One concern I have with a switch going to the controller is exposing the control voltages to the car's environment. Maybe I could add a cheap optocoupler like the FOD817, and your external switch could switch a 12v or whatever signal, which will toggle a economy/performance port. I'll add that. It will be an extra $0.28 though. haha.
