So I received my anylink 1080B the other day, but I was busy tinkering with my RC boat. I installed it last night/this morning:

First, I took it apart and got my money for my quarter pounder meal:
Image

Then I ran the microphone through the boost gauge hole and around under the dash to the center console, hiding the mic with the boost guage.
Image
Then I grabbed a 2A phone charger I had lying around from my abandoned nexus 7 in astra dash project and massacred the crap out of the cubby with a drill. Result:
Image

Solder in the plug connector I put on the charger:
Image

Install it all: and it works! (although this is the second go - the first time the crappy wind around soldering I did was making a patchy connection)
Image

All back together and my wife won't complain about crap being half finished or looking shoddy!
Image


Final mod: STICKER!!

For later:

Today I got sick of the pads and rotors swashing around the back of the car and had my mechanic put them on:
Image
DBA T2 rotors and intima SR pads - holy crap that is *SO* much better than stock. I'm much more confident the stopping power matches the going power now.

but then a package arrived!
Image

So when I picked up the car, I borrowed a 10mm socket and put it on the car!:
Image

it now makes boost quicker, although it has made my overboosting problem *worse*. (Stock was obviously leaking a bit) New exhaust and/or three port boost controller, here I come.

oh, and it makes lovely whoosh noises :)

Got all my LEDs from leo!
Image
Installed everything in the rear!
Image

Overnight (ok, not really) parts from japan(parts.com):
Image

Clear door courtesty lights, now I can see everything when getting in/out of the car.
Image

Got all the interior LEDs installed, massive difference. The only one I found was a problem was the vanity LEDs were too bright because they shine DIRECTLY INTO YOUR EYES.

I only got one front LED indicator in, super painful because I cut my wrist a few weeks ago during training at the CFA and it's still not quite healed. I still need to do the parkers, which fortunately were written up here: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=23350&p=335669

The new brakes are fantastic - the SR pads are rated from 50 degrees, but I only had a problem when I drove the car from cold in the middle of the night to the fire station (and it ended up being a false alarm anyway!). Fortunately the lib hates being cold also so I have a very sedate drive to the fire station.

Protip: Don't be an idiot like me, simply turn the vanity LEDs around and have them shine away from you. Indirect light, no more hurting eyeballs!

Got the inidicator and parkers in - I have huge hands like a gorilla, so I had to unbolt the airbox to get to the drivers side. They really didn't allow for bulb changing in the design of the lights/car.

Whats the plan with the WBO2 install?
I have some copper sheet for a heat sink and sparkplug non foulers if you need.

Do not run the sensor in the bung not hooked up, it will get damaged.

Also LMK if you need a hand with logging or reflashing a tune.

Where is the best place to have it? I was going to get an exhaust shop to put in a bung today/tomorrow if I can, then run it into the car via the gearbox hole and have the cable come out .. somewhere. even if you have to remove the gear surround to get it, not a big deal, because it's only the sensor/control unit, not a gauge. I was thinking it wouldn't be too tricky...

I've managed to work out the logging and flashing, I've got a nice log of my drive home yesterday .. not useful for anything really, but I just looked at the data and saw vaguely what was going on.

I think you've bought Kirby's wagon..

You might get a bit more info on it and it's tune etc from his posts.

Yeah I went through his posts, but there's not a lot of actual information - he didn't do any of the mods (except for HIDs), it came to him like that. the turbo is certainly replaced, I'll try to get out this weekend and get the markings off it so I can work out what it is.

you might just be able to make out some of the markings without removing the intercooler, if theres any markings on the turbine housing.

I had a look and it has a name plate type thing on the front.. that is devoid of any information or markings whatsoever.

I also went a bit crazy on ebay and grabbed a hyperflow TMIC:
Image

Then I bought an "Empire Performance" 3" exhaust for only $500 - seems ridiculously cheap, but they make a heap of parts and seem to do a decent job too!
Image

Sorting out Matt to tune me up, and I should net something over the magical 200kw mark, with a hopefully nice and not too loud sound - I may end up resonator or two put in I think.

Nice wagon and pick up on the TMIC and exhaust too :)
You're going to love the car that much more after Matt does what he does to it. Would be interesting to know what turbo its running if you could ever find out.
Keep us posted on the results.
