anyone running a megasquirt 3x can i ask what you set the gain at for your knock sensor i have set mine all to .5 as i had the gain to high and just sitting and running the car and reving it was setting off the knock sensor and retarding the timing but i know they should be a bit different for each cylinder as they are closer or further away from the knock sensor

Not sure this will help anyone but i was messing around with the Water/methanol control on the megasquirt 3x and i found i had the Hz set wrong for the solenoid as i had it to high so it was not running the solenoid on lower duty cycle like 30 percent duty so i was not getting any injection at 5 pounds of boost but now that i have it working right i can make a map of how much water/meth i need at x amount of boost and rpm giving me a better methanol delivery for better performance

chassis dynamometer is all picked up and in my shop i have much to do to get it running most of it is cleaning it up and making it pretty . I have talked to some who have the same dyno they say you can do up to around 500 whp that will cover what i want to do

it was cheap but it will do what i want as it is a old smog dyno with eddy brake, i need to spend $800 for software and data acquisition / brake controller and i have a 20 + foot camper trailer given to me the camper is junk ut the frame is strong and in great shape for mounting this dyno so i can travel with it and dyno a car if someone wants and the car owner can tune it or try to tune it
