Yeah, what I was implying in my reply is too try hook up to speed signal from the dash (I have a mechanical Speedo) and see if that changes how the engine behaves since apparently other Toyota ECUs use this for those things

Yeah. In the swap I'm working on I've connected the SPD pin to the signal from the dash. Just how the MR2 is setup. It's an electronic speedo but still has the signal coming from the dash rather than direct from the gearbox.

Yeah I think it provides more pulses by about 30% IIRC, but I doubt it makes a difference
