Hi guys,

I was wondering if anybody can point me to some concrete info regarding Mega-compatible ignition controllers.

I've been digging and finding info on a couple of things

Megasquirtnjolt

and Megaspark lite

Both interfacing with Ford's EDIS 8 system (mine's V8) and using crankfired setups (36 tooth).

I haven't however found a place to buy the actual PCB's though.

Just looking for options. It looks like going down this route might actually be cheaper than buying a good aftermarket SBC ignition system like MSD that would fit with my Holley MPFI setup.

The MegaIgnite page has info on every ignition combination that can work with (or even without) the Megasquirt system. The one that stands out is Brent Picasso's Megajolt Lite Jr., which is a standalone controller using a smaller version of the Motorola processor used in Megasquirt. Uses EDIS. Brent appears to be selling parts kits.

Hee hee. . .


The wife's (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/ar15.gif) is ready to go, but I re-allocated my (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/ar15.gif) fund to wiser investments for the time being. But soon. . . I want to do a full blown custom and will need to make some scary cuts for the sights.

Can the Ford timing wheel and sensor be fitted onto a SBC crank w/ Renegade stuff attatched?

Just starting my research. Of course, with the proper amount of (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/smash.gif)

I don't know for certain, but since the timing wheel is meant to be mounted to the back (engine) side of the crank pulley, I can't imagine any engine mount causing any interference. I would be flabbergasted if someone on the MegaSquirt board hasn't fitted an EDIS fired ignition onto an SBC. Perhaps it's better to ask there. It's a pity they use Yahoo groups, as browsing the archives is such a pain with all those ads...
