Welcome! This is a similar path for any user or project. Make lists first to guide the project. They will greatly improve technical decisions and how quickly you succeed. It will not take long to save a lot of time.
• Basic Goals:
What results will you need to call it a success? Establishing basic goals will help set the paths, and help keep you on them. This is a list of only the very minimum
goals the project must accomplish. Some questions to get you thinking what they could be — Why are you doing this (carb conversion, performance, etc)? What are you expecting or need it to do? Is there a realistic budget? Is this temporary or permanent? Be as basic but specific as possible to set goals you can check-off as they are accomplished towards the end.
• Basic Requirements list:
What do your goals require you have, get or do? Racing rules, certain fuel type, certain hardware wanted or needed (port or TB injectors, turbo, fuel system, coil packs, etc.)? Must it plug into an existing system, or can it be a fresh connection? What do these requirements mean you need for hardware or features? Are you locked to them, or open to options you may not be aware-of yet?
Post these basic lists in your new project thread, so everyone can grasp where you're going with all this.
• Functional Plan:
Read the Wiki lightly to get a first glance of how to do those things, and begin to do a layout description and sketch drawings of your new system. A simpler version of the basic layout in the Wiki, including only the stuff you will use. As you lay it out following the Wiki descriptions and posts here, you will find things you forgot or didn't know you needed. The goal of this section is to have a specific vision and solid plan to quickly reach those listed goals, within those listed requirements.
Post progress in decisions, questions or actions. This will help others to help you with specific suggestions or answers, staying focused without going off-track and will speed the project. For example, posting a layout diagram will allow others to spot errors, missing stuff, or focused options. Better to know now than re-do it later. What crank sensor system should you use? Why? Do you need a module to use that sensor? And so on.
Now you can begin looking at the many types of ECMs that use Speeduino firmware, that include the features you must
have. It doesn't matter if they can do other cool stuff; only first that they can do what you need. This will narrow to one or a few of the best choices to meet your goals. Now you can collect whatever stuff you need (including the ECM), as shown in the layout plan and … do it!
"Doing it" is where you learn the most, and most quickly, things you "didn't know you didn't know". Get to this point as simply and quickly as possible. You began with only basics, as by now you will have entirely different ideas on how you would change or add things moving forward. Most of all — have fun!
