Any of them will work with ecoroute as long as it has Bluetooth. Mine is a 1490lmt. It's the cheapest large screen unit I could find.

Bought 1.5 exhaust pipe instead of copper. Each of the copper angles where $7 each. Gonna have to make a few water tight welds but it'll save me $200 in the rad relocation part.

Lmt stands for lifetime maps and traffic which is nice. There are a bunch on eBay under $150

Made the hood so it clears, ran most of the cooling pipes, then mock up the exhaust, once it cools I'll tear it out for finish welds.

plasmaed the hood into nearly 3 pieces, then cut about an inch out so the sides would have some slope, I should have cut more. I then welded in sheet metal sides that hook into the factory brace in the rear. It looked a lot better in my head, it was also a hell of a lot easier to do in my head lol, that metal is THIN.

Cooling pipe layout. Hot out, cool in, then aluminum cover over both. Also modded the rear into a triangulated 4 link.
