Was the DIY MS writeup helpful? My 99-00 wiring diagram should have been ***** on accurate.

Definitely, i had to figure out the mods a bit more for the 3.57 board but your diagrams were a huge help.

Also, i dont know if its in there but maybe put in setting the prime pulse for after 2 seconds to stop the initial backfire? I almost jumped outta the damn car the first time i turned the key on

I'm jealous...that you don't have water restrictions, and thus are allowed to wash your car

Ummmm, no. Last year we were in the middle of the worst drought in years. It hasn't gotten much better this year. While the reservoir is filling, we're still in drought conditions.

I don't begrudge the makers of the restrictions, I'm just peeved that we're in a drought to begin with.

Clean and tidy. I like seeing a nicely taken care of exterior that doesn't scream "Hey I'm fast!" or even "Hey, I could be a sleeper!" but just "Hey, I'm a nice clean car!"
