I just finished installing a lotus cup engine/supercharger and I can't figure out where this goes. My NA engine didn't have this plug, at least I do not see it. Any ideas? Auto part Fuel line Automotive engine part Engine Vehicle
. I am looking everywhere and I don't know where to connect it to. I started the car and everything is running smooth but the check engine is on. Any help will be appreciated.

Two responses:

- It's part of a grooming kit that is supposed to be used to trim that long ass cokespoon fingernail.

or:

- Sorry, I can't see anything because you are wearing the One Ring to Rule Them All.

Lol, it is not for crack, but I see how you are thinking. I only have it in one hand, but it is to check for burrs or surface finish on metals which is part of my job. I am just too lazy sometimes to get the profilometer to check parts with. Here is a better picture. Auto part Fuel line Vehicle Engine Car

It is part of the wiring that came with the 07 cup255 engine. My car is and 06 exige NA.
The engines are all the same, regardless of the designation of the Exige model. As far as I know the wiring on all 07+ Exige models is also the same, but I can't say for certain.

If you stand behind the car this wire is in the right side, close to the firewall and beside the alternator. It is no long enough to go to too many places, the other plugs are different and this one only has 2 wires.

I looked in my engine bay but I have the RLS 3-chamber IC shroud and the hoses in that area so I can't see much and don't have time to investigate further tonight. Sorry.

I have the car at my friends shop, so I will not be able to get to it until Monday again. The engine runs very smooth though. I also have another additional plug I don't know what to do with because it attaches to the canister close valve and the 07 charcoal canister doesn't come with one. Item number 6.

That was the next thing, I mean checking the check engine light code but believe it or not the Snap-on Solus Ultra Scanner doesn't have lotus as an option. When I asked the snap-on guy ( who just happened to stop by) why Lotus doesn't appear as an option in the scanner even though we had the European car option, he said that snap-on doesn't have lotus, ferrari or lambo because there are not that many or common and they usually just go to the dealership. My Actron CP9580 doesn't have lotus as an option either but at least it has a global OBD2 option that I will try on Monday when I bring it to my buddy's shop.

I know this plug...or knew. I forgot, but it's plugged in down there.

One thing to note is that the cable is just as long as it needs to be, so the connector has to be close.
