This is a simple EFIE that's designed to work on 4 cyl/single exhaust vehicles.
Or. it can be doubled up for v6 or v8 models. I made one a long time ago before I bought a dual digital EFIE.
They do work, just not to the extent of the professional designs. I believe I spent maybe $15 US making a dualie.
Here are the plans:

Carter's your best bet. I haven't done squat with diesels.
If you don't have the electronic sensors, you should be set.

Lee Im looking you for few days but I cant find you!

Anyway, I install the poor's man efie (well I cut the wire, i know that is wrong but is work too)
My problem is how can I adjust the more voltage?
Do you have any suggestions about the additional voltage from battery?

Thank you..

Just a thought. newbie here. (a kiwi living in Colombia with high petrol prices Tongue)

If the question is demand:output ratio -------- why not tap into your alternator instead of your battery? (might need to add electronics so don't suck off too much juice) but wouldn't that bypass needing a relay switch/on-off switch for power up? Also the alternator at the higher revs would have increased output * increasing watts thru your cell?

let me know if you think this idea is viable! thanks Grin
