  • megasquirt settings for new install

    Guru's, two unrelated questions for you:

    1. In megasquirt set up inputs for HP: is that HP at the crank or the wheels?

    2. I am running an odd-fire v6. Is there any advantage to running 2 on one side and 1 on the other for each bank? I realize that running separate banks makes troubleshooting easier but since I am running an odd-fire, perhaps there might be some advantage to mixing it up. Since I am injecting above a blower, my thought is that its probably going to normalize pulses out anyway. Just thought I would ask.

    thanks

    Matt or DieselGeek probably know for sure, but I always figured the HP was based on engine, since the application could be a lawnmower or all out race car, and comparing whp through a torque converter and a 4-speed is a bit different.

    I wouldn't worry about the pulses as you mentioned, wire it up in an easy way to troubleshoot. On my V8 I wired mine up like the two banks on a Caddy 4-6-8 engine, which worked well when a ground or power wire came loose on one bank, the engine still ran reasonably well as two cylinders on each side were still getting fuel (like 4-cylinder mode of the Caddy engine). On your application it probably doesn't matter.
    Escaped on a technicality.

      That's at the crank, as Randal noted.

      2. I am running an odd-fire v6. Is there any advantage to running 2 on one side and 1 on the other for each bank?

      Above the blower? It's not going to make any difference up there.

        agreed. You guys are confirming my thoughts, just thinking out loud.
