So has anybody put a MegaSquirt system on a genuine Studebaker V8?

Or kinkier yet, on the old Champion or Commander sixes? :woot:

I believe a couple have.., not only specifically, the MegaSquirt, but other FI assemblies/kits.
Why not, if you have the bucks to spend...?

Because you're relatively new I'll forgo the search speech and point out that John, PlainbrownR2 may have the longest continuous and one of the better and more technical threads on the forum.

No, no, I know nothing about it, pay no attention to the link :cool: (just joking)

Yeah, that's my project there. I'm one of 3-4 people I've counted so far who have Megasquirt in their vehicles. Up until it was sold, Gary Hart had a kit in his BBC Bonneville racer, and there was an individual on Youtube from overseas that had one in his Daytona. I've been working on that since 2009, and I've had that in mind probably since 2004, which started as a parts car, and I'm working my way up to an operable vehicle. It's a 1955 Studebaker Commander hardtop, that was a 259/3spd, and is now a 289/3spd with EDIS crank ignition, twin turbos and port injection :). I'm using the MS1e ECU to run the whole shebang. I also have a link on the Racing Studebaker Forum as well:
