So my father and I, who is a mod on this form (Jimsmith or some creative user name like that) have come up with an idea to fool the system for the time being. I did a little calculation and it turns out that if I put at 3.704Kohm resistor in series with the pot we could pull the output down from 8v to 5v. I am capable of making a 3.86kohm resistor which would make my engine run a little lean for the time being, which I am ok with (I rarely run it WOT anyway).

This would be done already, but I just wanted to make sure that the correct reading from the pot is, in fact, 5v.

Thanks,
Jim
