  1. I agree completely. There are folks here that can tune the Haltech for sure, Holley less so, and the MS3, I am not sure.
  2. I actually have extensive knowledge when it comes to assembling PC boards (about 30 years worth) so the soldering would be a kind of zen thing for me, but I was thinking about the xTra Gold Box form EFI source. I like the connectors and the robust nature of the board along with plenty of IO's just incase I want to do Anti lag (for a joke) or some sort of traction control (just to see if it can be done on this car). Pre-pinned harness is a good idea as well https://www.efisource.com/wp/shop/xtra-gold-box-new/#ecu. As far as connectors go I am going to use these. As far as I can tell these are the best I can get from a technology standpoint. https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07L8CCJZP/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  3. Dude it is going to be ok. I am just sorting through the parts that I got from my turbo purchase. Flagworld has asked for some of the EFI parts that I don't use I, but likely I will be putting up for sale some EFI stuff including a crank trigger wheel and sensor holder from 02 again. Would that help your situation. ? I don't know about you, but I have at least 2 dizzy's to sell, likely a MSD, rad, gauges, sensors, 2 fuel pumps (high and low pressure) 2 pressure regulators, oil pump, and about a billion other bits to sell. P.S What made you go with the 1500?
  4. Sorry and yes indeed the Haltech has one.
  5. I really like the MS3 Gold because it uses a barometric pressure chip built right onboard. I live in Vancouver BC so driving up and around mountains is really important. I am not sure either the Holley or the Haltech have one.
  6. Really cool. Will you go with the MS3 gold box, or the regular one from diyautotune? 225 mm clutch? or 215mm?
  7. This is my understanding as well in terms of the sensors. I am more concerned with what happens after the sensors that is the easy part to test and fix. What I am worried about, and not interested in , having to chase down EMI issues, or other gremlins that are inherent in the ECU config. The random stumble because the injector drivers are weak, or misfire because the impedance is flapping too much for the ECU to handle will cause me to reach for my for sale sign quickly. Holley is a great system and great manufacturer with simply outstanding support. The problem is that it isn't built for a 2.0L motor, it doesn't flow enough to atomize the fuel at idle with a TBI type system. Add a liter and I am sure it would work just fine. I am just interested in what these systems are like to live with. Do you have to tweak them constantly? or can you set it up and let it eat. With the Holley
  8. At a high level I am kinda looking for reliability knowing that they have different price points. I have learned that sometimes one is not directly correlated with the other. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I have an “80” amp alternator that really puts out about 65 at full chat. I always want to over build the battery system. The stereo isn’t anything crazy. Just like to have a good amount of voltage on hand. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. To clarify the EDIS 4 cyl uses a 90 degree crank reference angle. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Mr gasket 6018 is the model number. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Super cheap. It is a Mr gasket SBC kit. Sorry I gave the other one away. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Love it !!! Gotta tell my buddies about this. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. With the Holley you have a lot more built in functionality and if you order the kit, you get most of the sensors you need. Plus injector drivers and coil drivers are built into the unit The Haltech to be comparable you need to add those to the initial price. Plus you don’t get injector plugs like you do with the Holley and some other wiring and adapters. In addition if you want auto tune you need to buy an upgrade license to enable it in the software for the MS3. I think it is time for a spreadsheet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
