Introduction to the MegaSquirt® EFI Controller

Start here if you are new to MegaSquirt® EFI Controller, this contains important background information.

How the MegaSquirt® EFI Controller Works

This section contains fundamental information on how the MegaSquirt® EFI Controller works, and how it doesn't.

MegaSquirt-II™ Processor Upgrade

Here is information on the MegaSquirt-II upgrade daughter card.

MicroSquirt™ EFI Controller

Here is information on the MicroSquirt® EFI controllers.


MS-II Sequencer™ EFI Controller

Here are links to information regarding the MS-II Sequencer™ fully assembled ECU that can do sequential injection and individual cylinder fuel and spark trim.

The V3.0 MegaSquirt® Main Board

This section contains the information on the V3 main board.
If your V3.0 main board does not have the white manufacturing mark on the silkscreen in the upper right corner on the back of the board:

your board is NOT a Bowling and Grippo main board, and these instructions DO NOT APPLY to your board. See here for more details. Ask your seller to exchange it for a genuine B&G board, or give your money back.

MegaShift™ Transmission Controller

The MegaShift™ transmission controller code is for the GPIO board from B&G. This can control up to 8 forward speeds and eight shift solenoids (plus a 16x9 table for controlling a PWM line pressure valve). It has manual and fully automatic modes (16x9 load x speed table), with under and over rev-limit protection, 'paddle' shift buttons, and full data logging of all inputs and outputs (among many other abilities). See the Introduction for many more of MShift's functions.

The GPIO Board

    Assembling Your v2.2 MegaSquirt® Main Board

    This section contains the v2.2 main board assembly guide and troubleshooting information.
    If your V2.2 main board is RED, your board is NOT a Bowling and Grippo main board, and these instructions DO NOT APPLY to your board. Ask your seller to exchange it for a genuine B&G board, or give your money back.

    Various MegaSquirt® schematics and other info for troubleshooting.

    Wiring and Sensors

    This section has information on external wiring and sensors for use with the MegaSquirt® EFI Controller. It is mostly for MS-I, for MS-II, also see the individual documents (above) for IAC, ignition, MAF, knock sensors, etc.

    Injectors & Fuel Supply

    This section contains information on selecting and using air and fuel supply components for use with the MegaSquirt® EFI Controller.

    Tuning Your MegaSquirt™ EFI Controller

    This section explains how to configure and tune MegaSquirt™ on your engine.

  • MS-IIFUEL:
  • MS-IIIGNITION:
  • MS-I™ (fuel only):
  • TunerStudioMS

    TunerStudio is Phil Tobin's version of a tuning application for MegaSquirt®. It provides the ability to configure and tune all MegaSquirt® controllers.

    The tuning parameters available depend on the code and the associated INI files (not the tuning software), so the same descriptions applies to all tuning softwares.

    Files

    This section has links to various code files, software, and documents in PDF format.

    MegaSquirt® Embedded Code

    Here are guides to writing, compiling, and loading embedded code to MegaSquirt®.
