Sounds cool. My ms3pro is also going to be rewired for a BOB so would be good to closely follow your lead so share any more details as you can!

You got a beta harness which was made with what we had on-hand. We didn't have the real deal MS3-Pro wiring in yet. All production release MS3-Pro wiring harnesses have correct, MS3-Pro specific wiring.

I figured as much, and why i said yet. No issue, I just went by the handy dandy pinout cheat sheet on the underside of the unit.

I also referred to the stellar installation manual to figure out what to put my inputs and outputs on for launch/ac/boost/etc. Kudos to that documentation.

My harness is ready to install:

One thing I forgot to mention, I really like how you decided to go with "digital input 1-2-3" as oppossed to "launch in, datalog in, table switch in"

If those inputs only had one function and one only, sure it makes sense, but it gets confusing after a while to say, "I have VVT on nitrous 1, and a/c in on tableswitch, and tableswitching on datalog in..."

Right now I have A/C on digital in 1, clutch on digital in 2, VSS on digital in 3, knock on knock 1. So much easier. I still put my a/c out on a spare injector channel, just cause I'm used to it, but maybe if I were to do it again, I'd just use a spare high current out.

You're welcome.

We're also working with Phil to allow the user to "tag" I/O with custom names. So in TunerStudio you could label Digital In 1 "AC Input", so anywhere TunerStudio references the pin, it would be called "Digital 1 In AC Input" and so on.

Where's the bowdown smiley.

My one bugbear with MS is the freaking naming of pins and outputs etc. Thankfully I note that the devs are also standardising all that too!

The 2.5mm jack is the serial port connector on the beta harnesses. Regular production harnesses use a 9 pin plug that can be removed and then replaced with a waterproof cap.
