its not really to impress the rich kids, they just make fun of all my cars including my z1 powerd first gen crx, cause they all have insights and I loved the metros until i found out about the z1, and I figured the p07 from the vx would work becuause I thought they had lean burn, maby if I could socket the ecu and lean the fuel maps a little, run it only on three cylinders using normal 1 and 4 for 1 and 3 and 2 or 3 for 2?
and megasquirt is an option but could it do any form of lean burn
a buddy of mine (who lives in my house) is converting his 82 chevette over to fuel injection. he plans to implement lean burn on it eventually.
the way he told me is that you can set an AF ratio that is dependant on certain conditions just like the VX hondas. I can't say from experience because I don't know but he is one of those guys that does things right the first time and doesn't play around. if he says it can do it, I would believe him.
I would still say to do your research though. I don't know your car and neither does my friend. if it blows up, you have to deal with it.
they also sell a test board that confirms that you have built the ckt board properly. I would say to definitely get that if you plan on doing this.
could I also make an alternate suggestion. you can also get a metro XFI (I hope that is right) they are rated like 58 mpg without any pesky batteries to replace. finding one would be the trick
Be the change you wish to see in the world
With megasquirt you should be able to tune lean-burn into the fuel map with no issue. Actually, it might be better.
Under certain constant load/rpm conditions the Honda engine goes into lean-burn mode. Usually during a steady cruise. Why not write those same load/rpm conditions into the regular running map? Then, it's possible that you could be accelerating in lean-burn.
