Megasquirt 1 is not good at dealing with electrical noise. That could be part of your problem. You live in NZ, you should switch to something that's common over there, like Haltech. Otherwise, GM V8's typically run systems from Holley or FAST. I would just ditch the thing. Nobody uses Megasquirt 1 anymore. Using an unsupported/barely supported ECU is in general a bad idea.

cheers for the reply raymond looks like i will have to ditch it and search for something that works for me cheers
