Hi I'm new here, I'm currently working on a project, ive started with a Mitsubishi colt and I've installed megasquirt as a piggy back system controlling spark and fuel. my intention is to convert it to rwd so i want to change the orientation of the engine so i don't have to run a awd box and waste power also i want to do something different I've looked through your site and its proved very useful, but i came across a mention of using coil sticks from a GSXR to get a cop set up.

i looked but i cant find any mention of which model of the bike to get the sticks off be it 600, 750, 1000 so i was wondering which sticks give the best results and which are people using ?

thanks for a great site and any help it the future

Jake

I've got some from a 750. As far as I know they should all be very similar.

thanks for the reply i think a trip down to wonderland that is the scrappers is in order, for some new parts to play with, do they clip up to the standard sparkplugs or do you need to swap the end fitments, sequential injection here i come Smile

thanks for the help

What do you have to do to get the Megasquirt to use the GSXR coils? I had the GSXR Denso coils in my racecar and loved the clean setup. I was using an Autronic CDI box for spark. If there is a way to use a Megasquirt without a 2nd ignition box, I'd love to sell this Autronic one.

My understanding is that Megasquirt can fire the COPs and be wired up directly. I used Ford EDIS on another Megasquirt car and the wiring wouldn't be much different.
