Also, I'm assuming I'll need at least 5-6 feet of hose to make it into the car and under the steering wheel (for a '99)? Anyone know how much I'll actually need? Does the hose material matter? Any vacuum hose will do?

Thanks
3mm ID. Silicone is best, as it very easy to route.

Thanks.

As for mounting, maybe some thin sheet metal with 4 holes for the MS, and two tabbed holes to join up with the OEM bracket? That might not be too hard... Surely I'm not the first trying to put an MS in a 99 right?

Can't remember what size I bought but I needed 10' to go from a port just behind the TB to behind the passenger seat. I just took my MS to the store with me to make sure I got the right dia.

Right. I have no idea what other people are doing, it would be interesting to get some feedback.

I've seen threads about setting up tuner studio that mention selecting firmware etc. Do those threads apply to your ECR Rev? In otherwords, are there any other steps, besides the ones you outlined in your instructions, to get TunerStudio up an running for someone who has just downloaded the software and has not touched any other settings?

No, just follow the instructions I sent you. Your unit already has a basemap loaded.

I sent you a PM earlier, Dimitris.

For the rest of you who have installed it in a NB, how is fitment under the dash? Should I request an extension for the harness to fit behind the glovebox or is there room under the driver's side dash?

I'll find out on Saturday... and let you know. I *think* that it will be possible to mount it in the vicinity of the OEM ECU, but have yet to try it. It will require some sort of custom mounting system for sure. I need to confirm that there is enough room as the MS box is maybe twice as thick as the oem unit?

Replied.

On my 2002, there is a Mazda (OEM) keyless control module behind the glovebox. YMMV.

Sweet, please let me know how it works out for you. I'm ready to pull the trigger, hehe.

Thanks! I have a 2000 w/o the module. Currently my Hydra 2.5 ems resides behind the glovebox. If it'll fit under the driver's side dash that'd be cool.

Yep, someone posted that last photo on the FB page. Is Dimitris' the same size?

From memory, I think it's at least in the same ballpark if not the same size. I think it should fit based on that picture. And, zip ties = much easier than fabbing an integrating bracket

Ordered one myself. Looks like we are keeping Reverant plenty busy.

Hustler - I'm going to try to install at MSR this weekend. I can't drive the event but I thought I'd keep my friend who is going company and work on my car...

Good thing Dimitris had a diagram for me.
You could always cut and splice one at a time..
Would not take much longer than cutting them all at once.
