Piggy-back Install This post is about the Rabbit ECU piggy-back install for the Commodore/Chev SS L98 engine with CAN bus. The Rabbit ECU takes full control of fuel and timing by way of a separate injector and igniter wiring harness. The OEM connectors and removed and cable-tied back to the OEM harness. There are a… Read More

Crank Triggers This post is about how sequenced outputs for injection and ignition are set up in the Rabbit ECU. For a basic install, it is very likely that the Rabbit ECU can use the stock crank trigger whether it is variable reluctance, Hall Effect or optical. A crank trigger alone can get you up… Read More

Bosch Jetronic Classic car EFI systems like Bosch Jetronic came about before micro-processors were developed for use in vehicles. Jetronic is commonly found in EFI vehicles from the early 70’s up to the mid 80’s. These systems are simple and reliable. But back in the 70’s automotive systems weren’t designed to be connected to diagnostic… Read More

Shumatec BOSSA Not everyone wants to tinker with the source code of the Rabbit DIY ECU. You don’t need to be a programmer to get your EFI project up and running easily, there are firmware binaries you can download then transfer to the Arduino Due. This process of programming the firmware binary takes only a… Read More

Air Flow Meters – DIY The basics Air Flow Meters (AFMs) have been widely used in EFI systems since the 1970’s. The simplest AFMs are basically a hinged flap with a spring return. More air pushing past the flap causes more opening of the flap, and a change in voltage from a potentiometer attached to… Read More

Rabbit DIY ECU – Connecting to Vehicle CAN CAN bus is found in every road vehicle sold in Australia from 2006, along with the OBD2 protocols that have standardised vehicle diagnostics. The OBD2 protocols (also known as SAE J1979) provide a common language used by scan-tools to communicate fault codes and provide information useful for… Read More
