ahm if u dismantle a vw ECU its some what "moisture proof" but i have found a "spray " that is for marine applications ...... dude sprayed it on the internals of a TV and literally put it in a fish tank while playing ....gonna put in on my MS
i have started wiring up the mega squirt ..... but i got sidetracked .... a friend of mine came to the garage a week ago with his 92 peugeot for me to service and i realized a big problem with volkswagen from that era ..... the wiring from factory is nasty .... in the peugeot u cud hardly find a wire loom any where ... only wir prominent was the spark plug wires......so i have decided to neat up mi wires pix will follow soon .... i have reach far but i have a tropical storm to deal with .....
I'LL BE BACK .......
well the storm missed us .... and i am wiring the car .....having a bit of trouble with the A/C wiring but coming along nicely ....looking for a relay box to put in the engine bay for the headlites and fans with expansion capabilities .....painless 2 expensive plus i do not need any fuses any ideas anybody ????
pix will soon follow
i have been busy trying to earn some food ... now tha i have a li'l slack period time to work on the car ..... i have been rewiring the car..... cuz vw makes a messy wiring job .....its coming along quite slow but sure ..... i have turned my attention to the injector area these are the stock injector cups ....now i realize ppl go out of their way to find /get g60 injector cups but that is not necessary i have used back the stock cups w/ a li'l modification plus they resist heat much better than the plastic cups
this is b4
this is after
now iwill commece building the fuel rail and i'm gonna be using digifant injectors...
back to the wiring ...need to build a relabox for the engine bay as i'll be putting the battery in the cargo area
i realize the the CIS-E motronic does not come with a '109' relay so i had to install 1 myself to power up the megasquirt so i used a standard relay socket and made the loom .....here are some pix
i installed my own clamping diode ....so i can use any relay for the ECU & i'm also powering the injectors from this relay (i think).... i haven't decided as yet as there are alot of circuits in the fusebox that can do this ....just need to find out how much amps a set (4) of injectors draw
the rewiring is coming along fine .... i made my injector rail yesterday and installed it ........looks real neat and ran the plug wires as well ....
and honorary mention .... my son the upcoming vdubber ...cannot get him to keep out of my cars
heres the MS so far
stay tuned .... doing a li'l rerouting in the fuse box planning on putting the battery in the cargo area and installing a relay block in the engine bay .....STAY TUNED
i have made the fuel injector harness ....the tps harness and the coolant temp harness ....inspesting the pinouts for the tps i found the tps to b DEAD ....as a roadkill....what am i to do.........pic will follow soon ....where am i gonna get a tps ....and wht can substitute ????

it seems like not much is done but a lot of ground has been covered
all need to wire in now is 2 knocksensor.......a 4 wire oxygensensor (for now).....a IAT & the TPS gonna try the mk3 TPS & see if it can work ..not expecting a direct bolt up so i'm prepared
wiring coming along nicely the connector i installed is looking mighty fine ....ran out of heat shrink tubing & the darn soldering iron burn out ...been running it day & nite guess it can't take the work plus its made in china ....gona buy more heat shrink & a nu iron 2morrow
jus need to sort out the TPS connexion & the IAT & the hall p/up
...... trying to rake in funds 4 the tb w/tps .... !!!!our $$$ has no valu .....$90JA of our $ buys $1 US....
i'm almost finished wiring in the megasquirt .....but i have 1 question ... the wire loom i'm using has the grounds from the hall sensor on the sensor grounds ..... and i have connected the IAT , TPS ,O2 ,CTS grounds the this as well and also the mega squirt ......(pin 19) so do i connect the tach -ve to this also can the megasquirt still run properly..... whn u look in2 it all grounds are grounds....but i need a 2nd opinion .....HELP PLZ
more pix to come ....jus that i work in the day to make $$$ & @ nites on my project .....
here is the mk4 TPS...from a vr6 & a 18t IAT
i have started the "machining of the throttle body to take the TPS .....i 4got to snap the before pic but the shaft was 1.25" long & half moon
this is now ...i have to be doing it trial & fit
gonna be removing the intake manifold the bore the hole for the IAT .....
i have finished grinding down the throttle shaft to fit the TPS flush to the mount
& made the adapter to fit the TPS on2 the throttle body
now to test the whole setup
next stop installing the IAT
