I have decided to use throttle bodies on my 1.8 Zetec silvertop engine install.
To controll the fuel I intend to use megasquirt.
Ms2 V3 to be precise. Probably a higher spec than I need but who knows what will change in the future.
Having tried the msextraefi web site I find it is no longer available. :confused:
Looking for an alternate UK seller has drawn a blank.
I realy want to buy it in kit form.
I see this as all part of the challenge.
In any event it will give me a greater knowledge of the modern electronic engine controll systems. ;)
I am at the moment thinking of buying direct from the USA. I am a little concerned about being hammered for import duty though.
Just The VAT to pay or is there import duty to pay as well !!??
I have posted this on the other side. :rolleyes:
Thinking that this may be a valuable resource for the future on here as well. :)
Hey Ronnie, your dabbling in witchcraft you know, next thing you'll be getting a laptop to diagnose the the beast. :eek: :D :D
As far as vat and import duty goes, If you get the seller to send it as a "gift" then 9times out of 10 you will get away with it? Or at least I always have?
I know Rich.
Scary but exciting at the same time. :eek:
A bit like my good lady when she is after something. :D
After many,many years of tinkering with carbed engines with dizy & the likes it's time for a change.
At the outset I was adamant that I wanted to go the old school route. However, after reading the posts in support of moddern technology combined with a couple of constructive chats with Allan Jeferys son I became convinced that Zetec was the way to go.
Then the free 1.8 Zetec came out of the blue, that was the decider.
To be honest I am really looking forward to th challenges that lay ahead.
I'll dare say that I will live to regret those words when it all goes pear shaped a few months down the road. :o
I already have a small laptop loaded with some basic OBD2 software for reading fault codes & reseting engine check lights etc.
My oldest son spotted a 7" touch screen that you can build into the dash allowing you to do a bit of re mapping as you drive.
How extreme is that !!??
He is heck of a lot more interested in my build now that I am going moddern. Hence the offer to buy me a megasquirt for my BD. :D
i imported my ms2 v3 components in from the usa and it turned up in 4 days no duty to pay etc etc. havent built it yet. have tucked it away until the car is through the sva on the pinto lump.
i already have a 7inch touch screen for it and a pile of old pentium 4 laptops sitting around
keep us all updated on your progress as im sure you will finish yours well before me.
UK supplier of Megasquirt
Try Bill@shurvinton.fsworld.co.uk not always quick response but knows megasquirt back to front, good prices, good service, and UK. usually discount for more than one unit, group buy ?
Good luck Mike. :D :D :D
Mind you, if you keep chopping bits off with your grinder. I may very well do :D :D
I got some parts when i used megasquirt on my rs turbo (the engine is going in the roadster) from a company called DIY Autotune, they are in america but never had any problems with their service
Thanks for that James.
I have been looking at that site. If I end up buying from the USA thats who I will use as they look to be the main distributor of MS in the states. :)
Anyone know owt about microsquirt? used on bikes apparently so a lot smaller
