2005 Edge VSS

Ok, so I did OHC mod, got everything hooked up, except the VSS wire, why? Cuz I dont have the blk/gry wire at the SJB or by the e-brake plug. I only saw one post suggesting pin 1 @ the pcm, is that the ONLY place the VSS can be tapped on an 05?

A good 6-9 degrees from ohc vs. ait readings. I know that ambient is cooler than ait, so ohc is probably like 9-14 degrees warmer than ambient Im guessing. I put the sensor in front/to the side of the A/C condenser in some pre-drilled holes...I figured it would be an acceptable location since thats where my silverado had it as well as my wife's toyota.
