Default Stupid Plug locating

I can not for the life of me find one of the required plugs to do my parallel install.
It is Tyco/AMP p/n 174514-6 on the site it says Aesco is the only one of their dealers who currently have it but they require a minimum $100 order.

If anyone is planning on ordering parts to make their harness, would you be interested in ordering together so we can get these? Or does anyone know another place to get it. I am all out of ideas.

have you tried a sample request from tyco/amp?

have you tried asking boomslang if you can buy just one?

etc.?

I have requested to tyco, and I called boomslang today and they were short to answer "no"

Braineack- I have a 99 but if I get an earlier then 96 CAS I should be okay without it then?

You need the middle connector when building the boomslang just for the coolant wire. You should run a separate wire for the GM IAT sensor you'll be using. If you're not going to use a knocksense then you don't need the knock wire.

That is a real pisser that everyone is sold out of that connector. Kind of a required component of my kits when i actually am building them.

Using a 90-97 CAS will not affect your need for a middle connector. He is saying if you have a 90-93 miata there is no middle connector used in the stock ECU harness.

You can see why the middle connector is needed in the below diagram.

Chopping up the stock harness isn't all that bad, especially if you do it for just one wire (CLT). Make sure you cut it far from the connector though so you can resolder it together if you need to.

some hondas and many mazdas have these connectors, you can get them that way.
You could just buy a harness from Boomslang.

Rich,

If a certain (you) were to put his location in his profile and list his mods in his signature, I would be willing to shoot a 174514-6 over to you. I assume that you will comply, so I'll PM you my email address since I don't think you have enough posts to PM me a reply.

[Thread HiJack] Does anyone know of a supplier in the UK who will have the parts for a homebrew boomslang? I really am lothed to shell out $139 for one from Boomslang.us + whatever they will charge for shipping to the UK. Has anyone in the UK already ordered bits and have some left over due to "minimum order rules"? Thanks in advance. [/Thread HiJack]
