Default Re: Running Pure Meth - Use UEGO as failsafe?

I'm leaning towards the AFR approach because it'l tell me if there's something wrong with the whole fuel system, not just the w/m system. But I might just try the flow switch approach. Thanks for the idea

I'm planning on using a Hobbs switch, 5v relay and use piggy for 2D afr/rpm signal - crude but should work at full boost

Other topic. Is the pump flow directly related to voltage? (ie. 8volts = 50% flow; 12volts = 100% flow) Or does the controller send pulses to control flow?
