Icon5 Open Loop / Close Loop indicator light???

I was thinking, does anyone know what the ecu pinout is that I need to tap in order to steal the WOT signal for the ranger? I'm sure its different for different ECU's. I was thinking of running a relay to it to trigger some LED's installed on my dash...

Green when I'm running partial throttle (closed loop tune)
Red when I'm running WOT (open loop tune)

Thought it might be a cool mod to have, and a useful one too!

I can tie the WOT signal to a wideband and trigger my laptop to log it and see if there is opportunity to get more power by modifying the AFR..

Just an idea...

You need something to tell you that you have the accelerator on the floor?

I was also thinking about wiring in some photoelectric glass, the kind that fogs over when you apply a current to it, and putting it over my plate - just for those nasty downtown chicago 'red light' cameras -

full throttle could actuate it.
