Default $350 DIY standalone EMS... worth a look.

*update* i got the wrong link to the mr2 board... just fixied it.

i saw this over on the mr2 board and thought some of you guys may like this... http://homepages.ihug.com.au/~jharm/kit.htm
here is a link on the mr2 board of a few people "playing" with them http://www.board.mr2faq.com/showthre...hreadid=126492

it uses all the stock sensors and crap (has onboard map sensor) so no need to go out buying new crap... the sweetest part i see is that it controls the stock ignition crap.

one of the guys on the board has even made a plug and play harness so if he sold the car down the road there would be no permanet modification to the car.

sweet stuff

Hey, someone linked to that on HT. It looks like a pretty sweet setup... not quite AEM by any stretch, but you could call it poor man's AEM without implying a lack of quality.

If there's serious interest in this unit, I'll sticky this thread up with the rest. I'm more than happy to offer free assembly if somebody's got the duckets and is curious.

*quote from rickyB on the mr2 board*
f it works as advertised, this system is just as good as any EMS out there. There are some things I like about it more than the TEC3 and some things that I like about it less. It will handle all of the stock sensors (except the AFM which you just get rid of) and operate all of the stock accessories and controls. It has an integrated knock sensor capability, can run the stock or just about any external ignition including a direct fire ignition that you want to and even operate the stock idle speed control valve. It appears to be tailor-made to the 3sgte. It is highly configurable in term of the outputs it provides. I will control water injection, nitrous, boost and even has a turbo timer feature. I won't know if all these things will work for sure until I get it built and running on Mark's car, but it looks very promising from what I've played with and read so far. I can't wait to get my hands on it and put it together.





i will be picking one of these up when i have the money.

I doubt the comparison to EMS; it lacks the configurability. It still sems like a solid unit,

FYI, I was lent an EMS for three weeks - it's sitting on my floor right now, gets installed Saturday morning, and I'll have a review up shortly. I also have Hyundaidata 4B (much love Doug, can't resist the poke at you) on loan for review. All this ---- will be done, uhm, before hell freezes over.
