I'm in the process of setting up a AIM MXS system in my 99 build. I believe that I have all the sensors figured out except how to capture data from the throttle position sensor.  What is normally done. Do you tap into the existing TPS on the car or add a AIM sensor like a string pot or Potentiometer? Any help would be great

Tap into the TPS lines. Becareful when referring to the FSM on determining the wire colors and/or Pin order. I noted dissimilar orders indicated in a couple places in the manual when I was verifying & testing prior to my install last winter.

I think I figured out the TPS wires. What about water temp do you tap into the ECU water temp sensor or add a independant water temp sensor at the back of the head?

why?

jim means add a sensor for water temp....i think..... as the NA and NB obdII info refresh rate is so slow, it would never work for datalogging.  tps reading on 1.8's at the sensor or wire at eco is a breeze
