I have a megasquirt 2 extra, going to run it as wasted spark on the v12 in my Fiero. There is a lot of good help and advice on the forum if you need any.

Checked out the MegaSquirt website. Looks like you have to assemble the PCB yourself. Its a good idea to use the 25w pencil soldering iron as they suggest to assemble the PCB. A few posts up you mention a soldering gun. Too hot for PCB work. Easy to damage the components by overheating with a gun. Take your time and it should be fine.

BR's,

Mark

That's awesome I'm glad it worked well! I'm still thinking of building one using a passat trans and s4 twin turbo v6 but $$$ and I bought a 69 olds with a 455 that needs work instead of a fiero because of the back seat.

Doing soldering right takes time. Take the necessary time and don't shortchange your future self.

Very cool build. My wife and I both drive v-dubs as our daily drivers, so the thought has crossed my mind to stuff some VAG engine in my Formula. Nice to see someone actually doing it.

I am using the stock Bosch 0 227 100 211 ignition module so it takes 5V it works by grounding and ungrounded the coils so it is nothing but a switch or should i say 4 switches in 1 module you hook the coils up in pairs to it on the in side you have 5 wires 1 is a ground and the others are the trigger wire on the out side of it are the coil neg wires

Wow, should have read the thread... I was no help at all, sorry about that. But yeah, to directly control the 3500 coil pack it's the same deal, except I don't need 'Spark D'.
