I would only run premix fuel if you have removed the oil met. pump form your motor.

Depends, if you have a mechanical oil metering pump, I would leave it in place. Probably clean it up though, can get some new lines. If it is electrical I would block it all off and premix, I dont think you can run it with the ECU.

S4 mechanical OMP will not be affected, however the S5's electrical unit can not be controlled by a Microtech. If you have an S5, remove the OMP, block it off and run premix.

The microtech has no way of controlling the electric OMP. I just left mine on and unplugged. I run about 1 ounce of premix per gallon of gas. So that would put it at about a 1:128 premix to fuel ratio.

I installed an S4 front cover, and mechanical OMP onto my S5 block when I was building it. I knew that I was going to use the LTx8 already, so the project was planned accordingly.
It was a pain in the a** to do the conversion, but its worth it. This way, I dont need to premix out in the cold when winter starts

You shouldnt be driving your car out in the winter in CT anyways! lol. Snow and rx7s do not mix. Especially rx7s that are modded and have standalones. lol
