That is a cable for an early series T-U47 citizen monitoring system. The Central Scrutinizer is watching you.

I see a cool-air intake, a nos fogger system, it's got a t4 turbo Dominique, I see a AIC controller, it has direct port nitrous injection.

Yeah, and a standalone fuel management system... not a bad way to spend ten thousand dollars.

Dealership car lot theft alert device. They are cheap enough that they don't bother to uninstall them when they sell the car. When they leave the lot for the night they turn on the system and it will set off the alarm if a car leaves.
