    Ive been wanting to repurpose my brake lining light because its already in the cluster, and the wiring for it is literally right next to my c101. It has two wires. I had planned on connecting one of the two to the x20 pin8 IIRC, and to ground the other but someone told me that wouldnt work

    ^ That's a signal wire. The other goes to ground.

    Ive been in the planning stages of the check engine light forever. The fact that its one wire confuses me (im a retard when it comes to wiring obviously)

    I didn't have any documentation when I BAR'd my MR2. As long as it's not stolen you should be fine.

    I've always wondered this. I asked awhile back on the forum and just got told to look it up on the dmv website, I did a search didn't find anything

    Obviously you'll need to wire up the x20/x6031 side as well.

    +1 I have an 84 as well. I added an LED to the cntr console because i don't have a stock cluster. I wired it directly to the Ecu. Although I think I fucked up because I read the Ecu provides ground not power.
    Right now the cel is on all the time.

    Anyone know what pin on the red label 413 provides ground for the CEL?

    So what did those of you with a s52 do? I have the 506 ecu, I'm also wondering about ob2 headers installed with block off plates.

    DON'T go to the one in Alameda. The guy who used to work there was laid back so I've heard, new guy is no good. Failed me twice, first time for a very slow leaking radiator (didn't leak a drop while I was there) and second for not warming up the car after over an hour of sitting, small puff of smoke at start up (only happens on steep inclines, which I was since it was on the dyno) and a knock sensor code even though he didn't show me and no codes came up on stomp test.

    I passed BAR first time with a M50NV swap with after market cone first on the MAF, modified OBD2 exhaust manifolds, and stock cats from the M50NV. I went to the South Sacramento BAR station and a nice gentleman gave me a BAR sticker and I left with a HUGE smile on my face.

    M3 ews delete chip is actually a copy of stock 506 chip. So if you get 506 DME you don't have to do anything to it.
