My father and I are doing beginning a project together to make a fully programable engine managment system by this summer (ign, fuel, etc.). He's made controllers for 4-cyl, 2-cyl, etc. but nothing for a rotary. My dad plans to get the PC board designed by summer time (as this is a side project) and I need to do all the programming. I'll be instaling it on my car first to test the system out but he plans to sell a few for fun. He's estimating that it'll cost $400 for the system. It'll be a limited production but it'll be a lot cheaper than any other system out there. He runs Control Systems Inc. http://electroniccontrol.com. There's not much to look at but for credibility purposes. I'll post updates on the project as it progresses.



I posted this in the performance section but decided to post here to let all the 2nd gen owners know of this.

I think a "black box" to convert the flapper style MAF to a hot wire type, such as the Ford ones would be a great idea too.

No there will not be any MAF any more. I was discussing this with my dad a little more and we talked about maybe making a drive by wire system for the throttle. I think that's a little too elaborate though. I'll look into the MAF to hot wire type thing.

sounds interesting depending on usability and features id be all for it, especially if it saves money.
