    Hey Guys,

    Newbie reporting in. I am currently on my last semester (hopefully) of graduate school in the US and about to head home to Bangkok Thailand. I am looking into getting a minor changed Prius Gen III + Enginer kit.

    I am learning a lot already from all these very useful threads!

    I think that is what the plan is... Probably because easier to get the Enginer mod while still in the states versus having it shipped over to Thailand and then try installing it there.

    Thanks for the warm welcome guys. I am currently studying Information System. As with the Enginer, they are the only PHEV kit available in Thailand, no one else seems to have an authorized dealer with warranty back home. I heard (rather read) alot of horror story on here, but I have about 2months to work out the bugs before I start working so I hope I can get a nice reliable system by then.
