Rover V8 4.6

Post by adamnreeves » Sun Oct 04, 2009 3:53 am

Another success story for Megasquirt.

Running a Cross Bolted 2005 Block 4.6Litre in a Westfield. Megasquirt I PCB version 3.0 running MSextra 29y3. EDIS8 ignition module and coil packs. Trigger wheel and sensor from Trigger Wheels.
I made up the ECU myself. Got a base map from someone running a Rover V8. Set mixture quite rich and she started first time!

I have just come back from Northampton Motor Sport where Troy done a complete mapping. Managed to get 280BHP and 300 lb-ft. Maximum power was interrupted by the rev limiter set at 5800.

You want more details of my build, etc then visit http://www.westfieldbuild.com/

Bit of an update. I've updated my MS1 to MS2 running firmware 3.03v. Now using the idle control value, so much better. Car has been re-map. More ignition advance and rev limit raised to 6000. Now making 292BHP at the flywheel.

Dyno show results for different air filter configurations:
