Guys, knock it off and keep it civil. A new guy came and shared his experiences with us. He may have been a bit crass at times, but jeez guys, don't get all butthurt.
There are going to be quite a few more people doing turbo builds with these motors, now that I brought a bunch of cast T3 manifolds over from the Netherlands.
87turbolude, you've learned a fair bit about putting stuff together cheaply. Do you hang out over on HMT or GRM?
Megasquirt is trivial to add to an engine. Unless you need the extra features of MS3, just find an MS2 setup and run the MS2 Extra code.
Lol this is funny. Not trying to bicker or anything but my first turbo a 20th was done on a fresh outta high school budget so I know my fare share if penny pinching. So come correct when you try to info. We are glad u felt the need to update our outdated stickies but when you are new to us and you get defensive when we ask for proof you come off like an asshole. We are all about the sharing of experiences and knowledge. Time slip is coll but snap us some pictures of your set up. We are curious.
Also how much is a megasquirt set up? I'm curious to see how much It even cost, I couldn't find a good price when I looked.
For the MS setup, it really depends on what you need to do. An unassembled MS3 kit with assembled MS3 processor board goes for just under $400.
MegaSquirt-III Engine Management System w/PCB3 - UnAssembled Kit with black case DIYAutoTune.com
MS2 kits are about $100 cheaper.
MegaSquirt-II Programmable EFI System PCB3.0 - Kit w/ BLACK CASE DIYAutoTune.com
Other costs to take into consideration are fueling requirements, and changes to the ignition system, both of which can add a significant amount to the end build cost.
I have been in contact with DIYAutoTune about their PnP products, but there is a 10 order minimum, and we have 2 slightly different EFI systems on these Accords. It would cost about $4,000 to have the first 10 ECUs built.
If you take the path I'm taking with MS and waiting out for deals on used parts, you can get the whole shebang for under $200. You usually have to make board or component repairs down at that price point, though.
87turbolude , Tdurr lets call the mud spitting what it is..."we" or anybody by forum human nature , like to see feel touch the good stuff like track times....that troll proofs the entire conversation right? Troll defense is the likely source of butthurting, i think were good here now anyways,
I remember, and its still here, all the insanity of your first set ups Tdurr, you put it all out there for us to rip on lol, it was bad ass all the samethough wern't it
87turbolude Im glad that name wasnt taken its a hellova lot easier to type than ieatvw****** lol

Psst a html link to post photos. Nice number's. Messy Is right about the phantom grip LSD I would recommend using the OBX LSD and replacing the bolts that they come with arp blots my buddy's here are using that set up to run 9's in their civics. Plus the obx have a lifetime warranty.
A year later and no pics??? Why is this site dead???
