Yeah I'm going to definitely go Haltech on mine and skip the hassle of MS. I have seen your car at Solid, and it sucks that it can't run because of crappy engine management. Hopefully that will get sorted and you can get that beast on the road!

You might want to also consider an AEM EMS. I put there first universal box, which was just 30-1010 box, on a corolla with a silvertop and automatic transmission. It controlled the engine and trans. The haltech has difficult time picking up the toyota crank/cam sensor. It is quite possibly one of the lowest voltage signals. When I would put haltechs on toyota's, I would have to use the MSD sine wave to digital signal converters. Which may actually be your problem with the mega squirt.

Last i checked the universal EMS was about 2500.00. Havnt checked latly though. Im running the EDIS-4 with the megasquirt. I will check into the AEM.

aem ae86

They were released at that price at first. But no one would buy them for that much, being they were new.
The official release of the universal box actually uses the ford eec-iv plug connector. It had the cheapest cost and most available pins for auxilary inputs and outputs. So that also lowered the price.

The cheapest i could find it was still $2200.00. Haltec is going to run me 1400.00. Thats quite a bit of difference. Unless you know of cheaper?

Did you check out the deals JSP has for C4AG members? The most expensive Haltech kit is still under a grand. Most are in the $750-$950 range. Obviously that is without a tune though.

Added my old start up video. Can somebody fix the link for me? It looks retarded. Car was idling at 400 r.p.m.'s.

Little update. Took a break from the car for a bit, but got back on it today. Ordered some brand new injectors today(440cc). Should be in later in the week. Found out 1 problem with the M.S., i was running low impedence injectors with a high impedence setting in the m.s. So hopefully i can replace the injector drivers on the m.s.(if they're smoked), install the new injectors and get this bitch running again!
