I'm having difficulty envisioning what you are trying to do. The most economical thing in my mind is to find a cheap (and good) IDM on ebay and carry a spare you can swap in. I have 2 of them that I got for $50 each. Cheers!

I'm at 334k miles on original IDM, so it's not a wear part.

Yeah, its not a wear item, but they can go bad (electrical part failure or sometimes water intrusion). If all the valvecover wiring harness connection inspections and checks are good, sometimes the easiest thing to do is swap in a known good unit. Cheers!
