    This week on Money Pit, we’re doing brain surgery! That’s right, we’re replacing the factory ECU with a Megasquirt Standalone ECU so we can take complete control over the engine and the way it runs. Then we’ll take it to our friends at EF1 Tuning to develop a tune - can we make any more power with our new brain?

Just noticed I was saying things like 'big voltage' and 'little voltage' when talking about the relay 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️that's not a thing! Voltage is constant! I should've said current. Anyway just wanted to call myself out on that, hope everyone enjoys the video and has a totally tubular Wednesday! - Zach

@Alex Jou ....at $1200 for a none turbocharged engine , not worth it . With the stock ECU you can tune to 150whp .

If you're talking about a relay it should be zero current not low current.

@Mizera Adventures for the most part, in automotive electrical systems the voltage is between 12-15v. . Same for automotive relays. The coil only take a small amout of amperage to energize but needs to see around 12v. Some sensors use 0-5v or 0-7v but most that's for scaling and not power.

It's all good, seems like you were just trying to make things simple. Just please stop soldering wires to wires. Soldering should only be use on wires to hard contact points.

Love the content and the commercial for small cars was fun and you guys made it the best it could have been but I was literally checking to see if there was a skip button because at one point I thought it was a YouTube ad. YouTube already has enough ads without you guys putting a 60 second commercial in the beginning of the video

Discuss: Having a vacuum line going to the ecu for that distance delays read out accuracy. I believe the map sensor should be on the manifold and wired to the ecu rather than the setup in the video.

6:27 that's a laughable statement. Enjoy your 150hp miata with a turbo and I'll enjoy the exhaust tones of a twin turbo 5.3 ls making 500hp. There is absolutely no replacement for displacement.

Sorry but your base fueling calculations need to be accurate or your ve table is going to be shit and harder to tune. Using afr targeting without manually tuning the be table first is also going to end up with a shit ve table. Do not run cl afr targeting before having your ve table close. Do not assume your base file fuel calculations are correct. Do not assume the auto tune and cell smoothing is accurate. You need to datalog, check and correct, and repeat to make a spot on ve table. THEN start using close loop corrections.
