So are you gonna go into doing assembly now? I am glad you have the patience to do that stuff.

Looks good, for me when I built mine, I'm really ---- about having everything look perfect (flush to the board, straight, etc) I will say, having a lead bending tool is a great help. Hope the install goes smooth!

On a sidenote, did you test yours with a stimulator?

if you look closely, it's setup for Hall/optical. Stock ecu will still be controlling idle so i didnt bother with the PWM idle valve mod.

I'm working on mine, soon to follow. Should have pics by tomorrow.

What else do you plan on having the stock ecu control? I think i just want to replace the stock ecu with the MS....eventually.

So is anyone else using the MegaTunix on a Ubuntu system? Just trying to figure if the Serial to usb doesn't do well on the MS side or the windows side.

I was refering more to the VR adjustment pots, which are only used with a VR trigger input. Thought maybe you had something unconventional planned.

Is that tape or heat shrink tubing on the red leads?

Karter post pics of yours so we can see what an "---- build" looks like!
