Default Why DIY Autotune rocks, and USPS BLOWS.

So I ordered some stuff from DIY Autotune last Friday, to be send out priority mail. I received it today, 8 days later. I contacted DIY Autotune yesterday before I got my package and they were doing everything in their power to find out where my stuff was. When it arrived today it looked like truck ran over it, but I opened the package and all my stuff was wrapped in bubble wrap, in excellent condition. Thanks DIY Autotune!

BTW, my order consisted of a few resistors, a GM IAT w/ piggy, and an MS-II daughter card. I am jumping on the AbeFM Adapter board bandwagon. I have the board, and my MS-1 was removed in favor of the MS-II. The MS is complete, as are the mods, but I am waiting to find the best solution for the Adapter Board's case.

One option would be to get a larger version of the standard MS case and mount it all in one box: Hammond Mfg. - Extruded Aluminum (Metal End Panels) - 1455 Series Enclosures

I actually like the idea of keeping them seperate. How I am going to mount mine is like this: I want to buy or build an enclosure of some sort for the adapter board. The stock ECU stays right where it is. The adapter board gets plugged in, and I run an extension cable to my MS which is bolted up under my dash. The stock ECU stays, cause if I have some kind of MS related issue where the car won't start or run, I simply swap the plugs and turn the key.

Check out the installation post and a more recent post on the original adapter board thread. I posted case options for installing them separately, and theres pics of it on the original post.
