I believe the new version of Microsquirt has most of the features of the Megasquirt 2 system.

Very small and compact. Ideal for the bike & all things small.

Not fitted with an onboard MAP sensor, though no problem using an external one.

That's what I have read so far.

Default Parcel Farce has been

My Megasquirt kit has arrived today.

I was stung 30 for the VAT No import duty though.

8 days from order to delivery ( From the USA ). Good going, being as Parcel farce has had it for 3 of them.




OOHH lots of tiny bits in there.

That will be fun with my clumbsy mits & dodgy eyesight.

I'll keep you all posted with my progress.

I originally tought I would save a few quid but by the time my stim arrives + a few more bit n bobs, probably just as cheap to buy from the UK

I tend to learn new skills more easy by doing, this was my prime reason for wanting to go the kit route.
I must say, from reading the manuals I have learnt a great deal about all things modern.

I dare say that I will have a few problems here & there, but that is all part of the learning process.

It is all going quite well at the moment & I am pleased about that.

Both my wife and eldest have been taking bets on how long it will take for me to throw it out of the window.
