Commander install question...

Whats the best way to tap into the coolant sensor? I was looking at it today in prep for installation and was having a hard time reaching it. Thanks for any tips.

Thanks guys. I got it all hooked up and everything seems to work fine. I ended up tapping the wire for the coolant temp sensor further up the harness where it was a bit easier to access. I did the same with the MAP sensor. Now all I got to do is get the A-pillar mount installed and button it all back up.

Next project... test pipe and tuner.

Cool good to hear! On the A-piller mount I had to file just a bit on the top to make it fit right so just a heads up

Yeah it pushed the grab handle just enough that it wouldnt suck back up tight and left a bit of a gap. Hopefully yours will be good to go though
