Default My MS3x build questions... done and now with pics

O.K. build is finished - built the 2nd baro circuit, alternator control circuit, the alternator warning light and the EGT circuit. Everything is mounted and cuts in the housing are made... gonna post pics tomorrow.

As Frank mentioned in his "How-to" - the hex-standoffs for the MS3 daughtercard are ~2mm too long, so the USB port won't fit into its hole...

Apart from that I can only give the biggest kudos to Frank - as the Howto is perfect.

well... yes ...ahhhh - so if there is a FET on this spot you have to cut the standoff shorter...makes sense, as there also could be no FET in this spot.

Default FINISHED it Ladies...

So I got it all finished and set up...

Here are the pics:

Enp-plate with the not fitting USB connector due to the too long hex-standoffs


Side-view of the USB port


Proto area with the EGT and alternator control circuit


Alternator warning light build in the existing injector output after Franks description


Cut the standof - now it fits


Other endplate - I cut an endplate of an old soundcard to put my DB15 connector in


Closed the lower DB37 hole with the included blanking plug


All closed and done... (damn it's tight in there)


Other side with the 64pin ECU connector


Another angle - isn't it a beauty
