  1. Separate for ethanol? Get a flex fuel sensor and 1200s or so. Will still be cheaper that 12. If you are getting a newer stand alone it should​ be able to handle flex fuel.

    USB-C.....are you nerdy enough to have a Nexus? Car sounds great by the way.
  3. Yeah i know. It wasn't suppose to be this long. But yeah I haven't wanted to deal with it yet. Definitely gonna take the covers off to do that. Just not sure how yet.
  4. Slow progress, but progress none the less. Bumper bar is mocked up. Just tacked together right now. Once it is fully welded I will clean it and paint it. Went to my grandparents house over the holiday. I had to repeatedly tell myself I don't need another project

    Still have this stuff.
  7. Demesio, I am kinda thinking the same thing. Things I hear; It takes too much to wire it in. I was making a whole new harness anyway. Throttle lags the pedal action. That can be tuned out. We can set 100% pedal is 80% throttle, or go full asshole mode where 20% pedal is 100% throttle, or any whatever we want. I don't trust electronic throttles. They seem to be holding up fine so far. What happens if the cable breaks on a hardwired throttle? I think that most of these complaints come from factory cars which have been purposefully made to be dumb like that. I see more pros than cons personally. We can add Traction control, WHICH CAN BE TURNED ON AND OFF. We can add in a valet mode so that the car will never see more that XX% throttle. Safety parameters can be set so that if the ECU sees that something is wrong it can force the car into true limp mode not allowing more that XX% throttle. If the firmware comes out as claimed I will also be able to have cruise control. Huck, I have never driven a car with electric steering so I can't really have an opinion on it. Gordo, you know you would love a self-driving car. More chances to sleep.
  8. Tried going bolt on adapter. Wasn't going to work. Why is DBW such a stupid fucking idea anyway?
  9. Small update. My car is finally in the shop so hopefully we will be getting stuff done a little quicker. Once up on the lift we didn't like where the drive train was sitting, too far forward. So dropped the trans, clearancing the tunnel more, and sliding everything back some. Pulled the intake manifold to weld on an adapter plate for the 350Z DBW throttle body.
