    MS1 OR MS2 upgrade which way to go HELP

    thanks bloz up for response..anyone else?
  4. I have a couple of questions im needing to know .First is i have purchased MS1with extra 029y4 firmware v2.2board v30 main processor chip back in 2010 with stim board for my build i have searched pretty extensivly in forums heres my build. p54 f90 stock pallnet fuel rail supra 440cc injectors gm hei triggered from cas dizzy 240sx throttle body with spacer walbro pump 3inch stainless exhaust 21/2 downpipe Is the MS1 extra 029y4 the same as MSNS,it seems like most of the members maps are in MSNS or MS2 it looks like this could be easier for someone new to all this like me to get a basic grasp of tweeking if i had a shared map to use, i was considering buying the ms2 daughter board for $129 from diy but did not know if it would be anymore simpler to program as well as being more flexable for future use.also tunnerstudio or megatune?ive been playing around a tad on tunnerstudio trying to get familar with software.any advice is greatly appreciated thanks.......

    main wire ampacity

    my understanding is that the fuse should be sized for the respective wire size to prevent melting of wires insulathion i will agree a direct short on a main conductor would blow in an instant of time before any real damage could occur to the rest of the wire.I see both sides to this discussion thanks for the input guys....

    main wire ampacity

    Just curious has anyone experienced wire OVERHEATING of STOCK white/red or white wires on their 240zs with the 60AMP or larger alternator upgrades. im a little aprehensive of the upgrade do to the ampacity ability of alternator vs stock wire size which appears to be good for 40a max.I am doing l28et conversion with megasquirt and electric fuel pump as well as headlamp relay upgrade.I will not be hooking up rear window defrost which should lower amps a little.....ive read sevral great articals on internal regulator alternator upgrades but none seem to address current main wire size in the car.I really dont want to run new white and white red stripe wires under the dash to the amp meter unless absolutley necessary.ALSO what is the average amp draw with headlamps on low and blower motor on high....thanks
