EFI - DIYPNP stand alone ecu

Recommended Posts

Guest JoooeOne

so im going stand alone next pay check,i got in my mind the diypnp microsquirt its cheap 425,my friends they allready have one runnig but its in a ae86 and i heard that tunnig na and turbo is another different story i guess im gona need some help tunnig like whats a good A/F ratio heres the link of the page http://www.diyautotune.com/catalog/diypnp-nippon-denso-76pin-unassembled-kit-p-384.html

 

the 76 pin ecu is not made for the 1jz but it is made for the supra mk3 so i will be getting a 7m wiring harness and modifying it

heres a video of a 2jz on a 4 runner

and heres a 1jz on a e36 running on a megasquirt ecu

 

diyautotune.com send me a questionnaire about the engine specs because like i send the ecu pins are not made for the 1jz so i will have to swap some sensors here are the questions i got the most obvious ones

 

1. What year/make/model/engine/tranny? (Pretend you're at the parts store, ordering a starter.) If this isn't the original engine/electronics let me know that too.1992 toyota cressida 1jzgtevvti 1999

2. Are you looking to control fuel only, ignition only, or fuel and ignition? Is there anything beyond these features that you are looking to control - fans or boost, for example?.boost vvti ignition

3. What are the engine details (type, number of cylinders, previously fuel injected or carb'd?).inline 6 turbo fuel injected

4. What type of ignition system does your car run- where is the crank angle sensor (CAS) or distributor trigger wheel and what type is it (Optical/LED Sensor? Hall Sensor? VR Sensor?) i need help on this one

5. How many teeth/windows/slots and what orientation does the CAS, crank trigger, and/or distributor wheel have? (any missing? all evenly spaced?) HELP!!!

6. Is there a distributor? Single/Multiple Coils? Coil on Plug?.MULTIPLE COILS wasted spark

7. Does this engine have a fast idle valve (IAC)? If so, how many wires are connected to it? Do you know if it is an on/off, pulse width modulated, thermal, or stepper type? it had one is a electronic one

8. Rate yourself 1-5 on technical confidence in yourself. 1 being "I can't paint by numbers" and 5 being "I can probably build a car from scratch if I have the right documentation, and I'm resourceful enough to do some research and find some of my own answers." I need to know this as some of the 'less traveled' roads will require you to make modifications that in some cases I haven't performed myself yet and based on this response it will help me to know whether this type of solution is for you or not. I challenge you to 'stretch yourself' a little bit. You won't ever learn anything (about yourself and your abilities) if you don't try to do things that you're not quite sure you can do... and then find that you can.3 but my friends a 5+

9. Are you looking to build your own ECU from a kit or buy a pre-assembled ECU?yes

10. Are you open to retrofitting a different ignition system such as the Ford EDIS distributorless system or one of our crank trigger kits if it is determined that the MegaSquirt will not properly (or easily) control your factory ignition system? Many factory systems MegaSquirt can simply take control of, some it cannot. EDIS to the rescue! It's cheap, simple and works great! yes

 

so here it is peeps any help will be greatfull

If you don't know what a good air/fuel ratio is, you probably shouldn't tackle tuning on your own. Spend the extra money and get a reliable tuner to do it.

are you serious? if you dont know the answers to some of these questions dont do it yourself... a bad tune or something wired wrong can= bang bang for your engine

ive playing with megafail on a itb'd 16v. it wasnt all that jazz. Save the $$ get a real standalone on a real tune. you wont regret it

megasquirt may be cheap, but it's not easy. if you don't know what the fuck you're doing, which you obviously don't, the car will never fucking run.

Typical Mega-Dribble inquirey on a supra forum:

 

1) Hey, who runs a mega-shit ?

2) Hey, I just bought a mega-shit, how do I.......?

3) Hey, got the car running on my mega-shit, but now.....

4) I've got a complete mega-shit for sale !

Vvt-i Crank trigger wheel is 36-2, and has a 3 tooth cam trigger

 

Pretty sure they are VR type sensors, though you should research that because I'm not positive. I know jzxpwns had a friend with a vvti engine on megasquirt, maybe hit him up. It was a celica/supra, so might wanna look through their shit.

 

I would say for simplicity get a haltech platinum sport 1000. Does vvti adjustments in degrees on their software if I remember right. A truly kick ass little ecu for about a grand. You can switch to full cable throttle body and probably get maps to start with for a jzx100 engine from a few people that will get you in the ballpark.

 

Also, since your iacv was in the throttle body you'll have none anymore, but who cares? You're in a decent climate

From other shit that you've done, I'd say go MegaSquirt. You could probably get one for cheap off a dickhead from SM (one of those fail people that Gordon mentioned). Another method has been using a honda apexi ECU.

 

I say DIY cuz you are smart and you'll learn more even if you go to something else later.

If you're going to use any form of megasquirt, do it yourself from the ground up, get to know what you're doing, fix your own issues, get an electrical engineering degree in the process, and don't plan on DDing the car for a while until you beat your head against the wall enough to fix all the issues and then find someone competent to tune it.

 

I had a megasquirt 1 in my AE86 with a 20 valve. After the initial hiccups in setting it up and figuring out how to tune for open ITBs it ran really well.

 

I recently bought a megasquirt 3X with all the bells and whistles for my cressi but I likely won't install it for a couple months. People say megasquirts suck, but the problem isn't with the units, it's the people who think that building/installing/tuning your own standalone ECU is going to be easy and inexpensive, then realize they're in way over their head and have no clue wtf they're doing. I know two guys who have been running megasquirts for close to 8 years, both run great and make pretty impressive power.

^or they've messed with some of the more expensive standalones that have some features, or better workign features than the previous versions of megasquirt had.

 

megaderp3 fixes a lot of those issues, and it has a reeeallly good setting for itbs. it'll likely be the SA of choice for NA folks.

honda apexi? it will work? does it have to be any special honda ecu?

hell yeah bro im gona build from the ground up!!! the only thing thats holding me down is that here in mexico we dont have dynos but o well probably gonna do freeway pulls

people have mentioned honda boxes here. The ECU plugs come off a 90s accord or some shit. Then you stick 2J software in it and take it to someone who can tune apexi.

Are you sure you don't mean AEM, Jacob? Because AEM works like that. Wire it to your harness, setup the parameters for Jz in the setup on the software, tune.

rthats to much bro hahaha ima experiment with the megasquirt and will be lloking for some one to tune it in SD hopefully i find someone ill keep every one posted on this shit how to build it and probably mild tune it

That may have been the problem, you were not thinking properly with the alky level being low.

Seen it before.

Back in '77 I worked with a guy that came to work every day completely stoned.

One day he was out of weed, and came to work without toking up.

Ended up in the emergency room after getting his hand into the milling machine he was running.

cool bro............so a aem honda ecu will work?

You realize I posted links to Honda AEM's that will work... Others might work too. I'm not sure what specifically about them makes them work for multiple engines.
