Megajolt in a 91 Firebird Formula

I cant believe I never posted up after I finished my install, so here it is: First I converted a distributor to use as a trigger, figuring I would eventually mount a proper trigger on the crank which I never got around to. http://www.mynetimages.com/bd3c7f8f79_th.jpg Otherwise install and tuning wen...

I absolutely encourage the use of it :lol:

It officially runs!! Sounds good and strong. Time to get it off to the welders to finish up the exhaust for the turbo then it's time to tune.

Yet another step closer. Reversed all the wires and finally got spark!! Couldn't get it to fire though, killed the battery in the process of testing the last few days so she's on the charger and I'll give it a go tomorrow. At least I've got all the ingredients for a running engine, probably just nee...

I think I've figured out the problem. The wiring on the edis connector is bass ackwards. Another victim of the bad edis diagram. At least for the V8 I'll confirm the stupid f'n thing is reversed. The centered notch is pin 1. Never would have caught it if I hadn't gotten the factory connector with th...

Well one step closer, got the injectors firing. Didn't have 12v going to the ignition module to provide reference pulse to the ECU. Lol stood out in a downpour this morning after I had the brainstorm that I forgot that wire to test it. Still just waiting on the 2nd EDIS module now.

Never had it working before. Double checked all the connections, continuity tests all good. Tried the simulated vr input and still got no spark and no rpm reading on the MJLJ. I've tried everything I can think of short of replacing the EDIS. I've got another EDIS coming soon, hopefully that will yie...

Well I went to every parts store in the area and no one can test an EDIS8. After a bit of searching I stumbled across a page with instructions to simulate a vr signal with a headphone jack and wave file so I guess thats the way I'm going. If I cant get any spark or at least communication via PIP/SAW...

Just poured through the schematics and realized I dont have pin 7 on the edis hooked up to anything, just the main ground on 10. Is this necessary? I have the shields grounded on the other end. Is pin 7 connected internally to pin 10 or is this maybe my missing link?

EPIC FAIL

Well first attempt at startup is a wash. Got everything together for a first fire and started with a dead battery. Went to the store just before close to get a new battery, got home cranked it over and just spins. No spark, and no fuel, two separate systems both dead. Got the system apart now going ...

Real close to firing this thing up now, minus turbo till I can get it to my welder to finish up. I'm finding the best place to mount the pair of coils is directly above the distributor. Would there be any issues with noise from the coils affecting the vr sensor in the distributor? We're only talking...

Looks like it about done. Sensor is mounted and tested, at least a basic test. Hooked it up to the scope last night and spun it up by hand. Signal looked pretty good, could see the missing tooth passing in the wave clearly. Need to rig up something to spin it up steady to do a proper test, old but g...

Only thing I'm worried about is the distributor and cam gear wear, that is something I'll be keeping an eye on, I'll also be modding the distributor to see the gears get a little extra oil which a common small block chevy trick. Otherwise I dont see it adding much in way of wear and tear on anything...

Definitely heavier than the stock rotor would be, but on the cam it's spinning half crank speed and the inertia wouldn't be very much compared to a heavier flywheel since it's such a small diameter. All in all I dont see it as a much of a problem, of course I haven't run it yet either. Finished most...
