+3, but with ford EDIS for ignition. Im doing this project on a 7mgte supra as we speak. Cant believe how simple it is with the ford ignition.

+4 for megasquirt. You need to be reasonably electronics savvy.
Megasquirt isn't simple, especially if you're building it yourself.

An FMU is a bit of a "hack" in my opinion - it's better than nothing but can only be properly tuned at one load point... Usually WOT.

There are other options - like FAST and SDS. They're both over $1500, you'll lose tach and AC function.

If you're not electronics savvy and can't solder, I sell "plug and play" megasquirt harnesses for the 22RE.
You can get a pre-configured megasquirt.. I can program for free. Literally you can put this system in and have it running in less than 10 minutes. You retain all stock functions. If you bought it all retail, cost is under $500.

EDIS is a better ignition system, but you'll lose the tach and you'll also lose the AC.. You'll have to add an additional ciricuit out of megasquirt to provide a correctly conditioned signal for those functions.

This was a photo of a test stage harness.

For turbo motors, there are various options on this harness. The main differences are if you're going to use the stock AFM or not use it.

Photo of the harness used for the above engine.
It's +4 wires:
12v switched (to run a relay)
Intake air temp (I removed the AFM)
Wideband 02

The stock ECU, wiring & sensors for a 22r-te... If you're running more boost, or a better turbo than that engine originally came with.
megasquirt FTW
