Edit ---> Megasquirt Newbie, here, obviously!
And thanks to the moderators for approving my first post so quickly!
I'm in the planning stages for a 2180cc VW engine build (Baja Bug), and I am very intrigued by the Microsquirt.
I've known about the Compu Fire Ignition points replacement and coils for a long time, but I just saw this Hall Effect cap/rotor sensor for the 009 Bosch distributor:https://www.summitracing.com/parts/cfi-22511
I downloaded and read their install manual. It says that there is a dot, and showed a picture of it, near one of the magnets, and that this dot/magnet should be installed to point to the normal #1 Cylinder TDC position. According to Compu Fire (Pertronix), proper installation will guarantee proper, initial timing, and that it will never get out of synch, when used with their complete Distributorless Ignition System.
This tells me that there has to be more there than meets the eye. Gotta be another sensor or magnet that they use but, if that is so, I feel like this should work as a full blown, absolute cam/crank sensor, and, therefore should work great as the Microsquirt Input, as long as the voltage is made compatible.
Thoughts? Anyone using one of these as a Microsquirt input on a VW engine?
Thanks in advance and God Bless!
