So you about got that Motec about figured out. I been thinking about them a lot if i start making Exotrucks. I'd like to set it up so the body wiring is seperate from the engine wiring so that I can have a variety of power plants.

Thats basically what mine is.. "modular" I call it.

The PDM still ties into the engine.
But you can make "universal" with given set of outputs.

I was looking again though, the price tag on those is a killer. Started looking at regular fuse blocks again lol. Wifes got me making another one soon. A pink automatic!

It seems expensive.. (well.. it still is more expensive any way you look at it)
If you add all the components separately...
15x20A circuit breakers = $300 (klixton)
15x20A relays = $75
connectors = $50

Thats almost $500 right there.
Wiring up all those will add time.

But yes.. you'd need a keypad. (additional $500)

On a bright side.. you have CAN communication with your dash display.
If you going to provide a "universal" engine solution then you need a dash display.
Unless the owner installs his own engine and engine harness, cluster and misc switches like wipers.
Lots of things tie into the cluster.

If not then you'd need a standalone ECU.
This now limits your market to off-road vehicle in many states.
OBD laws ?

I'd think your production would need to be on pre-order basis.


Unless of course if you sell it as a turn-key solution.
Tuned and ready to go..

Then comes a reliability issue. You'd need to stand behind your product.
And them ex-Honda and now vaping Subaru owners are just standing by and ready to throw you under the bus any way they can.

So.. I've been playing around with knock sensor.. trying to get it "tuned"...
Since I cant hear it.. it was time to check them plugs...

Yeah.. I'll rub it in...
It took me about 10 minutes..
If I really rushed, half that time.

Decided to visit a local junk yard since there was a 07 impreza in the lot..
Scored glove box, air bag cover and license plate ligts




O yeah.. scored those two as well..
Some poor sucker left his tools.




Finally I could install the cig lighter and a usb charger.



Both light up..



As an added bonus I gained a passenger's foot well light.



... and that Nissan license plate light replaced the original Subaru one.
