    basic efi....

    my triumph is a 6 cylinder 2.5 with 2 hs6 carbs and a dizzy. im fuck sick of tuning and tweaking these antiquated peices of shit. the engine itself is a cracker, torquey and sounds awesome. id like to fit efi. i can make a manifold and have a decent grasp of what im doing.

    the tricky question is, what ecu? megasquirt? vems? a basic haltec? microleb?

    so pf ecu gods, teach me.

    i will be adding a better cam and extractors aswell.

    Out of the box any entry level ECU will be good enough. Megasquirt is a bit involved compared to the well known brands which I would stick to.

    Adaptronic 440d
    Sprint 500

    are you two main contenders I think. The Adaptronic is a million times more feature packed, but a less known brand. Similar price also but if it's supply and install I'm happy to help you out with a price for both.

        So the Megasquirt (or the Microsquirt) is good enough for a daily and really the only problem is the billionth bits of info about tweaking and hacking and making sense of the versions?

          Yeah I'd use a megasquirt in a daily. The hardware is pretty good, but as you said the info is a bit scattered and nonsensical to the average punter but once you work it out its simple as piss. I've just collected enough bits to convert my old man's chev motor to efi and its getting my old ms2 to run the show.

            ah so there are people on here who run ms. awesome. i did look at an ms1 v2.2 as a basic setup. is it worth going for an ms2 or ms3?

              my 2.7L PI motor in the spitfire is running on a wolf ecu, plenty of better options but it runs fine, so it seems like pretty much any of the ecu's you mentioned would do a good job. can take pics if you need any details when fabbing stuff up? as you say torquey and sounds good.

                When you say "basic efi" : Here's a *crazy* idea, but have you considered doing a massive tightarse conversion using the ecu from from something commonly available locally?

                Plenty of options - maybe look at a bosch system from VK commodore for ultimate simplicity. No tuneability but likely to work flawlessly. The engine capacity isn't all that far off.

                Advantage of not having to muck around with wiring. Just fab your injector bosses and rail, fuel system, tap in senders. Plug and play.

                  I'd guess 1/2 the Triumphs in WA have Wolf ECUs. I used to supply the Triumph centre lots of them.

                    i thought of this, and decided on the next best thing megajolt spark control, with a view to running mega squirt next year. it uses ford bits so an old falcon should be usefull.

                            if you look on delco hacking it can be done for substantially less than this. there are options to run the delco off an electronic dizzy, or a simple crank trigger setup with wasted spark. camira looms are much easier to use as the relays and fuses come out with the loom.

                            I didn't realise for about 15 mins as it never broke the speed limit.
