I received my Shift-i.
I've readed a lot regarding the installation and i can't find anyone who installed this without the MSD...
And they all taped it on the green wire not the red/black...
I've been told by ecliptech that i should not run 3 wires from the coil cause i will pick up a lot of noise...
The only wire that needs to come off the coil pack is the trigger itself, red/black. Ground and power you can get off the radio harness or several other places in the dash.
I can guarentee that your shift light (without the msd) will not work off the green wire.
Find some temp power and ground for the light (aux power outlet is good), drag a temp wire from the coilpack red/black, fire the dang thing up see if it works.
Then commit to the final wireing.
I could go on for a good long bit about the different and then proper ways of modifiying auto wireing, however a proper barrel crimp tool, crimps and adhesive shrink are going to cost you more than the MSD in the first place.
So I'm just going to look away while you twist, solder and vinyl tape this thing back together.
I guess giving you current level of understanding in the electrical department,
I would recomend that you get the MSD for your application, it will be the lease amount of hastle and install risk.
You've invested a decent ammount of time in modifying the pod for the display itself, so don't cheese out the remainder of the install with a Hello Kitty splice job.

You name it, I've probably got that installed too...
