MS230-K with v3.0 PCB
A little about my project. I have a 91 vw gti that started its life as a 16v. It was fully built by the previous owner. (high comp, cams lignted everyhting heder the hole 9 yards.) I took all that out and traded it to my buddie for his girls totaled 02 vw gti with a 1.8t (awp).
I took the 1.8t out and put it into my mk2 and took all the factory emissions and vacume crap off. I have a front mout intercooler with all the plumbing. (obviously lol) My turbo is still factory for know K03s. I am using the mk2 interior wiring for the car. Megasquirt is going to control the engine.
If anyone has any pointers or experiance with the similar setup i am all ears. I have been reading the mega manual and diyautotune FAQ, and searching this site. My buddie bought megasquirt and we will actully be mesing around with his tomarrow. Hopefully i will learn something because rite know i fell like i know absolutly nothing i am a hands on person reading dosent do it for me.
The main thing i dont understand is how im running spark i told the people at diyautotune i want to run the factory press in coil packs.
Thanks for any help its greatly appreciated. Good luck with all of your project
i totally feel you on this... trigger angles all that stuff goes right over my head. I like the autotune feature to make the map but the spark table stuff is jamming me up - sucks when you hear ping. I finally got 2.5 piping and a rather large intercooler. Don't hear the ping so much only at like higher psi's. I'm getting all the kinks out of my swap... Did you have any issues putting the mk2 bracket onto the awp? My motor moves around terrible, believe my rear hydro mount is shot, will be upgrading to a mk2 solid, your gti could either have hydro or solid, wanted to see what you did for mounts since the g60 and mk2 are basically the same k-frame iirc.hax wrote:why go with ms2 and not ms1? im using ms1 v3 with a wasted spark set up. i have the same thing going on, 87 gti with an awp from an 03 jetta. still working out the tuning which is a pain because its my first time.
let me know if you have a good base file i'm looking for a decent file to mess around with for a 1.8t k03s awp.
