And were off! Got my wifi and GPS set up, unfortunately I can't do live GPS updates, but I'll get something posted hopefully when we make our destination. Tuning Gunners car on the way, it needs some adjustment.

Steady raining right now...

First lessons of the trip.
Don't unplug the serial port from HPTuner while the other end is still plugged into OBD.
The fuse for the OBD is labeled with 4 seemingly random letters.
Relays are HOT! (and can cause blisters)

Last time I checked all my relays were cool except the rear ignition relay which was pretty hot. I haven't checked it since I moved all of my electronics off of the ignition and onto their own relay.

Steve'* rear fuse box cover almost scalded my hand, I think he had a few HOT relays. The one I pulled put some good blisters on my finger. He also has quite a bit of corrosion on the positive battery cable that keeps coming back after he cleans it.
