    No problem, but it was answered above.

    Sorry to bump an old thread, but this is huge for us California guys trying to get their OBDIIs legal.

    Where on the engine harness does the pressure sensor and the charcoal connect to?

The hard part is disassembling the interior to nicely route them along the passenger side wiring loom all the way into the trunk area cleanly/safely/securely. That was fun. Prepare to break door sill trim clips!
    What pins in the Engine Harness did you wire them into?

    Do you know where in the engine harness the two connections go to?

    I am a bit unclear...

    I see 2 harness connections. One sounds like it was extended through the car from engine bay to connect to that unit in fender well. The other one looks like it runs over to the driver side somewhere. Where does that second connection lead to?

    I am swapping S52 with OBD2 very soon and want to make sure I nail this! Thank you.

    EDIT:
    I just read the post again... both connections make their ways to the engine bay harness?
