MS3 FTWThanks man. Some progress pics coming soon. Been jumping around a bit, but making progress. I also ordered a bunch of stuff that I was waiting on.
New Harnesses for cabin side of MS3 + MS3x as well as the MS3 processor upgrade and lots of other little stuff.
I will be upgrading MS on my PG/G60 in the next couple of days from MS1 to MS3. I could stay MS1 (even on the new setup), but MS3 is unbelievable and the MS3 (Expansion board) makes most of the items that I was planning in building custom circuits for plug and play.
Fully sequential Fuel and Spark using the 20v COPs, + TONs of other useful inputs and features.
Nice, now lemme get a base map ........:laugh:So, I have been busy learning the ropes of MS3 and the G60/PG is running again. I ended up changing a few inputs/outputs around which will help in the motor swap. I added a VSS in as well so now the logs will show gearing, Speed and you can set up things to calc Tq and Hp, etc (thanks Jeff for the tip!). Already MS3 is better than I imagined.
I have also been making some small progress on other fronts, but mostly spending money and acquiring parts
:thumbup: Didn't know you could load your MS1 maps, thought you would have had to start from scratch, but I'm not too familiar with it, yet Can't wait tho, mad :heart: for MShaha, still have to tune it, but no biggie. Used my base maps from MS1, imported and interpolated to 16x16 maps. Should be a good start. Fires right up and idles great
:laugh:it probably started before vortex existed......
ZING :laugh:Funny story though, my daughter came out in the garage the other night and was watching me work. Apparently, she is going to be a typical woman becuase her exact word were (and I sh!t you not), "...and dad, when you are going to finally put this new motor in? I'm tired of looking at it..." wtf :screwy:
That's why you should ditch the LM1 and go with LC1 and lemme know how you plan to put that controller inside the cabin :laugh:For now... I had to put the LM1 control box beneath the glove box since MS3 is much taller than MS1. I amthinking that I will try to put it where the ABS ECu is when I swap to the new motor since I will be going to non-ABS. Just not sure there is enough room there. I really don;t mind it in the glove box though. We shall see.
Engiqueers :laugh: I think it's easy to remove the glovebox .......:laugh:If the glove box was easier to remove than it is, I might consider mounted under it as there is tons or room. .. but the damn German enginqueers found a way to make a simple glove box almost impossible to remove w/o getting frustrated and breaking something :screwy:
Can't wait to see this, might as well just build 2 :laugh:The closest part of the Rad support. I have some better pics I will post up. The Vr support is narrower (allowing more room) between the Condenser and the support itself, but either one would need to be modified. I will mod and reinforce.
Yea, a factory front mount would be ideal and most are pretty inexpensive brand new, but the problems with the ones that I have searched (2.0t, Saabs, Volvos, etc) is that they are either too tall, or the outlets are positioned to face rear and come in either over the top or sides of the rad and point back. This might work with a narrow radiator (i.e. like the Rallye golf FMIC), but as you know, with FL heat in the summer, a black car and A/C to boot, you need as big of a rad as you can get. So, I am not downsizing that.
What I foresee, is a FM similar in size to the ones you mentioned (large surface area), but the Inlet and Outlet will come off in the same plan as the IC but head out toward the right and left tow hooks. Then pipe around and up as usual.
I have the design already finalized in my mind and it will definitely work nicely. I just need to find and buy the right core to get started.
A 2.5" core looks like it would be perfect, but I could squeeze a 3" core in there if need be. Bell doesn't have a 2.5", but they have a 2.25 and a 3". The Difference in flow is very small (only 25cfm).
:thumbup: Just printed the a2 resource guideNo problem. We will get it built
I'll build you one for twenty bukks :laugh:Took a break on the intercooler briefly since it requires spending a lot of money :laugh: I pretty much have it all mapped out though and it will be slick.
That job is the absolute pitts :banghead: Redline huh, niceI really hate rebuilding axles and packing CV joints, so glad they are done and on! Redline CV2
Time foir a better camera
It's not the camera, there was no light and too tight for a flash. I was in Macro mode sans flash and was not able to keep it perfect with the super slow shutter. It my Nikon, peckerhead
Not very exciting of a picture regardless..
