a megasquirt

Depends if you want to manage fuel only or go fuel and spark.
Fuel only probably real easy to do.

Megasquirt can be changes to run anything from 1 to 12 cylinders. 2 or 4 stroke.

No aftermarket ECU will run the stock ISC, it's an odd beast that reverses polarity.  You can run a PWM or stepper idle valve with some custom plumbing.  As far as "anything else". It depends upon what you want to accomplish with ignition and other features like rev limiters, launch control and such.  And yes you can run TBI.now and easily move to MPI later.
