I finished off the last bit of testing (recording the current draw for injector and coil circuits) and removed the exhaust ready for moving the engine out to the bus. Installation is imminent. But before I put the engine in I need to confirm the location for the ECU and fit a bulkhead fitting for the wiring loom which will be heaps easier to do before the engine is in.

    The ECU will be mounted under the rear seat so I need to find an appropriate location to take the loom from under the seat out along the drivers side chassis rail into the engine bay.

    The only other 'major' thing to sort out is a new mount for the oil filter. I need to raise this up as I'm using a sandwich plate to add a couple of sensors. It's a relatively minor job but one that will consume a few hours as I also need to re-route the sensor wiring.

  • Finally managed to get the ignition system finished off. Parts are on order for the first batch of units.

    Added a bunch of features which should hopefully cater for most set ups.

    Boost control
    Inlet air temp compensation
    Engine temperature compensation
    Voltage dwell compensation

Finally managed to finish the wiring loom off for the bus. This allowed me to get the ECU hooked up and commission everything. I calibrated the wideband sensor, set the TPS limits, added in the three point references for the temperature sensors, tested the crank trigger and the Idle stepper, fired the injectors and coil packs and checked that everything was working as it should.

    Now it's just a case of getting the engine back in the bus and seeing if she will start.

    Not long now

I made up a quick bracket to test out the chosen location and it appears to work pretty well. I will make up a better bracket when I've got the plasma back up and running.  More ...

    Two pictures of our bus in USA - still with the grey overpaint.
    The other ones are already in Austria - we tried to bring back the original seablue paint.
    And already finished the metal work!
