EFI, ITB's TPS's? Definitely sounds like fun. In HP all I have to work with is a hand full of SU needles.

Once again - Mike nailed it. Since idle and part throttle performance aren't really important in your application


You will still need idle and part throttle at Bonneville. Depending on the car, class, and salt conditions, you will really never be at WOT unless you are limiting engine power using traction control. Traction at Bonneville is the limiting factor.

I due suggest you reach out to DIYAutoTune for Mega and Micro squirt. They are normally at Bonneville every year and offer their support.

Unsure if he's still living, but Dean Johnson (GP Spitfire), Minneapolis, set a couple of Bonneville records in a Triumph Spitfire 15-20 years ago before a near fatal barrel roll. Did enough neurological damage he never got his SCCA license back.

Saw his Bonneville stuff for sale on some internet site several years ago.

He might share what he was using and provide some insight into the experience. I know everything you take onto the salt flats will be covered in rust in a few days.

Sounds like a blast.

I just Microsquirted my street 914. Giving thought to something similar for the vintage racer (and/or if SCCA ever lets the 91hp 2L into HProd...hint, hint...)

Warning: if you're the "TL;DR" type don't bother clicking the link.

Great write-up. I love the detail and this confirmed many of the things that I've been thinking are necessary for the installation of a MicroSquirt. I'm thinking of installing one in the '55 Buick my Father-in-Law left me.

Greg, What was your total all in costs for doing the Micro squirt, if you are willing to share. I spent $2500 on putting an electromotive Fi system on my GT3 924 way back in 2000, which was the ECU, coils, fuel rails, injectors, new crank sensor and wheel, MAP and a couple other sensors, plus wiring.

There was probably another couple hundred in Misc stuff.

This was to replace the dual side drafts that everyone put on the D prod cars and then the GT3 versions, since I could not get them to run properly off throttle, and I actually understand EFI.....

Now, admittedly that is a 20 year old number.....

Great write up btw.

Thanks,

Scott

I did MS3 on the vw for HP and it ran about the same to do a nice job. MS3 is a little more expensive and has more bells and whistles but when all was said and done, it was a minimum of $2000. Microsquirt should be a bit cheaper.
