Lol, I can see there being a price war

Did you get your kit direct 'n did you get stung for vat too?

Was the link any good - haven't looked at the nylon PU hose probably only comes by the roll but would be good for vacuum.

miniboo is in America so there would be no import taxes, etc...

It sounds like a good idea, but it could cause you loads of problems, imagine if someone brought one then when they came to fit it, it didnt work properly, then you would have to fix their problems.... so the initial idea sound great, however if any problems come up then everything might be a bit hectic.

I used 6mm push fit pneumatic pipe and fittings, but generally vac advance stuff would be smaller than that (probably 3 or 4mm).

yeah thats the problem see, if i run the MAP connection off the Carb then the pipe will need to be small at that end but big at the MJ end.

Yeah, the 6mm was a perfect fit on the MJ end to be honest. You can get reducers though from pneumatic suppliers. I could post you out some 6mm stuff that the standard carb type stuff would fit inside, you'd just need to seal the two together then.

Look on the first page, mine will work just fine for you, at least until you get to a rolling road tune up

Can't believe it'd be worth posting plastic pipe across the pond. you can buy it on Ebay uk for a couple of quid sure the same applies in the US.

you could probably scrounge the small amount you'd need.

The dizzy hole is ever so slightly over 27mm, shouldn't be too hard to bung up.

I'm not sure if anyone is really going to be that interested but....

I have recently contacted the makers of the DashDAQ (featured in last month’s Mini Mag) DashDAQ to see if they would support the MegaJolt ECU's.

For those who don't know what the DashDAQ is, it's basically a touch-screen controller that integrates with ECU's allowing you to manipulate the settings, run diagnostics and display real time info i.e. revs, speed etc....

My idea is to convert my Mini ignition to a MegaJolt setup and then use a DashDAQ to allow me to control the ignition maps and run data logging. The makers of the DashDAQ have suggested that they might be able to develop a driver that supports the MegaJolt.

Specialist Components sell the DashDAQ

Luke.
