I am hoping to log AFRs, RPMs and boost and try to figure out some tuning issues.
I can't help with LM2 but FWIW I have LC-1, LMA-3 (aux box) and G5 AFR gauge installed and working fine. I mounted the LMA-3 under the RH seat. The LC-1 (for the O2 sensor) is in the LH side of engine bay. Let me know if you want pics.
LMA-3 has a MAP input port direct from the manifold so I didn't have to setup an electronic sensor, which is convenient.
I had a few problems getting it all working properly and eventually sent the LMA-3 back to Innovate for repairs, after which it was fine. I can log MAP, AFR, RPM, acceleration and side G. I have another input connected to speedo sensor but can't get it calibrated properly.
I have wiring diagram as fitted in my car if you want, but I expect LM2 may be different. Still, it may give you some ideas if you are starting from scratch.
