I decided to go with the megasquirt 2 DIY standalone FUEL/INGITION system. Its a nice ECU you can use practically any ignition system available today, as well as different coolant/air/knock/ and injectors. All you have to do is wire them in and program them.
Here is some of the wiring job.
Some of the tools /wiring required.
all done! this intake was heavily worked on when I was doing the rebuild. Its ported, as well as bigger throttle body. I also decided to weld/grind lots of openings on it to give it a cleaner look.
At this point the car is still not running right I figured its about time to get rid of the distributor setup that was the only thing running from the legacy setup. And go with a wasted spark coil pack.
Here is a coil pack from a v6 93-98 Ford (explorer, taurus, mustang)
Here is the trigger wheel off an explorer its a 36-1 wheel the missing tooth will let the ingition module figure out where TDC is.
Here is the wheel bolted to an adaptor that is bolted to the crank pulley you can see the VR sensor also bolted to the Timing cover. These parts where made by DEREK on Hybridz , he made this conversion much easier!
the Edis to MS schematic.
Here is the Ignition module it will be tucked right under the fender.
Now its all done the car is running nicely at this point !
The car got some new shoes! Rota RB 16x8 with Yokohomo S drive tires.
Some shots here
I removed the bumper and put on eurthane front kit. It really needs the bumper back on here!
Much cleaner with the Edis coil pack
There she is boy!
Finally out of the garage time for a wash.
Went for a littel ride.
Interio put back together (more plans here coming up)
Went wit ha Huge oversized intercooler(regret it actually) had to cut in to the rad support to make the pipes go through.
Here is some of the plumbing shots. its a Bar and plate style intercooler. With a 1 psi drop over 16 psi.
CURRENTLY THE CAR IS GETTING A WIDEBAND, tial BLOW OFF VALVE, tial EXTERNAL WASTEGATE, HEAD WORK, T3/T4 AN INCREASE OF BOOST AND A RE TUNE. Oh and an LSD thats been sitting in the basement.

nice build. the L28et is definately the way to go. take it easy
Hey thanks for the comment!
I did get the MS2 V3 running. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be. Just be patient and take your time. It starts up in about 1 or 2 revs and idles strong at about 700 rpms.
Now I just have to figure out the clutch/transmission problem before winter... But its getting cold now so it might not happen until spring :(
Your Z is very clean, I love how sweet that engine looks after that rebuild and those white gauges. Keep up the good work! All that hard work is worth it once it starts for the first time and you get chills!
