    My Arduino Mega boards have arrived so I spent a bit of time establishing communication and uploading the firmware and baseline tune to the boards. I also connected Tuner Studio to the board. Still waiting for the components for the Speeduino before I can make it up.

    I also finished the hard piping between the engine and the disconnects that I mounted to the moustache bar. There will be a small flexible line that runs between the these lines and similar lines mounted to the chassis that run forwards to the oil cooler and filter. I'm hoping that these will be less vulnerable than the old flexi lines that they have replaced.

    I've also been playing around with some COP solutions and have found one that works pretty well. I've been trying out a variety of different COP's trying to find one that fits the Type 1 setup. I've still got a few more on order and will try them out before I decided on which one I want to use but one works very well as COP and the other works well as a CNP solution.

    Also received the wire for my wiring loom and the case for the Speeduino ECU. Hopefully the rest of the components are not too far away.

Managed to get an hour or so on the bus today. Started to make up the hard lines for the oil system. Need to get these done before I can get the gearbox installed as they will be a pig to got done afterwards. I made up a bracket to terminate the hard lines into and provide a solid mounting point for the bulkhead fittings. From this bracket there will be flexi-lines running across to another bracket mounted to the chassis. The bracket will be welded onto the rear bar. Need to pick up a bender as mine only goes up to 1/2". More

  • Full steam ahead with the EFI electronics package. Sourced a two wire inlet air control valve that will work with MegaSquirt and fit my throttle body.

    Ordered a bunch of stuff to start making up the EFI wiring loom. Hoping to get the prototype installed and fired up soon.

Placed my order for the rest of my Speeduino components, including the Arduino Mega. Hopefully the parts should be here in a few days and I can get on with assembling the board. From what I understand I still need to run an external controller if I want to run wide band as the Speeduino only has on-board support for a narrow band. Managed to find a suitable controller for $35 -  https://www.14point7.com/products/spartan-2-oem The same company also offer an open source controller as well, should you want to tinker. The open source version includes an LCD display so that you can set it up as a real time display / dash gauge / LM2 substitute.

    My coolEFI board turned up just after my last post but it's just sat there waiting for me to pull my finger out and get on with installing the engine in the bus. I've also picked up some other goodies - A small hand held scope for helping diagnose signal issues. A freescale USBDM bootloader. For flashing firmware and a few other Megasquirt units.

    I've been toying with the idea of buying into a Megasquirt dealership as there's not really anyone doing it here in Aus but it's a bit of an up-front investment, and I'm not 100% convinced at this stage. Will have to see.
