  1. Thanks for taking the time to check out my post. For starters I did the fusible link upgrade and alternator upgrade from http://www.atlanticz.ca/zclub/techtips/ about a year ago. At the time the car ran pretty bad because the turbo install added a bunch of extra electronics and the alternator I was using wasnt supplying enough juice to run everything that I had installed and it was wreaking havoc. I just recently purchased a 140amp alternator from Zspecialties and its blowing my 80amp fuse. The fuse does not instantaneous blow when I turn the car on. It only happens when I am driv
  2. I think I figured out the problem. As suggestedby NewZed, I believe my fuel pressure regulator was sticking open. I bought a different brand fpr, tested it out and havnt noticed any similar symptoms. Also Ive noticed that my car now keeps fuel pressure after I turn off the car, all the other fuel pressure regulators that Ive used dropped to 0 when I turned the car off. I rewired my whole car to incorporate the megasquirt ecu, the pump is placed in the same spot as the stock one (maybe even a little lower), no exhaust near the lines. So Im going to keep monitoring the situation to make su
  3. Hey how's it going? Ive been dealing with my 77 280z turbo project these past few years and Im having a serious problem with either pump cavitation or vapor lock. I dont care what you call it, it's getting really annoying. The car will start up and drive just fine to my destination; however, if it sits more than 10 min I have to sit for several hours just to get the afr back to a safe driving range range. I only work 5 miles away and I usually have to wait my entire 8 hour shift for it to not be running super lean. Several times I have tried to leave and go on lunch but my AFR is at 17+
  4. 1977 Datsun 280z 4 speed 2.8L (Turbo-ed) MS2 V3.57 Upgraded alternator to a mid 80s Nissan Altima (90amp). MSD 6AL MSD Blaster 2 Coil Generic Megasquirt Wiring Harness 280zx Turbo Distributor Electric Fans 55lb Sieman Deka Injectors Innovate Wideband O2 3" Intercooler Pipes I have looked through one guys tune. Thats how I got it to finally start running. I made a hybrid between that one and the tune that I had from my MS1.
  5. Hey everyone, i got my car kinda running today yay! It runs like crap, but it's running. I dont know what to look for to make it run better, im not a tuner by any means. It wont Idle but if I keep giving it gas then it will stay alive. It sounds like its running well at the higher RPMs versus the lower and mid ranges. The car is a 77 280z, MS2 V3.57. Im hoping to hear some suggestions to make the tune better. Thank you for the help. Feel free to ask any questions. Tune.rar
  6. I can take the key out whenever in my 77 280z. I think it is quite handy. In case i left something inside the house, I can keep the car running.
  7. When I downloaded tunerstudio the start and warm up enrichment settings were preset to a random car. So it is a possibility that it is the settings could be wrong. Im not a tuner by any means and I have no idea what they are supposed to be set at. Is there anything else that I can check while I wait for a buddy of mine to come over and check out the enrichment settings? Ive tried uploading my tune on here but for some reason it's not letting me, says i dont have permission to upload the file or something
  8. Alright so I got the car to turn over thanks to newzed's link. The problem was the way my car's wiring was previously set up with the MS1. On that set up I didnt use the Spark A wire on the Megasquirt generic harness but after looking at the link it shows that the MS2 uses that wire. I connected the Spark A wire to the white wire on the MSD like the link stated and Bam it attempted to start. The problem now is that I have to keep pumping the gas to keep the car alive. It wont idle, it will just start and die without me vigorously pumping the gas. Any suggestions on that one?
  9. And are you assuming that I have oscilloscope? how am I supposed to tell if I am getting a square wave without an oscilloscope? I dont have a job and Im not going to just go out and buy one.
  10. Checked the cap and rotor. They seemed alright. I cleaned em up and tested again but still nothing
  11. How's it goin? Im working on my turbo-ed 77 280z and Im not sure where my spark is going :/ Im running megasquirt 2 v3.57, MSD 6AL, MSD Blaster 2 coil and a 83zx dizzy. I have good spark from the coil to the dizzy plug wire but it seems to go somewhere after that and its not to the plugs. I did the MSD test that checks the spark going to the dizzy from the coil spark plug wire. The one where you put the coil plug wire next to a ground and touch the white MSD wire to a ground to see if it makes a spark. Ive had this problem before but I cant remember how I fixed it. I cant remembe
  12. Okie dokie, I got the RPM signal. I believe the battery was just too low for the computer to sense it :/ So now I just gotta work on my timing since I dont have spark :/
  13. Im not very electronically savvy when it comes to tuning, wiring or computer boards but I do know how to take a screenshot haha.
  14. I just bought a MS2 V3.57 (with the Single Ignition Output through BIP373 coil driver) for my 77 280z and I cant get the RPM to sync. I used to have a MS1 V2.2 but I didn't add drop resistors to my injectors so the box got screwed. Everything used to run fine with the MS1 but now with this new box I cant get the RPMs to sync. A little about the car ignition: 83 Turbo Dizzy (Has a 1k resistor between the white trigger wire and the +12v) (stock trigger disc) MS generic wiring harness MSD 6AL MSD Blaster 2 coil I used a volt meter at the dizzy's signal wire and it's getting
