I have about 20k on the digital autometer without an issue. It does only read from 10 to 17...at wot below 5000 it stays at 10
If no one from the future comes back to stop you from doing it then how bad of a decision can it really be?

Thanks Gang.

The E8 code is "sensor timing", what ever the hell that is...

E9 is low voltage..I had that and put a relay in so the power was direct from the battery ( Thanks Rob)

E5....which is what it stayed at after doing it's insane scroll through everything.....is a short in the cable or, a short in the sensor.

This thing has killed a few O2 sensors over the years too, my leaded Avgas SLOWLY degrades the sensor, but, it always works, just slows down. I change the sensor every 50 hours of running time approx.

I don't feel like changing out stuff at this point, just to maintain a 13 year old device. I do need readability below 10. In reading SO MUCH STUFF on the internet, Innovate has some issues that do seem constant with their system(s). Even to phone them is rife with customer service issues so I am not going there.

I am going to look at the most basic AEM one I can get, started to do some reading last night but got a bit boggled by all the jargon, I may just phone them and say..."What is the most basic one that you would recommend for my application!?"

Need to get the daily into the garage so I can swap the winter wheels/tires onto it which gave me an excuse to take the 510 out for what will probably the last shake out run before winter.

It sure looks tiny next to the daily.

It looks so wee next to that white land yacht.

Even my G35 is way larger than the 510

Well last week I finally got one of my 510’s that is all apart attached to the rotisserie I bought earlier this year.

Yesterday I had my final drive of the year, over to Andy's and back for winter storage. Car sure did not like the cold weather without carb and manifold heat.

What a beautiful day once it warmed up, fall colours are fantastic now.

Changed oil and filter which is a process on my car. Did a good nut and bolt check, all was good, nothing was loose at all. Gave all my ball joints and half shaft universals a shot of grease. I did a lap on the oil pan bolts, all good there, no leaks.

I did find my left front wheel bearing a gnats eyebrow loose so I did tighten that up.

I also go around and do a "bang and bump" test, to see if I can isolate a vibration or rattle issue. I did find that two of my brake lines on the firewall were rubbing and hence a vibration resonance at 4,000 RPM. That will get fixed over the winter. My back panel where the rear seat was goes through a resonance too, so that will get a few small pieces of hose siliconed on the aluminum edges. It is always amazing how the slightest rattle or vibration can be so loud at times. Does not help in my car that everything is solid and no interior.

Tires are good for another season, did not do any real hard miles this season.

Only real issue to be addressed with be my wideband, whether I try to fix/diagnose my existing on or, get a new one. I'm leaning to the latter as I have had too many small issues with the Innovate over time.

And lastly, in the spring hope to get those good headlights in which will make the early starts that much safer on the back roads.
