Hi Dave, I'm configuring a dash and would like extra channels in addition to the 6 CAN ID channels available in the CAN 2 module i'm currently using to the MAX, I'm wondering if I can physically connect bus 1 & 2  together to transmit an additional 6 Channels on separate ID's, I presume the ECU has internal 120 ohm resistors on each BUS but the dash also has one internally so not sure how this would work.

It should work, I have done this with an extreme before on a customers car when i ran out of ID channels.  You are limited to 10 streams overall though IIRC, so you still won't get 12.

HTH,

If you can turn off the 120 ohm resistor in the dash (if it's an AiM you can) then it will work if you make the ecu each end of the bus.
