So I got the boost gauge in and it works great. I decided now it's time to add the MAT sensor to my ECM conversion. So I run the wires properly and I stick one pin (power) into C11, and the other (ground) into D12 like it says on gnttype.org. I start up the car and notice it's idling kinda funny. Seems as tho something is a little off, but there were no codes. Oh, wait, yep, that damn light came on. Check it with the turbolink, and it wasn't the MAT sensor. Turns out to be code 42, EST. Turn the car off, undo everything, fire it back up and we're back to code 23 (or whatever) MAT sensor. Any thoughs on this?

FWIW, I though the car was running kinda crappy once everything was undone. Noticed I was pushing a mighty 10psi! Time to up that! I have to shorten the rod, right? Vaccum was at 18 in./hg. at idle if anyone cares, Daddy-O says that's good (it's a 30in/20psi gauge).
