All I had to do was drill a couple of mounting holes in the inner fender for the ign controll.That part is plastic,so I ran an extra ground to the firewall from one of the mounting bolts just for insurance.
Total time for the change over was about 1 hour.(I`m slow and fumble fingered).
do I just cut and splice the TFI plug on the harness or do I have to do something else??
