Re: Low impedance injector driver

Actually, scratch that-14ohms. Seems like I was given duff information. Don't believe everything you read on the Internet, kids! :lol:

Low impedance injectors

I've just discovered that my engine has low impedance, side feed 350cc injectors. I've also noticed that the Wiki states that RusEFi cannot handle them. Is this information still correct, is there a workaround or am I stuck with spending a fortune on a new set of injectors if I want to use this ecu?...

Re: Dual wideband?

Well, mine won't need cats anyway, so it's a moot point. I'm using a single O2 sensor initially due to cost, but wanted to use two for safety's sake eventually.

Dual wideband?

Now I've got my engine in I'm starting to think about the exhaust, which brings me to the O2 sensor(s). Being a V8 it would be ideal to have an O2 sensor in each bank. On the advice on the engine's designer, it is having an exhaust system per bank to increase the exhaust volume as much as possible, ...

Re: Coil on plug question

I need to locate the ecu and work out which wire does what, r find the legend for wiring colours. Trouble is the manual is around 2000 pages and, being a PDF, is a pain in the arse to navigate. I'll get there in the end, though, so it shouldn't be a problem.

Re: Coil on plug question

Managed to find and download the factory workshop manual and thankfully the Jag has two separate ignition modules- one for each bank or cylinders. They're not too seriously hidden, either, which is a bonus.

Well, that's one bullet dodged......

Re: Coil on plug question

If it doesn't have a separate igniter box, you could always try the J701. Toyota igniter 89621-33020 like on https://rusefi.com//wiki/index.php?title=Manual:Hardware_Ignition#External_Igniter It's the same thing but 6 channels which would keep things more compact in case of your 8 cylinders. That i...

Re: Coil on plug question

I suggested going wasted spark if it made things easier, not that Jaguar did it as stock. It's not unheard of in production vehicles, though. Renault, which you are lucky enough not get over there (but are a large proportion of the market here & are utter shite), use wasted spark on their COP setups...

Re: Coil on plug question

I've no documentation in the Jag at all. Since running it as a wasted spark setup isn't out of the question would it be possible to control an EDIS 8 module with rusefi, like the Metasquirt boys do?

Re: Coil on plug question

Sorry for the delay in replying- both of my multimeters were spazzing out, and ranging all over the place. Had to go out to my van and use the one in there. Primary resistance is 0.9-1.0 ohms. Rather worryingly, I couldn't get a reading for secondary resistance! http://i296.photobucket.com/albums/mm...

Coil on plug question

I've just noticed that the coils on my engine are only two wire i.e. they don't have built in ignitors. Can I still use Rusefi or do I have to go over to Megasquirt? Because I'd rather not!

Can anyone tell me? :(

Probably a stupid question, but wouldn't the ecu need a plastic lid if it's going to have Bluetooth communication?
