The MS-3 Pro comes with a straight harness in a pre-built waterproof case. You can buy the bare board but it's hardly worth it unless you need to use a stock ECU case for class regulations in SCCA or another sanctioning body.

The Breakout board is a piece offered by DIYAutoTune.com that you solder the leads from the MS-3 harness to mate the ECU to your factory wiring. I am adding an additional add on board to the BOB in order to run additional sensors in the future.

I managed to get my retrofit nearly complete. Unfortunately I lost a couple vital items that are needed before I can adjust them properly in the housing. One of them is the small black spring nut for the headlight bucket adjustment, the other is the headlight retaining spring for one of the FX-45 projects that I am having a hell of a time finding!

If anyone sees a Infiniti FX-35/45 in the junkyard grab me the headlight retaining spring!

FX-45 Projectors are huge! BMW Projectors fit much better in the factory bucket.



A lot had to be chopped from both the housing and bucket.

Top


Bottom


Light Pattern - Clear lenses, Osram 35w 6500k bulbs with 55w TRS Ballasts (Final ~5500K)


This is the clearance with the rear of the headlight housing. Not ideal but it will work with the right angle ballasts.


As far as we got with the missing parts. Shrouds are 'Ocular' units I found on ebay, can also be had from TRS.

Looks like I'll be able to use the JDM PS pump with the APS hard inlet. The bolt interferes slightly but I think that can be remedied easily with an angle grinder.

As far as the pan side of the oil return I think I have figured out how I'm going to attack the situation. My biggest concern is going to be heat from the exhaust manifold melting the twist-loc hose I'm going to be using. I do believe if I place my bung where the yellow arrow is in the picture below I will be fine. I am planning on ceramic coating + heat wrapping the exhaust manifold after I remove all the unnecessary bosses for the heat shield. I also think I will have to remove the metal from the motor mount that's indicated by the green arrow. Picture of the bung I will be using is below.

Will there be any issues with removing that sheet metal from the motor mount?

Has anyone else tried this routing method?

I was cutting off heat shield tabs before I sandblast and coat it. The battery died on my grinder so I was trying to break the rest of the tab off with a hammer. I knew it was a bad idea when I was doing it.

Did some minor porting to my exhaust manifold today. I'm going to be running a Grimmspeed crossover so I wanted a smoother transition between the crosspipe and the OEM manifold parts. I ended up taking about 3mm off of the OEM manifolds at the crosspipe connections.

I used a $15 Tool Shop rotary tool I got from Menards shortly after Christmas a couple years ago. For bits I used a $5ish bit set from Harbor Freight. I started to bellmouth the head side of the manifolds but my bits are pretty much shot (as can be expected) but it still feels good to make a little bit of progress.





Pictures show the first one I did. I understand it's not well done in any sort of way but I think it will be better than if I did nothing.

SICK sick sick build! no cornors cut and no rush! Thing is going to be HAM!!! I did notice you posted some images of some speedline rims, and I'm kinda curious what they run? I picked up a set locally here in Idaho for DIRT cheap, but all data I can find on them is post of "JDM" rims for over 1g......Can I ask what you paid for yours? I got mine chilling in the basement waiting for rubber, and mostly likely summer time.......

Thanks dude, I really appreciate your support. It's been a long way coming but things are finally starting to come together!

Speedlines are not very cheap, if you can find them. It's not unusual to see them for close to $1000 especially if they have rubber on them. The gold ones I have are even harder to find as they are magnesium rally wheels, unfortunately they don't have the proper hub bore for a Subaru! I had to do some mad scouring on the internet and overseas eBay to find mine. The hardest part is finding a set that someone is willing to ship to the US for reasonable. Google translate is your friend!
