Need a tester?

Do you guys need another tester for MPGuino? I have a 2001 Chevy Cavalier and would love to get involved in the project. My day job is an applications developer using mostly Java so I do have some programming experience. However, I do not know much about electronics though. I will need a lot of hand holding to do the wiring and be told exactly what wire goes where. But the source code and IDE part I can probably figure out.

At this point, would I be more of a hinderance with my n00b questions or would me setting this up help at all?

If so, is this what I need?

and I saw the other instructions on DCB's first post. I've got a friend who is an engineer at General Dynamics and should be able to help me with the electronics part of the setup. I just need to know exactly where to wire it into my car. Also, does someone have the injector values (lb usage per hour) for my vehicle (calling out JohnnyGrey)? Or know where I can find them?

Also, saw on nkcelectronics.com an SD memory card adapter for the Arduino. Maybe in version 2 or 3 we could add that as an option to store FE and other values?

Just a suggestion
