I salvaged mine from the stock ECU Lot of desoldering involved.

I'll let braineack chime in with the correct method however, he usually has a few laying around.

aw, where's my post?! I said either onlinecomponets.com, and a few other online sources (see my how-to for sources) or you could look into the diybob.

I like getting the 64 pin or 72 connectors so you can use the middle plug (as seen on my harness) for extra inputs/outputs.

lead bending tool is a waste of $$$.

maybe they have 72-pin connectors in stock, but onlinecomponents still requires a $30 min pruchase.

The lead bending tool would be kinda handy, except all of the holes on the MS board are closer together than the tightest notch on the tool. seemed to kinda defeat the purpose.
