    engine bay help!

    need some help guys, ill be working on my engine bay this coming week, just have few questions before i start everything.
    ill be doing the wire mod, installing fuel rail covers, painting the engine bay, painting the brackets behind the bumper, and the head lights, also got some battery, pcm, and fuse box covers..
    also i want to do the cruise control mod, thats where i need the help.. i was readinf the write up on that but kinda confused still..
    so the module goes behind the pcm?

    The PCM is easy to remove, just have to wiggle it around a bit and she'll come right up out. It is not a bad idea to tape off the paint in that area so as not to scratch anything. I mounted the cruise module by installing a wire clamp to the firewall with an existing bolt and then wrapping two zip ties around the module and through the clamp. I am pretty sure there is a picture of this in the write up I did. Are you looking at the one on our site?

    Thanks jeff
    Yes I was. Looking at the one you did. I looked at it again. And I saw the pic you talking bout.
    One more question. I'm sure I have to unplug the battery right?
    When I plug the PCM and battery back. Does the car will start right up or will take few mins for the computer to work fine?

    Thanks alot

    should start right up unless you break something.

    when done

    It may start and stall on the first turn of the key. It does take it a bit to even out and it may idle up and down initially after the battery has been disconnected. The complete re-learn does take a while, so just start it up and allow it to idle a little followed by some normal driving before going crazy.
