I too, am going to turbo my Justy. I plan on using a small turbo off of a 1.6L Mercury Capri, and the matching intercooler.

I've researched Megasquirt systems, and like the idea, but I cant help feeling overwhelmed. I've been turning wrenches for a long time on the "repair" side of things, but till recent have never really dabbled in the would of performance upgrades.

I have a EFI 1.2L (that will be rebuilt prior) and was wondering who out here uses megasquirt, and could advise me on what parts I would need with the unit.

Some examples are, but not limited to,
The "Regular" Harness I see everywhere
Oxygen sensor (Narrow Band vs. Wideband)
MAP Sensor (I heard it comes with its own, but what about the one I got)
Fuel Injectors... Can I use the stock ones, or swap to XT6 injectors?
Coil Pack

The last inssue I have is that I'm going to fire the works up around an ECVT (I know, I Know) B/C the system is technically "piggy-back" it shouldnt interfere with the ECVT operations. And Don't be alarmed, I have a ready to go Manual swap just waiting for the ECVT to die. But I really want to see an ECVT turbo. lol
Any Help would greatly be appreciated, and anyone who would like to support me and my friends through this project would be immortalized in Justy Folk Lore forever........well, its a start...

Not sure if there will be any electronics issues with the ECVT, but it will likely blow pretty quick with the extra hp/tq of the turbo.
Look forward to seeing it done, though!
