Thanks--looks good. Also, how do you set the ladder gauge. I want to lower the shift points.

Knobs on the back of the pod, 1 click counter clockwise will will lower by 100 rpm. That info is in the 05 owners manual, not sure of the 04 book...

Amishland----great job--well worth the money.

Question the pink wire to position 30---where in the heck is thirty since
the wire block is not numbered. I looked at at the picture and it looked
like the wire was in between the two large orange ones and the small yellow.

It's working so I guessed correctly??

Mine had the number printed on one end of each row. So you had to count left or right to get to the number you wanted. If it's working right, it's hooked up right!

I just sent you a reply, I have your kit ready, and will take a few more PMs if there is interest. Remember guys these take me a few hours in front of the TV watching football on the weekends so give me some notice if you want a kit.

I will give out ship dates now when I recieve payment for the kits. This will allow me to stay up to date with the changing demand for harness kits.

No, not at all. Just have to remove the original steering column cover, run the 2 wires to the engine bay, and run a couple of power wires to the right side of the console. Right area next to the passenger's feet, sorta like where the fuse box is in relation to the driver's feet. Done.

If you're talking about the comp package, you don't need anything other than the gauge, and the harness. The two wires that run to the engine area get all the signals right from the PCM, for boost and rpm.

OH! You're talking about replacing the current line that you already tapped into! That's a pain in the ass, I guessed twice, and was wrong both times. The second one was just a LITTLE bit too big, but I used it and just made sure I had a zip tie on each end. It popped off on me once before I clamped it. The hose I used was actually made for windshield washer fluids. I picked up that, and one meant for vacuum line, and the vacuum line 'kit' was a little too small.

You could cut a small piece of the hose and take it in with you. That's what I did the first time, and then the moron at the parts store gave me one that was smaller. It looked similar, but it was smaller. I'd rather have too big than too small.
