Vehicle: 1990 M70 V12 on a stand
Description: Treated the M70 as 2 M20s.. using 2 MS and EDIS6 units (2 sensors on 1 ford wheel). Ran as a proof of concept only, each M30 TPS controls each bank seperately (haven't try to vary each side).
The trick is to install and test 1 bank first. The engine can start and work with only 1 bank (it is a feature). Once you complete one bank then start on the other. I hope in the future with CAN we can shut down one bank and have a type of multipe displacement system!
I want to TT an M73 but have discovered this is near impossible and probably never done before. I have an M70 sitting in my garage and this this is a better solution. I was advised to use a stand-alone ECU. What have you done so far?
Is the dual MS II approach what would be done these days, or has there been such improvement in the system that there's now a better way? Note that I do like the idea of retaining the capability to run on 6 cylinders in case of a component failure in one system.
Treating this as a pair of M20B25's wouldn't be too bad an idea since there's a starter map available at DIYPNP but just wanted to check first.
