The MAC11 powers it by a relay too.  I'll take another look at the code.

Altitude compensation?

Thanks.  What's the compression ratio?  From ScottM's post later, it sounds
like your car is very similar to his...

As for computers, so far, it seems the MAC12 is a slightly stripped down MAC11
(no O2 sensor input or charcoal canister output) and the MAC14 which
Scott has is the dual knock sensor evolution of the MAC11.
