Very nice set up. Anything to get away from those MSC corrosion balls is a good thing.
Good job.
It was much easier than trying to put it in the cover. Same goes for when I use a Jesel belt drive. I would have to come up with several setups. This way, I have the same piece for all of them and an oil pump drive.
The cam position sensor is actually not needed. I can run it in wasted spark and not use the cam sensor.

Nice setup, Eddie. Could you not use any of the Merc 525 stuff?
About the only item I could have used would be the cam sensing oil pump driving thingy (distributor)

The coils I have are much hotter. Everything else is different and I don't want to pay Merc's prices.

Very Impressive. Necessity is the root cause of most inventions.

Can the costomer change their own timing, rev limmiter,ect? Is the software available?
Can a timming curve be created for each costomer.

The Whipple Stage X motor that Dustin built for me has the same setup...no distributor at all..dual knock sensors..individual coils etc...It runs off the Mefi IV computer.

No, the customer can not change the settings. There is some aftermarket software for making a few changes to a Mefi, but the ecm is password protected. Each engine does have it's own particular timing curve based upon what they have.
