Excellent work taking the rebuild to a higher level of quality. It is coming together nicely.

I am presently designing a turbo engine based on a 3.2. Engine is back from machine shop.


Regards,

I am rebuilding RUF 3.4 BTR out of a Gemballa Version III. RUF supplied this motor with 5 Speed etc in 84 to Gemballa. The engine has about 20K Miles, but was sitting for a while. I just spoke with RUF in Germany and they recommend 993 Turbo studs.

Just in case anyone missed it, I have become a recent convert to using steel studs instead of the OEM snap happy alloy.

Take a look at :

This is why I do not recommend 993 studs - they let heads lift with 1 bar of boost.

Oh man, I have nothing intelligent or knowledgable to say about motors. But I had to comment that those virtual gauges are absolutely OFF THE CHARTS! Man, if you can get an LCD dashboard working that ties in to your mp3's cranking through the stereo, then that would be the craziest, slickest DIY project I've ever seen on this BBS...

LOL, thank you for the compliment Janus but I have a long way to go to completion on many fronts. Once I get my current employment woes straightned out I will be back on track but for now its time to focus on keeping money in the bank instead of blowing it all on my 930, for now at least.

Don,

Thank you, I will follow your advice. ARP has a backlog, but there are some on ebay. I will get a set right away.
I was following your progress and must say absolutely stunning what you did. As I mentioned I am rebuilding my 3.4BTR, but I am going to use the colors you used. Have fun and thanks again,

Regards,
Michael

350hp930,
Best thread on Pelican. Quality, content, tone, persistence all exceed my expectations of a tech web board thread, by a long way. Thanks!!

Thank you for the compliment. I'm just a little sad that my project is once again on hiatus until I settle into my new job.

I need to check the thread views on some of the other boards but this thread is certainly becoming one of the most viewed on the entire PPBBS.

On vacation so I have somwhat delayed responses. Re the MS II it is typical of ALL such systems in its stage of development. Boils down to "You get what you pay for". After you have done countless developments as I have you eventually get to the point you can look at a similar product and know where its at. Same for any professional in most any profession. If you don't beleive that you haven't lived long enough yet. Just look at the pros and what they use. Its not just money, its whats best, afterall thats all they care about. That and winning. If something was JUST AS GOOD at less money they would use it. But they don't, therefore there must be something of value in the big buck systems. And there is, its more refined, capable, and reliable. To get the same overall performance out of a MS II you have to put in the development time (MONEY) to make it so.

Here we go again.

I'll post my question second time:

So, how many aftermarket EFI systems have you installed/mapped/tuned and what kind of problems did you run into?? And yes please, go technical on me

Frankly, I believe you never ever installed any and just vent your personal opinions based on what you read on the internet. You are clogging otherwise very interesting/educative thread with your ramblings.

Always a blast to read this thread.

Those digital displays are similar to the ones in the T-38C that I fly at work. I'll see if I can find a picture.

When writing the code to generate the gauges I did my best to mimick the style of the factory VDO gauges. It should look pretty good in full screen mode with several of them clustered together.

Once I get settled into the new job and start saving up some money again it will be time to put my giant automotive jigsaw puzzle back together.

You could also wire some buttons up on either side of the screen to allow you to select options or to cycle the visable guages or to display peak readings etc.
They could act like keyboard keys.

For even better than that I could upgrade to a touch screen LCD and program in some soft touch functionality. I picked up my 14" screen on sale for right around $200 so I have skipped the additional functionality for the sake of keeping costs down. Touch screen LCD panels arn't cheap but a small trackball is.

Yeah, cost is why i didn't sugest one of those.. i was thinking that you could get some nice buttons and wire them to a stripped out old keyboard and then arrange them as 4 buttons down each side (like on an ATM).
Then display little icons on the screen next to each active button to indicate what it does.
Maybe you could wire one button to the crtl and alt and del keys for easy re-booting for when windows locks up.. just kidding (maybe).
