When the ignition is 'on', is that the first position or second? i.e. one push of the button, or two pushes (foot off of the brake)?

OK. So when all the lights on the instrument cluster are lit up like an Xmas tree. Thanks. Mine gets here on Thursday when my sister arrives from the USA. Weather is warming up after today to near zero C (32F) so I'll probably get a chance to do this before the weekend, depending on JColley's schedule (don't want to mess with his Xmas after all).

Coming soon, but based on feedback from a couple it rolled out to, I'm making a few changes to the VANOS and SMG modifications.

Oh yeah....forgot to ask...


Who want reduced Oil Change intervals? 5K miles? 7k miles? 3k miles?


I wish I could program in a CBS counter for rod bearing service...

Can you code a bit more aggressive startup when the car is already warm? Kind of like a Ferrari or Lambo when you first hit the start button and it revs up to around 3k very briefly and then settles down...Maybe lame but I love it...lol

Another thing I think is kind of neat with a Lambo for example, is hearing the starter whir for a few seconds before the car fires. Not sure if that is controlled by the tune.

Awesome. Thanks for the update.

I personally would like to see 5k intervals. 3k doesn't seem warranted for everyday daily drivers, non track cars.

Anyway to "delete" ELV counter? I already had to reset once (~42k miles). I don't understand the purpose of this feature.

Haha, indeed. I'll take one, sure.

I am just curious what controls the startup sequence and sound of an engine. I am guessing the Lambos are probably using a gear reduction starter or something that spins a lot faster. Come to think of it the old BMW 850 has a pretty cool startup sound as well.

Oh well, lol....
