Default Lc-1 install

I am about to imstall my lc-1 in order to replace my Zeitronix. I was just wondering where you guys are placing the Lc-1 unit and where you are routing the wires into the car.
On my zeitronix I pulled the wires through the firewall. But theese wires Are way to short and i am not shure i i want to splice wires under the car?

Everyone is different. Some have it in the engine bay, under the car, inside the car.

Some hookup wire, solder, and heat shrink can take car of that. Put it in a wire wrap...

Are you routing it through the shifter boot?

I have mine zip tied to the transmission and wired through the shift boot. I checked under the car and the lc1 is still clean and protected. I like it.

My unit is behind the radio and the sensor goes through the shift boot.

My unit is under the center console and the sensor wire is routed through the shift boot. I used velcro to attach it to the inner side of the console. Input/output wires run out the back of the console (where the trunk release is) and under the passenger seat.
