This has been a long time wait. I may have to be a guinea pig around tax time. I also seen it on Facebook and they seemed to think it was real close to being available. I was thinking the price was going to be around 1K or that's the way I took it.

Very, Very nice!

The two options I'm curious about:

^^ I'm with mike. The boost controller (what type is it? Fuzzy Logic or something more simple that plays nicely with 1JZGTE and 2JZGTE OEM ecus?)

And the traction control system-- exactly how is that going to work with the old, antiquated factory TRAC system or for that matter, cars originally with no TRAC that will be added in? Is a TRAC ECU required for it and does this controller interact with the ABS system? If it does any of those things I'm curious about the programming.

Prior to this there was one aftermarket option for traction control and that's RaceLogic's ECU made in the UK.

Anyway... primarily it's a climate control system and that's good for me! I'm hoping it has an outside temp gauge.

Edit: I read a bit more on the designer's main site and apparently his first project was a boost controller of his own design. I'm interested to see what he does with this.

That's a pretty awesome product. Just personal preference but I think the user interface could use some tweaking. I would look at how some of the OEM manufactures used their designs and color choices. I liked the one out of the older GS430's. It would be neat if you could incorporate some additional GUI "skins", then I'd be very interested.

This is seriously awesome and solves my gauge issue. I really wanted to be able to keep an eye on things but I refused to put a bunch of gauges all over my car. This is absolutely perfect. I've scored mine already. I stalked the page until the link went live and got mine at the first 10 price.

Only get better when the boost control unit comes out and then the wideband.

Was not able to get through.... Waited for the "count down" but the "Buy Now" button did not reply and then the price jumped to the $349 and still did not respond, Looks like it is backed up so then the price will jump to $396 which is just too much when you can get rebuilt controllers for $120 or so.....

I guess I will go without.....

Patrick got back to me and suggested I use a different browser and I was finally able to place an order...

Now we all get to wait for delivery and see how all the installs go. Seems there will be software to down load onto a thumb drive and up loaded onto the unit....

Lookin forward to some detailed installed pics of the finished product. The original needed to be refined a bit, and this finished product looks like they put some more work into it.
I have a carPC, so I'm curious how/if I can get them to work together.
