You still need the resistor, said wiring never reaches the MS somehow, so there is nothing that the MS2 can do to help in that direction.

My fedex tracker is showing the same for an item I bought. I think they either broke the system, or something is seriously effed with fedex.

How longer would you prefer them to be? Genuine question here. I've installed two of these so far in local's cars and didn't have any problems with the wires being "short", however these being euro cars, the ECU location is the same as in the 90-93 cars.

Also, I would advise that you first test start the car before cutting and extending.

On a american nb the ecu is above the steering shaft. On my 99 it's fine as i will remove the stock ecu and everything else under the dash to lose weight and have easy access but the 02 the stock ecu will be left in for emotions testing easy switching.

But seeing as i'm going with the hot swap set up with my 99 and 02 and 2 different map tunes. I would need the ecu somewhere like the glove box or passenger side firewall to make it easy to quickly remove and install.

Which of these should i order?

You will need two of the normal (not the MS3X) wiring bundles, the top DB37 has 27 wires while the bottom one has 15 wires.

I would also recommend that you use TXL "thinwall" wiring instead - it is lighter, tougher and more flexible.

I know the connectors are the expensive parts. That's why cutting and extending is more cost effective.

b) Grey - Switchable tables. Connect this to a ground (through an on/off
switch) to switch between VE/Ignition tables.
c) Brown - Launch control. Connect this to a ground (through an on/off switch)
to switch launch control on/off.
d) Violet (purple) - Boost control low/high. Connect this to a ground

what if i'm not using any of these?

At the least use switchable tables. I make a 91 octane table for you when you can't run 93.

Hi Rev,
Thanks for everything so far. I needed to know what boost control valve you would use so I can start sourcing one.
Happy New Year!

Cars starts on first try (with out the car in gear) and smokes like a 50s , running richer then the gauge can read. Have to remove a butt load of fuel.

Be happy that it starts. I can make it run right in about 15 minutes. You're going to like this computer so much more than Failtronic.

don't do anything with them. Just tape them off so they cant accidentally touch a ground and trigger a switched table/launch.
