The idea is that I want to have a open source computer on my car so I can have complete control over what my vehicle does. I can do this with my personal computer at home, and my phone. So it would make sense that I would be able to do the same with my car! I will be building it from all the pieces and soldering it myself because I am gaining more experience soldering. I would like to get someone to 3D print a speeduino box for the board to sit in and I am probably going to mount it on the outside of my glove compartment for cool looks
I have been doing a lot of research over the last couple of months and I really think that I can do this with ease considering I have been working with electronics, open source software, and microprocessors experience. I have looked around at this community and I have to say it's pretty damn impressive in regards to how enthusiastic and motivated everyone is to making a cheaper alternative to overly expensive hacked ways to tune a car, instead of just making it tunable natively.
Anyway, as I am waiting on the parts, I was wondering if anyone can give me pointers as to how about I go setting this up in my vehicle. I know a couple of things already such as adjusting the timing angle, reading the crank gear tooth, and mounting the whole thing to the cars harness, but I don't know if there are any potholes in the way as no one has done this specific engine yet. So if anyone has any experiences on what they did with their engine it would be highly appreciated!
Thanks so much for reading my wall of text!!
