Megasquirt Experts want to help?

My cousin has a stalled project that Ive been trying to help him finish, but being 300 miles away has made it hard. We thought we found a place that was going to get us over the hump, but after paying them thousands all we have is a shiny new turbo, beautifully fabricated plumbing, but still a dead roller.

 

The shop got stuck with the megasquirt. We purchased an older version that was already running a turbo M10, is loaded with a tune and has all of the correct parts, but the shop doesnt seem to know what to do next and is ready to have the car leave. Im afraid to have it go to another shop, more thousands get spent and still no runner.

 

Is there any experts that have space and want a "winter project" and will be paid to do so. The $120/ hour we paid added up quick. They charged 4 hours to install the cooling system...

 

The car is in Fremont right now and is in talks with another shop, but I figured I could reach out the to you. 

 

Thanks

ouch. I feel the pain brother.... although a lot of people have used the megasquirt with success, it is not often the preferred ECU/ management system of tuning shops. they want you to get an AEM or some other widely used product because they have the support of the supplier to help them with troubleshooting... it's like bringing a hacked/modded PC into the mac store in the mall....if it ain't OSX, they don't want to touch it.

...unfortunately saving money on the cheaper engine management ends up costing more in setup/troubleshooting/tuning. megasquirt is a great system if you are a tech dude with the time to learn it and do the work yourself. (or somehow find that gifted individual who can do the work for you for under 120$/hr... if you find that person, let me know!) best of luck and I wish I had more useful info for you!
