      Ahhh that's exactly what I'm looking into...I love Corrado's I've built 3, including a ABT 3.3L Purple Morrado Monster oh how I miss it... (ABT head, crank, cams, sleeved block and all the goodies)

        • Yeah me too... In lieu of installing a more robust engine management system like ViPEC / Link, Chris opted to go back to the original setup with the dizzy, DME, and a 4" MAF to make sure there was nothing mechanically wrong with the setup. So now we are just waiting to the dyno-tuned chip.

          I think it was just the MegaSquirt mystery assembly by you know who... Two tuners attempted to get it running to no avail. It will be a hand me down to the MBZ EFI setup in the winter.

          Trust, I'm missing my car / tinkering... New EMS and harness for 2012 :(


          Hopefully before September

            Yes I know exactly who !!!!! if it wasn't for " you know who" I would still have the S14 in the car =/

            i think with the 4 inch MAF and a dyno tune you should be lookin prety

                Well , lets just say if you don't know everything..... or even enough to get a car 90% streetable on Megasquirt , don't claim you do.

                especially on such a sensitive motor like the S14.

                But its a local guy who isn't worth mentioning.

                  • Ha ha ha haaaaa! You know what Anders, sounds like Ara subliminally misses his S14 over the S52

                        • Forgive me for the absence of updates but there isn't much to report, except changed direction back to standalone and having Derek of DMS do the MS3/MSX & harness install so everything is sano this time around.

                          Parts waiting to install over the last I dunno... Hopefully this is THE month.

                          • Ahhh, I received news from Derek @DMS and he has completed the über sano MS3 assembly... And the harness install is underway! I think I can smell gasoline

                            • Hi, I like how they have built a new computer in to the original box so that the plug still fits and no mounting problems seems like ideal situation.

                                Me too Dave, I also like the standard Motronic DME case, it allows access via screws vs prying tabs that break and it has a rubber seal unlike the original water catching Bosch M3 unit, I don't understand the logic at the Motorsport dept. for that was...
