Probably the same one. Goddamn was that a pain in the ass when I had to do it a second time because my boost gauge was a dud from the factory.

Are you guys talking about the plate sized black circle thing behind the brake fluid or am I totally lost about the grommet

The only one I can see is the one right behind the engine/manifold area

Nope just bend over the engine bay and reach back there. It's a *****. Only thing you can remove that will help is maybe your intake/charge pipe and crowl. Although for where your wires need to go I'm not sure that's the access point you want to use.

Owners manual:

Looks like slot 16 is free?


Then I stick the add a circuit 10 amp into Slot 16


And connect the red wire from the wideband and that's all it is to it?

Your making a lot more work for your self. You can just add the circuit into the fuse box inside your car and it will work exactly the same. Then you don't need to run as many wires into the car from the bay.

Yeah you will still need to run a wire to the ECU. But its better than running a bunch of wires. And the gromet your looking for is like 4-6 inches above the gas pedal...there is only one gromet there. push it out and stick something through then look for it in the bay.
