What exactly do I need?
I have been planning a build for my MSM ever since I bought the car last September. I am finally at the point that I am comfortable starting to actually mod the car but want to get and EMS up and running first so I can tune as I go and learn little by little.
I have sifted through multiple forums for hours upon hours the past few weeks just searching for the right ECU and finally settled on building my own MS3. However, I am completely new to building chips and working with circuitry. After attempting to compile as much knowledge on my own over the past few days investing well over 15 hours of reading posts on this forum and DIYautotune I am exhausted. I have learned a tremendous amount about MS but still feel as though I have just scratched the surface.
I really just want a list of parts I need to buy without getting extra to start the process with everything I need all at once and then I can do more research on how to build my MS and use the software and such.
Given that I have a currently stock MSM that I daily drive and am looking to create a MS3 with functionality either identical or extremely similar to Reverant's last group buy What exactly do I need to order.
I know I'll need: a soldering iron, solder
tuning cable for the MS3
MS3 Daughter Board
MS3X expansion board(i think)
And then some assortment of resistors
and sensors(this is where I start to have
no idea what I need exactly)
Please feel free to correct me where I am wrong and offer any helpful suggestions. I know I am a noob with this and will take any criticism and try to learn from it all I can. Please keep it constructive though.
