<br />Not that I know of. I just read the beta changelogs. There might be a 1.4 changelog.

<br />You flash it. There are instructions when you download the firmware. Command line and stuff.

It looks like it would be in the way from the pic, but when it's installed it's just enough in the line of sight to be useful but not intrusive. YMMV
Nice, me like. I was actually thinking about something like this last night, I'm just not sure how to mount it without drilling holes in the dash. How did you mount it?

Install, flash, whatever My only concern is updating and then completely ******* up my t00n, then no start sadness.

I did this probably twice, maybe 5 years ago with my DIYPNP while chasing my tail for months due to an internal hardware failure. I remember there were jumpers and command line shenanigans. I will figure it out, but it'll probably push me out of my comfort zone. This is probably not a bad thing.

I'll push your comfort zone.
<br />No jumpers or **** needed on MS3 (unless Revs unit is weird)
<br />I've been flashing all the 1.4 betas. Takes like 5 minutes.

******' Miatas. I don't want to lose any of my vents for gauges, but it sounds like i can't get 3x Accutechs and a wideband in view without doing that or throwing some stuff on top of the dash, which i hate doing.

That statement makes me want to BUY a racepack, but that's sooooo overkill for a dual use car.

Yes, IQ3. Was used for about... 10 minutes in the ill-fated Escort.

If you don't buy it, i'm going to sell my Megasquirt and use it with a Haltech again and suffer the wrath of MiataTurbo.

Uhh... 3x SMi are in my Amazon cart for $322.05 and retail is close to $700 for just the IQ3 display? Dunno about that one...

Gesso needs an IQ3 for his Exocet. True story.

Replacement VEI senders just hit my desk. I'm now $444 into the VEIs, $614 if you include the MTX-L I bought when I got frustrated with the VEI wideband display.

^^ This is why you never look at the receipts.

Sounds like you need to update your build thread

At $700, buy the IQ3, real dash integration >> gauges. I love my Mychron (except it's aversion to speed and tach on the display at the same time).

And yes, Geoff needs a dash. I had no idea how fast I was going. Combine that with the fact that the car isn't exactly subtle, and my license was worried.

I still have not driven that thing, and for good reason.

If for whatever reason the sky opened and $7500 dropped in my lap I'd buy an Exocet, turn the NB into a shell, SB100 the **** out of it and advance to my glorious turbo powered street legal emissions free future.

Actually, hold on a sec, I'm having terrible ideas again.
  • Hardtop is easily $750-$1000 if sold during winter.
  • I've got a set of perfect GenIII Bronze 15x9 6UL w/tires I can sell for maybe $700?
  • I technically have an entire spare BP4W I won't need after this, so $500+ right there.
  • If the market stays decent this year, I'm looking at maybe $4~5k bonus

Jesus christ, that's just under $7000 and I haven't even parted out the tub.

What's a perfect, non salvage title NB tub sans subframes worth these days?
