So I am pretty sure that I am going with a MS3 Gold box, so the autotune function needs to be run by a computer so I integrated a Raspberry Pi 3 and a screen into my replacement center console plate. The Pi will run Tunerstudio, the prefered software for tuning the MS3 box. It will also run a nav app as well as perhaps some a/v. I integrated a GPS module that can also be used for 0-60, perhaps an accelerometer is in the future. And will also have an Echo Auto as well, just waiting for some usb bits.
A lot of work, it turned out ok. Kinda looks stock if you squint. The fan knob on the right is about 2mm lower as the hole is a little big for the fan controller potentiometer, I will scootch it up a bit and tighten it up.
Still waiting on the turbo back from Turbonetics, I am in no hurry. I also have the injectors being checked out, just to make sure that they are ok. I am keeping an eye peeled for Black Friday deals on the MS3 Gold box. The button where the fog light switch would normally go is for the power trunk release.
