The proper job protection. Been doing some research. A few people have built Megasquirt ECUs that will plug straight into the Saab C900 loom, with the adition of the Megasquirt ECU Map sensor, and an intake temp sensor (and a Lambda sensor if you have a pre CAT C900), you can have the Megasquirt controlling fueling and ignition and taking the knock sensor signal from the APC. A Megasquirt is a fully 3d mapable DIY engine management system that you build yourself, or pay someone to assemble and test. Volvo owners with LH systems have been building them, and adding APC technology for turbo 240/260's for a while now. You could get better fuel economy, more power, have proper control over larger injectors all the things that you wished you had but didn't want to change your car to get. -- Carl Robson Car PC Build starts again.
