    Here Are Some Details on MegaSquirt Installations Around the World:

  • Injection Type (Throttle/Port):port
  • Description:tired of CIS! really glad to have MS, looking forward to MJ, and really need to make a water/air intercooler...

    Feedback on 8/22/2002: I recently got back to Pennsylvania (and a computer). My old audi made the trip from Portland Or (actually 100 miles out of) to Berkley California (San Fran) to New Mexico (actually, portales, NM near Texas) to Colorado Springs, Colorado, to State College, PA.

    I would like to report that using the closed loop with MS I achieved 22-23 MPG at 70-85 MPH versus the sticker quote of my car new of 21 highway (and it's an old car with no major rebuild.... maybe that helps? loosened up a little?....)
