Ever thought that a Megasquirt on a 13B would be a great idea?

Ever got depressed when you went to the Megasquirt site and saw that WE DO NOT CONTROL ROTARY ENGINES (This has changed with the latest iteration but humor me here. I am trying to build suspense.)

Are you a true GRMer and refuse to pay retail for anything which leaves you to used ECUs and/or older DIY Megasquirt off of Fleabay or the List of Craigs?

Well fret no more!

Here is how to mod a MS1 or MS2 to control a 13B.

A most awesome dude by the name of Aaron Cake, has a step by step, spoon fed, tutorial on how to mod, wire up, and map a Megasquirt to a 13B.

Good post!

I've been running a ms1 on a v2.2 board for almost 10 years on my rx7.. I used a guy named *error 's daughter board to control the spark. It's worked well.

All of Aaron cakes' rotary stuff is worth reading!
