Default diy electronics

i was just looking around for cheap knock sensors and i stumbled upon this great site
www.autospeed.com they have a lot of diy tech articals they also sell diy electronics kits
like http://store.autospeed.com/Items/144...uel%20Adjuster
http://store.autospeed.com/Items/144...njected%20Cars
http://store.autospeed.com/Items/144...t%20Controller
http://store.autospeed.com/Items/144...h%20with%20LCD
http://store.autospeed.com/Items/164...%20Alert%20Kit
they have much more than this. i like the fact that these kits you put together yourself
if your like me and dont trust the craftsmanship of other similar products you can be assured
the only reason it may not work right is your own fault for not following directions

it seems14point7 only have 1 version of the egr/02 sensor too fancy for my tastes
im happy with leds rather than lcd plus all of the products in the forementioned site can all be linked together and even into a megasquirt system.


the only downfall is they are located in australia so it takes a little longer to get the products
shipping is not so bad since these are fairly light products

I like 14point7 since it's a little less of a hassle to put together and it makes a cheap datalogger.


edit: why would you megasquirt a trionic?

nah im pretty happy with the jetronic my 5 year old is assembling the knock sensor for a
science project so i hope its not too difficult . im guessing no more than 6 solder points on the
board
what are the major differences between t5 and jetronic ?what would i gain over the red apc i already have in and would it still work with it?

The ignition cassette handles it. There's a weak current applied to the spark plugs that is measured by the ecu.
