    I just did a semi-permanent install last night, so I'll have a new video up explaining how it works. Also, I'll do a full write-up once it's worked for a few days.

    Great video.

    I can imagine this being perfect controlling exhaust valves through the mode setting.

    @drdrewusaf Thank you for the more indepth explanation. I hope we can expand its usability, this is a great tool that could be used to control many features on the car.
    @Kale808 That is a great idea too. Is that a possibility @drdrewusaf?

    It's doable to expand, though w/o communicating on CAN bus, I'm not sure how limited this is.

    For EVC exhaust systems, this could control them through relays, rather than transistors.

    Again, RAM is an issue with this board. So adding the extra code will no doubt stop any progression of extra features for now. I have updated the code on the Pastebin to be more efficient for RAM, but we'd still need a few more bytes to add another feature.

    Quick update...

    New parts have arrived. I have a new mainboard with more RAM and IO. Should be able to control up to 6 things in the car now. I received some feedback to have it change auto-hold, and thought that someone out there might want it to change traction control. Those are options, but I haven't written the code yet.

    Also, a new daughter board that has all of the transistors on it. Originally, I used a large bread board. The daughter board is way more compact, allows for stacking with the other boards (for packaging in a case later), and it has a removable plug on it. That means you can simply unplug it for dealer visits.

    In the coming weeks, a 3D printed case should be on its way.

    Finally, if anyone has a contact in Korea that can get parts from a Korean parts manufacturer, that would be awesome. To make this thing plug and play, I need KM025B series connectors from the company Hirose. Those are the connectors that Kia used to build part (the part that is important to this) of the wiring harness.

    This is getting better and better. Keep us posted on the progress.

    Looking forward to the new features.
