Default Help, need a computer for a HP500EFi ASAP !!

Mine is aparently fried, anyone know of a used computer for sale? We have the MEFI burn system so I don't care if it has been recalibrated different from stock. We will calibrate it for my Whipple.

Any help is apreciated !!!

I would first find out what fried the original unit. And then try Mark Boos at Precision Marine.... 504-469-7463. I purchased 2 from a few years back

Good idea enticer, better find out how this happen before I bolt up another . I am going to speak to my builder more, and probably call buddy at MEFIburn and ask him what could have caused this.

Check all of your wiring and connections really good. It is a VERY rare occasion that one of those computers take a dump. I have only run across 2 that have been no good, and I have dealt with a bunch of them over the last dozen or so years. Check the grounds especially well. Good luck.

Eddie, can I have my builder give you a call next week? This setup is new to him. His efi guy has done very many, but none with a Whipple. I found it odd that the computer is fried too. I will pay for your time on the phone with him. I'm not looking for free help. Just experineced help. This engine isn't keeping the air fuel ratio even. It is different at same rpms each pull he tries to make. Hard to explain in print.

Let me know if you are available for my guy to call you.

TIA.
