According to my friend megasquirt 2 would be best suited and should work with existing sensors etc once set up. How much work and grief it is though I don't know.

Thanks Mike - I'll call tomorrow.  I dropped Nigel Barker a line last week too.  Waiting for a response.
I mocked up the inlet manifold and carb that came with the car way back when this weekend, to take some measurements.  From the info (drawing of measurements) SC sent me I think their system would fit although I wasn't able to get to the car this weekend to confirm.
If I can get some info regarding the megasquirt and using it with the current set up I can make an informed decision which way to go.

Just spoken to a mate that understands megasquirt. He's said the best person to talk to is Shaun O'Donnell

Liking that colour Steve!  Will follow your build with interest.

IVA is a challenge (I've found), but mostly now self inflicted (fuel injection) and at least you'll know it's built properly.

The IVA criteria has changed here and there throughout since my build started (just after the ark landed on dry land) so worth a re-read perhaps.

Good luck and keep posting the updates

My Bodyshell is number 12.



Mine was built in 2013 as #6, so I guess they're cranking them out at almost 1/year...

I think Graham used an mgf steering column but his build thread will be worth a read. He's made it to IVA but not passed it yet (mainly due to engine tune issues).

Mike - I agree I am expecting the  IVA process to be a challenge. I read it through when placing the order for the shell a few months ago, but need to re-read before I start the build. The Marcos Build Manual also highlights a couple of areas for attention to get through the IVA process.

Neil - Thanks for the build link. Some of those photos will be really useful for my reference during the build.

Brian - Will review your thread. Thanks. My Bodyshell is number 12.
