|As of Late 2003, this
controller is no longer in production. The information on this site is
general enough to apply to other aftermarket EFI systems. If you are not
afraid of a soldering iron, then look into the DIY Megasquirt Kit at www.megasquirt.info

- 4 Cylinder Turbo Fuel Injection Controller $500 (The non-turbo model is $400,
but that's not as fun)
|You can make this yourself from connectors scrounged at the junkyard.
The one pictured is from Tim Systems. They are cheap and well worth the money
unless you have easy access to the wire and connectors. ($40)
|Please refer to the turbo page and print that out to bring to the junkyard
Expect to pay between $25 and $100 for a boneyard turbo.

you can buy rebuild parts.

(Test with a 12 volt battery at the junkyard to be sure it spins up.)
|Fuel Pump Block-off Plate:
|This is something I had laying around. You can make one pretty
easily or just remove the fuel pump push rod and bolt the pump back on.
|Fuel Pressure Gauge:
|Summit Racing Fuel
For tuning purposes you will want something to tell you your fuel pressure.
You do not need to see it while driving though.
|Any steel filter for a fuel injection car should work. I chose a Fram 10
Micron filter from Summit. ($40) It has a replaceable element. It's heavy and
big and maybe a little overkill.s

Used after 1968 on the Bosch D-Jetronic cars: VW 68-73 Type III, Porsche
70-76 914 1.7L or 2L, Saab 69-74, Volvo, Renault 72-74.

Tim Systems sells modified regulator for $50.
MSD repackages the above regulator with a pressure port already in the
adjustment screw. Search Summit
Racing for Part # MSD-2222 ($61)
(grab the electrical connectors to the injectors also)
|Refer to the injector page for the full blown application chart. Expect to
pay about $5 a piece. Get more than you need and choose the 4 that have the
closest flow rate.
Tim Systems sells 4 cleaned, flowed and tested injectors for $150.
|Plumbing compression fittings are the cheapest way to go. The fittings in
the picture are 3/8 compression fitting on one side and 1/2" pipe fitting
on the other. These can be soldered or brazed to the intake or you can tap a
large steel nut with a 1/2" pipe tap and weld that to a steel
manifold. You can also purchase injector bungs from
MSDignitions.com or other places.
|When you are junkyard shopping look for one that can be mounted easily.
Ignore the idle bypass lines and do not use a dual plate progressive throttle.
That will confuse the controller.
