Why is it that something apparently has to have a face in order to be worth caring about?
I'm vegan...well 90% of the time. Getting all pouty cus animals die isn't the only reason to be vegan. I do it for health reasons. I recently cut meat and dairy out and eat almost exclusively fresh fruits and vegies as well as brown rice and other whole foods and I constantly feel like I've had 4 cups of coffee, but without the jitters and all the other side effects of caffeine. Actually I don't need coffee every day like I used too. Oh I also started running in the morning which helps even more.

I think I screwed up the wiring on the LC1. I either have 10:1 or 20:1 afr, no in between. I'm going to cut out the switch and light and see what it does tomorrow.

I just swapped headers at 2am and calibrated before starting the car. I took apart the green car and looked at the wiring and copied it, and the LC1 in the green car works.

red from fuse box
blue to engine
white to engine
black to the switch
switch to gnd
light goes from blue to black wire

(the light will not illuminate)

I'm going to jack with it a little more tomorrow, then order an MTX-L.

Wrong.

Light goes to black wire (+) and gnd (-) directly. Also check the polarity of the LED is correct.

okay. please show me your calculations...

You told me you got 19.6 sqin by using the below:

Quote:
Pie times radius^2. Area.


So I did the math and get:

Quote:
2.5 D = 1.25 r

3.14 * 1.25^2 = 4.90625
Now where can you get 19.6 sq.in. by adding a "factor of 2"???

Using your formula, 4.90625 sq.in. is the product and pi and 1.5625 are the factors.

2.1 Indicator LED and Calibration button hookup:
The LED will communicate the LC-1’s status. To monitor LC-1 status, connect the red wire
(Anode) of the included LED to the calibration wire (black) of the LC-1 and connect the black wire
(Cathode) of the LED to the ground wire of the momentary switch. The grounds to both the
cathode side of the LED and the Push button should be connected with the Heater ground.


Whatever, I changed it so the red and black on the light are tied through the switch from the calibration wire to GND and now the light works...like a bauce.

We pulled into a lot and talked and hes actually pretty cool. He is not the one that put the body kit on it (though I'm not sure why he hasn't ripped it off yet). He at least knows what hes doing when it comes to tuning and wrenching.

what's worse is they eat animal substitutes in some sort of sadistic evil plot to still feel like they've killed an animal.







isn't that all just silly? commit to your goddam lifestyle and eat vegetables that look like vegetables!

I'm convinced all vegetarians secretly hate themselves.
