I am a college student in my junior year of aerospace engineering. I have a huge passion for cars and racing and so joined my university's Formula SAE program. I have a lot of automotive design and manufacturing experience and from FSAE is where I learned about Speeduino (some teams use them on their cars; hopefully we will too). Admittedly, engine tuning and electronics are my shortfalls (I lead aero design) and so have some questions about a project I will be undertaking.
I have a 1984 Mazda RX-7 GSL-SE (the one with the 13b in it) and have had grandiose plans to race it for a while now. Recently, the engine electronics went on the fritz. I sourced it to the igniters and, as the Mazda units are ~$400, I modified it to work with GM HEI units. That worked for about two days then those blew. Now, engine modification wasn't high on the top of my list at first (it was the suspension and a roll cage), but since the electronics are already shot, I might as well upgrade them to what I want rather than source older, more expensive OEM parts.
My idea is to strip the engine bay down to its bare essentials which means I will be removing the air pump, power steering box, A/C, cold start assist, oil metering pump, BAC, and all the other little emissions bits. As well, I'll be removing the stock intake/throttle setup and replacing it with a custom ITB setup.
Anyways here's my list of parts along with any questions associated with them:
-UA4C for Speeduino Seawolf Sea Fox
---This is the one from WTMTronics. If I order this with the soldering service, what other assembly is required? Will the ECU work (obviously I need the ARDUINO)?
---Are there any Teensy adapters made for the UA4C?
-Slim Hammond Case
-IAT and CLT
-SLC Free 2
---I've seen some posts about an onboard wideband controller; did anything ever come of that?
-Crank Trigger wheel 36-1 from DIY Autotune and Hall Effect sensor
---Will any hall effect work or only certain cars/OEMs? If so, which?
-Toyota Yaris Coil Packs
---I would like to do coil on plug and it seems these are the shortest, most accessible smart coils around. Will this work with Speeduino?
-Tuner Studio MS Ultra
There's a lot that goes into the ITB's themselves and I am still working through that design but as part of it, I would like to the 5th/6th port of the 13b to open using electronic control. These don't have to be a full-throttle by wire setup, more just open/closed with maybe some variation so would it be possible to run them using the VVT settings built into Speeduino?
Finally, is anything glaringly obvious missing from my parts list?
Thanks a bunch to everyone!
