Re: CIS-E fuel modification @ WOT

Yup, it makes life a bit easier for those of us with CIS-E.  However,
if this mod works reasonably well, I am sure there will be many listers
who will want to adapt it to their 2.3L CIS-E III engine.  We might as
well try to figure this stuff out to cover as many N/A engines as

You would have to monitor RPM and kick in the higher resistance once you
have reached a higher RPM level, otherwise it wouldn't work.

OK.  Seems rather unethical to me to sell the chip if it really provides
no improvement, but... <shrug>

Ok, so are you assuming that the temp sensor/ECU maintains a linear (or
similar) relationship between resistance and increase in PA current, so
that the more resistance you add (up to a point) the greater the increase
in PA current?

Suppose a 15K resistor flags a fully-cold engine, so the ECU adds 80mA
of current to enrich the mixture.  You are hedging on the fact that
a 2K Ohm resistor (for example) may produce a 10mA increase in PA current.
It is certainly an interesting gamble, and sounds reasonable.  Is Bruce
going to measure the PA current increase when the relay switches?
