I wasnt sure where to post this, so Im putting it here for any of you who are interested in this mod. I developed a way to do it without cutting or splicing wires, or stressing the MAP plug itself. Ready? Here we go.

PARTS.
One dead cordless phone battery.
One 4.7v1w Zener Diode.
Small piece of etape.
Zip tie.
Shrink wrap tube of applicable size.

1. Strip the shrink wrap off the phone battery, and remove the leads and plug. Discard battery.

2. Bend the leads of your Zener Diode into a U, cut them down to about 1/4 inch, and insert the BANDED side in the BLACK wire lead plug, and the other end in the RED wire lead plug. The fit will be snug, but just carefully push it in. After full insertion, bend the diode over so it lays against the plug. Strip the wires as shown in the picture. Twist the raw wire so it wont fray and separate when you go to plug it in. What you see is the finished product.


3. Unplug your MAP plug, and run the wires up through the center. Bend the last 1/4inch of raw wire over so that they insert into the applicable plug holes. BLACK (Banded end) to the passengers side (Right hand) Hole (My wire is dark gray with a white stripe, yours may be different depending on the year) RED goes to the drivers side (Left hand) Hole (Red wire with a gray stripe) DO NOT PLUG INTO THE CENTER WIRE!. What you have after you plug it in should look like this.


4. Take the small piece of Etape and wrap it in a U over the end of your boost fooler, then apply the shrink tubing, shrink, and zip tie the neat lil apparatus up to your plug. Now what you have should look like this.


PRESTO! You now have made THE most invisible boost fooler ever. Congratulate yourself with a cold beer.

Oh, and I forgot to mention, no soldering/splicing into the wire harness, and you can extract it at your leisure if you so desire. Thank you, drive through.

Fine with me either way. I just wanted yall to know theres a way to do this mod without invading the wiring or stressing the plug out. Its worked superbly so far for me. Ive romped the crap out of it from a stop and from different speeds with no codes/faceplants, and thats with my MAP line routed to the hot side! I probably wont be putting the overboost annilator back on. :thumbsup

Heres an update concerning an unexpected.... Benefit?... Of this modification. Before the mod, when exceeding 100mph, the dash would "Die" (All dash gauges would snap to zero as if they were turned off) And, of course, thered be a SES light. Now, after this mod, at the same point the previous happened, only the speedometer snaps to zero, and no SES light. All other dash gauges continue working. The aftermarket gauges are unaffected either way, of course.
