icp mod (potentiometer)

i was wondering if anybody else is toying with a potentiometer for the icp sensor i am and i have found that if i turn it up past about half way it kills the engine which is about 1800 oil psi @ idle i was just wondering if anybody has any input on this or maybe how to get around the engine light coming on when its turned up to far (if there is such a thing [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif[/img]) also does anybody know about running a series 40 detroit map sensor [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shrug.gif[/img] any input would be appreciated

Re: icp mod (potentiometer)

Welcome aboard!!

Based on my own experiences (not necessarily the average) you should tweak the pot while driving. Up too high, and I trip a CEL, usually half way through third gear. At idle with that same setting, I cant even tell the difference from stock. I have adjusted mine so that I do not trip the CEL at all, but the power is not nearly as noticable..

I think with this mod, all you need is a little, othewise you end up running into OTHER problems...
