last I checked you could not adjust the AEM's analog out. if that's still the case get the Innovate

Somes Qs that might be helpful to others:

Is it easy to add other stuff later, can Knocksense and the EBC be added without opening up the MS box? Can the stock ECU be removed altogether at some point?

I can mod the board for both. so no, you wouldnt have to open it up. The added cost is mostly the solenoid.

yes, the stock ecu could be removed. Just need the idle mod and fan controls, should be simple enough.

The idle mod will control the air idle valve on the TB. And the fans just get grounded, so bring the ground wire the thermoswitch grounds to the MS instead and walla.

if it's a 1.6, the MS doesn't even need to control fans.

you will have to provision for a/c control too if you remove the ecu

Just a question from a MS noob... What is the difference between this DIY pack youre offering and the PnP for the 90-93???

I guess I have to more some of the wires in the conector anyway since I have this European version that uses a bit different ECU... I think so because the bous running link on this engine have to mod the conector...

good to know. havent looked at the diagrams for it yet.

I was planning on having people run the ground line to the MS instead of the thermoswitch. Then you can at least pick the temp you want to turn them on at. But if that's the case the 207 switch works fine.

yeah, that's a good point. I would suggest to those who want MS to run fan control the same way I am: cooling fan ground switched by MS and a/c side fan switched by thermoswitch via a dpst relay. this way I can set the temp the cooling fan turns on at, and the passenger side fan turns on with EITHER the a/c or at 207. Applies to 1.6 only.

WELL [email protected][email protected]@@!!

Just kidding, what kind of price are you looking at for that tidbit? I got a quote from a dealer for $249 shipped for the Innovate LC-1 with the DB gauge.

Benefit is cost. Plus the JAW comes with a nifty display for much cheaper then an LC-1 with gauge.

All a wideband does is just interpolate voltages, this one has 2 outputs and onboard logging as well.

Don't get me wrong, the LC-1 is a SOLID unit, works exceptionally well in many applications.

A good analogy would be the JAW is more like a megasquirt and the LC-1 an AEM EMS.
