FI done right will tweaK on the fly if set up right.
as for filling that thing with silicone, if your really wanting to do that hit an electronics shop or mail order outlet and get "potting compound" it is that wierd hard gell stuff but can be removed if needed.
now my opinion, go for it , I am a natural tinkerer why rebuild stock when you can do something funky
Yea, I can't seem to stop tinkering. Is the potting compound purple in color, or colour for our canadian friend? I seem to recall seeing it in one of our ECU's. The inspiration for this project came from a Charlie at Function first motorsports. He makes some truly amazing stuff, and rarely leaves well enough alone. He recently finished a Hyabusa turbo powered tube frame hillclimber. Check out his site at.....
Thankfully I'll have access to his services during the project.
