    I'm not too sure but I think your supposed to hook that up to your o2 sensors.

    You could ask sarge, but I would go off of my rear o2wires (purple wire, white wire), for signal (I have no cats) so they are just sticking in there plugging up the holes, im hookingup sims to clear the low cat code

    left side gives you left bank, right side gives you right bank. they should be very close, if you want to be sure you could run 2 a/f gauges, one off of the right one off of the left, but if your just running one gauge either will work for you. I have not done it yet but im going to run one off each bank, call it over kill if you want, but it will give me more to look at while i'm going through my (a.d.d. and o.c.d.) moments

    oh, If you completely un hooked you o2s you will probably have to hook the heater circuit back up( two brown wires)

    There is an adaptor towards the bottom of that link for the narrowband install.
    It is a harness that makes life EASY for you.

    I guess the link requires model specific car...which is why it didn't work.
    But that is what I was refering too.
    Will make it so you don't have to cut anything to install.

    If you're gonna go the cutting route get some IDC's (Insulation Displacement Carriers) i.e: scotch locks. They will make it much easier, not to mention neater and you won't have to worry about connection problems. hell, if you need any pm me, I have a bajillion of em.
