    finished nailing together the NepTune ECU tonight. It's a P06, but i've added IAB, EGR (for boost control) and VTEC, so it's essentially a P72 minus the knock sensor circuitry, which is fine, because I run custom made knock hardware into a spare input. New feature is the ability to control boost based off an analogue input, so i'm thinking traction based boost control off the ABS sensors. i.e. less traction = boost pressure reduction.

    inside the ecu


    that usb socket is supposed to be run to some convenient location in the car, but i thin it's a lot neater just running to the edge of the ecu case and running a cable from there. It's a lot easier when you need to remove the ecu for whatever reason.

    So impressive. I can only one day hope that the work a few of you guys here on PA put into your cars, like yourself Ian, Pacman, phattzy and a few others, is the amount of work I am able to put into my car one day!

    I told you from the start that Neptune was the better ECU.

    Looks the goods.
    Not to sure how effective the boost based traction control will be. The wastegate may be too slow to respond.
    An ignition cut or retarding the advance might be more effective, but certainly a nice feature to have with this setup.
    It's amazing how you can quickly get flogged at the lights if over enthusiastic on the throttle.

    I can adjust timing based on that same input too, calling it traction control might be a little misleading, maybe I should call it electronic slip limiter or something like that.

    The leather on my steering wheel has been getting thin in a couple of spots. To the point where it has actually worn through in one spot. Off to the retrimmers :S

    can I just ask - how much did it cost to rebuild the failed engine?
    "You don't feel the speed, in a way. You just don't feel the speed. The car is so stable and so comfortable.. unless you look at the speed gauge you don't realise you're going that fast. This is a good compromise between the sporting side and the comfort side. As I said, I think it is a super, super car." - Ayrton Senna

    there is around 4k in parts. Then add labour for assembly on top of that. The head had already been ported and flowed prior to this which was around 700.

    HAHA, My cup holders are 100% functional and easily replaceable if damaged, I'm sure this has nothing to do with my steering wheel.
