Had to send the F/IC back to AEM to get looked at. Would run good if I held the harness just right. Otherwise, was experiencing signal dropout, rough running, cel, etc., whenever I moved the harness around. Runs fine with the bypass plug installed. The bypass plug pins look to be larger that those on the F/IC which I think may have caused the sockets in the harness connector to enlarge.

Didn't like the way the A-pillar pod blocked the view so went with a TDR gauge panel. Slotted the inner shift boot to route the O2 cable through.

Yep exact same thing. Guess they're making some major bank on those.

The trim panel that goes around it all hold it in well too.

You can get one just like it on ebay. Or anplumbing.com sells them. Should be 20mm, pretty sure the civic uses the same thread. Glowshift sells them.

Haven't started yet. Patiently waiting to get my F/IC back from AEM - should be here this Thursday. Still trying to find out what if anything they did in the two weeks they had it. Regardless will be starting the install this weekend with pics to follow.

Just to follow up on the F/IC problems I'm having. AEM looked at the unit and couldn't find anything wrong with it and sent it back along with a new harness. Wired the new harness in and still having the same problem with the engine running rough/dieing when the unit is moved around. Runs fine with the bypass harness installed. Sent AEM some vids to show them.

Mine runs like stock with the bypass harness installed. Doesn't matter how much you shake, twist, etc., it doesn't miss a beat. I was hoping to have the fueling stuff working before installing the turbo but not gonna happen. May have to pick up a used voodoo card to get me going.
