Just the first 5. The 2nd batch of 5 will ship sooner than the first 5 did.

ECUs will be sent in batches of 5 to CA to save on shipping, then each ECU will be mailed using USPS (hence the ridiculous shipping price of $35 from Greece).

First 5 units are built. I'm waiting for several components to arrive tomorrow, and the new expansion board are supposed to be delivered on Thursday. So if everything goes well, the first batch should ship on Monday.

This is hilarious. I was expecting UPS to show up with the package full of components, and still no show. So off I went to check my tracking number. It seems like the prankster has been pranked.

Wow, I've had a lot of things happen to shipments...but never a train derailment (well, not that I'm aware of anyway).

No huge hurry here...my car is on jackstands. It spends way too much time there lately...damn I hate working for a living.

Money and no time, no money and plenty of time...can't have both!

Tomorrow is tomorrow.



Having said that, I have received quite a big box full of resistors, capacitors, transistors...the works. About $1400 in value, so lots of them. 12 pounds to be exact.

Change of plans. I decided to run away to some exotic place with the GB money.

Not.

Instead I give you guys even more than I had hoped for:



No, it is not an MS3. But it is an MS3 case, meaning less cost for you guys to upgrade to an MS3 later on.

Interesting contents are interesting:



I just finished porting the code from my old expansion board to this new one, adding the multiplex feature to the MS2 code as well as the basic support for two switchable boost tables (yes, switchable boost tables).

I'm still struggling to get the knock control code inside the MS2. It is going to be very tight, the room available is literally measured in bytes.

I have all the components in hand right now (received 25 MS3 cases today and 20 MS2 boards and CPUs). I have 13 MS2 boards assembled (I assembled them in the dead time while waiting for the expansion boards to arrive).

I will give it a couple of days and see if I can make the knock control code in the MS2 in time. If not, I will assemble the units and ship them with knock control off, then when the code is ready you will be able to upgrade with a new firmware.

That is all.
