j&s knock questions?

where did you guys put it?(pic please) and how did you find the wires that i need to get to? i have been looking but it pretty dark from the storm that about ti hit me TROPICAL STORM ALBERTO.

i think i have a spot, right behind the glove box on the fire wall? is that spot good? but on the other hand i didnt get the guage so i cant see if i am getting knock. so is ther another way i can still have a light like the acholy injections? i'm just thnking out loud.

if there any other info i would like to know about installing it. i read everything else about it.

1. When you say wires, do you mean the connection between the J&S and ECU ?

If you bought it from J&S, you should have received a wiring diagram with details.

If not, these are the pin numbers and ECU wiring I used.
NOTE: Mine is a Non-SVTF so yours might be different.
Make sure to take the cover off the ECU harnest connector so you are sure you are using the correct wires. There are duplicate color coded wires in the ECU harnest and you don't want to use the wrong ones.

I looked for a decent mount location but I just installed mine to the glovebox with some velcro.

If you didn't get the knock gauge, reading the LED on the J&S itself isn't really made for realtime monitoring but I guess you could try.

I would try and get the knock monitor if you can. Makes it easy to tell when you're knocking and timing is being pulled.

well i was talkin about the wires from ecu and to the j&s, but i dont know if eveyone has this. on my ecu i have a bolt going intot he ecu but the bolt doesnt seem like it comes out of the ecu? so i cant see the number on the back of the connector. if i had my camera i would show you.

and im going to remove the light in the j&s and move it up where i can see it. john from j&s wrote saying you can remove it just run a wire and ground. so that not to hard
