Tell us a little about your interest and history with cars and open source. There are no wrong answers, so feel no pressure!

heh... OMG what have I done... Where to start? Using open source software, I have participated in the complete reverse engineering of the software running on my Evolution car controller (ECU). Using this software I have complete control over every parameter, subroutine, every bit loaded inside the ROM. As I stated in my into, I autocross (race) the evo on the weekends, and I have somewhat "tweaked" the car for extra power. With the open source tools, I can retune the engine to the new hardware installed, and with proper tuning on a dyno I have achieved 360whp on 91 octane gas. I am getting ready to retune the engine to run on e85 which should put me somewhere around 400whp. That's with most of the emissions equipment installed and running...


I am a local car enthusiast, I drive a 2003 mitsubishi lancer evolution in the local autocross clubs through out the bay area, and hopefully nationally.
