it must be the pink/black. i wish there was a way to test before cutting into the wire though

Ok. I think the ones it came with are good. I don't think they cut.

What's the best way to get from around the dash into the engine compartment.

The main wiring harness comes in under the dash, that's where DDM routed my boost gauge stuff.

If I can tap off the interior that would be ideal, but Bob doesn't seem to think that is possible.

I meant that there's already a place you can run more wires through the firewall, no need to cut a new hole.

Oh. Ok I'll take a look. I'm sure someone has a guide on the forums

238, did they route the boost leads along side of the harness (I tried that and failed) or within the bundle (didn't think of that).

Along side, I believe. It's an analog gauge, so it's just a small plastic tube.

I believe Phil is talking about the access hole on the right hand side of the firewall.  If you look at the firewall behind and above the battery you will see some silver tape.  Pull that loose and you should have an access hole.  Don't forget to replace the tape when you are done.

No, I'm talking about where the main wiring harness comes through the firewall underneath the dash on the driver's side.

I tried that - no luck. So I routed it elsewhere.

OK, cracked the hood and took a look. The cut a small hole in the rubber grommet and routed the line through that.

I just have to go try it. I can't really do stuff after work anymore. So maybe I'll try Saturday or Sunday.

I've been thinking about it, and I think I'm going to buy the 7-light one like you did. Two lights is more expensive, and gives you less information. Only issue is my car may be going back into the shop...

238, I think I detailed some of that earlier in the thread. I do plan on ordering one, but right now I am tiling a hallway and the kitchen. Spent the last two days (way LONG ones) at the Kansas City free health clinic as a volunteer. So, shift lights are going to have to wait a bit. If I need to get the microscope out again to look at the schematics I will be glad to do that. That said, I really do thing that picking up the signal at the coil pack is the way to go.

Got my shift light in yesterday. Going to take a look under the hood tonight and see if I can figure out how to hook this thing up.
