Stand Alone Question:

Recommended Posts

The dream thing would be to build a plug and play ECU for our cars, like a MS built in a Volvo ECU.

Many people talk about it but no company have done it yet.

Let's work through the details, and assuming I can find the connector which is often the hardest part; This may not be a problem....

Not a problem with junk yard contacts, there is tons of N/A ECU´s out there.

Our ECU´s are mounted in a box in the engine bay, sticking down in a terminal and locked by a steel brace.

Really easy to remove, like 30 sec.

Any ECU pics guys?

We can use a coil pack system and ditch the distributor all together correct? That would probably be the route I would rather take.

Yes, but there really is no need.

No need, ha, Why not???

I would rather have coil packs any day over our sorry distributor cap/coil design. This is huge improverment over stock system for the <98 Volvo's but for you 19T fellas I can understand having it as an option.

On the ECU Conectors-- I'd need to find an OEM source as junkyarding connectors is a really rough way to try and run a business and keep the quality ultra-high....

On running coil packs... you can do this and the 60-2 wheel will work perfectly with the MS-I/MSnS-E wheel decoder, but it's a step or two up in complexity in building out your system. Very do-able though....

It's an improvement but not really worth the headache at least for me.

I would think it be much more tuner friendly over a distributor. :shrug: It's still somewhat plug n play for the most part just have to do a little more configuring.

Mmm, that's true. On the few MS' I've seen/done they kept the distributor so I take back what I say since I can't really talk from a coilpack standpoint/experience.

I know, this is a off topic, but what kind of intercooler / radiator does Rocko use? Does he still have an AC?

Cheers,

He use a custom IC and stock radiator. I will slap him if he still got AC, I don´t think so. :D

Really? Is there room for this intercooler piping using the original radiator. I think I'll have to have a look in my car. In this case a Cosworth RS500 style intercooler might fit!

You can lower the radiator a bit and get some room for pipes. Maybe 1 inch or so.
