Yeah it will probably be easier on the drivetrain too.

Just left UMS Tuning

Car did 26.8hp 56.9ft/lbs at 3,100 RPM


Turns out the EMS-4 and the Toyota CAS fucking hate each other.   







Sigh.      I keep trying guys 😔

Yeah.  I'm not the first.   So the goal now is to use one of these, ( http://aemelectronics.com/?q=products/ignition-components/engine-position-module-epm ) and some how, stuff it inside the oem distributor so that the oem distributor drives the AEM EPM.   They make one for small/big blocks, one for Honda B/D/F/H motors, and one that's "universal"


I think I read a while back of converting to Honda dizzy.   So i get to spend a few days digging to find that info.   If I can just buy the Honda suited EPM and bolt it up its no big deal at all.   But my build doesn't go that smooth for tires let alone an aftermarket dizzy.



There is one other thing.   I'm deaf now,   Ears are still ringing.   Car never got above 3,900rpm and its louder than just about any other combustion engine I've witnessed.   I probably needs a muffler.

Ummm, don't you have a silvertop ECU?

Why the AEM box then?

I've never had a ST Ecu


I had a BT/E-Manage blue setup but decided to go AEM instead.


One bite at a time

I've got the AEM puck thanks to Fida just ordering one.   He's quite the guy


Still need a distributor to machine down. 

Also want to pull a 7AFE dizzy and see if that can be made to work, cuz then I can start making these bad boys

Yikes.   Anyway finally shipped out my distributor crap to John Russakoff at JSP Fab.   Hopefully he can come up with some kind of distributor for me.   Till then, we wait.

From c4ag
" According to their tech support, the EMS-4 really wants to see the more modern square wave versus the older sinusoidal (curved) wave that the 4agze CAS puts out. "

You can get the parts for a dual VR convertor for a megasquirt here... $35

https://www.diyautotune.com/support/tech/hardware/zeal-daughterboard/

I'm quite surprised that A> the ECU won't accept VR inputs, and B> A tuner would have a hard time with that.

All the Toyotas I have worked on have used VR sensors.

An ECU manufacturer would be missing out on lots of potential customers by not working with their sensors.

An engine tuner would see this kind of problem every day.

You can either use the VR convertor to convert to a square wave, or replace the pickup coils in the distributor base with Hall sensors from a Ford.

Then you will have square waves for your ECU.

Yeah, apparently this is the sole reason 4AGE guys don't go AEM, and with all the other things involved in swapping 20v's it's no wonder guys are just jumping into BEAMs and F20c and K24 swaps.   

There are a few ways of going about it that can work.   I'm going with the AEM Engine Position Module because A: It's what AEM designed specifically for their computers and will have the best signal for the unit according to AEM. And B: will be hidden at the back of the head and keep the engine bay looking as clean as it does now without adding a Hall effect sensor and trigger wheel to the crank.   I've already gone too far down the rabbit hole as to not "cut corners".  So what's a few more lost paychecks at this point?   John just notified me that he has my stuff and will take a look at it this week now that the Black Friday deals he has going on are here, and almost over.


On that note, I took advantage of said sale and picked up a few things from him yesterday, should arrive this week.

I also figured since I can't drive the car, and it's my birthday today, that I can continue to make it more riced out by ordering up some underglow.  Gonna take a look at strobe kits on Cyber Monday.   Bring your sunglasses.

Hey, Happy Birthday!

FYI I run a 20v and put a homemade trigger wheel inside a cam sprocket and I read it with a hall sensor.

It gives square waves to megasquirt.

There's a plug where my distributor would normally be.

Underglow...

If this doesn't work out like I want I may come to you for advice on a setup similar to yours.   Always down to learn.


As far as the underglow, I didn't do the super cheap thing, but not far off.  I almost went to StreetGlow but decided against it.   I bought a eBay kit that has two 30" tubes and two 48" tubes.  Waterproof.  Comes with a controller that gives you 7 colour options, and will sync to your audio outputs.

I also just bought strobes this morning.   Wear your shades kids.   My car is going to give seizures
