I like the ITP fooler. It's pretty inexpencive and works perfectly. Just DO NOT MESS WITH THE ROTATOR!!!! I learned this the hard way!!!!

I agree, but I'm gonna have to disagree with ditty. I turned the dial (marked it first) until the light came on, and then backed it off one click. I was able to get one or two more clicks out of it. I don't know if it makes any difference, but it can't hurt

why don't I have any emoticon options when on my reply screen? anybody know

I’m a do-it-yourself kinda guy so I like the 4.7 volt Zener diode, costs less than $1 and takes less than hour to install and electrically does the exact same thing as a mechanical regulator in the map line.

Oh hell, just go real old school. Put a SchotchLok on the light green/black wire and ground it out.

That works as well but you have to ask yourself what is best. Not just what will work or is cheapest. Decision time......
