It'll be hidden behind the center console under the stereo when not in use. When in use, it'll be a magnetic mount to my console ashtray. Just forward of the shifter.

Probably time to re-hash what this is all about.

"F" is my high-speed fan override. Rather than running a wire through the firewall to ground the relay, I'm going straight to the PCM (which is in the cabin) for this.

"160" is for when I'm running the 160 thermostat. Mine is a higher flow rate than normal (wider when open), and it'* bypass-drilled as well. The 160 mode works like the ZZP e-stat, and adds about 20 to the temperature being sent to the PCM so I don't run in fuel enrichment mode all the time.

"ADV" is a bypass switch to enable the potentiometer (dial), allowing it to control timing advance. This is VERY dangerous considering the high boost levels I'm running now. It gives me the ability to advance the timing as far as the PCM will allow which is HIGHER than a stock PCM to answer Blazin'* earlier question, since I'm running the Jet Stage 2 PCM. This feature is more for testing than anything.

Default Fan override

You are amazing. I really interested in the Fan override thorough the PCM. Any pics on what wire to ground? Are is there more to it than that.

The high-speed fan override is easily done with the relay under the hood. I don't suggest digging into the PCM wiring harness for this until I get it done and tested.

Many of us have used the relay for this. Try a search on the top menu bar. You should find dozens of topics.

Nothing like adding a little drama to life, eh?

Just make sure you don't get any kids with hyper hands in that damn car while you've got the controller out. I would suggest heavy medication for any persons who might fiddle with ***** and switches while riding in Zilla.

My high boost levels this week since the last pulley change have:

1. Sucked my K&N RX-4750 filter inside-out.
2. Sucked the bolted-on 5" diameter exhaust tips off 7 ricers.
3. Sucked a depression into my hood (WCBFers will see it).
4. Pulled two centerline reflectors off Highway 20 on my commute.

There are 4 small children missing in Albany, Oregon. Am I running too much boost?

I'm not sure I'll have the box done before WCBF, but I'm going to try. I still need to fabricate my final 'additional idler' bracket. This one has held up for 1200 miles, but the loads it'll see at the dragstrip are extreme.
