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
