The gray wires are for data logging hardware, they are used to output an analog signal. I use them for my HP Tuner software.

For power, I run a tap-a-fuse in the engine bay fuse box, under the ignition fuse. It goes to a relay which supplies power off the power wire beside the fuse box. Gets clean power.

So glad I got mine! Definitely worth it people!

Ok, I will give that a try. Any idea to why my tap-a-fuse going to the spare ignition fuse (#17 i think) in the steering wheel fuse box isn't working?

It might be a momentary switch, the one in the engine bay supplies the full 12 volts for the ECU.

I use the Power connector in the Center Console for Power

I just used that and same thing- just lights up for a second. I tried grounding it on another bolt too and reconnecting the data cables. I think the sensor module might be defected. I'll contact PLX and let you guys know

Oh hell no! I hardly ever drive it anymore. It still only has 29,300 on it since my round trip commute to work is now under 3 miles daily and I have three other (paid for) vehicles that need exercise occasionally. I needed the car for work when I bought it: I don't "need" it any more. Kind of sad, but it should go to a good home that appreciates it.

Nice to hear from you too, VentMan.

$15K is a bargain for that car!

Someone should jump on that folks- a "turn key" IPF Camaro V6 prepped by one of the best! Won't last long at that price.

Not giving it away. It's a 1LS, and there's just not a lot of interest in an M6 car, it seems. It IS badass, though.
