VX: Scan gauge and SIL

Hey Guys,

I was just wondering if any of you with a VX in a scan gauge has seen any correlation to the gauge and the shift idicator light (SIL).

What I mean is, has anyone compared the SIL to scan gauge readings. I'm wondering if the engine is in lean burn when the SIL is off.

Larry J --I have instant feedback in my vx (MPGuino and a leanburn monitor) and I find it is much more important to remain in leanburn than to obey the SIL and cause the engine to drop out of leanburn . Besides the SIL does not work in 5th gear. For max FE just stay in leanburn as much as possible in the tallest gear possible.
