Being a lazy, cheap ecomodder, and living in Florida where I don't have the issue of needing to heat my water temps up, I have what may be a stupid question:

That seemed like a lot of work and expense (and it'll look like the center console got hit with buckshot if you ever remove the gadgets to try to sell the car) - is there no way to just fake a signal to the sensor to make it think the water temp is at 160 degrees so it will go into lean burn even before the car warms up?
