So is there no way to get air or oil temp on an 07 Elise? I know the car has no prevision but I thought the actual ECU used these temps for many reasons. Either way the dials do not populate.

I'm pretty sure you have to hook up your own sensors to get oil temp readings

So that implies the ECU does not use it?

There's no stock oil temperature sensor whatsoever, and oil pressure is just a simple on/off switch and not a real pressure sensor.

That I can believe for oil but I though Air temp was instrumental for calculating stoich( stoichiometric mixture ).

It's instrumental for metering airflow; the MAF definitely has a temp sensor in it. I seem to recall mine ('06) just working with the stock Torque Pro "Intake Air Temperature" gauge, but I might be wrong.

- Right this is my point. So I'm wondering why Torque can not get a reading for air temp? Unless there is a intake air temp gauge? I will check.
