    Hooray! Best 5 minute install ever. Too bad it will be sitting under my ddmworks cover, but it's nice. Much heavier than stock too.

    The stereo is cool. Works as expected for the price. Can't seem to get the backup camera working yet. Got the stock on and an aftermarket plus what comes with this unit. Any tips would be cool.

    I got the oil cap from Bad News Racing, as well as the new msd pack. The stereo came from AliExpress. I have a ddmworks spark plug cover too. It's actually installed but covers the msd. I like that though. It's a sleeper. I also just got this about 10 minutes ago.

    What benefits does the msd give you overall vs stock?

    Also what parts did you need for the Android install and does it function with steering wheel controls?

    Most of these Tesla-style Android units come with a backup camera, wiring harness, canbus decoder, speaker (for the turn signals, etc), and it all works plug and play for the most part. I had mine installed in about 25 minutes. They are interesting devices, as I have learned. The steering wheel buttons worked right out of the box, same with onStar, and **** near everything else. Still gotta figure out the backup camera (I have not gotten around to working on it, as a previous stereo shop hacked up my harness), but I actually might do that today.

    I know you may want to use a bluetooth ELM device to use Torque.... don't bother, just get an OBDLink SX (The USB one) and route the cable under the dash to the USB port on the back. I works great. I got mine from Aliexpress. I recommend doing some reading here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/and...-units-general so that you can pick a proper one. Mine (just my luck), happens to be a very rare one, but it's still mostly the same as others. Joying is a brand that people swear by.

    As for the MSD, I got it just to get it. Lol. It's twice the weight (roughly), and with the increase in power from tuning my car with HP Tuners, I figured it wouldn't hurt (and it was only $100... That is hard to argue with. Especially because I plan on upgrading the turbo within the next month or so). I do notice that it's much smoother throughout the 2300-3500 RPM range, but that could also be because of tuning.
