Question where can I find an initialization connector for an 02

Would anyone be able to tell me where I might be able to find a blue initialization connector for an 02 wrx. I got an AP v1. I am thinking it would be best to get it from cobb directly but not totally sure any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Eric

Or you can get one from here:

Seriously, it's pretty easy to just make a short jumper wire with spade ends. Need a little more finesse to plug it in than the ready-made bits, but you'll have to sort out how much time the $10 price is worth to you.

1 paperclip, bent into a U shape. jam into connector. done.


if you want to get more advanced, get a short length of wire, 4-6 inches, and put spade connectors on it. those will slide into the factory connector.

on the 02-03, the jumper goes from the connector closest to the clip(on the plug), to the bottom left (as you look at it)

bump for more clarification on same issue....

so that's all it is, a shorting jumper?

can someone tell me what size female spades are used for this, i need to make the 02 'connector' (blue one) not waiting for shipping or paying for that matter when i've got wire, soldering skills, and a radio shack to drive by every day....
