Climb under the dash, and there they are...

I found them in the parking lot of a local pharmacy where I bought a flashlight from. Basically to make a long story short. I got my AP, couldn't wait to get home to install it, ran into the first place I saw to buy a flashlight to look under my dash...yaddi yaddi yadda...I have a 93 octane stage 1 tune...

You are looking at the wrong green connectors. There might be multiples, depending on your car I guess.

Don't forget you have to connect the Cobb init connector as well. It should have come with your AP.

I believe some people on Cobbs forums have said some cars have green connectors in both the drivers and passengers side foot wells.

These connectors only contain 1 conductor. They are loose just waiting for you to plug 'em together.

im going to try tomorrow and look in the passenger foot well or side panel and hope that those connectors are not together and then plug them together and then go out the directions as they are depicted

What year and model is your car.

2002, 2003, 2004 WRX... will all have the init. connectors.(don't know about 05 wrx)

I know the 2005 STi doesn't have the init. Connectors and I'm pretty sure that the 2004 STi doesn't have them either.

The two green connectors are not hard to find.... when you get them connected you will start hearing the fans and stuff making noise... At least I did. Not sure but I think if they are connected your car wouldn’t start.

For some reason I doubt you would have to connect anything on the passenger side.... I'm sure Cobb would have let that be known (I may be wrong though)

The absolute best thing to do would be to call Cobb.... If you are having trouble..... I would just think it is better to ask them just incase.

WrxTream:
You can drive with the green connectors together, the car will run fine but you'll get a flashing CEL. Don't ask me how I know this...
