v1.0 - v1.1 / Re: My life, My coding

I shipped my calves this weekend.. of course another #$%## injector piled up 40 miles into the trip and made the rest of it a bit of a misery... I kinda fixed it by just tromping on it.. had a moron in front of me dawdling along.. until there was a passing lane of course.. then he did like 70mph... No problem, bad injector, still have a weak cylinder, still did 85mph with a load of calves in the trailer, and one heck of a smoke cloud behind me... Mileage sure sucked.. only made about 300 miles on a full tank.. EGT's tended to be higher, and on some long hills there was some popping sound in the exhaust.. no doubt from a dribbling injector making some late fire.. I'll do another compression check on the truck when I put some old 5x12's I have into it and see how it runs.

Ya but all you'll know is the motor is good, not really the canbus side /shrug
true indeed..
I don't know what the most common failure modes are on these.. I did see someone with a fried board, (was that Me23242?) that one certainly wouldn't move at all.

Installation / Thinking about going this route, need more info

So what's install like? No hardware wise but software wise? What pins does it use with the Arduino? Can I use a screen with this? Can I use an Arduino mega? Is the little black box even available for purchase still?

I run the 6.7 manifold on my 12V as well.. drops the turbo way down which is a mixed blessing but it works

I think they move a little when they initially power up don't they?  Perhaps if you had the hot side off and tried to move the vanes while it's power vs unpowered you'd be able to tell that it's pushing back or not.. that's about all you can do.

I had to put an intermediate board between the lil'bb and the Mega because you need to reroute some pins, like for SPI and frequencymeasure...
