MG MGB Technical - Emerald Fuel Injection
|Does anyone have firsthand knowledge on this rig? Sounds like a well thought, fairly priced nuevo. Cheers, Vic|
|From the volumnous, overwhelming response, I guess Emerald has little following. I'm still just curious what guys are doing to fit EFI on other than the ZS changeup. Cheers, Vic|
|Just a bit OTT for MGs I think - a japspeed.turbo.kamakaze-drifters.BBS.com type site would be a better bet for opinions as it's usually seen in heavily modified/turbo engines. I know of it only from magazine articles, so can't vouch for it. Megasquirt/Megajolt is the (very) DIY budget option and I've heard of it used on a few MGs successfully.|
|Vic, I didn't see you start this thread. Emerald has a very good reputation over here for use on more modern modified engines.|
With an MGB you have the problem of batch injection and siamesed ports. In fact siameesed ports can even give you a problem with sequential injection. As a result there is a very low take up among classic MG enthusiasts. However, people who tune K series engines, as used in the MGF and saloons, will often favour Emerald.
Having said that there is a project on the Emerald web site that deals with the issues in fitting it to an A series midget.
Think Megasquirt with out the DIY bit and full vendor support. The man behind Emerald, Dave Walker, has written a very good book about engine management systems published by Haynes. It comes with an Emerald demo CD.
There is this place for EFI.

There is a Co. named total advance that I could not find now. But I found for TR6:

|This is a test|
I have not been able to put several MGB EFI links on this thread. Any ideas why?
This one has comments on Emerald;
|This forum does not seem to like a link that ends in .pdf from Moss. Here is the non-pdf MOSS link.|
There are others as well. I picked a few of interest to MGB's above.
You can do a search on Yahoo.com (for this works better than Google) using MGB fuel injection for more links.
