over on hyundaiaftermarket.org their is a guide to help you (in case you didnt know). The only thing I suggest is to solder all the wires and not use wiretaps like the guide suggest. I made that mistake with my boost controller

alright thanks for the tip, i just bought a new solder tool so i will put it to use, what would be the negative side effects of using wire taps though?

One is not all of the wires your tapping into are the same size, making it a bit of pain. Other than that the wiretaps dont provide the best connection and when your trying to read things like throttle position, rpm etc You need a solid connection! I think they are great for all sorts of things, just not a good idea for tapping into ecu wires. It took about a month and they got loose in my car....

i've had the same experience as omg with my AFC and A/F Gauge. especially with the TPS wire on the AFC.

on a side note, Radio Shacks connectors are a lot higher quality (or at least i've had a lot more success with them) than some found at Home Depot, WalMart, etc. and at a comparable price.

i got a cold heat soldering iron for christmas and i'm just waiting for my next project to test it. :smoking:
