Tinyiox is cheaper than Reverat's standalone box and it does a hell of a lot more.

Plus I had to wait like three months for Reverant. Wish I knew about Tiny at the time...

It can, for another 50 bucks or so.

I paid, I think $170 something shipped for wideband/obd2. I have used OBD2 exactly once with torque, I got a usbotg android phone like a week after I finally got the OBD2 adapter. It's is a thousand times more useful.

Sell wideband/can module. Buy tinyiox, print us all cases. Profit.

I'm not good at it but I can probably manage that. There are dimensions on the website. Yank was going to draw one up.

What's your preferred case method. I've always done an acrylic top, 3d printed middle. Acrylic bottom.

That's probably the fastest way to get it done. I'll need to buy some ABS plastic, the stuff I use normally will go soft in a hot car. Long flat surfaces are a bitch with ABS.

I still have the laser cutter too, so that's right up my alley.

Yes. But use the tinyiox ini. I'll send links when I get to work. It's real cool.

We will have to build some conditioning circuits for certain inputs but it should be easy.

So i drove it to work and back today. With the amount of freeway driving I do- would commute.

I got challenged by an NSX at a light, he looked surprised that it was actually decently fast, lol.

This is so much fun... @ only 7-8psi with an incomplete tune.

Rebuilding the motor fixed the smoke and stuff. The only real issue I had after that was the rings possibly didnt seal, and it appears even that is fixed. Im still running stock PVC, and dipstick stays put 4 out of 5, 30min runs, even with boosted 6k rpm pulls. I have the deezum catch stuff to install with the aidan check valve, juts been too lazy.

Other than that, 3rd gear synchro started intermittently grinding, but thats an ongoing issue that this tranny has displayed since the day i got it. Just means i need to dump the 2 year/20+ track day syncromesh and replace with new. Also sitting in the garage, just been too lazy.

Waste gate is maxed out. I need to hook up EBC (also sitting int he garage, just la... maybe exhausted is a better way to describe it), and then im going to settle on 10-12 psi as my street tune until I can get a 6 speed and run allofit. I also need more injector to run much more than 10-12 psi. Right now, when I spike 8 PSI at about 6k rpm with 11.2 AFR, injectors are at 68% DC.

Its so much more enjoyable in traffic when you actually have the power to pass people. 4rth gear, 4k rpm roll on power is awesome.

That doesnt exist yet, and will be more difficult than you think... well the bellhousing part anyway. Need one hell of a prescise, stiff, jig.
