You do know that closed-loop corrections will probably not be able to correct the fuelling after the cams have been changed, right? Just because the car is running doesn't mean that a tune is not required to adjust the fuelling and ignition tables, especially after something like a cam change (don't remember what else you've done to the engine). It wouldn't hurt to install a wideband sensor and monitor the AFRs, just to check if any major changes are required in the fuelling tables.

Well, I am not too tech savvy. It is for Phil to sort all that stuff out. I am sure he has done whatever best is possible given the limitations of the ECU. I will get the car today & take it from there on.

IF it is not running how I want it to, there would be corrections made to ensure good running

Thanks for the information





Cheers

Try Megasquirt. I heard someone down south has it working and adapted for many Suzuki engines.

Any pointers ? What price ? Would it be possible to get this done here in Delhi ? How is the after fitment support ? (that was what was lacking with RD)

Thanks for the input

Megasquirt is the Linux SDK of ECUs.
Its a DIY and honestly bamboozles a non-techie like me.

Two conflicting POV What do I do ?? Guess I don't have much choice, just gotta wait for the ECU which Phil (speedsport) is organising for the car !

Not conflicting POVs, I never said Megasquirt was a bolt-on job . Megasquirt is difficult to implement because it's a DIY and for us Indians with Indian cars, you're breaking new ground by trying it on a car which hasn't been done before. And that's why I stated that someone down south had done Megasquirt setups and you can always refer to that tuner if it doesn't work out.

But once you do get it running, it's as good as any expensive standalone, specially with the latest models including ignition control as well, and support for many different tuning software. Plus, being free and popular abroad, there is a good repository of information to learn the specifics and quirks of the ECU and its software. What ECU is Phil getting for the car?

Will have to ask Phil, will talk about it when it actually happens. Because of my past experience I think it best to be quiet till it starts to "rock 'n' roll"

Thinking Turbo charging now. Atleast the money spent will give me the kick in the seat feeling !!

Two ways to look at it !! Use your imagination !

UPDATE

Removed the cam & cam pulley (selling it off in classifieds). As the ECU was not happening inspite of long waits, it was becoming kind of "not so nice" to drive the car "normally", actually one could not.

Hence removed the cam & went back to stock cam & pulley. The car still runs very well, but it is now free of the hiccups.


Cheers

Here you go,
DIYPNP Available Models at DIYAutoTune.com

Cheap but offers all goodies like Pranav mentioned. Infact I have purchased the exact same thing for my ongoing project. Assembling it is not that difficult but yes a bit of electronics know how and bit of soldering practice does come in handy.

Just go through the site and check out the features it provides for the cost. I dont think all the expensive plug n play ECUs offer much more features than what this does.I maybe wrong but since I never wanted to spend a lot on the ECU, I never read up a lot on the plug n play ones.

People here in India are scared to touch anything that hasn't been in use for centuries and centuries. They'd think Megasquirt is the name of some porn movie for people with weird fetishes

Thanks for the advice guys. I think I am fairly happy running the car as it does now. It still has the FFE & the Conical K & N . At idle it purrs like never before.

So for now I am content. Concentrated my attention on the Pajero & the W124.


Cheers
