      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 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 diode
