This car has slowly been built up as a bit of a toy for competition use. Both of us working on it love old cars, but being an electronic engineer and programmer by trades, we tend to add a few extras here and there.
- Homemade Arduino based rally computer (Rallyduino)
Conversion to fully sequential injection and ignition.
We are slowly fitting out the car with a latest gen sequential fuel and ignition system. This will be based around the open source Megasquirt 3 processor and will allow individual cylinder trim as well as coil on plugs for by-cylinder timing. It will also utilise a full time wideband O2 for accurate closed loop operation
As of 17/8, this conversion is about half way through with cam and crank sensors fitted, a wideband sensor/controller installed and the injection manifold fabricated. Still to do is the addition of a high pressure fuel line, pump setup and, of course, ECU programming.
Plans for the future include:
- Drive by wire throttle
- Traction control (VSS + Ignition based)
- Launch control
- ECU controlled supercharger
