So, you got it running now?
Not yet. After fixing a fuel pressure issue, my wideband was also bad, so I am waiting on it to get here before I can try and start this thing.

Re: Megasquirt MS3X KA24DE wont start

I got some 01 maxima coils now and I wired them up. That fixes my spark issue and I now have my base timing correctly. The current issue right now is that I am getting extremely high fuel pressure. 65-70 psi when I want it to be 43. I have a direct mount fuel pressure regulator and when I adjust it,...

Re: Megasquirt MS3X KA24DE wont start

I am going to order some replacement coils but I need someone to help me out in figuring out as to why the old ones keep overheating-- before I install the new ones. They are heating up no matter what I do. After putting my coils in test mode and selecting coil b only to be tested, I have found tha...

Re: Megasquirt MS3X KA24DE wont start

I have tried cop and wasted cop. Going high and going low. The coil is still getting hot. I went back to the settings that I had when they were fine and they are still getting hot. I have changed none of the wiring. It could be possible that when the coil overheated, the components in the plug were ...

Re: Megasquirt MS3X KA24DE wont start

Can't find the manual for the 30-2850, they were superceded by 2854 which are >Here< https://i.ibb.co/VJB7zR2/coil.png So the setting in MS is uncorrected before voltage adjustment, I'd set it for the 14v value of 2.4ms As far as spark duration goes, 5.0 seems a bit high. I'd lower it to 2.0 and go...

Re: Megasquirt MS3X KA24DE wont start

I didnt realize how blurry that picture was. The wire colors from left to right are black red green white. I have yet to actually test their individual signals.

Re: Megasquirt MS3X KA24DE wont start

Injectors, etc...? Im running 80lb/hr deka injectors with an obx racing fuel rail. My coils were Ae...

Re: Megasquirt MS3X KA24DE wont start

Nope, distributor phasing doesn't matter one bit if he's not using it to fire the plugs. Only thing in the distributor he is using is the trigger wheel. All he needs to do is find tooth #1 angle, then Megasquirt takes care of sending spark to the correct cylinder. If he ever removes the distributor...

Re: Megasquirt MS3X KA24DE wont start

1.5.1 is correct version for MS3X. Your Basic/Load Settings look okay. But in General Setting you may want to change Incorporate AFR Target from 'don't include' to 'include'. This will make your VE table more meaningful. In Ignition Settings tab under Ignition Options/Wheel Decoder I see one error....

Re: Megasquirt MS3X KA24DE wont start

I'd start from the beginning and verify the actual install, then verify timing alignment. Good advice from D21turbo and I'll echo that, plus this; http://www.megasquirtpnp.com/docs/mspnp_g2_ns9501_s14.php?isModel=1 That article is for the MS2 but everything about Verifying and adjusting base timing...

Re: Megasquirt MS3X KA24DE wont start

Before I start, I am just now reading the thread, and I will take all of your advice into account. Everything in this reply has been done before I read this. I am rather new and have been doing research for the past couple of days. I have a decent understanding of tunerstudio now. Going over the car...

Megasquirt MS3X KA24DE wont start

I would appreciate a bit of help here. I have bought someone else's project s14 with of course a KA24DE. They installed an ms3x and some performance mods to set it up for boost, but lost interest when they couldn't figure out how to tune it. Tunerstudio does not seem to be the most userfriendly. I h...
