WTB: Electromotive XDi

Interesting that the company has paused selling. Their list of value added resellers is a possibility, for inventory on their shelves.   https://electromotive.com/dealers/list-of-dealers/

 

 

Yet even Nick Forza calls them unavailable, maybe ask what they are doing moving forward and they would maybe know multi cylinder engines (?) https://www.nicksforzaferrari.net/engine-management--direct-coil-ignition-systems.html

Ace,

You are aware that there are few if any "brains"other than Electromotive that can drive the GM style double post coils.  Igniitors or coil charging circuity needed  in the "Brain".  I think a coil base from a GM car can be gutted of it's build in electronics to work with other ECUs.

A radiator shop is a good place to take a leak.

 

I have no idea what I'm doing but I know I'm really good at it.

@jimk  big caveat: Wiring/electrical is not my strong suit (but putting in a dedicated effort towards learning the basics right now), so i appreciate your input.

 

From my understanding the megasquirt/megajolt run this setup.  I “think” that the base mount on the DFU (they have a machined base for the coil packs and there is a sealed backside with electrical potting (?) integrates the igniters.

 

Still hoping to find an XDi but we’ll see..

When you get there, use good plug wires.  I had one burn thru while in the middle of Kansas on way home from the MidAmerica02fest.  The coil was laying a spark from the coil post to the base, that's over 2" of spark.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
