  • Anyone see the 18 JAN 05 Rides on TLC?

    Basically a 67' Chevy II MAXED out. Here is the link to the article on Year One's site.

    Unfortunatly they did not cover the onboard PC very much, but what they did show was some "new" engine management system for the ZZ572 Big Block that was installed. Basically you could control the whole engine thru the PC, just what alot of us are looking for.

        The car is a Chevy Nova created entirely out of fiberglass. The Interior was done from scratch - it is ALL custom work. Just imagine - we spend hours, days, weeks fiberglassing our dashes - these guys created the whole interior from scratch. Amazing.

                    *drool*

                    screw digital gauges, I want those autometer ones!
                    give me some cobalt [autometer.com] gauges...

                    I wish I could see them in RL. I live like 2 minutes from autometer and they don't even have any on display! (or make the cobalt ones in their main building)

                        I believe they used the Accel DFI system for the engine management computer.

                        From Year One page: "DFI Gen 7 EFI system with prototype “coil per cylinder” ignition system."

                        Accel DFI Page

                        I used their original DFI system on a car 10yrs ago and it was very cool back then, but you had to understand how to map fuel and ignition tables to get the full advantage. This system replaced the factory wiring and ECM then connected by serial cable to any PC, you would load the tables to the DFI unit and go. It also offered real time engine data from all the sensors back then. Now I hear the new systems are almost plug and play and has some cool new features. Price in 94 for this system was $1700, but it was the first laptop progamable EFI system on the market. For you boaters, Mercruiser has been using this since about 96 on most of their EFI setups and still do far as I know.

                        Cheers,
