Hi, after a little trouble with the Microtech unit we're temporarily on a DTAfast ECU.
Now, we've everything wired in but I'm having a little think about the coils, I can't remember if they run inverted trigger or not?
The DTAfast is setup as standard to go to infinate resistance on the trigger to signal 'off', but I'm pretty sure the Microtech was setup the other way around, with continuity being the 'off' signal?
The only problem is, if I connect it up wrong and crank her up, either the coils or the ECU will get fried!

No, it was the temperature sensors - flitting all over the place, checked all the wiring it, tried known good sensors, no dice, so the dyno operator (whom we bought it off) send it straight back, sounded like he'd had that before, or heard of it.
Did do a quick run on his dyno actually up to 6k, to make sure the engine/installation was OK (had quite a lot of oil in rotors and stock manifold - which was concerning), where it made 166bhp at the wheels, that was on a Rototest hub dyno. Went somewhere else for a full map due to time issues.
