It's been three years since I put the megasquirt computer in the turbo  
bugeye. Good time to look back.
    Since I finished the tuning and drove it 4k to LOTO and back '08,  
I've put on thousands of miles, surprised and embarrassed a few Miatas  
and assorted ricers in the hills, and NOT blown out another set of  

The same plugs are still in and look perfect, zero re-tuning, still  
cold starts perfectly and pulls away from the garage like a modern  

Overall this has made all the difference. To operate a 1275 with a  
turbo on pump gas and get both town and country performance with  
dependability seemed too much to ask but this has worked perfectly!

Over 100hp, over 35mpg on a good day and down to 20mpg on a GREAT day.

Bugsy runs so well I'm forced to spend all my time building model
