Building a Hyper 8

About this blog

I will try to keep this blog updated as soon as anything has been done in the garage.

Ignition management

Hyper 8 Posted on 2009-09-09 22:01

Needed some kind of ignition management system.

The cheapest, yet most comprehensive system, (in my opinion) is MegaSquirt.

The only “catch” is that you must assemble it yourself. Not that hard actually, but some experience of soldering is recommended.

The nice thing with MegaSquirt is that I can skip the carburettors whenever I want, since MegaSquirt is foremost an injection management system.

Lots of components… Took at least 8 hours to assemble.

Tested with MegaTune. It works. smiley

New headlights

The standard headlights were very large and heavy.

Bought new ones which are much nicer, and lighter (No pun implied.).
