Ray is correct.

The PC USB to serial converters are DB9 connectors. You can plug a PC in to either P-mag, as needed.

Had you wired your P-mags to one DB15 connector and wanted to use a PC withe the...

Jeff, just make a Y adapter that comes from each DB9 connector to the DB15 connector required by the EIC.

Did you bring the tach line to each of the DB9 connectors? That is required.

Mehrdad,

Just to be clear, are you talking about the parallel valve engine in your -7A, which you have since sold?

The angle valve engine in your -14A seems to cool much better than the parallel...

Fred, the EIC is designed for the 2-1/4" hole, so you will need to buy an adapter. Putting it on your panel will allow you to make adjustments, preferably on the ground.

A couple of questions for you:
1. Is this a 180 hp parallel valve engine or 200 hp angle valve?
2. What compression ratio are you running?
3. What is the manufacturer's recommended timing setting?

As Ray's post above mentioned, this is covered in my first post.

The "A curve" starts firing at 26.6 degrees BTC and advances out from there as manifold pressure drops off.

Scott,

You should be good to go.

With you indexing the P-mags 1.4 degrees, not starter teeth, you should be fine.

Let us know if you see a drop in CHT's. The couple of knots increase in speed is...

I recommend you use Version 3 of the EICAD program. Once you make and save your change, exit the program completely, start it up again, and query the P-mags to verify your configuration.
