Hbar & oughtsix:
Thanks so much for the info about the injector diameter. I had no idea that pulsed injectors were available that were the same size as the bosch CIS injectors. I guess I have to do a little research on sizing the pounds/hour and find some likely part numbers.
Hbar.... How did you seal up the axiliary holes in the intake ports for the extra air rails? Making blank-off plates for the outside sounds easy, but what did you do inside the runner?
I don't think I'll be able to easily fabricate a fuel rail because there are several obstructing brackets and pipes that wander through the area. But plumbing a hose to each injector would work fine. I'll take a look at the info on the Megasquirt site.
A major breakthrough for me today was locating another 1986 Lotus Esprit Turbo owner that has already converted to Megasquirt. He says that his car never ever ran as well as it does now after converting to Megasquirt. Hopefully I can get a set of VE tables and timing maps from him since his motor is identical to mine. I hope I like how he did his installation.
I did leave off a few details about my engine, including the fact that it already has a 3 wire (heated) O2 sensor, with the associated black box, additional thermal time switches, throttle position sensor, warm-up regulator with altitude correction gismo, etc, etc, etc. Someone told me that's what the "K" in K-Jetronic stands for.... Lambda closed-loop control added to the basic Jetronic system.
I get dizzy just thinking about it, never mind trying to debug it.
