    It has finally arrived, had to wait on the TPS sensor but my mappable ignition is finally here

    All neatly packaged so it felt like Xmas all over again

    Everything appears to be here so the first thing i did was to wire up the TPS sensor, 3 wires all clearly labeled and instructions are included. I crimped, soldered and heatshrunk the wires to make triple sure. I dont think they will get pulled off much but it'll help to keep the connection good for years to come

    The only slight hiccup in my plan is the dizzie connector. Its not the ENG3 that aldon have sent me. Looks an easy mistake to make. Does anybody know where i can get a NEW one of these. My old one has more connections than the london tube system

    Ive also tried the software side of the system. All you have to do is plug the supplied stick into your laptop and open the program! So easy even i can manage it

    For me personally,

    ease of set up
    no fabrication reqd (ie trigger wheel and sensor mounts etc)
    no trigger wheel to get bashed (its on a rally car)

    Sorry about the lack of updates but work has been a bit hectic!

    I've got all the required plugs now to make a loom for this set up.

    I'm hoping i've worked out the required wiring but ive mocked it up before I install it (side by side with the original ignition)
