Okay well I'm going to bump this, as I've had some developments. Picked up a full Corksport FMIC setup for an MSM, have everything mounted (yay interfooler). Got the XEDE, serial to USB converter, and -3AN feed line and all the feed fittings.

Currently working on this:
Oil drain, nobody sells a flange for the OEM MSM turbo's oil return on the center section to adapt to a -8AN line, so I'll have to have one made.
Coolant feed/return. Going to use -4AN probably, this a decent size, or do I need more?
Still need OEM wastegate actuator, MSM waterpump inlet, and perhaps most importantly, XEDE tuning Maps. Anyone have any idea where I can find a map to use until I figure out a real tuning solution? Also, anyone know which wideband integrates with the XEDE?

Thanks guys.

Why did you spend so much on an Xede if you could have gone standalone for that price? Just to pass OBD2?

It would kind of cool if you could post pics of your project and current setup...

Just curious if anyone had any laying around. I will contact them.

Wound up haggling for $600, so the price between the XEDE and a different standalone (squirt, etc) wasn't too bad, and I can pass OBDII easily and not have to worry about it.

Good point, I usually have pictures so... I'll go take some when I get home. It's only a pile of parts ATM, but it's better than nothing.
