240z with L26 - ITBs, EFI, megasquirt

Recommended Posts

Started test fitting stuff to check clearances. Also got the fuel pump installed in the tank this weekend. Next weekend is probably going to be running fuel lines, while still procrastinating the mess that is wiring. I also need to get another set of triumph velocity stacks, because the two sets I have are currently mismatched...

I got a couple questions for you guys.

1) Since I'm going to be running LS coils, what kind of spark plugs should I run and at what gap?

2) Since I rebuild the head and it has a brand new cam, what break-in procedure do you guys recommend? And what oil should I run during break-in?

Thanks for the info guys. I appreciate it.

This weekend is pretty busy for me so I didn't have much time to work on the car. In the meantime, I finalized the header and intake install and they are on for good. I had to wait for a new gasket that arrived a couple days ago. I also got the thermostat housing on, and the fuel rail and injectors. The throttle bodies are still only on there temporarily.

While I've been doing all this work on the car, I've been in contact with Softopz, and he's been making me a megasquirt harness for my needs. He recently sent me work in progress pics, and has been great to deal with. I'd highly recommend him if you are interested in going the megasquirt route.

 

Here is a link to his thread where he sells harnesses.

I've been traveling for work the past few weeks so I haven't been able to get much done. But this weekend has been pretty productive.

Got the distributor swapped over to the turbo distributor to give me crank angle and cam position. Got the AC compressor mounted as well.IMG_20180407_145123.thumb.jpg.15f67f3cc7115d3c935bd8b043fdea61.jpg
 

I had to CAD up and mill out a little bracket to adapt the throttle linkage to the factory triumph cable pull.

Here is the completed linkage and a crappy vertical video

Progress has been slow due to the following factors :

  • Finals
  • Finding a new apartment
  • Work travel
  • Graduating from college this week
  • Starting a new job on Monday

But I had some time this afternoon so I made a mount for the coil packs and got that done. There has also been progress on wiring. chassis re-wiring is done. Need to finish up gauges and tie it all in with the engine harness. Slow and steady.
