This is the Rimmer setup with an Eaton 62 supercharger (rebuilt 2 years ago), adapters, custom plenum,
new (never installed) MS2 Extra EFI ecu Plug N Play from V8 Developments in the UK. http://www.v8developments.co.uk/prod_inject.html
It is wired for distributorless ignition if you want to add it later and 2 wideband O2 sensors.
Also included are:
2 AEM Air/Fuel Ratio gauges, http://www.aemelectronics.com/wideband-air-fuel-gauge-8-5-to-18-1afr-with-analog-face-770
1 AEM 1-15 pound boost gauge, http://www.aemelectronics.com/boost-pressure-gauge-0-15psi-with-analog-face-1186
1 Knocklite http://www.vividracing.com/catalog/turboxs-knocklite-knock-detection-system-p-15475.html
1 MSD Boost Timing Master http://www.msdignition.com/Products/RPM/Timing_Controls/Timing_Controls/8762_-_Boost_Timing_Master_for_use_with_MSD_Ignition_Control.aspx
Everything was installed about 2 thousand miles ago, except for the supercharger.
Currently runs up to 5 pounds of boost and can be increased to about 8 lbs. with a smaller pulley (included)
Much cheaper than a 4.6 litre engine and more power.
The Rimmer kit was installed in Art Vigil's 1995 RRC for 125,000 miles with no problems. It was rebuilt 2 years ago by Magnuson http://www.magnusonproducts.com/.
The MegaSquirt is ideal for boosted motors, but I've had no problems running the system like Art did (with the addition of the BTM). I realized that the MegaSquirt system is for someone with greater access to a tuner and who loves fooling around with engines, software, etc. I'm too much of an old dog for these new tricks.
$2,700 for all.
