I will be connecting mine directly to the ecu connections I think, as that way when you crank the car over, it won't cut the power and restart the warmup cycle.

I do have 1 question myself though.

I've bought a used LC-1 thats already been calibrated, so do I need to wire up the switch and led still ? The instructions weren't to clear on that.

The heater draws down quite a bit of current and should be fused. I'd not really recommend connecting to the ECU loom, plus the wires are piddly little things there and the area behind the radio is much easier to get to. The heater warm up cycle is really short, especially with the new beta firmware, it will make cuff all difference to any logging you do if you eliminate the warm up after cranking.

I fitted the switch to do the calibration with, but if I did it again I wouldn't bother as it's easier to do it with a laptop and you can see all is well. Fitting the LED gives a bit of a comfort factor, so I think thats worth it.

Ok no need for the switch then :D

Might just get another led and fit it next to the 1 I have fitted for the alternate map.

Red for the lambda and change the ecu to green or blue I guess (as the red one I fitted it a bit bright tbh, even though it's not in direct eyeline).
