From the picture, it looks like you have a bright flashlight in your face.

What exactly is the purpose of the Raptor shift light w/accessories?

The HUD one does not allow for any other sighting position than straight forward, with the light I can see it in my peripheral sight no problem. This aids in shifting while looking to the sides for on coming traffic and other Apps.

Thought I had this done, but my light would go out then come back on. Contacted Raptor and they updated the connections.

So do I try and re-install this or install the NEW one I just bought? MSD Shift light????

The MSD seems easy to install, the Raptor has the blue LEDs which I like so much better??

Now for some prep work,

Locate you #1 Coil (drivers side one all they to front of engine) remove plug from coil, carefully peel back tape.

The MSD pick up goes on the large outer pink wire (test by using a test light, key off light off, key on, light on) DO NOT TURN KEY ALL THE WAY ON, JUST TO WHERE GAUGES LIGHT UP ON DASH, DO NOT START CAR.

Remove plastic nut and fold back carpet towards the center console.

This is where I drill a hole to run wiring for an earlier project/under hood where it comes out.

Run your wire (PICK UP end) into the car.

Loosely run the pick up wire and the inserted this into a wire loom.

Connected the pick up per the install instructions.

Plugged back in the coil wire.

Only 3 wires to hook up, I srtipped back the wires on both ends.

Ran my light side wire through the side and then let it hang.

For the wiring, Connect Green to Green direct.

Ground (black) together into barrel crimp connector and then a single ground from the other end to the ground (i used the nearby bolt)

Hot Wire (red) together into barrel crimp connector and then a single hot wire from the other end to the fuse shown.

Program light and test. (you have 4 shift RPMs, # of cylinders (SET TO 1), and LEDs intesnity)

I set the setting to only 2000 RPMs (lowest you can go) to test it.

That's all there is to it.

Replace all your panels, covers and strut tower brace.

Drive car and enjoy.

Does the MSD have a LAUNCH function like a few of the others out there?
Looked at their site and I don't see a mention of it.

Only functions that I know of are you can program each gear and rev limit for the light to come on.

I had contacted them about the connectors....I got the answer back after I bought the MSD one, might go back to the Raptor....But here is the link for the wires on the ZL1..
