I need to get that plate here so you can see it in action. Basically 2,3,4 have an attachment from the far side, and 1 has an attachment from the side closest to the system. The COP box sits on the last two valve cover bolts on the left hand side closest to the flywheel as your looking at the motor. The reason they wrap around is because its so close to the COP box mounting point that you have to have the connection go from the other side. If you move the physical box farther out the cable length from the stock harness to the COP box gets stretched. So this is a good solution to both problems while reducing assembly time, and allowing the user to have a harness thats really flexible.

That's a nice looking product Travis. I really dig the housing.
I have 2 suggestions for you though, and they're related.
>offer the unit w/o any circuitry for dwell reduction. Face it; everyone who "needs" this product for the most part is running some sort of standalone with the ability to set dwell on a 2d or even 3d map.
>offer a jumper system so that the folks with standalones can run easily run sequential instead of wasted spark
I think those are good ideas. I was planning on ditching the dwell circuitry because I noticed nearly every customer had a standalone. I do like the jumper though, just not sure how to implement it just yet. I need to think about it some more, and how to set up the circuit board.

Best,
Travis

So Travis,
Ive been interested in these COPs since you first announced them.
What is the realistic expectations you currently have for them? Will they be available within the next 3 months? 6 months? never? Do you think you will be increasing the price?

Tomorrow is January 15 -- the date Travis promised for issuing my refund. We'll see.

Of course I still believe in the idea of COPS, but I did not sign up to give his business a $450 R&D loan!!!!!!!

I'm working on some units here, goal is to get 5 done this weekend. I'm working on getting a loan back from my graduate studies to cover the COPS. That hasn't been disbursed yet though. I'm still waiting on it. I'm back studying towards my Ph.D. again so my time is being cut on a little bit.

I'll keep you guys posted, and probably updated Monday with a report on whats going on.

I'm at Indiana University Southeast/Purdue University joint campus filling some of my prereq's for Biomechanical Engineering at IUPUI. Taking Biocatabolism and molecular transport along with Quantum chemistry 2 with differential equations. Yum!

COP system progress has been good, and I have a holiday on Monday so thats another day towards the cause.

Looks like things are starting to turn around.

Are these still going to run with the stock ECU?

Travis said he'd have my refund for the non-working COPS by Jan. 15. Ten days have passed. No refund arrived.

If his company had a fraction of the orders he claims for other products, then cash flow shouldn't be a problem. Instead, he's still supposedly seeking a loan to cover it. Sounds very fishy to me. All I know for sure is I've been duped into giving him a $440 loan. He also still hasn't offered any evidence that the product was successfully tested on an NB before delivery, and he's still advertising it as an available finished product on his web site.

Some people here on MT apparently are happy with their Adaptronic computers from his company. As for his COPS, I offer a different four-letter word: SCAM.

I'll consider rescinding that assertion if he ever shows sign of being a legitimate businessman. (Oddly, his defense so far has been, "What do you expect? Didn't I mention that I'm NOT a businessman?")

He can start by paying the money he owes me.

Evan,

I'm still waiting on the loan. As for my money issues, just to give you an idea of how much I made last year. I legally don't have to file for taxes this year. I made about 2000 dollars worth of sales this week. Just enough to pay off one COP order. As a matter of fact I borrowed money for groceries last week because I wasn't going to be able to eat. The bigger question is: What am I going to do with a 150 ignition coils @ 54 dollars a piece? <shrug

Lets hope I can get the rest of these units knocked out, and no I still have not taken a single order on the COP system since the last time we talked. I've told 3 people not to order as a matter of fact. I'm currently working on a website revamp on a large scale and just haven't implemented everything yet. By the way it would be very weird for someone like me to go as far as I do for customers in writing responses and solving problems in one sector of my business and then completely neglect another. That's a bipolar level I'm not comfortable with, and doesn't at all resemble whats going on.
