    Thanks

    Same with the starter solenoid?

    Honestly the thing I donít like is the wiring connector. Feels like it could be a problem if someone pulled a wire etc

    Basic Specs
    The V.2, Blue, and Basic outputs have the same *maximum current (10A) and*minimum wire cross-sections (1.5mm≤).
    Start outputs for the V.2, Blue, and Basic are 30A and 2.5mm≤.
    AUX outputs 20A
    Starter relay for solenoid switch up to 30A switching capacity
    Low and high beam control (up to 200W switching power) using just onepush button

    Jefferson can you upload another image of your wiring but in a larger file?

    This may be a new project any tips on things to watch out for?

    Did you end up installing the MXS Strada? Considering one and intrigued how it went.

    I'm going to try running the starter straight off the M Unit. I have a small/light starter, and the M Unit is designed to run a motorcycle starter directly. If it doesn't work the M Unit circuit breaker should protect everything.

    I attached a PDF that should give you better resolution. I've also updated it with new plans to improve the steering wheel controls. I couldn't get a wired solution to move smoothly and still have a removable wheel.

    Unfortunately I've been waiting on my engine builder for over 18 months (and am now taking them to court), so I haven't really tested beyond what I can do without the car running. Everything works, but I don't know if it'll get temperamental when all of the circuits are hot and under load.

    Yep, the MXS Strada is in. Unfortunately I'm still waiting on my engine (see post above) and so I haven't been able to test the integration between ECU and MXS. It looks really pretty when I power it up to the boot screen though.

    There is a VW-based dune buggy listed on BAT presently that has been re-wired using an M-Gadget Blu. Some nice pics of the interface can be seen in the BAT listing here.

    Would you mind sharing what gauge wire you used in the PDF? or a key/legend?
    Thank you in advance

    Curious how it has held up after the past year with it? Did you keep it? Also, do you have a high res copy of your wiring diagram?

    So Sorry, The site is in a terrible formate for me currently, only laoding text. I didn't see there was a second page of the thread that answered my questions! Ignore my requests, sorry to hear about the problems. I am buying one of these for my Datsun 240Z and will be installing it, I can give my own update here when I do if you're interested?

    Quick update for everyone. I think I'm about 2 car work weekends (so 1.5 calendar months) from firing the car. The M-Unit is wired in and controls everything as I intended. The new Performance Electronics ECU is wired up and the sensors are calibrated. The AIM MSX Strada dash is in and talking to the PE ECU. Just a little more wiring, and calibration of things like the fuel level sender (right now the AIM just tells me how many Ohms of fuel I have....). A lot of what I'm waiting on is the silly stuff like trial fitting alternator belts until I find one that fits and adding diodes so that the AIM dash can show turn signal lights. Oh, and I think I'm going to add Cartek steering wheel controls because I want to keep my dash completely clean. And I need to install pico injectors so that my fuel rail fits under my hood. And fab a mount for my MAP sensor and fuel pressure regulator. and... and... and. Maybe more than 2 weekends....
