Well, for most of you, there's not much you can do, however if anyone local is watching, you can get in touch, and come around one evening or one weekend and literally help me do this. Candidates, in rough order of likelyhood:

1) Mazda Lantis Type R, KF-ZE, manual, 7500 RPM of smooth V6 music.
2) Suzuki Wagon R Wide, K10A, manual, 8300 RPM of wooshing 1 litre I4 turbo sounds
3) Volvo 740 Sedan, B234F, mechanical auto, 6000 RPM of smooth short stroke DOHC power
4) Volvo 240 Wagon, B230F, mechanical auto, < 6000 RPM of smooth short stroke SOHC torque
5) KP60 Starlet, 4K, K50 manual, < 6000 RPM of noisy pushrod reliability DONE!
6) C34 Stagea, RB25DE w/ VVT, < 7000 RPM of 6 cylinder growl
7) Oval 1954 VW Beetle, Type 1, manual, < 5000 RPM of clattery flat four sluggishness (not currently viable)
8) 1961 VW Beetle, Type 1, manual, < 5000 RPM of clattery ignition only controlled classic (not currently viable)

Other cars:

1) Truck, already FreeEMSed, #2 DONE!
2) Hotel, already FreeEMSed, #3 DONE!

Temp cars:

1) Millenia, destined to go to car heaven next Saturday afternoon
2) Volvo 940, destined to become a caravan sometime soon

Lantis has a new engine waiting for it, and requires FreeEMSing before that. May or may not be able to use the ECUs that I have for connectors. A donor Lantis ECU for the connector would be handy! Donations accepted.

Will require a simple new decoder, too, would like someone else to write that. These are fun and easy, good starter material for a new contributor.

Suzuki requries a connector and a decoder. Donations of connectors/ECUs accepted. Jeff is doing the decoder, very very slowly.

Planning to run the Volvo 940 as a trial for the 740, and only count it as one new engine (effectively what it is). This may require some code tweaks, or some new hardware on the engine. The goal here is to have a B234F+T setup on the 740 that's easy to pull off for WOF time, and a good basis for the Mild B234F/B230F hybrid that I want to put in the 240 eventually. I picked up a donor ECU for this today, and I'll have an extra spare already anyway.

No rush on the 240, it's not currently street legal anyway. See above for game plan for this car, should be pretty doable, as a mild setup won't require any other fancy engineering.
