Default Installing Ms3x soon... Questions

**edit** meant to put this in the MS section... Please move if possible


iirc... Brain shipped my MS with this white connector into the large bagck one. I haven't looked at the factory ecu connector(s) but how is this going to get plugged in, and what do I use the white connector for? What does that get wired to?
I


My other question is regarding my wideband. Where do I wire (the brown wire on my innovative lc-2) into the MS?

Thanks for any help you guys can offer!

I honestly don't even know what benefit the lc-2 has over the lc-1... I only ended up with the lc-2 because I bought it just as the lc-1 was being phased out lol

Well after reading through the gravy train manual... I realized I dont have a boost control solenoid yet so I'm going to order this now---> EBC Electronic Boost Control Solenoid Kit DIYAutoTune.com Not that I will have boost until July anyway but still... better to be prepared lol

EBC isn't for everyone. I had it on my car and I thought it was a bitch to tune. What I like about it though is that you can put it on a switch. I did, and when I'd drive around I'd be on 7psi wastegate, but with a flip of the switch I'd be on 15psi. There are a lot more benefits than that, but it wasn't for me.

I see in your signature that you have a tial EWG. In my opinion, it's so much easier to change the springs than it is to tune EBC.

Boost control on the MS3x is so easy to tune it's not even funny. Plus the code is worlds improved from whatever MS2 system you were trying in the past.

Even when using EWG.

Seems to me that it costs less for a EBC than a MBC (Home Depot versions not included), and, then you can control it. I am trusting that it will indeed be easy to set up with the MS3.
