now secound just do yourself a favor and order the wiring harness http://store.summitracing.com/defaul...=egnsearch.asp

because by the time you buy connectors 12 gauge wiring, relay 2 inline fuse holders, fuses you will have spent the $30... now are you going to run all 3 that you bought or just the 2?
