Default Why does this say "hsould be installed by a professional"?

Hey people, I just got my chip, the one JC Sports used to sell but is now sold by subysports.com and Larry Ganz. Why does the instructions say should be installed by a professional? It seems to me it it just splicing of wires and soldering them together maybe. Am I missing something or is it more detailed than that? Also how much do you think a shop would charge to install it? Thanks. Here is the chip:

Just so in case something goes wrong by the DIY'er, the company that sold the product would not be held liable.

Default Nah, it's easy

I wouldn't worry about having a professional install it. Actually, I didn't even solder the connections. *flame suit on* I have installed quite a few car stereos and have never had a crimp connection come undone, so I crimped all the connections. *flame suit off* It took me about 45 minutes because I wanted to be sure not to mess up and pick the wrong pins. There is little room for error with the existing amount of wiring we have to manipulate.

Could someone post me the instructions for the wiring also because the one I got in the mail was photocopied and I can't read it... plus it has parts crossed out etc. It's for the MY98 RS. Also (this is gonna sound stupid) where is my ECU? On the passenger side near the center console?

Yes, disconnect the battery whenever you are working on the electrical system.

The ECU is under the passengers foot rest. You gotta pull up the carpet and unbolt it from the floor.

Unhappy

For a $250 product, you'd think Larry could afford to include decent instructions. The Ganzflow intake is a brainless install and even it had very exact instructions (which I ignored) that you could download from his site.

How about it Larry, can you put up a .pdf file with good instructions?

Yeah Larry do you have a file for it? Or do you possibly have the wiring setup? If you help me out I'll buy your pulleys for MY98 next... and I'll buy them next week.

no offense to anyone here....but if you're sketchy as to where the ECU is, perhaps you should have someone who's done this before at least help you....there's alot of friggin' wires down there, unless you don't get flustered it's kinda easy to mess up, however unmessing up is easy so do it to it cowboy
