I was gonna do that this weekend

All done. Cayman GTS wired up just like GT3. Now if there is a Laguna Seca track date around the corner... He he!

Nice work! Looking forward to hearing how it works for you. Make sure to do a couple careful debug laps to make sure it's actually switching at Turn 5 before you flog it and get meatballed on accident.

Well... I built a bunch (4) for a few friends locally. Wow... it took a lot of time and patience. Now I know why Mech33 isn't willing to build anymore. I don't think I will neither. I had some bad luck on the way like amazon sending me the wrong board and such.

I will say for anyone trying this make sure you get a crimper...

It will make your life so much easier so you don't have to solder every connection which is very time consuming

Wow you're really cranking those things out! Nicely done for your friends. I made 3 total and that was enough...

Just ordered the parts. Will be an evening project for the week my family is away. Thanks a ton for detailed instructions. By the way, any leads on extra-cheap turn-away pipe to get the sound all the way under 90dB?

It did not go too far. With two very small children at home and 100+ of slightly bigger ones in the office... Suffice to say, I managed to wash half of my car last weekend, and now I'm driving it like that. I hope to get to it in 2-3 weeks.

I'm not sure how to get the wires through the firewall. Any suggestions?

Aleks ran the wires through the firewall for me. But for the first two test track days, I just had the wires poke through the rear deck lid and taped along the rear windshield and back down into the door jam.

Joe - did you run yours through the firewall?

Not yet, but I know how to. There is an easy access point just under a plastic trip at the level of the arms for the lid hinge. I can take pics next weekend. You access on the inside by pulling the trim just adjacent to the bottom edge of the rear window

Can it be used to pull through the mic cable as well? Would be good not to bother with cables and tape for mic.
