Default TinyIOx

Has anyone used they TinyIOx here. I'm thinking about getting one. Having all the extra inputs, and the digital WBO2 input sounds appealing.

The other options are the CAN-EGT module from DIY autotune, and the MSlabs WBO2 CAN module.

But the tinyIOx seems a bit more modular. I have been playing around with the settings in TS and there is a lot of stuff you can do with it. I would need to make a small case for it but was wondering if anyone else had experience with it.

Before you buy one let me know, they ship from Europe right? That supposedly can add vss to my old ms2, plus more.

Looks easy enough to print a case for.

Canada. Shipping is cheap. Like $4.50.

Yes. I linked it in your thread earlier. It can add a **** ton of stuff to your ms2.

Look at all of the possibilities!

Yes that is push button start. Like real push to start.

I have been considering one of these I/O boards (either the regular or tiny) off and on. I really like the idea of bringing in the AFR digitally and having extra inputs etc.

I'd really like to see one of these packaged with a GPS and/or accelerometer.

It's a megasquirt canbus device. It actually gets programmed through the megasquirt.

Then they talk over canbus.

Is there a way to add that menu to my tunerstudio so I can see what it does, or do I have to wait till I buy it?

Yes. Those were my screenshots. Go to the link I posted and there are instructions.

All I see is talk of firmware updates and push to start.

I don't want my car stolen, I just want to see those menus. those firmware updaters don't do anything.

I think I got it working, no push button start on ms2 I guess. I have no idea how the inputs and outputs work with a real tune, but if it's what I think it is, meh. Won't add much of anything to ms2. No vss, nothing other than vss adc value in datalogs. I'd be able to do sequential spark while keeping my shift light and ecu coolant fan control.

I already have digital wideband, all I want is seq ignition. I'm going to get a stock coolant thermoswitch, much cheaper than all this.

MS3 has had push to start functionality in the firmware for like 2 years.

I don't own a TinyIO, but plenty of other users do. You'll probably get more feedback at the msextra forum.

I install/use CAN EGT and Microsquirt IO.

Yep. I've been reading over there, just wondering if anyone here had experience. I think its on my list of winter things. I like the price point, and its the right amount of DIY for me.

I'm confused as to why you need this with a MS3x, doesn't it have plenty of IO on it's own? If i just ditch my MS2 and go straight on up to MS3x, can't I bring in EGT and more natively?

What is it you are trying to add, just the digital wideband?

2 wheel sensors
1 Datalog
1 Launch control
1 EGT
1 Flex
1 Oil Pressure
1 Oil Temp
1 Variable launch control
1 pit lane limiter switch
1 External map

It starts to add up

Currently I only have 1 ADC left, and 1 spare digital input.
