Any thoughts, pro’s, con’s on AutoBlip controller installation location would be appreciated.
I see most mount them in the rear compartment of the console or the cup holder area. I went with the Xineering blip module mounted in the glove box instead of the AutoBlip. I put a rocker switch on the side of the console for an on/off switch.

Thanks. I’ll have to check out the Xineering module and compare them.

Just curious why you went with Xineering. If this is a rehash of an often-discussed topic on this forum, just let me know.

The Xineering install does look cleaner and easier.

It is more adjustable than the AutoBlip, but you have to plug it into a laptop to configure, so you can't adjust it on the fly. I thought set it and forget it would be better for me. I didn't want something that I would try and fiddle with when driving.
 
Hey buddy! How's it going?!? Here's where mine went. Did a tad of micro trimming on the plastic console cover so the wire would not be pinched in any way. I like the ability to adjust because have been working on changing when and how I downshift. Had to turn it down a bit in-between sessions a couple weeks ago.

I also went with the Xineering module after a few failed attemps with the Blip. The Xineering module is installed in the glove box with a single led toggle on lower right side of my dash. Really clean and once I got it adjusted, left it alone. Works fine.

Xineering here. Installed a toggle and led light next to the steering wheel.
Downside is you need a PC or android to adjust. My first time at the track with it I had neither and because the settings were not correct, I turned it off for the day.

The lower dash was a bit of a reach for me when I am harnessed in, so I mounted a switch on the side of the console behind the parking brake handle. It is easily reached and the parking brake lever keeps you from hitting it by accident.

KazarS197: Between battling stripped studs and kids’ high school graduations, vacations and college move-ins, I finally made it to a TNiA at Pitt Race 2 days ago. Thanks for all of your advice on the cold / hot tire pressures. They were pretty much spot on!
