    MP Flash switch setups

    Does anyone have examples of the switch setup they've built for their switch to change between calibrations? I've been kicking around the idea of using a smallish project box to house the switch and a plug in for the laptop to connect to. Then have the wiring for the mpflash and the flash cable permanently ran from the box to the SBEC, with the box mounted in the glove box. Im not on FB anymore to follow along with anything that may have been posted over there. Any ideas or leads on known good switches are appreciated!

    There are many different kinds of switch that are possible with MPFlash. Last year, I use a two switch in the classic binary config as per
    0,0 is position 1
    0,1 is position 2
    1,0 is position 3
    1,1 is position 4
    Here is Wayne's video explaining how to use it. This is by far the cheapest and easiest way to do what is needed. Perhaps understanding binary logic is the toughest part.
    A month ago I just assembled a push button that changes a digit from 0-9 on a switch, it looks great and shows you what bin number you are using. Another option is a rotary switch with also works great and you can tell with tune you are running. Both of these options are not cheap, you can make it yourself or purchase premade.

    Sorry I missed this entirely.
    As Miles said the twin toggle switches is by far the easiest to do yourself
    Also we have a push wheel switch a wire available should you choose that solution.
    We did look at a couple rotary switches, but the push wheel is a more period correct look.
