Speeduino? Arduino powered ECU?

Postby Jayrdee » Sat Oct 06, 2018 5:16 am

Has anyone ever heard of this?

Hardware / feature list

The arduino mega by itself is a pretty powerful micro-controller, and its all open-source so its easy to write code and upload it to the board. I see them all over campus with other engineering students too. For big EE / Programming nerds like myself, this is DIY ECU is super interesting. I browsed quite a bit through their forums and there's a few people that have them running on their daily driven vehicles. I wouldn't be opposed to giving this a shot with my AE86.

If this were available when I was a broke-a$$ engineering student, I'd be all over it; Low risk/high reward. On a stock 16v?

I took a few Mechatronics classes that used a BASIC Stamp when I was in school. I had to build a robot that could handle a bunch of different obstacle courses. For the last test, each student set up their robot in a conga line (robot was programmed to follow/track objects).

Now, it sits on my desk at work. Whenever someone asks about it, I turn it on and they always get a kick out of it.

Exactlyyyyy. I'm broke, so this is perfect haha. And yeah this would be going on a stock 16v. I'd like to do ITBs later too (just because they look cool) so having a programmable ecu is a must. I know the whole thing uses that TunerStudio software, but I wonder how in depth I could go in the arduino with my extra little coding background.

That robot sounds dope. I wish my university had more classes like that where you actually build stuff. I always do better in the labs, but since the University of Kentucky is a research school, they're all about the books/theory.

I think it would be fun just to build one of these just for the experience. If you can build a megasquirt you can definitely do this.

build it and they will come

oem electronics r old now, n could use an upgrade
every old car forum can use a resident standalone-ecu guru
we have a megasquirt one on out starquests forum... he's made a helluva difference, in yielding some fast fun cars
I believe one of the early DIYauto guys was a member here.... MR2 4AG on their website might be him... James?

I like the way that sounds 8-)

I really think I'm going to do it sometime in the near future. I'm poor, and like aukword1 said, it sounds like fun and good experience.
