    I'm not saying it was the right way to do it, but it worked for me
    Soundengineer told me to run the ground all the way to the PCM. I will have to judge that for myself i guess.

    I don't know how you do it. I remove mine after I'm done tuning for the day. Otherwise that thing would be flopping around all over the place while I'm driving

    Shucks the last time I fired up my dads car without warming up that sensor it turned pitch black and I thought I had ruined it. It was slow to react for quite a while until it cleaned itself off with a few high gear high rpm blasts down the road.
    I've warmed it up ever since before I hit the key and it stays much cleaner now.
    yep, it lays in the passenger seat. That's one of the reasons I bought the LC-1. Get that and all those wires out of the car.
    The warming up deal could also be the difference between carb and fuel injection on start up. Little bit of difference there.

    Ya i bought a dual pillar for my fuel pressure and LC-1. i went with the autometer Colbalt series set-up. they sell for just over $200 which includes the gauge, wires, and sender unit. the only thing extra is the adaptor from the fuel rail to the sender unit. that was really hard to find. Metco motor sports has them for like $22 shipped. It sucks cuz i had just got the pillar installed with both gauges and they it died. I got the dual pillar and the fuel gauge from KYspeed they had the best price hands down, just ask mark or bobby and they will set you up!


    Oh and P.S. you suck! you stupid people with your running cars!!!!! makes me sick.......

    Well I guess that explains that. Does this mean you plan on driving the car more often this year??

    Oh, I did. It caused a lot of stress in my life too and definately contributed to my gf and I breaking up. But it's running again and I was cruisn around with the t-tops off all last weekend (it was 70 on sat and 65 on sunday) so that made me feel a whole lot better! I had no other means of transportation but I did manage to walk my ass down to the beer store every few nights since its only a block down the street
