I have an MS1 ECU for sale, fully assembled and tested on a stimulator unit, but never actually installed in a car. This is an earlier one with the V2.2 board, comes with unused wiring harness connector.
Asking $225 + postage.
I have various other EFI related parts available as well, eg: sensors, fuel rails etc.
I also have a Scan Tech oil pump to suit all B230 engines, new in box, $85 + postage.
Why are you selling your ms? Going to ms3?
I've got 3 MS ECU's and I only plan to fit MS to two of my cars, so this one is surplus.
is the pump, factory spec pump? or higher flow?
It's a standard pump for turbo engines (I think the earlier non turbo B230's had a lower pressure relief valve spring in the pump, turbo and late non turbo have the higher pressure spring).
No worries. Thanks.
Price reduction, I'll do $210 on the MS and $75 on the pump.
Is the MS able to be used on whatever you want or is it model specific?
MS can be used on pretty much anything and everything. Check out http://www.megamanual.com/index.html
for what you can do with it
Thanks @k3fsar! I may be interested in the MS @angus242164, just going to do a bit more research to make sure it suits my needs.
No worries, let me know if you decide to go for it.
Ok, so as far as I can gather this is a fuel only ecu? Have you got/had one running on a car yet @angus242164? How much power did you make if you did? Sorry for all the questions but I was just hoping for some first hand experience as I'm looking at it to have a crack at tuning the b200 in my 360 before I finish the b234 to put in its place. I also noticed that they aren't much more expensive than what you are asking, I'm assuming that's because you never installed it on one of your cars.
They can control fuel and spark, or just fuel if you prefer, but most people use them for both. Haven't had it installed on my car personally, so can't comment directly, but they are as finely tuneable as most other aftermarket ECU's, with the same map resolution etc, so if tuned correctly an engine can make as much power as the engine design will allow, with this ECU.
To be honest I based that price on what I saw on Ebay and on the Turbobricks classifieds, so I figured it was close to market value, but I'd consider dropping the price slightly more if it results in a sale. It is assembled and tested, many hours of work have gone into it, so I feel that makes it worth more than an unassembled kit.
There are dozens, if not hundreds of people with Megasquirt on redblock Volvo's on Turbobricks, so there's plenty of advice, sample maps etc. to be found there.
Does it require extra hardware to control spark? I am very keen, you can be pretty confident it will result in a sale.
It has an internal power transistor which is capable of switching a coil directly, lots of people use this feature with success, but I personally never liked the idea of having a highly stressed, heat generating component inside the ECU case, seems like it might be prone to premature failure.
What a lot of people do, and what I had planned to do, is use the ECU to control an external ignition module instead, this is simple to wire in, it just needs to be supplied with power and ground, and connected to the ECU and the coil. The Bosch 124 module from a 740, 940, late 240, various Saab's and other Euro cars etc. is one of the best modules to use, there are diagrams online which show how to wire one into Megasquirt. They are mounted on an alloy block which works as a heat sink.
If the module ever did fail, it's a simple plug in replacement job, about 5 mins work, rather than having to open the ECU case, and solder in a new transistor etc.
MS is sold, oil pump still available.
