What about the red wire that was attached to the light green wire? What does that attach to? Thanks.

Now, to begin connecting the MAP to the Power Logger Analog Input Block1) Locate the the light green wire in the wiring bundle. It is the signal wire coming from the MAP and going to the LED boost gauge. Tee a wire into it. If you look at the picture and see the black tape, then you will see the red wire I soldered to the green wire. If you have some quality wire taps, you could use them to make the Tee connection rather than soldering. Note that the green wire does not need to be cut, and, the LED gauge will still work...particularly if you use the rebuilt boost gauge and tach from Caspers.

Thanks, yes I got that piece. I spliced a red wire into the light green wire. What does the other end attach to? All I see is Analog Input Block. Is this an obvious place on the powerlogger that I connect to?

If it weren't 98 freaking degrees with 97% humidity outside I would be doing this RIGHT NOW but instead I'm hiding inside trying to stay cool, my god it's HOT out there

Very good write up, I'm printing it out now and will probably do this asap (as soon as I won't die of heat stroke trying to do it haha).
