    I have an install on a HKS TEMS to do so SUBSCRIBED to this great thread. Only way I know to subscribe is to post. Sorry for bringing this post back to life.

    Has anyone ever changed the LEDs in the controller? Red lights make me nervous lol, and blue goes with the rest of my dash a lot better

    Also - has anybody ever had the stencils on the buttons redone?

    Just read this. Does this mean that my TEMS won't work with a soarer 1JZ swap?

    Never had to do this, and I've not heard anyone else having to do it. Would be interesting to see what you come up with.

    It's possible. As I said in my earlier post, I don't know what the effect would be after swapping the engine, but I would suspect it won't AUTOMATICALLY switch over based on the missing sensors.

    It SHOULD still be selectable, something I get to test out when I finish my 2JZ swap. I'll let everyone know about that later on.

    So I'll be able to switch between modes, but if I start getting on it or try coming to a sudden stop, I'm in for whatever mode is selected without it bumping up to stiff? Best guess?

    I was looking at mine tonight and it looks like i would have to melt the hot glue that holds the circuit board and buttons into the plastic housing, then it's a matter of finding new blue LEDs that work and soldering them in ( I hate electrical work :/) I think it would be worth it to even leave the sport mode one red lol

    Exactly. It should still be selectable, you'd just lose the automatic functions when the car pitches and yaws.

    Since this has become a really-expensive item, you're thinking of doing something I wouldn't even attempt on a good day. Best of luck and post up the results!

    EDIT: I have removed my "ill-conceived" post, as OP's first couple posts very succinctly explain the system and little (or no) value was added.

    That could VERY WELL be true, as you did experience it. I'm sure the ECU does some sort of calculation that would adjust for the speed differences, but it also uses the sensors for G-forces that are applied to the car when it does a maneuver at speed.

    Great point!

    EDIT: Drake was gracious with his reply to my previous post, but again, I added little to his exceptional first couple posts and have removed an additional post I made here.

    Its all in the first post of this thread....

    The four sensors which assist in the various settings are:

    1: Throttle Position Sensor (TPS): for anti-squat
    2: Brake sensor: for anti-dive (nose-forward during hard braking)
    3: Steering-angle sensor: for anti-roll (side-to-side)
    4: Speed sensor: for anti-squat and “Firm” setting
