you will notice that when you turn the key to ON the FP runs for a second., not sure if that was by design or just a fluke due to the delay of the relays. this may help in starting since the fp does not run in the START mode like the 911.
(I do not know if the AFM is open enough when starting to run the pumps either, I don't think it is).

just something to think about.

again, you put a coil in parallel with the sending unit it will change the reading on the oil gauge. you need something with a very hi resistance in parallel with the sending unit to reduce the change in reading.
