It's got launch control, boost by gear, anti-lag, all that crap, and my car will only be down for 2 days as opposed to however long it takes me to re-wire the engine bay for megasquirt. I'm not saying megasquirt is some cheezy crap, I'm saying it's not compatible with my engine. Plus, my car won't need a stand alone $300 wideband with the K-pro like I would with megasquirt.

I have looked into this and know what I'm doing, Tex.

I'm not trying to convince you of anything, you arrogant ass, it was merely a suggestion. Sorry if your megamind is far too lofty to understand that, and be glad someone tried. Go fuck yourself, ricerboy.

Same concept of a 4 barrel carb. You have primaries and secondaries....when cruising with a 4 barrel, you are only running on 2 of the 4 barrels until you get on it, then the secondaries open up feeding more fuel and air to the engine. Its kind of a neat feeling actually...kind of feels like turbo lag. You really feel it when the secondaries open...our in my case the other 4 barrels of my front and back Carb s.

The other reason is that's syncing 3 carbs to operate as one is a complete pain in the ass and i don't want to fuck with that.

Ok i see. My only multi carb thing was my bike, a v4 honda with 4x keihins that all open the same time (each single bbl) Otherwise it was a single 2bbls or 4bbl, so no fuss.

Well, I took the roadster and the new engine out on a shake-down run to a nostalgic drag and car show on Saturday. Had hesitation issues, and while noticibly more powerful than the 305, I had been a bit disappointed in the power output. Was better, but not by enough to justify the amount of money I spent on the new engine - expected much much more.

Put about 120 miles on it saturday. Then discussed it with my father-in-law Saturday night. He suggested I bring it by the shop. Turns out - I had the valves tightened down WAY too much. Got them set properly and sonovabitch - its a whole new animal. I took it around the block for the first time with a shit eating grin on my face stating that "ok, I like my new engine now". I had been thinking about swapping my .308 rear end for something a bit more aggressive and less friendly on gas....don't think I even need to do that now. Can burn the tread off my tires on just 2 barrels without having to even touch the secondaries.

Wished I had taken pictures/video at the car show and drag races. Didn't even bring my camera. Did take a quick vid on the way home passing a couple of friends I cruised in with, but thats it.

+ YouTube Video

Don't they have a version of the megasquirt that control VVT systems now?

The last time I looked at it was like a couple of years ago, and they were talking about the next version supporting that.
