Finished up the crank and cam sensors for my efi project , up next are the fuel rails some plumbing and new injectors.

Great job there Richter, but I have a question on the dizzy setup, as, if I correctly understand the picture, you will have 2 triggers, instead of the (only) one required for sequential ignition setup. Why and how are you using this mode?

I ask, because I am turning my M117 560SL to Megasquirt 3 with MS3X, full sequential and am still figuring the best option for cam sensor signal. I will be using a new OEM diagnostic crank sensor I bought a time ago. I already have 36-1 wheel on crank, adapted from a 4.0L 6 cil Ford engine (enclosed pic).

Thanks and may God bless us all.
