    I'm sorting out the details of the waterproof and accessible enclosure. It isn't an off-the-shelf part, there are modifications. I'm working out something that's reasonable to manufacture.

    JJ and I thought this was going to be a fun little thread about how fuel injection works and so on. Neither of us were expecting the response. If I could get these ready for holiday gift giving you know I would!

    I'm on track to get a thread started in Vendors by this time next week or sooner. In there will be the release dates and pricing.

    History shows that small teams or individuals develop superior code. You want something fcuked up, let a committee design it.

    Nope, couldn't tell just by looking - obviously not a mechanical engineer, or bike mechanic. :doh

    As for the rest of my post I wasn't trying to criticize your abilities, or knock small teams in general - sorry if it came across that way. Simple fact is no one writes 100% flawless code 100% of the time and as good as small teams can be at developing great stuff, the more complicated a project is, the more chance for errors. And that's where testing and validation by additional people, independent of the developer(s) is a good thing. That's a far cry from designing by committee.

    That aside, if what you're developing is inherently safe because it can't interfere with the basic functioning of the ECU, then I'm happy to hear you explain more about that. Of course if you feel that'll disclose too much, I can respect that too.

    Peace.

    Obviously messers Poolside & al have more than an inkling about fuelinjection:lol3
    Boosterplugs and other sundry gear gets sold by the ton and everyone smiles no major questions asked.
    They're just going to rub the ECU the right way, not make a new one.
    Maybe Steve J. has a spot for an ECU manipulator app:D
    just SMS your bike and be sure to keep that frontwheel on the ground!

    Pretty sure Boosterplug is a static/non-adjustable version of product #1 Poolside is building (I think this has been discussed thorughout the thread).

    Poolside's "boosterplug" will be adjustable and coordinate with 3 additional products.

    That is patently false. Anecdotes do not a paradigm make.

    It's not really an anecdote in the software industry. Enough people believed that large groups and the bureaucracy the went with them caused software projects to fail that the agile development manifesto and the Agile Alliance were formed in the spring of 2001. I see this project following the agile development model in a lot of ways.

    the correct approach needs to reflect the size/scope of the project. is the bmw project more like the manhatten project, the next generation of windows, or ?!?

    i am very excited to get the hardware, and want to support like typical management... let's throw more people at it! :rofl:rofl:rofl

    Quite so. Very interesting to watch how agile type techniques are followed intuitively, without any decision being made to follow that development philosophy.

    Great manifestation of agile.
