The [megamanual] is the best introduction to do-it-yourself engine management we've found so far on internet.
It's the first step towards successful engine modifications, if you're not an expert, read it.
- introduction, guidelines, engine-sensors: very nice collection of information
- HW assembly: motorola megasquirt specific, not relevant
- initial programming of the motorola processor with a Willette programmer: skip it. GenBoard is eaiser to reflash, see GenBoard/Firmware/BootLoader.
- basic fuel parameters tuning via MegaTune : applies to GenBoard, but see GenBoard/Manual/Config for extra parameters
- forums and such: don't ask for information on the yahoo MegaSquirt list (they apparently don't like anything that matches their affordability with superior functionality)
Similar ECMs - most have less functionality than VEMS, but better manual
These manuals get you acquainted with engine management in 1/15th of the time compared to reading forums or mailing list archives.
If you have read several manuals, please tell us your opinion which are the strengthnesses of each - or just in short: which one you liked in general.
- [Autronic manual] is just 19 pages, which includes a 5 pages long reference table for variables. Still contains most of the useful information. Impressive. Only possible with good tuning-software. That is not the real autronic manual, it's the the real manual is 102pages in revision I have. The 102 page manual still only cover the basics.
- Haltech docs: [Haltech ECM manual] (or this [an older version:]. Haltech is not as good as Autronic
- [Accel DFI Gen7 Manual]
- doc of other ECMs
