Yeah, they are truley old school. He did not want an impact to cam out and dent or scratch the metal part of the dash, so instead they used a #3 with one person turning and the other person pushing down.

Either way - he got it out.

 

on another note....did you move?

Aye, but that's the advantage of an impact...not camming out, especially since you can focus all your energy pushing down.

 

I did...living the dream

If you look at the brackets that hold that dash up, they would not survive a hit with an impact screwdriver/hammer.  😄

My paint sucks and IM still afraid to drive it around.

Thats why at this stage not worrying about paint anymore.  Its the driving that's the fun bit 🙂  for now anyway.

 

I do love the understated finish this color has.

Megasquirt PNP ECU for a KA Nissan.

 

Lets see if this helps the rich running condition....

First thing off the bat was that the throttle Position Sensor would not calibrate with the new MS ECU. Tested it and it was bad...so now I'm pretty sure I found out what was making it run so rich!! LOL.

 

New one is on order!

Got the MS2 installed and running! It runs better already on the "base" tune map installed. There is an option to install an Intake Air Sensor (IAT) and wire it in place of the MAF, so I ditched the factory MAF and ran new a new intake without. Full 2.75 to 3" filter now and ditched the intake pipe over the radiator set up.

 

Now the real fun begins .... tuning.

🤪

I would imagine you would get cooler air on the left side right @FrankRizzo?

 

I would think so (The exhaust is on the left side), plus the advantage of an upsize to a full 2.75/3" intake. I had to run 2.5" brake duct to the other side of the bay because it was the only thing that would fit around my oversized radiator...

 

I need to find black anodized hose clamps....

Used the MAP setup

Not sure if you are asking a question? Yes, MS2 uses the MAP to run speed density. I tapped into the vacuum line that feeds the fuel pressure regulator

Looking forward to long term testing on the MS2 🙂 

 

Keep you p0sted...I think im going to try the Nice Time Racing coil-on-plug kit since I can fire the igniters from the MS2...and because it looks cool. Then maybe upsize the injectors.
