Yes, there will be a dummy plug in place of the VVTuner. The dummy plug needs to be there or the engine won't run as the VVTuner intercepts the crank/cam sensors. When you are ready to install the VVTuner, just remove the dummy plug and plug the VVTuner in.

Not a bad deal compared to $799 I'm paying for from another vendor.

Yeah, I realize it is a problem, however two-color thinwall cables are 3x more expensive and custom ordered. So for the ~50 wires in that harness, I do have to reuse the same colors for many functions.

Wow, I feel sorry for you when you have to make one. I would hate having to use mostly the same color wires for everything.

I use about 10 different colors. So its not that much of a problem for me, otherwise I would pay the 3x price and be done with it.

FYI I would have dropped another $50 to have my harness already be about 4ft.

I hear you, which is why I now make them much longer. Why 4ft? Glove box?

So I've started working on installing mine and I currently have two questions. First since my car is a 96 I'll need to run the wires to control the VICS but where do I connect them at the ECU? Second do I have to have a functioning clutch switch since I bypassed mine a long time ago?

1) Since your car doesn't have VICS from the factory, you will have to solder a wire to the top connector on the ECU. Just solder a wire in pin #10 (they are labelled if you look very closely), connect that wire to one pin of the VICS solenoid, then connect the other wire of the solenoid to a switched 12V power supply.
2) Do you actually have two clutch switches there? If you do, no problem at all.

I'm going to be installing mine soon, Rev can you please send me the instructions to sr20ve at gmai l . c om thanks.

Has anyone installed theirs in a US spec NB mounted in place of the factory ecu yet? How difficult was the access? I'd rather not extend all the wires like Jeff did if its not 100% necessary.

I'm trying to figure this out too. I didn't know it was even an issue until I started trying to install everything this past weekend. Rev suggested making a bracket that will integrate with the bracket holding the OEM unit in place. I'm not sure if I can get that done on my own. Extending the wires sounds like a bit of a chore too...

Email sent.

Can someone provide measurements of the stock brackets and mounting hole positions on the stock ECU? I'll see if I can fabricate something.

I'll try to get you details on the OEM bracket, but it might not be for a couple of days.

On a related note, I'd like to stop by and pick up a MAP hose on my way home from work. Does anyone know what the I.D. for the hose is? Also, I'm assuming I'll need at least 5-6 feet of hose to make it into the car and under the steering wheel (for a '99)? Anyone know how much I'll actually need? Does the hose material matter? Any vacuum hose will do?

Thanks
