[Es2] Wiring...conceptual question

IMHO, that's the harder, messier way.

If my memory serves me correctly, all of the IC connections run down to 
the T10/T5 connectors under
the relay panel in the drivers footwell.  (T10a and T5a BLACK if I'm not 

I made all of my connections/splices there... Much more wire to cut, and 
keeps it looking more "factory".

heh... not like anyone's gonna see it.  :-p

You've got it. The gauge pod connectors on the 3B harness are eliminated
altogether, except for the relevant wires which get spliced into the 
T26* connectors.
