I'm starting my first MS project on an M30 in an E12. I want to use this to get my feet wet and go through some inital learnings. The second project is a bit more ambitious and I think you may have some insight. I'd like to run a M62 V8 with dual VANOS on two seperate cylinder banks. Does this sound feasible to you?

Hey all,

I'm looking for an E36 M3 and considering a Megasquirt system.

It sounds like you have things pretty well sorted out. I wonder if I can use what you have as the basis for an M3 engine (3.2L)

Do you know of anyone who has done an E36 M3?

Hi there Chris,

I'd appreciate that help if it's still available thanks :)

I'm installing MS2 V3 on an e36 M50TU engine.

How did you do the VANOS? The schematics aren't very clear to me....what about that out signal?

Thanks, regards from Portugal

M52 POWER! wrote:I am proud to annouce today I have accomplished everything I have wanted with my megasquirt 2 standalone engine management system on a OBD2 1996 BMW 328is.
  • I have successfully tuned ignition advance/retard maps, fuel injector VE tables.
  • Cold start/warmup enrichment is spot on.
  • I've restored (actually made better) ease of drivability of the car compared to stock SIEMENS.
  • I've made considerable gains in HP/TQ across the entire rev range.
  • Throttle response is hugely improved, I can't imagine with a LTW flywheel!
  • Vanos system is 100% fully functional and customizable!
If anybody is looking for info, base maps etc please let me know. I'd like to help out as much as possible, especially in such a "unexplored" scene on these OBD2 motors.

This is all with running MS2/Extra beta 14 software on the MS2 ecu.
Special thanks to Jon (urinemachine)

Are you still around/willing to drop some knowledge regarding ms2 on the m52b28?

I'm having trouble starting my MS2 M52B28 at coolant temps below ~12oC...I'd love to know what cold settings you're running, and if you've been getting good cold start results at low temps?
