Installing Start-button, few Q's!!! NOW PICS! 5/24/08

i read the how-to that b16sir wrote...but i still have a couple q's.

interestingly enough i saw that it listed for like 200$ or something, and mikes employee cost was like 107....

im just curious i found this one on steeda's site and it looks to be the exact same thing for 130 lol. so will it work?
http://www.steeda.ca/catalogue_product.asp?pid=3713

im a little fuzzy on how to wire it because i see people adding relay's for the s2000 ones, will i have to do the same for this one? or is it just take the 2 wires from the start button and splice them into the starter wires on the car...

no you dont need the relay... IIRC you just have to cut that Gray/blackstripe in the steering column... and that'll make you have to use the start button... but if you just tap into the Gray/blackstripe wire then you can use the start button OR the key...
