Today I am thinking of getting one of Innovative Motorsports LM-2 tuning devices. My engine is a 2110 with dual weber 44 IDF carbs.
I think I have them significantly screwed up to justify the purchase.
Any tips or advice on this potential purchase?

Moved to Tennessee, installed a new soft top, and installed light switches and gauges. Actually did all that over the last eight months.

This is as good a place as any so I will ask my question.

What is the approximate cost of a complete restoration for a 1974 VW Thing?
This is to include new floors (Thing Shop original Mexico).
Repair all dents and scrapes 1 bad crash in rt rear corner.
I am plan on using a fairly local company (I am in Albuquerque, NM) located 35 miles from Albuquerque, NM in Los Lunas, NM.
Complete paint job inside and out.
The name of the company is Color Works.

The jobs completed by them is pretty fantastic.

Installed new ball joint boots . Bought a ball joint press from Harbor Freight as I did not have one anymore. Cost $14.95. Took just under 2 hours and came out perfect. I found them broken after we got back from Yellowstone last year and just got around it today. Joints are still very tight so no need to replace. We are off to Utah in 2 weeks to see the Mighty 5 parks and did not want to get all that sand in them. Got the Boots from Mike at thingparts.com very nice looking boots.

Performed the annual cleaning and declared it the daily driver until it starts raining again.
