Default MS3 - Digital CAN-BUS wideband input

I've finally got around to installing the MS3 that Dimitris @ MSLabs built for my daily - it's got one of his full-fat MS3's including the digital wideband to CAN converter.

Combined with the Innovate LC-2 it's genuinely spot on.

With some of the more expensive stuff I tune they run pretty impressive wideband strategy's with different trim PID controls for high & low load etc - meaning that on EVERY car I run closed loop fuel all the time [correctly tuned of course] but I've never felt that the analog input and MS combo was strong enough for this to work.

Until now.

The response is rapid and solid, and due to Dimitris awesome code writing the MS will stop the CL trims should the sensor die etc. there's no ground level to worry about and makes the install/tune stress free.

Go buy one.
Be happy.

Do you have a test unit? AFAIK those full fat MS3s are not available up to now... I am waiting for mine like 2 years now.... ;-)

Full fat is just a basic MS3 with every option like:
Quad EGT via CANBUS
VSS reference for traction/launch
Digital wideband via CAN
Baro pressure reference

etc...

Ah, ok. I thought you might have an Enhanced MS3 already...

Afraid not - tbh I can't really see there being much stuff I'd need more over this, it's not like I'm trying to run the space shuttle, and if I wanted more I/O's he offers an I/O expander..

Sensor error checking is a standard MS3 feature.

Yessir. Credit would be to James Murray, as he does all the dev work.

You're basic ms3 does have those options. You just need to hook them up. Maybe not the EGT. But you can get his external module to do that.
