I just installed a fuel-it stage 2 bucketed. My car is an 06 with ekpm2. How is the voltage regulation going? Will this help me retain some reliability?

Do you have 2 pumps?

No,

In the OP, it states

"Finally we should also be able to configure this in a "load balance" mode for those running a single pump but worried about burning out their factory EKP. In that implementation this will sit in parallel with the EKP splitting load to the pump so the EKP sees roughly the same current as a factory fuel pump. More testing required on this specific implementation but it seems promising"

I'm just fishing for an update, and weather or not this will help me retain some reliability.

I'd like to know about the load balancing too.

How much for the circuit board without the housing? I'm assuming the housing is what ramps up the cost.

Hey Terry any updates on this? Particularly on the load balancing mode? This would be great for the people with single pump upgrades that are seeing EKP issues, and don't want to move to a dual pump setup.

I don't think the bms solution is ready yet so you probably didn't miss out on anything if you are urgently in need of a solution.

Well, it's been 7 months. An update would be nice.

I agree I would like an update too, but COVID-19 probably interfered with testing.

What I am interested in is the load balancing application as it lets the ecu remain in control and it likely hasn't seen any development, otherwise personally I am not interested at all in the function of a power source that triggers based off of boost. There are wiring harnesses that do the same thing for cheaper, and of course the hobbs switches.

Have a couple more test units in stock... This project has been lagging due to the lock down and a huge spike in routine business but we're pretty happy with how it came out.

Looks good!

Hoping this progresses far enough for you to justify developing load splitting.

single stage 2 LPFP here, and get the EKP draining too much current codes.
I'd be glad to try it, if needed.

That would be so cool if you could help Terry test load balancing.

We have a handful out for dedicated 2nd pump use and want to get a few more out for that purpose before we start testing the load balancing. So if you have a 2nd or 3rd pump to run drop me a note and we can sell you one at a discount.
