DO you have the complete wiring harness from the computer? Cause that's what I plan on doing instead of using the frankenstien method?

pretty simple job, i just put a Ebayed one on my car, if you dont have all the wiring harnesses, you can find them on ebay. just remove the 1 bolt from the computer holder under the driver side kick panel, run the jumper wire thru the firewall right above the same area, (cut a small hole in the grommet) hook up your sensor and reinstall it. pretty simple, just dont have fat hands, cause if you plan on putting the bolt back in the computer holder bracket it's sorta of a pain but not too bad. dont frankenstein it. if you got a good deal on the setup itself, dont cut corners and not use the right harnesses. (now this is assuming that you have the aftermarket one. not sure of the factory one and if the jumper wire that runs to the sensor itself is integrated into that computer wiring harness)

go to www.autozone.com and then go under repair info and look for wiring diagrams, they will have a list of them once you enter the make and model and year of the car you have. the wiring diagrams will show which wire goes to which pin on the ECU.
