Well it's not made for automotive, But electric wire is electric wire if it's the same guage/strand thickness, the guy was just an idiot.

apparently, i think there was something wrong with him cuz he kept saying he doesnt give a f**k what i do with it and he said shouldnt i be out chasing pussy and holding beers, and i said that was last night, but yea he was weird, but anyways, back on topic what should i do with the red thing that connects to the positive side with the plugs?

You have to hook it up or your car will not start... (it also powers the headlights) it's not that hard... some crimpible copper ends from the parts store and a bolt should do it.

awesome thread by the way. Does this bring a lot more response in performance, cooler air ey. Why do they even put the filter next to the headers in the first place?

tru, thats what i did....i got everything going good, im just connecting some hoses and cleanin **** up and ill be done, everything else seems to going fine, but yea for me this is not as easy as kenrik said it was lol....this **** is hell cuz i had to do some custom **** but puttin the battery in the back was pretty much the easiest part, the intake part is a whole nother story...i started at like 2 and its like 4 30 now...but i shud be done by 5, hope everything turns out good, and it is pretty ghetto, ill take some pics when im done

The IACV is on your intake and you can adjust it with a flathead screw driver.. turning it to the left lowers the idle turning it to the right highers it.

It was a very easy mod for me but then again I have the KA24E and the whole intake area is quite different (more open)
 
yeah i have that same problem my 240, i just did a 98' engine swap 2day and my car idles around 1500 rpm i'll fix it 2morrow i'm 2 tired and it's 2dark 2 see the engine bay right now. Good tip on that battery relocation i'll do it 2morrow.

Man I missed a lot being away for a week. Took me forever to read this whole thread. Yeah man nice job on your setup. Lets not have another problem like before lol. You should also find something to tie the battery down with, you can also go with a smaller, lighter battery like I told you when you came over that one time. I gotta get my car up and running again so I could chill with you guys. Oh yeah call me up on a "rainy day." :D

On the SOHC the IACV is on the very back of the top part of the ECCS, I really don't know where it is on the DOHC but it's somewhere on the intake and it has two wires hooked upto it.
