Hi all, sold my vmax supercharger kit, going turbo.
People’s thoughts and experiences with engine management, eg megajolt etc.
Very interested to go down this path.
Running carb so it won’t need to control fuel at all.
Any and all advice/comments welcomed.
Cheers
Chris

Most use megajolt, but ultimately it depends on what you want the ecu to do. There is NODIZ as well, i dont know much about that. Im using megajolt, ive only had it powered on the bench to load a map onto it.

Currently fitting a Polestar ignition system to mine. 20 years after fitting one of the first ones to the metro.

Megajolt is adequate, but has it lost its price advantage since the EDIS bits will have become harder to find?

 

MJ + Edis vs Nodiz + MAP sensor as I see it.

 

 

Or is Speeduino the new Megajolt/squirt????

Although I run MJ and have no problems with it, the more I look at Nodiz the more I think it’s a great option for the price.

I'd run Nodiz if on a carb. Great ecu and software!

My friend has been using the CB performance module on his with a supercharger. It has a MAP sensor so you can adjust the ignition map for boost. It uses a standard distributor as the crank angle sensor (you need to lock out the mechanical advance)

Looks very promising, I’ll dig a little deeper.
Thanks

Some sort of mapable ignition is a must. Check out megasquirt nz. They are in Tauranga

whatever yopu go for I would suggest going for somthing that does away with the dizzy totally and runs from a toothed crank trigger, as your eliminating possible mechanical problem areas.

 

Speeduino looks good but its aimed at injection too and is still a bit home build, so not as off the shelf fit. Nodiz is probably your best option.

 

Pesonally I'd like to run injection too but thats just me, it is a lot more work, but it gives you that much more control.

Are you planning on mapping it yourself? If not speak to tuners you’re likely to use and see what they recommend would be my advice.

Also aldon amethyst. I've got it on both of mine. Mappable in boost, dwell etc. Easy to use and fit.
