Re video, we need to get you some server/upload space so we can youtube it for you! Let me know if you can find a way to upload the raw file(s) across the G-firewall, if not, we'll sort something out for you. You could use unix "split" to chunk it into 20meg blocks and email them to me if you want :-)

I have another GM 3.0 v6 engine on my 99 Buick Regal, I wish to do ignition using FreeEMS because the engine can not output enough power when the RPM is above 1600, the stock ECU ignore the 24x crank input but calculate the engine RPM by 3x output from ignition module. I think this is the performance bottle-neck. What's your opinion? I found it is difficult to crank the engine by hand to mark the timing mark

This should be the next FreeEMS powered car in China
