EFI or rather mapped ignition lives

Got myself back into gear with the EFI conversion and fitted up the dizzy (Jeep / Triumph ) hybrid. Set it up at 14 BTDC (limp home mode) and then fired up the ECU for the first time and hey presto I have 3D ignition... runs fine... not sure if there is any obvious improvement but it is an auto (hard to spot subtle torque differences) and it has not been optimised... certainly doesn't run any worse!!!

First obvious issue is the ECU is not yet talking correctly to my Laptop but hopefully a USB to serial adpdtor will sort that out (currently using a parallel port to serial adaptor)

John at CustomEFIS has a new page devoted to the Triumph kit... see above
