    I think he knows how to do it. He wants to know which way is better.

    You always want a wideband powered up when exhaust is flowing and not powered up when the motor is dead. Powering the wideband off the same power line that that controls the fuel pump normally work out best.

    I run a relay off of the purple wire. All the gauges power up off the relay.

    I put a lighted toggle switch in... In the plastic piece around the steering colum... It looks sweet and lights up when I turn it on... (sorry no pictures though) I had a hard time finding the "purple" wire to use on my 09 RXP-X... (there were a few purple wires and none seemed to be live...) Besides the switch just is cool... My 7 year old says "dad, flip the switch so we go faster..."

    The purple wire is power on when lanyard is plugged in. You can use the purple wire off the service port. I like this as it powers the relay when lanyard plugged in.

    I thought the sensor needed to be heated up for a few seconds before the engine was fired up.
