Please add me to the list for the second batch. I'd like an assembled unit with enclosure. Thanks!

Thanks all,

Tim
No problem at all. It will likely go to someone on the 2 nd round/ waiting list...I have to check Ash's list.

Anyone remember what post # Lewis' expenses are in? Need to get a check in the mail and been through 6 pgs w/out luck so far.

Edit: Found it, Post # 284 on pg 19 (I only went back to pg 20 first time)

Copying the post:
Hi everyone,
Here is the final financial accounting for the first 100 units.

The breakdown for 100 units is as follows:
6x9 shipping envelopes $12.00 (Staples)
6 3/4 return envelopes $7.50 (Staples)
DymoLabelwriter labels $26.00 (Staples)
Paper/Ink $25.00 (Staples)
Postage $175.00 (USPS First Class 6x9 small parcel)
PCB's $397.00 (Advanced Circuits)
Electronics $291.50 (DigiKey)
Enclosures/Screws $140.00 (Mouser)

Total: $1074
If anyone is interested, I can find a scanner and post invoices and receipts.

It was right around this time when my bride looked at me and asked how much I am adding for my design and fabrication time. I kept my head down and pretended to cough.

She then asked that people are going to send money before you send the units out, right? I kept my head down and muttered No, they're RL members, I trust them.

She then laughed and asked "tell me again why I married you and why I've stayed with you for 30 years?" Yup, head down. I know why I asked her to marry me, but I'll be damned if I can answer her on this one...

In summary, each unit cost $10.74 to fabricate and ship. I have tried to keep the unit cost as low as possible.

now that these have been shipping out, can anyone report success or failure? I made my own version of the circuit, verified that when SAI pump is running O2 sensors read zero, so it's assembled correctly, and drove for 20 or more drive cycles, SAI code did not clear, all it did was make the car idle poorly while the pump ran - so I'm wondering if there are model year sensitivities. For now I've disconnected the circuit while trying to see if there is another solution - of course I could clean the ports - done that 5 or 6 times so far

I did see some speculation that the test might have changed as model years advanced - my car is 97

Added: latest additions to 2nd Round List: 911Dave, waybrig, dgmattingly

Added (by Lewis): latest additions to 2nd Round List (via PM request): jgingera, maestromaestro, ptsheridan

This list for the first round of boards is now closed. I've started a Waiting/Back-up list below for those that missed this first run.

Quick reminders:
1) unless otherwise noted, it's assumed you are asking for an assembled unit.
2) enclosures are optional - feel free to update/ Post a reply/ PM and I'll update the list if you are looking for an enclosure.

Payment Info posted by Lewis (from post #147):
Once assembled, I will start sending PM's so folks can provide me their shipping addresses. Inside the package will be the unit, a hardcopy of the schematic, a hardcopy of the PCB layout and a return address envelope. When you get the unit and everything is OK, just use the envelope to send payment. I am a trusting person when it comes to RL members, so I have no problem sending out the units prior to receiving payment.

I have yet to see a software solution in person. There was a rennlister who posted a friend paid around $1000 to reprogram the ECU to ignore the fault. There is a company called TurboWerx saying for a year that they were coming out with a ECU add-on to ignore the error for $400. This circuit was $10 which is for "testing and educational only".

Interesting, isn't it, given that so many have been built.

I gues no news is good news. If it is installed we should not be getting the check engine light.

Not at all. I bought mine just to have around in case I ever get a CEL from a clogged port. With a little luck I'll never have to install it and find out if it works or not. I'll bet that at least 90% of us bought for the same reason. $10.74 for something that even has a chance of working is a no-brainer.
