Best Mod so far and The cheapest.

So I decided to tackle the OHC mod this weekend, I got it at the local pull-a-part out of a MERC Mountianer and here is how it turned out.



And I only paid 8 Bucks for it.

That looks good. Good job on soldering everything. I didn't and went back and did it

You can pull those silly warning stickers off without switching them.

The temp sensor is one the drivers side behind the valance area I think. I took all of the wiring down the a-pillar to the first plug so if i want to unplug everything I can.

Take the console, the bracket that the console bolts/snaps into, take all the wiring you can....6" of the main pigtail should be plenty.

heres where the loction of the sensor on a expo/mounte...

You are looking at the left frame rail, unfront of the radsupport/headerpanel, behind the bumper, from the front.
