Very impressive. I can't even imagine hiw many hours you have into the project. I pretty much gave up on the idea of upgrading mine!
I don't think I want to calculate the hours spent on this. lol That being said, many know a first run always takes an exponential amount of time to sort it all out. But, now I know what to do and how to do it for future projects. If you're interested in converting yours, I can lay it all out for you IF you have the ability to do so. Again, there's a lot of relocating board components, some drilling and tapping, and you'll need to modify the heatsink and fabricate a mounting bracket for the smoke unit. The only shell modification was snapping off/removing the threaded pedestal bosses for the factory speaker (mounted under the hood vents). The new speaker was relocated to the fuel tank. I enlarged the factory dip-switch opening to accept a 40x28mm 2 watt speaker using my Dremel. You can skip this step and install a round speaker but you may lose sound quality. All the required parts were ordered from Digi-Key. Lemme know.
