Hi I need some help on hooking the Tach up to the megasquirt i know there are a few that are running megasquirt with wasted spark so how do you get a tach signal i have selected iac1 as my tacho out put do i just hook that up to the tach wire or do i need to do something more?
I hate it when a company sells you something but they are out of it but don't tell you then you wait and wait and they try fooling you by printing a shipping label but 7 days after the USPS still hasn't posted it as shipped so i have opened a case against 14point7. Just send me my parts wtf
tomorrow i will test my tach signal with another tach to see if i am getting a signal then i will go from there. I still havent made the speedometer work it looks like i don't have a signal due to the light is supposed blink when you have a signal from what i understand

Well i got the new fuel pump relay hooked up with 30 amp circuit breaker so the problem of eating stock relay is over . I see Dakota Digital makes a GPS speedometer interface and it has both sine wave and square wave output signal so when i can afford one i will buy one and solve that problem.
Thanks it looks better than it really is it is going to need paint and like i said the wires need a bit of untangling and i need a coolant expansion / fill tank so i can get rid of the coolant hose going over the top of the engine you know just a bunch of small things
Had good weather today been driving the car and i got the windows all rewired now i am going to do some more bracing on the cradle tomorrow then i will start working on getting the new nose i bought for the car a few years back on . maybe some day this thread will be in the construction zone
Well i consider this engine swap a complete success sure it is not the fastest 1/4 mile car but it runs good and pulls hard up through the rpm's sounds great and the engine looks like it belongs there . i say to any one who wants to do this swap they should and if you want more power you can go with a turbo or a S8 40 valve engine .

I just moded the Porsche shifter it was straight on the sift knob rod unlike the fieros that bends so i cut it down and cut off a Fiero shift knob rod and welded it on now it sits in a better place when shifting the only other thing i would like is if the throws where shorter i may mod that to

today i worked on the exhaust getting it so the tips sat in same place and put hangers on now it looks good . I was chased down today by a guy who had a V8 fiero some years back he said he missed his Fiero then i showed him the Audi V8 and explained why i used it .
today i took the car for a ride and hooked the laptop up and ran EFI Analytics TunerStudio analyzer live this tunes the car while driving .while i was diving i felt a brake dragging so i checked it out by putting my hand near each brake rotor and found the right front hot so i know that brake is dragging i am not sure why it is dragging but i will check out tomorrow
